Getting perfect makeup is a must in this day and age. There are so many perfect looking pictures on Instagram and faces on YouTube, it’s hard not to feel like an amateur. 

But just about anybody can learn how to do makeup and do it well! Here are some of my tips for perfect makeup. Enjoy!

Learn Your Skin Type

If you want perfect makeup, you first need to know your skin type. If you don’t, you could be using all kinds of products that are making your skin look worse rather than better. You want your skin to look flawless! Knowing your skin type means you can invest in products that will assist it and help you look your best. 

Take Care of Your Skin

Before you even consider using makeup to cover your skin, you should know how to take care of your skin first. Make sure you’re cleansing, toning, and moisturising each day. You should also be using a serum, exfoliator, and face mask regularly too. Once you’re in a good routine, your makeup will look even better. 

Always Use a Primer

If you don’t already use a primer, you’re missing a trick. Primers will not only make your foundation stay on longer, they’ll blur imperfections and make your face look flawless. Never apply your foundation without applying your primer first.

Invest in Brushes and Sponges 

Don’t just apply your makeup with your fingers. While you can still get a decent finish, you’ll achieve a much better look if you use brushes and sponges. Just make sure you keep them clean and replace them when you need to. 

Ask a Pro for Tips

If you ever have the opportunity, ask a pro for tips. You could even have a mobile beauty therapy service come to do your makeup before a night out and ask for tips that way. 

Watch Lots of Tutorials and Practice

There are loads of tutorials you can watch online, so watch them and do your makeup along with them to help you practice. The more you practice, the better you’ll get. You can’t just expect to get better at it if you only do your makeup once in a blue moon. Find some makeup gurus on YouTube that you like and watch their tutorials regularly to learn a bunch of new things. 

Do Your Eyes Before Your Foundation

Usually, people do their foundation and the rest of their face, before doing their eyes. If you do your eyes first, you’ll easily be able to clean up mistakes without ruining the rest of your makeup. You can then apply your foundation and other makeup products to get a flawless finish. This is a great tip if you want to get super creative with your eyeshadow!
