3 Golden Rules of Makeup for Beauty Newbie’s
3 Golden Rules: Whether you’ve never worn makeup before or you’ve been dabbling for a while. And want to perfect your skills, there are always more things to learn. When it comes to the world of cosmetics and beauty, there are always new techniques. And products emerging which are worth learning about.
However, before you get too excited and want to start trying out advanced techniques, you should rewind and start from the basics. The best way to master your skills is to start slowly and work your way to the top. In order to get you started, here are the 3 most important rules to get you started with makeup.
Less Is More
When it comes to applying cosmetics, you may think that more is the way to go. However, too much makeup can actually lead to looking even worse if applied incorrectly. For example, if you are applying makeup in order to cover a blemish, or perhaps you suffered an injury which you want to conceal using makeup, the more that you cake on, the more you can accentuate what you are trying to cover.
Try to think of your face as a canvas. Everything should be a delicate balance which avoids being too heavy in one area over another. Try to start light and work your way up to a heavier look as you get more experienced. Otherwise, you run the risk of looking like you haphazardly slabbed paint on your face.
When purchasing makeup, it’s important to opt for higher quality products rather than from a drugstore. If you purchase products which are poorly made and full of chemicals which could potentially cause a breakout, you aren’t doing your skin any favours.
Even though top-shelf products may cost more, you will find that they last longer and give you better results and better coverage. Think of your beauty as an investment. The more that you put into your cosmetics the more that you’ll get out of it.
Wash Your Face Every Day
One of the biggest rookie mistakes that people can make one first applying makeup is skipping washing their face. This not only clogs your pores and creates breakouts, but you aren’t clearing the canvas each time that you apply makeup. This results in a less than smooth application and a look that’s less than ideal.
Washing your face doesn’t have to be a big task. It’s simply a matter of incorporating it into your nightly routine. There are many products available on the market which are suited for your skin type. Some can be purchased for as little as a few dollars or if you want more than just a face wash, you can opt for something on the higher end which reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
