TOP Makeup Tips for Your FACE:

Blotting Papers:

"Starbucks napkins and disposable toilet-seat covers work just as well as blotting papers."

—Kerry Cole, style director of Becca Cosmetics


Light Dusting of Blush:

"My signature trick is, before completing my look, I always add a light dusting of blush to my crease and around my temples to pull everything together."

—Sasha Simler, trainer and makeup artist for Shu Uemura North America

Luminous Skin Effect:

"For a luminous skin effect, mix your foundation with a golden or a pearly white eyeshadow. It gives your complexion a radiance beyond compare."

—Nicolas Degennes, creative director of Givenchy beauty


Applying Little Corn Starch:

"If you're extremely oily and don't have face primer handy, just apply a little corn starch to your skin before your foundation."

—Niki Metz, director of artistry for Jouer


Applying Egg Whites:

"As a little girl, I would watch my mother apply egg whites to her face (especially around her eyes) about an hour or two before going out to a special event. She would take one egg, separate it, whisk it until it was frothy, and apply the egg white all over her face and leave it on for 20 minutes. After, she would wash it off with lukewarm water and immediately apply her makeup. The egg white tightens the skin and wrinkles to give you a temporary facelift."

—Niki Metz, director of artistry for Jouer
