Important makeup tips for beginners
So before applying makeup, or purchasing your first set of makeup products, you should keep in mind the following:
Your Skin Tone – To decide on the shades of your facial makeup, you need to know your skin tone, undertone and shade. Three basic skin tones are light, medium, and deep. These are further subdivided into other colours which varies per brand. A trip to M.A.C or Fenty Beauty or a 90sec POWERMATCH online quiz on IL-Makiage may do well for some expert advice on this critical step. Look out for more on our blog page about sustainable and ethical makeup brands.
Brand Association – it is a lot easier to know and decide which brands you want to be associated with at the beginning of your journey. Just like in the world of fashion, there are more ethical, sustainable and cruelty-free options to the world of makeup. Get to know who is who early in the industry so you know where to look for the best products for you and best for our planet. We are going to mention a few in this blog post however there is definitely a lot more to be written! COMING SOON…

The stepXstep Guide
Apply a primer
We are jumping straight to “applying your primer” assuming you have already used your fav cleanser to clean your facial skin. I have an oily t-zone hence I tend to stick to oil-free products and those that cleanse very well with minimal damage. One of the important makeup tips for beginners is that once, you have cleansed your skin, apply a primer. It provides you with a smooth appearance and sets the base of your makeup. Additionally, a primer also helps to keep your make up lasting for a long time. Choose a primer that is suitable for your skin type. Once you applied the primer, do not forget to apply sunscreen!
Apply a concealer
After creating a base for your makeup, apply a concealer to cover your dark circles and blemishes. For more complex makeup, many users use concealer palettes to create more dimension to the face. We advise you to choose a concealer that is +/-2 shades lighter than your foundation.
Next, you need to apply a foundation. Choose a foundation based on your skin tone and undertone, as we mentioned earlier. After applying your foundation using a brush, use a sponge (as seen here) to blend the foundation on your skin evenly.
Your eye make up
After applying your foundation, you should perform a few steps of your eye makeup. This includes correcting your eyebrows if they are thinner and you want a fuller look. Also, apply your eyeliner for a well-defined eye.
Highlight your features
If you want to give an impression of prominent cheekbones, now is the time to do so. Apply a darker shade to create an illusion of your cheekbones. Also, apply a translucent powder at this stage to keep your facial make up intact and lasting longer.
Add a little bit of eye shadow
For a simple makeup, add a soft shade of eyeshadow on your lids. In this look, we chose a blue eye shadow below our eyes and near the teardrop to make our eyes more prominent. I, personally, rarely use false lashes. I am quite happy with my natural ones for a clean minimal look with all my features naturally glowing. I only used a little mascara to darken and thicken my lashes.
Moisturize your lips
Irrespective of the type of lip colour you choose, you must always moisturize your lips first. You can even choose colourless lip gloss or a lip balm. It will help when applying your lip colours to apply smoothly. If you want, before moisturizing your lips, you can even use a nutritious scrub like brown/coconut sugar to scrub the dead skin on your lips. Now choose a lipstick colour that will complement your overall appearance.
