  • Blend, Blend, Blend: Blending is key to achieving a natural look. Use a blending sponge or brush to blend foundation, concealer, and eyeshadows for a smooth and flawless finish.

  • Less is More: Especially for beginners, it's better to start with less product and gradually build up. You can always add more, but removing excess product can be challenging.

  • Focus on One Feature at a Time: If you're new to makeup, focus on mastering one feature at a time. Start with simple eye makeup before venturing into more complex techniques.

  • Use Neutral Eyeshadow Colors: Neutral eyeshadow colors are beginner-friendly and versatile. They are easy to blend and can be used for various looks, from casual to more formal.

  • Set Your Makeup: To ensure your makeup lasts throughout the day, use a setting powder for your face and eyeshadow, and finish with a setting spray for a long-lasting look.

  • Clean Your Makeup Tools Regularly: Clean your brushes and sponges regularly to prevent bacteria buildup. This not only ensures better makeup application but also keeps your skin healthy.

  • Remove Makeup Before Bed: Always remove your makeup before going to bed to maintain healthy skin. Use a gentle makeup remover or micellar water to cleanse your face.
