I decided to do a video tutorial because being a makeup artist I get so many people asking how to do a quick makeup, and mine usually takes around 7 minutes or less, so here is what I do from start to finish. I rush along to make the video shorter, but this is basically all about some simple techniques that you can use to create just about any look.
Don’t forget that when you do any makeup, try to be in the best lighting possible. During the day, that means natural light. This helps with the wow factor if you go outside and see yourself and it’s like, “Oh my god, what have I done” kind of comment.
Please note: This is just a basic “I am in such a hurry” type Makeup, obviously. So as this is not what I would be doing if I were on set, this is just my personal “quickie” if you will. And of course I picked a day when I had the least amount of sleep, so it just goes to show what a little makeup can do if you are hagsville. Enjoy!
**One more note: I start off by saying I am using a liquid concealer, but what I mean is a liquid foundation. Sorry about that, that’s what happens when you rush! 🙂
Foundation: I used Smashbox, and though I enjoy them I would prefer Laura Mercier or Bobbi Brown for a middle of the line type foundation. I don’t usually buy the extremely expensive stuff because, while they are amazing, I feel I can get just as much out of other brands at half the price.
Blush: I LOVE Stila Convertible Color. I use it everyday and on all my talent in set. It is a cream, it looks so natural and goes right into your skin, and they have THE BEST COLORS of all time. I’m a diehard fan, and every celebrity I have worked on gets converted to this immediately.
Bronzer: Bronzers are so easy to buy I think. They can be a compact or loose powder, just try a few and see which one works best. I used a Stila Bronzer but I am totally unfaithful and use all different kinds. Don’t spend too much money here.
Highlighter!!!! The key ingredient. I used “Kitten” by Stila, in a compact powder form. LOVE THIS. You can also use NARS in Orgasm. I love them both. When in doubt, I will even use a shimmer eyeshadow.
Mascara: Either Full n Soft by Mabeline or L’Oreal Voluminous.
Any questions??? Feel free to ask!!!
