How to put on makeup to have a fine-tuned face?

It is not necessary to be a professional makeup artist to fine-tune the face with makeup, but it is essential to learn the right techniques to do so, then you only need to practice to improve each day.

Apply the base

It begins by applying a base of the same tone as the skin and then extends to the neck and neckline with the help of a latex sponge. The base should be chosen according to the type of skin, the powders are ideal for oily skin, those of creamy consistency are perfect for dry skin, while the fluid bases adapt to any type of skin.

Outline the face with dark color correctors

In this case dark colors will be used to give depth in some areas, in this way it will be possible to contour the face so that it looks thinner. Creamy concealers or tanning powders can be used, either of these two will be ideal to achieve a finely tuned face through the makeup.

  1. The dark color is applied on the cheekbones, starting from the inside towards the ear and then fading downwards.
  2. Faces that have a very wide jaw can be concealed by applying a dark tone on the line of the same.
  3. The jowl also makes the face appear rounder, so applying a dark tone on it will reduce its size.
  4. Round or square faces have a wide forehead, for this reason a dark tone will be placed on the sides of it, right at the birth of the hair.
  5. It is important to blur well so that the tones melt at the base and there are no lines that divide the colors.

Apply illuminator

To highlight and give volume to the cheekbones you should add a small amount of illuminator on them, then in the center of the forehead and the tip of the nose.

Make up your eyebrows

The eyebrows are very important if you want to get a refined face, when these have a too curved shape and are very thin they make the face appear much rounder and wider.

That is why you should make up your eyebrows with a tone similar to the natural tone, but never use black shadow; in this case you should opt for a gray tone. The eyebrows must be made up so that they obtain an angular shape, since this shape will greatly favor this type of face. Another important detail is that if you need to fill too much space it is better to draw hair by hair to make it look more natural.

Other details to keep in mind

It is important to use a good dark circle concealer, as they make the face look much rounder. It is recommended to highlight the eyes with a nice makeup, in this way it will take the attention of the face. False eyelashes can be used to get a more intense and attractive look. The lips can be made up with light tones or lip glosses that will highlight the lips in a subtle and beautiful way.
