Make- Up Tip 2 - Alternative make-up

Lipstick- Blusher

  • Dab your chosen lipstick on the apples of your cheeks
  • Blend out with your fingers or brush

Light shimmery eyeshadow- highlighter

  • Sweep the eyeshadow over the areas of your face that you wish to highlight. i.e The top of the cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose.

Lipliner- lipstick

  • Simply fill in your lips
  • Add lipgloss and your good to go!

Eyeshadow- Brow powder

  • Choose an eyeshadow closest to your natural eyebrow colour.
  • Using an angled brush, use light stroke to fill in your brows.

Eyeshadow- Eyeliner

  • Pick the colour you wish to use as eyeliner from your eyeshadow collection
  • Using an angled or eyeliner brush, carefully build the eyeliner effect you want.
  • Add a drop of water to the eyeshadow for a creamy application.
  • This can be winged, double winged and used in the lower lash line.
  • Try not to put power in the waterline.

Make-Up Tip 1- Pencil Eyeliner/Lip liner Dry?

Q. What do you do if your pencil eyeliner or lip liner is dry and not transferring very well. 

1. Run a hairdryer over it for a few seconds or run the tip through a flame for two seconds
2. lightly test on the back of your hand. 
3. If too creamy let it cool for a few more seconds.
4. If not moist enough, repeat steps 1 & 2.

Don't throw out something you can rescue :)

Hope these tip helped....Comments below are appreciated.
