Makeup Secrets Revealed 4


Makeup artists will tell you, eyebrows can make or break your face. Eyebrows serve as a natural frame for your eyes. They move with your every expression to emphasize what you say and how you feel.

Begin by brushing brows with a brow brush. To measure your brows, hold a pencil vertically along the outer corner of your nose to the inner brow. If your brow line overlaps onto the bridge, remove the excess hair. If the brow falls short, pencil it in. To find where your brow should taper or end, hold the pencil from the outer corner of the nose across the corner of the eye to the outer brow.

The brow should end at this point. Brows can be filled in to alter or emphasize. Brow pencils or brow powders can be used.

TIP: Always use a brow color that is as natural looking as possible. The main objective is to define not create over-powering brows. To fill in, comb first, then use feather like strokes with your pencil to fill in. To create a more natural look, comb again after applying the pencil.
TIP: When using a brow definer or brush on brow, the same method is used. Comb, apply with a brush and then comb again. Sacha’s Dark Brown Single Eyeshadow is excellent for darker brows.
TIP: When using powdered brow color, use a harder bristled angle brow brush and draw tiny hair-like strokes. When using a brow pencil, maintain a sharp edge and use the same technique as the brush. You may use a disposable mascara wand to soften. The trick is comb, apply, comb.
TIP: If your brows are low or close to the eyes, bleaching them can “open up” the face.



Sacha’s exqusite blush adds warmth or color to the face. The look most women want to achieve is that of a warm, natural glow.

Blushers are available in powder, cream or liquid and in a wide variety of tones. Liquid and cream blush should be applied before powder. Generally most women prefer to use a powder blush as it is much easier to apply.

For easy application, sweep blush downward from the ear to mid-cheek, beginning in line with the top of the ear and ending at the end of the apple of your cheek. It is best to choose colors that are close to your skin tone.

TIP: Always remember less is best.
TIP: Be sure to do the blush test. Once you are done with your entire makeup stand back, look in the mirror. Check to see if your face is ‘balanced’. You should have on just enough blush to make you look as though you are blushing. If you have on any more than that you need to tone it down.
TIP: To soften blush apply some powder over your blush. In the evening you have a little more liberty and so you could go a bit heavier according to the look you wish to achieve.

Our Satin Powders in Golden Bronze and Candy Floss can be used as blushers and are ideal for night-time glamour.



The most popular beauty product world over, is lipstick. Form the corner store to the largest cosmetic counter you are sure to find lipsticks available. There is wide variety of brands, colors, textures and finishes to create those much sought after lush, beautiful lips.

You can find lipsticks in traditional tubes, pots, pencils, and even wands with innovative designs emerging daily. While color selection is a personal choice, current fashion trends also play a big part in influencing a woman choice of lipstick.

To create that perfect pair of lips you should start by lining with a neutral colored pencil following your natural lip line. Using a lip brush fill in with lip color of your choice. Use your lip brush to blend the two so that there are no harsh edges.

Sacha lipsticks come in cream, frosted and matte shades.

The secret of creating the picture-perfect lips lies in the choice of color and correct application.

TIP: If you are not fortunate to have full lips, wear the lightest, frostiest lipsticks you can find. They will cause your lips to look fuller. Follow with Sacha lipgloss.
TIP: You should use Sacha’s Vitamin E Lip Protector before application of any type of
lipstick. It moisturizes and nourishes the lips preventing dryness and cracking.
TIP: To create your own smudge-resistant lipstick blot your lips with one sheet of twoply tissue. Reapply lipstick and blot again. This will absorb the oils in the product and leave the pigment and matte waxes.
TIP: If you are over 40 we advise that you should avoid wearing matte lipsticks. You will look best with a little shine on your lips. Always use a lip liner since it builds a dam that keeps the lipstick from ‘bleeding’.
TIP: To remove lipstick from clothing, apply glycerine on the spot, rub lightly and wash as normal.

If you wear foundation, apply evenly onto your face with a cosmetic sponge. A sheer application works well for daytime, whereas at night you may apply a bit more.

If you have any areas like dark under-eye circles, blemishes, red spots, or broken capillaries, concealer will do the job. It is easiest if you apply this with a fine brush to the area that you wish to conceal and then blend with your fingertips.

Loose powder is better to set your foundation because the finish is lighter. Apply it lightly with a large powder brush for a sheer finish, a puff or sponge for a heavier finish. Remember to dust a little under your eyes to set your concealer (helps prevent creasing).

For a quick and easy eye makeup, sweep a single wash of color over the entire eye in a neutral tone. Don’t forget your brows. Apply your liner, then mascara.

Lipsticks as well should be of the same color family as the rest of the face. Line your lips, and apply a quick coat of Sacha’s Vitamin E Stick. Fill in with your lip color of choice. Gloss is optional.

To determine the intensity of your blush, take your cue from the rest of your face. During the day you should go for a light sweep of color. At night you may add a bit more color or glitz with light dusting of Sacha’s Satin Powders.

After completing the last step, lightly spray Sacha’s Fix It Spray over the entire face to set your makeup and make it longer wearing.
TIP: Clean your brushes as often as possible and they will last forever. Spray alcohol on a sheet of paper towel and sweep your brushes lightly over it. For brushes
made with natural hair, it is recommended that you shampoo and condition them once a week.
