Makeup is bigger than ever, so much that makeup artists are now making tonnes of money and have reached internet fame just for creating a stunning look that has ended up going viral. And so there’s no reason that you shouldn’t know all the important techniques that ensure you get the look you want. There are various things that definitely come into play when achieving what you want, like the environment that you’re in when you do it. The surroundings have to be right otherwise you won’t be in the right mood to create something beautiful. You would need the appropriate tools too.
Here’s all you need to know.
If you’ve ever tried to do your makeup in the dark, or even the dying light, you’ll know that while you think it’s working out well, the moment you go under the proper light, you begin to see all the imperfections and see the total misjudgement of colour and blending. So you always want to get your makeup right the first time without having to make huge corrections afterwards. Natural light will always be the best, but sometimes you won’t have that option. The next best thing is pure white light. Warm yellow lights aren’t good as they will cause you to get subtle tones and shades wrong as it isn’t showing up as well as it should.
You can’t put on your face if you have nothing to look into while you do it. A lot of girls nowadays tend to use the mirror built into their palette, and while there’s nothing wrong with this, it can get grubby pretty quickly from fallout and dust. So it’s always a good idea to have your own selected makeup mirror. Think about where you do your makeup usually, as most people opt for the bathroom because even when the sun goes down, the light in there is always a rather bright white. Then just have a look on sites like Drench.co.uk that offer you a whole bunch of options for you to look into.
You wouldn’t believe the difference a brush can make to your makeup game. You may be struggling to blend out your eyeshadow and assume that you’re just not very good at doing it – until you get a round blending brush and realise how much easier everything has become. So if you’re not too sure as to what you need, have a look at some of your favourite makeup artists on YouTube and see what they recommend. Of course, everyone is different and has their own preferences, but until you go out and have a whole selection to play with, you won’t know what you’re missing.
Now you know what you need to ensure you’ll always slay your makeup, there is no reason as to why you will find yourself struggling anymore. And remember, social media is your best friend for mastering the art of makeup.
