Just a Couple of Helpful Tips I've Learned Along the Way!

Hey girls! I want to share two makeup tips with you. The first one being from Bobbi Brown, world renowned makeup artist and Poppy King, The Lipstick Queen.

How to Apply Concealer Under the Eyes:

Take the concealer all the way up to the water line. Most of us stop somewhere underneath the bottom lashes because we don't want to poke ourselves in the eye or get any of the product in the eye. Take it all the way up and stop at the water line. You'll live. This simple trick will make you look much more awake and flawless. You can blend it with your fingers but I like to blend with the Sephora Pro-Platinum Airbrush Concealer brush, especially for this application tip. Doing this will conceal the redness or even puffyness we experience in the morning. A great concealer for doing this is the Hourglass Hidden Corrector. Since its in stick form, it is easy to just swipe and blend. And so what if you get product in your eye, the product is formulated to be safe for the eye area anyway. I know this doesn't mean directly IN the eye but after a bit of practice, you will have it down. So go ahead and try it and see what you think!

Red Lipstick Trick:

We all want to be bold and brave enough to wear red lipstick. I'm sure you've heard that if you are going to wear red (or dark) lipstick then its best to go minimal on the eye makeup. But what does this mean? Poppy King shared a great tip and I'm passing it along to you. Most of us apply our eye makeup well before we put on our lipstick, right? Well, when we do this we often get caught up in our eye makeup that by the time we put our red lipstick on, its all way too much when paired together. If you are going to wear red lipstick, put the lipstick on BEFORE you do your eye makeup. This will serve as a guideline for how much or how little you want to do with your eyes. Makes sense! Now, go be bold!
