For a fresh, flawless makeup that looks like you are not wearing makeup start with the basics: wash and exfoliate the face with a mild cleanser and cloth. Follow with a moisturizer or tinted lotion to even out skin tone. Conceal any flaws and use powder if needed. Then choose a warm skin color for the cheeks, and define the eyes and lips. For best results, always choose new beauty products that are known for quality. Oro Gold Cosmetics are a great choice.
Below are some simple tips to follow, recommended by Oro Gold Cosmetics and others in the industry:
1 Moisturize and even out skin tone. Use a moisturizer on a clean face. One that contains SPF of at least 15 is a good choice for the added benefit of sun protection. There are also tinted lotions available with sunscreen. These are sheer so you don’t have to match them to your skin exactly, unlike foundation, and they can be applied like regular lotions.
2 Conceal any flaws. For breakouts or blemishes, and under eye circles, use a pigment-rich concealer. The key is to use just the right amount – using too much will just accentuate the problem. For blemishes, dab, blend, and build up coverage in thin layers. For dark circles, swipe a small amount under the eyes, then pat with the ring finger or pinky to blend.

3 Use powder if needed. For skin that tends to get oily, follow with an oil-absorbing powder. Swirl on the powder with a brush in a circular motion to avoid a powdery look. Note: for very oily skin, skip the moisturizer altogether and use only the concealer and powder.
4 Choose a warm color for cheeks. Cream blushes in warm peaches and pinks give the skin a subtle, natural-looking flush. Apply to cheeks with your fingers, blending out in circles. Oro Gold Cosmetics has great choices for the cheeks, eyes, and lips.
5 Define the lips. To get a pretty tint, choose a shade that matches your lips and press the color into the lips with fingertips rather than applying directly from the tube. Concentrate in the center and blend out.
6 Enhance the eyes. Most people think that the eyes are the most attractive feature on the face. Knowing how to do eye makeup can greatly enhance your natural beauty. Shade the eyelids with a soft brownish tint to enhance the eyes’ natural contours without showing up as shadow (choose a shade slightly darker than your skin). Brush into the creases and along the lower lids. For extra eye brightening, apply a light shade – like champagne – to the brow bone, center of the lids and the inner corners of the eyes. Lightly dot a soft gray or brown eyeliner pencil between the top lashes for extra definition. Finish with mascara. Defined lashes are critical even for a no-makeup look. Apply two coats to the top lashes (use brown for blond hair; if darker, use brownish-black). Use a flat eyeliner brush to grab a small amount of mascara from the wand and apply it to just the roots of the bottom lashes.
Good lighting will produce the best results. If possible, makeup should be done in daylight, near a window, to ensure you are using the lightest touch. Using Oro Gold products or another trusted name will give you the desired results without skimping on quality.
