Start with a freshly-washed face (and hands, too). Get a facial, or do one yourself. You want your face to be a clear and smooth canvas for you, the "artist," to do your art. Use a good deep cleansing mask. Do not exfoliate if you have oily or sensitive skin. It will spread bacteria around your face from the already existing blemishes. Use antibacterial soap if you have acne. Also be sure that you replace the towel you use to dry your face every week.



How is the lighting where you apply your makeup? Are you applying your makeup in a bathroom or bedroom with one bright light above your head? Is that one overhead light casting some pretty bad shadows on your facial features, making it difficult for you to judge how much color to apply to your eyes, lips and cheeks?



Before choosing makeup colors, you should learn more about your skin nuance. It is better to choose colors that fit your skin tone, so that the makeup looks natural. Once you know more about these things, applying makeup is becoming easier and you can do this like a professional.



Layer to Achieve Perfect Coverage - Remember, you have more control over your results if you begin with a very small amount of product. Start with a thin layer of well-blended mineral foundation, and then add additional layers, using the same technique. You may need to pour more mineral foundation into the lid and reload your brush in order to achieve the coverage that you desire. Regardless of the level of coverage you need, be sure to continue buffing as you apply your minerals.



Makeup helps those of us who wish our cheekbones were higher, our skin more evenly toned, or our jaws more prominent. Makeup is also a way to celebrate features we love and want to draw attention. From an unusual shade of eyeliner and long, flirty eyelashes, to a brighter lipstick and a bit of sparkle across the cheekbones - make up is the grown-up equivalent of dressing-up.



First, start with moisturizing your face. Make sure you have even distribution, and thoroughly massage the product into your skin. Always moisturize your skin before applying makeup to achieve a more natural result. A moisturizer containing SPF15 or greater is always best to protect your skin against the sun's harmful rays. Next, apply foundation to your face. If you are using liquid foundation, place a pea-size amount of foundation to your cheeks, chin and forehead. Be sure to apply to your nose also and blend outwards towards the cheeks.



Put on powder and concealer. Concealer should be applied to any areas that have imperfections, such as under the eyes, the forehead, cheeks, chin and nose. Make sure it is well blended so that you do not have clumps of concealer on your face. If you prefer, you can use a foundation. This is intended to make your skin tone even. Put on powder over your concealer. This will make your skin look smoother and blemish free. It will also help control oiliness.
