Nic shows you how to create a soft eye and pretty lip in her tutorial to help you look fresh and beautiful (in photos and face-to-face) for your prom or formal.
Moisturise skin and apply foundation with a damp miracle complexion sponge(adding water will help blend and reduce the amount of product absorbed by the sponge). Smooth over the skin with the flat edge or use a dabbing motion for areas that need full coverage. Wearing your hair up? Sweep foundation over your ears.
Choose a foundation that photographs well. Avoid foundations with SPF (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide) as they may cause flash-back.
Flip the miracle complexion sponge and use the tipto push concealer in, around the nostrils, under eyes or any areas that need extra coverage.
Take a warm brown cream shadowover your lid with a shading brushfor a long lasting look.
Apply a soft light shimmer in the inner corner of the eye with the same shading brush.
Run a brown pencil over the the lash line with a slight lift in the outer corner (don’t worry about it being perfect!). Soften the line with your shading brushand run pencil along the top water line.
Brush up lashes with a volumizing mascara. OPTIONAL: Apply to bottom lashes too.
Brush brows up with your lash-brow groomer then run a brow powder thru hairs with your brow brush. Set and define hairs with a brow gel.
“Brows frame the face, but we don’t want it to look like you borrowed someone else’s for the night!” -Nic
Grab your miracle complexion spongeand press a setting powder over the skin to set makeup and eliminate shine. DON’T powder over dry skin.
Take a blush brush and sweep a warm bronzer over the high points of your face for a fresh, healthy glow. Note: Bronzer is warmer than a flat contour shade.
Apply a highlighter on the top of cheekbones, brow bone and cupids bow with your setting brush.
Frame lips with a lip pencil that’s lighter than your lipstick to avoid altering the hue.
Apply an eye catching lipstick and buff out the edge with your accent brush. Finish with one last pop of lipstick over the center of lips.
