I always carry with me a simple terry towel from Ikea - square, with a hard nap. I urinate it with boiling water, squeeze it out and thoroughly go all over the face. The heat softens the surface and the dead skin cells can be easily removed with a towel without injuring the skin. Reception saves from flaking and flakes - this is especially important on the set. Photographers love working with me, because the skin in the frame practically does not need to be processed.
A pencil instead of a sculptor
If you can't find the right sculptor (everyone looks too red or red), Double Wear Eyeliner, Estée Lauder in Coffee (02) will save you. Fill in the desired area and carefully blend the lines - you get a natural shadow in a natural shade.
Fluffy Lipstick Brush
I apply lipstick with a barrel brush, which is usually used for shading eyeshadow. This gives me a light, natural outline. Clean your favorite smoky eyes brush with some Pure Color Love, Estée Lauder (match your mood) and work all over your lips.
Lipstick under the shadow
Lipstick Pure Color Envy, Estée Lauder (shade 130) I use as a "base" under the shadow. Firstly, it contains caring components that will take care of the delicate skin of the eyelids. Secondly, the shadows fall on its surface evenly and are perfectly shaded. Thirdly, it is very persistent, the pigment really lasts all day. Do not be intimidated by the burgundy brown shade - the finish is fantastic.
I use oil for a trendy "wet" finish. This technique is suitable not only for filming, but also for daily makeup. I recommend Resilience Lift Extreme, Estée Lauder. Warm up a couple of drops of oil on your hand, saturate both palms with it and with light "applying" movements, go over the entire face. This will further moisten the surface. The highlighter works well with the texture of the oil - together they give the effect of sleek, healthy skin.
