Applying Concealer 

When applying concealer, it's best to tilt your head forward slightly, so you can see where the shadows fall. This way, you can be sure that you are applying concealer in the right place.

Ombre Lips

If you use a shadow of pink for the centre of the lip, then apply a peach or orange gloss on top of the pink. This makes the colour more intense.

Apply eyeshadow colour 421 as a base. This prevents other eyeshadow from getting into the lines.

Eyebrows

To make a narrow eyebrow look wider, it's best to use a light-blond pencil. Start at the front and work your way out. You can of course always make your brows a little longer. You can then fade the lines a little with a small brush. This makes your glance a little less strict. Then only colour in the hairs, in the opposite direction, with the pencil in the shade of your hair.
