Today's tutorial is going to be on dewy daytime look and the products i used for this makeup tutorial are very affordable and easy to find here in Malaysia. This tutorial is made specially for those who do not have loads of makeup, and want to start learning doing basic makeup. You can always skip the eyeshadow step if you don't have time to do it. Or u still can use one colour on your lids to make your face look more fresh with that little tint of colour.
Remember, PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!
You can totally wear this look to work, college, malls, or even on a date. This look is very natural without using too many colours on the eyes, simple to achieve without much hassle but yet very captivating and fresh...
Let's get started!
First, prep your face with toner and moisturizer after you've cleansed it. Then grab your foundation (any foundation of your choice), and put it in dots, on these areas of your face (refer picture). You can use any foundation that suit your skin tone, and have the texture that you like. For beginners, I would suggest Revlon ColorStay Makeup with Softflex SPF6 foundation because the coverage is really good, and they have big range of colours that you can choose from to match your skin tone. Loreal True Match Foundation is a great dupe too, since the texture is more "watery" or "runny" you might say, than the Revlon one which is a bit creamy. You can easily get your hands on these products at Watson's @ Guardian stores near you. They cost approximately between RM 45- RM 60.
Please excuse my "bangun tido" face yeeeea..i bet most of u look like this too in the morning.hehe..
Today, i am using a foundation from Etude House called "Baby Skin Foundation". I still love my Clinique, Revlon, Makeup Forever etc but i just love how this foundation moisturize my skin (thus contribute to the dewy look) and i switch foundation every day depending on my mood or the look i want to achieve. The only thing about this foundation is, they only have it in 2 tones. Luckily this one suits my skin tone well.
I think i bought this foundation for only about RM20 or less because i went to Etude House when they were having sale. I still can't believe that a very cheap foundation can look quite good..
2) Eye concealer
Please don't be afraid. This is not a tribal makeup tutorial.
U can skip this step if your foundation can cover your panda eyes.
Here i am using Maybelline Perfect Concealer in Light Beige. Always use a more orange/salmon/peach type of colour to cancel out the bluishness of your dark circles.
3) Setting your face with a powder
Since i am a fan of full coverage, not sheer coverage, i always use a compact/powder foundation to set my foundation instead of using just translucent powder.
Here is another option. For those of you who are looking for a good powder with a very affordable price, u can try MIYAMI powder foundation (can get it in Cosway). It is stinkin' cheap! i mean like really cheap, and it gives u a great coverage. How great is that??? The price is about RM20. The best thing about this powder is, professional makeup artists swear on this product and they have been using this powder on their clients for years or even decades! They have it in Light, Medium and Dark. I personally prefer Dark, but my sister prefers Medium.
Just fill your eyebrows with any eyeshadow that suits your hair colour. I use an angle brush for this.
I like to set my eyebrows with an eyebrow gel so that the hair looks more neat and not all over the place in crazy directions. Here i am using Dr. Mascara Fixer from Etude House. Any clear gel mascara will do. You can skip this step if you don't need to.
5) Eye Primer And Eyeshadow
If u want to know which eye primer i'm using, u can refer here. You can always use a nude eye primer instead. I used this because i want to enhance the brown and bronze colour that i was going to use on my eyes.
My sister helped me with the eyeshadow because i was too lazy to put it on. Thanks adik!
At this stage, your face should look at least like this.
MAC Vanilla Pigment. Any shimmery pearl colour can do the trick. Place it on your tear duct area, and also under your brow bone. This trick opens up your eyes and makes your eyes look bigger and more awaken.
I also use this pigment on my cheek bones, a bit on the tip of my nose and some on my chin (remember to put in on high points on your face) to give my face a DEWY LOOK.
You can use brown, gold, bronze or taupe colour on your eyes to give it a natural look. Here my sister used some random natural colours that we had with us because i didn't bring my eyeshadow palette along. Remember to BLEND BLEND BLEND!!! or u will end up looking like you have been punched by your psycho boyfriend.
Add some darker colour on that crease line of yours to give your eyes more depth and definition.
6) Eyeliner And Mascara
Eyeliner- Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner ( i will do a special tutorial on how to draw your eyeliner)
Mascara- Maybelline The Magnum Volum' Express
For blusher, just SMILE and apply it on the apples of your cheeks, blending towards your temple/ parietal bone.
I'm using Elianto Rosey Cheeks Blusher that was recommended by my sister. It gives you that silky soft, healthy, rosey glow.
The reason why i used this blusher in this tutorial because it is cheap. Only RM 13. Very affordable rite??
And there you have it!! An absolutely long makeup tutorial on how to achieve a dewy natural daytime look.
All the best.
