Wearing make-up is a common thing for a campus girl in today’s society. However they don’t always get it right. We have compiled simple pointers for you on how to make sure you achieve that pretty look you always yearn for.


You shouldn’t put the concealer or foundation on your eyelids as a base as this might cause your eye makeup to crease giving you a clumsy look.


It’s extremely advisable to use your fingers to apply foundation if you want sheer coverage then use a brush to polish.


Start applying powder where your face shines the most, which is usually the T-zone, with a very light dusting everywhere else.

Put bronzer around your neck, face and chest to even out your skin tone. This will ensure everything is the same color.


Apply your brow pencil or powder to the upper portion of the eyebrow to lift your face up.


Make sure your lipstick is not too defined at the top of your lips and that it goes all the way out to the inner corners of your mouth. Be sure to press hard as you apply.


Start with a base shadow without any shimmer that matches the lightest skin tone on your face and apply all over your lid up to the brow. You should use this base shadow to make sure the darker shadows used on your lid up to the crease are properly blended.

Instead of looking straight ahead at the mirror, get close to it as possible, stick your head up and bring your chin toward the mirror. You want to look down as you apply, starting at the inner corner and making sure to go all the way out to the fold on the outside eye.


Be flexible enough when applying make-up. Of course your dress code should determine the make-up you wear.  Make-up is supposed to make you glam and classy, ensure you get it right!
