As one of the makeup artists I’ve met told me, the first and most important part of applying makeup is creating a perfect canvas. In other words, creating a flawless face. *wink*. Once you’ve achieved it, it’ll be easier to do the look you have in mind.
The no. 1 dilemma of many girls out there (including me) is how to cover acne scars. Thanks to Juvel1977 for asking me to do a tutorial on this.
People have different styles in makeup so do things that work for you best okie? :-D But here’s the sequence I follow:
1) Cleanse and moisturize.
2) Apply a color corrector.
What is a color corrector? - Color correctors work to counteract specific flaws in facial complexions.
The ones I own are the Watercolors color corrector and Makeup Forever camouflage palette.
Green – counteracts redness so use this to cover any red spots in your face.
Lavender – is used for sallow skin, yellow or brownish bruises, or spots that appear dark on bronzed skin tones.
There are still some color correctors available but the above are the only ones I use currently.
4. Apply your foundation. Be careful in choosing the right shade for you. If your neck is darker than your face, choose one that matches the color of your neck.
5. You can conceal any imperfections that are still visible.
6. Apply face/loose face powder to set your foundation.
I hope you were able to learn some things on this post Juvel1977 or anyone who’s reading. Just shoot me an email if you have comments or questions.
