Discover these tips for proper makeup application

Most women wear makeup on a daily basis and think they are doing it correctly; however, did you know that there are actual steps when it comes to proper makeup application? Prior to putting on any makeup, you always want to start with a primer first. This serves as a base for applying your makeup and provides a smooth surface, ensuring that your makeup stays on your skin longer. Next you want to apply foundation, either liquid or powder, and let it sit on your skin for about one to two minutes in order to let it settle. Dab concealer on any spots or blemishes that need extra coverage, then dust translucent powder across your face in order to seal in your makeup and prevent excess shine.

After applying powder, you can then proceed to apply your bronzer and or blush to your cheekbones. Follow up with eyeliner, eye shadow and brow powder, as well as lip liner and lipstick. Mascara and lip gloss should be the last two products you apply to your face, as they can be easily messed up and should be applied when you are just about finished with your look.
