How to do a full makeup?
After a few minutes when everything's absorbed, put on a makeup base
if you like it (I don't do that myself as moisturizer is good enough
and doesn't burden your skin too much!), then foundation. You should
choose a color which is similar to your skin tone. Don't try and get
something too white as it would look scary! For Asian skin tone it's
always good to use foundation and powder with a yellow undertone. Don't
ever try something with a rosy tone! You can use a sponge, or just your
fingers to spread your foundation, from top to bottom, outward strokes.
Don't put on too much. Then apply concealer to flaws that you want
to hide. Choose a color that is a bit darker than your foundation,
except when you need to hide under eye circle use a slightly lighter or
the same color as the foundation.Then use a brush (or a sponge if you
like) to put on powder on your face. For foundation and powder don't
forget the eye area. Then brush away excess powder.
Use a light eyeshadow to spread all over your upper eye lid.
Then a darker one on the crease and a shimmer one just below your
brows, where it archs down. To enhance the effect you can even put on a
darker color about one-third to the end of your crease. Then apply eye
liner if you wish. Usually only to the one-third end just above your
lashes is enough. Or you can draw a full line just above your upper
lashes. Use black or brown. Then curl your lashes and apply mascara, in
a zig-zag motion. Then use a brow pencil or brush with brow color to
fill in your brows and define them.
For your lips: Apply lip balm first. Then use a lip pencil
matching your lipstick color to define your lip line. You can always
correct the shape of your lips with the help of foundation and lip
pencil but don't over-do it. Then fill the entire lips using the lip
pencil if you need a long lasting effect. Then apply lipstick. You can
put on lipgloss afterwards if you like.
The last thing is to put on blush. Use a brush to sweep the
blush from your cheek bone diagonally upwards to the side of your
cheek. Blush should start inline with the iris of your eye and out and
So there you are, it's done!
If you do feel it's not right, it's probably because you haven't
blended well, or you have unmatched colors. Remember not to emphazise
more than one place. When you have bright lips don't put on too much
eye color. Also you should look at what you will be wearing before you
decide to use which color on your face.
