Applying makeup correctly and flawlessly is nothing more than an art. You cannot
be a pro on the first try. However, if you have suggestions, tips, and techniques
from experts, your first attempt will be better than a lot. To help you on your
makeup-learning journey, we have listed some best advice to keep in mind.
1. Proper Skin Prep
Proper skin preparation is key to achieving a flawless makeup look. Start by
cleansing your face to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. Follow up with a toner to
restore your skin's natural pH balance. Moisturize your skin to hydrate it and
create a smooth base for makeup application.
2. Use a Primer
Primer creates a smooth and even base for your makeup. It helps fill fine lines and pores, making your skin appear smoother. Primer also helps your makeup last
longer by creating a barrier between your skin and makeup.
3. Invest in Quality Brushes
Good quality brushes are a must-have for professional makeup artists. They help
achieve a flawless makeup application and can make a big difference in the final
result. Look for brushes made with synthetic fibers, as they are easier to clean and don’t absorb as much product.
4. Do Layering
Professional makeup artists often layer products to create a more polished look.
For example, they may use a tinted moisturizer, followed by a concealer, followed
by a foundation. This technique allows you to build coverage gradually, resulting
in a more natural look.
5. Set your Makeup
Setting your makeup is important to help it last longer and prevent it from
creasing or smudging throughout the day. A setting spray or powder will help lock in your makeup, keeping it in place all day. Try to use a setting spray with a matte
finish if you have oily skin and a luminous finish if you have dry skin.
Everyone can do makeup, but only professionals can do it correctly to have a
natural and beautiful look. You can also be one of them by keeping the focus on
the above-mentioned beautifying secrets from professional artists.
