MAKEUP TIPS BY ELAINE SHOBANJO



People have asked me over the last week how I put this look together.  





In particular, they wanted to know how I emphasised my cheek bones and what lip gloss I wore.
 
Indeed I'm very flattered and have decided to share some tips with you ladies. So, here we go!
 
Tips & Tricks.. 
Bring out your favourite lip glosses & MIX colours together.
 
Most people mix eye shadow colours and create smoky eyes or fabulous colourful eyes. But do you remember to mix your bronzers, blushers or lip glosses.
 
In this picture, I'd had a red lip earlier. I cleaned it off and surely it left my lips slightly stained. I put on Revlon's Super Lustrous lip gloss with SPF 15 in shade 150 and viola!
 
The amazing thing is that this lip gloss is actually very nude (almost beige). Thus, the pinkish shade you see in the photo is as a result of my stained lip.

  

I had just reapplied my gloss seconds before I took this photo and if I'm honest, it's a tad bit too glossy for me. So I dabbed some off and kept it looking like this.





Now let's get your cheeks chiselled! It’s easy - apply your favourite blusher to your cheek bones. Next, use a gold shimmering highlighter/bronzer to highlight the area just above your cheek bones. Blend together and you're good to go!
 









Remember that a little goes a long way so easy on the quantity you use!
 
DO try this at home ladies and send me pictures of you if you wish! If you're the daring type, try mixing eye shadow pigments with your lip gloss to create stunning colours!
