“That’s one of the things I love about makeup. You can change your whole attitude by just doing your eyeliner or lipstick differently.”
– Beyonce

And we couldn’t agree with Queen B more. Of course, beauty is not skin-deep, but a little finishing touches won’t hurt anyone. Also, if makeup boosts your confidence, you wear it every day and with pride. However, if you are a newbie to the entire concept of doing makeup but would want to explore your options, this is a good starting point.

Taking notes from famous beauty bloggers like Corralista, Sherry Shroff, and Erica Fernandez, we have curated a step-by-step guide of how to do your makeup right.

Step by Step Makeup Tutorials

Basic Beginner’s Makeup

Basic Beginner’s Makeup

If you have never used contour powder and primers, don’t fret with the big words and start with the small and readily available products to get the hang of makeup.

Step 1: Foundations and concealers are good for makeup, but if you are starting, BB cream is your best friend. You can go for BB creams from Ponds or Maybelline. Take 2-3 drops of it on your finger and apply it evenly on your face and neck. You can also use a brush for the same. Make sure you pick a BB cream that matches your skin color; otherwise, you will end up with cakey makeup.

Cover up the BB cream with a thin layer of compact powder to seal off the base of your makeup. You can use Maybelline White Fresh Compact Powder.

Step 2: Next up, apply a little blush on your cheekbone, starting from your lips to your eyes in an upward motion. You can use Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush.

Step 3: When the cheeks are done, do your eye makeup. For this, you can either just apply kajal or go all out with eyeliner and brow pencils. For beginners, the best and inexpensive kajal is the Maybelline Colossal Kajal and Maybelline New York Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner. For the brows, you can use Miss Claire Waterproof Eye Brow Pencil, which comes in different shades and with a brush.

Step 4: Once your eye makeup is all done, apply a dab of lip gloss on your lips, followed by the lipstick of your choice. For starters, you can use the Vaadi lip balm as it gives a rosy tint and moisturizes your lips. For lipsticks, there are plenty of options available that you can choose from – we recommend you pick a shade that matches your skin tone, and you are good to go.

Nude Makeup Look

Nude Makeup Look

For an effortless and chic look, go for the nude makeup.

Step 1: The first step for a nude makeup look is to moisturize your skin well. You can use your go-to moisturizer for this.

Step 2: Now, for the base of your makeup, apply a primer. If you have your own choice that suits your skin, perfect otherwise, you can opt for the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer or Faces Canada Ultime Pro Perfecting Primer. Spread it out evenly on your face and neck for an excellent canvas for your makeup.

Step 3: Next up, you can apply foundation in the shade that best matches your skin tone. Maybelline BB Stick is perfect for all your nude looks. Lock in your primer and foundation with a compact powder or concealer of your choice. The latter is better for people who want to cover up their blemishes.

Step 4:  Add a dab of nude eye shadow above your eyelids to accentuate your eyes, after you have applied your liner, mascara or kajal {all three also works}. Colorbar, Faces Canada, and Maybelline have the most economical nude eyeshadow palettes.

Step 5: Once you are done with your eye makeup, apply a nude lipstick on a matte base, and finish off your nude makeup look.

Everyday Office Makeup Look

Everyday Office Makeup Look

Your everyday office makeup has to be quick and put together. This right here is how you get it.

Step 1: First off, to conceal all the blemishes and dark circles, use a concealer, and apply it evenly on your face and neck. Make sure you cover the spots as well. The right product for this is the LA Girl Pro Concealer in the shade closest to your skin.

Step 2: To lock in the concealer, dab a face powder lightly on your skin. For everyday use, the Maybelline Fit Me Powder is perfect. The Medium Light shade is what goes with a dusky skin tone.

Step 3: Next up, do your brows with the choice of your brow pencil. For an everyday office look, you can opt for Lakme x KKK Brow Definer in the graphite shade.

Step 4: For your eyes, you can either go for a liner or simply do your mascara. The latter is quicker and makes your eyes stand out instantly. The Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara gives the right volume in 3-4 strokes.

Step 5: To give a tint to your cheeks and ensure that makeup stands out, dab a bit of blush. The Lakme x KKK Cream Blush is perfect and highly pigmented, as it gives a rosy look for bright makeup.

Step 6: To finish off your look, apply a matte lipstick in your choice of shade. Both Purplle and Maybelline have a variety of shades that you can pick, depending on your budget.

Virtual Date Night Look

Virtual Date Night Look

For those breezy Sunday dates with your girlfriends or fam.

Step 1: A sun-kissed and breezy look is all about keeping it light. Keeping this in mind, start your brunch makeup look preparation with a concealer. Purplle  has different shades and is perfect for the Indian skin.

Step 2: After the concealer, apply your choice of foundation. If you are confused, start with any good Sculpting foundation. Or Maybelline’s Fit Me foundation in the matte base is also good. You can skip this step if you realize that you are not a foundation person.

Step 3: Do your eyebrows in a subtle and accentuated manner with the Eyebrows Pencil that you can find in any nearby drugstore.

Step 4: Complete your eye makeup with a slightly brown and dark eyeshadow color above your eyelid. Apply mascara on your lashes so that it stands out. You can skip the liner and kajal as a breezy look is all about keeping it minimal and chic.

Step 5: Apply a dab of blush on your cheeks. Smile and move your brush in an upward stroke, and you get that fresh makeup look. To take it up a notch, you can add a pinch of highlighter on your cheekbones. Go natural and use a blush or highlighter for desired results.

Step 6: Last but certainly not the least, put on your favorite pink tinted lipstick, or you can always stick to any high shine lip gloss.

House Party Makeup Look

House Party Makeup Look

For all the house parties and special get-togethers, a glowy glam look is the one you need.

Step 1: First of all, correct all the blemishes and under-eye fatigue with the right concealer. Clinique’s Even Better Concealer is something you should try.

Step 2: Next up, you can repeat the process of foundation and face powder to lock in your base for the makeup.

Step 3: Now, as you already know, is the time for eye makeup. For this glowy makeup, you can use the L’Oreal Paris La Palette Nude, and it’s rose shade. Make sure you cover the crease area adequately and apply it evenly. To accentuate your eyes further, apply the lightest shade from this palette along your brow bone and inner eye area as well. Follow it up with your choice of liner, kajal, and mascara. Go for a winged eyeliner to take your makeup a notch up.

Step 4: You can now do your cheeks as per your liking and finish off the makeup with a dark and bold lip colour. Go for a wine shade from your favourite brand. Lipsticks from Sugar Makeup are highly pigmented and perfect for party looks. Start shopping here

You can always add and subtract the steps when you get the hang of it all. Remember, the key to finding your go-to makeup and glam looks is to keep experimenting with products and steps. Another rule of thumb is ‘less is more.’ Keep glowing ladies!’
