Makeup Tips and Tricks:
1. For complexion: priming your skin is key. Always use this basic 3-step system before applying anything. Cleanse. Tone. Moisturize. But priming goes further than that. A good priming should achieve 4 goals: prepare for any coverage, even out any color correction, establish an inner glow, and maintain the illusion of smooth skin. Priming also creates that natural barrier of protection between your skin and your make-up.
2. Blush: don’t be afraid of pigment. For a rosey all-day glow, try a cream blush, set with a powder, and finish with a soft powder blush on the apples of the cheeks. Then, for soft contour, take your blush brush and sweep a bit on your temples, chin, and bridge of the nose.
3. Lips: for that summer pout, apply a creamy shimmer product on your cupid’s bow and the center of the lower lip. This simple step will set your lips and keep you fresh, even when it is 100+ degrees outside.
4. Eyes: they are the windows to our inner selves. If you haven’t got that full 8 hours of sleep and you wake up to find that puffy darkness under your eyes, refrain from lining the under eye. Not only will that close off smaller set eyes, but will draw attention to the imperfections we all get stuck with some days. Finish off with a blue/navy mascara, establishing the appearance of whiter, more awake, beautiful eyes.
