For those that are new to makeup or want to learn. Here is a tip that I just shared today on my page. Not only are brows important but the foundation is extremely important. If your foundation ain't on point I would suggest you to go no further. Normally what I like to do I like to mimic the highlights. midtones, and shadows of the face. Nobody's skin is ONE color. So to use one foundation is unnatural and makes the model look flat. So I grab a shade that 2-3 shades lighter than the skin to represent the highlight. But also you have to be aware of what Cool and Warm is. There are cool highlights and warm highlights. Your job is to determine rather your model has cool or warm undertones. Me I have a mixture of both red and yellow undertones but I'm more in the warm family with the reds. But one thing you must know is NO One is straight warm. It would be unnatural not to add some yellow undertones. So because I'm more warm. I would add a warm yellow tone as my highlight. If it's cool it will come off being ashy. Next is midtone. Midtone is your overall skin tone. You want to make sure you don't leave that out because thats going to be your transition from the highlight to the contour which is the shadow. So contour. Anybody that knows me knows I love to contour. You should find a shade thats 2-3 shades darker than your skintone. Sometimes I use eyeshadow to contour, bronzer with no shimmers to contour, or for a more natural contour I use liquid. And the key to getting a flawless transition is this:

This is the BeautyBlender I recently did a shoot and had the opportunity to use this product. Now I have tried dupes of these and none have compared to this beauty blender. BeautyBlender is the first ergonomically designed non-disposable sponge applicator that allows you to flawlessly apply your makeup. It gives a flawless airbrush finish and it's quick and easy compared to a brush. What I do I soak it in water, squeeze out the access water and the fat surface I I take and either stipple or sometimes I like to roll & dab. The tip I use around the areas thats hard to get to. Like the crevices of the nose and the eye area
