If applying foundation is not your thing, you can always go for a tinted sunscreen. Applying this product has two benefits - it will help you provide decent coverage while protecting your skin. Go for a matte finish sunscreen so that your skin doesn’t look oily.

When you’re just getting started with bronzing, don’t go all Kim K on your face. Bronzing was done in order to give you a sun-kissed glow, and that’s how you should start as well. A healthy bronzed glow is always in vogue and looks SO pretty. Sweep the bronzer on your temples, along the sides of the face, and right under the cheekbones in a ‘C’ formation. Just make sure to not apply it on the center of your face as too much of the product will make you look older.
Girls, it’s time to multitask with shimmery powders. As a beginner you obviously won’t want to use a lot of products, that’s why a shimmer blush would suffice. Light-reflecting powders can be used to highlight your cheeks and give them a nice rosy touch. You can also use the powder on your eyelids if you want a bit of shimmer. One less product in your bag for touch-ups - doesn’t that sound amazing?!

No look is complete without a bold red pout. The perfect shade of red lipstick can make or break your look, ladies, and getting this look isn’t that difficult. Always apply your lipstick from the center of your lips and then move outward. This helps make the application smooth and creaseless.
If you are one of those girls who just can’t understand how to define your brows, use a brow mascara. Yes, brow mascara is a thing and you can easily apply it and make your eyebrows appear thicker and perfect. You don’t need to have a separate brow kit, how cool!
