A Detailed Guide on How to Apply Makeup on Someone Else

Step 1: Identify Face Type

There are six different face types: oval, square, round, long, triangular, and diamond. Before putting on makeup, it is vital to identify the person’s face type.

There are different face shapes, and each one requires a different approach to makeup. For example, those with an oval face shape can pretty much wear any kind of makeup, while those with a round face shape should use contouring products to create the illusion of an oval face.

Step 2: Apply Moisturizer

The first step to applying makeup on someone else is to apply moisturizer. Moisturizers will help the skin look even and hydrated, which will affect the outcome of the makeup. Apply a small amount of moisturizer onto a cotton pad or ball and swipe it across your person’s face. Do not rub in circular motions as this can cause more irritation.

Step 3: Apply Primer

Primers will improve the quality of your makeup and hold the product in place for more extended periods. Some primers have been made specifically for those with dry or sensitive skin types, so choose one best suits your person’s needs. Of course, how much primer you use depends on your preference, but a little goes a long way.

Step 4: Foundation

Many people are surprised by how much of a difference makeup base makes to your final look. It is essential to consider that this will make up most of what people see on your person’s face. If you want to make sure you are correct with the foundation shade, test it out first on the jawline or neck area, where it won’t be seen as much. Applying foundation will vary depending on the types you use, so follow any instructions provided in these product manuals for best results.

Step 5: Concealer

Concealer is essential for hiding blemishes and dark circles under the eyes before applying eye shadow or mascara. Different formulas and shades of concealer can be used depending on the coverage you want and where you plan to put it. Apply concealer under eyes will vary depending on your person’s routine. Still, a simple rule of thumb is using a shade lighter than usual so that the placement looks natural.

Step 6: Powder

The powder can be used in place of or with the foundation for those who dislike the heavier feeling makeup base has. How much powder to use depends on how light-coverage you prefer your makeup application. It is also advised that after applying powder, wait about fifteen minutes before proceeding onto other steps such as blush or eye shadow because powder tends to emphasize dry patches when applied too soon after moisturizer and primer.

Step 7: Blush

The best way to apply blush is to use a light hand, as too much can make your face look red and out of balance. The shape of your face will also affect how you apply blush – those with oval shapes can wear any blush, whereas those with heart-shaped faces should use a more angled brush and stay away from circular motions.

Step 8: Eye Shadow

There are many ways to apply eye shadow, but for beginners, a simple technique is to use a light shade as a base all over the eyelid, followed by a darker color in the crease and outer corner. However, be careful not to apply too much eyeshadow, as this can quickly make someone look like they have raccoon eyes. Start with tiny amounts and build up if needed.

Step 9: Eyeliner

Eyeliner can be applied in various ways, from simple cat eyes to full-on glam. Applying eyeliner for beginners may seem daunting, but it is easier than it looks. The most important thing to remember is to start slow and building up the intensity if needed. When starting, use a light hand and make sure the line is as close to the lash line as possible for the most natural look.

Step 10: Mascara

Mascara can be the finishing touch that makes or breaks your look, so it must be applied correctly. How to apply mascara properly will depend on the type of mascara you are using. Still, a general rule of thumb is to wiggle the wand at the root and base of your person’s lashes first to create a solid foundation before moving on to the rest of the lashes. How much mascara to use depends on preference, but it should be applied in thin layers rather than one thick coat.

Step 11: Lipstick/gloss

Applying lipstick (or whichever type of lip color you prefer) can make or break your look because this is what people will see first. Applying lipstick will vary depending on your person’s preferences, but once again, a light hand is essential when trying out new shades and techniques. Use a brush for applying lipstick if you want more control and precision with the application process, and keep lips moisturized beforehand to prevent them from looking dry.

Applying makeup on someone else can be a daunting task, but it can be done in no time with these easy steps! First, remember to start with a light hand and build up the intensity of each product as needed- this will ensure that your person’s makeup looks natural and not overdone. Then, have fun and experiment with different shades and techniques to find what works best for them!

Additional Tips

  • If you are using a new brush for the first time, test it on your arm to ensure that it does not cause any irritation.
  • Always start with a light layer of foundation and build it up if needed. Too much foundation can look cakey and unnatural.
  • Use a translucent powder to set the foundation and help keep it in place.
  • Apply blush sparingly, starting at the apples of the cheeks and blending outwards.
  • Be careful not to overdo the eyeliner or mascara. A little goes a long way!
  • When applying lipstick, use a lip liner to define the shape of your lips and then fill them in with lipstick.
  • To remove makeup, use a gentle cleanser and a soft cloth or cotton balls.
  • Do not apply makeup on someone else if you have not been trained to do so.
  • Do not apply too much pressure when applying makeup, as this can cause skin irritation.

Applying makeup to someone else can be a daunting task, but with a few simple tips, you can do it like a pro!

What Is the Best Way to Apply Foundation, Concealer, etc.?

One of the best ways to apply foundation, concealer, etc., is with a slightly damp sponge or brush. Using a sponge will give your makeup application a smoother look and a more natural appearance. If you’re applying foundation with a brush, make sure you choose one with soft bristles and lightly dampen it before using.

Use Foundation for Makeup

If you want to put a blusher on someone else’s face- whether they are your child or partner- then use either your small stippling brush (for powder) or your fingers (for cream).

To apply eye shadow on someone else, put some product onto the back of your hand and dip an eyeshadow blending brush into it. Sweep the brush over theThen, sweep starting at the lash line and moving up to the crease.

For mascara applications, use a wand applicator that has been coated with the product. Start at the base of the lashes and wiggle the wand back and forth as you move up to the tips.


I hope you have read the article on how to apply makeup on someone else. There are many ways to apply makeup to someone else. The best way is to look at their features and see how you can accentuate them with the right colors, textures, etc.

For example, if they have a round face, consider using matte shades for contouring or bronzer; if they have an oval-shaped face, then use brighter highlight colors like pink or peach instead of golds because it will make their cheekbones more pronounced; if they have a square shape nose avoid making your nose appear too wide by applying powder blush over liquid blush (but not concealer); if they’re wearing glasses try adding mascara before putting on any other makeup.

Consider taking these tips into account when applying beauty products onto another person’s skin! It’ll be easier than you think and you’ll teach them if they’re interested. All the best!
