Everyone starts their makeup journey at some point of time. Whether you are in college or starting to work soon or have a function coming up, makeup will enhance your look and in turn, give you more confidence and will make you feel pretty. Makeup can be an experimental, basic, or everyday look, but you have to start somewhere to learn it. You may have seen some pictures or makeup products and you must have been encouraged to apply makeup or you just wish to try it.

Before you can start your journey, there is a routine for makeup that every beginner can benefit from. Once you can master the basic makeup look for every day , you can move onto experimenting and create fresh looks for yourself. Here I have mentioned the routine and tips to apply the basic everyday makeup look that will get you started. Remember, only with practice can you perfect it.

Makeup routine and tips for beginners:


Before you apply your makeup, wash your face to clear it off all the dust and pollution. After cleansing your face, you have to apply a moisturizer. You can apply a face cream or face oil. This will create a layer between your skin and the makeup. Then, apply the primer to the areas of your face where you feel you have large pores.

Foundation and concealer- 

The first step is to prepare the skin of your face. As you are a beginner, take a little foundation first and apply it with a brush, sponge, or your fingers. If you want more coverage, then build it up gradually. Then, take the concealer and apply it below your eyes, the T-zone, nose, and chin. Blend it like you did the foundation.

The next step is to apply eye shadow. If you think you may experience fall out because of your eye shadow, then you can apply a masking tape below your eyelid. Then take a brown eye-shadow and apply it to your crease and the outside of your lid. Then, take a lighter shade and cover your lid with it. You can continue with liner, eyebrow, and lashes.

For finishing your look, apply some blush to the apples of your cheeks. The area from your nose to your ear is where you should apply the bronzer or contour. You can apply it to your forehead as well. Finish your look with a highlighter. Apply the highlighter above your blush. Apply it gradually, and then build up the pigment of the same.
