How to Apply Your Makeup by Julia Anderson


Basic makeup steps are no longer a new thing to most females. However, there are still girls who are strungling to get the right steps to basic makeup.

For instance, just weeks before, we were wondering what are the steps to basic makeup as all we do before heading out of the house is lining the eyebrows, smooch some lipstick and thats it! (we know, damn jakun right!)

In order to find out the right way and the simplest steps to basic makeup, we thought MAC could enlighten us with this but to our dismay, the girl who attended us gave us a look of disgust. Why? Because we dont know the simple steps to basic makeup and she didnt even bother telling us which caused us not to walk into MAC ever again.

Upon remembering this just a while ago, we decided to check via the Internet and boy, we should have gone to Women's Web instead because there, we found 5 simple steps to basic makeup!

Step 1: foundation
After cleansing, toning and moisturizing your face, apply a small amount of foundation to the tip of your index finger, dot on forehead, nose, cheeks and chin then blend in an upward and outward motion without leaving a line. Be sure to apply foundation over your eyelids and blend without leaving a line. Glance in the mirror to ensure there's no line. You can use a concealer to cover imperfections such as blemishes and dark spots. You can use our NATU-CLEAR to remove dark spots, even skin tone and skin discoloration.

Step 2: translucent powder
Using a powder brush, apply translucent powder in a downward motion for a smooth finish. Translucent powder helps eye makeup and blush to go on smoother and blend better. It also keeps your face looking fresh and your makeup will last longer.

Step 3: eye makeup
Starting at your lash line, apply your base color first, then apply your crease color in the crease area. Apply your highlight color in the highlight color area, below the brow bone. Finally, blend the colors with a cotton ball or your fingertip to remove any obvious line. If the colors are too bright, tone them down with a little translucent powder then apply your mascara, and using downward strokes, dust your entire face with translucent powder.

Step 4: blush
Your blush should go on the apples of your cheeks to radiate when you smile. It should go no closer to your nose, but directly beneath the iris of your eye—below nostril-level and into your temple hairline. A good blush brush that's tapered for precise placement, is a must.

Step 5: lipstick
Define the outline of your lips with a professional lip brush or lip liner pencil that closely matches the color of your lipstick. Then apply your lipstick and blend the liner with a lip brush. Start from the center working outwards.
