The Face Set
Tip: Concealer doesn't just blur imperfections, it highlights too. Simply apply concealer in an inverse triangle underneath eyes; then using the concealer brush gently blend along the edges.
Tip: To create even coverage, use light sweeping strokes across the entire face using the liquid foundation brush. For a seamless coverage use light sweeps along the hairline, ears, and decolletage (neck and collar bone) area.
Tip: I'm using my very last photo to the setting technique using the Powder/Face Brush. Once all other makeup has been applied Lightly sweep a small amount of mattifying or setting powder to the face. This will seal the makeup, and create a flawless even look.
The Eye Set
Tip: When applying defining color, start on the outer corner of the lid, and brush color along the crease as well as the edges of the lid.
Tip: Lightly buffing color layers together will create a more smokey and dramatic look.
Tip: Most eyeliners including cream based ones , may be a bit difficult to manipulate even with the smudger. Lightly wetting the tip of the smudger will help eyeliner to spread easier.
Tip: Start off by curling close to the lid as possible then slowly move out to the end of the lashes for more uniform curls.
Tip: To optimize the separation of your lashes, gently comb lashes a few seconds after applying mascara.
The Cheek Set
Tip: There are several ways of applying cheek color, but I prefer to sweep a light dusting just underneath the apples of the cheeks. For a little more softness gently blend with fingertips.
Tip: A natural sun-kissed glow is very easy to achieve. Sweep bronzer along areas of the face where the natural light hits (i.e forehead, bridge of nose, and cheeks. Finish by sealing with a mattifying face powder for a more airbrushed look.
