1. Lips

Lip liners give a definition to your lips.

  • Choose a lip liner that is the same shade or 1 or 2 shades darker than your lip shade. Blend in the line well with the lip shade.
  • Use a lipstick brush or a cotton bud to blend in the colour.
  • Pick dark shades or nudes.
  • Go for a matte lip shade. It is the trending choice for the season.

2. Cheeks

With a little help, the blusher can accentuate your cheekbones, and bring a healthy glow to your face.




  • Smile and apply the blusher on your cheekbones.
  • Dust the extra blusher with soft hands and blend it a little with upward strokes on the temples. Don’t apply too much. Keep it simple.
  • Smile and check. You should look like you’re naturally blushing.
  • Choose a blusher that is a tone lighter than your skin. It will help bring out the natural undertones.

  • If you want to use more than one eye shadow, remember to pick up shades that belong to the same family of colour. Do not use more than three different colors.
  • Use brown eyeliner over the black one, for a night look.
  • For a morning look, be adventurous with the colour of the eyeliner. It will give the eyes a softer edge. Glitter Eyeliners are a good option.
