Makeup Tutorial For Beginners

Step 1: Analyze your face

Before investing in expensive products, you must analyze what kind of face you have and decide what you want to highlight and what you need to hide. Look at your face to determine if it is oily or dry, if you have problems in the T-zone, and what is your eye shape. Analyze each of your features and decide what you want to do with them. Based on that information, purchase the most appropriate products to help your skin feel and look good.

Step 2: Find out your skin tone

Depending on your skin tone and hair color, there are certain shades that look better than others. The first thing you should choose is the foundation; make sure it matches your skin tone correctly. For more tips on how to find your skin tone, click here.


Step 3: Concealer

If you have dark circles, it is indispensable that you purchase the right concealer. You can find it in different designs: bar, pen with brush, cream ... but since you are a beginner, the most appropriate for you, in my opinion, is the pencil with a small brush. Apply it in the dark areas under your eyes and blend it well with your finger. (Click here to learn more about the best concealer for your skin.

Step 4: Powder & Blush

There are two types of powder: loose or compact. Compact powder is an extraordinary makeup for beginners. Loose powders are more volatile and therefore harder to apply. A common mistake when applying the powder is forgetting we have a neck! Don't let people notice the line in your neck and put some makeup on it!

Some recommendations are:

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Teint Mineral Compact powder, Sisley Phyto-Poudre Compacte & Sensai Total Finish

When it comes to your blush, choose the powder formula. You'll find excellent cream blushes but let's forget about them for now. The blush powder is applied with a more or less wide brush. You can find more tips on How to pick the right blush here.

Step 5: Eyeliners

I would recommend buying affordable eyeliners at first to see which one will work better with your eyes. While some brands seem to work perfectly on some girls, others can irritate sensible eyes.
