I am back with another awesome post for you all! Today, we would be talking about how to make your makeup look smooth and flawless. Makeup is an essential part of a woman’s life as it not only makes her look beautiful but it also makes her feel confident. Faking perfect skin with makeup can be an easy task only if you put in some time and effort into making your foundation, eye makeup, and concealer look smooth, flawless and perfect.
So, if you have been taking efforts to make those layers of foundation on your skin look flawless, here are some easy ways to do.
1. Exfoliate Your Skin:
In order to make your makeup look flawless and smooth, you should exfoliate your skin regularly. Use a mild scrub to cleanse your skin deeply. Exfoliating is important as it helps to get rid of the excess oil on the skin and also unclogs the pores. Scrubbing helps to remove the dead skin cell easily and also promotes brighter skin. Exfoliating allows your makeup to look airbrushed and smooth all the day. You could use the Fabindia Almond Face Scrub or the Collistar Firming Talasso Scrub for best results.
2. Use Primer Only After You Moisturize:
Primer is one of the essential beauty products that can make your makeup look smooth and flawless. In order to make your skin look airbrushed, you should be using a primer. To prevent creasing of your primer, you should always use a moisturizer before it. Using a moisturizer before applying primer will prevent it from settling into the fine lines on your face. Also, it will help to cover the flaws on the skin easily. Yoy could use the Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer or the Milani Prime Light Strobing Pore Minimizing Face Primer for best results.
3. Opt For Matte Foundations:
In order to make your makeup look smooth and radiant, you should be using matte foundations. Choosing the right foundation is key and hence you should be very cautious while choosing your makeup products. The matte finish is a better option as it cuts down the unnecessary shine on the face. Also, it lasts for a long period of time and makes your skin look perfectly prepped. Opt for something like the NARS Sheer Matte Foundation or the L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Matte Foundation for best results.
4. Apply In Small Quantity:
You should never dab a large amount of foundation on the face all at once. Applying larger quantity can make your face look cakey and artificial. You should dab small dots of foundation on the face and blend evenly. Make sure you blend well on your forehead, jaw-line and the side of your nose. You can blend your makeup perfectly with beauty blenders. Beauty blender is a perfect choice to evenly spread your makeup and make it look smooth and radiant. You can use the Beauty Blender Sponge or any other makeup sponge for best results.
5. Do Not Hesitate To Use Your Fingers:
There has been a long debate if fingers can be used to apply flawless makeup or not! Well, yes, fingers can help to achieve flawless and radiant makeup. Using fingers can help blend your makeup seamlessly on the skin and prevent creasing. Also if you want to prevent any harsh lines on the skin, you should be using your fingers to blend the makeup. Finish off with some loose powder using a powder brush. Also, the warmth of the fingers can help to blend the foundation perfectly.
6. Use Of Colour Correctors:
You should certainly be using colour correctors in order to balance the skin tone. Color correctors are perfect for covering the dark circles under the eye. You should use a peach shade for light or extremely fair skin. People with slightly dark or medium skin tone should be using orange colour. You should apply dots under the eye and blend it with the help of your fingers. Using colour correctors can help to cancel out any darkness on the skin easily. The Max Factor The Balancer Color Corrector Stick or the Bobbi Brown Color Corrector are some of the best options to choose from.
7. Pay Attention To Your Nose:
One of the biggest mistakes most of us make is avoiding the nose and corners of the nose. You should apply some foundation and set the makeup with loose powder. You can use brush or fingers to apply makeup on the nose. Always make sure to use a sharp brush in order to conceal the corners of the nose properly. Dab off the excess powder using a blotting paper.
8. Unwanted Shine On The Lipstick:
Not everything looks good when it shines! You should opt for a matte lipstick in order to make your lips appear fuller, soft and beautiful. In order to get rid of the unwanted shine on the lips, dab a blotting paper on it. This will help to remove the glossiness from the lips thus giving you a sexy pout!
