Make sure you apply moisturiser before make up and wait at least 10 minutes for it to be fully absorbed.
Less is more. Don't apply too much blusher. If you have run out of blusher apply a rosy coloured shimmer eye shadow instead or some lipstick.
Don't place foundation on the eyelids instead dust lightly with powder before applying your eye shadow. The eye shadow will last longer.
Purple eyeshadow is great for green or bluey/green eyes with yellow tones.
Browns for Blue eyes and blues for brown eyes.
Don't use lipstick. A nice coloured lip gloss is much more appealing and moisturising.
If you make the mistake of applying too much bronzer and look a little orange, sweep some bicarbonate of soda across the face and this will help to tone down the colour.
If your mascara is a little sticky. Place the mascara tube into a glass of warm water.
Oh and drink some ginger tea after applying your make up, it will make you feel warm on the inside and give you a dewy glow on out side.
