Hi lovelies,

I have had the pleasure of working with some insanely talented makeup artist over the years and have picked up some of their beauty tricks that really make a huge difference.  After giving them a go you will be dying to get your selfie perfected!


I use to work on movie and tv sets a few years ago and learned the first rule of lighting and makeup there.  I would always show up with my makeup done and without fail I would be escorted to the makeup room to add LOTS MORE!  When you are gettting your picture taken with a high quality lense and professional lighting, your makeup will almost dissapear.

Have you noticed that when you take pictures you could swear you put more makeup on.  Well thats because all those lights reflect off your skin can wipe out the details on your face.

1.  So my first trick is to add more makeup than you would on a regular day.  Define your eyes with liner, and add just a bit more blush to give your face some color!

My absolute favorite blush for photos is Nars Orgasm (hint of glow in this one),
or Mac Warm Soul (great for mature skin).  And the best eyepencil!




2.  Use a primer!  I didnt think this mattered, but it makes all the difference in your makeup.  I PROMISE you will see a difference!  I put this on and let it sit for few minutes, then do my makeup as usual.  By the end of a long day, all my makeup is still right where I put it!  

Here are my three favorites




3.  And last but not least, conceal and set these three areas;  under eyes, in between eyes, and top lip!  Then set it with a lightweight powder!

I love these two concealers, Nars Radient Creamy Concealer (can be a little drying) 
and Tarte Concealer (great for dryer skin types).  And my go to setting powder by Laura Mercier.





I hope these ideas help you with your beauty routine and let me know if you would like to see a makeup tutorial on how I use these tips! Have a fabulous weekend!
