Do’s for Makeup

Most women nowadays know how to put makeup and some can’t leave their house without it. But there are some mistakes we do think that it is the right way of applying makeup.

For instance, we forgot or don’t really apply the primer after cleansing our face. Maybe because we can’t find the right primer for a specific skin type due to oiliness, dullness, or dryness. And there’s those who don’t have a budget to buy some or think it’s fine without it. But applying primer as your base is very important because of its essentials that allows it to go on smoother and makes your makeup last longer.

There are several types of foundation but applied in the same way. Before you buy a foundation make sure that it has the same color as your natural skin tone. The trick is to apply a small amount at your neck and chin to know which has the same color as your skin. If you’re using a brush better to apply it in a circular motion going out to spread the foundation evenly. While for sponge or beauty blender, make sure to use it a little bit wet then dab it around your face. Always remember to put just enough foundation, same as your concealer to avoid cakiness.

Everyone knows that setting powder will help to set the foundation and remove any shine or tackiness. Too much Powder is a big NO. You wouldn’t want to be mistaken for putting a flour on your face instead of a powder, right?

Too much contouring and putting of blush-on are one of the common mistakes we seldom do. At times we thought it’s enough but the truth is we over-do it. There are also those moments they don’t look the same or balance, one side is darker or reddish, or we didn’t apply in the right place. So always be keen and careful. Contour under your cheekbones in the hollows of your cheeks, on the sides of your nose, and under your jawline. If you have a large forehead, apply some to make it look smaller. Next, put your blush with a large brush on the apples of your cheeks while smiling.

Lastly, using dirty brushes is definitely a no, no! You wouldn’t want to have pimples, clogged pores, and messy makeup in using those unwashed makeup brushes, right? So cleaning our brushes and other makeup materials we use in applying is very important to be clean at least once a week.

So make sure not to over-do it, put in the right spot, apply properly and be confident! After all, you do it for yourself and not for other people.
