MAKE-UP makes us look and feel good. However, many women who want to make a

good impression end up looking overdone. You don’t want to be that woman!

MAKE-UP MUST-HAVES PRIMER

A primer hides flaws on your face and is always applied before putting on a foundation.

FOUNDATION

Foundation is meant to even the skin tone and is not meant to cover imperfections.

BLUSH

A right blush for your skin tone will bring a natural and healthy glow to your face.

MASCARA

Mascara attracts attention to your eyes.

LIPSTICK

Wearing lipstick brings life to your face.

BRONZER

Bronzer brings a glow to your face.

MAKE-UP DOS

¦ Use a foundation that is one tone darker than your actual skin tone.

¦ Apply foundation on your eyelids up to the brow. This will give your entire face a smooth appearance.

¦ Apply your eyeliner as close to the lash line as possible.

¦ Do apply foundation before putting on your concealer.

¦ Ignore make-up trends and keep it simple when it comes to your make-up.

¦ You should put bronzer on your neck, face and chest to even out your skin tone.

¦ When you are applying blush, first smile, then start on the apple of the cheek, mix the blush back towards the top of the ear, then down toward the jaw.

MAKE-UP DON’TS

¦ Don’t use a concealer that is too light or too dark.

¦ Don’t overdo mascara; clumped mascara is distracting and messy.

¦ Don’t overdo your eyebrows. Brows that are drawn on, pencil-thin, overly sparse, strongly arched, or too thick can make you look older.

¦ Don’t go to sleep with your makeup on. Foundation and concealer can clog your pores and cause spots on your face.

¦ Mascara can make your eyelashes fall out and become weak. Don’t wear too much make-up.

¦ You must avoid putting concealer on your eyelids as a base for your make-up, it can cause your eye make-up to crease.
