The pared-down look is over. Time to get out from behind those masks and invest in ourselves. If you look good, you feel good. Confidence is a gorgeous color on everyone.   

To get the scoop on the latest skincare and makeup trends, I held a Beauty Bash to which I invited good friends and New York City makeup artist Brett Loding from Nordstrom. The Balm, which was founded by a former local resident, provided us with amazing eyeshadow palettes, whimsically called “The Balm and the Beautiful”.  

We all came away glowing after Brett’s presentation on skincare and makeup. 

Here is a curated list of some of the best products and favorite model makeup tips to bring your best summer look forward.

Makeup Tips from Models 

• Anything you use on your eyes can be used on your lips, i.e. eye balm can be a primer for your lips.  

• A cream blush can double as an alternative lip option.  

• Bronzers can double as eyeshadows and cut crease-eye look.  

• Use a translucent powder before bronzer and blush for better absorption.  

• Apply eyeliner after mascara to amp up the look. (Hides application mistakes too.)  

• “Triangle of Light” technique: Apply eye lift product down the side of nose, up the cheekbone, and then fill in triangle by using your ring finger to pat (don’t rub) into the skin. 

• Invest in a good magnifying mirror, such as Simplehuman (J. Lo is a fan).  

• Use a spoon, rather than an eyelash curler for great curled lashes.
