Camera ready with 5 products in 5 minutes!
I was feeling a little bored today, so I decided why not try a little make up party … in only 5 minutes! NBD.
Beginning with a clean face, I decided to show myself with no makeup/filter to reveal the difference between perfect lighting and, well, not so perfect lighting.
So many times we look at models and actresses and think, “Ahhh I wish!” But, as you may have heard, lighting, photoshop, and professional makeup artists have a big impact on that!
So, I decided to share a red carpet secret of mine to being camera ready in 5 minutes or less.
Don’t worry if it takes a little longer the first couple of times. Before long, you will be using these tricks with products used on your favorite celebs in better time than me!
I introduce: Laura Mercier. I LOVE them! They have awesome coverup, smooth eyeliner pencils, and high quality products.
Number 1 – Concealer. I used Undercover Pot-2 Camouflage for a little coverup under my eyes; on my eyelid, up the brow line (just below my eyebrows); and on problem spots.
Number 2 – Eye stick. The Caviar Stick Eye Color in Plum is perfect for this. It goes on smooth, shades easily, and offers a sexy color that crosses between eyeliner and shadow.
Don’t judge the fact that you (and I) may resemble a raccoon at this stage; we have to appreciate the process. 🙂
Now, all I did was grab a smooth concealer brush (but you can choose a small, shading sponge), and massage the color under my eyes and along the base of my brow bone. Allowing it to naturally fade out over my eyelid.
Number 3 – Blush or Bronzer. If you make the fish face …
You can trace the blush or bronzer along the base of the cheek bones.
Number 4 – Mascara! You’ve got to make those gorgeous eyes pop with a touch (or 3) of mascara, being careful not to get it in or on your eye.
Last, but certainly not least:
Number 5 – Lipgloss! I used Laura Mercier’s Lip Glacé Azalea for a pop of pink to match the shine!
With the perfect lighting… of course! 🙂
