Common mistakes green make up Artist can make.
You have a nightmare, it is the morning of your big day and you have hired someone to make you look amazing Well, it’s now 4 p.m. and your foundation has all but melted away. Scream, The Alistbeauty professional make up artist team knows why it might have happened—and that your dream day should not turn out this way. Here are some foundation mistakes less knowledgeable artists might make.
#1 They have chosen the wrong formula
The only hard-and-fast rule when it comes to choosing foundation is to listen to your skin. If it’s oily, avoid labels that say “luminizing” and stick to products that are oil-free. If it’s dry, use a moisturizing formula. If minimal coverage is more your thing, look to make up with SPF. It evens out your skin tone with a sheer layer for a completely natural finish. Make sure you do a trial before the big day this will not only help you see the look you like but, how is lasts.
Alistbeauty Pore Perfecting Face Primer
Our primers protect and smooth skin, prepping complexion for flawless makeup application and extending wear.
Your makeup will never live up to its potential if you don’t start with a smooth, even surface. Here’s what to do: First, cleanse and exfoliate with a facial brush or a warm washcloth to remove dead skin. Next, apply a dime-sized dollop of hydrating moisturizer to your face, followed by a pinch of foundation primer (don’t forget to let it dry) and—voilà—you’re ready for makeup.
Hot Tip! Even if your skin is oily, don’t skip the moisturizer. Hydrated skin actually produces less sebum, which keeps your T-zone less shiny.
#3 Cheap tools that are not right for the job
When it comes down to it, the applicators are almost as critical as the foundation itself. Brushes provide greater coverage and buffing, while makeup sponges are perfect for a lightweight application or layering (think tinted moisturizer or a thin layer of liquid foundation). Part of the cost of a great make up service is having an artist with all the right tools. An artist should never doubt that quality tools are worth the investment or the artist is no real artist and not up to the task. After all, no one wants to be that girl who has a bristle stuck to her nose in public.
