To know if skin is oily, squeeze your nose and your cheeks; if some oil comes off, then your face is oily. Check your T-zone as well. Your T-zone is made of your forehead, nose and cheeks; if you see that these areas tend to bring out oil and shine, then you’ve got an oily skin and the No. 7 Shine Free primer or L’Oreal Matifier are suitable to your skin type.

Step 6:

Fill in your eye brows with brow pencil or brow powder. For African skin, the best shade of brow pencils or shadows are brown and dark brown shades. You don’t have to buy a brow powder if you have an eyeshadow in dark brown shade. Be sure to follow your natural brow shape and remember that both your eye brows are not shaped the same.

Step 7:

Apply an eyeshadow base on your eye lids before using a base shadow which should be an eyeshadow shade that is closest to your skin colour. An eyeshadow base gives your skin a clean look. Follow with an eye shadow shade of your choice. In this example, we applied shimmery bronze before laying over matte bronze. Follow with black liquid eye liner and Volumnizing Mascara. 

Step 8:

Smile and apply Sleek “flushed” blush to the apples of your cheek. Finish off your look with pink lips. You can mix gloss with matte and you will have a perfect blend.
