1. Correct skin tone
2. Define features
If you like your eyebrows HD with a gradient like a Photoshop tool, maybe this part is the one you can skip. The same goes for noticeable contouring and highlighting. Filling in your brows and keeping them well groomed is subtle and natural enough. I use brown eyeshadow the shade of my roots and a brush as a multi-purpose product I can pop in my bag when I’m in a rush.
I use touche eclat from YSL beauty to highlight areas like the bridge of my nose and brighten the circles under my eyes. To elongate my face a little, I dab some on my chin, so the shape of the highlight makes a V.
I used a highlighter pen from Dior for my cheeks because it has a lighter consistency and gives more of a ‘glow’.
3. Brighten eyes and make them look refreshed
A few things I do to get my eyelashes to stay perky is blast my curlers with a hairdryer until they’re warm, then I give my lashes a few pumps and hold it all up with mascara. Adding a little shimmer to the corners of my eyes opens them up and using darker shadow on the lid defines the crease of my hooded lids.
4. Neutral tones bring warmth to the face
From blusher to lipstick, keeping to neutral tones that match the natural colour of the area, makes this look appear as fresh as possible. Usually coral hues, especially in lipsticks don’t tend to suit me but this one I got from Guerlain has an amazingly pigmented pinkness.
