Makeup! A girl’s childhood best friend who has seen her grow from a lip balm to a lipstick, seen her cry out her mascara and kept all the concealer splurges a secret! Makeup, it is that one word that is enough to change a girl’s mood and elevate her energy to another level when it comes to makeup shopping.
Some girls do make up just for fun, some do it to feel confident, while some do it to hide their scars, and some do it to look their perfect best on their big day. No matter what the maker is for, knowing the right technique and what suits your face best is very important. The right professional makeup technique will elevate your entire look. So let us check out a few makeup techniques for beginners.
- Eye makeup instructions
The right makeup for your eyes makes all the difference to your entire look. So, knowing the right eye makeup technique is very important. Make sure you do your base properly. Start by prepping your eyelids with a color corrector if you have pigmented or dark eye lids. Next, use a concealer lighter than your skin tone. This makes sure your color corrector is in place, but it will also help enhance the color of the eyeshadow applied over it. After your concealer is set, take a flat brush and start tapping in the color of your choice. Next you can take a fluffy brush and start blending your colors as you desire. Finish off with an eyeliner liner if you wish and apply kajal on your water line. Complete it with neatly applied mascara and your eye makeup is done!
- Makeup technique for hooded eyes
Hooded eyes are more common than you think. Hooded eyes require a different kind of makeup technique for the difference in shape and appearance. For hooded eyes, if you are going in for winged liners then it is advisable for you to do it with open eyes. Start by making and upward arch aiming towards your brow and then pull it back to the center of your eye lid making a small triangle. Now, you need to fill up this triangle with your liner and your perfect wings are done. Similarly, for any kind of eye makeup application or eyeshadow, make sure you do it with open eyes to get the right precision.
- Makeup techniques for over 50
No matter how many anti-ageing products you use, your skin will age. Hence, make up application for a young skin is absolutely different from a casual make up for someone over the age of 50. For older skin, you need to take more time for prepping which needs to include a lot of hydrating products. Starting of with a water-based serum is a great choice and then moving on to a primer that would not only blur out pores but also wrinkles. For someone above the age of 50, a makeup look that is subtle and yet looks elegant is a perfect choice. This also means that there will be less of makeup application and more of elegance. Nude lips with kohl eyes work well for a western look and subtle nude eyes with warm lips come together well for an Indian look.
- Advanced makeup techniques
In this segment we will be talking about make up techniques that are rather professional and need to be learned under professional guidance. Advanced make up techniques include understanding of the color palette, skin tone differences, skin texture differences, facial shapes and product knowledge. These subjects cannot be completed under a single segment because these topics are included in a professional make up course that can last up to a month or at least 3 months. Advanced make up techniques also include HD makeup, airbrush makeup as well as make up using luxury brands.
- Makeup techniques for brushes
Did you know that there are more than 30 types of makeup brushes available in the market? But, if we narrow it down for you then you need to know about 16 specific make up brushes. To master the technique of using make up brushes flawlessly needs a lot of practice. If you are a beginner then we suggest that you get a flat eye make up brush, a fluffy eye makeup brush, a brush for your blush and a brush for your foundation. These four brushes are good enough for you to start practicing. Once you feel confident you can go in for contour brushes, blending brushes, eyeliner brush, powder brush, spoolie or a brush, and a highlighter brush. The best way to learn is to take guidance from a professional at least for once or twice as you begin, or rather practice daily if possible, to get your hands smoother each day.
