One of my favorite things to do is to pick a feature and compare the different ways that we can accentuate and define it. Today, let’s take the browbone; the area just underneath the brow. Daily, for the most part, I leave mine bare. Not because visually that’s my favorite look, but probably because these days I like to keep my morning routine fast and minimal. But if you watch me makeup my clients, I always either use a highlighter or a balm to add a little life to the area. It draws the attention to the brow, which has the important task of framing the eye. So let’s compare them and decide which one we like the best!

TOOLS:

HIGHLIGHTER STEPS:

  1. Trace a line directly underneath the brow, starting at the very beginning and ending at the end of the tail. You can make the area under the tail a little thicker if you wish.
  2. Smear the line back and forth with your finger until it’s blended but not too much that it’s gone!

BALM STEPS:

  1. Either swipe your finger against a lip balm in its pot or squeeze a pinhead-sized amount of face gloss onto your finger and swipe it against the back of your hand to thin it out a little.
  2. Gently smear it along the browbone directly underneath the brow, concentrating it under the brow tail.

    For those of you who like to know everything we use, this is the lid shadow in Grey Pearl and this is the crease shadow in Shimmer Copper, while this is the curling mascara used!

AU NATUREL

Au Naturel (video tutorial)

We affectionately call this look the No-Make-up Make-up, straight from the runways.  It’s also a great way to bring out your best features while looking like you’re naturally flawless.

•      Cover any redness, blemishes or dark circles with foundation or concealer.

•      Leave your brows bare.

•      Lightly coat your lashes with brown mascara.

•      Lightly swirl the apples of your cheeks with a light peach blush.

•      Finish with a sheer tinted lip balm.
