Let’s begin with foundation, many girls make the mistake of taking a liquid foundation and putting some in their hands and rub it on their faces. Place a little on your finger and blend in the foundation, do this little by little. Use your finger tips or to get an even blend you can use a cosmetics sponge. Blend in until your face is smooth and all one color. Don’t forget to blend in around your hairline, under the jaw line and even on the ear lobes.
When you are applying blush it should be applied to the cheeks, make sure that you choose a color that works for you. Blush comes in powder, cream or liquid. Sweep the blush downward from ear to the middle of the check and then beginning in line with the top of ear and then end at the apple of your check. Choose colors that are close to your skin tone.
Applying eye shadow can be a little nerve wracking. For beginners, sweep the lightest shade over the entire area from lash to eyebrow this is your base color and then apply a medium shade on the lower lid, this is where 99 percent of women place their eye shadow . Place the darker shade on the upper lid. If you are using a cream shadow, place that down first and then use a light powder as a sealer. When putting on cream eye shadows use your fingertips for the best results.
