Makeup Expert

The most natural and understated makeup look can be very enhancing to a woman’s beauty.

For women of all ages

BWB: What are some of the most important things you have learned from being in the beauty and makeup world thus far?

The first important thing I have learned is that you should bring out the eyes with the right details; they are the most important feature of the face. Although there are great makeup trends that require lots of makeup, like contouring and highlighting, less is more. The most natural and understated makeup look can be very enhancing to a woman’s beauty. Good communication prior to applying makeup application is also key to satisfying a client. Lastly, age-appropriate makeup is always essential.

BWB: Any tips for our readers that will be easy to implement in our everyday beauty routine?

Easy every day makeup tips (that only take 5-10 minutes) include filling in brows if necessary, applying an eye concealer all over and under the entire eye, a few coats of mascara, blush and a tinted lip color.

I recommend the Cure sheer cream by Natura Bisse. It has a creamy texture that melts into your skin. It gives skin a beautiful radiance and an even-toned look.

For women in their 20’s

BWB: Do you recommend any two-in-one acne treating beauty products that don’t dry up the skin?

A two in one acne product I prefer is Neutrogena oil-free acne correct and cover.

BWB: We’ve heard a lot of interest in beauty products that involve minimal effort but produce maximum results. Do you have any go-to products in mind?

For those interested in minimal effort beauty products, I recommend the Cure sheer cream by Natura Bisse. It has a creamy texture that melts into your skin. It gives skin a beautiful radiance and an even-toned look.

The key to beautiful eyes is opening up by lightly highlighting all over the eye, brushing darker color into the crease, then an even deeper color into the outer corner.

For women in their 40’s

BWB: What should women focus more on with 1st signs of aging? Any tips/products to smooth out wrinkles?

Women in their 40’s with 1st signs of aging should invest in facials and great skin care products. The beauty industry has so many options. Natura Bissé essential shock intense cream helps with firming the skin. Their eye cream is also great for hydration and firming the area.

BWB: Any tips for creating a beautiful eye makeup composition?

The key is to open them up by highlighting all over the eyes, brushing darker color into the crease, then an even deeper color into the outer corner. The liner should be very thin across the lash line. Color is vital to compliment eye color. Red undertones are great on green and blue eyes, while green and blue details enhance brown eyes.
