5-MINUTE SKIN PREP
BY PATI DUBROFF
Makeup should rarely be applied directly to skin.
Maximize its performance by layering products
over smooth and hydrated complexions.
STEP & REPEAT
FOUNDATION
BY JENN STREICHER
A primer is always first, followed by a blend of
varying foundation textures and concealer
for a finish that looks perfected,
yet completely real.
FLASH-PROOF
MATTIFIERS
By applying powder through the center of the face—
T-zone and sides of nose—
this technique will ensure a multi-dimensional,
glowy in-all-the-right-spots complexion.
AIR KISS
CHEEKS
The carefully contoured cheek
is a makeup necessity that
separates the newbies from
red carpet novices.
HIGHLIGHTS,
CAMERA, ACTION
BY JO STRETTELL
Consider the high points of the face—
cheekbones, brow bones, bridge of the nose—
and delicately sweep over an illuminator that will,
in return, deliver a "kick" to the complexion
INDUSTRY EYES
BY MELANIE INGLESSIS
Accentuate eyes with impactful, blendable colors
that define and emphasize.
RED CARPET
REDS
The unofficial color of awards season has proven
to be a forever classic and a regular participant
in iconic beauty moments. From matte finishes
to subtle stains that will outlast an evening of kisses,
here are the crimson hues necessary for the red carpet.
THE MANI-CAM
MANICURE
BY JENNA HIPP
A deep crimson and classic nude polish are red carpet never-fails,
provided the nails are prepared with care and attention.
In polite society, every photo-op is a chance to WIN ‘Best Picture’.
