 Day Makeup Instructions

Steps in brief:

1. Test the foundation on your cheekbones to know if you are using the correct
color.
2. Use your foundation brush to apply the foundation. This will ensure that no
streaks are visible on your face. Don’t apply a pink or yellow toned foundation to
give color to the skin, the foundation is only the basis to any make-up.
3. Use cover stick that is 1-2 shades lighter than your skin. This can be applied over
the whole eyelid and also on blemishes and acne scars. Green cover stick can be
used to cover any red areas on the skin. Just make sure that you blend the cover
stick well.
4. Loose transparent powder is the best to use. Avoid any powder that has a glow,
because this will create a wet look. Concentrate especially on the eyelids and the
lips. The main purpose of the powder is to ensure that the eye shadow and lipstick
stays on for longer.
5. Take an eyebrow / eye liner pencil and dip it into some brown or black eye
shadow and fill in your eyebrows. Then you will take your highlighting brush and
dip it into beige, gold or white eye shadow color and apply this color all over
your eyelid. Then you will take your eye shadow applicator brush and dip it into
the required eye shadow color that you want to apply. This color you will apply in
the fold of your eye, making sure that you follow the natural shape of your eye.
6. Then you can apply eye liner on top of your eyelashes in a very soft line and
blend it in very well just to soften it up. You can use a brown or black eye liner or
otherwise you can use any other color that will compliment the eye shadow color
that you have on.

7. Apply 1 or 2 coats of mascara onto your eyelashes in zigzag movements. This
zigzag movement will ensure that your eyelashes are separated from each other
and it will also make your eyelashes appear longer.
8. Then you can apply blush- one with a glow or either one that has a matte finished
look. The blush must be applied softly to the cheeks or just underneath your
cheekbones and it must be blended in well, otherwise it will look harsh and
unnatural. A creamy blush has the tendency to smudge and it can also create a wet
look.
9. Line your lips with a soft and natural lip liner pencil and blend this lip liner in by
using a cotton bud and moving it softly over that line. Then you will take your
lipstick brush and fill in your lips with a soft peachy or pinkish color. Finish the
look off by applying lip gloss to your lips.
