face and under the neck an oil free foundation, which will last

dark tone at the outer corner of the eyes and blend with white to make
grey. White and black make-up is the safest to use, as almost anyone
can carry it off. Keep blending and adding color and so as to avoid
concentration of any one particular color.
- Use a thin line of white eyeliner on
the eyelid, to highlight the eyes. Finish the line with black eyeliner
and add a little black eye shadow under the eye. Then apply black
mascara to the lashes. Remove any clumps with Q-tips. Next, brush
eyebrows and apply a brown eyebrow pencil for extra definition.

before the cheeks to give the intensity of the face. Use a contour
lipstick to define the lips in the same harmony as the lipstick. Use a
long lasting product and color lip in full. It is always important to
have your lipstick match your outfit, so we have used Givenchy's
couture lipstick No. 602 Ruby.

cheekbone outwards and under the chin. Add white powder to highlight
the top of the cheek. Blend with brush and powder for the final touch
including ears. Finally place Tikka on forehead.
