Makeup Tips For Beginners

·               Start with a clean skin:

Wipe away any impurities from your face using clean wipes or a gentle toner

·               Apply A light moisturizer:

This is to keep your skin from getting too oily or dry during the day.

·               Always start with a face primer

·               Conceal Dark circle and Blemishes:

To achieve this, use a concealer with a shade or two shades lighter than your skin tone.

·               Apply foundation evenly using a brush and a sponge to blend.

·               For flawless blending, clean a brush before moving onto a new product or area on your face. This way, you won’t pack on more product than necessary.

·               Sweep a soft eye shadow colour across the lid, line your lash line using eyeliner and apply mascara.

·               Use eye premier before applying eyeliner and eye shadow to prevent them from fading or smudging.

·               For a long lasting colour, use a lip liner to create a shape and define your lips before applying lipstick.

·               Finally, to avoid cake-face makeup, use finishing spray to give your face an even natural look. Not only does this help your makeup stay on longer, but it also gives your face a nice, dewy glow.


Beautifully shaped brows immediately up your makeup game. The following are thus necessary to achieve a perfect brow.
