Makeup Tips for Beginners
After a few basic instructions, follow the steps below to play with your minimal makeup tools and tun out a diva!

3 | Prime your skin
Investing in the right primer can be very crucial for an even makeup look. It helps makeup to stay longer and gives a hydrated supple touch to the skin. This could be a life-saver, especially for the starters.

4 | Conceal dark spots
It’s better to apply concealer under your eyes to hide eye circles and dark spots, where necessary. Put in some concealer in the corner of your eyes and on blemishes and don’t forget to blend it with an appropriate brush or a beauty blender.

5 | Foundation
After all the base that you have prepared for your makeup, now comes the prime part. Finding the perfect foundation color is one tedious task. Not too light, not too dark, just the right foundation shade will do wonders. Before you invest in any foundation, do a complete skin tone and undertone self-check or seek expert advice on that. The unmatched foundation shade will make you look horrible.

6 | Eye-makeup
It’s a make or break point to your make-up look. Begin with lighter shades towards the inner of your eyelids and blend with darker nude shades on the outer eye edges. Do not mix darker shades entirely, rather give it a soft look blended with sharp hues. If you love cat eyeliner, practice crazy for it! It’s tricky and is not the last-minute choice. Apply a medium volume mascara to give your eyes a lenient look.
7 | Lip and cheek color
Choose the right lipstick shade according to your makeup and skin tone. It must complement your eye makeup and blush-on. Don’t go with too dark blush shades if you have a dark eye-makeup, nudes are in fashion, though.
Finally, use a makeup fixer and spray it all over your face gently to finally fix everything in place to last longer.
