There are some key makeup products that every makeup artist will have in their armoury, but we mere mortals may not consider necessary. Tara O’Farrell, celebrity makeup artist, busts the myths for us and tells us why we should have some of these key essentials and why we shouldn’t fear using them…
- I have found over the years that a lot of women are afraid of blusher and avoid it completely when applying their makeup. A pop of colour on the cheek is so important for adding dimension to the face, without it everything can look a little bit flat. It is also so fresh and youthful so if you have been leaving it out of your make up routine, definitely reintroduce it, even a small amount makes all the difference.
- Brow products are definite make up kit must haves! There are so many options on the market from brow gels to brow pencils, but all will help to achieve a more defined brow. When I am in a hurry, I simply brush a tinted brow gel through my brows for an instant bit of definition.
- A nude eyeshadow palette is something that everyone should have in their makeup bag. A nice mix of warm brown tones is the best to go for as it is flattering on all eye shapes and skin tones. I also recommend a palette with a nice variety of matte shadows and shimmery eyeshadows to give you options for day and night time make up looks.
