Recommended beauty tips & tricks

There is nothing worse than a woman with lots of makeup on. It can make you look old and draggish. I don’t wear makeup in public but I do put it on when taking photographs or making videos of myself and sometimes I can look like those drag queens on TV.

Here’s a tip for women I would like to share. Less is definitely more. Makeup should enhance your natural beauty not cover it. People want to see your face and not an over exaggerated version of yourself.

Keep the queen in the pictures but in public show your true face. Men actually like a fresh face or the real you.

There are the essential must have items of makeup every woman should own.

All women should have a good long-lasting mascara to lengthen the lashes and make them stand out. Those false lashes are great once you get the hang of them but can be expensive.

Often I see them ready to fall off the woman’s eyelash struggling to hang on for dear life; simple mascara will do the trick. You can use clear mascara alone or apply first underneath black mascara.

A good base or foundation is absolutely essential – choose from mineral powders, creams and lotions to prime and even out your skin.

I’m an advocate for lip gloss or a neutral lipstick but you should save the lipstick for date night. For everyday wear I would suggest lip gloss instead or try a good brand of Chap Stick to keep the lips looking soft and moisturized.

A bright white smile is absolutely essential for a fresh, healthy and natural look. Professional teeth whitening costs less than ever is definitely worth the investment!

Eyeliner is another must have makeup item. You can go for black for a dark dramatic look or a subtle use of brown. I would stay away from the bright colours for everyday wear. The idea is to keep your face looking as close to natural as possible.
