Make-up Secrets

 

Natural Makeup Look

This look will give you a natural glow without having to use any brushes at all! So if you’re looking out for something quick yet versatile then this is perfect for you!

 

Foundation
The best way to check which colour is right for you is to choose three shades of foundation, all of which you think are a pretty good match to your skin tone. Using the foundations, make three stripes on your forehead and check which one disappears. That one will be your perfect match.

Brows
To fill-in your brow, you will need either a light pencil or powder eye shadow and brush. Always remember to follow your natural brow shape with these 3 steps.Lipstick 2

  1. Put your eye pencil vertically alongside the outer edge of the bottom of your nose. The point where the tip of the pencil marks the beginning of your brow (which should also be about one inch above the inner corner of your eye). Using the eye pencil draw a vertical line to demarcate the start of each brow.
  2. Look straight ahead in the mirror. Line up the pencil with outer edge of your nostril and the outer edge of your iris. The place where the pencil crosses your brow is where your arch should peak. Mark it with a dot.
  3. Line up the pencil from the edge of your nostril to the outer corner of your eye. The place where the pencil crosses your outer brow is the place where it should end. Mark it with a dot.

Once filled-in, a top tip is to carefully apply clear mascara over your brows as this sets them beautifully and guarantees you fabulous looking brows all day long.

Lipstick
To get the perfect lip colour, you need to know your undertone. When choosing a new lipstick, rather than try the colour on the back of your hand, place a little colour onto your finger and hold it to your lips, looking in a mirror. This way, you’ll be able to see if the colour is right for you. When choosing your lip liner, try and match the colour as closely as you can to the shade of your lipstick, or alternatively go for a liner one shade darker.
