For flawless make-up, moisturise your skin well before applying the products and use fixtures for a refreshed look.

    Here are some tips for keeping your make-up perfect :-

 Moisturise: Moisturise your skin before applying make-up, but be sure that the moisturiser is oil-free. Besides that, use a primer. Go for mineral powder foundation which works great for oily skin. Apply it with foundation applicator brush.

 Eyes: Before applying eyeliner to your bottom lashes, dust a brush over some baby powder and apply it on the lower lash line which will soak the extra moisture from the area. Also, avoid putting eye cream directly on your lids and apply primer specifically made for your eyes.

 Lips: Try to get rid of extra skin from your lips with the help of sugar scrub. Apply foundation to your lips to make your lipstick last longer. Line and fill the lip with neutral lip pencil. Apply one coat of lipstick and then blot, and finish with a light layer lip gloss.

 Blush: Use powdered blush-on in natural earthy shades or apply the blush on in a dotted format on your cheeks and rub it gently with your ring finger. For blush-on, you can use colours like ruby and strawberry.

Refresh your make-up: Fixtures are generally used to give your make-up a refreshed look. After spraying it, let it settle for approximately six to seven seconds. Get ready with a fresh face on a hot and sweaty day.
