We’ve already introduced “Pretty Striking” as one of our favorite looks for spring. It’s all about bright pink or orange lips, endless lashes and faintly flushed cheeks that all make a lasting impression. Get this look for yourself with our how-to video and a few Beauty Stylist tips from Cory Treadwell at our Downtown Seattle store.
Some helpful tips from Cory when customizing this look:
1. Clean and prep the skin.
2. Go backward with your makeup application, and start with the lips instead of ending with them. By applying a ‘striking lip’ first, you can then tailor the rest of your makeup accordingly. How many times have you completed all of your makeup and added a bold lip last, only to realize that your flirty, romantic look turned into a dark and smoldering circus? Bonus with this method: you get the maximum output with the least amount of products.
3. Do not forget about skincare. The better the canvas is prepped, the better the topcoat lasts and looks. Plus, the better your skin looks, the less makeup you actually need!
