as multi-minerals and vitamins A, C and E. Apply around the nose and mouth
first, and then blend outward.
Many women have a difficult time deciding which shades will work and
look good. Start by selecting a hue that matches your complexion well; blending is essential, and you are on your way to achieving a beautiful look that is
right for you.
Translucent pressed powder. Powder sets your foundation and takes
away shine. Gently pat a puff or brush onto the powder. Shake off any excess.
Apply gently over nose, chin, forehead and cheeks.
Natural bronzing powder. Lightly sweep a brush over the bronzer; tap off
excess. Apply to cheeks, forehead, nose, chin and neck for a sun-kissed look.
Reapply, if necessary, to achieve the desired shade.
Blush. Blush adds a sheer, shimmery glow to your face. To apply, smile
and sweep your cheeks with the darker shade. Follow up with a lighter shade
on the apple of your cheeks for an extra pop of color.
While bronzing powder and blush may seem similar, a blush enhances
the contour of your cheekbones, adding a sheer, shimmering glow to your
face. Bronzers give you a sun-kissed look and can be used on particular areas
of the face. Blush can be used on top of the bronzer for a bit more color.
Eye shadow. An eye shadow base is an essential primer to ensure the
perfect application of eye shadow. Place a small amount of the base on the
fingertips and blend it over the eyelid area up to the brow.
When adding color, sweep on the lightest shade first, using the fuller side
of a dual-ended brush, from lash line to brow. Follow with a semi-light shade
from lash line to brow; then a medium shade from lash line to crease. Dampen
the eyeliner brush (it’s the thinner side of a dual-ended brush) with a darker
shade and apply along the lash line.
If you’re having trouble choosing eye shadow colors for day or evening
wear, consider the following. For day, colors should look natural and beautiful
to complement your features. For a dressier look for the evening, play up your
eyes by creating a smoky, smoldering look. Shimmery tones reflect light,
which makes facial lines and wrinkles less noticeable.
Mascara. To lengthen and define lashes, roll the mascara brush from
the base to the tips.
Always cap mascara tightly and do not dilute. Look for mascara with
proteins to strengthen and guard lashes against breakage.
Once a tube has been opened, replace mascara every three to four
months to ensure hygiene.
Lipstick and liner. For a natural look, line lips with lip liner after applying
lipstick. For a more dramatic look and to keep color from bleeding, line lips
before applying lipstick.
Again, the ideal colors for daytime wear are more natural shades. In
the evening, you can add drama on the lips with a deeper, brighter shade,
shimmer and sparkling gloss. A
