When applying makeup as a glasses-wearer, you'll want to invest in a good magnifying mirror.
Remember that different makeup rules apply for nearsighted and farsighted glasses.
To prevent foundation and concealer from sticking to your frames, be strategic about application and be sure to use setting spray to keep the makeup in place.
Opt for a lengthening mascara rather than false eyelashes.
Balance the look with a bold lip.
In recent years, eyeglasses have really come into their own as a chic...
When you wear glasses, there are different techniques to use for eye makeup application. Margina Dennis, the NYC-makeup artist, states, "If you're wearing glasses that make your eyes appear smaller, I like to use eyeshadows with a sheen. A satin or shimmer finish will help draw attentions to the eyes." Anyone who wear glasses that make their eyes bigger should use matte eyeshadows, because it's better to downplay the eyes.

The holidays are fast approaching, meaning that parties, family gatherings and group outings are also around the corner. But what’s worse than not having anything to wear for these occasions? Having makeup that doesn’t suit your face. While makeup doesn’t need to be the end-all, be-all, it’s a staple part of the holiday season, and a fun opportunity to get fancier than your everyday routine.

Whether you subscribe to the "new year, new you" notion or are just curious to know more about the makeup trends you'll be seeing in 2019, you've come to the right place.

It can be worn on a full face of makeup or alone with nothing else on the face. As a makeup artist, I cannot tell you how many times clients have told me that they love the look of red lips, but they cannot, for one reason or another, pull it off. Whether it be the application, the maintenance or simply finding the right color or formula, it seems a daunting ...

It's said that the eyes are the window to the soul. If you are a good observer you can easily guess a person's emotional state by looking at their eyes. That's why people pay a particular attention to the eyes. From ancient times, women used to contour their eyebrows to make their eyes seem brighter and more attractive. When it comes to makeup, any woman wants to have sexy lips and alluring eyes.
Still, for many women, it's quite a challenge to makeup their eyes. You have to use proper produc...
A growing number of my clients lately have been asking my advice on microblading eyebrows, a semi-permanent solution to barely-there brows that don’t have to be drawn on daily.
Now that thick brows are back in fashion, it makes sense that many women are considering the newest cosmetic procedure made famous by social media’s love for bold brows with dramatic before and afters photos of microblading eyebrows.
Since my perspective is limited to my experience as a professional makeup artist, I so...
