Summertime Basic Makeup Tips

After your morning cleansing, toning and moisturizing regiment, I would recommend 4 basic daily makeup steps, bearing in mind summertime and humidity.

 1. Apply a light layer of compact or loose powder closest to your skin tone.

 2. Apply eyeliner with a steady hand, kajal or mascara being optional.

 3. Smooth on a hint of powder blusher on the apples of your cheek.

 4. Apply a nude lip liner and fill in with a similar shade of lipstick.

Summer Makeup Dos and Don’ts

 1. Always apply makeup on clean and moisturized skin.

 2. Brushes, applicators and hands should be clean and dry.

 3. Do not share brushes or applicators.

 4. Be gentle with your skin. Do not pull or rub vigorously.

 5. Use the right shade of makeup to enhance your natural beauty.

 6. When in doubt, use less instead of more.

 7. Blend makeup well.

 8. Always use the restroom to touch up youR face.

 9. If you have dry to normal skin, use liquid base makeup.

 10. Powder compacts are better for oily skin.

 11. With liquid base, apply small dots over your face and spread. With powders, apply using a sponge or balls of your fingers, always in the direction of your facial hair growth. Blend and smoothen evenly.

 12. Eyeliner should be applied with a steady hand, thickening towards the outer corner of the eye accentuates your eye shape.

 13. You can use a kajal pencil in the rim for your eyes to give your eyes depth.

 14. Mascara should never be clumped. Lashes should look long and thick. To separate lashes use an eyelash curler.

 15. Blusher should be used sparingly for just a hint of colour on you cheeks.

 16. Use a lip–liner or pencil to accentuate your lips. If you have full lips, line your lips inside your actual lip line and outside your actual lip line for thinner lips.
