Simple make up routine.
Looking good is the most basic thing we do to feel good about ourselves, we flick that wing, pat that powder and brush the blush. All of us have different skin and makeup routine, but we need to know what the basics of makeup are. However, this post will show you the most basic make routine that suits all types of skin.
STEP 1 – MOISTURIZER
Wash your face and pat dry. Once dried apply your daily moisturizer, it is better to avoid a greasy one if you are going to wear makeup.
STEP 2 – PRIMER
Primer is primarily is used to even out the skin. Apply the primer to your entire face with your fingers to give your face that even skin look !
STEP 3 – CONCEALER
Concealer is probably the most important step in the makeup routine. I cannot stress the importance of a concealer enough. We all have blemishes, dark circles and pigmentation to conceal, so dab a generous amount of concealer on the required area and pat ( do not blend into the skin as yet ).
I use Inglot Cream concealer to conceal my dark spots, its creamy base ensures that all your spots are concealed without any re-application.

STEP 4 – FOUNDATION
Once you have covered your blemishes, its time to apply the foundation. Finding the right foundation that matches your skin complexion is the key to achieving the desired look, so we request you to spend some time and money on picking the right foundation. Avoid applying too much on areas that you have concealed and apply the desired amount on the entire face and blend in with a stippling brush. This will help blend the concealer and the foundation without leaving a cakey look.
Powder foundations are great for everyday use, they are simple to apply and are long lasting too. When applied after moisturizer it lasts for about a good 6 hours !
STEP 5 – POWDER
Set the foundation with a powder to ensure the make up stays longer. Apply a little extra with fingers on the concealed areas if required.
STEP 6 – BRONZER AND BLUSH
If you have heard about contouring, you will know how a bronzer works. Apply a little bit of bronzer on the sides of your nose, under your jawline and under your cheekbone diagonally to attain a slimmer look. Once this is done smile as wide as you can and apply the blush on the apples of your cheek !
The blush recommended is “le blush” by L’oreal true match again. It is a gorgeous pink and suits almost all complexions of skin ! It has a whisper of glitter that makes it perfect for a night out too !
STEP 7 – EYE MAKE UP
Eye make up can change your entire look! Opt for a smokey eye for a glamourous evening or simple mono colored eye shadow for a date night ! The order of eye make up should be eye shadow, liner, mascara and eyebrow pencil.
STEP 8 – LIPSTICK
The bright red is trending right now. But you could always mix two shades of colors depending on your outfit. Always line your lips with a darker shade than your lipstick to ensure a sculpted look and finish with gloss !
