For beginners, makeup application is more than a walk in the park. What’s even more confusing is watching complicated videos on various social channels. People have different ways of applying makeup. There is no one-size-fits-all sequence. It is for you to experiment and see which process works for you. On the basis of personal experience, we recommend you to buy cosmetics by Estee Lauder.
In this article, we are going to outline the basic steps to applying Estee Lauder makeup.
Let’s delve into specifics.
● Skin preparation
With makeup application, it all starts with a proper skin preparation. Adopting a good skincare routine lays a good foundation for your Estee Lauder makeup.
For starter, you can try exfoliating the face and neck at least twice a week. Exfoliating helps you clear up the skin and get rid of dead skin that makes the skin prone to acne. Making a habit of this makes the skin look more radiant. It also makes your daily skincare routine penetrate the skin better.
There are a variety of exfoliator products in the market. However, you should always go for the one suitable for your skin type.
The best way to ensure your makeup is flawless is to moisturize your face before applying any makeup. Moisturizing allows the products you apply sink in deeper into the skin minimizing the chances of your makeup looking ‘cakey.’
If you want to be a little more sophisticated, apply a primer. It works the same. Otherwise, any moisturizer will do.
● Work on the eyebrows
Working on the eyebrows is one of the most time-consuming tasks in makeup application. It is the reason why it is done earlier on during application.
First, fill in the eyebrow using an eye pencil. You can then add pomade to define the ends of your eyebrows and lock it in with a gel.
● Apply foundation
Foundation does not have to be applied all over the face. You can apply it at the center of your face, around the nose, eyes, as well as your forehead; only areas you want to even out.
It is best to do a little touch up on the jawline to avoid staining your clothes with makeup. Also, use a sponge or brush for application. Avoid using your fingers as they may be dirty, making the skin prone to irritations and acne.
If you have dark spots or acne, make use of a concealer to hide them. Estee Lauder concealers are best used after foundation to ensure they properly blend. For me, I use concealers that are a shade brighter than my foundation.
● Apply eyeshadow
To make your eyes pop, apply an eyeshadow shade that reflects your mood or one that goes hand in hand with your outfit.
● Don’t forget the eyeliner
To give your eyes an edgy look, outline your waterline with Estee lauder espresso waterproof eyeliner. If you decide to do eyeliner at the top eyelid, just make sure it is properly blended out to give a more natural look.
● Blush and highlight
Add a pop of colour to your cheeks by wearing a little Estee Lauder blush. You can then highlight your cheekbones, nose, and browbones. To finish off the look, apply a lip colour of your choice.
