Your complexion will determine a lot of things, starting from the shade of your foundation, face powder and so on. Based on the exact tone of your skin color, you have to decide what flaws you would like to hide. After you have determined your skin complexion, go for purchasing moisturizer, face powder, and other makeup articles accordingly.

2. Choosing the moisturizer

We all know how important moisturizers are in order to have healthy, rejuvenated skin. Simply put, moisturizers are like the food for your skin. Thus, they play an important part in your makeup routine, since you begin the makeup routine for your face with them. There are separate moisturizers available for various types of skin – either oily, dry, or a combination type. While buying your moisturizer, remember your skin type. Foundations can also be used instead of moisturizers.

3. Concealers are a must

Among all the makeup tips for beginners, this one is neglected by most. Concealers are the best to hide any flaws on your face like those stubborn dark circles or acne marks.

4. Next comes face powder

Take a soft powder puff and apply face powder all over your face in a circular movement. This will set your concealer and moisturizer.

5. Apply eye shadow

Next you should start the step-by-step eye makeup routine by first applying a neutral shade of eye shadow such as aubergine or taupe. You may just use your finger or a round brush and swipe across your eyelid.

6. A tip for eye shadows

Do you adore the look that multiple eye shadows applied delicately by experts gives you? If you want to try out that style, we have advice that will make your job a lot easier. The most difficult thing to decide when you are applying more than one color is which colors will suit the best if and when used together. The greatest solution for this problem is getting yourself a natural palette. These eye shadow palettes are available in any makeup store and you will find that all of the colors in these palettes correspond with one another. Sometimes these shadows are even specifically labeled to indicate which area the colors need to be applied to. This is one of the most important eye makeup tips for beginners.

7. Try the eyeliner

Since you are a beginner, we suggest you use a black pencil and apply a thin stroke on your upper lash, instead of going for the wet eyeliners.

8. Curl your lashes

To curl your eyelashes you have to take a lash curler and put it at the very baseline of your upper lashes. Then just press and wait for five seconds.

9. Apply the mascara

Apply mascara on both the upper and lower lashes with the wand. One coat of mascara should do the trick.

10. Make yourself blush

Take your blush and move it upwards from the apple of your cheeks towards the temple. Cream blushes are great as they give off a natural glow and blend in easily instead of powder ones.

11. Time for lipstick or lip gloss

This is the easiest step for every beginner and thus gives you a lot of room for experimenting. Just pucker your lips and run the tube of lipstick or lip gloss evenly over your lips.

12. Never over do your makeup

If you are a beginner, you may not be too sure about what amount of makeup to use on your face. Until you have gained expertise, try and use only as little makeup as is necessary. If you overdo your makeup by accident, you might not end up looking very pleasant. In the beginning, just stick to giving yourself a neutral look, as this will gradually help you gain confidence in applying makeup. Once you have attained perfection with practice, however, you can go for a much more elaborate makeup session.

13. Go for safe makeup

If you are a beginner and don’t know which makeup would suit you and which wouldn’t, we suggest that you go for a safe option. Moreover, you should be even safer if you have extra sensitive skin and get rashes upon using makeup products. But worry not, that does not mean you cannot use makeup products on your face any more. It is quite possible to have an allergic reaction if your skin is sensitive. So, in order to be safe rather than sorry, we suggest that you use makeup products that are labeled as ‘hypoallergenic.’ These products are tested to work great on sensitive skin.

The mind of an introvert works in the weirdest fashion. They are overly sensitive, sentimental and have tons of thoughts running through their minds, but at the same time, for reasons unknown even to themselves, they like nothing better than to stay aloof. Being one such self-confessed introvert, I have always loved putting my thoughts into words. Good books and music with moving lyrics work as my Muse. Children and things abounding with innocence strengthen my faith in goodness. Contemporary Indian works of literature make me a happy bookworm, and songs by Coldplay brighten up my day like nothing else! Here's hoping you will enjoy reading my posts, for you can trust an introvert to be a keen observer and a very devoted blogger!
