Thank you for joining us today for Kapenzo™ Hair Tip of the Week. We all want to know how to apply makeup and get that full but natural coverage without having to go and have it professionally done. The most important thing that all beauticians and cosmeticians will advise you prior to using make up is to take care of your skin and preserve its natural beauty. Below is a list of tips and tricks that you may find useful.
The most important thing to remember before applying your makeup is to clean your face. Never apply makeup on top of the skin if it has not been cleansed. This will cause the pores of the skin to become clogged and bacteria to start growing, resulting in acne.
-There are 3 products that must be used to cleanse the skin. First is an oil-free face wash. This will allow the products to penetrate the skin and remove all impurities that are deep in the pores, leaving the skin feeling refreshed. In addition to this, a face wash that contains oil will leave a film on the skin that can cause irritation to pre-existing pimples.
-After cleansing it is very important to use a toner. The skin is made up of a pH Balance which measures the alkalinity and acidity of our skin on a scale of 1-10, 1-5.2 being acidic and 5.6-10 being alkaline. The normal pH Balance ranges from 5.3-5.5. The chemicals in almost all face wash tend to throw the pH Balance off scale, however toners help bring it back to normal. It also helps remove any makeup residue that was not removed with a face wash, giving your skin that vibrant glow. Without a toner, the skin will appear dry and depending on the sensitivity of your skin, may cause it to hurt when touched.
-The last step to the cleansing process is moisturizing. A light moisturizer is always recommended as heavy ones may clog pores and interfere with the skins natural oil content.
– Once these three steps have been completed, wait 10 minutes before starting your makeup application. This allows for the products to penetrate your skin and assist in cell regeneration.
– Primer is a silicone based product that will help to even out the skin’s surface but allow the pores to breath. This is an optional product and if used, must be applied before any other makeup product.
-There are three products that are first applied when makeup is done. The concealer will help camouflage dark circles and spots such as under the eyes are scars on the face that may have resulted from acne. Then a foundation is applied to the entire face to blend the concealer. Lastly, a finishing powder is used to set the makeup and make the application last longer.
-It is always best to start any makeup application with the eyes first as this allows for products that may fall, to be removed without disrupting the rest of the application.
-Blush may be used to either add color to the cheeks or enhance the cheeks bones. This should be applied in either a downward motion or inward motion, depending on your face shape and purpose of applying blush.
– Our last tip for today is when applying lip colors; always use a lip liner that is either a neutral color or a color that matches the lipstick you intend to wear. Lip liners help to prevent the lip colors from bleeding and looking messy.
