Simple yet natural-looking and long-lasting makeup is the dream of every beauty enthusiast. And even beginners can learn how to do it if they follow the rule 242.

Experts say that although this rule can hardly be called something revolutionary, it will help you create a flawless bow in 10 minutes. OBOZ.UA looked into the details of this method.

The numbers in its name indicate the number of products that you have to apply to your face to get flawless makeup. Let's start counting from the top: 2 products for the eyes, 4 for the skin, and 2 more for the lips. Beauty bloggers say that this is the optimal minimum that will provide the best result. And at the same time, it won't force you to get up very early in the morning to do a full makeup.

Although the choice of specific products for the 242 method depends on personal tastes and characteristics, it is usually based on a standard set of products. For example, neutral eyeshadow and mascara are needed for the eyes, base, concealer, bronzer or highlighter, and blush for the skin, and pencil and gloss for the lips.

Like any makeup, Method 242 starts with moisturizer and SPF. This step is not included in the main scheme because it is basic care. Next, start applying skin tone products. Start by using foundation, then treat problem areas with concealer, apply bronzer or highlighter to create volume, and finish with a drop of blush. Don't try to create full coverage for your daily makeup, just focus on evening out your complexion.

Next, make up your eyes. Take one ready-made palette and give preference to natural shades for everyday use. You can also use a bronzer instead of eyeshadow. Finish your eye makeup with your favorite mascara.

Make up your lips last. First, create a contour with a natural shade pencil, and then apply a transparent or translucent gloss. Ideally, choose a product with a care component that will also moisturize the skin on the lips throughout the day.

Yes, method 242 leaves little room for creativity in makeup. But it will help beginners get the hang of it and become a convenient template for those who prefer sleep to creating a creative look in the morning.
