Prep Your Skin Well with Skincare
The first step that you have to do is to prepare your skin. This has the function of moistening and hydrating your skin so your makeup will stick well on the skin. Especially, in the fall season, your skin tends to get dry because of the cold weather. Besides that, skincare also has the function to protect your skin from chemical makeup that can cause acne or skin breakouts.

But you don’t have to worry, we will give you a tip on choosing the right skincare product based on your skin type. Believe me, wearing skincare before makeup will make your makeup flawless.
Okay, for people who have oily skin, you may choose a product that has a watery and light texture that can easily absorb into your skin. Meanwhile, if your skin type is dry, you can prefer a product that has a creamy and thick texture to moisten your skin well. After using the skincare, you have to wait for around 15-20 minutes to make sure the product absorbs and works.
Primer to Keep Your Makeup Flawless
Using skincare is not enough to make your makeup flawless. You need the other help from another product like using a primer. For some people, using primer doesn’t important and doesn’t give any effect. But actually, it has a lot of benefits like making your makeup flawless and fixing your skin problem. That’s why choosing a primer based on your skin type is very important to get the maximum result.
Starting with people who have dry skin! for this skin type, we recommend you try a primer that has a gel or cream texture that can give hydration to your skin. Then, focus on applying the product to the area that is easy to get cracking. Furthermore, if you have oily skin, you can use a primer that has a silicone texture to blur your big pores and hold the oil on your skin.
Use Foundation Based on Your Skin Type to Prevent The Crack
Next is wearing a complexion product. If you have uneven skin, this product can be a solution for you! Yes, we call it a foundation. Foundation has coverage that can even your skin tone and hides the blemishes on your skin. But this product has a lot of types that you can adjust with your skin type and your needs.
Wear a matte finish foundation if your skin type is oily because it won’t make your makeup greasy even though you wear it all day long. Then, if you have dry skin, you can prefer a dewy finish foundation to keep the hydration on your skin and prevent cracky makeup. Meanwhile, for the coverage, you can adjust it to your need. Don’t forget to blend the product with a beauty sponge or a brush to get a flawless look.
Hide The Blemishes on Your Skin by Using Concealer
Feeling not confident or insecure because of having a lot of blemishes that can be covered with foundation? Maybe, concealer can be your rescue for this problem! Yes, concealer has a higher coverage over the foundation, this is why it can cover your blemishes very well. But there are two types of concealer that you have to know.
First, cream concealer has a cream texture with higher coverage, but using this product will make your makeup look extra and feels heavy on your skin. Then, there is a liquid concealer that has a liquid texture with a natural finish and feels light on the skin. For this makeup, you can use both of these, so adjust it with your needs and favorite.
After choosing the right concealer for you, continue to apply the product to your skin. Make sure you only use it on the area that needs extra coverage like acne, dark spot, or dark circle. Furthermore, blend it slowly using your fingers, a beauty sponge, or a brush.
Wear Cream Contour for Bring Back Your Face Dimension
After using the foundation and the concealer, I believe your face looks flat now because it loses its dimension. Therefore, you need a contour to bring it back to make your makeup look natural. But contour is divided into two types, there are cream contour and powder contour. For preventing cracky makeup, we recommend you use cream contour.
Don’t forget to choose the shade 1-2 below your skin tone to give a natural finish. Then, if you’ve done choosing the right contour for you, you can continue to apply the product. Use under the cheekbone to make your cheeks thin, jawline to give a V-shaped face effect, hairline to make your face small, and last on your nose to make a pointy nose look.
Cream Blush to Give Blushy Cheeks Effect

Same as the contour, we also want you to use a cream blush for this makeup. Because avoiding using powder products will prevent cracky makeup and also it will give a natural finish.
For the color of the blush, you can prefer a color that won’t make you look tacky like nude, coral, or peach. Even though we want this makeup to be glam, but doesn’t mean you have to choose a bold color. Furthermore, apply the product on the apple of your cheeks and blend it with a beauty sponge or brush until it looks merges on your skin.
Set The Base Makeup Using Loose Powder
