Applying Eye shadow
There are two ways to apply eye shadow that is, " Rounded" and "winged" . You can experment which kind of eye shadow sutable to you. well majority of women are tend to use "rounded" eye shadow. If the space between eyebrow and eye is less then you can go for "winged" eye shadow.
One is Dark shadow, another is of Medium Shadow and Highlight.
Step - 1 Apply the medium shadow first. Use an good kind of brush while applying any kind of make up You should always make sure to blend your make up well to avoid that solid lines which looks ugly. And make sure all the edges are feathered evenly.
Step-2 Apply the dark shade to the eye lid area. It is best to start in the middle of the eye lid and work out towards the outside, cover the entire lid. Blend the crease area in well
Step-3 Apply first coat of high lighter to brow bone.
How to Apply Eye liner?
Position your lining device. Hold the lining device as you do a pen or pencil. Turn your hand so the applicator tip is parallel to your eyelid.
Step-1. Using an eyeliner pencil, run the pencil above the upper eyelid lashes right close to the lash line. At first it is best to only line directly above where the lashes are growing, do not extend your line too close to the inner corner of the eye, it might not look right. You can play with extending the liner line later when you feel a little more comfortable with eye makeup.
Step-2. When you have finished lining, lightly smudge the line you just drew. Mostly pencils have a foam rubber smugger on one end. Smudging softens some of the harshness the line may have, in other words, blend the line in a little so it doesn't look like a distinct line. A Q-tip works just as well.
Step-3. After you line and smudge, use a small pointy brush and run a coat of the dark eye shadow over the eyeliner. Do this if the line looks like it stands out too much, it softens it and is a "must do" step for liquid liner.
How to Apply Mascara?
Step-1. Use black-brown mascara and a curved brush. You can control the application better using the curvy part of the brush tip and the brush tip will always stay away from the eye socket area that we just finished applying shadow to. Apply mascara 2 or 3 times throughout the makeup session, letting each coat dry before applying the next coat.
Step-2 . This first coat of mascara is a light coat. Pull the mascara wand from the tube and lightly wipe the wand across a tissue to remove some of the excess mascara. Now either throw that tissue out or put it at a distance from your work area. Also check your fingers for stray mascara. Mascara can be really messy and can cause you a lot of aggravation, so know where every little bit is at all times!
Step-3 . There are several methods regarding how much mascara each lash receives. This is the vertical application, from lash root to lash tip. One method coats the entire lash from root to tip. Sometimes this method may not be desirable. Another method is to not start the wand right at the lash roots, but start about a quarter of the way up from the lash roots and mascara to the tips. The method which you should preferably use, should coat the full length of each lash hair. With this method you want to start at the lash roots and as the lash brush travels up the lash hairs you want to kin da wiggle the brush back and forth just a little. The wiggling gets the mascara fully around each hair.
Step-4 . Right after the first coat of mascara is applied, put the wand back into the mascara tube, pick up a lash comb or an old cleaned off mascara wand and run the bristles carefully through the still wet lashes. This will separate them nicely. You will probably need to do this more than once to get the hair separated.
How to Apply Blush
Step 1 - First, throw away the brush that comes in the compact; it's too stiff and small to create a natural look. Use a good blush brush.
Step 2 - Grin like a fool into the mirror, to see where the apple of your cheek appears.
Step 3 - Dip your blush brush into the powder, shake off the excess, and brush it lightly over the apple of the cheek, moving toward the ear, with short, up-and-down vertical movements.
Step 4 - Then blend it in with one soft horizontal stroke on top of the vertical strokes, and blot a tissue on top to remove the excess, or cover lightly with powder.
Step 5 - If you're feeling particularly washed out, you can brush a light stroke of blush across your forehead up by your hairline or just above the brows where the sun would hit your face. (But don't overdo it.)
How to apply makeup powder?
Step 1 - If you use loose powder, dip your powder brush into the powder. Shake or tissue off the excess.
Step 2 - Dust the face lightly in upward strokes.
Step 3 - Wipe the brush on a tissue, and then use it to remove excess powder from your face. Apply pressed powder with a circular velour or sponge in light, upward strokes. Your velour or sponge won't last as long as powder. If your applicator looks shiny and caked, or if hardly any powder comes off on your face when you glide the velour or sponge across, it's time to wash it or get a new supply. Otherwise, the oils from your skin will build up on the powder to create a shiny, hardened film. In that case, scrape off the surface with a knife, and the powder will be as good as new.
