Tips from an Edmonds make-up artist

Edmonds make-up artistWe all know that make-up artists can perform cosmetic miracles. And if you’ve ever seen a professional make-up artist in Edmonds working on a face, you’ll appreciate how they “finish” a face in a totally different way to how you’d usually do your make-up at home.

Below are some make-up tips you can use from the comfort of your own home to assure that your face looks polished and fresh all day.
Leave your blush until last: Always apply your blush – not lipstick – last. The majority of us finish our faces with lipstick. But you can only really judge the right amount of blush to apply once lip and eye color are applied. Blush is a product that among other things, creates a link between the eyes and the lips which means its intensity can only be measured accurately when the rest of the face has been made up.

Don’t go orange: For a completely natural look, apply a veil of face powder before applying bronzing powder or a powder blush. This will make blending much easier and the overall effect will last far longer.

Get a soft-focus face: When you’ve finished your make-up, always apply a veil of bronzing powder to the outline of the face. This will soften the features.

Don’t overcompensate lips: With lips of differing size, it’s always better to make two small corrections rather than one larger one. So the larger lip should be reduced and the smaller lip extended using a lip pencil that’s as close to your natural lip color as possible.
