Ok, let’s admit it. Makeup as a skill isn’t easy and most of us can’t even spell half the products that can be applied on our face.
It is tough and as complicated as making meth. Basically, it comes with a lot of instructions. For a beginner, this might seem like a task impossible. But if people in breaking bad can make meth, then we can sure wing that eyeliner. To get you started, below are the few basics that can help you in adulting.
•You need to start from a perfect primer
It sets on your face and smoothes out the lines and texture of your skin to make it even before applying your foundation. We would recommend not to try very expensive-heavy on your pocket primer for your first batch. Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer is a must for a beginner to get that even skin tone. We swear by this as it instantly brightens primes, softens blemishes and pores giving that smooth skin surface to prep up for makeup application.
•Foundation followed by concealer
This is the trickiest segment in getting your canvas exhibition ready, as a foundation can make or break your game. So for this part, we wouldn’t recommend getting it online but actually stepping out of your house and buying it from a store like our ancestors used to do(Tough. We know but tough luck). You need a foundation which goes along with your skin tone and type, be it oily or dry. Not too dark and not too bright. FIT ME FOUNDATION by Maybelline available in 16 shades is our personal favourite. You wouldn’t regret it.
To cover dark circles or those nasty pimples and minimize fine lines around eyes, LA Girl HD Pro Conceal, works like magic, trust us, your amateur ass needs it.
•Brushes are a must
Blend it like Beckham. (Victoria not David). You might feel like not investing in them and just using what your mama gave you. FINGERS. But don’t. A rookie brush set or even one big brush for a beginner sets you apart from others. NAKED PLUS PROFESSIONAL MAKE-UP BRUSHES is what we would say advise you to “Add to cart” right away.
•Blush those cheeks
The easiest and most gratifying is the blush you apply to your cheeks. Coming in varied shades like peach, coral, baby pink or subtle orange sure peaks up your face and cheekbones. Note Luminous Silk Compact Blusher and even Blush by Sephora coming with built-in cushion applicator are two types that we swear by.
•Brows, eyeliner, and mascara on fleek
These three things when well made up are bound to turn heads. A downfall for these three is a perfect balance between them. Pandas may be cute but you don’t need to look like one. So for your first try to go easy on it and apply with steady quantities. We would suggest Wet n Wild Color Icon Brow Pencil for your perfect eyebrows and Lakme Eyeconic Lash Curling Mascara for those never-ending eyelashes. Eyeliners is one of the most discussed and most common makeup articles comes in various types of applicators. So to choose this you must experiment with it and see what suit your steady hand.
•Lip shades for those pouty selfies
No doubt you have already decided which shade you are going to rock according to your personality as lip shades are a highly subjective arena. So for deciding the shade, Miss little lady pants, we are going to leave this decision on you. But as far as quality and long lasting effect go we would definitely push you in the direction of Lakme 9 to 5 collection.
Makeup is a highly evolving field in the fashion industry. But it doesn’t mean that what suits everyone will suit you. You need to define you.
Go gaga over it and raise that beauty bar even high.
