Style Your Hair First

Make sure you style your hair and put on your top (if it’s a pullover top) prior to applying your makeup. This will prevent you from messing up all of your hard work.

Apply Vaseline

If you are applying face paint, try applying a very thin coat of vaseline to your face before applying the makeup. Face paint can be difficult to remove, and the vaseline will help make the removal process easier.

Start with Thin Layers

If you’re placing different colors on top of one another, apply a thin coat of makeup at a time and let it dry completely before applying the next layer. This will ensure your makeup looks nice and neat.

Create Texture

You can use makeup to create texture. If you use a brushing motion, your makeup will be smoother. However, if you dapple on your makeup, you’ll get a bumpier texture. Play around with how you apply your makeup to discover different textures.

Set Your Makeup

Don’t forget to set your makeup. You wouldn’t want all that hard work going to waste. Use a setting spray to ensure that your makeup stays in place all night long.

If you don’t want to buy additional makeup, you can use what you have on hand. I recommend searching YouTube for simple makeup tutorials that you can do with just a little bit of makeup. Some tutorials you can check out are:
