Makeup is such an exciting and creative way of enhancing your beauty. You will start using makeup at some point, and it might be challenging to use the products and steps to build a routine.
If you are a beginner in this makeup game, then here are a few steps and essential products that you can use to build your own makeup routine for everyday purposes.
Primer for healthy-looking skin!
Many might skip this step, but it is essential for a makeup routine. Try a primer that blends in your skin naturally like Ilana’s Golden hour primer, the best makeup primer for glowing skin. It is the best face shimmer highlighter too!
Face primers are a beauty must-have because they help you produce a smooth and even base so you can easily apply your face makeup products. Makeup primers also extend the life of your makeup by ensuring that the various beauty products you add on top do not budge, smear, or fade away during the day. Often, based on the type of skin you have and what you are looking for, there are many different primers to pick, from dewy primers that provide a natural-looking glow to color correcting primers that wipe out redness.
Choose a foundation that does it all!
When choosing a foundation, you must go for a foundation with SPF for sensitive skin. It ensures no breakouts and no skin damage from the sun. Usually, when you begin with makeup, the skin takes time to adapt to it, so choose a foundation that is light, smooth and is organic. Remember your makeup stays on your skin for a long time, so choose every product mindfully and the products that are not harsh on any type of skin.
A concealer to hide tired skin!
Use a concealer to easily conceal blemishes and undereye circles on days when your complexion needs a little additional help, and you need to cover your blemishes and under eye circles. Look for a mild formula that does not leave your skin feeling oily or thick. For example, you can use Ilana’s soft blur concealer plus foundation. It is a two-in-one product that helps make your skin look even-toned.
Some color for your skin!
Blushes are another must-have makeup item for bringing color back to your face. Your face may appear flat and monotonous after applying your basic makeup items. Applying blush moderately on your cheeks gives your skin a natural flush and improves your complexion. We recommend investing in a lip cheek tint from Ilana when making a personalized cosmetic kit, so you don't invest too much money in buying separately for your lips and cheeks.
As time goes by you will be able to understand what suits better for your skin, what is a must and what you don’t need for your skin in your makeup bag. Till then hope this article helps you in building your first routine!
