Ac­cord­ing to Cindy Barshop, owner of Com­pletely Bare spas in New York, ex­ces­sivex­cess and con­tin­ual shav­ing or wax­ing can cause hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion­r­pig­men­tati in the armpits. Your skin can also look darker due to armpit-pit-hair shad­owin­shad­ow­ing. If you use un­der­arm de­odor­ant, go for the ones thatat also work to lighten yy­our un­der­arms for an even skin tone all over. If you’reou’re not a de­odor­ant user, BBarshop rec­om­mends a hair-in­hibitor cream to re­duce the growth rate be­twee­be­tween shaves or waxes. Or use hair-re­moval creams that are gen­tle on the skin as well as help skin stay hair-free longer com­pared to shav­ing. CaCar­mindy, the make-up artist from TV shshow What Not To Wear, ex­plains how to do this: First, close your eyes and vi­su­alise your face, con­cen­trat­ing on your favourite fea­ture. Then, take a glance in the mir­ror and see which fea­ture stands out. Or ask friends what they think it is. Once you’ve pin­pointed your best fea­ture, en­hance with th­ese ex­pert tips.

For big­ger eyes, make-up guru Tay­lor-Chang Baba­ian rec­om­mends the smoky eye look.

Brighter or darker colours en­hance lips, says make-up artist Rachel Devine.

Ap­ply a high­lighter down the bridge of your nose so it ap­pears straight, sug­gests make-up artist Sarah Jag­ger. CHEEK­BONES Use sheer blush tones. Make-up artist Nick Barose rec­om­mends matte for­mu­las. EYE­BROWS To find your nat­u­ral arch, here’s a tip from brow spe­cial­ist Kristie Stre­icher: Hold a pen­cil straight next to the outer edge of your iris. Your arch is where the pen­cil hits your brow. Sweep out­wards a nude eye­shadow un­der your arch. Der­ma­tol­o­gist Jef­frey Ben­abio says pre­ma­ture grey­ing ng could be due to genes, a vitamin B-12 de­fi­ciency, or com­pli­ca­tions with your pi­tu­itary or thy­roid gland. Build-up of f hy­dro­gen per­ox­ide is another rea­son. Hy­dro­gen per­ox­ide is usu­ally bro­ken down by body en­zymes to cre­ate wa­ter and oxy­gen. When this fails to hap­pen, free rad­i­cals are formed, leadingead­ing to weaker hair and pre­ma­ture grey­ing. To counter this, eat food with an­tiox­i­dants like vi­ta­mins C and E, flavonoids and polyphe­nols. ls.
