As a makeup artist, whenever I work with a new client, I usually start off by asking them, “What is your favorite feature about your face?” Sadly, most women don’t immediately answer my question, and would rather go into telling me what they DON’T like about their face. I again, reiterate, PICK a POSITIVE feature, there has to be something you are proud of – your poreless skin, big eyes, sharp cheekbones, nice lips, long lashes, something you love about your face. It’s okay to admit, “Hey, I’ve got something good here!” I almost feel like I’m playing therapist sometimes! I want women to feel strong and proud of what they’ve been born with and work with it!
I ask this question, because it helps me to play up that feature on their face that they love and then ultimately I play down the areas they don’t love. Makeup is all an optical illusion and game of distraction!
So my question this week is What is your favorite facial feature? And what makeup products are key in playing up that feature?
My pick would have to be my skin. I love to play up the fact I’ve been blessed with a fairly even skin tone and hardly ever break out. So my equation for making it look even better is:
primer + foundation + concealer + illuminating powder + blush.
I always say, if you can perfect the skin then everything else can fall into place.
