Fresh Faces

Is beauty really in the eye of the beholder, or is it right at my fingertips if I only knew the correct way to apply? With a cabinet full of beauty “essentials” I’m determined to discover what exactly I am expected to do with the plethora of brushes, pencils, and powders.

Lancome has an educational area to help you learn which tools to use and how to apply. I like the look the backstage artist used for the 2007 Fashion Week, Proenza Schouler models. Light, modern and fresh. Click here to get the scoop.

I’m a bit challenged in the application area, so I prefer a video to show me exactly where, how far up the lid, and at which angle to hold the brush. Much easier were the days when a tiny little tear-drop shapped applicator would do. But the Lancome site is at least helpful and even contains a fun area to customize your own look based on your skin, hair and eye color. Day looks, night looks…many many looks.
