A picture-perfect face is every woman’s goal. Use these helpful tricks from a pro whose brushes have touched almost every local celeb. Make-up artist to the stars gives you easy tips for a perfect make-up look:

  1. “The first step to th perfect canvas is primer, apply it just after you moisturise to prepare to smooth on your foundation.”
  2. “ Every women has their foundation preference. I enjoy liquid ones because they are easy to apply and you can build the coverage on the areas you need it most.”
  3. “Highlighters are a woman’s best friend. Using a blush brush, lightly dust it onto your cheeks bones and down the centre of your nose. It will give a lovely fresh glow.”
  4. “The main reason women use mascara is to lengthen their lashes, apply two coats of your favourite lengthening and volumising mascara.”
  5. “Seal the look with your favourite lip colour or lipgloss. I personally prefer gloss because it doesn't build u and is great for every day use. Then you're ready to go!”
