By  | 

From the moment of prepping for makeup to the end when you have finished, there are a number of mistakes you could be making, according to make up artists. These may be habits you picked up from television programmes, YouTube, friends, and yourself during your teenage years; so, in order to help you assemble a good make up routine and finished look, I have found all the specific things makeup artists point out. Read on for further information!

Prep the skin

The first step is never the foundation; in fact, it is the barely in the top three. The first thing to do for your skin is to make sure your skincare products are applied with the promotion of hydration, moisturisation, and protection. You must use a sun cream/SPF as part of your skincare routine, which can also act as a primer. If you wish to use a separate primer, then that comes after the SPF. After all these steps, it is finally time for your foundation.


It is vital to note that not only do you need the perfect shade of foundation for your skin tone, but you also need flattering colours for your concealer, contour, bronzer, and blusher.


Everything looks different depending on the light, so it is best to use natural light as much as possible. If natural light is not an option, choose a warm white LED light, which most closely resembles the outside.

Too much concealer

Too much of trying to cover something up can actually instead highlight it. Make sure you apply a good amount of product and do not overdo it. To avoid this, steer clear of thick foundations or concealers. 

Lip care

It is important to look after the lips as they are a key facial feature. Keep them moisturised under all the lip products!

Bronzer in the right places

Sometimes people use far too much bronzer to look sun-kissed and end up looking more orange than tan. Instead, think about where the sun naturally hits your skin the most: the tops of your cheekbones, gently around your hairline, and possibly around the jaw line.
