1. Skin Prep: Great Make-up look starts with great-skin! Prep your skin by using an exfoliating face wash:
a.Clinique Seven Day Scrub: lift dead skin cells and create a clearer, brighter, smoother base.
2. Foundation & loose finishing powder:
Apply a foundation for more coverage and blend, blend, blend! Foundation helps to achieve the airbrushed look seen on celebrities without looking fake. For people who want to go the extra mile and really perfect this look use a primer before applying foundation to really allow the foundation to set!
Finish the look off with loose finishing powder, it helps the foundation really sink into your skin helping to achieve a natural finish.

3. Smokey Eyes:
Start with an eye shadow base: start by applying all over the eye. Then apply an eye shadow closest to your skin tone. Next, apply a shimmery eye shadow on the lid and brow bone. Then take a smokey colored eyeshadow and apply to the outer corners of the eyes and in the crease of the eye and blend. Now use a black eyeliner on the top and bottom, preferably a smudge liner then finally finish with a few coats of black mascara and wahala! Sexy smokey eyes in minutes!
