Liquid foundation:

Best way to blend foundation is to mix distilled water in it and blend it in skin by rubbing, else streaks of foundation will appear after some time.


Loose powder:

Always use a loose powder that is transparent to avoid a shinny look.



Avoid an eyeliner or use in a thin line along the shape of your eye. Never apply it on the lower lid.



Matte lip colours with berry shades, plums, burgundies and all shades of browns look great with dark skin.



Coral, rose, deep orange are the colours for your skin. Avoid browns and peachy shades for blush-on.
