Foundation 101

Foundation Tips and Tricks

Foundation should be used to enhance your skin, not cover it up. In fact, I don't like when people interchange the word "Foundation" with "Cover-Up." You shouldn't be "covering up" your beauty, but rather providing a flawless foundation for the rest of your application.

The right foundation should disappear when blended onto your skin. It is meant to even out our skin tones and to give the 
appearance of a flawless complexion. It should never look or feel like a mask. 

If your skin has a lot of oil, acne, scars or fine lines, you can apply a foundation primer first. It helps foundation glide on smoothly and keeps it from seeping into pores or wrinkles. It also helps foundation last longer as it gives it something to hold on to. I really like to use the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer on both myself, as well as my clients

What you use to apply your foundation will remain up to you. Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to tools, formulas, etc. Test some different options out and you will be able to choose one that works best for you. Below I have listed some tips that will help you when selecting the right shade, formula and tools.

Daytime Smokey Eyes...Super Easy!

Casey B >> 3/01/2014 >>
Hey Everyone! 

Today I have done a look that is so easy even the newest makeup addict can achieve it! All you need is:

  • Light Brown/Nude Eyeshadow (optional) 
  • Medium Brown Eyeshadow
  • Dark Brown or Black Eyeshadow
  • A light white frosty (or matte!) Eyeshadow
  • Black Eyeliner
  • Mascara 
This look is so easy because you are using shades that all blend well together to create a nice subtle wash of colour from lighter to dark. And because you are using medium and neutral browns, this look is so versatile! It can be worn to work, school, even a night out with your friends or on a date.
