Choose the right light in which you do your
make-up. Day-time make-up is best put in daylight
by the window. Evening make-up should be done in front of a centrally
positioned electric light.
Use a hand-mirror for really close work,
i.e., applying the eye-liner or the mascara.
Apply make-up on a skin that is freshly
cleansed, toned and moisturized. Wait for five minutes before
starting your make-up.
Give yourself enough time to do a good job.
Plan your look before you start laying your equipment in front
Keep your make-up kit clean and tidy. Sharpen
all your pencils and make sure your brushes are clean and no residue
of the previous make-up is left on it.
