Cosmetics, also known as make-up, are substances used to enhance the appearance or odor of the human body. They are generally mixtures of chemical compounds, some being derived from natural sources (such as coconut oil) and some being synthetics.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Certain make-up brands will suit your skin better than others, depending on your skin type. You need to first think about what type of skin you have - for instance, if you have dry or sensitive skin, or greasy skin, you will be looking for different types of products that will offer an appropriate balance.
Nowadays there are sophisticated make-up application methods, such as contouring, that promise to slim down or enhance facial features, as desired.
