Knowing the right makeup for your skin type is really important if you want to have a successful makeup look.
If you nail that, you can pretty much count on your look staying fresh and flawless until you’re ready for a thorough makeup removal and cleanse.
When it comes to normal skin types, your biggest concerns might be a bit of oiliness on your forehead, nose and chin (your T-zone), some or barely visible pores, and maybe even some dryness on your cheeks.
Below is a guide to applying makeup for a normal skin type:
1. Start with a primer
No matter your skin type or concern, this is a must after cleansing and moisturising. Not only can your primer create a smooth canvas for the foundation to come, but if you pick the right formula, it can help tackle issues that can compromise that flawless finish.
2. Apply your foundation
There are two things you need to consider with your foundation: 1) you’ve got the shade right, so that it matches your skin tone perfectly, and 2) you’re using the right formulation for your skin type.
3. Conceal your under-eyes
If you are putting in the effort to create a flawless makeup base, you have to conceal any hints of darkness under your eyes and illuminate the area. Use a concealer the same shade as your foundation and apply it in an upside-down triangle (so that the base of your triangle is the length of your under-eye, and the tip is on your cheekbone). Blend the formulation in, so you can’t see the ‘edges’ of your triangle.
4. Set your foundation
To ensure you’ve got your T-zone under control, use a loose powder brush and lightly dust some translucent powder across your forehead, down your nose, and on your chin. This will help minimize any shine that usually develops during the day.
