Fashion Week is always full of fresh trends and I tend to overdose on style, but this year I am learning a thing or two! Here are some fast fixes for your typical beauty blunders…
Slumping Ponytail – This is an easy fix that will make you smack your head think DUH! Just tilt your head back as you create the pony. It will ensure the hair at the nape of your neck is pulled into a tighter hold.
Unnatural Lip Lines – To make bold lips look a little more natural, blend the outline of your lips with a brush stroking inward.
Streaky Polish – The culprit is usually thick coats and impatience. The thinner you can apply coats, the better. Deborah Lippmann preaches her mantra of thinner applications and waiting two minutes in between layers. “Apply thinner coats. If you start putting too much on the first round it will never dry, it will streak forever.”
Blush and Lips Off the Mark – To ensure your lip and blush colors coordinate, use a lip crayon as your blush. It will give it a dewy finish. Rub the crayon on your hand then apply it with your fingertips to tone the pigmentation down.
Obvious Pinning – Sometimes we use a plethora of pins to secure do’s, but on the runway and under the sun those pins can reflect those bright lights. Sand away the shine of the pins with an emery board for a matte effect.
