Step by Step: Everyday look for beginners in makeup.

1) Wash Face

2) Moisturize

3) Foundation: A medium coverage, liquid foundation works well applied with fingers. Remember to take it down the neck, so you don’t look like you’re wearing a mask. Follow with a powder.

4) Blush: Coral blushes are great, to give your cheeks a natural glow. Lightly sweep from the apple’s of your cheeks upwards. Be careful not to overdo it.

5) Bronzer: Bronzer is great to make the illusion of higher cheek bones. Gently sweep in the hollows of your cheeks. Drag LIGHTLY towards the corner of your mouth (do not create a line). An easier way to do it is to make a three on either side of the face.

6) Highlight: Apply a very small amount of highlight color under the bridge of the eyebrow, on the very tops of the cheek bones, and the littlest amount in the tear ducts.

7) Eyeliner: Apply pencil as close to the lash line as possible, then smudge with finger.

8) Eyeshadow: For a smokey look (for work or evening): Apply gold eyeshadow on the entire lid (not too much). Then apply a deep purple color on the outer corner, and the outer half under the eye (again, small amount). Then apply a shimmery copper color at the center of the lid.

9) Mascara: This is optional but if used can often make the eyes more defined and pronounced.

10) Lip Gloss: This product works well to bring some shine and color to the face. It also doesn’t have some of the problems that lipstick has of caking or spreading. Subtle colors are excellent for the daytime.
