Airbrushed Skin In Real Life! 😍
Everyone wants perfect skin, but with problems like acne, dark circles and other blemishes, it's quite a hard task. Here's a foolproof guide to skin that looks photoshopped!
Follow the routine: Exfoliate, cleanse, tone, moisturise
Remember to look for products specific for your skin type.. If you have sensitive skin, try to stick with products that have no added perfumes or other unnecessary ingredients to prevent irritation.
I would suggest doing this routine on your face daily.
You can also apply a face mask weekly or more often if you want.. These can be bought or made (see next slide for recipe)
You could also care for your skin whilst you sleep with a sleeping mask.
Face mask recipe:
2-3 drops lemon juice
Coconut & olive oil are great moisturisers. Honey is a humectant which draws in moisture and along with lemon juice helps to even skin tone.
Use this mask at least once a week for best results.
Try a face peel. These are used to even out your skin complexion and eliminate topmost layer of the skin that has become old and look dull with skin discoloration, to help you get flawless skin!
Wear sunscreen every day - even if it's cloudy! 80% of the sun's rays can penetrate through clouds and damage your skin. This really is one of the best ways to reduce ageing and have better skin in the future. Aim for spf 30.
To get rid of a spot, apply tea tree oil to and around it.
Keep eye cream in the fridge and apply it cold before bed to prevent puffy eyes the next morning.
Many people love freckles but if you really can't stand them on yourself, apply lemon juice to your face daily to get rid of them.
Eye products containing vitamin C can help get rid of dark circles.
Look for products containing salicylic acid to help get rid of blackheads and acne.
Even having a good routine for your skin and fixing particular blemishes doesn't guarantee perfect skin, so just fake it!
When it comes to using makeup to get perfect skin, the starting point is the right base.
1. Moisturiser alone can be used as a base for foundation. Just one layer works, but some people like many layers - apply as many as you think works best for your skin. If necessary, blot off excess moisturiser with tissue between layers.
2. Primer is a popular choice for a base, but is only really necessary for day-long wear.
Primers do come with their problems though... Most are silicone based and as are most foundations - this equals cakeyness!
A lot of the time, people use waaaay to much primer and that in itself can make your makeup look cakey. Simple rule - however much primer you're using, USE LESS! (This applies to foundation too!)
If you're skipping foundation, you can use a primer by itself to mattify your skin and improve texture.
One last tip on your base - If your foundation seems crap, try switching the base. If you're using moisturiser, use primer and vice versa.
Colour correction is the next step to conceal blemishes.. Remember to use the colour wheel - colours opposite eachother cancel eachother out.. So blue circles around the eyes can be concealed with an orange tone. Make your own corrector using concealer and a few drops of food colouring.
Liquid foundation is the next step.. Match the colour to your jawline (or centre of the chest if you don't want to test on the face). The type of foundation your choose is up to you, but if you have particularly oily skin for example, a matte foundation would be a good choice.
Getting the right amount of coverage for your skin is essential! Most people DON'T need full coverage makeup. If you can get away with the bare minimum, do so!
If you have almost perfect skin, just use tinted moisturiser and leave it at that.
Remember, the goal of makeup is to make you look flawless, but NOT FAKE! The aim is to make it look like we're wearing as little makeup as possible, and the way to achieve that, IS to wear as little makeup as possible.
A combination of foundations can work great - Try matte on the T zone and dewy around the perimeter of your face.
How you apply foundation is important - for light coverage, just use your fingers. For medium coverage, use a brush. And for full coverage, use a sponge.
If using a brush, try swirling it round on your hand before applying foundation to "warm it up" and give better application!
Adding a couple of drops of oil to your foundation sheers it out and gives a perfect finish!
For much lighter coverage, add a small amount of moisturiser to your foundation.
A light coat of powder can help set the foundation and gives a matte finish. Apply with a poofy brush for light coverage.
Apply blush to cheekbones, not apples of the cheeks because when you stop smiling, the apples drop. Makeup here will bring the face down rather than lifting it up!
More tips for flawless makeup...
Try the buffing technique (I have a tip on this) which is basically buffing loose powder into the face after foundation and contouring.
Try "baking" your makeup (a google search will bring up loads of tutorials) to set under eye makeup and prevent creasing.
If you have beauty spots, pencil them back in after your foundation! This way, no one will guess you're actually wearing foundation as your skin will just look like skin. Much more natural! If you don't have beauty spots, you could always just create them.
Apply a highlighter under foundation for a natural glow.
This sounds crazy, but try powdering your face before liquid foundation - it'll help fill in your pores for a perfect finish!
To help prevent creasing, spray a makeup brush with setting spray and lightly brush under the eyes before concealer.
For natural and flawless looking skin, you MUST blend well! There should be no harsh contour or foundation lines. To blend cream or liquid contour products, use a damp beauty blender and foundation with oil mixed in. Remember to apply foundation beyond the jawline and onto the ears!
