Everyone has their own rituals for putting their face on, and layering up your war paint is vitally important. By applying your make-up in the following order, you’re guaranteed to look your best whatever the occasion and slay all night long!
Moisturiser, Revitalise, Tantalise!
Step one is really a step zero, because it isn’t *technically* makeup. I’m talking about moisturiser.
Looking after your skin is super important because it gives you that natural glowy base to work with and helps prevent dry skin and irritation.
Why not have a proper pamper night with this girls night in kit from L’oreal in preparation for your big night out— it’s always nice to treat yourself, and treat your skin!
We’ve Got You Covered
Everyone has their favourite concealer, that one perfect tone or colour that just magics any blemishes away without a trace. Concealer is your layer one for makeup, and is totally versatile.
Using concealer that matches your skin tone can hide any blemishes for a flawless finish.
Using a shade or two lighter than your natural skin tone to conceal dark circles can help brighten the area under your eyes, whereas using darker tones to contour helps add dimension to your face.
Lay The Foundations
Next up is foundation. If you prefer a liquid foundation you can apply this before the concealer, but for mineral, powder based foundation, it’s better to start with concealer and build on top of that.
With this Pur bestsellers kit you get powder foundation (with built in sun protection), correcting primer to give a flawless finish, and a bit of glow powder to ensure that your skin stays luminescent.
The mascara and makeup brush are a nice added bonus, too!
Stop, You’re Making Me Blush
Get that final face glow up with some bronzer, highlighter or blush. These items are made to add a final flourish to your perfect complexion, and should be used sparingly.
The outer sides of your forehead, your hairline, and your cheekbones are classic targets for bronzer, but take time to consider your face shape and what will work best for you before applying at random.
Give Them The Eyes
A bit of shadow, a dab of eyeliner, and some lash volumising mascara and we’re almost good to go.
