The art of make-up
Cosmetics for the Modern woman and their uses:
These are the cosmetics used for makeup.
1. Foundation: This is used to give the skin an even
tone. It neutralizes red cheeks, broken veins and freckles. It is very
useful if make-up is to look very effective. It provides the base for
all other make-up and makes their application quite easier. It is very
essential to keep in mind that the main purpose of a foundation is to
even out natural skins tone and not to change the colour of the skin.
Foundation is available in either liquid, cream or solid form.
2. Face Powder : This is used to set the foundation which
would otherwise within 2-3 hours, slide off the skin. Face powder
is the essential finishing touch to all make-up. It also gives staying
power to lipstick and prevents cream blusher and eye shadow from
creasing. Face powder is available either in a loose from or in a

shadows under eyes, broken veins, high cheek colour, blemishes etc.
Concealers come in sticks or as thick cream and are generally applied

that you apply to your face and one of the most flattering Its main
purpose is to accentuate the cheek bones and to add colour and warmth
to the skin. Blushers come in a variety of colours and shades in a wide
thrice of textures as well.
5. Eyebrow colour : This is used to add colour to the
eyebrows. These colours are either in the form of a pencil or a powder.
6. Eye –Shadows: These are used to give colour,
definition and shape to the eyes.
7. Lipstick: This is used to balance the made-up face
and to emphasise the mouth. Nowadays, lipsticks have a much softer
texture. Lipsticks can be used directly on the lips but it is difficult
to achieve a clean outline this way. It is thus better to take the
lipstick off the stick with a lip brush.
8. Highlighter: This is generally used for dramatic
effects to give a flattering ‘lift’ to a face.It is used on the
browline, top of the cheekbone and the top line centre. The colours
are light cream or white and are available either in the powder or
9. Shaders and Contours : Shaders are always brown and are used
around the face to give a slimming effect. Contours are generally brown
and are used under the cheekbone, to give a hollow look. The key to
successful application for shaders and contours is a very light touch.
10. Mascara : This is used to emphasise eyes further by adding
colour, thickness and sometimes even length to lashes.
