  • False eyelashes
  • Mascara
  • Bronzer

Applying foundation with a brush

1. Foundation

Start off by applying some foundation with a brush all over your face. Be sure to choose a shade that matches your natural skin tone.

Applying highlighter to the face

2. Highlighter

The next step is to add some brightness to your face with some highlighter. Start by applying it under your eyes in a downward triangle shape. Then apply it to the center of your face starting with the center of your forehead, down your nose, and at either side of the bottom of your nose.


Proceed to add some to your cupid's bow, under your lower lip and chin. Once applied, blend all of the highlighter in with a makeup brush.

Applying translucent powder over makeup

3. Translucent powder

The next step is to brush some translucent powder over your face. This will give your skin a natural-looking glow.

Filling in eyebrows to define them

4. Eyebrows

Moving onto the eyebrows, take a fine brush and some dark brown eyeshadow (or whichever shade matches your eyebrow color) and apply it to your eyebrows. This will give your eyebrows a fuller and more defined appearance.

Applying neutral eyeshadow as a base

5. Eyeshadow

Next, take a neutral shade of eyeshadow and brush it all over your mobile lid and upper lid. This will act as your base.

Blending a dark brown eyeshadow on the lid

Continue by going in with a dark brown color and applying it to your mobile lid.

Applying white eyeshadow below the brows

Then apply a white shade below your brows to brighten that area.

8. Eyeshadow

Take your brown eyeshadow again and gently smudge it in the outer part of your lower lashline. This will help to create a slightly smoky effect.

9. Eyelashes

Next, apply some false eyelashes and go over them with some mascara.

Applying bronzer to the forehead

10. Bronzer

Add some color to your face with some bronzer. You want to apply this to your cheekbone, your jawline, and around your forehead. Then, with a smaller brush, dust some onto either side of your nose.

Applying blush to the cheeks

11. Blush

Next, add some blush to your cheeks.

Applying pink lipstick

12. Lips

To finish off, go in with a lip pencil over your lips. I’ve gone for a bright pink color for a bold and flirty look.
