2.CUT CREASE

You may have seen the term ‘cut crease ‘on your journey around YouTube and Instagram.A cut  crease is basically an eye shadow technique that you use to define your eye socket. You draw a continuous line on the crease of your eyelid, use a light shadow on the eye lid and use a darker one on top of the line. It’s not as easy as it sounds. Many a person have tried and failed. It takes practice and patience.It’s like getting a black belt in makeup. 😀

5.MINK LASHES

False lashes are made of different materials.

These ones here are an example of mink lashes.

6.BAKING

‘Baking’ in this context is not the baking that you do in the kitchen. It’s a technique that was used from a long time ago by drag queens and stage performers to keep makeup on for a long time. You basically use setting powder under your eyes and all the oily parts of your face like your nose and your forehead and let it sit for at least ten minutes.You then brush off the excess powder.This will keep your foundation and concealer in place for quite a while. But it doesn’t sit well if you have fine lines on your skin.It may settle in those lines. If you want to see a further tutorial, watch this video here.

 

7.HIGHLIGHTING AND CONTOURING

Highlighting your face means using products lighter than your skin tone to make some areas of your face appear more prominent. Contouring is using darker shades to make certain areas of your face recede to give the face a bit of dimension. Contouring and highlighting has been around for quite a while. It’s just Kim Kardashian who made it popular among the masses. Companies have come out with a whole range of products to highlight and contour. Here are some of my favourite:
