Marie Claire (South Africa) - - ADVERTORIAL -

Since all the em­pha­sis is on the eyes, lips take a backseat with skin-tone shades. If you have lighter skin, go del­i­cate pink and apri­cot, while dusty rose and brown-based red lip­sticks work well on darker skins. Selina sug­gests dab­bing on the colour with your fin­ger­tips to cre­ate a softer, more nat­u­ral ef­fect. As for skin, keep things light and dewy, with only a light dab­bing of translu­cent pow­der on the T-zone. ‘Con­tour­ing wasn’t a thing in the 60s, so perk up the skin with blush ap­plied to the ap­ples of the cheeks,’ says fash­ion and beauty as­sis­tant Nokubonga Thusi. For darker skins, use a red­based or bright pink blush, and paler skin tones can go for del­i­cate pinks and peaches.
