Step by step makeup

We all are Narcissus, in a way, and all our life we are followed by Echo. Actually, there is nothing harm in being in love with yourself, and being pursued by other people. This is the underlining ethic of trying to look good and being followed by admirers. Makeup has the power to transform your personality. You will not only gain confidence but also have a tremendous impact on people’s perception about you.

Before you begin the makeup, or buy cosmetic products for that matter, the first thing you need to know is the type of your skin. You have to properly identify what is right for you. If you can’t identify the products that suit you or your skin type, you can take advice of dermatologist, cosmetologist or makeup artist.

Let’s say, you know your skin type and have identified the products that suit you. Here is the list of basic cosmetic products, and tips for a complete makeover.



Before you apply anything, you have to cleanse your facial skin, only then you can use moisturizer. Moisturizer, which is must for all seasons, not only moistens your skin but also provides the base for the makeup.


Very few women have flawless skin, that’s why concealer is very important cosmetic product. It helps to produce smooth color tone. Concealer is used to cover up blemishes like dark spots and patches. Concealer sticks are very popular as they are easy to apply.


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.

You have to apply foundation even on your eyelids. You must not begin your eye makeup without using foundation on your eyelids.


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.


Blusher gives glow to your skin. 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. This helps you to define your lips. Apply lipstick and then blot the lips with tissue. Use little powder on your lips and again apply lipstick. This will give a longer lasting effect.


Eyes and Eyebrows

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 shadow

Knowing the right shade for your eyes is very important. Eye shadow can make you look glamorous, innocent or decent. If you prefer to look glamorous, use glittery eye shadows. Eye shadow helps recontour the eyes and add emphasis to them. Learn to experiment with colors and textures.

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

Mascara and eyeliner makes your eyes bright, giving you appealing look. After you apply eye shadow, you have to use eyeliner and mascara.

The Finishing Touch

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.


The world is beautiful, life is beautiful, and you are beautiful. Now, you are ready to face the world.
