ZAlebs recently caught up with the actress to know a bit more about her makeup tips and here they are:


1. Products to use when removing making

"You always have to remove your makeup properly, your skin is everything so when applying makeup, I tend to use coconut oil and then I use a makeup remover, I usually use Nivea for my makeup removals and then I wash it after."

2. Get some rest

"It's important to get some rest, you don't want to wake up with a puffy face and red eyes which can mess up your makeup a bit."

"Always go for the right color by foundation your skin tone, take some time to go to a makeup store so they can check you out."

4. Blend

"Take some time to really make sure that there are no harsh lines and distinct lines that show make sure that everything blends nicely from face to neck. Also on your skin, we don't want to see patches and the only way to avoid that is to blend, blend, blend."
