Thee Statement Eyebrows!

Thee Statement Eyebrows!

The “statement” eyebrows have been in-style for quite some of 2011. As an aspiring MUA, I’ve created some do’s and don’ts about this trend!
Don’ts are interesting so I’ll touch base on those first.
1. Your eyebrows should not be the first distinct appearance when someone glances at you; your whole face should.
2. Stop drawing your brows into a rectangular box!
3. Your brows are not black; refrain from using a black pencil.
The Do’s!
1. Depending on your skin tone, your brows are naturally a shade lighter (Caucasians) or darker (African Americans) so typically find a brow pencil that matches.
2. Glide the pencil on your brow in soft strokes; this is just to fill where areas are pretty scarce.
3. Grab concealer and small concealer brush to trace the bottom and top of brows to clean “mistakes”.
4. BLEND, BLEND, BLEND!
Have fun with this trend but do not forget to look natural!

Don’t be a Ghost!

Don’t be a Ghost!

I know Halloween has passed, yet I’ve seen “ghosts” lately. To be more specific, I’ve created the term “ghosts” just for the ladies that apply foundation that does not, in any way shape or form, match their skin tone. It is usually lighter. Their skin appears (especially in pictures) a grayish tone and on their neck displays the true skin tone.
To prevent this unattractive scare, I have a few simple tips!
1. Go to an “over the counter” makeup store, like MAC. An MUA can help decide what your best color for foundation should be.
2. You have the foundation, now select a face primer; preferably with an SPF. It prevents oily skin and long lasting makeup wear.
3. Get a concealer that is 1 or 2 shades lighter. Concealer is used for spots and problem-sum areas.
Products are purchased now follow these steps!
1. Evenly distribute primer all over face (your face should be clean and moisturized when applied).
2. Use the concealer, not too much, dab your spots and baggy eyes then gently blend.
3. Get a foundation brush for dry foundation or stippler brush if you prefer liquid foundation.
4. Apply foundation evenly just enough to where you cannot see the concealer “dabs”.
5. THEN apply foundation past your face, down to your neck, and down to the collar bones. Prevents the “ghost” look.
Have fun with your makeup but do not be a ghost!
