The application of Make-up is to help define facial features and make women look years younger and feel more confident.


The benefits of make up and cosmetics are enormous for women.  Well chosen and carefully applied make up can take years off their looks, make them feel better as well as boost their confidence.
  • Make up add colour - i.e. eye shadow, blusher and lipstick will add tone to paler skin when applied discreetly.
  • Make up adds definition - i.e. thinning brows, sparser eyelashes and fading lip outlines can be defined and coloured with mascara, brow and lip pencils.
  • Make up enhances better points - i.e. correctly applied eye make up will augment the eyes making them focal points, thinner lips can be boosted with lipstick and cheekbones can be accentuated with blushers.
  • Make up disguises imperfections - i.e. concealers applied correctly can reduce darker pockets under the eyes, or the appearance of sagging jowls can be reduced.  Poor skin texture can be covered with a good foundation.  However once the better points are enhanced, the imperfections are immediately disguised.
  • Make up boosts confidence - women look in the mirror 'once they have their face on' and feel instantly smarter.
