Regardless of how many years of makeup experience you have, there is always room to improve your skills. Especially when it comes to basic makeup, which is supposed to emphasize natural beauty and be as invisible as possible.

Makeup artists have some tips on how to achieve light coverage and create a flawless look without being overloaded with cosmetics. OBOZ.UA tells about five main life hacks.

Start with a blank canvas

Before you start applying makeup, it is important to cleanse your skin properly. Start by washing your face with a mild cleanser and then use a moisturizer. For oily skin, a product with a light texture and no oils is suitable, and for dry skin, a denser product with nourishing ingredients is better. Also, choose a cream that matches the type of cosmetics you use. If you like oil-based cosmetics, use an oil-based moisturizer as well. If the products you use are water-based, then the cream should also be water-based. Mixing these two substances will reduce the durability of makeup.

Choose a foundation that matches your skin tone

One of the most important makeup tips is to choose the right foundation for your skin tone. When choosing a foundation shade, it's important to consider your skin type and the level of coverage you want. If you have oily skin, choose a foundation with a matte finish that will control shine. For dry skin, a moisturizing product with a wet finish is more suitable. If you're not sure about your skin tone, visit a cosmetics store and ask for professional advice.

Highlight your eyes

Eyes are probably the main focus of any makeup look. To create a basic look, start by applying neutral eyeshadow all over the eyelid and then apply a darker shade to the crease to add depth. Next, apply eyeliner to emphasize the shape of your eyes and apply mascara to define your lashes. Applying your eyeliner after your eye shadow ensures that it stays brighter and doesn't fade under the other product.

Don't forget about blush

Blush can instantly refresh your complexion and give it a healthy, youthful glow. When applying blush, smile, find the apples of your cheeks, and apply the product in circular motions. Choose a shade that complements your skin tone and don't be afraid to gradually increase the intensity until you achieve the desired result. For dry skin, a product with a creamy texture and a wet finish is better, while a powder texture is ideal for oily skin.

Finish your makeup with lipstick

The color of lipstick for basic makeup can be any. The main thing is that it matches your style and personality. If you want to create a light, natural look, choose a tinted lip balm or a nude shade. For a bolder look, try bright or dark lipstick. To shape your lips well, start by drawing a pencil outline to help prevent the color from spreading. Then apply lipstick and blot with a napkin to remove excess product. This will make your lip makeup truly long-lasting.
