Last month I came across this magazine in the office call People Style Watch.
While I was reading People Style Watch magazine. I saw a list of makeup trick and tips. I was astonish to come across certain tips I been using for years from advice of makeup artist and stores makeup professionals, who was kind enough to share with me. Now, I'm going to share some of those tips I know and practice on me with you, also found in the magazine with the names of who stated the tips or tricks. It's shocking to me how makeup artist think alike.
1-Jewel-Toned Eyeliner works for all skin tones and eye colors say celeb makeup artist Tina Turnbow for a pretty pop of color, trace the pencil along the inner or outer corners of your eyes or do both for bolder take. ( I try this for an event with blue eyeliner got alot of compliment)
2-Put Foundation on your lids prepping lids with a thin layer of liquid foundation helps eye shadow stay put. It also makes blending easy and helps prevents creasing says makeup artist Diane Kendal. Let foundation dry before applying shadow. (One step I always do)
3-Use moisturizer as highlighter after you apply foundation, put moisturizer on the tips of your fingers and lightly pat it onto your nose, cheeks or anywhere else you want a little dewiness. The extra layer of hydration makes you look more fresh and radiant says makeup artist Val Garland. ( I been doing this from the first time I knew you could highlight with it)
4-Mix blush & blonzer for a pretty glow-sweeping bronzer along your cheekbones and adding blush to the apples of cheeks make every complexion look brighter, you just need to find your best combo. (One of my favorite trick to do to myself especially now in warm weather when I want a sunkiss look)
5- Double up on brow pencil for a natural look when you mix two different tones (one that is a shade darker than your brow and one a shade lighter), your arches will look defined but not fake. With feathery strokes, enhance your brows' shape with the darker color, then add fullness with the lighter one, says makeup artist Sil Bruinsma. (This really works)
6. Get a whiter smile with coral lipstick adding coral to the center of lips on top of a neutral color like beige gives teeth a brighter look. It neutralizes any yellowness says Oresman. (Smile looks brighter)
7- Enhance any eye shape with liner open up small eyes by lining just along the top lash line, says Schlip show off larger eyes by framing them with liner on both top and bottom lash lines. ( I do this on special occasion went I want my eyes to stand out)
8-Shrink pores with a mask using one with mud and clay once or twice a week will draw out skin-clogging impurities that can make pores look bigger, says Dr. Tanzi. ( I do this with homemade mask it works as good to)
9-Apply moisturizer to damp skin put on your face cream or lotion within three minutes of washing your face to help it absorb quickly into skin. Moisturizer always works better with a little water, says Dr. Tanzi. (It absorb really fast)
10-Wash sensitive skin with cool water anything hotter than lukewarm water may be irritating to your skin, says Joanna Vargas founder of Joanna Vargas Salon. Cleanse at the sink instead of in the shower. (Less redness)
11- Moisturize a dry scalp with vitamin E poke a hole in a vitamin E capsule and rub the contents directly on your scalp to relieve dryness or itchiness, says Kyle White, lead colorist at Oscar Blandi salon. (Works well on elbows and feet)
12-Hydrate cuticles with chapstick rub lip balm on cuticles to ease rough, dry skin on the go says Jin Soon Choi manicurist and founder of N.Y.C's Jin Soon Natural hand & Foot Spas. (This tips I have done for years with Vaseline now chapstick work well and is the to go for me now)
