How to prep your skin before Makeup??

Preparing the skin before applying makeup is essential for a flawless and long-lasting finish. The process typically involves several steps:
  1. Cleansing:
    Begin by cleansing the face with a gentle cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and impurities. This step ensures a clean canvas for makeup application.
  2. Exfoliation (if needed): Exfoliate the skin using a mild exfoliate to slough off dead skin cells. This helps in achieving a smoother texture and even skin tone.
  3. Toning: Apply a toner to re balance the skin’s pH levels and tighten pores. This step helps in preparing the skin for better absorption of subsequent products.
  4. Moisturizing: Hydrate the skin by applying a suitable moisturizer. This step is crucial to keep the skin nourished, prevent dryness, and create a smooth base for makeup.
  5. Primer: Use a makeup primer specific to your skin type (like hydrating, mattifying, or pore-minimizing) to create a smooth surface for makeup application. Primer helps in filling in fine lines, pores, and creating a barrier between the skin and makeup, ensuring a more extended wear time.
These steps not only help in prepping the skin but also contribute to a flawless makeup application, ensuring the makeup lasts longer and looks more polished throughout the day.

 

Basic steps of Makeup:-

  1. Prep Your Skin: Start with a clean, moisturized face. Apply a suitable primer to create a smooth base for makeup.
  2. Foundation: Choose a foundation that matches your skin tone and apply it evenly using a makeup sponge, brush, or fingertips. Blend it well for a natural look.
  3. Concealer: Apply concealer to cover any blemishes, dark circles, or imperfections. Blend it gently with a makeup sponge or brush.
  4. Setting Powder: Use a translucent setting powder to set your foundation and concealer. This helps in controlling shine and setting your makeup for a longer duration.
  5. Bronzer/Blush: Apply bronzer or blush to add warmth or color to your cheeks. Use a fluffy brush to blend it properly for a natural finish.
  6. Eye Makeup: Start with an eyeshadow primer to make your eye makeup last longer. Apply eyeshadow shades of your choice and blend them well. Add eyeliner, mascara, and if desired, false lashes for definition.
  7. Eyebrows: Fill in your brows using an eyebrow pencil, powder, or gel to define and shape them.
  8. Lips: Finish your makeup look by applying lipstick, lip gloss, or lip liner to complete your overall look.
  9. Setting Spray: To set your makeup and make it last longer, spritz a setting spray evenly over your face.
Remember, makeup application techniques can vary based on personal preferences, styles, and occasions. Adjust these steps according to your desired look and enjoy the process of enhancing your natural beauty!
