First of all wash
your face, pat dry and apply toner
and moisturizer. After a few minutes when everything`s absorbed,
put on a makeup base if you like it (I don`t do that myself as
is good enough and doesn`t burden your skin too much!), then foundation.
You should choose
color which is similar to your skin tone. Don`t try and get something
too white as it would look scary! For Asian skin tone it`s always
good to use foundation and powder with a yellow undertone. Don`t
ever try something with a rosy tone! You can use a sponge, or
just your fingers to spread your foundation, from top to bottom,
outward strokes. Don`t put on too much.
Then apply concealer
to flaws that you want to hide. Choose a color that is a bit darker
than your foundation, except when you need to hide under eye circles
use a slightly lighter or the same color as the foundation.Then
use a brush (or a sponge if you like) to put on powder on your
face. For foundation and powder
don`t forget the eye area. Then brush away excess powder.
Use a light eyeshadow
to spread all over your upper eye lid. Then a darker one on the
crease and a shimmer one just below your brows, where it archs
down. To enhance the effect you can even put on a darker color
about one-third to the end of your crease.
Then apply eye
liner if you wish. Usually only to the one-third end just
above your lashes is enough. Or you can draw a full line just
above your upper lashes. Use black or brown. Then curl your lashes
and apply mascara,
in a zig-zag motion. Then use a brow
pencil or brush with brow color to fill in your brows and
For your lips:
balm first. Then use a lip
pencil matching your lipstick color to define your lip line.
You can always correct the shape of your lips with the help of
foundation and lip pencil but don`t over-do it. Then fill the
entire lips using the lip pencil if you need a long lasting effect.
Then apply lipstick. You can put on lipgloss
afterwards if you like.
The last thing is
to put on blush.
Use a brush to sweep the blush from your cheek bone diagonally
upwards to the side of your cheek. Blush should start inline with
the iris of your eye and out and up.
So there you are, it`s
