Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a professional makeup artist come to your house and give you a private makeup lesson and share her beauty secrets? I thought so too, which is why I jumped at the idea to have a local makeup artist, Amanda, give me a lesson and makeover.
In my never-ending quest to buy makeup and be able to use it, having Amanda come over and show me a few more looks plus share her favorite products seemed like a very good investment.
Are you curious to find out what she recommended? Great because I am excited to share these beauty secrets because “wow” are they good ones!
The Water Cream is the perfect cure for dry winter skin. Amanda used the Pearl Tinted Eye Treatment on the top of my cheekbones under the foundation to help brighten and create definition.
I am a little embarrassed to share I never got on the Beauty Blender bandwagon. It is one of those things that I am now like, what didn’t anyone tell me I HAD to get a Beauty Blender. Well, if you only buy one thing from this list, this is my #1 recommendation. It will totally change the way your foundation looks on your skin. Your skin will look dewy and polished.
The Tarte Shape Tape brightened up my entire face. I didn’t realize my summer concealer was a bit dark for my winter skin tone.
If you are like me, you probably have a good bronzer, so no need to necessarily buy a new one, but if you are in the market, this has a subtle warm undertone. Amanda brushed a little over my eyelids to soften the look and bring everything together. An excellent easy tip to create that polished look.
In addition to helping your eye shadow last, here is another quick and easy trick to brighten your eyes.
So, if you are in the DC metro area and are interested in connecting with Amanda, let me know, and I can make an introduction. Here’s how it works.
Amanda schedules an initial appointment with you for about 1.5 hours. She comes to your house, reviews your makeup collection, and gives you a makeover plus lesson with your makeup. Amanda will then offer some ideas of products to complement your existing investment. If you want some or any of the products, Amanda will go and buy them for you, makeup plus brushes.
Amanda will then come back for a follow-up appointment about an hour to review the techniques and ensure you feel comfortable with applying the makeup yourself and drop off your products.
P.S. Is there anything more irritating than dry winter lips? No! Here is one last beauty secret, Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask.
