With year end function season in full swing it is important to make sure you are polished from top to bottom. Below are some guidelines for your make-up and hair :-
Firstly, prepare properly ! This is a very important step to ensure your make-up stays flawless and lasts the whole evening. So cleanse, tone, moisturise and then primer. I love Smashbox and Mac primers and therefore highly recommend them.
Next vital component in looking flawless, after all there will be photos being taken, concealer ! Use about 2 shades lighter than your skin, in either a compact or liquid form. Apply with a brush or fingertips and ensure it is well blended, a make-up sponge here would be perfect. Remember to conceal before you apply your foundation.
Your secret weapon … Bronzer ! It gives great definition to your face. Apply to your jawline and temples and see the difference.
Your dark shadow defender … illuminator ! Either compact, powder or liquid depending on what you are comfortable working with. Apply wherever dark shadows lie on your face.
As you want to stand out at your corporate function for the right reasons, aim on looking fresh faced and opt for natural colours for your eyes and lips. No one wants to look like a clown, so avoid bright colours. If you choose to use a darker colour on your eyes, then choose a lighter lip colour and visa versa. Good options for darker lips are reds and plums. For lighter lips, choose a shade or 2 darker than your natural lip colour.
Remember to keep your lipstick and powder in your clutch for touch ups.
