Over the last (almost!) five years, I’ve shared every makeup tip, secret and trick that I know here with you over 500 (!!) makeup tutorials. But over the last few months, I’ve started doing this on my clients and wanted to share it now that I’ve tested it on most skin tones and textures. I learned it from one of my makeup icons and love how it really brings the products to life and sets the look at the same time. So I grabbed my girl Angelique Cabral from CBS’s Life In Pieces to show you how to work a hydrating spray into your beauty routine.

TOOLS:

TBDReadySetProSTEPS

STEPS:

  1. Apply foundation all over face and neck as you typically would.
  2. Holding the bottle 12 inches from your face (for photographic purposes, she had to hold it closer!) and imagine your face divided into four sections as you spritz each section.
  3. Wait for it to dry then powder face by stippling (pressing) the powder all over skin.
  4. Spritz again.
  5. Wait for it to dry then target powder your T-zone with an eyeshadow blending brush.
  6. Don’t forget the sides of the nose.
  7. Lightly contour just under the cheekbone, the hairline, the temples and the jawline.
  8. Apply blush to the top half of apples.
  9. Finish with a final spritz.

In case you were wondering, Angelique is wearing the gold shade from this palette.

We’re in the dead of winter and Summer feels like ages from now. But we don’t have to look like we’ve been living in a cave! Personally I prefer being pale and try to stay pale all year long. But every now and then I like to warm it up a little with a gorgeous bronze glow, and whenever I do, I never regret it! There’s just something beautiful and healthy-looking having a hint of color, especially in the winter months. And this method of mixing a luminizer with foundation, highlighting under the eyes then contouring with the bronzer and pairing it with a smoky taupe eye and a tulip pink lip is a fresh way to keep it from looking oompa loompa. Here’s how: (more…)

HOW TO HIGHLIGHT

We’ve done a couple tutorials on Contouring and Highlighting (revisit this one and this one) but today we’re focusing on an intense liquid highlight from HEAVEN! It reflects light in all the right places and really brings the skin to life. I’ve enlisted my colleague Sophia Flores again to model and break down exactly how she does it above (and why she does it before foundation instead of after!). To keep the focus on the highlighting technique and how to apply foundation with it, we purposefully didn’t do any makeup on her eyes, cheeks or lip. (more…)
