Make Up

Enhance your beauty with make up.

Makeup helps enhance and emphasize your natural beauty. It is an extension and expression of what makes you You and your personality. A good makeup done can makes you look younger, enhances your appeal and conceals your imperfections. Before you put on makeup, make sure your face is clean and moisturized.

Here are tips and tricks on how to apply makeup.

  • Apply foundation to make your skin complexion look even. Choose the right shade. Apply foundation to your cheeks, forehead, and chin using a foundation sponge or your fingertips. Blend the foundation all the way to your natural hairline with long, light strokes. Blend up to the neck to achieve a natural look.
    Apply liquid concealer to hide skin blemishes and imperfections. Pat over the trouble area and blend gently.
    Set the foundation and concealer with a light even dusting of loose powder. This will give your face a smooth, velvety and natural finish.
  • Apply a thin coat of mascara to the upper and lower lashes to open and brighten your eyes. For a more polished look, add a quick sweep of eye shadow. Brush your eyebrows straight up with an eyebrow brush. Trim stray and long hair.
  • Apply a lip balm to your lips to keep it moisturized and hydrated. Apply lipstick starting at the center of both the lower and upper lips and moving out to the corners. Press and rub lips together lightly to distribute the color and help absorb the pigment. Then apply more color using your pinkie or lip brush to provide a longer-lasting effect.
  • Tap on the brush to remove any excess blush before applying to prevent uneven application. Smile to see the apples of your cheeks. Starting on the apples of your cheeks, apply the blush in a light, circular motion, blending back toward the temples. Using only what remains on the brush, gently dab color on your chin, forehead and temples.
