RAVE MAKEUP INSPIRATION

Raves are getting more and more popular and are the perfect time to go neon! You let go of inhibitions when you go underground, so why not do the same with your makeup? Typically, pastel pink shadow borders on sickly, but paired with a neon pink liner and anchored with a black wing and it’s not only wearable but quite pretty!! Here’s how:

TOOLS:

STEPS:

  1. Apply the pastel pink shadow all over the lid and crease with a shadow brush.
  2. Line the upper lid with the neon pink pencil and wing it out and up. Go a little thick with this one so there’s room for the black liner.
  3. Trace the lashline with the black liquid liner and wing it out and up, following the neon pink line.
  4. Finish with a couple coats of mascara.

Pair it with a fuchsia lip. And remember, this look is created specifically for raves and clubbing… not intended for every day!

All of our jawlines can benefit from a little highlighting and contouring. I used to just contour jawlines until I learned that adding a highlight just above it makes the illusion more effective. Here’s how:  (more…)

DO IT RIGHT! BLUSH EDITION

For years I’ve concentrated blush only on the cheeks. But as I’ve evolved and grown as a makeup artist, through studying my work on the red carpet, magazines and television appearances as well as working on every skin tone and face shape out there, I’ve learned that a real actual flush doesn’t just occur on the cheeks. And a lot of the time if we only blush the cheek, it can come across a little clown-y or stripe-y. So try this technique and create the illusion of a healthy glow as opposed to the “hey everyone, I’m wearing blush” look! Here’s how:  (more…)
