Makeup can be a double-edged sword; if we use it correctly we can strengthen our strengths, but if we do it badly we can mask our beauty and turn it into something artificial.
How to put on subtle makeup, step by step
Facial care is a basic aspect when making a good makeup. Our skin must be perfectly clean to avoid the appearance of imperfections created by the lack of hygiene in our skin.
+ The first step should be to wash our face well with a neutral soap every day twice a day. Apply a layer of specific moisturizer for each type of skin depending on our needs. The cream should be left to dry so that it absorbs well to the skin.
+ Then apply with small touches the corrector in areas where we need to “correct”, disguise or camouflage something. Depending on the type and colour of the skin of the area that we must hide we will opt for a concealer with yellow, green, blue, orange, purple, pink, white or the same colour of our skin pigmentation.
+ A good base of makeup and, by this, I mean that it is very important to get a good quality and spare no expense. A base must be oil-free and have a sun protection factor. The bases of makeup must adapt to the demands of each: there are very covering, light, matt, satin, long-lasting, etc. The idea is to get a light to medium, fluid and long-lasting coverage.
The base should always be applied with a brush since it spreads better and the amount of product used is always less than using the hands or sponges. We should never finish applying our base on the edge of the jaw; the base ends at the neck and never with a sharp cut.
+ Apply mattifying correcting powders to cover glitter and highlight and hide each area of our face; Depending on each one, they will be applied on one side or on the other.
+ Apply a blush; it can be cream or powder to enhance our cheekbones. As with mattifying powders, the blush will be applied depending on the shape of each one’s face.
+ Wake your eyes slightly curling the eyelashes with a curler, without abuse and without too much pressure because the hair of the eyelashes if damaged does not regenerate. Apply a layer of mascara, avoiding creating lumps and once dry give the second layer only at the tips.
+ Comb the eyebrows with a specific comb and fill small holes with a pencil or shadow designed for them; fix them to avoid that they disperse with formulas similar to mascara but transparent and let dry.
+ Exfoliates and moisturizes the lips. In the case that we want to give them colour always apply with a brush. The trick of biting a paper is not necessary.
+ To finish, apply a spray of water about 30 cm from the face to fix the makeup. Voila!
