There’s always an occasion for a professional makeup tutorial. Whether it is for a special event, an important business appointment or a date, every woman of any age wants to look her best and seeks a professional makeup tutorial.
Starting with the basics, first make sure you have all the essentials, a concealer, foundation, eyeshadow, lipgloss, mascara etc. You don’t need to break the bank, just get what you can afford.
Follow the professional make-up artist’s advice. Begin with a clean face, apply a toner and moisturizer. Use a moisturizer regardless your skin type, especially before summer make-up, use one with sunscreen, avoiding the eye area. For more natural summer make-up, use a tinted moisturizer instead.
As the professional makeup artists do, wait a few minutes after cleaning your skin before putting it on. Use a foundation primer all over your face and neck, to smooth your skin and allow the makeup to last longer. For a natural look, summer or glamorous makeup, follow the same steps for the application of the concealer and foundation.
Your concealer must be a tone lighter than your skin, apply it under your eyes. On the problem areas you need to conceal the redness or discoloration. Pat it lightly to blend. Then apply your foundation, remember it should not add color to your skin. For summer, make sure your foundation matches your tanned skin, for better results use a sheer foundation. Start at the hairline work your way down to your neck, and around the eye area. A foundation brush will give you a professional makeup result. Use illuminator to give your skin a natural, summer makeup look.
To give your eyes a professional look use two shades of eyeshadow. First apply a natural shade on the area from lashes to eyebrow, and then a medium shade on the lower lid. For a natural look use natural tones, earthy shades. Use the lighter eyeshadow on the eyelid and light brown shades on the corners. Pastel shades such as golden-green, or mango green are great choices for summer makeup. For smokey eyes use dark shades and apply a third darker shade along the lash line to the outer corner of the eye. Use a fluff brush to blend in the shades. Lastly, apply eyeliner towards the outside corner, with gentle strokes along the lash line. For a professional summer makeup look, use sheer skin enhancer on your eyes, cheeks and d?colletage for a bright and natural glow.
If you have an eyelash curler use it before the mascara. For a natural look you may not need to apply any mascara. Using the tip of the wand apply the mascara to the ends of your lashes in an upward direction.
Finish off with a bronzer on cheekbones and chin to give yourself a beautiful summer makeup, or a blush for natural makeup. Your lipstick should follow the natural lip line. Apply lipstick or gloss with a brush.
To complete your professional makeup use pressed powder to lightly powder your face, nose and under the eyes. Whether you want a natural look, summer makeup, or glamorous one you follow the same steps for the application of the concealer and foundation but the eyeshadow must be chosen appropriately. Some professional tutorial advice; to go from daytime makeup into something more glamorous for evening, just add more blush, black eyeliner for more dramatic eyes. Finally, go for a classic red lipstick.
Keep in mind the difference between day makeup, night makeup, and special occasions. Day makeup is light and tinted with neutral colors. Night makeup has stronger colors. Special occasions take special items like false eyelashes, liquid liners, and highlighting under the eyes for professional makeup tutorials especially around holidays and celebrations.
