10 Best Makeup Ideas To Try Out For Yourself

So let’s get started and explore the best makeup ideas you can try out yourself!

1. Outline Your Cat Eye

If you want to add a touch of glamor and drama to your eye makeup, nothing beats the classic cat eye.

This timeless look can be achieved by simply outlining the outer corner of your eye with a winged liner, but getting a flawless finish can be tricky. 

First, choose a liquid eyeliner with a fine tip that will allow you to create delicate lines and achieve precision.

Then, start by drawing the outline of your winged tip from the outer corner of your lash line towards the end of your eyebrow. 

Next, draw a thin line from the inner corner of your eye towards the outer corner, connecting it to the winged tip.

Fill in any gaps with short, controlled strokes, paying special attention to the upper lashes to make them appear thicker. 

Finally, use a cotton swab dipped in makeup remover to clean up any excess product or mistakes. 

2. Twinkly Eyes

To create pretty twinkly eyes, start by applying a light shimmery eye shadow to the inner corners of your eyes. This will create a brightening effect that makes your eyes look more awake and alert. 

For added sparkle, dab a bit of glitter eye shadow on top of the shimmery shadow. Next, line your upper lash line with a liquid liner, adding a flick at the outer corner to elongate your eyes. 

Finish off with a coat of mascara on your upper lashes. Make sure to use a fluffy brush to blend any harsh lines and remove any excess product with a cotton swab. Gorgeous!

3. All Matte Makeup

Achieving a flawless matte finish for your makeup can change the look and feel of your beauty routine.

It’s essential to start by applying a light coverage foundation with a matte finish that compliments your skin tone. 

Set it with a translucent powder, focusing on the areas where you tend to get oily, to ensure long wear.

Use neutral shades to contour and highlight your face, focusing on the angles and curves to achieve a more sculpted look.

Next, use a brow pencil or gel to shape and fill in your brows, ensuring a natural finish.

For your eyes, use an eyeshadow palette with various shades of neutral and brown tones, allowing you to create a sleek and sophisticated look. 

Apply a winged eyeliner using a liquid liner and coat your lashes with a tube of mascara to give your eyes a pop of color.

Finish your all matte look with a powder blush applied with a fluffy brush to give you a natural flush on your cheeks. 

4. Pastel Makeup

Pastel makeup is perfect if you want an understated look with a hint of color. Use a fluffy brush to apply loose powder all over the face, focusing on areas where oil tends to build up like the T-zone.

Use a cream blush in a neutral tone to add a subtle flush of color to the cheeks, and define the eyebrows with a brow pencil or brow gel in a matching shade.

Finish off the look with a neutral lip color, or a pop of pastel for a fun twist. 

5. Monochromatic Makeup

Monochromatic makeup is a stunning look that involves using the same color palette for your eyes, cheeks, and lips.

It’s a cohesive look that is easy to achieve and perfect for those who want a polished appearance. To create this look, pick one color that flatters your skin tone and gather all the necessary products in that color range. 

Start by applying a light wash of eyeshadow over your lids and then add depth with a darker shade in the outer corner.

Sweep the blush over your cheeks, focusing on the apples, and blend the same shade onto your eyelids. Finish with a coat of lipstick in a similar shade or slightly lighter for a cohesive look. 

Remember to use a fluffy brush to blend excess product and keep the focus on the flush of color. 

6. Glowing Skin

When it comes to creating a healthy and radiant complexion, makeup can be your best friend.

The key to achieving a glowing effect is to start with a good skincare routine and then enhance your skin with a few makeup products. 

Begin by applying a light-coverage foundation or a skin tint that matches your skin tone. Use a fluffy brush to blend it onto your skin, paying close attention to areas that need extra coverage. 

Next, add a flush of color to your cheeks with a cream or powder blush. Apply it to the apples of your cheeks and blend it outwards towards your temples. 

To highlight your skin, use a liquid illuminator or highlighter on the high points of your face, such as your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and your brow bone.

Finally, set your makeup with a fine loose powder and use a cotton swab to remove any excess product. 

7. All-over shimmer

If you want to add some sparkle and shine to your makeup look, an all-over shimmer is a great option. To achieve this look, start by applying a light coverage foundation or skin tint to even out your skin tone. 

Next, use a fluffy brush to dust a loose powder with a shimmer finish all over your face. This will give you a subtle glow without looking too over-the-top.

If you want to take things up a notch, you can also add some shimmer to your eyelids, cheeks, and lips. 

For your eyes, apply a neutral shade of eyeshadow all over your lid, then use a small brush to add a shimmery shadow to the inner corners and outer corners of your eyes.

For your cheeks, apply a cream or powder blush in a shade that complements your skin tone, and then use a highlighter to add some extra radiance. 

Finally, finish off your look with a lip color that has a hint of shimmer, like a gloss or metallic lipstick. 

8. More Glitter, Please

Glitter is a fun and easy way to add some pizzazz to any look. For a fun and playful look, try applying glitter eyeshadow to your lids.

You can create a full-on glitter look, or simply add a pop of sparkle to your usual eyeshadow. Another great option is to use glitter as eyeliner. 

You can create a sleek and bold winged liner using glitter, or simply line your upper lashes with a touch of sparkle.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with different colors and textures of glitter as well. Just remember to apply glitter strategically and with precision, to avoid spreading it all over your face. 

And don’t forget to set your glitter with a setting spray, to keep it in place all day or night long. 

9. Glossy Lips

To achieve glossy lips, it is important to start with a smooth base. Use a lip scrub to remove any flaky skin and apply a lip balm to moisturize your lips. Next, choose a lip liner in a shade that compliments your lipstick color. 

Start by filling in your lips with the liner to create a base. Then, apply your favorite glossy lipstick with a lip brush or straight from the bullet. 

For added dimension, you can also add a touch of gloss just to the center of your lips for a pouty effect.

Remember to blot any excess product with a tissue to prevent smudging. Glossy lips are perfect for a night out or a special occasion and can be paired with a neutral eye makeup look for maximum impact.

10. Pop Of Color

A pop of color is a great way to add some fun and personality to your daily makeup routine.

When using a pop of color, it’s important to keep it balanced with the rest of your makeup so it doesn’t overwhelm your look. 

One easy way to do this is by adding a bold lip color to a more neutral eye makeup look, or vice versa.

Another option is to use a bright eyeshadow shade on just the outer corner of your lid or in your lower lash line. 

You can also use a pop of color as a blush by applying a small amount of a bright shade to the apples of your cheeks.

When choosing a pop of color, consider your skin tone and what shades will complement it best. 


So there you have it, 10 make up ideas to try. Remember to experiment and remember make up can enhance existing beauty. Enjoy!
