The perfect face of makeup should look easy, effortless, as if you #wokeuplikethis. But all you ladies who binge-watch makeup tutorials as much as you do Friends know that 'effortless' takes a whole lot of effort. Sure, it's not rocket science, but much like any science, makeup follows a divine order. Here's our fool-proof guide to layering makeup right with some of the best beauty goods in the biz'.
Prime Time
NYX Professional Makeup Hydra Touch Primer
4/5
Apply a pea-sized amount of primer along the centre of your face, and gently massage it outward for even application.
1. First Base
4.4/5
For a bump-free base, use a beauty blending sponge and don't forget your neck and lids. If you have oily skin, go oil-free.
2. Run for Cover!
4.3/5
Your body temperature slightly changes the concealer's texture and colour, so give it a minute or two to settle before you blend it in and set it with powder.
3. Powder Please
4.5/5
To prevent it from looking cakey, apply powder with a big, fluffy brush instead of a powder puff. Oily skin types should go for something talc-based.
4. Smile and Swirl
4.7/5
Whether you're applying it straight or angularly, make sure to always blend both ends so you can't see where the color starts.
5. Bronze it, Baby!
3.9/5
Apply bronzer where the sun would normally hit your face: forehead, the bridge of your nose, temples, cheeks and chin.
6. Lip Service
4/5
Use lip liner to prevent bleeding before applying lipstick. To make it last longer, pack on powder before applying a second layer.
7. Ready, Set, Go
3.8/5
Hold this face primer at arm's length, spritz over your face and wait for it to dry. Whatever you do, don't rub it in!
A. Put a Lid on It
4/5
Work eye primer into the fine lines on your lids so that makeup doesn't settle in in the creases.
B. Shadow Play
3.9/5
To amp up color on a bright, matte eyeshadow, use white eyeliner to make a thick band over your lid before you pack it on.
C. Line Dancing
4.2/5
To make sure your eyeliner doesn't budge through the day, go over it with eyeshadow of the same color.
D. Flutter so Fly
4.2/5
To avoid gloop and clumps, gently roll the tip of your mascara wand over tissue. Then wiggle the wand over your lashes for a thick, wispy finish.
E. High Brow
4.3/5
When you're filling in your brows, make sure to create defining lines with a pencil before filling them in, and work extra product out with a brush after.
