Lose your ability to get lost in a crowd with thee head-turning makeup tricks.

Fast & Fabulous – follow these tips to bring out your beautiful best in the blink of an eye.

Eyes: apply a like color to the brown bone and inside the corner of the eye. This will create the illusion that you applied a medium shade to your eyelid. Add a single swipe of mascara, and you’re done.

Cheeks: Sweep a light to medium cheek color along cheekbones for just the right hint of color.

Lips: A quick kiss of color to the lips, and you’re ready to go! A lip gloss draws out lips beautifully.

Easy & Elegant - Getting the hottest runway look is easier than you think. Follow these tips for a glamorous look that works for both day and evening.

Eyes: Prep your lids with a primer. Use a flat eye definer brush to apply a light eye color on brow bone, lid and along the inner third of your lower lashes. Then use a contoured eye crease brush to apply a darker eye color in the crease starting at the outer corner and blending well with the light color. Use a black eyeliner pencil to draw your cat eye first, then trace the line with black liquid eyeliner. Coat your lashes with a single swipe of mascara.

Cheeks: Give cheeks a glamorous glow with a light to medium blush.

Lips: Lips in classic red hues are a must for this elegant look. Line lips with red liner, and then apply a red lipstick. A shiny lip gloss completes the look. 

Smoky & Sophisticated - You’ll take their breath away with mesmerizing eyes in rich smoky hues. Complete the look with lips glossed in neutral tones, and you’ll leave them speechless too.

Eyes: Begin with an eye primer – it’s a must for this smoky application. Apply a light honey eye color to the brow bone and along the inner third of your lower lashes. Then apply a dark chocolate eye color over your eyelid using a flat eye definer brush. Stop the color where it meets the lighter color on the brow bone. Then sweep a navy color over the entire eyelid with a flat eye definer brush, stopping at the crease. Be sure to blend the colors smoothly to the edges using a clean brush. Next, draw a thick, dark line of black eyeliner along the top and bottom lashlines. Apply two to three coats of mascara to add major drama.

Cheeks: Give cheeks a sophisticated glow with a medium color blush.

Lips: Lips in gorgeous neutral tones are the perfect complement to smoky sophisticated eyes. Line lips with a neutral liner, and then apply tanned lipstick. A matching lip gloss completes the look.

Bridal Beauty Tips

When the right shade is applied properly, a great foundation is the perfect start to a flawless finish. But with so many formulas and shades to choose from, selecting the right one to build on can sometimes be confusing. Here are a few foundation facts that can help you find your perfect match.

Mineral Powder Foundation combines the feel of a powder with the coverage of a foundation. It is a weightless, skin-perfecting powder that provides coverage and blends with the sweep of a brush. For a flawless look, a specially designed mineral foundation brush should be used when applying this type of foundation.

Medium-Coverage Liquid Foundation is generally best for normal to oily skin. It provides even coverage and helps control excess oil.

Full-Coverage Liquid Foundation is generally best for normal to dry skin. It helps hydrate skin while providing coverage.

Creme-To-Powder Foundation is a two-in-one product that glides on like a cream to hide imperfections. It works well with all skin types and dries to a soft, powdery matte finish.

Tinted Moisturizer can be a fabulous option for on-the-go sheer color coverage. It’s perfect for an active lifestyle and has the added bonus of sunscreen and moisturization.

Find the Shade for You
Once you’ve found the perfect formula to fit your needs, the next step in achieving complexion perfection is finding the right shade. In addition to evening out skin tone and helping protect the skin from environmental damage, foundation can make the skin look smooth and flawless. Here are a few tips for nailing down the perfect hue.

Yellow-based foundations work well on almost everyone. Foundations with a little yellow will even out almost every complexion. Yellow minimizes red, which may be inherent in skin’s coloring as a result of tanning, aging or broken capillaries.

Test a shade on your jawline or cheek. The correct shade should literally disappear into the skin and blend with the skin tone of the neck rather than the face.

When trying a new shade, it is best to test in natural light. Also be sure to allow a few minutes for the foundation to adapt to your skin before making a decision on the color.
