If you’re one of those people who just doesn’t usually wear makeup, it can be hard to know where to start. Let’s say you’ve got a new job where all your coworkers wear makeup, or maybe you’ve started dating again, or maybe you just want to update your look. The internet is inundated with beauty gurus and makeup reviewers, all of them telling you different things. Getting started can be overwhelming. Here’s three simple makeup tricks for people who don’t usually wear makeup.
Always start with a clean face and then apply natural face moisturizer for dry skin or your skin type, to protect your skin and provide a smooth canvas for your makeup. Go with something relatively lightweight and ideally with some sunblock in it to protect you from UV rays. Never skip this step: it will make your look last longer and keep your skin healthy and moisturized.
It’s always better to go simple and timeless rather than trendy with your makeup choices. Pick one feature you especially want to highlight. Blush or bronzer will accentuate your amazing bone structure. Liner, mascara and eyeshadow will draw attention to your eyes. A bold lip color will highlight a lovely smile. So pick one or two and keep it simple, especially if you’re just starting out.
Always Wash Up
No matter what makeup look you go for, always be sure to wash any and all products off your face at the end of the day. This will help protect you from breakouts and make it possible for you to keep wearing makeup as needed. Remember, makeup is supposed to be a fun way to express yourself. Start simple and experiment with what you like. Find out what gives you confidence and makes you feel good about yourself.
