Jan 31, 2008
They always say that makeup is an art. Rather than getting discouraged, there is something comforting in that. This means that with the proper instruction anybody can turn a drab look into something fantastic. All it takes is someone to show you what to do.

When you are planning for a big night out, it can be fun to try a new look. However, if you do not know what you are doing, the consequences can seem terrifying. We have all tried it, and later wished we did not. But, if you could have someone show you skincare and makeup application tips, would you be more interested in trying something new?

Learn how to cleanse, tone, and moisturize your face. So, next time that you think of trying a new look, you will have the knowledge and confidence to apply a beautiful makeup application!

Cleansing the Face
You are going to begin by cleansing your skin to make sure that you are prepared to put your makeup on. First use a cleanser and then a toner and finally a moisturizer. Those are the 3 steps that you need to do to make your foundation and makeup stay on throughout the day or evening.

First, take a damp cloth and dampen your face. Use a small amount of gentle eye makeup remover to remove any mascara or eyeliner that you had on previously. Do this very gently and avoid getting the remover in your eyes. Make sure to rub the eye makeup remover to the outside corner of your eye to keep you from getting the old mascara or eyeliner into your eye.

Next, make sure that you use a good cleanser so that you do not have to rub on your skin to hard. Make sure that you use a product that is going to cleanse your skin really well but be gentle at the same time. You want to make sure as you are cleansing your face, that you do not pull and tug on your skin.

Pulling and tugging on your skin can cause wrinkles to form, which could take 5-10 years to show up. Make sure that you rub very, very gently when you are working on your face and around your eye area in particular.

Place a small amount of the cleanser on your fingertip and touch your forehead, each of your cheeks, your chin and on the center of your face. You do not have to use a lot of cleanser and do not use a cleanser that has any soap in it. Now rub the cleanser lightly into your skin. It is going to cleanse your skin and take off any makeup that may be left from before so that your makeup will be fresh as we apply it. Rub very lightly on your forehead and remember not to pull and tug on your skin. We do not want to start those wrinkles to form.

Normalize or Tone
Use a PH skin normalizer also known as a toner. This step will make sure that your foundation and makeup stays on throughout the day and evening so that you do not need to reapply it. The Ph normalizer will help to even out the Ph level of your skin (around 5.5 - 5.7 Ph) so that your makeup stays on for longer periods of time and looks very smooth.

There are two ways to apply the Ph normalizer. Either spray the Ph normalizer directly on to your face or spray it on to a cotton ball and rub it lightly on to your skin. When spraying directly onto the face, spray it 3 or 4 times about a foot away from your face. Make sure to put her lips together and close your eyes before spraying your face.

The next step in our skin care is our moisturizer.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize. This is a very important step to help prevent wrinkles from forming.

You want to make sure you use a good moisturizer that will help the foundation to go on the skin more evenly. This will also help to protect your skin against wind, sun and effects of aging.

Place a small amount of the moisturizer on your fingertip and apply it in the same way that you did your cleanser on the forehead, cheeks, chin and nose. Rub the moisturizer into your skin very, very lightly making sure not to pull or tug on your skin. Make sure that you have applied the moisturizer to every place on your face to make your foundation go on evenly all over.
