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.
