Read on to learn how to make sure you’re putting the correct makeup exactly where it needs to go to achieve a flawless and balanced face.
1. Study Your Face Without Makeup
The primary purpose of makeup is to accentuate and enhance the features you already have, not paste new features on top of yours. One of the best ways to learn where to apply makeup to your face is to look at your face without any makeup on at all.
Start with a clean, dry face and stand in front of a mirror. It’s best to use a mirror that allows you to see your face from multiple different angles. Natural light is also important for this process, because you want to be able to determine how your face looks in the lighting that is most similar to the lighting of the environment you’ll be in throughout the day. If you have nothing but synthetic light available, open a window or take your handheld mirror outside for best results.
As you look at your face in the mirror, pay attention to the coloring of your skin. Make a mental note of where your cheeks are naturally rosy and where your cheekbones dip inward to create darker shadows on your skin. Turn your head from side to side and study where the light naturally hits your face and where your skin remains shrouded in shadow, like on the sides of your nose or the edges of your forehead. Take a mental note of all of the things you notice about where your face is illuminated, dark, and colored when you’re not wearing any makeup at all. Then, the next time you apply makeup, enhance your natural features by putting blush over your natural rosiness and adding highlighter and contour to the areas that are naturally illuminated and shadowed.
2. It’s Not All About Your Face
Many people tend to spend so much time and energy applying makeup to their face that they forget about the rest of their visible skin as well. In order to achieve a natural and balanced makeup look, it is important to apply skin makeup to your neck and chest as well as your face. If you fail to apply any makeup below your jawline, your face will end up a different shade than the rest of your skin and you will likely look unnatural and discolored.
It is not necessary to coat your neck and chest in primer, foundation, powder, and all of the other heavy skin products you likely use on your face. However, it is necessary to add some coverage in those areas to keep your makeup looking balanced.

3. Get Your Blush Right
Cheek makeup can be one of the most difficult types of makeup to apply because, with bronzer, blush, highlighter, and
While still smiling, swirl the blush onto the apples of your cheeks, blending it in in small circles. Don’t just leave two large circles of color on your cheeks, however. Create a glowing color that looks natural by using your fingers or a sturdy, round brush to blend your blush upward from the apples of your cheeks toward the upper tip of your ear and downward toward the back of your jawline.
4. Lift Your Brows Up
When you apply product to define and shape your
In order to achieve flawless lifted eyebrows with makeup, don’t just swipe eyebrow powder, gel, or cream product in a line across the entirety of your eyebrow. Instead, leave the product at the inner edge of your brows light. Blend the product outward and apply the heaviest coverage to the very top of your brow arch to create the illusion that your entire face is lifted and alert.
5. Even Out Your Lipstick
Many people have a tendency to apply their lipstick very unevenly completely unintentionally. It is more difficult to apply lipstick to the very edges of your lips, so many people focus on swiping lipstick onto the center of their lips instead. This unbalanced application creates a fake and choppy look rather than a smooth and seamless appearance.
In order to look natural, pay attention to the amount of lipstick you apply to which area of your lips. Make sure that the lipstick coverage at the center of your top and bottom lips is blended sufficiently and is not too heavy and don’t forget to apply a thorough coat of lipstick to the inner corners of your lips.
