TOP Makeup Tips for Your FACE:
Extra Virgin Olive Oil:
"Here's one for the winter: Take an egg yolk and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, and whip together. Slather all over your face and leave on for 20 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water. This treatment is the most hydrating thing you can do for your skin, and it'll leave your face with the most beautiful glow you have ever seen!"
—Niki Metz, director of artistry for Jouer
"My mom, the cofounder of Benefit Cosmetics, used to tell [my sister] and me 'there are no rules when it comes to beauty.' She always took her favorite lipstick shade at the time and used it all over to create an entire makeup look. I remember growing up watching her put a swipe on both her cheeks, both eyelids, her lips, and blending it in, and it instantly looked like she got a makeover."
—Annie Ford Danielson, Benefit global beauty authority
"Your complexion products (foundation, concealer, etc.) should match the inside of your arm, not the back of your hand."
—Maggie Ford Danielson, Benefit global beauty authority
Mixing Foundation with Moisturizer:
"Mixing foundation with moisturizer is an easy way to lighten your coverage options if you already have a fuller coverage foundation."
—Caitlin Wooters, makeup artist
Mixing Touch of Loose Powder:
"To make foundation thicker, mix in a touch of loose powder. (Be careful not to add too much or it will cake.)"
—Cecilia Muench, creative director of Inglot
