Materials Needed:

Smooth Eyebrows

Begin with a clean, well-moisturized face. To smooth the eyebrows before applying makeup, first coat eyebrows with a glue stick, rubbing in the direction of hair growth (Image 1). Pre-test your skin the day before to see if you have any allergies to the glue. Use translucent powder to set the glue, first dabbing on with a powder puff then brushing away any excess (Image 2).

Apply Base to Face

Use a makeup sponge to apply white cream makeup over the entire face, down the neck and onto the lips (Image 1). Be careful not to touch the face once the base makeup is applied because fingerprints are difficult to blend out.

Black Out Eyes

Use a flat makeup brush to fill in the hollows of the eyes with black cream makeup (Image 1).
