Applying primer is the foundation of makeup process. It helps makeup to stay on for a longer time and gives it a glowing finishing at the end.
Step 2: Color Effect
If you have dark under-eye circles or colors in your eye that you want to cover, color correcting concealer will neutralize the color and transform it to your complexion.
Apply a small amount of correcting concealer on the affected areas using your ring finger.
Step 3: Apply Foundation.
Foundation is one of the important elements needed when applying makeup, it helps the face and neck region with a natural appearance.
When applying foundation, it shouldn’t be too obvious. Also, ensure you pick a foundation that matches your face color and will make your skin look better. Foundation is best applied with a brush
How to Apply Foundation With A Brush
Make use of the higher point of the brush for the larger areas of your face, such as the hollows of your cheeks, your hairline, and jawline. After covering the larger area, use the lower point of the brush to blend in smaller areas such as the sides of your nose, around your nostrils, and around your eyes.
Then use the larger part again to blend the foundation to your neck region. Continue the practice until your face and neck color are the same. Use a primer to make the foundation clearer.
Step 4: Conceal under your eyes
Concealer is best used to cover blemishes and imperfections like dark circles. Apply the concealer to the affected area in a triangular form below your eyes.
This will help to conceal dark circles and give your face the perfect natural tone you desire.
Step 5: Blush, Contour, and Highlight
Trust me, this combination will take your makeup to a professional level.
Apply highlighters to your cheekbones, brow bones, chin, and cupid bow before using contour on your cheeks, forehead, and the side of your nose.
Use an angled brush to blend well so that the contour doesn’t get too muddy in one area.
Apply the brush towards the cheekbones and extend towards the upward temple region.
If you are using a powder blush, do not apply it over a liquid foundation, It will make it difficult to blend well.

Use a waterproof eyeliner for easy and convenient application.
Use a tipped pencil for the waterline and a stiff, using an angled brush for the lids.
