How to Make Your Makeup Look Flawless

Most makeup tips focus on products and their application. However, a crucial aspect in learning how to make your makeup look flawless is taking good care of your skin. You can mask a tired look or blotchy face, but if you want the best results, you need to ensure that your skin is healthy and glowing. The combination of good skin, the right products, and good makeup techniques will help your makeup look flawless. Begin creating magic with your face starting with the first tip below.

  1. Get a good night's sleep. This simple beauty tip does wonders for your skin. It improves tone and texture. If you're unable get at least 7 hours of sleep the night before, try to work in 15 or 30-minute power naps during the day or about an hour before you do your makeup.

  2. Cleanse your face with a mild product compatible with your skin type. If you have an oily face, use a toner. Then, spray on a hydrating mist or apply your favorite non-comedogenic moisturizer.

  3. Apply a primer that has silica or illuminating properties, taking care not to slather it on too thickly.



    Just put enough so you avoid the caking effect, which only makes wrinkles more obvious. Doing this helps set your foundation and makes putting on makeup easier. The shimmery quality also reduces the appearance of fine lines. You can get a product infused with moisturizers to make the job quicker.

  4. Dab or brush on concealer in stripes around your eyes, mouth, and nose to even out your complexion. Lightly brush some on bumps and pimples as well. Yellow-based concealers are good for camouflaging red spots. To avoid getting “white eyes,” the concealer's shade should match the color of your cheeks so it blends in easily. Blend with the lightest touch in the area under your eyes, as the skin there is very delicate. Do not tug!

  5. Next, put on foundation, which should be lightweight and appropriate for your skin color. If you have really oily skin, go for powders. However, you can try liquid ones that have a matte or powder effect upon drying. Those with dry skin should use liquid foundations.

  6. Apply with a brush, sponge, or your hands and use light, downward or sideward strokes. The advantage of using your hands is that the liquid spreads more smoothly and blends better due to the warmth of your fingers. Don't forget to apply foundation on your neck, hairline, and the area near your jawline and ear as well.

  7. Set the foundation with translucent loose powder. Dip a large brush in the powder, tap off the excess, and dust it on your face, especially those areas that get shiny.

  8. Define your brows and eyes using makeup brushes. Put a bit of shimmery eye shadow on top of your lids and apply a darker shade on the creases to add depth. Line your upper lids and curl your lashes.

  9. Apply two coats of mascara. Move the brush diagonally from the roots to tips.

  10. To add dimension to your face, apply matte bronzer or blush two shades darker than your skin on the sides of your forehead near the hairline and under your cheekbones, brushing outward up to your ears.

  11. Brush blush on just above the part of your cheek where you applied the bronzer. Apply highlighter on your cheekbones, chin, and forehead.

  12. Blend everything using a big brush and a lightweight, fine finishing powder until the “stripes” made by the bronzer and blush blend into each other and look more natural. Use downward or sideward strokes.

  13. Buff your lips with a damp washcloth if they're dry or chapped. Apply a little lip balm to moisturize. Then, apply lipstick to the center of your lips and pat the color outward with a finger to get a more natural look for the day. If you want intense lips that last long, line your lips first before putting on lipstick. Put a bit of gloss in the middle of your lips and blend this in so you get a nice, glossy look without overdoing it. You can put a bit of shimmer on the top edge of your lips (right at the center) to give you that dewy look.

Using a finishing makeup spray is also a helpful tip on how to make your makeup look flawless. To preserve your look during the day (or night), use blotting paper to get rid of the shiny spots on your face instead of powder, as this may add more layers to your makeup and cause caking or diminish the color of your bronzer or blush.
