Use Natural Colors
Many celebrity makeup artists have shared tips on bronzer and blush, and really sticking with colors that are more natural for you.  Surprised?  With blush, for example, do we really want RED cheeks?  Not likely, so instead of letting a blush color overwhelm you let it bring out your natural features and just add some subtle color.  That seems to be a common theme among celebrity makeup artists, while they do add quite a bit more makeup to celebs than most of us typically wear, their goal seems to be to generally create a more natural/beautiful look rather than something that’s overpowering and not so natural looking.

What you may not realize is many celebrities have their makeup applied in a way that deflects light in certain areas, primarily under the eyes (hello dark circles).  Using concealer and other highlighting products strategically are ways to deflect like and draw attention away from particular areas you don’t want to enhance.  Some makeup artists suggest applying concealer on the top of the cheekbone instead of right under the eye to help with this.

Use the Right Tools
Celebrities makeup artists all over are quoted talking about using particular brushes for application.  Many at-home makeup ladies are using things like their fingers to apply makeup but it’s really all about the brushes.  And if you’ve seen any YouTube tutorials of celebrity makeup artists doing a makeup application, you’ll notice they have a TON of brushes with them and that they use to create these flawless looks.  That’s because using the right brush for application is a huge part of achieving a makeup look that looks flawless.  It’s really like anything else in life, if you don’t have the proper tools it’s difficult to achieve the desired outcome.  That means even using a brush to get your lip products on flawlessly – most of us just use the wands in the lip gloss but using the lip brushes to apply will aid in a more streamlined look.

Like many things in life, it’s all about using the right tools, techniques and products to help you achieve a flawless look.  It also doesn’t hurt to have the help of a trained professional.
