is always timelessly sophisticated and an effortless beauty, so it’s no
surprise that big cosmetics companies such as Bobbi Brown love working with
her. The actress has thus picked up some very useful and easy to try out makeup
tips that she believes just enhances what is there naturally without looking
over-done and caked on – just her beauty ethos. Here are her insider tips for
looking gorgeous and a few secrets for applying makeup too!
1. Makeup Should Enhance Natural Beauty
too much makeup looks bad and that products should simply enhance natural
beauty: "I want to feel comfortable and appropriate, but I agree with the
philosophy that makeup is really there to enhance beauty rather than to try to
change what you look like. And besides, I don't look good with too much makeup
2. Blush is Her Quick Fix
blush is a great quick fix product: "I didn’t realize that when you’re
tired, it’s all about blush—not necessarily concealer. You have to have color
on your cheeks to brighten your skin up—as women, we want to hurry up and
conceal the dark circles, but really you have to bring the pink out."
3. She Uses Gel Eyeliner for Precise
She loves how
defined gel eyeliner looks: "I like using eyeliner and mascara. I've
always been afraid of applying liquid eyeliner because my hand isn't that
steady, but Bobbi's new Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner is amazing because it is
a gel-pencil eyeliner, which makes it so easy to apply. Plus, the application
is so precise, I feel like a pro."
4. She Works With Her Own Colours
makeup to her own colours: "When it comes to make-up, I know what works
for me. I like to use a lot of browns or purples around my eyes and if I’m
doing my make-up myself I usually go for a smoky eye and a nude lip."
5. She Picks Up Makeup Artist Tricks
to remember makeup artist tricks the professionals use on her: "I try to
write down what makeup artists do on me. Like dabbing white shadow on the inner
corners of my eyes to brighten them--that's a good one."
