Makeup. It’s a term that everyone (well, unless you live under a rock) is somewhat familiar with. Whether you love or hate it is another question entirely, but no one can deny the power that makeup has. Whether you’re looking at movie actors, influencers, or just the neighbor next door, you’re bound to find some makeup on them.
When you’re looking to get a bit more familiar with makeup and start using it, there are several ways to go about it. Depending on the type of makeup and look you want, you can find a whole variety available to you.
What’s So Good About Makeup?
Let’s face it, there’s a ton of makeup available out there, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. But when you’ve just started learning about makeup, you might wonder why people are so fascinated by it in the first place.
Makeup can be used by different people for different purposes. Some might want to flaunt some facial features, and others might want some to be hidden away. Some want to express their personality, while others opt for neutral looks.
Makeup can be good to you for a variety of reasons. Whether you want to flaunt or hide, that’s your choice and we completely respect it!
Taking Care of Your Skin
Before you get started on using and finding makeup for your skin, it’s crucial to know what helps your makeup stay on better and for longer. If you tend to forget to put on a moisturizer or sunscreen, it’s something we definitely don’t recommend when you’re putting on makeup. Good makeup requires a good foundation to start building upon, and your skin needs to be a smooth canvas before you do anything else! Use a hydrating moisturizer and sunscreen. If you tend to have oily skin, using a primer beforehand can also work wonders.
If you’re planning on applying some body makeup, we would recommend using the Anatomicals Body Scrub and Anatomicals Body Lotion before you start putting on makeup. It can ensure that your skin is smooth and moisturized and ready for a flawless makeup application!
Doing Some Research
When you’re looking to get started on your makeup journey, you need to know what kind of makeup products can make a difference for you. Some people like to use foundation, while others stick to BB creams or just concealer. Depending on your needs, it can be worthwhile to find something that works for your skin type.
Do some research into the different types of makeup that are available today and decide what you want. Are you looking to go for vibrant and loud makeup? If so, investing in colorful palettes and shadows can be the right choice.
Make a list of the kind of makeup you’d be interested to try out and choose color schemes as well. Some makeup will need to match your skin tone exactly so you might have to make an educated guess or go to a store to do so.
Investing in the Basics
Once you’ve done your research, it’s time to start buying! We’d definitely recommend that you get a few quality makeup products like a concealer, foundation, eye shadow palette, eyeliner and lipstick. You can do a lot of different things with just these basic products. Lipstick and eye shadow palettes can also work as a blush or highlighter when you need it to be.
Think carefully about the kind of purchases you want to make before you go online or to a shop. Setting a budget is also helpful at this point since it helps you not overspend but still get all the products you need!
It’s Time for a Makeover!
When you’ve made the purchases, it’s time to try them out! Now, you could do this in two ways. You could simply start applying the makeup if you have an idea of what’s supposed to go where and how it’s supposed to look. You could also watch YouTube tutorials or read through guides to help you achieve the perfect look!
