How to make your makeup look flawless? 10 tips
Even the hottest, A-list celebrities have not so perfect skin, so how do they always seem to look flawless? If you ever wondered what steps are needed for flawless looking makeup, read these ten simple tips.
1. Cleanse your skin thoroughly
Step one toward flawless looking makeup, is to look after your natural complexion. Cleanse your face, every morning and every night, with a gentle cleanser that is suited to your skin.
2. Exfoliate regularly
Another tip on how to make your makeup look flawless is to exfoliate your skin regularly. Simple day to day, wear and tear, damages the upper layer of your skin; skin cells die off and new ones are generated. Exfoliating regularly will clean away the dead, flaky skin and expose the radiant, new skin underneath.
3. Moisturise and massage well into the skin
Moisturise daily and always massage the moisturiser well into your skin. If you don’t rub it in (gently, of course), it will leave a greasy film on top of your skin and your makeup won’t adhere properly.
4. Use a primer
Another tip on how to make your makeup look flawless is to apply a silica based primer and this will help to conceal any fine lines. Use primer sparingly though, because if you use too much, it can actually accentuate fine lines in your skin.
5. Choose the right foundation
If you are lucky enough to have flawless skin, without any blemishes, then you could use a tinted moisturiser, but otherwise, use a liquid foundation that contains silicone and avoid using the heavy, matte foundations, which can look too unnatural.
6. Conceal blemishes and dark circles
It’s worth spending some money on some quality concealer and look for one that is closest to your own, natural skin tone. Apply concealer to hide any blemishes or dark circles under the eyes and, always blend in well.
7. Apply bronzer and blush
To add a bit more colour to your face, apply a bronzer across your forehead, cheeks and nose, and some blush to the apples of your cheeks. Another useful tip on how to make your makeup look flawless is to make sure that the bronzer is not too dark for your complexion and the blush is not too bright.
8. Apply your eye makeup
Apply your eyeshadows and don’t forget to blend well, then curl your lashes and apply mascara and eyeliner; use an eyebrow pencil to shade your brows, if needed. Always choose colours that compliment your natural complexion and blend well in.
9. Use a lip primer
For flawless lips, they too will need regular exfoliation and moisturising. Using a lip primer, will help to fill up any creases, and then apply lip liners and lipstick; finish with a gloss if required.
10. Blend to look natural
Good blending is another important tip on how to make your makeup look flawless. For beautiful and natural looking makeup, always be sure to blend all products up very well and choose shades that compliment your skin tone. The last thing you want is stark lines that show where makeup starts and finishes.
