A Work of Art - Makeup Tutorial

By nayabandamal · January 4, 2010 · 0 Comments ·

okay ladies, so here goes the much awaited makeup tutorial from the beautiful and talented Manar!


we know you've been waiting for this for quite some time now, so we're gonna get right to it!


Now, before you can even think of makeup, you need to make sure you have clean, pretty and moisturised skin to begin with. The number one way to looking absolutely gorgeous, is having glowing, moisturised, exfoliated skin. So cleanse and exfoliate everyday, using a gentle product that works for you, moisturise to lock in that pretty glow and lets begin!


Step one: so after you've moisturised, start with a basic foundation. The key to a flawless complexion is making sure your foundation matches your skin tone perfectly. The best way to apply foundation is with your fingertips (for excellent coverage). Check out the pictures for products recommended by Manar

Next up : set the foundation using mineralize skin finish, available in various shades- depending on you skin tone

Step two: For your eyes, start with a colored base, following it with an eyeshadow, stick with neutral shades for the day time and have fun with funky colours for a sexy look at night! Paint Pots are available in a variety of shades - neutral, pictured below is always a safe bet!

Next step, eyeliner. The only way to learn how to wear perfect eyeliner is practise! Work liquid eyeliner from the centre of the lid, close to the lash line outwards, ending with a flick! This eyeliner is an excellent choice for beginners btw bcz of the shorter wand and stiff tip, its easier to use, although not very fine. For perfect application and beginner hands, use the tattoo liner from Kat Von D we've mentioned before!

Lash Power: A girl can never go wrong with too much mascara! I love mascara! You can put as many coats as you like, till you have full and thick looking lashes. Its always wise to invest in a good mascara, specially if you wear contact lenses because cheaper mascaras tend to flake and irritate the eye. YSL has the best mascara bcz its not heavy when you wear it, and it comes off so easily!

Now for that fresh faced look and to add a little oomph! add a touch of silver or gold highlighter to the inner corners of your eyes, along your cheekbones and under your eyebrows. MAC creme base color in Pearl is perfect for the job!

Next step: Lips

Start on your lips with MAC prep+prime microfine lip refinisher, it gently exfoliates your lips and moisturises so that you have naturally beautiful, healthy looking glossy lips to work on.

Once your lips are primed and moisturised, they are ready for some color! Girls, Red is always a safe color to have for lipstick, because its so easy to just dab on some for a soft pink in the day or put on a some coats for a daring red at night. What is so great about red lipstick is that you control the intensity of the color, invest in a good red lipstick because you'll actually use it everyday!You can wear it to work for a sophisticated look, or out at night for that sexy, sultry vixen look :P

You might want to keep a set of your favorite lipgloss handy, if you feel like going for a more playful look. Lancome's juicy tubes are available in a variety of shades and are so lightweight to wear! They stay put, wont run and wont budge for ages!

And finally, the blush!

Sweep blusher from the apples of your cheeks towards your cheekbones to finish off your look. Nars blushes come in intense colours which can be played up or down, according to your mood. You just have to use these blushes once to fall in love with them!Speaking of Nars, they also carry these amazing colrs in creme textured sticks called multiples and can be used for the eyes, cheeks and lips! Love them!And with that we come to end of our makeup tutorail!

Oh and ladies, skip the shimmer during daytime to avoid looking like Edward Cullen, and please DO make sure you look at yourself in a properly lit mirror beofre you step outside! We want people to be in awe, not afraid! :P


Alright, Stay pretty!

Lots of Love, xoxo
