Step 1:

In a circular motion, rub in a primer that will allow the skin to stay oil free and increase longevity of make up wear. Apply foundation using a flat foundation brush. In order to highlight, use a make-up sponge to apply concealer under the eyes leading up to the top of the cheekbones. This gives a fresher look and covers up dark circles under the eyes. Next, use a wide and fluffy powder brush to apply bronzer, working from the check bone inwards and down towards the jawline. Use a brow kit to fill in the eyebrows and neaten up using concealer and a small angled make up brush.

Step 2:

Apply a light eye-shadow so that it fully covers the eyelid—this colour can also be used under the outer corner of the eyebrows as a highlighting mechanism. Apply a dark grey shadow into the crease between the eyelid and brow bone. Using a dusty pink eye-shadow, work from the inner corner of the eyelid, getting thicker towards the edge and eventually creating much thicker wing at the outer edge of the eyelid. Using black liquid eye-liner, start from the inner corner of the eyelid making a thin black line and only thickening at the very edge to create a subtle wing.

Step 3:

Apply a thin layer of mascara in preparation for the false eyelashes. Follow the instructions on the box to apply the lashes—it often takes a few tries before they fit on just right. It is useful to measure up the eyelashes against your own before starting, and trim the outer edges if necessary. It is also practical to have a pair of tweezers nearby to secure the eyelashes in place. Finally, apply the creamy lip gloss or matte lipstick to finish off the look.
