Fall is now here, which means it’s time for cozy sweaters, warm scarves, and cute boots. More importantly, it’s time to do away with your summer makeup routine! You can play with your deep eyeshadows and bright lip colors without any fear but if you are a simple makeup lover like me, you will still stick to your everyday makeup routine. If you need a beauty routine to make your own, you can create a gorgeous everyday look in a few minutes with these 10 simple makeup steps that work for every face. Here’s exactly how to do makeup at home.
Step 1: Moisturize Your Skin
Hydrating your skin is important to get flawless makeup. At first prime, it with a moisturizer according to your skin. I have used Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizer. You get two formulas, one for dry skin and one for oily skin. It’s lightweight and it makes makeup look flawless and natural.
Step 2: Conceal Dark Circles
To conceal some dark brown spots and dark circles, use a medium coverage concealer to conceal those imperfections. Try a creamy formula, like M.A.C Studio Fix Perfecting Stick, Rouge Bunny Rouge Naked Disguise Liquid Glide Concealer in a shade that matches your skin tone. Apply directly from the pencil or with a pointed brush and blend with your ring finger lightly.
Step 3: Perfect Your Base
Apply a light foundation stick or tinted Moisturizer which will give you a light-medium coverage and a dewy finish. Blend it with fingers, the heat from your hands will warm up the foundation and help it glide. You can use SUGAR Cosmetics Foundation Stick, Makeup Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation, Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick or Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick.
Step 4: Groom Your Brows
Use a good eyebrow pencil or liner like The Body Shop Brow Sport Brow Liner and lightly fill in any gaps and use a disposable mascara wand to brush the hairs up.
Step 5: Give A Light Touch Of Color to Your cheeks
No need to shade and sculpt cheekbones with a brush and powder, just try a cream blush Kiko Milano Velvet Touch Creamy Stick Blush, Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge For Lips & Cheeks, M.A.C Cream Colour Base or Sleek Makeup Blush By 3 Palette instead for that glow-from-within effect. Apply to the apples of your cheeks. Then blend the color up toward your temples with your fingers.
Step 6: Apply Eyeliner
I don’t advise applying eyeshadow on your lids when you have to do your makeup in no time. It takes a little time but if you want to do so apply a wash of sheer, shimmery cream shadow from lash lines to brow bones using your pointer finger.
Use a black eyeliner like Colorbar All-Matte Eyeliner, NYX Professional Makeup Epic Ink Liner or L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza to define your eyes. You can use different color eyeliners for a refreshing effect.
Step 7: Apply mascara to Define Your Lashes
Apply your favorite mascara on both lashes to give them nice volume and length. I have used M.A.C False Lashes Black Mascara.
Step 8: Get Luscious Lips
Before applying your lip color, soften chapped lips by gently buffing them with a damp washcloth and hydrate it with a lip balm. Let it sink in well, and blot with a tissue if it feels slippery. Then apply the lipstick of your choice. Try M.A.C Matte Lipstick – Please Me.
And you are done. It’s so easy and simple. I love such simple makeup for the entire year. No matter what season is going on.
