Wearing different make-up for different occasions not only makes you look amazing, it will make you feel great too. Yet for many women, make-up application can appear to be complicated and some feel more comfortable to repeat what they’ve always known. Now is your chance to take a fresh look at your make-up. Here are some tips for make-up for different occasions, including tips to get your skin just right before colours.
Make sure your face is fresh and moisturised before put any product on it. To make sure your make-up lasts all day, add primer with your fingers. If you have oily skin, try a 2-in-1 primer that will matt your skin.
Foundation will give you clear, flawless skin, making it the perfect palette on which to add colour later. Check you have the correct foundation colour by testing the foundation along your jawline in several lighting conditions. The foundation that disappears onto your skin is your perfect match.
For a natural look that also draws attention to your eyes, apply concealer in the shape of a triangle below your eyes.
Apply your foundation with a flat/fluffy applicator brush or a sponge. Start from the centre of your face and blend it outwards. A duo fibre synthetic brush, used in a circular motion, will buff the foundation really well into the skin and blend it evenly all over the face.
Add foundation to your neck area so that your face does not look different to your neck.
Set your foundation with powder. If you have a dry skin, apply powder only to the areas that are inclined to get shiny. For those with oily skin, concentrate on adding powder on the t- zone.
Now your base is ready, it’s time to define and enhance your beautiful features. A high-quality eyeliner and mascara is worth the investment as it won’t smear or smudge.
Using an eyeliner, line your upper eyelid and the outer corners of your lower lash-line. Avoid harsh lines by using a brush to smudge the product.
Applying mascara will instantly open up your eyes and make you look more awake and vibrant.
You can add a hint of a neutral shade of eyeshadow to your eyelids or a choose of colours.
Add structure to your face with defined eyebrows. On trend are dark, well-defined eyebrows. If your eyebrows are sparse, use an eyebrow pencil that closely matches your colour to fill them in. Use short strokes to create small “hairs” in the gaps.
