Laying the Groundwork
1 Start with clean skin:-
Wipe your skin with a gentle cleanser or simply use a toner to wipe away any impurities from your skin.
2 Apply a light moisturizer:-
This will help you keep your skin from getting too oily during the day, and will help moisturizing any dry patches on your skin.
If you know that you have oily skin don’t skip moisturizer entirely instead of that try a gel based formula that your skin will absorb quickly.
Wait for five minutes before putting on foundation, so that the moisturizer can sink into skin.
3 Dab on a tinted moisturizer or a light foundation to your skin:-
Apply light foundation just a few spots with your fingertips to your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin, then blend with fingers, or a foundation brush, working the spots outwards from the centre in all directions.
Be sure to choose a foundation shade that matches your skin tone. This will help you look more natural.
If you want more coverage, you can use a makeup sponge to apply, using the same method of blending.
4 Put a little concealer under the eyes:-
Better to use a small pointed brush to dot a bit where under eye circles are darkest, usually at the inner and outer corners of the eye are darkest.
Add a speck (tiny spot) to other blemishes that aren’t covered by the foundation and mixed into the skin.
There’s a little controversy about whether a concealer should be the same shade as your skin tone or slightly lighter than skin tone; however, it should never be lighter than one shade away from your natural tone.
Look for something as close as you can find to your skin tone.
5 Set the concealer and moisturizer with a translucent powder:-
Apply it to your face, ideally using a velvet powder puff in a pressing motion (as I don’t recommend to a powder brush because as that leaves a lot of loose powder).
Use a powder brush to flick off any excess powder. If you are using a powder brush to apply powder, tap off the excess powder before applying to your face in circular motions.

Putting on Your Eyes
1 Apply an eyeshadow of your choice to your eyelid:-
For beginners, try a single neutral shade like taupe or aubergine.
Use a rounded shadow brush or your finger and be sure to make quick, short swipes across the lid, working your way up to the brow bone.
- The shadow should go from your lash line to just beyond the inner fold, From there it fades upward toward the bone.
- Set it with a thin dusting of translucent powder.
- If you’re using a brush, tap it lightly on the side of the eyeshadow to remove any excess.
2 Apply eyeliner:-
Use a black or brown pencil and apply along the rim of your upper eyelash line in short strokes.
- Lift your upper eye lid with one hand and look down into a mirror as you apply with your other hand.
- Eyeliner is one of the areas that you can really experiment with as you become more confident while applying makeup.
- Factors like colour, texture, and line application can make a big impact on the appearance of your peepers. Play around!
3 Curl your lashes:- Place a lash curler at the base of your upper eyelashes along with eye lid and press for five seconds.
4 After this, apply mascara:-
Apply to the upper and lower lashes with the tip of the wand oriented towards the outer corner from inner corner of your eye.
One coat should be enough for this look.
Adding Cheek and Lip Color
1 Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks:-
Smile while you do this so you can clearly see where the apples are. Dab on the blush and blend upwards.
- Try a creamy blush for a natural glow that’s easy to blend in.
- If you opt for powder blush, use a brush that is fluffy yet dense, Dust translucent powder over it to blend the edges.
2 Apply lipstick or lip gloss:-
Make your lips like you’re about to plant a kiss and dab the lip colour to the centre of your upper and lower lip.
This first application can be straight from the lipstick or lip gloss and then, use your fingers to blend outwards, adding colour with your fingertips as needed.
- If your lips are chapped and damaged, prep them before putting on lip colour, gently buff them with a warm, damp wash cloth and put on a light layer of lip balm and Let the balm absorb before moving on to lipstick or lip gloss.
- For beginners, the lips are a great opportunity to add colour and vary your makeup regime without having to fuss over application technique and you can work with anything from neutral barely there gloss to creamy fire engine red.
3 Check yourself in bright light daylight if possible to make sure everything is blended and beautiful:-
If it’s okay, you’re done!
