Emma Wareus keeps her skin looking fab by frequently keeping it fairly natural. When she does glam it up, her naturally healthy skin makes for an effortless transition from a day to night time look.

Emma’s signature hairstyle is that of a short and feminine bob. Although she has had her dark locks in longer lengths, pulled back or left loose, she often reverts to her favourite hairdo.

A natural or manicured hand is what Emma wears most of the time. She does change it up with colour occasionally though, according to her dress code.

Make-Up: 
Emma has a facial bone structure that is every makeup artists dream. Complementing a blonde head of hair, she uses a lip colour with a dark grey under tones and a deep auburn lip.

Her eyes are framed with a black cat eye line and a medium shade of mauve, bringing definition to her eyelids. She wears a medium brown base colour with light brown highlights accentuating her cheeks bones. With a touch of an auburn cheek line, she gets that overall pop in her make-up look. She gets a thumbs up from us!
