You have to be very careful to choose the right foundation for your skin type. Remember, water base foundations are suitable for oily skins, whereas creamy based foundations are for dry skin. You have to have two different foundations, one for the day and one for the evening. The foundation you choose must be closer to your skin tone. Blending foundation is very important. Use fingers or sponge to apply foundation on your face.

Face powder helps to set the foundation. It is important to carry compact powder in your hand bag, and apply once in a while. Compact powder touch gives you long lasting makeup. With a large powder brush, apply loose translucent face powder. Make sure powder does not settle on tiny wrinkles, eyes and eyebrows.

Blushers have different shades such as rose, russet, coral, pink etc. There are many types of blusher available in the market; however, powder blushers are more common. Powder blushers are not only easy to apply, but also blend quite naturally. If your skin is pallid, you must avoid brown or orange tone.
Lipsticks come in different colors. Ability to choose the right color gives your entire face a define look. Before you add color, outline your lips with a light lipliner.

You have to be very careful about your eyes and eyebrows. Plenty of men find eyes the most attractive organs in a woman’s body. Today it has become quite common for many Asian women – mostly Chinese, Korean and Japanese – to go for eyelid surgery to give more define looks to their eyes.
Eyebrows not only protect your eyes from dust, but also form an exotic frame for the eyes. It is important to keep eyebrows in perfect balance with the shape of the face. You can give a proper shape to your eyebrows by threading or remove stray hairs with a tweezer. Remember, not to pluck hairs right above the brows. After your eyebrows get defined shape, use light feathery strokes with an eyebrow pencil. You have to use a brown pencil or shadow instead of black, because brown color gives you a more natural looks. Nevertheless, you may use black pencil if you have dark black eyebrows.

Eye shadows come in cream or powder. They can be frosted or matte finished. Powder shadows are more popular as they are easier to apply and blend. Use light colors to highlight and dark colors to make the area recede.
Mascara and eyeliner

After you are done with makeup, look into a small mirror and see if there are smudges on your face. Brush your face with a large clean brush. Brushing helps you to remove excess powder or eye shadow.
