Often we check out for the makeup details of our favourite celebrities that they have sported on any red carpet event. While they hire well known professionals to give their stunning looks, we can try our hands on this type of look too. Some amateur makeup artists sometimes create magic with their brushes just like any Pro.
They have practised and mastered themselves in the art of makeup. While many days of practice and many sessions of trial have made them experts of the art, there are certain basic rules that have to be followed.
Rules Of Professional Makeup
Invest On Tools
How you will fare on the art of makeup will largely depend on the choice of your applicators like brushes. Spend some bucks on good quality makeup brushes. It will make a lot of difference to the way you put makeup. You need quite a number of brushes for your kit like a foundation brush, a concealer brush, a blush brush, a flat eye shadow brush, a fluffy powder brush, a blending brush, a precision angle brush and a lip brush.
MAC makeup brushes are very good. You also need an eye lash curler like Shu Umera. Keep yourself handy with a tweezers.
Mixing and matching for a perfect coverage is the ideal way to get it right. Use a satiny foundation mostly and mix it up with a primer for a long even coverage. Cream foundation can cake up or look too heavy, so it is advisable to use a liquid one.
The primer will make it stay for a long time without looking cakey or shiny and blending out evenly into skin. Often mixing 2 different shades of foundation can give the ideal shade for your complexion. Don’t shy away to try that.
Identify And Cover Imperfections
This is one of the most important things. Check yourself closely in the mirror and look out for unevenness or pigmentation. A concealer kit is required to cover up these flaws. Remember to again mix the colours of the kit to get it perfect and blend with a brush so that it looks naturally even.
Fix Your Features
We sometimes look into glossy magazines and get shocked by images of celebrities without makeup. Learn this magic of total transformation by fixing features like a very long nose, too round face or very thin lips with the stroke of some brushes.
The art of contouring will make you photo perfect and you will get chiselled features.
Know And Prep Skin
It is very important to identify your skin type and prepare it accordingly. A dry dehydrated skin is not suitable for a perfect base. Hydrate the skin with a moisturizer suitable for your skin. This will enable the foundation to blend smoothly and give a dewy finish to your makeup.
Learn the Colour Tricks
Remember that opposite colours always flatter your features. If you have green eyes try for some colours like purple or wine to enhance them.
You can use a peach shadow to brighten blue eyes. For warm complexions try to use berry toned colours for an evening out.
Must Have Products
Some products can transform your look instantly and make you dazzle like any star. You need a list of products to carry always like a lip plumper, a bronzer, a highlighter, brow gel and a voluminising mascara.Try to follow these professional makeup rules and you can never go wrong with your looks.
