5 Easy Steps to Applying Makeup
By Julia Anderson
Step 1: Foundation
After cleansing, toning and moisturizing
your face, apply a small amount of foundation
to the tip of your index finger. Dot on
your forehead, nose, cheeks and chin; then
blend in an upward and outward motion without
leaving a line. Be sure to apply foundation
over your eyelids and blend carefully. Glance
in the mirror to ensure there's no line.
You can use a concealer to cover imperfections
such as blemishes and dark spots.
Step 2: Translucent Powder
Using a powder brush apply translucent
powder in a downward motion for a smooth
finish. Translucent Powder helps eye makeup
and blush to go on smoother and blend better.
It also keeps your face looking fresh and
your makeup will last longer.
Step 3: Eye Makeup
Starting at your lash line, apply your
base color first. Then apply your crease
color in the crease area. Apply your highlight
color in the highlight color area, below
the brow bone. Finally, blend the colors
with a cotton ball or your fingertip to
remove any obvious line. If the colors are
too bright tone them down with a little
translucent powder. Next, apply your mascara
and finally, dust your entire face downward
with translucent powder.
Step 4: Blush
Your blush should be applied to the apples
of your cheeks to radiate when you smile.
It should go no closer to your nose, but
directly beneath the iris of your eye; below
nostril-level and into your temple hairline.
A must-have: a good blush brush that's tapered
for precise placement.
Step 5: Lipstick
Define the outline of your lips with a
professional lip brush or lip liner pencil
that closely matches the color of your lipstick.
Then apply your lipstick and blend the liner
with a lip brush. Start from the center
