One of the best products I use in my makeup case and this product has a lot of versatility. That product is called. DenTek Easy Brush, this product was made for flossing but I use it for numerous tasks when doing makeup in the salon or for editorial work.
This product was made for flossing, but I use it for styling the eyebrows, applying mascara to the bottom lash’s and also the upper lash’s. It’s fine teeth can get into the small spaces of the eyes and applying mascara is ever so easy. I also like to use them to prime the lips to take off any chapped skin and to also moisturize the lips before applying lip stick.
Just apply a little Vaseline to your brush, and gently scrub the lips. I like to do this first before adding any makeup to the face. When I am ready I will gently use a wet wipe to clean the lips of any flaky skin. And then apply my lip stick!
Being a makeup and hairdresser, I like to always learn as much as I can in both crafts. I am now moving forward with the art of contouring in my face sculpting. And I have to tell you the new Palette I purchased from Sephora by Laura Mercier is just wonderful. The cream palette is more than enough for me too use for at least 6 months, and for the consumer it will probably last you for about 1-2 years. This product all comes in creams so don’t be heavy handed when using them. Once you see how the products expands you really don’t need a lot. There are a lot of different shades for shadow’s and highlights. The palette cost me $60.00 and I feel it is a lovely kit to start to use for learning and using on photo-shoots.
Contouring is a professional technique commonly used on editorial photo shoots as it works with lighting and shadows to recreate an illusion. Through her artisan lens and years of working as a professional makeup artist, Laura has carefully chosen these neutral shades in a darker range that help sculpt the face. The extraordinary cream formula is more blend-able than typical contouring powders, allowing for a natural, flawless, fool-proof application every time.
Always start with a clean palette, wash and tone and then moisturize where needed.
You get a HUGE amount of product. If you contour your face daily, this will probably last you over a year maybe two. This would be an amazing addition to a Mua kit, or someone who spends more time on their make up and uses it daily. I do highly recommend this palette for anyone that will use it daily, and for all Mua’s. It really is not for someone that wants a super fast routine and quick fast make up routine in the morning, or anyone trying to downsize the number of products they use. Now this is a cream so make sure you really look at the client’s facial condition, look out for large pores. And always make sure you lock in your work, I recommend the Makeup Forever Translucent Powder. Love it!
Apply the shadows and highlight were you want them.
