Get your make-up to last the day.

  • After cleansing, toning and moisturising your face, neck and chest area sparingly apply foundation and blend using a non-latex sponge, not forgetting to cover your eyelids and under your eyes. The foundation will act as a primer for your eye make-up.
  • Follow with your illuminating concealer to cover any blemishes and dark shadows that are still visible.
  • Use a large, soft powder brush to dust a translucent powder over your face and neck.
  • Sweep a slightly shimmery highlighting hue of eyeshadow to the brow bone (under your brows) and in the inner corners of your eyes.
  • With a brow pencil that’s a shade lighter than your hair colour, fill in brows using feather-like strokes following the natural direction in which your hair grows.
  • To define the eye, line your upper lash line with liquid eyeliner.
  • Pump up your lashes with a couple of coats of mascara, using one that addresses your eyebrows’ needs.
  • Sweep the apple of your cheeks with a bronzer blush.
  • For colour that lasts, apply a lip stain before applying your favourite gloss or lipstick.
