THE PROVICI MISSION: to bring out your inner celebrity!
While physically this is done externally to your look, our clients experience an internal change - an excitement, a freedom and revitalization.

PROVICI Makeup Tips
In order to give the illusion of defined cheek bones you must use two shades darker than your skin tone. First make a fish face and apply PROVICI'S Bronzelite Bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks. Second, smile and brush the high lighter from the apples of your cheeks all the way to your temples. Third, give yourself a kiss in the mirror and you’re good to go. The contrasting tones help to define the cheek bone shape.
Getting Ready Quick!
Not enough time to do a quick touch up? Have no fear because you can always spice up your look with any of PROVICI'S bold lip colours! Take Provici’s, Black Bubbly Lip Stain for a test drive when you are in the fast lane. This gives you the chance to change your day look to night look and it’s easy to do at a red light on the way to the restaurant from work.
A tip for opening up your eyes, especially if you have lashes that don't have a natural curl to them is to use an eye lash curler. Place the lash curler at the roots of your lashes, then slowly "walk" it out to the tips while gently pumping the curler. Another good tip is to tilt your wrist upwards while doing this. Then just finish off with mascara.
You'll be amazed at how much of a difference it makes for your eyes. Try using PROVICI'S Lush Black Mascara for thickening and lengthening.
A Smaller Forehead
If you think you have a larger forehead and don't want to get bangs there is something you can do to give the illusion of a smaller forehead.
You will want to reach for a matte bronzer - try PROVICI'S Bronzelite Bronzer. Apply the bronzer along the hairline to create the illusion of a shadow. You want to swirl the brush in the bronzer, and tap off any excess to keep the shade light and natural, and swirl in light circles for blending.
For the prettiest finish for your lips, run a damp toothbrush over your lips to exfoliate any dry skin. Post-scrub, lipstick will glide on without caking. Really good trick especially when the cold weather comes.
Every face has natural shadows, and you'll look better if you brighten them. To find the shady spots just smile at yourself in the mirror. You'll see darker areas like your cupid's bow, under your bottom lip, around the corners of your nose and at the inner corners of your eyes.
To lighten those areas, dab on concealer in one shade lighter than your everyday concealer, set it with powder and then go over those areas with a matte cream eye shadow for extra brightening.
Outsmart your Mascara
Want to use waterproof mascara but hate wrestling to remove it? Apply a coat of regular mascara first, then top it with waterproof. This way the waterproof formula locks onto the other mascara instead of your lashes, so it comes off more easily. Try using PROVICI'S Hypoallergenic Waterproof Mascara.
Lipstick Bleeding #1
If you want to prevent your lipstick from bleeding, or if you have fine lines around your lips, coat your lips going slightly outside the lip line with a clear balm like plain ChapStick before applying the lipstick. It works like invisible spackle.
Lipstick Bleeding #2
Another tip for lipstick bleeding is to outline your lips with concealer to act as a barrier. Try using PROVICI'S Concealer enriched with Aloe and Vitamin E.
What most of us do when looking to try a new lipstick is we swipe the color on the back of our hand to see if it flatters. A better way to tell is to test the lipstick on your fingertip. By doing this you can hold the color next to your face to see how it looks. No mirror? Your finger is still a better gauge, since it's closer in color and texture to your lips than the back of your hand.
