Want to receive Ono Bello’s trendy cover look? Zaron tells you how.

Step 1: Prep your face with a face primer which aids longevity and creates a smooth base for your foundation to glide on properly.

Step 2:Choose your foundation shade,blend all over the face to help even out your skin tone with a foundation brush. to eliminate shine,set your foundation with  a powder.

Step 3: With an eyebrow definer,lightly fill in your brows using an angled brush.highlight with a concealer shade lighter than your normal shade and blend to define the brows.

Step 4: Prep your eyelid with an eye primer,it makes your eye shadow pop and last longer.

Step 5: With a shadow brush,pat on the gold eye shadow on your eyelid starting from the inner corner of your yes and blend upwards to avoid harsh lines

Step 6: Pat on the black shadow at the outer corner of the eye starting from your lash line in a “V” shape going up to the crease using a fluffy brush,blend inwards (crease) until the edges of the shadow are no longer defined to avoid harsh lines.

Step 7: Gently line your top and bottom lash line with a gold gel eye liner.

Step 8: Apply your false lashes for that extra glam, with few coats of mascara,blend in the false lash into your natural lash for a more natural finish.

Step 9: For a more defined and sculpted face,use a highlight and contour kit. contour the hollow of your cheek and the outer part of your nose,use the highlighter shade on the highest point of your cheekbones,forehead and  your nose bridge.add a hint of blush,this will add colour to your cheeks for that extra glow,apply a bronzer to your cheekbones and on your nose bridge.

Step 10: Play up your lips with a plum lipsticks. apply using a lip brush,start at the middle to the outer corner and blend.

Step 11: Finish up your look with a dust of powder all over the face down to your jawline and neck.
