While stars often dispense beauty advice, sometimes it’s the industry experts that have the best insider tips. Recently, celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh, who has worked with Kristen Stewart and Kristen Bell, shared her three best beauty tips with Glamour magazine.
If you want to make your lips look their fullest, use a cream illuminator, like Borghese Colore Luminoso Illuminating Wand. “Put it on the center of your lips, then apply gloss,” Quynh told the news source.
To help keep your cheeks’ flush last throughout the entire day, the makeup expert suggests applying a cream blush first, and then dusting a powder (in a matching color) on top. Many brands, such as Paula Dorf, Jane Iredale and being TRUE Cosmetics, make both cream and powder blushes, and selecting products from the same line may help you find shades that match.
Finally, ladies with dry lips may be able to remedy their chapped pouts as they sleep. “Apply tons of lip balm before bed. In the A.M., brush dead skin off with a toothbrush,” Quynh added. To further protect your lips, swipe on a coat of lip balm sporadically throughout the day as well.
