For Beginners: Easy to Do Make-up Tips


Natural and beautiful make-up has a remarkable effect on one’s face just like a magic wand.

Applying simple and spectacular make-up is not as difficult as it seems. Although people who are new to make-up overestimate the difficulties, it is actually very easy to put on make-up when you know certain tactics!

Let’s start exploring the things to consider when applying make-up for beginners!

  1. Prepare for Make-up

Although many people skip this step, you need a certain preparation time before applying makeup. The preparation will make your make-up look more beautiful and long lasting. You can find the steps to be followed during preparation below:

  • Cleanse your skin with toner or other facial cleanser.
  • Moisturize gently to prevent excessive oiling of the skin during the day and to moisturize dry areas. After applying, wait for 5 minutes for your skin to absorb the moisturizer.
  • Apply a light colored or lightweight foundation to the forehead, cheeks and chin area. Make sure that this foundation is suitable for your skin tone and type.
  • Apply concealer under the eyes with a small and pointed brush. You can choose the concealer close to your skin tone, or even one tone lighter than your skin.
  • Set your concealer and foundation with a translucent powder. These will make your make-up last longer.
  1. Continue with Eye Make-up

You can continue with eye make-up after preparing your face. You can find details of easy eye make-up application below:

  • First, start applying the eyeshadow you have chosen to your eyelid. Meanwhile, if you apply with a brush, remove any excess eyeshadow by tapping the brush on the eyeshadow container.
  • Use natural tones for the first application. The eyeshadow should start from the lash line and lengthen beyond the eyelid crease and even up to the bone above becoming lighter.
  • Set your eyeshadow with a translucent powder.
  • Apply eyeliner. Lift the upper eyelid up with one hand. Meanwhile, apply eyeliner towards the inner corner of the eye with your other hand. You can also apply the same method to your lower eyelid.
  • Lastly, apply mascara. Brush the eyelashes on the outer side of your eye.
  1. Apply Make-up to the Cheeks and Lips

You can start applying make-up to the different parts of the face such as the cheeks and lips after eye make-up. You can find out more details below:

  • First, apply blush from the cheekbones to the temples. You can use either cream or powder blush. Be careful to apply powder blushes with the help of a thick and dense brush, though.
  • Pucker your lips so that you can apply lipstick more easily. Apply the lipstick in the middle of the lower and upper lips. Then, dab it lightly on the remaining sides of the lips with your fingers. The application will be easier and the lipstick does not smudge thanks to this method.
  • Finally, look at your face in daylight to see the effect of your make-up. You will notice the smudges, excess or missing spots better.

Make-up Advice for Beginners

  • To be able to find the right shade of foundation, try it on a small part of your chin, not on your arm. Because your arm is usually one or two shades darker than your face.
  • Make sure to use powder for long lasting make-up otherwise, the makeup will only last a few hours.
  • Before applying lipstick, you can exfoliate your lips to avoid a cracked look.

Anyone who is new to make-up can achieve a simple, natural and glamorous look by applying the basic points stated above!
