My brother, Leslie, earned his first medal of achievement when he was six, at an art competition. He did a piece, where he interpreted the theme “Festival” a drawing of a lion dance performance.

With my influence (and maybe my mother’s), he is also one of the men that I know that have a decent skincare regime. He also knows the difference between a lipstick and a lip gloss, a BB cream and a liquid foundation.

Let’s see how he fare as makeup artist now.

Makeup tip #1: The more the merrier

We’re talking about eyeshadow, of course. This avant-garde look is a blend of made up of three colours – brown, pink and turquoise, all using a YSL eyeshadow palette.

See how it makes your eyes look more alluring? It reminds me of Paddle Pop ice-cream, actually!

Makeup tip #2: Suck in cheeks to see where to put blusher

After rehearsing by pretending to put the blusher on himself, and trying to visualise how it’s supposed to work, Leslie asked me to suck in my cheeks. Then he popped the blusher along where it’s depressed.

Now, I’m depressed.

He used Benefit’s Hervana and advised that you should brush it generously for at least five times, in a back and forth motion.

Makeup tip #3: Get your client to close her eyes while you apply the eyeliner

It’s safer.

After which, apply brow powder along the brows with a brush. Dark and long brows frame the face and are also the most stylish look this season. Don’t forget mascara.

Makeup tip #4: Apply red lipstick randomly.

Put a bit below the cupid’s bow. Side of lower lip next. A bit on the top lip. Actually, just go with your mood.

And then… you’re done!
