If you missed, or didn’t have time to sit through, all the Facebook Live videos I did while at New York Fashion Week this past season, not to worry! I created a video “Pro Makeup Secrets For Flawless Makeup Application” that’s a mash up of all the amazing tips my makeup artist colleagues had to share.
I asked them to divulge their very best secrets and advice for getting makeup that looks radiant, 3 dimensional, and REAL!
Come on, who wants to wear a mask of caked on heavy foundation or contour that’s over the top in their normal lives? OK maybe a few of you do, but I’m gonna guess that is not the majority of you reading.
I realize this is a bit longer than normal video, but man is it chock full of incredible tips from some of the fashion industry’s most respected makeup artists in the world. It’s really a special treat.
We’re all saying the same thing – so pay attention!
What’s funny is after mashing together all these videos some really strong themes evolved around these pro makeup tips for flawless makeup application – that I didn’t even realize at the time were happening.
It seems like all of us makeup artists are saying so many of the same things!
So that tells me you’ll want to pay close attention to these repeating themes, so you can look as gorgeous as possible when you’re doing your own makeup at home.
