Right now is the perfect time to hone your makeup skills for when you can finally get out of the lockdown situation. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner! Just follow these steps from professional makeup artist and the next time you apply makeup and go out somewhere, you’re going to turn some heads!
1. Contour Your Cheeks Correctly
Step 1: Suck your cheeks in and feel your cheekbone with a finger. When you begin to contour your face, make sure that your brush is at the bottom edge of your cheekbone.
Step 2: Load your angled contouring brush with a contour powder/bronzer that is two to three shades darker than your skin tone and swipe down from your ear to the apple of your cheek.
Step 3: Choose any blush that goes well with your skin tone and dab it on to the apple of your cheeks. Blend it out with circular motions for a rosy glow!
2. Highlight Your Face To Look Like A Goddess
Step 1: Apply the highlighter alongside the top of your cheekbone in a C-shape that goes up to your temples and make sure not to get it too close to your under-eye area while blending.
Step 2: Dab a little highlighter onto the tip of your nose, and you can also apply it in a straight line from the top to the bottom of your nose.
Step 3: Highlight your forehead by swiping some highlighter down the centre of your forehead and then by gently blending it outwards. You can also draw attention to your lips by highlighting the centre of your chin.
Step 4: For the ultimate popping look, apply some highlighter to the inner corner of your eyes, some over your brow bones, and a little onto your cupid’s bow.
3. Execute The Perfect Smokey Eye
Step 1: Apply a thin coat of eyeshadow primer and then use a small eyeshadow brush to apply the lightest shade onto the inner corner of your eyes and under your brows.
Step 2: Take the darkest shade and apply it along your upper and lower lashline. Swirl your brush up towards your crease to blend it out.
Step 3: Add a medium shade along the center of your eyelid and blend it to create an ombre effect with the darker shade.
Step 4: Use a fluffy brush to blend all the shades until there are no visible harsh lines, and then proceed to apply eyeliner and mascara for an ultra-dramatic look!
4. Create The Perfect Winged Eyeliner
Step 1: Draw an extended line on the outer edge of your eyes, angling it with your eyebrows and then stop at your preferred length.
Step 2: Draw a straight diagonal line from the tip of your wing to the middle of your upper lash line and then extend this line to the inner corner of your eye.
Step 3: Fill in the gaps with eyeliner until there’s no skin peeking through.
5. Create The Illusion of Bigger Lips
Step 1: Before you start applying your lipstick, apply a full coverage concealer and then overline your lips with a lip liner but don’t go too overboard!
Step 2: Take a lighter shade of lipstick and fill in your lips up to the area extended with your lip liner.
Step 3: To make your lips look even fuller, highlight the middle of your lips with your favourite lip gloss!
