Applying Makeup step by step
You’ll always want to start any makeup service with a full consultation. This is a time when you and your client can share ideas through photos and discuss the overall appearance that you’ll be creating for them. You can make suggestions that pair well with your clients face shape to create the most balanced, flattering look. For instance, for any look, you’ll want to talk about featuring the eyes or lips, choosing one focus to keep things gorgeous and natural.
First, cleanse the face to remove any makeup or oils. If you are using a primer, you can apply this first before anything else. Primer will allow makeup to go on smoother and last longer.
Next, using a small concealer brush, apply eye primer, creating a circle around each eye with tiny dots. Using the same brush or one a bit larger, smooth out the eye primer, creating a well rested look and giving your shadow and liner an even base.
Apply a medium brown shadow close to the lid and blend. Top with a setting powder to lock it in. When it comes to shadow, at any level of experience, blending is the name of the game. You can use a small firm brush to apply eyeliner at the lid line or use a well sharpened eye pencil. To add dimension, use a firm tipped eyeshadow brush and blend in near the outer corner of the eye. You can then finish the eyes by curling the lashes and applying two coats of mascara.
Moving on, using a small concealer brush, concealing any areas with blemishes and gentle blend in.
Next, apply a tinted moisturizer or foundation with a foundation brush, depending on how much coverage your client needs.
To create contouring, go in with an illuminator, using a medium size brush, highlighting areas above the cheekbones and below the arch of each brow. Apply blush to the apples of the cheeks or cheekbones to brighten up her face, blending toward each ear. You may want to finish up with a touch of bronzer depending on the look.
Last, for the lips, apply a lipliner if you are using one. Apply lipstick, choosing a natural tone to pair with a dramatic eye or a pop of color to pair with natural eyes.
