Since my early teens I’ve always been fascinated with makeup application. Unfortunately for me my parents were never kind enough to purchase me any at that age.
It wasn’t until I was quite a few years older that I was able to purchase some myself. Even then I had to hide the fact from my parents. I was always afraid that they would disapprove.
Little did I know how encouraging they are though – nowadays they have no problems with my makeup obsession.
Ever since I first got my hands on my first makeup toolkit, I’ve tried my best to perfect my routine, and come up with one that I think anyone can use effectively.
There are many different stages to applying makeup. To begin with you have to moisturise and use a few products that are beneficial to your skin. Next you have to prime, then lay your foundation, then apply the your makeup (and there are so many different types!). After all of that, you need to set it all in place, either with some powder or a spray.
When putting it like this, it’s easy to see why many women find applying makeup such a tiresome chore. Granted it does take quite a long time, but over the years I’ve discovered quite a few different hacks that make the whole job a hell of a lot quicker.
One of them involves using probably my favourite makeup item, primer. As I mentioned before, this should be used at the start of your daily regime.
The great thing about them is that a lot of them are water based, and have a multitude of hydrating properties. Using those that have this means you can skip the pre-priming moisturising step! Pretty handy.
On top of that a lot of them will make your skin glow and help keep your makeup set in place. Occasionally I will try one so good that it means I can get away with not using any spray or powder at the end.
My absolute favourite has to be the Lunar Makeup Primer. I found it when browsing on Amazon and am completely converted now – Nothing tops this one.
So that ends my mini piece on makeup application. Come back soon for more on the same subject and skincare too.
