Lash Curler – curling the lashes is crucial for accentuating the eyes. Start as close to the root as possible and curl two to three times, each time moving the curler a little way up the lashes.
Primer – This acts as an undercoat, providing a base for foundation and making sure it lasts longer.
Loose Powder – This removers excess oil from the skin and gives a velvety finish. Lightly dust over the face, paying special attention to areas prone to oiliness, such as the chin, forehead, and tip of the nose. If your skin is very dry, there is no need to apply powder.
Tweezers – Well-groomed brows frame the face and give your look a sophisticated polish. Tweeze and stray hairs early in the day to allow any redness to fade.
Mascara – Apply to curled lashes, to lengthen and define them, building up volume with extra coats.
Concealer and/or Foundation – If your skin has few blemishes and an even tone, it is not necessary to use foundation. Simply apply concealer where needed. If you want more coverage, apply a light layer of foundation, blending well along the hairline and jawline. You can build up coverage where necessary with more foundation.
Highlighter – Mix with foundation to give luminosity to the skin, or apply it alone to accentuate features such as cheekbones.
Brow Powder – Use to make brows look fuller and to strengthen color. Work from the arch toward the outer corner, as this is where brows tend to be thinner. You can then use it on the inner half of the brow if necessary.
Blush/Bronzer – By using both, you can neutralize the effect of each. So for everyday, OPT for one or the other and apply sparingly, build up color to reach your desired effect.
Lip Balm with SPF – This protects your lips against sun damage and keeps them soft and supple.
