How to Apply Makeup in 10 Easy Steps

Step 1: Hydrating the Skin
Hydrating the skin is a simple, but very important, first step. It gives you the smooth and supple skin that is ideal for applying makeup. First spray clean skin with water or a spray fixative, then liberally apply moisturizer.

Step 2: Primer
Use a primer to prepare your skin for the concealer and foundation. Apply all over the face and neck. With a primer, makeup goes on better and lasts longer. Primers can also help to minimize pores.

Step 3: Concealer
Use concealer to cover problem areas on the skin such as redness, spots or blemishes. Pat onto the skin wherever needed. Concealers come in different tints. In this case, Gault uses a yellow-based concealer to even out the red areas on the model's face.

Step 4: Foundation
Select a foundation color that's as close as possible to your natural skin tone. Apply all over the face and blend into the neck. You can keep layering it but be sure that it's smoothly applied and well-blended. You want it to be invisible to the eye for a flawless, balanced finish.

Step 5: Contouring -- Highlighter and Bronzer
Highlighter and bronzer help contour the face to create definition. Bronzer should be a warm hue that's a bit darker than your natural skin tone. Highlighter is brighter. Sweep bronzer under the cheekbone and continue up along the hairline. Then apply highlighter on the cheekbone for instant killer cheekbones. You can help define your jaw by adding bronzer just beneath the jawline. Regardless of the feature you choose to enhance, be subtle.

Step 6: Blush
Blush gives you a nice, rosy glow. While smiling, apply blush to the apples of the cheeks and blend back toward the hairline. You don't want any noticeable splotches of makeup so blend well. Be sure to avoid applying blush below the cheekbone.

There are a number of gorgeous Barbie dolls that exist, many of them with dark skin and raven hair. Others that retain the original platinum blond Barbie look.

You can create Barbie-inspired volume by blowdrying with your head upside down with a large boar-bristle brush and setting your hair in large Velcro rollers for 20 minutes. The alternative is to take a large barrel curling iron to 2-inch sections of hair; hold the iron vertically to create waves that undulate loosely instead of tight spirals.
