FOUNDATION

Finding a great foundation for your skin tone and type is important. It helps add a beautiful layer on your face and neck. Foundation can now actually be good for your skin by protecting it from pollution, the sun and helping to balance oily or dry skin. As a result, foundations will now not only make you look good, but they can also offer some serious anti-ageing benefits as well. It is important to know the kind of skin you have oily, uneven and dry this way you know which foundation to buy.

PRIMER

A primer creates an extra layer between your skin and makeup. Priming products are predominantly used to help makeup last longer, smooth the skin’s surface, and even out the skin tone. Different primers can be used on the face, eyes, lips, and even lashes.

POWDER

Helps minimise oil from the face. It soaks up excess oil, so it can’t melt away your makeup. Plus, removing excess oil also mattifies your skin and gets the shine at bay for a few hours. If you have oily skin, face powder are your BFF

CONCEALER

Used to cover up scars and make skin look evener. Also helps to highlight your features and contour your face.

  • Green Concealer :Green concealers are often called colour correctors because that’s exactly what they do. Green concealer, when used correctly, can tone down the redness from inflamed pimples and help camouflage breakouts.
  • Orange Concealer :Orange concealer is actually ideal for dark circles since it cancels out dark lines in all skin tones. The way that these concealers work is by balancing out the cool tones of the skin, especially if you’re suffering from chronic dark circles, or even skin discoloration.
  • 2 shades lighter concealer:To highlight your face
  • 2 shades darker :To contour your face

BEAUTY BLENDER

With a damp beauty blender, your foundation easily blends into your skin. A beauty blender is used to place product evenly across the face.

NEUTRAL/NUDE EYE SHADOW PALETTE

A method I have learned to master eyeshadow application is to use 3 shades that are similar to each other. Say you go for a PINK shade, you pick the lightest PINK as your base, the darkest as your transitioning colour and your PINK with some glitter for your crease.
