Who doesn’t want to have the perfect makeup routine? With the right tools, the perfect routine can help turn a full day or night out into a glamorous affair.

Whether you’re starting out or you’re looking for a few new tips on getting the most out of your efforts, you need to know what to do. Luckily, we want to help. Keep reading to find out how to build the perfect makeup routine:

Cleanse Your Skin

Before makeup application, cleansing is a must. Cleansing your skin will remove dirt and oils from your face and create a clean and fresh canvas to work with.

Use a gentle cleanser suitable for your skin type that does not contain harsh detergents. After a thorough cleanse, be sure to apply a toner or astringent to remove any remaining oils and impurities.

Apply a Light Moisturizer

Moisturizer helps your makeup look natural and prevents your skin from drying out and cracking. It also ensures that the makeup has something to adhere to so that it stays in place.

Depending on the type of skin you have, you may need to discover the right moisturizer for you. For normal skin, a lightweight lotion is a good choice or a tinted spray moisturizer. You can even order tinted spray moisturizer here.

For those with dry skin, a heavier cream is ideal, while for oily skin, a gel or oil-free moisturizer is best. Once you’ve created a foundation, your makeup routine can take shape.

Select a Suitable Foundation

Depending on skin type, complexion, and desired amount of coverage, there are various types of foundations to choose from, such as powder, cream, liquid, and mousse.

It is important to select a foundation that matches one’s skin tone as possible so that the skin looks even and flawless. Before investing in a full size bottle, it is recommended to test a small sample on the jawline and blend it out.

Dust a Translucent Powder

Building the perfect makeup routine starts with a light dust of translucent powder. This will help even out your skin tone, blur and absorb excess oils, and help your makeup look smooth and stay put.

Apply Blush, Bronzer, and Highlighter in the Correct Areas

For the best makeup routine, applying blush bronzer and highlighter in the correct areas is essential. Apply bronzer in the areas of your face that catch the sun – the forehead, bridge of the nose, tops of the cheekbones, and chin.

Blush should be applied to the apples of the cheeks, where natural blush would appear. Highlighter should be applied to the highest points of your cheeks – the areas under the eyebrow arch and above the cheekbones. 

Applying a Brow Powder, Eyeshadow, Eyeliner, Mascara, and Lip Color

To build a beautiful brow look, use brow powder eyeshadow to give form, shape, and color. This versatile product can be used to fill in sparse areas to create a fuller look and define your natural arch.

Use an eyeliner to frame and open up your eyes. Then add volume and length to your lashes with a few coats of mascara. Complete the look with a lip color in a shade that complements your skin tone and adds a pop of color.
