If you’re a make-up novice, these expert tips will help you learn how to use it to highlight your best features. But don’t forget to wipe it all off before you got to bed every night. Jojoba oil is the best to wipe off layers of make-up products like matte primer, concealer, foundation, blush-on and mascara, say experts.

Make-up tips

* Prepare your skin with cleansing, toning and moisturising.

* Use a primer to make a perfect base for your make-up. Conceal the imperfections with a concealer and dab some matte clay foundation with a make-up sponge. Wait till it settles.

*For the cheeks, use a blush and contour the hollow of your cheek and make it intense with a bronzing powder.

* To make your look more natural and radiant, apply blush bake to last.

* To create perfect gradation, highlight cheek bone with same blush highlighting shade.

*For the eyes, use an instant matte eye base prior to the eye shadow. Use a shimmer wave for brow bone, highlighting lighter shade.
