Step 1: Moisturise
The weather is getting cooler and the air, drier. Put some moisture back into your delicate skin with a light, non-comedogenic moisturiser. Dab small dots over your face and with a gentle hand, rub it into your skin until absorbed.
Step 2: Primer
A primer will get your skin ready for any makeup you’ll be applying, and help to keep it on longer by smoothening your pores and giving you a silky smooth finish in the end.
Step 3: Base
Whether you prefer a light BB cream, CC cream or a full face of foundation, go ahead and apply a base of your choice over your primer. Make sure that the tone matches your neck for an even finish. You can apply your base using either a brush or your fingertips––the perfect way is whatever you find easy!
Step 4: Concealer
Apply concealer to cover any blemishes or discoloration on your face. Ensure that the concealer matches your foundation, but under the eyes you can use a lighter tone to give it a lift while also masking dark circles.
Step 5: Eyes
Take your favourite eyeshadow palette. Begin with a neutral brown tone and apply it in the upper eye crease to create an even base. Then go in with a darker shade of brown in the crease and blend until it is smooth. Then choose your accent colour (we recommend a shimmering metallic tone for evening) and apply in the middle of your eyelid. That’s your eyeshadow done!
Finish with a dark liner and mascara for a beautiful smokey eye.
Step 6: Lipstick
There’s no right or wrong when it comes to lip colour, so choose a shade you fancy and carefully apply it on the upper and lower lip. Line your lips with a lip liner and blot onto a tissue to keep the colour intact for hours.
Step 7: Set
Grab some setting powder and dab it over your T-zone: forehead, chin and nose. Gently apply some powder under your eyes too and it’ll stop your undereye concealer from creasing.
