8 Quick Makeup Steps

30 Jan

I recently attended an event at Saks Fifth Avenue hosted by Trish McEvoy makeup artists. The title was “Makeup of a Confident Woman.” Makeup artist Nick Capezza chose someone from the audience to participate. (Her name was Carla!)

Here’s a photo of Carla (above). It literally took him less than 10 minutes to apply this effortless, natural look. Of course, there are 8 easy steps — 5 steps for skincare, 8 steps for makeup application. Hmm. I guess that adds up to 13. But, 8 steps are makeup!

Nick has outlined them below. Of course, all the products are by Trish. But, of course, you can go to your makeup bag or bags and use what you have.

The power of skincare steps:
1)cleanse: am and pm with Cleansing Water or Gentle Cleansing Wash
2)exfoliate: Beta Hydroxy Daily Exfoliator Pads, or the Correct and Brighten Professional Strength  Multi-Acid Weekly Peel
3)treat: Beauty Booster Face and Beauty Booster Eye Serums
4)protect: Beauty Booster Cream SPF 30
5)correct: Beauty Booster Advanced Retinol Eye Cream, and (pm)Even Skin Vitamin C Cream

 

The 8 step makeup lesson:
1)Brighten the eyelid: using Trish’s Eye Base Essential
2)Define the lash line: using Trish’s Intense Gel Eyeliner,  using the tight-line technique and apply your eyeshadows
3)Enhance your lashes: with Trish’s Tubular High Volume, or Lash Curling Mascaras
4)Brighten Under Your Eyes: with Trish’s Triangle of Light Technique using Instant Eye Lift.
5)Even the skin: Use your favorite Trish foundation and concealer to perfect and even the skin with your favorite foundation brush. Set with translucent set powder.
6)Face Color: apply Bronzer, Highlight and Blush. Blend with a whisper of translucent set powder.
7)Enhance Your Brow: define your brow with Trish’s brow enhancers.
8)Enhance your lips: Apply Flawless Lip Primer and press into the lip line. Follow with  your lip liner, color and gloss.

 

Some extra makeup tips:
With the eye liner, taper and blender like windshield wiper
The fan brush works wonders for blending.
Eyebrow maintenance is a must.

 

Are we ready to look beautiful?
