Top 10 Tips

  • Always start with eyes and use an eye-primer as a base for eye shadow.
  • Apply your foundation or concealer after your eye makeup otherwise you’ll end up wiping it off along with any loose eye shadow powder.
  • Don’t overload on powder whether for eyes, brows or contouring. Use the back of your hand like a palette for your brush, tapping off any excess.
  • For smokey eyes use three different shades blending them together with the darkest in the crease, corner and under the eye.
  • Use lash curlers, they really do  lift and open up the eyes. Then apply mascara from the base to the tip using a zig zag motion.
  • If using false eyelashes make sure the glue is a bit tacky and apply downwards into the lash line rather than the eyelid.
  • Always, always blend whether for eye-shadows, highlighter, concealer or face contouring.
  • To create the illusion of full lips, use a light nude shade in the centre and a darker shade on the outside. Never go over the lip line.
  • Add a dab of highlighter to emphaise the cupid’s bow above the lips.
  • Less is always more for any makeup. Start with less and only add more, if required, for example to glamorise day into evening makeup.
