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.
