Let's start with daily makeup. If you are unsure of the amount of makeup to put on, it is always prudent to be wrong to have too little makeup. If you're still experimenting with what's best for you, you can start by using a soft and dull color palette. Depending on your preference as a makeup artist, you can choose a foundation liquid, cream, cake or mousse in a shade that comes closest to the natural color of your skin. Choose a companion concealer for areas that have a spot or for the area under the eyes that is often a shade darker than the rest of your face. First put the concealer and then the foundation making sure the edges are well mixed. When choosing your foundation, you need to know what type of skin you have – oily or dry or a combination. It will also be helpful if you know your complexion so that you get the most out of your foundation. There are oil-free formulas for already oiled and cream-based skins for dry skin. Apply your foundation under the same kind of light as you will appear.
There are illuminated mirrors that you can buy for this purpose. Bring out the make-up artist by learning how to use shimmery sticks, bronzing powders or liquid foundations with a shimmery finish. Used in the right amount and on the right places on your cheekbones or on your jawline, these will add a healthy glow to your face. If you have oily skin, learn how to use blotting paper to skim oils that tend to appear on your face around noon or even earlier. Cheeks can always use a touch of heat. Dab a darker shade of your foundation on the apple of your cheeks, mixing them in a circular motion.
Learn the different techniques of using eye-liners to accentuate your eyes or to hide imperfections. Learn to use lips to define your lips and minimize "bleeding lines". Master the use of different types of mascara sticks to get that sensual kid look or googly look. You can master all of the above in a timely manner and become your own makeup artist .
