Makeup Tricks Every Budding Beauty Should Follow

So, you decided to explore the world of makeup -- and if to some extent you feel overwhelmed, it’s totally understandable. For one, even extreme beauty junkies are always on the lookout for anything that will give them the right knack to up their makeup game.

Bobbie Cosmetics offers quality value-for-money beauty products suitable for young women, as they search for that signature look that enhances the beauty they already have. So, if you are new to makeup and want to learn the basics of cosmetics wizardry, consider this as the ultimate step-by-step guide on how to apply makeup.

Step 1: Do your skincare
First and foremost, makeup applies better when the skin is well-prepped. The essential steps of skin preparation are cleansing, toning, moisturizing, applying sunscreen, and priming. It’s important to religiously protect your skin not only to avoid skin issues down the road but also to keep a youthful and glowing complexion (your future self will thank you for it!).

Step 2: Apply foundation, color corrector, and concealer
If you’re looking to cover up pimples and dark spots, a full-coverage foundation is your best bet. However, for an everyday look with a more natural fashion, you can totally skip the foundation, and go straight to color corrector and concealer. Bobbie Cosmetics Don’t Go With The Flaw Color Corrector + Concealer palette (Php299) has a cream formula with 3 different shades fit for every skin tone, to create a flawless and even out complexion.

STEP 3: Do your eyebrows
Kilay is life, we know, so it’s important to do this in the early part of your routine. Bobbie Cosmetics Retractable Eyebrow Pencil with Brush (Php 165) has a pigmented and creamy formula that’s easy to glide on. Just follow the natural shape of your brows, then start filling in lightly from the center, creating a gradient. For budding beauties blessed with thick eyebrows, a simple brow gel will do to put the hair strands in place.

STEP 4: Contour and blush
Contouring may seem intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. For starters, the powder formula is more suitable for sculpting the hollows of the cheeks, the sides of the nose, the hairline just above the forehead, and jawline. Bobbie Cosmetics Gleam Squad Contour & Strobe (P399) has an easy-to-blend powder formula, with shades that flatter morena skin tones. For blush, Bobbie Cosmetics Poppin’ Cheeks (Php 115) has 5 sheer cheek stains for stunningly-flushed looks. To put on blush, smile big to catch the apples of your cheeks, then apply and blend from there.

STEP 5: Highlight on fleek
Give your natural radiance a boost! Highlighters are designed to accentuate the high points of your face, mainly the center of your forehead, nose bridge, cupid’s bow (the the curve on your upper lip!), cheekbones, and brow bone. Bobbie Cosmetics Glow Obsession (Php 299) is a liquid illuminator in shades of Candlelight, Sunset, and Blossom, to give you that lit-from-within glow for a fresh and youthful look.

STEP 6: Glide your lipstick
To complete the look, swipe on a statement lip based on your mood for the day. Bobbie Cosmetics Matte About Hue lip colors (P165) teems with a collection of 23 shades to give budding beauties a sophisticated allure. Tip: For those of you who love matte lipsticks, dab a thin layer of baby powder over your lips, and watch any lipstick finish with a mattifying effect.
