Today you will learn all about brushes for lipstick application as well as eye shadow application. Make sure you don’t miss out on next weeks newsletter, part four of the series as I will tell you about different types of tools such as e yelash curlers, tweezers and eyebrow combs…

For eye shadows …

You’re thinking… brace yourself… But no! It is much easier than it seems. You only need three brushes. One for application, another for blending and a beveled one for finer lines.

The first is used to load the eyelid with the product. Always use small movements and use the flat side of the brush.

The second is used for blending the edge of the eye shadow, which means, not “erasing” everything, just the edge!

And the third, the beveled one, which is cut at an angle, will be used to create any type of line effect or for blending.

Professional Secret:
Always choose eye shadow brushes that are not very stiff or too flat. I’ve been using the same brush made by Mac for 9 years. The number 239 is the easiest to use. I always recommend it to my students.

For the lips …

Although it appears that it’s not, using a brush to apply lipstick is very important in order to make it last longer.

How many times have they asked me… “What can I do to make my lip sticks last longer?” A million!

The answer is as easy as this, use a brush to mix the lip stick with the lip liner. Before that, of course, moisturize the lips very well.
The best are the synthetic-hair brushes that aren’t too thin, in order to be able to mix the textures well and not leave brushmarks.

Professional Secret:
When cleaning, always try to press it so that it does not lose its shape or widen. Many times the hair splits. If this happens, cut the hairs that have come out of place with hair scissors, in order to maintain its shape as long as possible.

When applying makeup, not only is it important to do a look that’s flattering, you should also follow the styles and trends of the season.

In this post, I’m going to let you in on all of the secrets to following the latest makeup trends.


Satin-textured skin is big right now. It will continue to be a major influence in the fall/winter season, sometimes including even bolder touches of shine to highlight parts of the face.

Another trend we’ve been seeing this season is contrasting warm and cool tones. The eye has also been fairly defined with intensely pigmented shadows.

Tricks for achieving impeccable makeup:


When applying shimmery products, whether powders or creams, it’s important to carefully control where the product falls so it doesn’t end up in areas such as under the eyes or areas with imperfections, which will be more obvious when shiny.


Remember that not all skin types are suited to a satin texture. If imperfections are present, choose a foundation with more coverage and a matte finish, which will be much more flattering.


Make the eyes pop by playing with the contrast and balance of warm and cool colors that help each other stand out. But be very careful when blending these colors. Remember that not all colors look good when blended together, which is why you should use a color in between the two of them that can be blended with both. Another trick you can use is to apply them right next to each other without blending.


A trendy makeup look, step-by-step:


Apply moisturizer over clean skin for a smooth, uniform base.

Apply concealer to undereye area and to any other imperfections that may be seen. Blend well to integrate with the skin.


Use a liquid foundation in the same shade as the skin tone. To achieve a natural effect, apply with a synthetic bristle brush. If needed, use a makeup sponge to help blend the foundation.


Once you’ve applied the foundation, mattify the entire face with the mineral powder using a large brush. That way the skin will be matte, but still maintain its natural shine.


On the eyes, start by applying the base shadow, which in this case can also be used as a highlighter. Apply to the arch of the eyebrow to illuminate the lid and on other high points on the face.


Apply the medium shadow on the lid, or if you choose, you can do a combination of two shadows.

Now intensify the look with pencil in the same color as the shadow, but a deeper shade. If you prefer, you can also use black pencil, shadow, or eyeliner to line the eyes. Remember to focus on the roots of the eyelashes, both inside and outside the eye.





I know I know, I haven’t posted in well…forever.  But after last weekend I decided I needed to put this up.  It’s just too easy and too sexy.

Last Friday I went out to eat with my man, just like I do almost every Friday. Our plan was to check out a new restaurant that’s fairly modern and casual.

And just like I do every time I go to a casual restaurant, I put on a look that always works for me: jeans, a sexy top, bangles, and heels. For makeup, of course I decided on my “belle of the ball” look: a classic smoky eye in black. But once I had my makeup on and was ready to leave, I decided to give things a twist. In today’s post, I’ll tell you how you can do it too…

But how many different ways are there to do a smoky eye? Lots! If you’re one of my Personal Makeup Super-course students, you already know that eye makeup technique doesn’t only vary widely, it can literally even change the appearance of your face. Here are the steps to adding a different twist to your smoky eye…

Once your face is totally made up (foundation, concealer, and powder), we’ll move on to eye makeup. For me, the easiest way to do a smoky eye is to follow these steps:

–  Use a black pencil that’s smooth and creamy. I like the one from MAC, because it’s very easy to blend.

–  Make a thick line at the upper and lower lash roots. (It doesn’t matter if it’s straight, because we’re going to blend this with a brush later on.)

–  Go back over the pencil to darken it and blend. The line doesn’t need to be too thick, especially on the lower lid.

–  Once you’ve blended, define the crease by blending in this area. It’s best if you blend just right in the crease, not too far above it, or you will make your eyes will look smaller.

–  Now apply a matte black shadow to the lid with a medium-sized brush to make the black even darker.

–  Once you’ve finished, apply an illuminating concealer just under the brow in place of shadow. ( Touche Éclat by YSL is perfect for this.) If you’ve smudged the undereye area, you can clean this area and then apply the concealer there too. Blend with a clean, thick brush. You’ll see how the area will be illuminated with a freshness that only a cream texture can provide.

–  Next, apply two coats of mascara.(My fav is Christian Dior’s Diorshow in blackest black)

–  Now it’s time to make up the inside rim of your eyes with the black pencil. Try to make up the inner rim of the upper lid as well. Yes, I know it’s hard… Another option is to line the lower part thoroughly and then bat your eyelashes so it rubs off on the upper lid.

–  I prefer to apply pencil after my mascara.

–  To finish up and add that unique touch like I did last Friday, use a medium brush to apply a bright-colored shadow over the black. I chose a navy blue from Bobbi Brown that gave me just a touch of color without changing the smoky effect. Apply the shadow right at the lash roots and lightly over the lid. You can use fuchsia, turquoise, or even gold or silver. You’ll see – it will transform your smoky eye in just a minute.

–  Since this eye makeup look is fairly eye-catching, apply only a matte bronzing powder to your cheeks to add a little contour without adding much color, and use a clear gloss on your lips.


 

When we have darker skin, not all makeup flatters us. We have to be careful not to overload our faces with makeup because that looks unnatural. We’ll show you the steps to follow to look radiant, and to make yourself up with one of the most fashionable techniques this season:

Foundation

–  Don’t overuse corrector and foundation. Remember that your kind of skin only needs foundation and corrector in certain areas.

–  If you use a tanning powder, blend it well and don’t overuse it or the result will look unnatural.

Smokey eyes step by step

Once you are totally made up, it’s time to make up the eyes. To do that you will need these products:

–  A medium or dark golden shadow

–  A cream pearly shadow (very light)

–  A black eye pencil

–  Black mascara

–  An eye shadow brush

Follow these steps:

1. Apply the golden shadow on the entire mobile eyelid just as you see in the drawing:

2. Increase the intensity of the color as much as you wish, applying the golden shadow on the mobile eyelid. It’s very important that you make up just up to the bone area and not beyond:

3. The next step is to make up the eye on the inside of the lids with a black pencil to give more intensity to the look.

4. Finally, apply the gold tone under the lower lid and blend. Then give a touch of color on the fixed eyelid with the pearly shadow.

Cheeks

–  Give a light touch of rose blush to your cheeks. When you have darker skin, it’s very flattering.

Lips

–  You can make up the lips in a gold tone to create harmony with the eyes, or if you prefer just use a transparent gloss.
