Where’s Elliott, and can I get some Reese’s Pieces??
Um…I only just realized it, but in that picture up there, don’t I look like I’m trying to phone home with my foundation brush?
E.T. phone home! E.T. phone home! 🙂
All part of the process of getting close to that fetching flawless foundation look I like so much.
Speaking of E.T., poor little guy couldn’t take advantage of one of my favorite foundation tips for even skin tone — running a foundation brush over my ears (because he didn’t have much in the ear department).
It can really help if, say, your ears are a little sunburned or tan, like if you’ve been wearing your hair up and exposing your ears. Dusting them with a small amount of foundation can even things out a little more (just remember to remove your makeup from your ears at the end of the day).
I also like to draw my foundation brush up into my hairline, really pressing to really get the product up in there, which I did yesterday with NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. That way, you don’t get that lighter/darker edge around your face that can make you look like you’re wearing a mask.
This trick and the ear one are good ones to have in your pocket, especially if you’re doing something where you might be in pics.
