Treating the face
LOOKING beautiful goes beyond mere dressing to include how you keep and maintain your skin. Besides its glow, the skin highlights a lady’s personality and this is the reason every lady should know her skin tone and the product that suits it.
This also transcends to the make-up products you use. Using the right skin tone product and complementing it with the right make up products gives you that awesome appearance that makes you the cynosure of all eyes.
In a step-by-step guide, Juliette Okoli, a professional makeup artist with Black Up beauty outfit, tells how any lady could get a perfect face highlights with the right range of products.
Complexion: Using a primer before foundation is key to having a flawless finish that lasts all day. Apply Primer to your t-zone — fore head, nose and chin.
Foundation: With a foundation brush, apply your foundation with even horizontal strokes starting from the centre of your head, moving towards the ears.
Powder: Set your foundation with our world famous powder. Apply the powder in circular motions across your face
Sublime Powder: This will give your skin a radiant soft and healthy glow. Apply lightly to t-zone, and cheekbones.
Eyes: With a large eye shadow brush, apply Mono eye shadow 03 all over eyelid before applying Mono no 36 to outer corners of the eyelid. Blend in the two for a perfect smokey eye. Use Mono eye shadow 01with a small eye shadow brush; apply it to inner corner of the eyes. Blend lightly to achieve the desired glow.
Eyebrow Pencil: Use light stokes of your pencil to trace out your eyebrows, arching it towards the middle. Use the radiance concealer on your lower brow line to highlight your brow with an angled brow brush.
Lips: Using a two-in-one product like Clarins Moisture Replenishing lip balm is a great help. This product serves as a lip liner and lipstick. Apply the lip balm then line your lips with the pencil. Next, apply lip colour all over the lips with lip brush, then smack the lips twice. Hey, you are on the go.
With a blush brush, smile then apply blush starting from the apple of the cheek towards the ear.
