Ever wonder where beauty pageant girls learn their tricks?
Its all about the right products. Long-wearing everything and, of course, prepping the skin with primer for face and a separate primer for eyelids. A good makeup sealant can also be key for oily skins.
What’s your fave beauty tip?
Sara: Make sure you’ve got the right tools – good makeup brushes can take your look from pretty to beautiful.
Rebecca: Have a two-minute face. If you master a two-minute routine, then you can look polished even when you’re short on time. Conceal any darkness under your eyes, curl your lashes, swirl on some blush, gloss up your lips, and you’re done!
What’s one tip you’ve each picked up from the other?
I’ve learned from my mom to be meticulous. Once I’m done with a makeup application, I use a magnifying lens to check my work. That way, there are no surprises from an HD camera.
I’ve learned from my daughter to be open-minded to all sorts of looks and techniques. Sometimes a photo shoot demands a look that isn’t a personal favorite but, as professionals, we need to be able to create more than just our own visions.
For the holiday, what’s a great tip for sprucing up your look?
To achieve a dazzling makeover for evening, start with your usual polished look. Then add some drama to your lips or eyes. If you haven’t indulged in this season’s bold red lip yet, holiday parties are the perfect time to do so. If you’d rather keep the focus on your eyes, now is the time for eye jewelry. Dab some glitz and glitter around the lash line – top and bottom. Done!
