The 10 Commandments of Applying Makeup Like a Pro
Posted on 29 November 2016
Sweeping on mascara might seem intuitive, but there's actually a lash-maximizing technique that when employed correctly can take your eyes from whatever to woah. Ditto brow pencil and even lipstick. Here, Kimberly Soane, the director of artistry at Bobbi Brown, offers up 10 easy tips for every product in your kit.
When applying blush, smile, then dust the apples of your cheeks, then sweep pigment towards the tops of ears, then down toward the jawline.
Trace brow pencil or powder along the tops of brows for an instant facelift.
For even lipstick application, start at the cupid's bow and extend out to the corners of the mouth before blotting.
Instead of looking straight ahead at the mirror, get as close to it as possible, tilt your head up, and bring your chin toward the mirror. Look down as you apply, starting at the inner corner and working your way out.
Sweep the wand through the roots of your lashes and zigzag as you work your way up.
