1. The first and foremost step is to apply a moisturizer with SPF. This will keep your skin hydrated and also help the concealer glide on smoothly. If you have an oily skin, then use a primer all over your face. Use concealer only in areas where you need it using a pointed concealer brush. Then blend it using your ring finger.Makeup at home 01

2. Applying foundation is the second step. Using a foundation stick may give you a perfectly even skin. Apply thick lines of foundation on your cheek bones, sides of your nose and above your brows and blend with your fingers.Makeup at home 02

3. If you find any mark still poking on your face, you may use a concealer again to hide it. Then dab a little powder with a puff. This will not only keep the foundation intact but will also absorb the extra oil on the face.Makeup at home 03

4. Use a blush to shade and highlight your cheekbones. Always apply the blush with a brush on the apple of your cheeks and then blend the color up toward the temples with your fingers. You can choose bright hues or go natural. If you think you have overdone the cheekbones, defuse it by applying a little foundation over it instead of washing it.Makeup at home 04

5. For getting the right and subtle eye makeup in no time, apply a shimmery cream shadow, usually the lightest shade, from lash lines to the brow bones. Gently rub the shadow with your index finger.Makeup at home 05

6. Use a shadow of your choice or an all-time goer bronze shadow to give more depth to your eyes. Use a flat shadow brush to apply it and smudge it down over the lids using your fingers.Makeup at home 06

7. Finish off your look with double coats of mascara, focusing on the outer lashes. For those having smaller lashes, they may use an eyelash curler before pluming their eyes with mascara. If your brows aren’t full, you may lightly fill them using a pencil kajal.Makeup at home 07

8. Don’t forget to fill your lips with a nice colored lipstick. You can also choose to opt for nude shades. Dab a little balm on your lips if they are dry or cracked. Slick on a layer of gloss to help the color last for long!Makeup at home 08
