Order for perfect makeup
Apply moisturizer first
It is one of the most essential steps of the perfect makeup. Please do not avoid this first step, no matter your skin is oily, dry or normal. Most of the times makeup absorbs the natural moisture of the skin and leave it dry. You should always apply your moisturizer first but be sure it has to be of good quality. You can use Face Mist, Serum, Lotion, Oils, Creams.
Face Mist: They help to maintain a dewy look for all day.
Serum: Some kinds of serum are used to maintain moisture on skin. You can also use them
Lotion: You can go with lotion as they balance moisture and do not clog the pores as well.
Oils: We recommend Oil to a person having dry skin. Others can also use it but it can be a better option for persons having dry skin.
Creams: If you have more dry skin, you can go with this option. But be sure before using it, it is a heavier solution. You can also use it as your base while doing makeup. We suggest you to use night cream if you have more dry skin because it is a sign that your skin needs something extra or extra care. Use night cream before going to sleep and don’t remove it until the morning.
You know that you have to apply makeup but how to apply it?, is also very crucial. So, take some amount (only 4-5 drops ) of moisturizer in your palm. Make sure it is not too much. So, it will not clog the pores of your skin. Firstly, spread the moisturizer across your forehead then apply it gently over your cheeks, nose and chin in upward direction. After applying the moisturizer, do massage over your face with your fingers and leave it for being dry. So, that you can move on to next step.
Your skin is now well moisturized. It is a turn of primer. Primer is required before doing any makeup or applying foundation. What exactly primer does? It covers fine lines or pores on your skin. With its usage, makeup stays for longer and don’t let your skin dry.
Squeez a small amount of primer onto your palm and start light massage over your cheeks first then on forehead and chin. While using the primer be cautious, there are many types of primer available in the market. Before using any one of it, identify your skin type and then go with the best type which suits you. Also use good quality product, so it can’t do any harm to your skin.
After applying primer, be ready with foundation. We suggest you to choose any liquid foundation because these foundations are easy to apply and do not looks like you have imposed any powder over your face. Apply the foundation which matches with your skin tone.
Mostly women try to do makeup as pros do and they go with brushes or sponges, which is good. But we suggest you to use your magical fingers for applying the foundation. Firstly, take some dots of foundation and place them below your eyes in form of small dots and spread them .Then, put small dots same as earlier over your whole face then do patting on overall face until you feel whole foundation is absorbed.
Now, it is time for concealer. It helps you to cover your wrinkles or spots and to give you a finish. The concealer should be lighter than your skin tone so that it can highlight the certain area you want. A little advice to you all whenever, you use powder foundation alone, apply concealer first then apply foundation.
Now, there are tons of questions, how to apply it? Where to apply it? What it would do? So be chill and read. For dark circles, apply light concealer with the help of brush not with your fingers. For highlighting certain areas over your face use liquid concealer by putting small dots on the area and later brush it up. Now, apply it on whole face with the help of brush or sponge.
Apply foundation powder
It is totally up to your choice. If you wish to do it then do otherwise you can skip it too as you have already applied foundation earlier. If you are applying it then don’t apply too much of it. It may also make your skin again dry. Yes, may be these steps are hard to follow but you have to do in order to gain flawless skin.
Use big and thick powder brush and dust a light coat of powder over your face. But make sure you are arching long strokes. Don’t impose it. You can also use it for covering blemishes on your skin or if there is any part on your face which is more oily.

Start from your forehead then apply it over your cheeks then swipe it across the jawline and then sweep down to your chin.

Put your brush into eyeshadow then after bringing it out and tap it for 2 times. Now, apply it at the outer corner of your eyes just above your lash line.
