My Makeup Routine
Here's how I apply makeup
I started wearing makeup when I was a teenager. I began by blending eyeshadows together, applying eyeliner, and applying red lipstick. I would apply gold eyeshadow with dark eyeliner to my eyes. I always used foundation or concealer. When I was in high school, this was my look. As I got older, I began experimenting with makeup tools like primer, foundation, concealer, brow pencil, eyeliner, mascara, brushes, sponges, etc. Whenever I wear makeup, I start by washing my face with water and then wiping it with a towel. I then apply professional makeup hydra touch primer (NYX). After applying the primer, I apply the foundation to my face. Currently, I am using the Maybelline Dewy and Smooth foundation. To apply the foundation, I use a sponge. Most recently, I use an orange sponge. As soon as I apply the foundation to my face, it dries pretty quickly when blending into my complexion. I then use the concealer (NYX) professional makeup counter. My first application is under my eyes, above my eyebrows, and around my side and forehead. All of these areas are blended together. After I've done that, I apply my NYX professional makeup brow tint pen to my eyebrows. I determine which colour of eyeshadow to use. I have a large makeup eyeshadow palette with a variety of colours. In my everyday look, I usually use dark brown eyeshadow blended with a bit of gold. I apply it over the top of my eyes. My next step is to apply my smokey gel pencil eyeliner to the top and bottom of my eyelids. I then put on my fake eyelashes. The first time I used fake eyelashes was in 2018, and now I'm used to applying them on. Before applying the fake eyelashes, I apply primer to my eyelashes. I apply the mood-struck epic lash primer to my eyelashes. Before applying the eyelash glue, I apply a small amount of eye primer. I also apply black Cover Girl mascara to my eyelashes. After applying primer and mascara, I applied my kiss strip lash eyelash glue to the fake eyelashes. Then I let it dry for a few seconds and apply one of the eyelashes to the upper part of my eyelid, pressing and holding it in place. Then I apply the other eyelash to the other upper eyelid. Following that, I apply my black cover girl mascara to both of my eyelashes again. On my lips, I apply a dark matte purple lipstick by NYX. For the final step, I spray the NYX setting spray all over my face after applying my makeup. I always apply my makeup this way when I'm going out to parties and events. Although wearing makeup is a pleasure, removing it afterwards feels just as pleasant. What do I do to clean my face after wearing makeup? First, I remove my false lashes and store them away, then I use my Neutrogena cleaning wipes and wash my right cheek and eye area. With another wipe, I wipe the left side of my face. The next step is to lather up with a face cleanser called a hydro cleansing gel. When using the cleanser, I make sure I rub it all over my face and get all the spots and then use lukewarm water to wash it off. I then pat my face dry with a face towel. In terms of makeup, I am not a professional makeup artist, however, experimenting with makeup over the years taught me a few things. This is just my method for applying makeup.
