Skin Care/Makeup Tips:
Wake up your skin by using an exfoliating product to remove dead skin cells on the surface.
Cleanse using a gentle product such as Cetaphil or Dove.
Follow up with a moisturizer, suitable for your skin type. Recommended: Embryolisse or Cetaphil. Keep the skin hydrated.
Condition your lips — apply a petroleum-based product, such as Vaseline
Use soft tissues and also apply the Vaseline on your nostrils before going to sleep
Sleep propped up to drain fluids
Try using wet tea bags on the eyes to de-puff in the evening and the next morning
Store you eye cream in the refrigerator
In the Morning:
Splash cold water on your face to close pores and wake up
Use teardrops, product like Refresh Tears, to brighten and refresh your eyes.
Apply the cold, cold eye cream — it refreshes and de-puffs
Apply a light shimmer on the eyelids to reflect the light, especially the inner corners of the upper lids
Add eyeliner in a cool color like navy or purple to make the whites of the eyes pop
Use a kohl pencil on the lower water line in a flesh tone to take the red out
Curl the lashes and apply waterproof mascara in black, navy or purple
Start with a primer under foundation – the foundation will last longer
Add an illuminating product to your foundation and apply primarily in the center of the face, where the light hits
If you can keep it on after nose blowing, use a yellow concealer on the nostrils to cancel the redness
To camouflage a sallow, pasty complexion, use a bright pink or peach, or a bronzer for blush and apply on the apples of the cheeks to give a flushed, but not feverish, look
Add a pop of shimmery cream blush — only the cheekbones
Apply translucent powder to set
Use a creamy, neutral/pink lipstick
Apply gloss to the lips frequently to keep them hydrated
