]The first lesson is about the basis of makeup: moisturizing procedure and applying foundation.
According to Wikipedia, Moisturizers or moisturizers are complex mixtures of chemical agents specially designed to make the external layers of the skin softer and more pliable, by increasing its hydration (water content) by reducing evaporation.
Dry skin is caused by two factors: One is the damage to the skin’s protective barrier and thus excessive water loss through the skin, and the second is a reduction in the concentration of the skin’s water-holding sugar and protein molecules.
Many moisturizing creams contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), which are fruit- and milk-based acids that help to remove the dull layer of surface skin and expose fresh skin below. AHAs can reduce the appearance of pores and fine wrinkles. If you have sensitive skin, you may wish to avoid these products since they can cause breakouts.
If you have sensitive skin you should look for hypo-allergenic products, which are usually free of perfumes and dyes that can cause skin irritation. If you go out in the sun daily, it’s a good idea to choose a moisturizer containing a sunscreen. The moisturizer should be applied to the face in upward strokes.
Avoid moisturizer with fragrance and preservatives. While buying the moisturizer you should keep the climate of your area in your mind too. If the humidity is very low in your area, look for a moisturizer with glycerin, mineral oil etc. If you live in a humid area, you may well be satisfied with just a lotion.
It is always best to go for a moisturizer that is made up of natural ingredients. At the same time, make sure that it has sunscreen and other important ingredients as well, to make your skin smooth and supple.

The Second Step in Your Flawless Makeup Is Applying Foundation.
Foundation is a flesh-toned cosmetic applied to the face to create an even, uniform color to the complexion, and, sometimes, to change the natural skin tone. Foundation applied to the body is generally referred to as body paint, according to Wikipedia.com.
If you have just a few blemishes, then by all means use a liquid or cream foundation. Generally, cream foundations tend to have more coverage.
Cream foundations are ideal for dry skin. These are usually creamy and offer excellent coverage to the skin. Generally, cream foundations are known for their heavier coverage and more intense moisturizing properties.
Mousse or whipped foundation is easier to apply in thin layers than liquid makeup, so you have more control. Mousse makeup is liquid makeup with air whipped in, making it lighter and smoother. It comes in a spray or aerosol-type can, like whipped cream.
The best way to apply foundation makeup is with a foundation brush. By using a foundation brush you can apply your makeup more evenly. Start at the center of your face, Which is usually the forehead or nose and work your way outwards. This creates a more flawless and natural look since most people need more coverage in the middle.
Apply foundation in natural light. Applying your makeup near a window will help you see how your foundation is going on and help you make sure that you’re applying it evenly. If you aren’t able to apply your foundation near a window, at least be sure to test it to make sure the application looks good.
