Answer

Hey Naadhira

I am personally a great believer in a good skincare regime and before I make suggestions on which products to use or big product changes, I usually check the general care of the skin. Try giving this a look before you buy too many products that can make the problem worse. There are many different types of foundations and brands that you can take a look at like mousse products, matte products and my new favorite spray-on applications. The spray-on applications and products are not very common and I have only used it for photo shoots or weddings, but what I’ve found useful is how light it is and how long it lasts. You can explore all those options, but before you do, make double sure that the lady at the cosmetics counter or the make-up artist at the store knows exactly what you are NOT looking for so you can avoid leaving with a product that wrong for you.

Eyeshadows

Question

I find eyeshadows daunting. So many colours and I don’t really know what to do with them or how to pair them to create a look. I would like to know, what colours do you recommend for dark brown eyes and a medium to dark complexion. Could I also go with bold colours like yellows, pinks, purples, blues…? I really like the smoky eye look.
