10 make-up tips not to miss!
by celebrity/LA based make-up artist Edgar Anthony Arreola
NEVER EVER LEAVE HOME WIITHOUT……
1. Keep your summer glow all year. Makeup-like shimmers and liquid body foundations a shade or two darker can be layered to create a faux tan. Dusting on bronzing powder gives skin a subtle healthy glow.
2. “Moisture Surge” from Clinique is amazing to keep skin hydrated.
3. For a defined brow choose a brow powder a shade darker than hair color for ultimate pefection.
4. Try YSL water proof mascara comes in four different colors.
5. Does your concealer crease? “Three Custom Color Specialists” concealer palette is amazing; mix and match to any skintone.
DON’’T EVEN THIINK ABOUT IIT……
1. Lip liner extending beyond the lip line is a No-No unless you are being cast for a Disney cartoon character. Line at the lip line ONLY.
2. Dark lip liner and light lip stick or gloss—totally 80’s. Stay away! If you like dark lip liner try shading in the entire lip lightly, and then apply a coat of clear gloss, instead, of a lighter lipstick shade —especially if it’s a red or dark colored lip liner.
3. Over tweezing your eyebrows. As one gets older, hair starts to become more sparse. So, if you tweeze too much there is a possibility that the brow hair might not come back. Tweeze to your natural shape, arch and clean up any strays. Brows should look natural.
4. Using the wrong color foundation. I’ve seen this so many times. For the best skintone match pick three different shade foundations closest to your tone, and line them down from your cheek to your neck; then choose whichever fits best after blending well. Not having a matching base affects your color coordination. You can also miss out on color palettes that might look terrific on you.
5. Ladies unless you are under 8 years old let’s “try” to keep glitter OFF your face. A tad could be OK, but too much looks “clowny.” No glitter is a good makeup choice unless you are on a stage.
