I often get ask how I keep my skin so smooth, clear and fresh, to be honest I use a lot of moisturizing cream at least twice a day this is because I have a very dry skin, the moisturizing cream keep my skin hydrated.
I also drink a lot of water between 1.5 to 2 liters a day. This is very good for the skin and it helps to lose weight if need be.
You have to also invest in skincare product, because it is useless to apply make up without the proper canvas, you can use make up to express yourself and to bring out your natural beauty but what you cannot do is to apply make up on a dry skin it will look like a mask and that is not what we want.

Developing a skin care routine that suit your skin type is very important you have to understand your skin and what it need to maintain it.

It is also very important to clean your make up brushes once or twice a week it all depends on how frequent you use them this is necessary to avoid bacteria.

After applying foundation, I dust my face with translucent powder to keep my face Matt. I also apply blush on my cheeks.

Above all to get a clear and smooth skin it is essential that you eat well, sleep enough and exercise regularly.

DVL_2253The contrast between black and gold for a dark skin is very fascinating. Gold brings a glamorous feel ,an it also bring out the natural beauty of very black woman’ s eye that is why we decided to create this look.
Dark skin ladies always have the problem of which eye shadow complements their skin because the selection is sadly limited, you always have to add a million coats before it even show up on your skin.
Gold & black are  colors of eye shadow which goes very well with the chocolate skin.
A way to know which eye shadow is good for your skin tone is to try it first on your hands, if the shade melts right into your skin then it is right for you, if it makes your skin look dry then it is not for you.
The color gold adds brightness to the eye and it blends really well on dark skin.
If you are a chocolate girl please don’t hesitate to try this.

Green is the color which is mostly associated with summer and spring time, for the army theme shoot we decided to go for a smokey green eye shadow make up. This complemented the models very well and the shoot was a success because all the models would get into character.
Ways to create this look
• After using primer on the eyelid, I applied light brown eye shadow as my base coat.
• I used a dark brown color into the crease to define the crease.
• I used a green color eye shadow on the eyelid and a little of it also under the      eye in combination with black eyeliner, I then blend it to create the smokey eye effect.
• Apply a little gold on the brow bone and on the inner tear duct area to open the eyes and bring in some light.
• I applied black eyeliner to create a dramatic wings eye.

To pull the look together, I used a red lipstick because red complement green.

The major challenge for the Asian makeup is the eye, this is because their eye is usually small and no well defined crease so as a makeup artist you have to make the eye appear bigger by using eyeliner, false lashes and mascara.
The eyeliner helps makes the eye appear bigger and the mascara makes the eye to pop.
One of the go to make up look for Asian is the everyday natural look, this is soft, pretty and simple
The smoky eye is also an alternative look : for the Asian it is less about adding dimension to the outer crease because there is no crease it is more about creating an even effect from the lash line towards the brow.

Six ideas for Asian make up

  • Apply colour to the eyelid and add a black eyeliner in the corner of the crease and brown eyeshadow on the browbone, blend for a natural look.
  • You can play with colour by using different coloured eyeliner on top and bottom.
  • Line your eye with black eyeliner and double it with a colored eye liner.
  • Apply Gold eyeshadow and black on the outer corner of the crease.
  • Add blue shadow underneath the eye.
  • Add bright white Eyeliner along the bottom of  the waterline to make the eye appear bigger.

Make up had it golden age in the 50s.

Unknown models became face of make up brands. Skin improvement cosmetic began to sell fast. During the Pin up era the compact foundation was born.

In the 1950s the make up was simple but glamorous, liquid foundation which was closed to the natural skin was used.

Eye shadow was subtle, the wing effect became popular. Rouge was applied under the apple of the cheeks.

Television stepped from black & white to colored. Instead of the 1950s woman to choose color of eye shadow that complimented her skin or hair she would choose color of eye shadow that matches her clothing, putting on make up was not just to attract the husband but keep her as his eyes candy.

The ideal face was oval so you had to contour your face. Using lighter and darker power to give the illusion of an oval face. Well defined eyebrow was the icon look of the 1950s.

When we talk about 1950s make up style we think about Grace- Kelly, Audrey Hepburn etc.

The 1950s was the age of glamour
