Who wouldn’t want to have an angelic, pure face like a baby? In some countries like Korea and Thailand, this ‘Baby Face’ makeup is quite popular. It is essentially makeup that makes young women’s faces look like that of a cherubic baby. It is a very easy makeup to put on and requires very few ingredients. Those who do not like spending hours in front of the mirror putting on layers of makeup would find this ideal.
To find out how to do your Baby Face makeup, check out this post!
First of all, you need to moisturize your face. The desired complexion is supposed to be dewy but matte. So put your concealer on parts of your face that show signs of aging. Use a concealer on blemishes, acne or puffiness under the cheeks. Blend the concealer with the rest of the face.
You usually put foundation all over your face in all kinds of makeup. But not in this one. You want to avoid a cakey look, so dot your foundation on areas of your face that need it the most. Blend it using your fingers. In fact, it is better to use a CC cream instead of foundation or BB cream. This helps you capture the dewy look of a baby. Blend from the center of the face towards the outer edges.

Now that you have the base in place, it is time to seal it with a powder. The powder not only helps achieve the matte look, but also keeps the makeup in place. If you don’t want to dull the shininess of the base with a powder, apply the powder along your jaw line and edge of the forehead. This will prevent your hair from sticking to your face.
Babies have pinkish and lavender cheeks that a bronzer or a regular blush cannot capture. However, a lavender tinted blush can capture its essence. If you can find a lavender blush, dot the powder on your cheekbones. Now using your brush, blend the blush in straight strokes from the center towards the ear. You must remember that the blush should be barely there. Otherwise you would look like an asphyxiated blue baby.
You must know that babies hardly ever have straight, thin brows. But for Baby Face makeup, you also do not want a bushy, unkempt brow. So here is the trick – if you have thin, well tended eyebrows, use mascara on your eyebrows to fluff them up a little. Then use a pencil of the same color to draw around the border of the eyebrows to make it appear thicker. If you already have thick brows, use an eyebrow comb to arrange your eyebrows in a neat shape. The arch of the eyebrow in Baby Face makeup should not be more or less straight and must not be too long. So use your tools to make your eyebrow appear as natural as possible.
You do not use any eyeliner in Baby Face makeup because kids hardly ever have thick eyelashes. But to give your tired eyelids a lift, you can use eyeshadow. Use a natural eyeshadow, a color that best suits your skin color. A pink shimmer eyeshadow adds an angelic touch to the face. This is for the eyelid. For under the eye, use tiny dots of brown eyeshadow on the outer edge of the eye and blend. On the inner edge, a tiny dab of champagne glitter looks nice.

If you regularly moisturize your lips, just a coat of Baby Lips will do. But if you defect on this moisturizing routine regularly, you need to scrub the flaky skin first. Apply a pink or orange lip tint on your scrubbed bare lips.
