Your home right now but that doesn't mean you can't still feel fresh and confident. Your Everyday makeup should define your bone structure, hide any blemishes, and highlight those beautiful eyes without making you look overdone. So here is a short process broken down into three steps to give you a natural, polished appearance.
Step 1 of 3: Prepping Your Face
Wash your face before applying makeup in the morning, wash your face so you'll be able to start with a fresh canvas. Use a cleanser or simply splash lukewarm water on your face a few times to wash away any debris on your skin then pat it dry gently with a soft towel.
Consider exfoliating. It's not necessary to exfoliate every day, but doing so every few days is essential to keeping your skin looking fresh. Putting makeup on over dry, flaky skin defeats the purpose! Exfoliate your skin using either a small facial brush, an exfoliating scrub, or another exfoliating tool designed for use on the face. Focus on areas that tend to get dry and flaky.
Apply a moisturizer. The last step before applying makeup is putting on some moisturizing lotion. This will help your makeup go on more easily and create a better final look. Choose a good face moisturizer that works with your skin type. Massage it gently all over your face. Don't forget your eyelids, lips, and nose.
Step 2 of 3: Applying Foundation and Powder
Apply a foundation that matches the tone of your skin. Choose a foundation that works with your skin type and matches your coloring. Liquid foundation is a fine choice for many types of skin. You can also use tinted moisturizer or BB cream. If your skin is on the oily side, you might want to consider a compact or powder foundation.
Apply a concealer that matches your skin tone or if you have dark under-eye circles, go one shade lighter. Apply a light amount of concealer using either a concealer brush or your finger by dabbing it under your eyes and gently blending it in. This will make your eyes look bright instead of sleepy.
Apply a powder that matches your skin tone. Use a powder brush to apply the powder to your face in a circular motion. This will give your face a natural-looking finish and help set your foundation so that it stays in place all day.
Apply a pink-toned blush that brings out the best in your facial coloring. Swirl a blush brush in the container, smile, and apply it to the apples of your cheeks in a circular motion.
Step 3 of 3: Applying Eye Makeup and Lip Color
Apply a neutral shadow pallet for a simple, everyday look. neutral tones are all good choices, depending on your eye color. Avoid bright colors, "smokey eye" pallets, and other bold jewel tones, as they'll look out of place during the day. Here's how to apply eyeshadow to make it look natural and pretty:
