2. Using Skincare Before Makeup is a Must
Don’t ever dream to have long-lasting and flawless makeup if you don’t wear skincare before applying makeup. Because skincare is the key to having long-lasting and flawless makeup. I know you will be confused cause there’s no connection between skincare and makeup. But let me explain it to you girls!
When you use skincare, you will make your skin hydrated and moist. With this skin condition, your base makeup will stick well on your skin. Therefore, your makeup can look flawless and long-lasting! If you think oily skin doesn’t need to use skincare because it will make your makeup cakey, you’re wrong!
Girls you just need to choose the right skincare to avoid this worst thing happening to you. We recommend you choose moisturizer or skincare products that have a watery texture. And using the fewer product also help you.
3. Choose Primer Based on Your Skin Type
Another tip for having flawless makeup is to use a primer. Primer will help you to overcome your skin problems like oily, big pores, or dryness. Not only for making your makeup flawless, but primer can also make your makeup long-lasting.
Therefore, you should choose primer based on your skin type to get the result. Because if you choose the wrong primer, your effort gonna be useless. But if you’re still curious to choose the right primer, let me help you.
First, you can choose a primer that has a silicone texture for you who have oily skin. This kind of primer will blur your big pores and hold the oil on your face for a few hours. Next, for you who have dry skin, cream or gel texture primer will be a great choice for you to make your skin hydrated.
4. Even Your Skin Tone with Foundation
Have uneven skin? I know it will disturb your look that makes you feel insecure. But you don’t have to feel insecure anymore, because you can use foundation as the solution for this problem. Believe me, your skin will look flawless and gorgeous after using it.
But, that doesn’t mean you can pick whatever foundation that you like! You still need to choose a foundation based on your skin type. So, for you who have oily skin, you can choose a matte finish foundation. Meanwhile, if you have dry skin, you can prefer a dewy finish foundation that will not make your skin dry.
Furthermore, how to apply this product will determine your makeup finish too. If you want to get a natural finish look, you can blend the foundation using a beauty sponge. But for you who need the coverage, blending using a foundation brush will be the best choice.
5. Cover Your Blemishes Using Concealer
Don’t be sad if you already use foundation but your blemishes still can be seen. You can overcome this problem by using a concealer. It’s because concealer has higher coverage than foundation. That’s why it can cover your blemishes very well.
We do recommend you prefer a liquid texture to cream to get a natural finish look. Furthermore, you can start to apply concealer only on the area that you need like a dark circle, dark spots, or acne. Don’t forget to blend it slowly for not to make the concealer move away.
6. Set Your Base Makeup with Loose Powder
After you feel your face already looks flawless, you can continue to set it with loose powder. If you want your makeup to look natural, we recommend you prefer loose powder over any kind of powder. But if you need more coverage, you can add two-way cake powder or powder foundation.
For those who have oily skin, you should do the baking technique if you want your makeup to stay all day. Don’t worry, doing this technique is so easy! You just have to take a lot of powder with a sponge and put it on the area that easy to get oil and you put a concealer. But if you have dry skin, we don’t recommend this technique because will make your makeup crack.
7. Give an Illusion to Your Face Using Contour
Use contour to bring back the face dimension or give an illusion to your face. Contour has two types, there are cream contour and powder contour. Cream contours are made for those people who have dry skin because it will not make your skin dry. Meanwhile, powder contour is for people who have oily skin. But it’s okay if you want to use both of them to make a sharp contour.
For this makeup, we suggest you choose between one of them to get a natural finish. Apply contour on the area that you want to give an illusion like your cheek, jawline, hairline, and nose. Remember to blend it well until there’s no harsh line to prevent a tacky look.
8. Use Blush to Get a Blushy Cheek
Makeup will not be complete without blush because it’s a kind of product that will make your face look fresh and sweet. But it can also make you look tacky if you choose the wrong color. Therefore, using nude color is a solution for you.
