10 Make Up Steps For Beginners

1. Freshen Up!


Choose a cleanser that works best with your skin type. Massage the cleanser into your skin with cool water, in a circular motion, for two minutes. Pat your face dry and then spray a toner lightly over your face.


2. Moisturize with SPF


Use a good spf moisturizer that complements your skin, we recommend using spf 30. A good moisturizer will provide protection and ready your skin for the makeup application process.

3. Prep with Primer


Primer is great for putting under your foundation because it helps your makeup last throughout the day. A good primer will also reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines, and oiliness, allowing you to get that perfect finish. Use a matte primer for oily skin and a hydrating primer for dry skin.

4. Master Your Foundation


If you would like full coverage when applying foundation use a beauty blender or a foundation brush. We recommend adding water to your beauty blender for an even application. For a more natural light weight finish use your fingertips. Use a translucent powder to set the foundation in place. This will ensure that your makeup lasts all day!

5. Enchanting Eyes


Apply eye primer to your eyelids before eyeshadow or eyeliner application to prevent creasing and smudging. To enhance your eyes use a highlighter right above the arch of your eyebrows. This will give you an instant eye lift. For perfect eyeshadow application use your eyeshadow brush, applying medium pressure to the lid and light pressure to the crease. Curl eyelashes with an eyelash curler before applying mascara. If you apply too much eyeshadow, or if the eyeshadow is too dark, use your beauty blender to minimize the pigment.

6. Be Cheeky


Choose a blush for fair skin or bronzer for a more tanned look. Apply blush or bronzer to your cheek bones, and for a more contoured look your hairline.

7. Highlight your Life


Apply highlighter to your upper cheek bones, chin, tip of the nose, forehead, cupids bow, brow bone, and inner eye for a glowy finish.

8. Luscious Lips


Pull it all together with some color on your lips and add some gloss on top to give it a shiny lush finish.


9. Beautiful Brows


Brush eyebrows with eyebrow comb to remove foundation. With an angled brush apply your eyebrow powder to fill sparse areas. Comb through again to blend.

10. Spray and Last All Day


Lastly lock it all in with a setting spray. Lightly mist all over your face to lock in and enhance your look.  You can use a matte spray for less shine, or a dewy spray for a hydrated glowing finish.
