Here are a few basic makeup tips so you can glam-up your everyday look: -

Pre Makeup
Use a cream-based cleanser for dry skin or a gel-based cleanser for oily skin. Cleansing helps to clean your face of dirt and sediments from everyday pollution.

Use a cotton ball and dab some toner over your face and neck, it is very important for oily and acne-prone skin types.

It is essential to hydrate your skin, keeping it soft and supple to achieve a smooth finish look. Choose an oil-based moisturiser for dry skin or water-based for oily skin.

Step 1: Primer
A primer sets the base for your makeup and also makes it last longer. A BB, CC cream or tinted moisturiser also work as primers. Choose whatever is suitable for your skin. Some of these creams have the added benefit of sunscreen protection.

Step 2: Concealer
Dark circles and blemishes need to be evened out, or concealed. Choose a concealer two shades lighter than your skin tone to match.

Step 3: Foundation
The purpose of applying foundation is to even out skin tone without making it look unnatural and bright. Choose the correct shade based on your skin. Apply the foundation with your finger or use a brush and blend well with a sponge.

Step 4: Eye makeup
Use an eyeshadow palette and sweep a single colour over your lids. You could go with nude,  dull pink or experiment with bold and loud colours. If you’re not confident with that, apply a thick line of a coloured liner.

Step 5: Eyeliner and Blush
Add kajal to the lower water-line of your eye. A variety of colours are available but it’s best to start with black. It isn’t very difficult to use a sketch liner and follow along the line of your lashes. With practice, you will be able to ace the eye look. 

Tint your cheeks with a pink or a reddish tint. Use a blush brush with a light hand and apply from the inside and brush outward. Make sure it’s not too prominent.

Step 6: Lipstick
Before application, use an old brush or a towel over your lips to scrape off dead skin and moisturise your lips. Use a lip liner to define the shape of your lips; do it before you apply lipstick. The colour of your lip liner and lipstick should match. Choose a colour that will compliment your look.
