Kims wedding makeupShe looked like a beautiful Angel at the altar

Giving Princess Kimmy some finishing touches 馃檪

Skin

To prep Kims skin, I used The Moisturizing Lotion by La Mer all over the face and neck.

I applied Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup by Dior to even out the skin tone.
To cover and highlight under the eyes, I used By Terry’s Touche Veloutee concealer.

I set her makeup using Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder.

Eyes –


I brushed Kim’s brows then filled them in using L’Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Custom Brow Shaping Pencil in Light Brown.

To define and play up Kim’e eyes, I used Lanc么me 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Golden Frenzy. 聽I swept the light golden shade all over the lids and 聽I applied the darker shade along her crease with a small liner brush. 聽I used 聽the lightest shadow on the brow bone to highlight.

Along the lower lash line, 聽I swept a touch of the golden/bronze shades, focusing more towards the outer corners.

I lined her eyes (top lid only) using Cover Girl Line Exact Liquid Liner in Very Black. 聽Start out with a thin line at the inner corner and gradually thicken the line as you go towards the outer corners. 聽Wing the liner up and out.

To give her lashes (both top and bottom) 聽more length and volume, I applied two coats of Lanc么me Hypn么se Doll Lashes mascara in So Black!

Cheeks

On the apples of cheeks, I applied Lanc么me Blush Subtil in Rose Romantique. (A sheer peachy tone) 聽Smile and sweep right on the apple blending out and up.

To warm up Kims skin and contour her cheeks, I used Guerlain Teracotta bronzing powder. I brushed a bit all along the hairline and 聽jawline. 聽I 聽also applied some along the hollows of her cheeks to contour.

I gave Kim radiant, glowing skin with Giella’s Eye M Glam highlighter. 聽I applied some along her cheek bones to give a dewey effect, on the bridge of her nose, cupids bow (right above the center of upper lip) and 聽I also swept it along her decolletage, shoulders and arms. Lastly, 聽I applied it to the inner corners of her eyes using a small liner brush to brighten and open the eyes.

Lips

I defined her lips using YSL Dessin Des Levres lipliner in Nude Beige followed by Lanc么me’s L’Absolu Nu lipstick in Coral Sand. (A sheer peachy lipstick.)

I finished off her lips by adding a touch of shine with Lanc么me La Laque Fever lipgloss in Ravishing Coral. (Very pretty color for any skin tone)

To keep Kim looking fresh from the day and into the evening, I used TATCHA Aburatorigami Japanese Blotting Papers. 聽(They’re all natural and powder free.)

Hope you all like it! 聽Give it a try and if you do, please send me the pics 馃槈 聽 Xo Mario

MDOKMagKhloeKardashOct09cropped

On Khloe’s skin – To prep skin, I used Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation Primer by Givenchy.聽 I wanted her overall skin to be more matte, even though I was going for the “glowy Khloe.”聽 Most of the time, I will later add the glow to the areas I want.聽 For foundation, I used the new Sheer Matte Foundation by NARS all over skin.聽 For undereyes, I used a bit of Lift Concealer by Make Up For Ever.聽 I set everything with a touch of聽 Translucent Loose Powder by Shiseido.

Khloe’s Brows are filled in with Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil.聽 It comes in a universal shade.聽 To darken the brow, just apply more.

Cheeks – To bronze and warm up Khloe’s skin, I used Dior Bronze Matte Sunshine in Amber Matte. On the hollows of the cheeks, I applied Suntan Matte Bronzelights by Smashbox.聽 For blush, I brushed Orgasm by NARS on the apples of her cheeks.聽 To add glow to the cheekbones and bridge of nose, use Albatross blush, also by NARS.

Wedding makeup tips and tricks…

Tis the season to get married! 聽I figured I should do a wedding makeup聽post since so many people are getting married in the summer and fall.聽 I think makeup is really important for a bride on her wedding day.聽 It’s photographed by a professional and you will see the images forever.聽 If there’s any day in your life that you want to look you’re very best and most beautiful, it’s your wedding day.聽

I get emails everyday from brides-to-be from all over (some as聽far as聽Moracco!)聽asking me to do their weddings.聽 I feel terrible because unfortunitely my schedule now doesn’t really allow me to book weddings anymore, but I have done many many weddings in the past and I always loved making a woman feel beautiful on her special day.聽 Below are some products and tricks to help you out.聽

The pics here are of my beautiful聽sister Vicky.聽 She got married last summer and of course I did her makeup, lol.聽 I love you Vicky 馃槈聽聽Vicky聽usually does her makeup pretty natural so we kept with that theme of warm, natural and nude colors.聽聽Theres also a couple of pics of Dara Godfrey, wife of the amazing designer Jay Godfrey, on their wedding day.聽 I flew out to Miami for their wedding.. it was really beautiful and so was she!聽 The last pic is a bridal cover I did a while back, “For The Bride” magazine.

Tips and tricks –

Photo Finish Foundation Primer by Smashbox.聽 This is a really good primer to use all over before you apply your foundation.聽 It helps keep the makeup last longer and keeps it smooth.

Secret Camouflage by Laura Mercier.聽 This concealer had 2 shades that u can mix to get the perfect match for your skin.聽 Go alittle lighter under the eye and for blemishes, match the exact skin color.

Loose Setting Powder by Laura Mercier.聽 This is good to set your foundation and concealer.聽 It’s very silky and sheer and has a bit of light reflecting which helps to smooth fine lines and imperfections.聽 Try putting a bit of it on a velour puff and applying it that way.聽 Great to touch up with also through out the day and night.

Oragasm Blush聽by NARS.聽 It’s a peachy pink with shimmer and just looks beautiful and so many skin tones.聽 Brush it on the apples of your cheeks (try not to go too low on the cheek with it).

Dior Bronze – Amber Tan by Dior.聽 A matte golden bronze shade of bronzer.聽 Brush it all around the frame of the face to warm your skin up.聽 Dont forget to apply some to the neck too!

High Beam by Benefit.聽 This is a聽 luminescent complexion enhancer.聽 Apply it on your cheek bones for a dewy glow.聽 I like to use it on the center of the lip too for a hightlight and on the bridge of the nose.

Silk Eye Shadow Wash by Stila.聽 It’s a water-based liquid-to-powder eyesshadow in a shade called kitten (pinkish gold tone)聽 It looks great on alot of skin colors.聽 Use it on your eyelid or to highlight.

Powerpoint Eyepencil by MAC.聽 This pencil is great for a wedding because its waterproof but you can still blend it nicely for a smokey eye.聽 Also great for the inner rim of the eye.聽 After applying on top lids, brush alittle translucent powder over it and apply again.聽 This will give the line alot of pigment and really pop.

B-Dazzle by GIELLA.聽 The perfect shade eye shadow for the inner corner of the eyes.聽 Makes you look more awake and gives that “angelic” look.聽 GIELLA can also custom blend it into a pencil.聽 www.Giella.com

All products except for the MAC and GIELLA can be found at www.Sephora.com聽.聽 Remember to keep your makeup classic looking on your wedding and don’t overdo it!聽 Xo

Answers to your questions, LAST PART ;)

聽聽 Thank you all so much for your patience with this.聽 I聽聽聽 hope that my answers helped.聽 馃槈

1.聽聽聽 Hi Mario
Loving all the looks you create with your magic..and thank you sooooo much for this amazing blog where people like us (who have no clue about looking as hot as celebrities) can learn SO much from experts like you..you have a BIG HEART!! thank you for sharing your tips and tricks and giving the exact placement techniques鈥ou are a gem!

now to my question鈥 actually have REEEALLY dark under-eye circles..i am presently using bobbi brown corrector & a mac concealer鈥 just thought i should take your expert opinion on this..which concealer would you recommend for HORRIBLY dark under-eye circles and which won鈥檛 crease alot鈥?

If the corrector and concealer are not working for you, you may want to try using 2 concealers.Go with a cream concealer first, like the Laura Mercier secret camoflauge followed by a liquid conceiler.The Make Up For Ever lift conceiler is really good and doesn鈥檛 crease a lot.

and oh one more thing..i read your blog post about weddings..and the makeup you did for your sister鈥檚 wedding was AMAAAZING!! OUT OF THIS WORLD i tell ya!! she looks like an ANGEL!!! i know i might be asking too much..but is it possible you could do a close 鈥淕ET THE LOOK鈥 for your sister鈥檚 wedding makeup? i don鈥檛 even know if you still remember it..but i would REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY appreciate it if you could or atleast just a break-down of how to achieve a similar look for the EYES

Yes, I may do a GET THE FACE for my sisters wedding makeup.

i hope you take my questions into consideration as well..thanks in advance!

2.聽聽聽 In January of 2010 I am moving to LA to go to Cinema Makeup School. I currently live in New York, do you think it鈥檚 wise for me to move to LA for makeup or would it be best to find a school in NY? I want to know where I have a better chance of succeeding and would love to hear your thoughts about it!

It鈥檚 hard for me to say where you would have a better chance in succeeding.LA is great if you want to get into celebrity makeup and film, etc.NYC is also great for celebrity work as well as fashion work.A lot of makeup artist eventually become bi-costal like myself.

3.聽聽聽 Love your work!! I went through all the comments to make sure this wasn鈥檛 asked already! I wanted to know about eyebrows. How to shade them in, what brow pencils to choose, etc. Thanks!!!

When doing brows, I like to concentrate more on filling in the outer corners.I fill in the inner corners as well but slightly.Keep it soft and natural as to not overpower your face.I love the MAC brow pencils.There is a color called lingering which is my favorite and usually works well with most blonds and brunettes.You can also use any powder eye shadow for a softer effect.

4.聽聽聽 Hi Mario! I absolutely LOVE how you do makeup! My problem is that I have skin slightly on the fair side.

I just recently switched from Bare Minerals (I found it did not cover my acne scars or roseca) and switched to Duo Mat Forever Makeup Powder Foundation. I just got a foundation brush from Sephora called 鈥榓irbrush #55

I was wondering what you think the best blendable brush/concealer to cover my face problems would be, and how I should use it. Esp under eye circles and acne scars.

I really appreciate reading your posts, I am so thankful someone with your skill is helping us out!!

I think that brush is great.In areas where you need more coverage, try using a sponge and then buff the face with the powder all over for an even coverage.I don鈥檛 recommend using just a pressed powder under the eyes.Try a concealer under your eyes instead.

5.聽聽聽 Hi Mario! I hope everything is going well for you. I have oily skin and wanted to know what face lotion do you recommend? I鈥檝e tried products from Target to expensive La Mer and La Prairie and also I was wondering what is a good face wash to use to remove make up and without make up. I am currently using Shu but for some reason I don鈥檛 feel like it works to well.

I also love Kimmie鈥檚 make up. I was wondering when are you going to post more GET THE LOOK. I love the make up you did for kim when she attended the fashion show in NYC. Can you share with me and everyone.

Thanks.

For oily skin, definitely use an oil free moisturizer.There are so many out there and I鈥檓 hesitant to recommend one to you.I love DDF and Peter Thomas Roth moisturizers.You should try cleaning your face first with a makeup remover wipe then wash with a cleanser.Being that you have oily skin, you should exfoliate a couple of times a week too.There is a line out called June Jacobs that I really love.Give it a try.

6.聽聽聽 For the get the look you did on Adrienne Bailon what color Foundation did you use? what kind and color did you use for loose powder and Concealer?
Your the best love ur blog so much its my Fav!

I really can鈥檛 remember what exact shades I used.I mix colors a lot and it would be overwhelming for me to remember the exact shade of every product I鈥檝e used in the past.You should find a shade to match your skin perfectly.

7.聽聽聽 Mario-You are a genius! I want to go into make-up and it helps to hear your story. My question is how to accentuate small eyes? In photos my eyes always look small and squinty. I don鈥檛 want to look over done but I am sick of looking like I am blinded by the sun in my photos, haha. Please help.

Small eyes are pretty too ;).To make small eyes appear more open or bigger, try using a beige/vanilla or white pencil on the inner rim of your eyes.MAC makes a great white pencil and Three Custom Color Specialists make great Vanilla colored pencils.They鈥檙e called Light Clarifier pencils.Also, use a shimmer shadow or pencil on your tear ducts to open and separate the eyes.My favorite is b-dazzle by GIELLA custom blend cosmetics.

8.聽聽聽 Hey Mario, what foundation/skin products and lashes did you use on Kim K. in your first post? I鈥檝e been dieing to know for ages! Looks gorgeous.
Thanks
Elena.

On skin- Diorskin nude foundation, Laura Mercier loose powder.For the lashes, I cut up different pairs of lashes and kind of made my own so would be hard to replicate that.

9.聽聽聽 hey mario, how can i get fuller lips?

Pencil in your lips with a natural shade and go slightly above the lip line.Also, use a light color on the center of your lip.

10.聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 MARIO omg honestly you are the best of the best darlin i saw u at kim鈥檚 dvd launch and i was honored! ive been dying to know the eyeshadows you had on kim that day for her dvd launch what was it? and what lipstick did she have on? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know鈥hanks xoxox

I used neutral, shimmery colors on her eyes that day.LORAC baked eye shadow trio in Superstar.MAC lipstick in Myth and Victoria鈥檚 Secret Gloss in Pink Guava.

1.聽聽聽 Hello Mario. I am a big fan of your work and was hoping if you could give me some tips on the ever so famous yet tricky smokey eye look. My skin complexsion would be similar to Oprah Winfrey to give you an idea, ha. I want to achieve the PIERCING smokey eye you give Kim K. Also how can I achieve this look without having it smudged underneath the eye. I know you have so many questions to answer. Thank you for your time.

Stephanie

Go with a very pigmented black pencil like Smolder by MAC. Line the top and bottom of your eyes and the inner rims.Apply dark shadow all over eyelid up to the crease and blend.Smoke the same dark shadow on the lower line.To prevent from smudging, be sure to use powder under the eye and over the concealer.

2.聽聽聽 Hi Mario 鈥..pls pls help me with this, i bought gorgio armani silk luminous foundation 6.5 as evry makeup artist told me this was my perefect shade and I also thought it was but then in my photos I look orange. .is this oxidation issue. I have combination skin. I apply primer, foundation then set with powder.what am I doing wrong. out of all the foundations i鈥檝e tried from different companies this is the one I like most- in terms of look it gives but problem with color of it. Please tell me what shades you mix for Kim as my skin color is similar to her鈥檚 and I鈥檓 planning to mix my own colors. How to I pick which colors to mix. Also please give advice on what makeup to use to look good in photos. Thank you. Thanks for all your hard working in creating videos, blog all, your advice and tips

Maybe the powder or bronzer that you鈥檙e using is changing the color of the base. This happens a lot.First try to apply just the foundation and take a picture of it to see if it still looks orange.If not, you鈥檙e good.Use a translucent powder to prevent that from happening.If you鈥檙e still orange, then it鈥檚 the wrong shade for you.Again, it鈥檚 very hard for me to remember what exact shades and numbers I mix.Hope you understand.

3.聽聽聽 Hi Mario,

I rarely wear makeup, but I would like to begin to. In the morning I usually don鈥檛 have much time to play with hair and makeup, if any – maybe 5 min. tops. What are the makeup essentials for a simple, quick, and easy look?

For that amount of time, I would say to use a tinted moisturizer all over your skin to even you out.Apply with your fingers.Try the Laura Mercier or shop around to find what you like best.Mascara, a little blush and/or bronzer and a gloss or lipstick on the lips.

4.聽聽聽 Hi Mario,
I live in Ghana and the weather is usually very hot all year. pls what kinds and brands of makeup can last all day here? i am african and am 20yrs but i have these big permanent bags under my eyes. how do i hide them with makeup so i don鈥檛 look so tired all the time. thanks.

Try using a primer before you put on your makeup.Try the photo finish primer by Smashbox.I think that application is more important than the actual brands of makeup.Use a primer first, then a foundation and finish with a loose powder.Use the loose powder with a powder puff.I like the powder puff鈥檚 by MAC.Press it into the skin and the makeup will last longer.Same with under eye concealer.Set it with a lighter loose powder.

5.聽聽聽 Hi Mario,
Let me just start by saying your work is brilliant and inspirational. The fact that you can take the time to answer questions says a lot about you, so I would like to thank you in advance. I currently use MAC prep & prime, Mac studio fix fluid, and fix powder. However I notice that my skin always looks very shinny when I take pictures, so today I purchased the Make up Forever HD liquid and the HD micro finish loose powder. Do you think this was a right move and is it okay to incorporate the MAC pressed powder or will that take away from the HD look? kinda kicking myself for not consulting you first鈥ol..

I think it鈥檚 totally ok to change up and use different brands together and you should.Try one powder with the other foundation and vice versa.It could look great.Use the MAC pressed powder lightly with a brush and you should be fine.It鈥檚 really more about preference.The HD powder is a lot less coverage and a different look.Play around with everything and you will discover and learn a lot.

6.聽聽聽 Mario! =)
You鈥檙e truly amazing! I sincerely hope you can answer my questions.

1. I have oily & acne prone skin, which I am treating with proactive skin care. I was wondering what foundation would be the best option for oily skinned people like myself? I know there are yellow based and pink based foundations – My skin is light (not pale though) with pink undertones – What foundation what you recommend that would give full and flawless coverage?

Thank you so much! I hope you help me!

Ella xox

Definitely use a matte foundation.Try the Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet foundation.It gives great coverage and looks smooth.Follow with a loose powder so it doesn鈥檛 start looking too thick.

7.聽聽聽 Hi =)
I have acne pron skin, currently I am using Glo Minerals and I think it is causing me to break out. I am taking prescription medication from the doctor and it seems to be working except for the makeup. What kind of makeup should I be using on my skin? I have tried so many things, I am just tiered of having acne. Please help.

Melissa

This is a hard one for me to answer as I don鈥檛 specialize in skincare.The best you can do is consult with your dermatologist and see what he/she has to say.There are a few skin care lines out there that make foundations for sensitive and acne prone skin 鈥 I would recommend you to do some research on that.

Answers to your questions ;) Part 2

1.聽聽聽聽 Hello Mario,

I think the work you do is very beautiful especially on Kim kardashian and the recent wedding post was great. I love the bronzed look and i use bronzer from Smashbox Suntan Matte and i was wondering if the product from model co BRONZE Airbrush Face would work better?

I鈥檓 not sure if it would work better on your face or not.It鈥檚 a totally different kind of bronzer so it would give you a different look.I do love model co products.I use their body bronzer sometimes.

2.聽聽聽聽 HI MARIO!! PLEASE HELP鈥︹.

WHAT IS THE BEST BRUSH FOR APPLYING FOUNDATION? I USE BRUSH 188 BY MAC. IT HAS A WHITE TIP, BUT COVERAGE IS OK. ALSO WHAT DO YOU RECCOMEND FOR AGING PREVENTION?? I鈥橫 27 AND FREAKED OUT ABOUT WRINKLES鈥.LOL I JUST STARTED USING SHISEIDO. I REALLY HOPE U HAVE TIME TO ANSWER.

I LOVE UR WORK!

I use a few different foundation brushes.If you want one that gives you more coverage, try the Giorgio Armani foundation brush..It鈥檚 shorter and the bristles are very full.

3.聽聽聽聽 Hi Mario!

I was wondering what color eye shadows you recommend for blue eyes. I have more of a gray/blue eye color.

Thank you!!

I love that eye color!I don鈥檛 use grey shadows that much but with your eye color, they do look great.Try grey鈥檚, black鈥檚 if you鈥檙e doing a stronger eye, bronze shades would look good too, purples, etc.

4.聽聽聽聽 Mario,

I can honestly say that you are one of my favourite makeup artists right now. I love your modern, fresh take on makeup and how well your vision for the person鈥檚 face translates and brings out their absolute beauty.
I guess I really don鈥檛 have a question, but i just love seeing your work and reading about what products you love for what and what works best for you, and seeing videos of you doing makeup because i really learn a lot and i love recreating your looks, so keep em comin! Oh I thought of something鈥.as a makeup artist, I find that I still haven鈥檛 settled on one particular brand of foundation鈥o you recommend any brand in particular? like MUFE, Graftobian, Kryolan鈥.Nars鈥tc?

Thanks a lot!

I think as a makeup artist, you should have different brands of foundation for different jobs, looks, people, etc.Right now im using NARS, MUFU, Dior, Armani, etc.

5.聽聽聽聽 Hey mario! You are very talented!
I was wondering what you do in the summertime to keep makeup looking fresh and lasting all day?

What are some good everyday foundations?

With girls who wear makeup everyday, what do you suggest doing to stay away from breakouts?

To keep your makeup looking fresh and have it last all day in the summer heat, use a primer first and a loose powder to set the foundation.If you have oily skin, use a oil-free moisturizer and foundation.Lorac makes a great everyday oil free makeup.If you have dry skin, try the Armani makeup or a tinted moisturizer.Laura Mercier makes a great one.To prevent breakouts, go with a oil free makeup.

6.聽聽聽聽 Greeting Mario,
Repetative question, but your fans are all dying to know how you pull of your concealer look for your clients. Specifically Kim K鈥檚. What brand of concealer do you use and what brand of powder are you using under her eyes. What is your technique? I can鈥檛 wait to see the video you and Kim are coming out with. I鈥檓 such a fan of your work. Thank you, 916 Baby Girl

To see my technique and products I use, please watch our makeup video on youtube.I love the Make Up For Ever lift concealer and the Laura Mercier translucent powder.

7.聽聽聽聽 Like many fans of your work on here, I love blush and brozners. The problem I have have is choosing the right colors for my complexion and apply blush correctly. I am a woman of color and finding products can be difficult at times. If possible, can you do a video tutorial for applying blushes and bronzers?

You are by far the most talented make up artist I have seen. Keep up the good work and thanks for creating a blog to share your tricks and tips with us!

Refer above for blush techniques.For darker skin tones, use blushes that are not too light or that have white in them, for example a light pink would not work.Try reds, bricks, or pigmented peaches.

8.聽聽聽聽 Hi Mario!

First I have to tell you that you are the best! I love all the looks that you do and I think it鈥檚 amazing that you have a blog! Here are my questions:

1)聽聽聽 I know that in the wedding post you suggested the laura mercier loose setting powder. For everyday would you suggest that one too? And if yes do you suggest the traslucent or the beige one?

Yes, you can use that for every day.If you鈥檙e not pale, use the beige one.

2)聽聽聽 Ok may be this is going to sound like a funny question but do you know the product lashes to die for night time eyelash conditioning treatment by peterthomasroth? If you know it what do you think about it. It鈥檚 $125.00 at sephora and I really don鈥檛 want a buy it if it doesn鈥檛 work. Lol

No, sorry I don鈥檛 know about it.

3)聽聽聽 Which anti aging cream do you recommend?

Soooo many that are good.I like the Olay regenerist line.

9.聽聽聽聽 Hey Mario

– First of all i think you are g.r.e.a.t . I learned sooo much from just watching your video鈥檚 !! i looove you!

– I have this question i asked so many 鈥渂eauty-specialists鈥 here in Germany but i never never got a satisfying answer and thats why I always bought the wrong ( but very expensive ) make up. I have some small scars on my cheeks (left from acne,little bit depressed)..when i dont wear foundation they are hardly visible but when i want to go out or when i have a date i want to put on foundation etc鈥ut make up always makes it look even worse because of the shadows that are created on my cheeks..in some lights it looks really bad i hate it so much that i became obsessed with trying out different foundation but nothing seems to help..or am I doing something wrong?..i use matte bronzers(MAC) and matte foundations (MAC) and a anti-oily-skin creme to prevent 鈥渟hining鈥 鈥ut its still not how i want it to look :(..i mean i know foundation cant make them dissapear, but Mario do you know something that would help,something to put under the foundation or a technique that would make them less visible? I know you are working all the time with people with 鈥減erfect鈥 skin..but I thought I鈥檒l ask it anyway =) i hoooope to hear something from you!! Thanks in advance! Have a nice weekend!

There are a lot of creams out now that can help to reduce the appearance of scaring.First off, you should begin using those.The trick would be to not use heavy makeup.Try using the Laura Mercier oil free tinted moisturizer then apply a loose powder with a velour powder puff.MAC has a great, soft puff.

10.聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 for under eyes that somewhat sink in, what is your advice to make it look smoother and more flat under the eye?Use a lighter concealer to help bring out the 鈥渟unken in鈥 look.


if you have acne scarring, what should i do to conceal that鈥pply concealer before or after foundation? After

is there a way to use the beauty blender without it soaking up the product?Wet the beauty blender, squeeze it out so that it鈥檚 damp and apply the makeup to the skin first, then blend with the sponge.

Choose a matte bronzer that isn鈥檛 too dark.Frame your face with it.If you check out my makeup videos on you tube, you can see how I like to do it.

I use different products to highlight that area.Candlelight by Kevyn Aucoin is one of my favorites.Apply right on the cheekbones with a smaller brush.
