I have been getting a ton (and I mean a ton) of requests about how to find your face shape. And rightly so, because knowing your face shape can be extremely helpful when it comes to understanding where you need to place your blush, bronzer, highlighter, and contouring powder —or even in choosing a hairstyle.
When you know what is going to work for you, you inevitably will feel better about your makeup choices because whatever it is (highlighting, contouring) will be complimentary. But if you don't know what face shape you have how will you know what will work for you? You won't!
I get a lot of questions about makeup application (thank you everyone who's taken the time to tell me about your makeup struggles) and one thing that came up for several people was figuring out how to get foundation to look better.
If you've been following me for a while then you already know that I believe in teaching people "the rules" so that the door to endless possibilities is opened — because if you know how to play then you know how to win.
So I wanted to give you another ultimate guide but this time you're learning how to get the best-looking foundation.
I've broken this down into five different aspects that you need to pay attention to.
I'm personally obsessed with eyebrows. Once I discovered how our eyebrows can make us look younger, enhance our eyes, and even help balance facial features—I was hooked!
But we've seen eyebrows go through quite a few trends haven't we?
They've been super thin, then back to thick, tamed, untamed, high arch, no arch, bold, light, you name it. We've seen it all.
Since I already told you that I have an obsession with eyebrows (because they're kind of like a secret gem in my book), I decided it was time do to an in-depth guide to help you choose the best eyebrow shape for your lovely face.
I was recently at an appointment without any makeup, and the lady told me that I had really good skin. She said that she sees a lot of skin up close but that my skin was literally sparkling under her magnifying glass (haha ok I have to admit, when she said that I instantly had that scene from Twilight and the whole vampire sparkling skin thing pop into my head.)
Of course, everyone loves compliments but it really got me thinking. Why exactly is my skin so good?
It's no secret that I love to organize things. I'm the person who does that for fun. However, you don't need to be an organization-nut to reap the benefits of organization. A big benefit of having your makeup organized is that it'll help keep makeup from expiring because you'll actually be able to find and use your makeup products.
If you have EVERYTHING shoved into a box under your bathroom sink there’s a good chance you’ll forget about it. And before you know it, BAM! it’s overflowing with products you swear you’ve never seen. You may find yourself feeling stressed out about having to sift through all the stuff you have when you're getting ready in the morning. Or just bored with using the same stuff everyday even though you own makeup you’ve never tried or used.
