Oooooo, this may be a minute……tutorials are really hard for me…..but I AM working on conducting an online class, so stay tuned!!
Sidebar…….the best way I’ve learned to apply foundation is with the Beauty Blender……you dampen it, squeeze out excess water and dip into your foundation…..trust me, it’s THEE best way to apply your foundation AND concealer…..you will get a flawless application each time. Sephora sells them http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?keyword=beauty%20blender&skuId=1540343&productId=P379832&_requestid=97248
Hello there and thank you so much!!
I use Purple Haze, Sketch and Fig 1 a lot…..those are all by M.A.C. and are Matte Finishes.
For the more vibrant purple, I use M.A.C’s Violet Pigment….as well as Inglot’s Pigment shadows in #35 and #73……hope this helps!
Hi there! I know exactly what you mean……..you should try M.A.C’s Pro Longwear concealer…..it adheres to skin like a charm…..and set it with loose powder (my face is Ben Nye)…..but the trick with the loose powder is apply it with a sponge and let it sit on skin/concealer before evening it out……this allows it to seep into your pores causing an even finish and longer wear. If this doesn’t work, email me!! Drini@EyeDreamOfDrini.com
You should try to spend no more than an hour on a face, but preferably 30-45 minutes.
In reality, if you’re working on one person, you want to provide them with quality, not quantity and you don’t want them to feel rushed, so to the best of your ability take your time, be sure you’ve given them your best makeup application b/c once you are complete, their face is now a representation of your work.
The best advice I can give you to help speed up the application, is to time yourself the next time you do a face, don’t rush, just apply makeup like you normally would and when you are complete, if you are pleased with the time then continue doing what you’re used to, if you’re not, then decide where you spend your most time on the face and try to fine-tune it.
I take longest on brows……once the brows are to my liking, the rest of the face for me is a piece of cake. I’m sure to lay everything out ahead of time and pull all my essentials to the front…..hope this helps!
**waving back** and thank you for the belated bday wish and for the love!
I used @BlackOpalBeauty foundation stick on her in Beautiful Bronze and set it w/ Ben Nye’s Topaz powder.
As far as shadows, I don’t recall….I’m so sorry :(
But as far as how I come up w/ looks, I ask what color they’re wearing, their likes and dislikes and I just go from there. I prefer working w/ color so if someone wants that, it’s very inspiring!
