Applying Makeup with 5 Easy Steps !
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 working outwards.
Fatin liyana & Maria Elena used to be my example for simple make up :)
