MAKEUP ARTIST TIPS – LIPS & CHEEKS

  • Have a too blue based
    lipstick? Mix a dot of yellow concealer into your lipstick, or apply a
    yellow-based loose powder on clean lips, and apply lipstick on top. There will
    be just enough warmth in the product to take the edge off a too cool/blue
    shade.

  • Want to update your lipsticks to the new
    cool blue based tones? Apply a navy blue eye pencil, or eye shadow on lips and
    apply your lipstick on top….just a little will do and you’ll have a new
    shade. A soft, brown eye shadow applied on lips first will darken any too
    light shade.

  • Make your own deep lipstick color by
    mixing blue eye shadow and red blush on your lips. Apply a lip balm on top and
    you’re set. The most fun part is that every time you try this, you can
    experiment and get a different version every time.

  • Use your shimmer highlighter sticks from
    spring/summer to highlight lipsticks. Apply on a clean mouth first, and then
    your dull lipstick on top. An instant frosted shade.

  • The color of the moment is the ‘bitten’
    lip look. Just take your rosy blush and apply dry on lips. Apply your Vitamin
    E stick, or gloss on top with a lip blush. Gel cheek colors work great for
    this too.

  • A quick dusting of shimmering body powder
    or an iridescent eye shadow over the high points of the face, (cheekbones,
    chin, top of nose, eyelids, across forehead..) a quick day to night look.

  • A model told me this trick! She runs a
    Gold Shimmer stick through her blonde hair! Instant shimmer and highlights,
    especially around the face….

  • Use a Concealer Pencil on your lips
    first, fill in, and then apply an old, dark lipstick. The concealer pencil
    lightens up the lipstick by about 3-4 shades….

  • A warm brick eyeshadow is the perfect all
    over color for lips, cheeks, eyes and a little lip gloss on top and you’re
    off!

  • Find a blush brush that perfectly fits
    the size of the apple of your cheek when you smile. Anything bigger than that
    and you’ll get blush where you don’t want it. You really don’t need a huge
    blush brush for color, those are meant for shimmery powders………

  • Pick up your blush by lightly tapping the
    blush with the tips of the bristles. If you are sweeping the brush across the
    color, you’ll pick up about 10 x more color than you need, and you waste a lot
    of product. Just tap the ends of the bristles about 2-3 times onto the color.
    Shake off any excess. You should barely be able to see the color on the brush.
    Don’t worry, you do have enough on!

  • When applying blush, don’t “sweep” or
    “stroke” the color across the cheeks. You’ll usually end up streaking the
    color on, and then having to go back to ‘correct’ and ‘blend’. Instead, smile,
    and tap on gently going across your cheeks. By tapping the color onto the
    brush, and then tapping in onto the cheeks…….. you’ll avoid excess color,
    streaking and more. Tapping on blends the color for you and you can always add
    more if you want.

  • Always swipe your blush brush across a
    Kleenex to clean off any excess, or pick up your powder brush (with no extra
    powder on) and sweep over and blend your blush into your skin. You’ll get a
    softer, more ‘real’ look to your blush.

  • OOPS! Okay, you look like a clown, wrong color, too much……..now what?
    Easy! With a clean dry beauty sponge, pick up a light layer of loose powder and ‘erase’
    as much off as possible. Too bright or too dark? Take a slightly dampened
    sponge and clean off as much as you can. The water will pick upand ‘dilute’
    the color………it just may be enough to fix it and look ok! “Blush!”–
