Use a light coverage foundation or, even better, a tinted moisturiser for your base. If you have any problem areas i.e. redness, pimples, darkness under your eyes, use a liquid concealer that is 2-3 shades lighter than your foundation or tinted moisturiser. For a flawless and youthful look apply both with your fingertips. The natural oils from your hand will make your base look as natural as possible while still giving you a base to work on. Apply a translucent powder (powder with no colour) over your whole face with a big powder brush to set your base.
We all love smokey eyes for an evening event – but stay away from using black shadow to create the drama. Instead go for a gold or peach iridescent eyeshadow cream or powder across your whole eyelid. Then take a brown or, if you really want some colour, a purple or grey to the outer corner of your upper eyelid in the crease of you lid. Blend this into the base colour with a small eyeshadow brush to give you that cat eye look. Finish with a black or dark brown gel eyeliner or gel pencil across your top lid only, as close to your lash line as possible. For a softer look take your eyeshadow brush and blend the line to soften it. This also takes the pressure off making the line too perfect as this is difficult to achieve without practise. For added drama, take the line out from your eyelid slightly to extend the length of your eye. Blend this into your darker colour at the outer corner of your eye. Finish off with some false eyelashes, we recommend KISS Lashes two coats of mascara on your upper and lower lashes. Remember to let the first coat dry before applying the second to make your eyes really pop!
Add some colour to your cheeks for a fresh and healthy look. Using a smaller powder brush, get some of your blusher onto your brush, remembering to shake off the excess before you apply. Smile as big you can in the mirror and apply your blusher to the apple of your cheeks – the round part when you smile. For lips, keep the colour nude or very soft pink and use a gloss. For added staying power, use a lip pencil in light pink and colour in your whole upper and lower lip. Then apply your gloss on top.
To finish, use a shimmery highlighter in a nude colour and sweep over your cheekbones and just below your eyebrow to complete your look.
