Get ready for your close-up with this flawless look
Looking flawless on camera involves a few extra steps that vary from your everyday routine. Follow these simple tricks to get ready for your close-up.
After thoroughly washing your face, apply a primer like Magic Perfecting Base to help smooth and perfect skin. Primers can be worn alone or under any foundation.
Meet Your Match
Create a flawless canvas with True Match™ Super Blendable Makeup that precisely matches your skin’s tone and texture. Touch up imperfections and dark circles with a dab of concealer that’s 2-3 shades lighter than your skin. Finish off with a light translucent powder only on the areas that tend to get shiny, such as the T-zone. Apply everywhere if you have oily skin.
Camera flash can wash out even the most defined bone structure. Contour with a smudgeable cream bronzer just under the cheekbones, and for a natural looking flush, dust True Match™ Super-Blendable Blush on the apples of the cheeks. Highlighter is a great way to reflect light from the areas of the face you want to draw attention to, like directly above the cheekbones and the inner corners of the eyes. Try our Magic Lumi Highlighter for a touch of luminosity.
When it’s time to face the lens, you’ll want your eyes to pop. Lining the upper lid will make eyes appear larger and the lash line thicker. Use a smooth-gliding formula like Extra Intense™ Liquid Pencil Eye Liner to define the entire upper lash line. Blend with the smudger to create a slightly smoky effect, and go over the line with an angle brush and shadow for serious staying power.
Bat a Lash
Lengthy, defined fringe starts with primer and a lash comb. Curl lashes and apply one coat of mascara. For an extra boost of curl, heat up your eyelash curler with a blow dryer for a few seconds, check the temperature with your fingers, and then lightly clamp your lashes for a heat-encouraged lift. Sweep on multiple coats of black Voluminous® Million Lashes Mascara in a zigzag motion to ensure you’ve covered every angle.
Give Some Lip
Pull the whole look together with a standout pout. Bold pinks and reds pair perfectly with a neutral eye, and Infallible® Never Fail Le Gloss in a neutral shade is great with a heavy shadowed look. Lining and filling in the lips with a liner that’s close to your natural shade will create a suitable surface for lasting color.
