Makeup artist tip!

Before you begin applying makeup, always tweeze any stray eyebrow hairs first.


Applying foundation with a brush

1. For a natural-looking complexion, select a sheer foundation(a) and apply it with a foundation brush(b). Blend outward and downward from the center of the face and use your fingertips where needed (i.e. near the hairline and on areas that require a fuller, more built-up coverage).

2. Conceal the eyelids, dark under-eye circles, redness and spots. Apply concealer(c) to the necessary areas with a brush(d); then, for a natural finish, blend by “patting” it into the skin with the pad of your finger. (more…)

Makeup Ideas for Fall 2009

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

Winter blues.

Change it up this season and team a smoky eye with a dramatic lip. Define the eyes with matte shades of navy and pair them with a bright, matte, blue-based pink lippy. Wearing strong eyes and lips together is reminiscent of the ’80s, but if it’s done the right way it is easy to modernize.

Beige beauty.

Play up your eyes using lighter shades of eyeshadow.  Use a wash of warm metallic beige around the entire eye, and open up the inner corner with a frosty white highlighter. Further accentuate your eyes by feathering a dark chocolate-colored pencil through the roots of the top lashes. Don’t draw a line in one movement, but instead use a series of short strokes to apply the color; this will look natural and create the illusion of thicker, denser lashes. Apply a generous coat of mascara, and softly fill in the brow for a more groomed look.
