Makeup is a must essential to have in any girl’s life, but we still meet that simplest and purest form of females who have not entered into the world of cosmetics. They are those type of girls who find doing makeup a bit of a hassle where you have to get up a little early to get prim and ready with the help of makeup.
So, how do you start using makeup when you don’t know how to? Well, the answer is simple and little but technical as well. You see there are many tutorials on many social websites where you find such videos about makeup for first-timers, but the simplest way could be starting from one thing to another like going with lip gloss as a change and keep building your way up towards more major things.
But honestly speaking, makeup for beginners is quite a charm as well a bit of restraint on their mental peace. Those who are in their middle ages and mid-twenties and they have never applied makeup then they have to go through an ordeal to force themselves to apply makeup. And if the girl is young, then it is always exciting.
But those who don’t know anything about makeup should follow my article with undivided interest because we will be writing a beginner guide to make up for you all. So, let’s begin.

Many people have dedicated their lives and precious time to inform others about how to apply makeup. They give you free advice about products and also guide about how different ways of the application can lead to different looks while using the same product.
Millions of girls are getting benefit from it. The rate at which such videos are being made is so insanely fast that we almost encounter a new video with a new face and new product every single day. So if you are new to the world of makeup, open a few such tutorials, and you can learn load.
Plus, this is free. There is no fee, and you’re learning depends upon your pick. How quickly you grasp the idea of makeup and its application is dependent upon you so stay alert and sharp, and you will learn many things which you never paid any attention towards.
Learn From An Expert:
This method is slowly gaining success, but one must remember that this means heavy amount of fees because the experts from all major brands and makeup artists have launched different courses which will mean that they will be able to give you the insight of that brilliant mind but of course with a price. If anything comes free nowadays, it is free tutorials I guess (it is a joke).
But still learning from experts has its benefits which cannot be challenged by anyone. They have the most experience, and they have worked on millions of faces with different types and their faults and benefits. So, it is always a better option to learn from experts. But if you can afford heavy bills of fees per classes, then it is the spot you are looking for if you want to learn about the makeup and its application for the first time.

My favorite option is this and you must ask why? Because the damage is nothing and you will not be bound to time as well. You can buy the product from the store, and that’s it. That’s all the money you will be spending. I go with this option because you can focus entirely on one thing and try different things till you are satisfied with your hold on that product, and then you can move on to another one.
Makeup Basics For A Beginner:
How To Do Makeup?
This very question scares many girls who are doing it for the first time but trust me there is nothing to be afraid of. You will need only a few things the first time, but this will give you a clear idea about how makeup should be handled and how you are ought to do the makeup in the future.
Prepare Your Face:
your face is your canvass. How to treat your canvass explains about you as an artist. Like any canvass which must go through a simple layering before the paint is applied to it; the face must be prepped and be made ready for the application of makeup.
- First, clean the face with a good face wash, and moisturize it properly to avoid any dryness or oiling from getting released.
- Then you will apply primer of good quality because remember girls; the face is something not to be taken lightly, always prefer the best quality stuff and keep your face away from all sort of harms. Applying primer means that the moisture which you applied earlier will stay in its place throughout the makeup and the day too. Primer saves you from the cakey look and also from broken makeup lines.
This is the base layer of makeup. You will need to apply a functional layer of foundation as per your choice or according to the skin tone. This is not hard to find. You can go to any cosmetic store and ask them to give you a meter about skin tone to purchase a foundation; they will happily provide you with a chart. Select your desired color, and that’s it.
- Here you must remember that to apply foundation, always use a sponge and better a slightly damp sponge which will help you in merging the foundation in a better way and the layer won’t get disturbed the whole day.
- Also, you must keep the layer of foundation moderate. Even light as you are a newbie. The heavy base layer will look too odd for you.
Then you must thicken your eyebrows. Now I have noticed that many girls prefer to do the eyebrows first and then foundation while others do as I just said. Both ways are fine, and they are equally beneficial.
By thickening your eyebrows I mean treat your eyebrows as you want them to be. A little bit thickness does not hurt and can be adjusted, but once a thin eyebrow is fixedn it can not change till you get more hair.
If you have dark circles and other spots then it is the best way to cover them. Foundation can leave such marks behind, and it is the best way to adjust what is left. Now here is one tip.
- Eye concealer works like magic for the dark circles but that is another product while concealer for blemishes and other spots are different. So, don’t get confused and stay focused.
As the name itself says, it is to conceal the look. I mean the finalization.
Now turn towards eyes and decorate them with love and affection. An eye is a doorway to another world which is inside you, so you must apply the makeup carefully and wisely.
Your makeup gets highlighted because of your eyes and other elements of course, but eyes standout so, use light or dark eye shadows according to the occasion and help yourself.
Finalize your makeup of eye with eyeliner. It is applied according to your choice; some like dark and heavy lines while others go with subtle lines. So, whatever you choose, apply carefully otherwise you will have to redo then apply again, and in this attempt, other makeup setting gets upset as well which you do not want.
Blush on the cheek to make them rosy is so cute and must. The look of you having color on your skin is essential; otherwise, the blank foundation is not liked by anyone. To apply blush, use the right brush and go along the line of the cheek.
Highlighter is to highlight a few areas on the face like cheekbones and brow bones. This product of makeup gives your face a little light and shine which is must need.
Although contouring is an advanced level, it is a must inclusion. It gives your face the look of smartness and that edges which is dreamt by hundreds. It is applied on the cheekbones and nose area to make them stand out.
Lips are done at the end, but you must never forget them; they hold special importance as lips are what you can call as a statement of the makeup.
To apply gloss or lipstick is per your choice. Once you become an advanced player, then you would have also added lip liner and merging art of two lipsticks to make an amazing blend.
Setting Powder Or Spray:
The setting powder or spray is done in last to make your makeup last longer, and nothing moves from its place. A powder is slightly brushed while spray is also lightly sprayed.
It is rather the last item to be applied to give the complete look of eyes and to complement the makeup. Applied in lashes, they make the eyes look big and prominent.
If you follow the routine which is just explained above, then I am sure that you will become an expert in a small period of time.
Of course, it requires patience and stability of your hand and motivation, but once you get started and note the positive difference, it will cause a major change in your life then you will love it and do it again.
