Uzo from NARS: Holiday makeup help

Tis the season for tons of holiday parties. Uzo, the lead makeup stylist for NARS is here to give us fool proof tips to looking your best.

Skin gets chapped and dry during winter. Moisturizing and priming skin should always be the first step to get it smooth.

Get that glow without going on illuminizing overload. Putting a drop of illuminator into your foundation or applying illuminator under foundation will allow you to get the most natural finish while looking like you are lit from within.

Finish with the right power. After foundation finish with a loose powder – stay away from anything with sunscreen ingredients like titanium dioxide or zinc oxide when you are in front of a flash, as that could be the cause of accidental white patches on the skin.

Bronze the face to create dimension. You cannot achieve good makeup without good tools. Find a brush that can easily contour and creating strong, sculpted cheeks. Bronzer is a great way to create dimension in a photo when done correctly - placement of bronzer is everything 

Brows complete the look and frame the face. It is an essential step for photos that should not be forgotten. Use a brow gel to fill in and sculpt.

There will be a NARS event at Nordstrom at the Grove on Saturday, December 5th from 11am-6pm
