LONG-LAST­ING MAKE-UP

“Not to prime is a crime,” Napoleon says.

“No mat­ter what your skin type is, there is a primer for you.

“It cre­ates a bar­rier on top of your skin that stops your skin from ab­sorb­ing your make-up and is the eas­i­est way to keep your skin look­ing hy­drated, smooth and per­fected all day/night long.”

WHICH COLOURS SUIT WHICH EYE COLOUR?

“To make your eyes pop, opt for a com­pli­men­tary colour,” Napoleon says.

“On the colour wheel, shades that sit op­po­site from each other will bring each other out.

“Find a hue that your eye colour stems from and choose shades with the op­po­site, un­der­ly­ing colour.”

Blue eyes - try warmer tones in bronze, cop­per, brown, peach and pink.

Green eyes - look fan­tas­tic in shades of plum, pur­ple, red-browns and cop­pers. Brown eyes - should em­brace their fun side with blues, pur­ple and greens. Hazel eyes - are very lucky as many shades look amaz­ing; try pur­ple, green, cop­pers and plum.

HOW IM­POR­TANT ARE BROWS?

“If the eyes are the win­dows to the soul, it’s the brows that frame them,” Napoleon says.

“Groomed brows make the face feel more youth­ful and pol­ished and when done first can also mean you might not need to ap­ply as much make-up as your look will feel more com­plete.”

BEST COLOURS FOR HIGH­LIGHT­ING?

Napoleon says warmer shades with a golden/cop­per tone were per­fect to use as a high­lighter and the made the skin look radiant and glow­ing.

“Avoid any­thing with a sil­ver re­flec­tion, opt for gold, cop­per and bronze in­stead, also avoid high­lighters that have a pink or white base.”
