Highlighter, contour and blush are my favourite ways to sculpt the face and since I’m addicted to all these products I’ve managed to build up a few favourites over the years…
Makeup Forever Flash Color Case (Shade 023 Brown)
If you’ve watched my contouring video you’ll know I’m a huge fan of this creamy formula; it blends beautifully into the skin and looks natural.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
This is an amazing matte bronzer that blends beautifully, it is hard to stuff up your contouring with this product. (A good budget friendly option which is in my opinion almost identical to this product is the Essence Sun Club Matte Bronzing Powder)
A lot of people question the Make Up For Ever 12 color flash. Some people feel its too advanced for them, while others are just intrigued by the color. There are many things you can to with the flash color case…creams are great bases, pressed for time? Use the flash color as eyeshadow base. Reason: using powder shadows will only slow you down. We all know, powder is like concrete. Once on, its on! You can also use the flash color to create blushes & lipsticks. The coral, pink, red & white are amazing colors to do this with. Think of it like this: you got a client, perhaps a bride..she wants a color no one else will have. You, the artist can now customize a lipstick for her & even name it. The flash color is also great to color correct & create foundations. Now, I know that sounds a bit out of this world but its true. I know artists who have left their kits or they got stolen, had a gig & needed something..whelp, Flash Color to the rescue.
I created my foundation my own foundation using the flash color case. Its so fun to mix & formulate colors. I challenge myself daily by picking a random color & mixing the flash colors to match it. Its a great exercise to keep you on your color toes!
Look at the undertone: warm? cool? yellow? pink? olive?
Start with your primary colors. I’m more yellow, so I used a little bit more yellow than the others. Now its important to remember two things: blue & red are strong, so a little goes a long way. And colors could be both warm & cool, so look at that color wheel!
Mix the primary colors together.
After mixing the colors, I lightened it with a touch of white.
To add some depth & warm it a bit, a little bit of red. Then mix!
Its a match…whohoooo!!
Now, you have to remember if you were creating your foundation on a piece of white paper, it will be a bit harder to match.
