Written by Chaitra Krishnan, MA (Journalism & Mass Communication)  • 

We’re all beautiful with or without makeup. Having said that, the point of makeup is to enhance your facial features and add glow to them. Not all of us know how to apply makeup the right way even today (yes, that’s right!) despite the common belief that all girls have makeup on, all the time. The experience as a 5-year-old trying to look like a celebrity by making use of your mother’s makeup kit isn’t really going to help here. This is why we’ve got you five amazing tutorials that will help you learn how to apply makeup like a professional.

As you watch these videos, you can follow the makeup steps sitting in front of a mirror and practice it whenever you get time. Just in a couple of days, you’ll be able to wear makeup like a star, without taking the wallet-burning trip to the salon. This way, you’ll save tonnes of money and you’ll be able to apply makeup whenever you want and from wherever you want. Also, once you feel that you’re good at it, you can start experimenting with your looks and break the rules. But first, you’ve got to learn the rules. Now, let’s get into the videos, right?

1. Simple Everyday Makeup


If you’re the kind of person who likes to apply makeup every day but doesn’t want it to be too loud, you can go for the natural makeup look. It gives your face a subtle glow and covers up the spots and lines that you don’t want to flaunt. Also, nobody has a lot of time in hand when they have to leave for work or college early in the morning. But, you also don’t want to look like you rolled right out of your bed, which is why a speedy everyday makeup routine will be your best secret weapon at disposal.

Before you start with your natural makeup, remember to clean your face thoroughly, moisturize, tone, and use a good sunscreen. No matter how well your makeup can cover your skin, it’s always vulnerable to harmful environmental factors like pollution and sun exposure. Also, by the end of the day, do not forget to remove your makeup no matter how light it is. This is a GOLDEN RULE that you have to follow if you want to keep your skin healthy. Makeup looks better on healthy skin on any given day!

2. Applying Foundation


A foundation is named so because it’s actually the base of your makeup. All the chisel and artwork goes above the foundation which is why it’s very important to pay attention while choosing and applying your foundation. If the “foundation” isn’t right, it’s going to show on your face. Remember to get a foundation that suits your skin tone because trying to look tan by using a darker foundation and the efforts to make your skin lighter with a whitish foundation is a big NO NO!

In this video, you will learn that the foundation doesn’t need full coverage every time you put makeup on. This is quite against the popular belief but it works like a charm!

3. Learn Contouring


Contouring stands on the higher end of the makeup. Even for those who know how to apply the basic makeup pretty well, contouring can be quite challenging. Even though it has been around for many years, thanks to Kim Kardashian for making it as popular as it is, today.

You might wonder, why do we need contouring? Why can’t we just do the simple makeup and skip the hard work? In simple words, contouring creates a dimension in your face and it makes your facial features like nose, forehead, cheekbones, jawline, and chin look sharper. This helps you have a more attractive face during events when you need to pop some eyes.

4. Filling In The Eyebrows


If there’s any makeup trend that has been rocking the show these days, we’ve got to give it to the perfectly filled, thick eyebrows. Sadly, not everyone who holds an eyebrow pencil or a brush with an eyebrow palette knows how to use it correctly. As a result, they end up looking like a crossbreed between a human and a cartoon.

A well-done pair of eyebrows can completely change your look. At the same time, badly done eyebrows can ruin your entire look. In this video, you’ll learn how to fill in your eyebrows the right way.

5. Smokey Eyes


Eye shadows are an impeccable part of makeup be it light makeup or loud makeup. They define your eyes so well that you can shoot down hearts with them. This is especially true in the case of smokey eye makeup. It gives you a very sensual yet bold look. But learning how to apply smokey eyes without looking like a panda can be quite tricky. This video is going to help you get it right.

Makeup is easy and not as expensive as you think if you know how to crack a few codes. With the help of these videos, we hope that you’ll be able to rock your personal best in the makeup game.
