Makeup For Beginners In Just 5 Mins

If you’ve ever been late for work because your makeup didn’t look right, then this post is for you. There’s no reason to feel self-conscious about your looks when you’re just starting out with makeup. Even the most experienced makeup artist can learn new tricks from someone who has never used any sort of cosmetics before. In fact, doing makeup for beginners can be a lot of fun!  So, lets discuss in detail some important steps while doing makeup for beginners.

Here are 12 steps to do makeup for beginners:

Choose the best foundation for you

Choosing the right foundation for your skin tone is important. If you have dry or oily skin, it’s important to choose a foundation that matches your concerns. Makeup artists will often recommend using something in between two foundations—a sheer coverage formula with some coverage and a heavy full coverage formula with no coverage. Applying foundation is one of the makeup essentials for beginners.

If you want to buy online instead of going into a store, do some research on different brands before making your purchase! 

Some popular choices include:

Cleanse your skin and moisturize it with primer 

You need to cleanse your skin in order to get rid of any dirt or oil on the surface. This will help you avoid clogged pores, which can cause breakouts and blemishes later on.

 You can use a soap-free cleanser or simply wash off any makeup residue with warm water (this is not necessary if you are only doing an eyeshadow look). 

Once you’ve done this step, apply a moisturizing serum or cream onto your face before applying makeup—this will keep everything looking fresh throughout the day!

Next step is to apply primer! 

Apply this product evenly all over your face following its instructions.

Use concealer where you need it

Concealer is used to cover blemishes and dark circles, as well as make the skin look more uniform. It can also be used to highlight and contour the face. Concealer can be applied before foundation or bronzer, or after you’ve finished applying your makeup.

You should apply concealer where you need it most–on any spots that need more coverage than what your foundation provides (such as acne scars). 

You might want to try something with less coverage if you have sensitive skin or rosacea; 

However, if there are no visible redness issues in those areas but still need some help smoothing out imperfections from previous breakouts, then using an oil-free formula will work best for those who don’t want anything too heavy on their face!

Apply foundation and mix it well

Apply foundation with a brush. Use a foundation brush to apply foundation, and blend it out with the bristles of your brush.

Use setting powder 

  • Use a translucent powder to set your makeup.
  • Use a brush to apply the setting powder to your entire face, neck and chest area.
  • Use a sponge or puff to apply it evenly over the rest of your face and hands.

Add a pop of color to your eyes

Now that you’ve got your base makeup down, it’s time to add some color. The best way to do this is with a good quality eyeliner pencil, eyeshadow and mascara. 

Your choice of primer will depend on what kind of look you want for your eyes—if you’re going for an all-natural look, then I’d suggest using either an oil free one or just skip it altogether; if not, then use whatever works best for your skin type.

To apply the liner or shadow first (or both) take an extra step and seal them in place by spraying them with setting spray first before adding any additional product(s). This prevents creasing while keeping everything looking fresh throughout the day without having to worry about smudging anything up!

Groom your brows for face-framing arches

After you’ve applied your base and face primer, it’s time to fill in your brows.

  • The first step is grooming them with a pencil or brush to create a nice shape and match up the arch of your natural brows. 
  • If you have sparse areas, use a spooly in those spots; if there are too many hairs that need shaping, use an angled brush (that’s what we’re calling ‘eyebrow’ nowadays) to gently brush them up and out so they look more like arches instead of straight lines across the face. 
  • You can also try using gel products like brow gels because they help keep everything set in place all day long—just make sure not too much product goes on at once since these tend not melt away easily under heat!

Give some definition to your eyes with eyeliner

  • Apply eyeliner to the base of the lashes.
  • Use a thin line for a subtle look and/or use it on top of your mascara as well, if you’d like to add some definition to your eyes.

Use thicker lines for more dramatic looks—thin cat eyes! 

  • You can also try using an angled brush to apply this product because it will help you get into those hard-to-reach places around your eyes (like near their outer corners).

Elevate your eye makeup game with mascara

Mascara is one of the most important tools in your makeup kit. It’s not just for making your eyes pop—it can also help you create that all-important “natural” look, especially if you’re going for a more subtle look.

The biggest tip when applying mascara is to use an eyelash comb, which will keep your lashes looking healthy and voluminous by separating them into individual hairs.

You should also apply mascara after you’ve applied eye shadow or liner; this will not only help lengthen and thicken those lashes but give them some much-needed separation from the rest of your face.

To remove mascara at night: Take off all other products first (eyeliner or shadow), then wash off any residue left behind with cotton pads soaked in warm water worked into a ball shape–this removes any excess product clinging onto each lash so there’s no need for additional cleansers later on down the road!

Make sure you’re pucker ready with lip liner and lipstick duo

  • Lip liner and lipstick are the foundation of any makeup look, but they’re also what make you stand out from the crowd. 
  • If you want to do your best at pulling off a fresh, natural look in no time, get ready for some practice with these two products before moving on to step three!

First things first: 

☑️ You’ll want to use a lip liner pencil to define the shape of your lips before applying lipstick. This will help prevent bleeding when applying color overtop it (and also gives you more control over how much coverage you need). 

☑️ Next, choose a shade that matches your skin tone—if possible try this before buying any other products so that there’s nothing unexpected about how it looks on your face!

☑️ Finally, apply the liner first then fill in with the lipstick; this way if anything gets smeared during application then at least one thing is being fixed right away instead of having repeating mistakes later down road when trying again later on down line…

Avoid these common mascara mistakes

❌ Don’t pump the wand in and out of the tube. Pumping will cause mascara to come out in clumps, which is pretty annoying when you’re trying to apply it evenly.

❌ Be careful not to get too close to your eyes with a brush applicator (like this one). If you do, then there’s a good chance that it could get stuck in your eye—and we all know how painful that can be!

Apply Highlighter 

  • Apply highlighter to the tops of your cheekbones.
  • A brush is best for applying this product, as you can use it to apply light strokes all over your face for a subtle glow effect.

Highlighting is an easy way to add some lightness and brightness to your skin tone without going overboard with contouring or applying foundation too much.

 It’s also a good way to highlight those areas that tend to get lost under all those other products (like under-eye circles).

 If you’re using a highlighter stick rather than an eyeshadow base, make sure not only that it matches your skin tone but also its texture—it needs something creamy enough so it doesn’t drag down over time while still giving off enough shine!

Use setting spray to set makeup 

Setting spray is a must-have for all makeup lovers. It can help your makeup last longer, look more natural and vibrant, and even help it look matte!

Setting spray is a spray that helps to set the makeup on your face so it stays in place throughout the day. 

A lot of people think that setting sprays are only good for when you want to wear false eyelashes or some kind of eyeshadow that doesn’t move easily. However, this isn’t true at all! You can use setting sprays with any type of makeup product whether it’s foundation or lipstick—and they’ll work just as well!

Always take your makeup off at night, even if you’re tired or drunk. 

  •  You can use a makeup remover, but it may be better to use just water instead because they don’t work as well on waterproof products like eyeliner and mascara.
  • Don’t sleep in your makeup; this will make it difficult for the next morning when trying to remove all traces of it from your face (and body). Also avoid using makeup remover wipes on eyes or lips—this could irritate sensitive skin and cause more damage than good!

Even newbies can do great makeup.

Makeup is a great creative outlet. It’s fun to experiment with different looks and play around with makeup, especially when you’re just starting out. 

You can use makeup as an opportunity to express yourself by creating a unique look for yourself or for an event.

Makeup also gives you the power to add glamour in any situation—whether it’s at home, school or work; if your outfit isn’t quite right without it, then apply some mascara and bronzer!

It’s important that people know how much effort goes into doing well-executed makeup (and sometimes even more than that). 

In fact, many beginners end up giving up because they didn’t know what they were getting themselves into!


So, this was the step by step makeup tutorials for beginners. I hope this guide has helped you on your journey to better makeup! Remember: even if you’re a beginner, don’t be afraid to experiment with what works best for you. And remember that makeup is a tool, not an end goal—so don’t feel bad if things aren’t perfect right away. With practice and patience, anyone can learn how to do great makeup. Good luck!
