19 Pics of how women do their makeup vs a professional

Putting on makeup isn’t easy, particularly if you aren’t professionally trained. You need to learn how to pick the right shade of foundation, apply the right amount of blush, and use eyeliner all by yourself. Honestly, it’s a tricky and confusing process.

Fortunately, one makeup artist shared her tips and tricks on how women should do their makeup. Julia Ismailova, a Russian makeup artist, even took before and after photos to help women understand makeup application better.

1. The naked skin

You don’t need to wear heavy makeup just to hide imperfections. It will just leave you unrecognizable. Instead, use makeup to delicately hide skin blemishes and achieve a more even skin complexion.

With filled in brows and darker lips, this woman is ready to party on a Friday night. It’s amazing how the right makeup can make a woman feel more confident.

3. Metamorphosis

This woman is 24 years old. Wearing heavy makeup made her look several years older. The lighter lip color, hint of blush, and subtle hint of color on her eyelids made her face look fresher and younger.

4. A fresh look

The woman chose the right colors for her. However, the arrows were a bit overwhelming for her face. The matte lipstick also made her face look dull.

5. No drama

Cat eyes can add drama to the face. Unfortunately, the technique doesn’t work for everyone. For this woman, the subtle eyeliner worked better.

The first thing the makeup artist changed was the woman’s eyebrows. Truly, making it lighter and less sharp made her face look more softer.

9. Quirky personality

While the natural brows were adorable, cleaning them up made a huge difference on her look. Taking away the red hues on her eyes and adding a hint of blush on her cheeks added instant freshness on her face.

12. Sultry look

The smokey eye makeup worked really well on this woman. Before, it only added drama to her eyes. The artist’s version, on the other hand, made the woman’s eye color pop.
