There’s a Product for That

I’ve always loved the iPhone commercials with the phrase, “there’s an app for that.”  As an avid apple and iPhone user, it is nice to know that there is “an app for just about anything.” I have found that the same is true with makeup.  Whatever your needs are, there is a product for that!  With that in mind, I thought I would share some of my favorites from my experience working backstage at fashion week, glamming celebrities for the red carpet, and more recently working as an affordable makeup artist in Arizona.

Below are some basic beauty needs with products to remedy them.  Let me know if you have questions about how to use them or where you can find them.

Dark Circles
Benefit Erase Paste 
YSL Touche Eclat

I recommend applying a small amount of benefit’s erase paste with a brush.  Less is more with this product.  The peachy tone will correct the blueness under the eyes.  Then, apply the touch√© √©clat on top to brighten.  If YSL is too pricey, look for an alternative concealer that illuminates.  Both products are needed to fully correct the dark area and bring life to the under eyes.

Small Eyes
Stila Eyeshadow in Kitten

Apply this shadow from the lash line to the brow bone.  It contains three different shades of pearl that reflect light and make your eyes look bigger.  If you want, you can wet your brush and paint another coat on the ball of your eyes. This technique is a great way to visually enhance the eye shape and enlarge the eyes.

Lipstick That Bleeds
Anastasia Wax Lip Pencil

Use this pencil as a reverse lip liner.  Apply it around the outside of your lips.  The wax settles into the creases of your lips and prevents lipstick from spreading.

Aging Body
Makeup Forever Face and Body Makeup
Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer

I am not the biggest fan of most body makeups because they are too thick.  However, I love to mix these two products to transform the entire body for the red carpet or special events.  I have a client who loves the concoction so much she applies it to her hands.  It looks very natural.  It is also effective at smoothing at the skin and minimizing discoloration.
Short Lashes
L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes
Too Faced Lash Injection

Tubing mascaras are great because they create an actual tube around each lash.  This allows the formula to extend the length of the lash beyond its actual length.  Even better, tubing mascaras stay on extremely long!  I think they are better than waterproof formulas.
These are just a few example of some of the remedies to your beauty needs.  Remember, if you have a problem, there’s a product for that!  Even better, I can help you with your makeup shopping in Arizona.  I now offer personal shopping.  Contact me today for more information at paintingyoupretty@gmail.com.
