Hi, I’m a Plain Jane. I would like to wear make-up on a regular basis but have no idea where to start. I need basic tips, things to buy, how apply, minimal application but maximum effect (I hope I am making sense)… awaiting your expert advise!

Answer

Hi Nicolee

Thanks for this brilliant question.

The minimalist look is really in right now. the answer that I always give when I get asked this question is start with the basics which would be eye pencil, mascara, a bronzer or a blusher and a great lipgloss. If you want a bit of coverage the throw in some tinted moituriser.

-With the eye pencil you can either just line the bottom of the lid or if you are feeling adventurous the do the top as well.
-Brush some mascara through those lashes for the bright wide awake look.
-Next brush the apples of the cheeks with a bronzer for that sun kissed look all year round.
-Add some lipgloss and then you are good to go.

These are all the essentials needed to change up the norm a bit.

Go out and be the diva you were born to be, play around with colour and most importantly…HAVE FUN!!!

Stay Beautiful….Indulge Yourself
