D.I.Y Makeup Tips:

If you are intending to do the makeup yourself, try the following tips.

  • Get a good concealer & foundation that is the right match for your skin – To check if the color matches your skin, tap some foundation on the side of the jaw and blend it using a few strokes, If it disappears, it means that the foundation is a good shade.
  • Concealing under eye circles or dark eye circles –Depending on the type of under eye or dark eye circles, use this as a guide.
    • If the under eye circles are more bluish, try to lighten them with a matte light peach shadow.
    • If the under eye circles are more greyish, try to lighten them with a matte soft pink shadow.
    • Then put on the foundation or concealer. This way, you can effectively ‘hide’ and blend the under eye circles.
  • Applying the concealer
    • Choose a concealer that is about 1 – 2 shades lighter than your tone. Do not get something too light or you might find yourself trying to blend the concealer in.
  • To lengthen the time for your foundation
    • Use a tissue and fold it. Gently pad on the foundation. This will remove excess oil and leaves pure pigment on the skin. In this way, your foundation can stay longer. Brush loose powder over the foundation to set.
  • Applying the blusher
    • Get a good blusher brush and apply the blush on the apple of your cheek. Pick the color and gently tap the powder on the apples of the cheek and slowly blending backwards towards the temple. Then use a clean sponge to blend to make the blush look real.
  • Applying the eye color
    • Choose 1 – 2 shades lighter for the color of your brow hairs. Using a darker color can make you look harsh.
    • Choose a light color to lift up your eyes. White is good. Use it on your brow bone and the inner and outer corners of the eyes. Then apply and blend your eye shadow color.
    • Use the mascara on the lashes to widen and ‘waken’ the eyes so that the eyes look bigger.
    • Use a shade that sets to give you a more natural look.
  • Applying lipstick
    • To make the lipstick last longer. Powder the lips first. Use the lip pencil to outline the whole lips and then apply the lip color, blot and reapply again. Apply a lip gloss in the middle of the bottom lip to make the lip look glossier.

You should be all set to look your best and be the limelight for your big day!
