These are the eternal basics of makeup…
Skincare is the foundation of a perfectly executed face beat. That is why you need to moisturize and prime before you begin. Once this has been taken care of, you then need to conceal or apply your foundation if you have nothing to conceal. Then reach out for your powder and a bit of blush if you so desire.
If you have “perfectly” shaped brows, you might save yourself some penciling time. Otherwise, you need a well-sharpened or retractable eyebrow pencil to draw your brows into the desired shape or just to fill in scanty brows. Be sure to be light-handed with the pencil so you don’t over-apply then have to start all over again.
Depending on the event, you can decide to try your hands on eyeshadows to make your eyes pop. Finish off with mascara for elongated lashes but be careful so as not smudge your entire makeup look.
Once done, it’s time to make your lips shine with a lip gloss of choice or add a touch of color with your lipstick. Remember, when starting out on the path of makeup, less is always more. If unsure, always go for a shade darker than your natural lip undertone or stick to nudes.
Perfectly-executed glam beat, even for a beginner, come with having to know how to blend properly using the right tools. This is why you need a variety of brushes for your concealer, foundation, brows, eyeshadow, and more. Having a brush for each part will save you the time of cleaning one brush to reuse and will also help you avoid ruining your makeup.
