Sassy Mama Makeup Tips: Everyday Makeup⠀
1. Start with a light daytime foundation to hide blemishes and dark circles. Follow with translucent powder for all-day staying power!⠀
2. Fill in your eyebrows with a pencil or pomade. Eyebrows really frame the face, so filling them in will help you look more polished.⠀
3. Curl the lashes (our eyelash curler of choice is from @shuuemura) to open up the eyes. ⠀
4. Contour the cheeks with a bronzing or contour powder. Any cheek brush will do, but a tapered one like this from @zoevacosmetics will give you a precise application while blending the product out. Contouring the nose is optional, but if you want you can use a small fluffy brush just along the sides of the nose up to the eye sockets. If contouring's not your thing, skip it and apply blush!⠀
5. Finish off with your favourite everyday lippie! The @thefaceshop_sg Flat Velvet Lipstick is long-wearing without being too drying, and great for touch-ups.⠀
