How to make gentle makeup?

How to make gentle makeup for every day?

Pale pink makeup

For many girls, delicate makeup is associated with everyday nudes, but these are far from all make-up variations. You can create a beautiful delicate make-up not only with the help of flesh-colored shadows and faded lipsticks, but also by adding catchy accents.

You can decorate a gentle light make-up:

  • arrows;
  • translucent shimmer;
  • glitter;
  • Unusual techniques for applying shadows;
  • Colored ink.

Depending on the purpose of the make-up, accents are also chosen. So evening makeup in nude shades will be ideally combined with techniques: “loop”, “butterfly”, “smoky ice”. In this case, you can use dark brown and ashy shadows to give the necessary smoky effect on the eyes.

The classic scheme for applying shadows with gentle makeup is considered to be a relief technique in which two or three shades are used and applied with a gradient.

Gentle day makeup

Delicate make-up with classic arrows is suitable for everyday life, which will give the face freshness and help highlight the look. You can make such a make-up at home quite quickly and easily, for this you will need:

  • Nude eyeshadow palette;
  • Foundation;
  • Color correctors;
  • primer;
  • Translucent powder;
  • The ink is black or dark brown;
  • Liquid eyeliner;
  • Black soft eyeliner;
  • Cream lipstick.

Before you start applying makeup, you need to study all the subtleties and nuances that can significantly affect the final result, as well as familiarize yourself with the basic steps for its implementation.

Color accent in makeup can also be added. The most fashionable option is considered to be with the summed mucous membrane of the lower eyelid. Usually it is brought down with a soft pencil in muted saturated shades of green, blue or purple. The shade is chosen depending on the natural color of the eyes.

Foundation preparation

Primer application

The main thing for a beautiful and delicate make-up is smooth and even skin. Before applying shadows, it is very important to prepare a good base for make-up. Therefore, first of all, it is necessary to thoroughly cleanse the face with a sponge or cotton pad moistened with tonic. Tonic can be replaced with micellar water. The best option would be a tool with a matte effect.

Then you need to apply a special primer. It can be white, beige or pink depending on skin tone. The use of this cosmetic product contributes to a better adhesion of makeup.

The primer should be carefully shaded over the surface of the face. You can apply it with a brush or fingers with soft, light movements. On top of the primer, you can also use a concealer to help hide minor imperfections on the epidermis and narrow the pores.

Defect correction

Zonal application of color correctors

The second important step in preparing the skin for further makeup application is the masking of skin imperfections. To do this, use special color correctors to help hide acne, facial blemishes and fine wrinkles or even scars.

Correctors are applied pointwise or zonal, depending on the size of the defect. So the green shade helps to hide redness, pink masks bruises, purple removes yellowness, and nude nuances allow you to adjust the shape of the face, eyes and nose. Each shade must be carefully shaded.


Blending foundation

In accordance with the tone of the skin, a foundation is also selected. The foundation should completely match the skin tone so that the effect of a “mask” on the face is not created. Apply foundation or BB cream with a brush, and gently blend with a sponge.

Important: it is necessary to shade the tonal foundation from the face from the cheekbones to the neck in order to avoid sharp transitions.

It is best to choose a foundation with a matte effect. This cream will hide enlarged pores and remove oily sheen from the face. A foundation with shimmery particles should be used when the rest of the makeup is planned in nude skin tones.

Powder application

Applying face powder

For daytime makeup, makeup artists recommend using a transparent powder with a matte effect. In some cases, you can choose a powder with shimmering particles that are able to reflect light and give the face a slight glow.

It is better to apply the powder with a special large brush with a soft pile in a thin layer, while covering the entire surface of the face and neck. You should start from the top of the face, gradually descending to the chin.

Use of blush

Applying blush

The final step in prepping your face is applying blush. You should also choose blush according to your skin tone, so a pink undertone is better for a cold color type, and orange for a warm one.

Blush must be applied before eye makeup.

Apply blush with a fan-shaped brush on the cheekbones and cheeks. It is important not to overdo it with the amount of cosmetics, otherwise, instead of a fresh look, you can achieve the opposite effect.

Eye makeup

Gentle everyday makeup

The next important step in creating a delicate make-up is eye makeup. To do this, it is better to choose a nude palette of shadows. Ideal colors would be:

  • Champagne;
  • Peach;
  • Sand;
  • Beige;
  • Bodily;
  • Light brown;
  • Coral.

Eye make-up should also be performed step by step, following the rules and techniques for applying shadows.

Step 1. Interciliary contour

To add density to the eyelashes and visually make them more voluminous and thicker, you can use a soft black pencil. Carefully draw a pencil along the lash line, carefully filling the space between them.

Step 2. Applying eye shadow

As the main shadows, it is recommended to choose delicate pastel colors. An ideal option for everyday makeup would be a shade of champagne with a slight sheen. We apply shadows on the eyelid, shading, including under the lower one.

Step 3. Drawing the corner of the eyelid

Choose a darker shade of shadows from the palette with a matte texture. With a medium-sized brush, draw the outer corner of the movable eyelid with it and gently blend it.

Step 4: Adding an Accent

We select shadows with a warm brown or red undertone, always with a matte texture. The shade should not be darker than the selected corner of the eye. We apply shadows on the crease of the eyelid and blend along with a brush to create a soft smooth transition.

Step 5. Arrows and eyelashes

You can decorate delicate makeup with a thin classic arrow. With a liquid eyeliner, we carefully draw a thin line along the edge of the upper eyelid, without going beyond it. Such an arrow is considered minimalistic and is ideal for work or daytime meetings.
