Sweet Makeup Tutorial for Your First Date
Use Face Mask as the First Step
Do you know the benefit of using the face mask before doing the makeup? It can make your makeup look smooth! Because face masks will lift the dead skin and give nutrition to your skin. We recommend you use a clay mask, wash-off mask, or peel-off mask. Meanwhile, you can change with a sheet mask if your skin is in a dry condition.
Moisturizing Your Skin is Very Important!
After using a face mask usually, your skin will get dry, especially a mask that has the function to lift dead skin cells or reduce oil. If you let your skin condition like this, I’m sure the makeup won’t stick to your skin and make it easier to get smudge or patchy.
You can prevent this condition by using a moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type. Or maybe you can add a few more skincare that can hydrate your skin, maybe like toner, essence, and serum. Furthermore, use less of every skincare to make it absorb well into the skin. The tips from us are gently pat your face with your clean hands to help the skincare absorb quickly or you have to wait around 15-30 minutes before applying makeup.
Flawless Makeup? Don’t Skip Primer!
Have you waited for 15-30 minutes? If you are, you can jump to the makeup product! As the base of your makeup, we’re gonna use primer that gives a benefit to make your skin flawless. It is because primer has the function to solve your skin problem. Therefore, picking the right primer based on the needs is very necessary.
Now, take less of the product, then apply it with your hands to the area that having trouble such as a big pore, the area that easy to gets crack, or the T-zone area for oily skin. Ensure it already blends, then you can go to the next step!
Using a lightweight complexion is very important for this makeup because it won’t get greasy or crack easily and feels like wearing nothing. Therefore, a cushion gonna be our choice at this time for the complexion.
The cushion has compact packaging where it can fit into your bag. so, you can touch up your complexion very easily. There is also a negative side to the cushion which is it has a light to medium coverage that can’t hide your blemishes. But I think it’s not gonna be a big problem because you can do a layering technique or use a product that can give extra coverage.
Concealer if For the Extra Coverage
If you have been guessing about what kind of product that can give extra coverage, the answer is a concealer! Or maybe you can skip the complexion product and then only use coverage to hide your blemishes.
Yes, concealer is already enough to cover the imperfection, so it’s gonna be fine if you skip any complexion product. If you use concealer to cover your blemishes, you can choose a shade that is similar to your skin tone. Meanwhile, if you use it to highlight your face, pick a shade that is lighter than your skin.
Feels like your skin looks flawless? Okay, you can wait for a few minutes until the cushion and concealer absorb, then continue to the powder. You have to choose the translucent powder to prevent looking too much. It’s up to you if you prefer the pressed or loose powder texture.
Focus on applying the product to the area where you already put the concealer to prevent it from getting patchy. Then, for oily skin, you need to use the powder on the greasy area such as the t-zone, chin, and forehead.
Bronze Your Face with Powder Bronzer
We forbid you from doing contouring! It’s because contour is only suited to bold makeup, not to natural makeup. When you use to contour, your makeup gonna be looking harsh and too much. So, if you want to give dimension to your face, you may use a bronzer.
You also need to choose the bronzer that has a warm tone and has 1-2 shades under your skin tone. This trick gonna help you to make your makeup look more natural. Furthermore, apply the bronzer based on the face shape. If you still don’t know about applying the contour in the right way, maybe you can search for the tutorial.
Make your makeup look sweet by using a blush! Wear a powder blush to give a natural look and also you can adjust the thickness.

Some of the cream blush has a striking color that is very hard to adjust, and it can make your complexion look patchy. Therefore, if you want to save your date makeup, powder blush is the right choice!
