There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to apply makeup, but if you are an amateur, a little help goes a long way. We often find ourselves confused as to what to put on first and what to avoid for that perfect look. And sometimes, no matter how long you have been applying makeup for, you are not entirely 100% sure of the order.

Here’s the steps you need to follow for that immaculate look every day…



Prime your Face

After the cleansing and moisturizing, primer is what your face needs. Preparing your skin before you put on makeup is always a good idea because a good base helps your makeup stay for longer and gives you a perfect look. Primer creates a perfect barrier between your face oils and makeup and help the latter stay put.

A lot of women apply concealer first but that just makes the look heavier and patchy at times. Always begin with a foundation so that the concealer needs to be applied to the required places only. Ranging from medium to full coverage, there are a lot of foundation options to help you conceal imperfections easily. A mousse is also a good choice for better coverage and light feel.

Once you are done with the foundation, you will be surprised to find out that the concealer only needs to be applied to certain areas like those pesky dark circles and a few blemishes making their way out of the first layer of makeup. Dab some to the specific areas and watch your skin becoming flawless with each step.

Always remember to blend; it is the key to get that perfect look!

Now is the time to set it all well to survive the day long struggle of yours. With a brush, dab compact all over your face. Compact helps conceal any greasiness on your face and also helps hold the makeup for longer. It is a fine way to avoid looking shiny and achieve a matte look.

Brow Pencil

Once that’s done, move to your brows and fill them in the desired shape. A lot of us ignore doing that but once you start to fill them, you would be surprised to see the difference they make in completing your over-all look. Get your brows on fleek and watch the magic unfold.

It’s time to show your eyes some love and prepare them to caste the magic. Applying eyeliner not just gives your eyes an outstanding look but also completes your makeup. You can also put on some mascara for the dramatic appearance or just keep it simple.

Bolder eyes mean your lips shall look neutral to balance the look or vice versa. For a matte and longer lasting lip color, dab some loose powder onto your lips and keep ’em stain free for the entire day.

The final touches now! For the gorgeous rosy cheeks, dab some blush on the apple of your cheeks and that’s all. Now feel proud of all hard work you have done and look beautiful and flawless all day long.
