Makeup secrets EVERY woman should know – We all put on makeup (at least some of the time), but is your technique yielding the best possible results? Here, Kimberly Soane, the director of artistry at Bobbi Brown, offers up some simple pointers to make sure we’re using everything from concealer to bronzer to mascara right.
Avoid putting concealer or foundation on your eyelids as a base as it will smear your eye makeup. If you want sheer coverage, use your fingers to apply foundation. If you want polished, medium or full coverage, make use of a brush.
Always apply powder in the areas that are your shiniest first, which is mostly your T-zone; that is, the across your forehead and down the middle of your eyes, through your nose to your mouth. Apply a light dust of the powder everywhere else.
In order to even out your skin tone, it is advisable that you apply bronzer on your neck, face and chest. However, be observant to know when every area is the same colour.
It is recommended that you smile first when applying blush, then start on the round of your cheeks. Blend the blush back towards the top of your ear, then down towards your jawline.
