Now that I’ve shared a list of makeup products let’s go further and discuss different makeup uses!

Whether you’re looking for a subtle, natural look or an all-over dramatic effect, face foundation can help you achieve the desired outcome. It can be used to even out skin tone, hide blemishes and brighten dull skin. It also helps protect your skin from environmental pollutants and sun damage while providing a smooth canvas for other makeup products.
Color correctors are designed to neutralize skin discolorations such as dark circles, age spots, and hyperpigmentation. By applying a color-or that is the exact opposite of your skin discoloration, you can balance out any imperfections and create a more even complexion.

Concealers are used to hide imperfections such as acne, scars, blemishes, and dark circles. They provide coverage that is heavier than foundation and is used to hide stubborn flaws that cannot be covered with foundation alone. Concealer can also be used to help brighten under the eye.
Face powder is used to set makeup and help it last longer. It helps to reduce shine, giving you a matte finish that looks natural and stays put. Powder also helps to absorb excess oils and minimize the look of pores, ensuring that your makeup looks smooth and flawless all day long.

Fun fact (and disclaimer): I was a makeup artist for over ten years, and I know how overwhelming the makeup product world can be! While this is a list of makeup products, YOU DO NOT NEED EVERYTHING!
There are certain things on this list that I don’t use and did not really use on clients. For example, I don’t use a color corrector on myself because I don’t really need it.
For certain clients, I wouldn’t use false lashes because their natural lashes were so thick they didn’t need it!
Use what makes sense for you, and omit anything that doesn’t!
Makeup products name list step by step:
Now that I’ve shared the different makeup products and their uses, let’s talk about the things you need for a full face of makeup step-by-step:
1- When applying makeup, you want to start with a freshly washed and clean face that has been moisturized with a face moisturizer.
I recommend applying a face primer to your face and neck. This will allow your makeup to go on smoother, last longer, and blend better. You can apply your face primer with a brush, sponge, or with your hands.
2. Next, using a foundation brush or a beauty blender sponge, apply liquid foundation evenly across your face and down your neck. Make sure you blend well! You can swap out foundation makeup for bb cream, cc cream, or tinted moisturizer.
You can also use a concealer or color corrector to cover up any dark spots. If you find that your foundation is not enough and your dark spots or blemishes still show through your foundation, consider a fuller coverage foundation or a color corrector.
3. Once your foundation is done, it’s time for the eyebrows! Fill in your eyebrows with a brow product of your choice. You can use an eyebrow pencil, powder, gel, or wax. Make sure to make small strokes and blend the product in well.
Shop: Brow products
4. Next up is eyeshadow! Apply a light shade all over the lid, followed by a medium shade in the crease. Blend it together.
Shop: eyeshadow products
5. Optional: Once your eyeshadow is done, you can apply eyeliner. Line the top lash line with a pencil eyeliner or liquid eyeliner. You can create a classic winger eyeliner look or something more bold. You can also smudge it out for a more blended look.
Shop: Eyeliner products
6. Finish your eye look with mascara which is applied to your lashes.
7. Optional: If you want an EXTRA pop, consider applying false lashes!
Shop: False lashes
False lashes can be a little difficult to apply for beginners, so here is a quick video sharing how to apply lashes for beginners:
8. Now that your eyes are complete, let’s move on to concealer. Use a concealer that matches your skin tone or is 1-3 shades lighter (if you want a bright-eye look!). Apply the concealer under the eyes. Blend it in with a beauty blender sponge.
9. Optional: Apply a setting power directly over your concealer to help prevent your concealer from moving around. You can apply your setting powder with a sponge on top of your concealer and then brush off any excess powder with a small brush.
Shop: Setting powder
10. Now, let’s add some blush! Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks for a natural look.
11. Optional: Contour helps to add dimension back into your face and make your face appear slimmer. Contour makeup should be darker than your complexion. Apply to your cheekbones and the perimeter of your face.
12. Optional: Highlight makeup helps to make your face glow and highlight all the areas of your face that you want to bring attention to. Apply a little bit of highlighting makeup to the tops of your cheekbones, the center of your nose, and your cupid bow.
13. Finally, it’s time for the lips! Lipstick will help to pull the whole look together. Line your lips with a lip liner of your choice, and then apply lipstick. You can go for a bold look or keep it more natural. You can swap out lipstick for lip gloss, lip balm, or use all 3!
Shop: Lip products
14. Optional: Finish your makeup look with setting spray! Setting spray helps to help your makeup stay put all day. It should be the last step in your routine.
