I’m ready for my close-up! 5 things we learned from a celebrity make-up event that will change your life


Picture the scene – four incredible make-up artists get up on the stage, show you LOADS of unique ways to apply make-up, what to use, and how to create the weirdest, most wonderful make-up looks we’ve ever seen.

That’s right, legends of make-up Lan Nguyen-Grealis, Phyllis Cohen, Daniel Sandler & Ruby Hammer all hopped up to tell the world how to create various fantabulous looks – and we’re gonna tell you five of their top tips which could change everything.

Mouths will drop, ‘WOWS’ will appear, and it will probz change the world. (We took it too far)

1 – Eyeshadow to WOWSHADOW

Daniel Sandler gave us tip number one. If you want to create heavier impact with your eyeshadow – in particular glittery ones – then wet your eyeshadow brush before you apply it in downward strokes. It’ll make it last longer, look stronger and deliver a mad shine every time you blink.

Now THAT’S a tip.

2. Don’t always focus on trendz man

As Ruby Hammer said; whether it’s strobing, contouring, or the latest trend – it ain’t ALWAYS gonna work for you. Take the lady above for example – clearly spots are her thang.

Basically, there’s always gonna be a new make-up craze round the corner, so don’t go with a strong contour if you don’t need it – a simpz bit of blush is always good, YA HEAR?

3. Take the time to do the primeLauraMercierPrimerRadiance

Priming is like. HELLA IMPORTANT YO’. The Laura Mercier Radiance Primer is apparently a God send, mixed with an Aveda exfoliant beforehand to make sure your skin is silky soft. JUST PRIME MAN. DON’T FORGET TO PRIME.

4. Da mascara trick

mmjjj

We never know how to apply mascara – one lash at a time, whack it on willy nilly, or just wing it? (har har)

Well, to hear it from a legend of make-up, the best way is actually to put on the mascara reversed (with a closed eye), brush downwards in the centre, and THEN wing. I know right.

5. Weird is always wonderful

If this session taught us anything, it’s that ANYTHING is possible with make-up. You can use gem stones, glitter glue, pigments… you can walk round looking like a disco ball basically. AND WE LOVE IT.

LOOK AT THIS.

It’s fair to say, all four are absolute legends in their own right. The resounding message seemed to be that make-up is fun, creative and NEVER boring – so go WILD AND ENJOY!
