Makeup is an indispensable part of our daily life, because women use make-up to show their femininity and improve their emotions by increasing the beauty of their appearance, especially during this period when many women suffer from depression.
So, in order to help us and how to help you prepare your skin for makeup, we offer you the following steps:
Apply concealer to help cover uneven skin tone caused by blemishes or dark circles.
Use a concealer brush or a fingertip to apply it to the lower eyelid, red spots, or acne and dark spots.
Apply a layer of foundation to help you achieve smooth skin tone and blend the natural skin tone and hidden area.
Use a foundation brush to apply it all over your face and neck, the foundation should be the same shade as your natural skin tone, and your skin tone should not be darker or lighter than the skin tone.
Set your foundation
This step is optional, but if you want to stick with makeup, you can use makeup powder to fix foundation and concealer. Use a large soft brush to cover your entire face with neutral or matching setting powder.
Use a pastel cream for the face, the inner corners of the eyes, under the eyebrows, the center of the curved lips, and the sides of the bones to add radiance. This will add shine and radiance to your face.
Apply a highlighting cream or highlighter in three places – on your cheekbones, under your eyebrows, and on your forehead – to get good lighting.
Add depth to your face by sculpting the face. This area is usually carved under the bone on either side of the nose, as this will make your face appear longer and thinner.
Use a large brush to apply a little blush to the round part of the cheek, do not apply too much blush, just apply enough to complement the natural color.
Empty your eyebrows
Fill in your eyebrows as this is an optional step because it depends on the density of the eyebrow hair, but it is recommended for those with thin or light eyebrows.
Tips before applying makeup
It is very important that you prepare your skin well before applying makeup.
Our first advice to you above all is to determine your skin type in order to choose products well.
The other thing that you should know is that makeup highlights the beauty of your features and cannot hide fatigue, dryness, or any other problem. Therefore, it is very important to follow a good skin care routine, especially cleansing, moisturizing and protecting.
Exfoliating is also crucial here, to get rid of any build-up deposits or dead skin cells.

The best face mask before applying makeup
Masks and masks are countless, whether natural or combined. If you are used to combination masks, we recommend that you always choose one that gives you a glow. And if you want the ingredients of your face mask to be natural and fast for a great result before makeup, you can choose from a mask of almond oil and shea butter, for example, or milk and coconut. Our favorite mask is avocado, yogurt and olive oil. Avocado, yogurt and olive oil face mask are best before make-up; This is because it contains a high percentage of hydration and nutrition. Mix a mashed avocado with one tablespoon of olive oil and another one of yogurt. Apply the mixture all over the skin for 20 to 25 minutes, then wash with cold water.
