Now, Of course choosing 3 products from them will be very difficult as to look flawless again. So, I have an advice here to all of you who finds this article helpful. Choose those 3 products which will help you to compensate for other two or three products as well. This way, we can achieve the same look with minimal products, and we are in the game.
1. Making a Flawless Base
Now to create a perfect base, we need basic four things-
- Primer – A primer is to give us the perfect canvas to start with.
- Foundation – We need Foundation next that suits the best shade with correct undertones (Cool, warm or neutral). The shade must be matched with the skin type we have.
- Concealer – We need a concealer to hide some of our imperfections. Come on, we are humans and we have imperfections on our face. Even actresses and dermatologists doesn’t have flawless skin. Its normal.
- Compact powder – We need compact powder to set them all so that it will stay at its place for longer time till the time we finish our event, hopefully.
ADVICE: You really need not to invest on primers as you can make it at home as well. This home-made primer is much more secure and healthy for our skin. Believe me. If you need to know how we can make it. See here a http://beyourgoogle.com/how-to-make-your-own-primer-at-home-all-skin-types/
Coming to the rest three products i.e. foundation, concealer and compact powder. We can replace them with one product and that is wet and dry foundation compact. It’s a 3-in-1 product that can be used as dry and wet as a foundation for naturally skin.
HOW TO USE:
You have two options to apply on your face. If you want a light to sheer coverage, then use it as a dry with a sponge which comes along with the product mostly. If you need a sheer to high coverage, you can damp your sponge and apply little by little product on your face and keep blending in. Blend till the time you get the desired intensity and flawless skin. Now, the beauty of this type of product is that it automatically settles down on its own after few seconds. Still, if you want to set your face, the use it again but dry this time. Try to apply it with light hands as we need the little amount this time in order to avoid cakey face.
TIP OF THE DAY: You can apply two layers of this product on those areas where you have more imperfections like brown spots, dark circles, or any pimple marks or stubborn zits etc. Applying two layers will act as a concealer to some extent. You are a beginner, obviously you are not expecting a face like makeup artists used to do it.
My Recommendations: LAKME Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact ( Buy Here on AMAZON )
So, FIRST PRODUCT – Wet and Dry Foundation Compact.
2. Shaping up back your Face to make it natural
Now, after putting this all, you may find you face flat and without shape. People with no knowledge about makeup might even notice that you have put on something on your face which has ruined your natural beauty. It happens because we train ourselves on how to put more and more base but fail to regain the face back to its shape.
ADVICE: So, for this, you can pickup a multi-tasking Eye shadow palette which has at least these shades in it to make any look you want for any place you go – Black, Dark brown, Light brown, white or off-white, beige or skin color, orange, red, blue, and green.
HOW TO USE:
You can search for dark brown shade if you are from medium to fair skin tone. And apply this on Forehead, below cheeks (Start from ears and drag it till mouth or may be a little early than mouth), and jawline. Basically, you need to a make a 3 on your face. Follow this pic for your reference.
If you are someone who like a sharp and thin nose, you can contour a bit your nose as well. Remember, you must be doing this with light hands as less pressure will only regain its shape and does not ruin your entire face.
My Recommendations: Miss Claire Professional Eyeshadow Palette no.5 (Buy Here on Amazon)
So, SECOND PRODUCT – Eye shadow Palette
3. Adding Definition to your face
Adding definition is nothing but highlighting and working a bit on your natural features. When it comes to natural features, there is only one thing in your face that catches all. EYES.
Yes, defining your eyes and grooming your eyebrows can never go wrong to achieve a flawless face.
ADVICE: You can do it with the same eye shadow palette from which we have done our contouring in our previous step above.
HOW TO USE:
Defining your Eyes: Take the same eye shadow palette and you can use it as an eyeliner or even a winged eyeliner by choosing any shade you like. You need not to restrict yourself here to black or brown until and unless you have trained yourself enough to play with colors. This can be tricky, but you must give a shot to this. Also, put some shadow on your lower lash line and use it as a kajal here.
Grooming your Eyebrows: Take a shade from the palette which is closer to your hair color. It can be dark brown, light brown or black. You can groom your eyebrows with them by simply filling sparse areas. You need not to go a little further here as it can ruin the entire look. Obviously, you can practice more to become a pro. (Who stops you). Take this picture as a refrence.
Highlighting your high points: You can take off white or white eye shadow from the same palette and apply on brow bone, cheek bone, bridge of your nose, cupid bow and on chin. Apply it little so that your face glows when light reflects on your face.
TIP of the day: Use Brown color in your lower lash line if you have small eyes and black if you have big eyes. You will look good if you follow this tip. See the difference yourself by doing the same on both eyes at same time.
4. Its time to play with colors
Now, when we are done with perfect base with contouring, defining eyes and grooming eyebrows a little bit, it’s time to put back colors on your face to lift everything up for a fresh look.
You can all do that by adding vibrant lipstick and add some blush on your cheeks.
ADVICE: You need to choose that lipstick which can be used as a lipstick and a blush for your cheeks. Don’t worry, I am not experimenting this by saying so. There are many lipsticks out there in the market by some renowned brands who have come up with this kind of concept.
HOW TO USE:
We all know how to apply lipstick since our childhood when we use to steal our mom’s lipstick and damage it all by just rubbing right around our lips with no sense and art of applying it.
For cheeks, you need to grab your lipstick and take the product out on the tips of your fingers. Obviously, not on all fingers but limit yourself to first two fingers. Rub the product a little to give warmth of your body so that it will be applied seamlessly. Then just pat on your apple of cheeks and starts blending in. Blending means pushing the product away towards your hairline to give a nice shape. Also, this way, it will not sit at one place and spread evenly.
Tip of the day: Use lipsticks from corals or pinks family so that they can be used on cheeks. As pink and coral are two most popular color to put on as a blush, no matter what which skin tone you belong to. Purpose of the blush is to give a fresh and healthy look.
My Recommendation: Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Lip and Cheek Color – ( Buy Here on AMAZON )
So, third product is Lip and Cheek Color Lipstick.
With this, we have come to an end. Summarizing to all three products which you need is :
1.Wet and Dry Foundation Compact.
2.Eye shadow Palette
3.Lip and Cheek Color Lipstick.
