Kid in a candy story time! And a dirty little beauty fake it secret… If you love makeup and how it can change your looks from glum to glam, you’re gonna like this one. Especially, some of the tricks of the beauty trade. First thing to consider is that all makeup is not created equal. There’s consumer cosmetics that many times have more advertising puff than powder puff. And then there’s the pro brands that must stand up to the close eye of a camera. Professional makeup usually has a bigger bang for the beauty buck and tends to go on more even and lighter to allow for retouching without buildup.
From selfies to big time, we all deserve to look at beautiful as possible.
The Make Up Show is a professional makeup artists’ trade show for all that’s beautiful in a cosmetic kit. I couldn’t resist to stop by (twice!) and report back on the beauty buzz.
So don’t you want to know what the pros use? Particularly, when it’s a little hush-hush, wink-wink old Hollywood beauty trick for looking substantially younger in a second? Wanna see? Take a look into Kevin Aucoin‘s last makeup kit, pictured above, for the elastic bands he used to pull off a quickie “neck lift” and “face lift.” Talk about smoke, mirrors, and a lot of tape. It was part of a gallery exhibition honoring the late great makeup artist whose legacy lives on in his eponymously named cosmetic brand.
