Below is a list of some of the makeup do’s and don’ts that Sona go’s over in her video:

|· Use a regular compact powder to set your makeup in place||· Use a finishing/translucent powder to set your makeup in place|
|· Use a warm bronzer to contour your face||· Use a taupe bronzer to contour your face|
|· Use sparkly dark shades on both the crease and lid of the eye, while not blending the shades together||· Use matte warm tone colors on the crease of your eye, and sparkly shades directly on the eyelid. BLEND!|
|· Apply false eyelashes with a thick band||· Apply false eyelashes with a very thin band|
|· Drag the lip liner along your outer lip line, while not filling in the rest of your lips with the same color||· Make small strokes with your lip liner and fill in the lips with the liner to make them look naturally fuller|
|· Use a lipstick that is a lot lighter or darker than your lip liner||· Use a lipstick or lip gloss that matches your lip liner and blends nicely together|
Of course these are just basic tips and tricks. Everyone should do their makeup however they want or feel comfortable with.
