The Basics of Makeup
Basic look: Apply a single base color to the entire lid. For extra definition, blend a deeper shade into the crease line.
Highlight the brow bone with a light shade. This gives the eyes a wide, open look.
Pale tones emphasize, while deep shades define.
Apply blush on the apples of your cheeks (the round part that forms when you smile).
Only add enough color to replenish the color that would form naturally
Makeup Primer
Purpose is to provide a smooth surface on which to apply makeup
Can also help keep your makeup in place
Best applied using fingers
Apply all over face or just chin, nose, and eyelids
Eyeliner is used to provide the illusion of a fuller lash line
Follow your lash line from the inside corner to the outside corner for a simple look
Used to darken eyelashes and make eyes appear more defined.
Close your eyes and start applying the mascara from the roots to the tips of the upper lash line neatly. Then, open your eyes and repeat until lashes are fully coated. Wait for a minute for them to dry, and similarly apply a second coat.
Know Your Undertones
Knowing your skin’s undertone can help you choose the makeup that will look the best on you.
Undertone - the color underneath the surface. You can have the same skin color as someone, but a different undertone.
Undertone categories:
Cool (pink, red or bluish undertones)
Warm (yellow or golden undertones)
Neutral (a mix of warm and cool undertones)
Before You Begin...
Purpose: To create an even complexion
Use a shade that matches your skin tone (or a shade lighter)
Apply large dots of the foundation to the central part of the face and blend outwards smoothly and evenly using fingertips or brush
Applied after foundation to provide additional coverage.
Use a yellow-based product under eyes to help counter-act the purple tones of dark circles.
For blemishes, apply to individual areas.
Loose Powder
Use a setting powder to hold your foundation and concealer in place
Apply powder to the entire face with a neutral or matching setting powder
Gather all supplies needed
Lay products in front of you in chronological order
Make sure all brushes and applicators are clean, dry, and in good condition
When Did People First Start Using Makeup?
Lip Liner
Lipstick/Lip Gloss
Start in the center of your lip, and blend the color outwards.
Be sure to apply the color as close to the edges of your lips as you can without overdoing it and going outside your lip line.
Knowing your face shape can help you to choose makeup shades and techniques that will bring out every positive aspect of your natural bone structure.
Makeup starts with the skin
Remove any old makeup
Wash face
Moisturize and apply lip balm
Eyeshadow to Make Your Eyes Pop
Choose shades that contrast with the tones in your eyes
Blue eyes - Bronze, copper and rich chocolate brown shades
Brown eyes - Greens, blues and purples
Green eyes - purple and gold shades
Hazel eyes - Greens, blues, purples, browns and golds
The first archeological records of clear makeup use come from Ancient Egyptian and Sumerian tombs dating as far back as around 3500 BC. They used natural ingredients to paint their faces, and even had specialized tools to apply their makeup.
Trace the pencil around the natural line of your lips with a liner that matches your lip color.
This works to even out the color and texture of your lips, making it easier to apply a gloss or lipstick later

Know Your Face Shape
The purpose of bronzer is to warm the face, as well as create shadows which can make the face appear slimmer.
Apply where the sun normally hits the face - forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin.
Finding Your Undertone
You have a “cool” undertone if:
• If the veins on your wrist are blue or purple
You have a “warm” undertone if:
• The veins on your wrist are slightly green or olive
You have a “neutral” undertone if:
• The veins on your wrist are blue-green
