Makeup advice

Our makeup artists have compiled a list of their hottest makeup tips. Follow these basic and advanced makeup tips and looking naturally more beautiful, is easy.

A beautiful makeover begins with the right foundation. Most women have yellow based skin. This includes most Caucasian and all Asian, Latin and African women. This is one of the most important makeup tips!

When we women with yellow-based skin wear foundation that is too pink or orange, it often looks artificial and two-toned. This is because the undertone in the foundation "clashes" with our natural yellow-based skin.

To create the look naturally flawless skin, you must wear a foundation with a yellow base. Sacha manufactures the only yellow-based foundations in the world. They perfectly match every complexion, leaving your skin looking flawless and natural-looking. You never look orangey, pasty or un-natural. When you walk into a room people notice you and not your makeup!


    * Clear healthy skin is the perfect canvas for makeup. Use Sacha's simple but effective cleansing routine: Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize, Renew.
    * For excessively oily skin use our Purifying Gel Cleanser to gently wash away the excess oils.
    * Regardless of skin color or skin type you must use a daily moisturizer with at least SPF 15 sun protection. This is one of the most important makeup tips. For dry skin use Sacha's Hydration Plus Daily Moisturizer. For oily skin use Sacha's Hydrating Daily Moisturizer. These moisturizers can be worn alone or as excellent under makeup bases.


      For a great makeover you must start with the right foundation. Whereas eye shadow, lipstick, and blush accent the face, it is the foundation that sets the tone for a woman's appearance. Sacha's foundations are all yellow-based.
      If you are like most women, you have yellow-based skin and must wear a yellow-based foundation. Our Sacha Foundations are available in cream, liquid, or dual activ (powder and foundation in one). Test your foundation on the jaw line or forehead.
    * Sacha foundation shades "jump" equally. On your jaw line, apply the shade you believe to be closest to your skin tone. Apply the next lighter shade above and the next darker shade below. The shade that disappears into your skin, is the correct shade for your complexion.


    * Set your foundations with a Sacha Loose Powder. Keep your compact powder handy for touch ups during the day. If you 'shine' a lot you should use an oil absorbent powder such as Sacha's Ultra Matte Powders in Light, Medium or Dark.


    * When applying blush use a darker shade to contour your face and "lift" your cheekbones. Apply from the earlobe downward to mid-cheek so you do not leave a"blob"of color on the cheek. Use light colors of blush to highlight.


    * Use Sacha's eye shadows to reflect your every mood. With a bit of practice you can easily master how to apply your eye shadow. When applying eyeshadow, remember that dark colors recede features and light colors highlight.
    * Apply the lightest shade over the entire eyelid.
    * Apply the medium shade on the lower eyelid.
    * Apply the darkest shade in the outer corner of the eye to create depth.
    * Apply eyeliner with short strokes, starting form
    * the center of the eye and working towards the corners. Mascara finishes your makeup. If you have dark eyes use black, navy, dark brown or clear mascara.


    * Choose a lipstick which reflects your personal psyche. There are 48 colors from which to choose in the Sacha range.
    * Use a lip brush when applying lipstick. It will not only help define the contours of your mouth, but also helps to control the amount of color that is applied.
    * Applying powder lightly over the lips before applying lipstick helps it to stay on longer.
    * Use Sacha's Vitamin E Stick under your lipstick to condition and protect your lips from becoming chapped and dry.
    * Use Sacha Lip Gloss alone to give a light, natural but finished look or over your lipstick to enhance its color.
    * For easy lipstick stain removal, apply glycerine to affected area and wash as usual.


    * Select a nail polish to match the general tones of your makeup. For instance if you used natural shades on your eyes, lips and cheeks, then your nail color should also be natural.


    * Use Kamaflage Cover Cream to conceal your skin blemishes. Kamaflage is yellow based and like our foundations will perfectly match your skin tone. Use it as a concealer or as a foundation.


    * Use Sacha's Fix It Spray as the last step of your makeup routine. Spray from 8 - 12 inches. Your makeup will stay in place longer and will leave you with a more finished look.
