Nowadays, there are many famous celebrities and bloggers to be found on the social media that teach how to apply makeup or provide skincare recommendations, but I appreciate there might some beginners who don’t know the methods to apply makeup for a more natural look so have I written this blog to hopefully provide some handy tips for beginners to get started.
There is a general order which you should use products to achieve the most natural and beautiful look. If you’ve ever wondered whether you should apply concealer before or after foundation, you’ve come to the right place! Not sure how to apply makeup in the right order? Keep reading my following tips in order to learn the best order to apply face makeup, eye makeup, and lip colour etc.
步骤1洗臉 (Step 1 Wash your face )：
The first step in your skin care routine should be washing your face. If it’s not convenient to wash your face, you can use a wet facial wipe to cleanse your face. The reason is to gently wipe or wash off the dirt or excess oil it on your skin.
步骤2保养 (Step 2 Skincare routine ) :
化妆水 => 精华液 =>保养品 => 保湿乳液 => 保湿乳霜 => 化妆水
Once you’re done washing your face, then move onto toner and moisturiser to create a smooth base for makeup application. Remember to choose a moisturiser that’s formulated for your skin type.
Here are some great tips for finding the right moisturiser:
- If you have dry skin, get something richer which will absorb into your skin better.
- If you have oily skin, go with a light, oil-free moisturiser.
- If your skin feel tight then you might have what is called a condition of dehydration and you should go for a thick moisturiser and water boost serum to help hydrate your skin.
步骤3上日霜、隔离霜、妆前乳、防晒乳、CC, BB霜 (Step 3 Sunscreen Protection) ：
The third step is the most important and includes the use of a primer and sunscreen. Sunscreen will give your skin a protection from the sun light. This is an often overlooked area - by using the correct sun protection product you can reduce the signs of skin aging. Primer can help to give you an even canvas to work on, as it can help smooth lines. Primer can also help your makeup wear more evenly throughout the day. Choose a primer with a glowing finish if you have dry skin or a primer with a matte finish if you have oily skin. Regardless of which primer you pick, apply it all over your face or to targeted areas, depending on your skin’s specific concerns.
步骤4 粉底液、底妆类、粉饼、粉条、遮瑕产品 (Step 4 Foundation and Concealer) ：
Once you’re done with Step 3, then finish the cover up process by applying a right tone of concealer. Our face wouldn’t be complete without a little foundation! There are so many kinds of foundation out there, so choose one that suits your needs. For example, if you have oily skin, you may want to consider using a matte (non-shiny) finish foundation. On the other hand, if you have dry skin, a radiant finish foundation, might be a better option for you. Whichever foundation you choose, one of the best ways to apply it is with a makeup blender or your hands.
而一般化眼妆的步骤为：眉笔 > 眉粉 > 眼影 > 眼线 > 夹睫毛 > 睫毛膏
Done with your face? Now, it’s time to move on to applying eye makeup. Get your eyebrow pencil, eye shadow, eyeliner, and mascara ready because it’s a time to get started on your eye makeup. Nowadays, a big focus of makeup vloggers is talking about eyebrows and it seems the bigger is better! To do this, start by shaping and filling in your eyebrows with the correct eyebrow pencil. Then when applying eye shadow, follow this guide: First, dust colour onto your lids, then follow up with a crease colour, and finally, place a dab of highlighter along your brow bone. For a neutral eye makeup look for daytime and a shimmery eye makeup for night-time. I always found that it’s easiest to apply eyeliner before mascara but after eye shadow. I personally like to use a very fine liquid eyeliner. The final step in your eye makeup application routine should be mascara!
腮红,修容粉,阴影粉和蜜粉 (Step 5 Bronzer, Blush and highlighter application ):
Complete with a radiant glow on or a rosy tone by applying a little bronzer or blush, and/or highlighter. As far as bronzer and highlighter go, put them on areas where the sun would naturally hit your face to achieve a natural look (e.g. on forehead, nose, cheeks and chin). When it comes to blush, apply some to the apples of your cheeks and remember to smile while doing so!
最后步骤是口红，唇笔，唇彩 ( Step 6 Lipliner, lipstick or lip gloss application )：
而一般来说唇彩的步骤为：护唇类产品 > 唇笔 > 唇膏 > 唇蜜
Before you apply lipstick, you should consider lining your lips—this can help prevent colour from bleeding out or feathering. Choose a lip liner that’s the same shade as your lipstick and outline the natural line of your lips to help make your pout look fuller. You can also colour in your lips with liner before applying the lipstick to help create a smooth base.
Once you’ve prepped your lips with liner, go ahead and swipe on your lipstick shade of choice. With so many different colours and formulas available in the market, the possibilities are basically endless and you should choose the colour that you are most comfortable in! Whether you opt for something shimmery, matte or something shiny it is all down to your personal preference.
Finally! You’ve officially finished all the steps in your makeup routine. I would recommend helping set your look by spraying some makeup settling spray so that your makeup lasts longer throughout the day!
