‘Tis the season to be merry and bright! Indie Beauty Market has what you need to put the party glow on and make your skin feel great. Not sure how to apply them in the best way possible? No worries, we got you covered! Follow these simple tips and tricks from expert makeup artists that we picked just for you. Rock in style with these tips below.
It all Starts with a Great Canvas
Making your skin a smooth canvas is a big influencer in bringing out the glow from your makeup application. O’o Hawaii Soar is a moisturizer + finishing balm that does a great job at helping you glow right through your foundation. Mike Kristi’s C Radiance and sunscreens like Cyberderm and Skinbuzz are also good choices for that pre-makeup finish.
When you’re ready for foundation, you want it to blend into your skin rather than sit on top of it like a mask. The minerals in Ellis Faas’ Skin Veil Foundation diffuse light across your skin with safe ingredients.
Apply Blush Next
After you apply the foundation...go for the blush! Smile in the mirror to see the “apples” of your cheeks. That’s your target! Apply the blush over these areas with light blending to achieve a natural glow. This simple trick will put all of your clown-cheek fears to rest.
Focus on One Dramatic Feature
Lip shimmer, eyelashes, sparkle eyeshadow, face glitter...let’s admit it, we want to try them all on! But when we do, we run the risk of looking more like an actor in costume than the belle of the ball. Why? Experts say that each of these makeup elements already provide powerful visuals. So when they’re combined together, it’s a little too much.
Instead, stick with highlighting just one feature - lips or eyes. These bold colors by Ellis Faas and Social Paint are great for the lips. They’re made with ingredients you can feel good about.
That’s all there is to it! You’ve got what it takes to put on the party glow and show everyone who you are, the natural way. Now get out there and strut your stuff. Show the world what your true beauty looks like!
