HookedUpon is here to solve your problem. Follow these quick and easy steps to cover those pesky blemishes and be the limelight of the party.
#1 Clean Up
Start by making sure your skin is clean and oil free. Wash your face with a face wash of your choice but your face wash must suit your skin-type. Get in the habit of cleaning your face after you come home from college or shopping spree.
Don’t be lazy and moisturize your face. Constantly washing your face can cause dryness. Based on your skin type find the most suitable moisturizer with sunscreen protection. Whether winter or summer, never leave home without applying proper sunscreen.
Have you ever seen painters applying primers to even out the color on walls or paintings? That is exactly what a primer does to your skin. If you have uneven skin, then buy a primer from good company and apply it.
#4 The Basic
Apply a light-weight foundation with a damp sponge. The foundation shade must be one shade lighter than your skin tone. This will help your Your foundation must be one shade lighter than your skin tone. Apply it on your face evenly with a little damp sponge. This helps to even your skin tone and make the spots less prominent.
#5 Conceal The Marks
Your concealer shade should be same as your foundation shade. If the concealer has a darker or lighter shade it will draw attention to the applied area. Opt for a liquid concealer. Water-based or oil-based concealer will easily blend with your make-up. With a concealer brush, pat gently on the spots you want to cover. While blending with the edges, take a sponge to tap softly so that it doesn’t leave any line.
#6 Brighten Skin
Let the make up dry and put on the face powder. I recommend you use a sponge or a brush and press on to your skin with care. Do not rub the brush. Rubbing will ruin the layer of concealer.
Following these simple steps, your skin will look as perfect as it can be. You will look confident and radiant. Now apply the blusher, eyeliner, lip gloss, mascara and you’re ready to rock the parties.
Don’t forget to wash your face after you come home from the party.
