Add a little sparkle with these ten top tips from make-up artist Chloë Butcher


Posted: 18 June 2010

1. Use a soft toothbrush to buff your lips and remove dead skin. Apply a lip balm afterwards to moisturise and rehydrate.

2. Before applying make up, make sure skin is thoroughly cleansed to ensure there is no grease as that will cause your make up to slide.

3. Take time to really massage moisturiser into your skin encouraging blood to the surface which in turn will make your skin glow.

4. When applying your foundation make sure you spend a little time doing this. Use your fingers to pat it into your skin, the heat will soften the product and make it look more natural rather than just sitting on the surface.

5. Use an eye brightener underneath your eyes to reflect the light and hide dark circles. Of course, plenty of sleep and drinking lots of water will also help.

6. Using a cream blush on the apples of your cheeks will give your complexion a fresh, youthful glow.

7. Don't go crazy with powder, it can have an aging effect and make your skin look dry. Use a powder with a slight shimmer and dust gently only over the areas that need it.

8. Get yourself a good pair of eyelash curlers, this makes such a difference. Make sure you have all your lashes in it before curling and hold for about 30 seconds. It will really open up your eyes making look bigger and give them a sparkle.

9. Applying highlighter to the cupids bow of your top lip will give them a fuller appearance.

10. Use a nude lip liner to contour your lips. It will give them more definition and stop gloss or lipstick feathering.
