In The Mornings After Applying My Make-up I Look And Feel Like A

Question

In the mornings after applying my make-up I look and feel like a million bucks but then by midday I have darkish circles under my eyes, what consealer or foundation would you recommend to see me through the day? Don’t like that drained and tired look.

Answer

Hi Robyn

Do you use a primer? A primer helps to even out the skin tone, and also makes make-up last longer. Follow with a cream based concealer, apply with your finger and then apply the foundation. You can also follow with a translucent powder to make your make-up last longer. 

Tricks on brightening up the face:
Use a white shimmer eye shadow on the inside corner of the eye. this opens up the eyes. A few coats of mascara widen the eyes and make them look more awake. Pink blush on the cheeks brings some colour to the face.

Hope this helps!
