5 makeup rules from a makeup artist

Makeup has no rules, but when it comes to having a perfect and long-lasting makeup application, there are some you should follow. On today’s post, I share 5 makeup rules you should live by to get that flawless, “instagramable” makeup look.


#1 Set your foundation

Always set the foundation, concealer or any cream product you apply to the face. This will prevent your face from caking, creasing, looking oily and will make your makeup last longer.

Tips for

Use a translucent loose powder to avoid altering the color of your foundation.

Draw your brows every time all the time. Although it looks like the no-brow look is a tendency, they play the most important part of makeup. Eyebrows help define the face and serve as a guide when you’re applying your makeup. Start by applying a little pressure on the beginning of the brow to create natural looking hair and work your way to the end applying more pressure. You’ll create that ombré look and they’ll look perfect and natural at the same time.

 Match your foundation to your neck
Chose your foundation shade according to your neck. Your forehead and cheeks are always exposed to the Sun and you never wear foundation on your arms, so why try it there. Apply using a synthetic brush or a beauty sponge and work your way down to the neck to avoid a harsh line in the jawline and to get an even application.

Use a primer
Use a face and eye primer. This will help your makeup last longer and avoid getting oily or hydrate your skin if the case. The eye primer is very important. It will also help the eyeshadows last longer, blend easier and get its true colors. If you have dry skin, It will help your makeup look flawless, diminish the appearance of pores and fine lines.

Know your skin.
To achieve all of this you HAVE to know your skin type, oily, dry or combined and your face shape, rectangular, circle, oval, triangular or squared. This will help you get the correct products according to your face necessities. Knowing your face shape will help you contour and highlight.

All this steps, products or rules are essential for the perfect makeup application. For a flawless and long lasting look. I hope this post helps you a lot. If you have any questions please let me know down below. You can also reach out to me on social media. Thank you for reading.
