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!


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


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


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


Mascara attracts attention to your eyes.


Wearing lipstick brings life to your face.


Bronzer brings a glow to your face.


¦ 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.


¦ 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.
