Color correction under or around the eye area can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be if you know which shades work best for your complexion. Fair skin tones can use a light peach corrector. Medium skin tones can opt for a true salmon shade, and deeper skin tones should try using orange red corrector.

When it comes to camouflaging the look of tired eyes, less is more. Packing on concealer will only make the appearance more pronounced, especially if you are using a concealer that’s too light for your skin tone. People commonly make the mistake of applying concealer that’s too light, thinking it will lift tired-looking eyes. Instead, it looks startling and gives an almost vampire-like look where you end up looking sick.

If you have been rubbing products on your eye area, you are applying the product the incorrect way. I was taught that you should use a soft tapping motion, as rubbing will only aggravate the skin around eyes. The patting motion will keep the concealer in place to deliver maximum coverage. Tapping the product into the eye area really marries the product to the skin naturally because the skin has oils in it, which break down the product much better.

Stay clear of eye-shadows that are too dark (blues, blacks, deep grays, etc.) if you are having any issues around the eye area, ie dark circles and spots. Go for a brighter neutral shade to help perk up the look of your lids. Definitely stay away from anything with pink or blue undertones. Go for warmer tans, browns, and golds.

FULL EXPOSURE PALETTE By Smashbox Is a wonderful product to work with and it is true to tone for all of your eye shadow colors.  I used this palette on Jamilla for her first photo-shoot and I was very surprised. The product holds.  I did not need a primer for the extra hold on the eye lids. And blending was effortless. This palette is a real deal also for the consumer priced at $50.00 dollars you cant go wrong. I was roaming around Ulta for some lip liners and low and behold there it was in front of me.  There was no flacking of the shadows, hardly any clean up at all.  I did not even need to punch up the makeup at all except to add a few new colors to her photo-shoot . Normally I rely on MAC for all of my photo-shoots I am hired for.  The use of eyeshades worked well on this model.  This was Jamilla’s first photo-shoot!

But next time I will use this palette again. The palette also came with a mascara which worked well also. I try not to use one product line for my cosmetics I use in the salon.  I prefer to use what works for me, which is normally different brands.. The same also for when I am dressing the hair. Look around if you are a Make-up Artist there are a lot of good products in a lot of different cosmetic company’s to play with.

PHOTO FINISH FOUNDATION PRIMER is another product I often use from SMASHBOX wonderful collections of products for the face. Create a perfect canvas for foundation application with this silky, lightweight blend of vitamins A & E, grape seed extract and green tea. Worn alone or under foundation, our best-selling, oil-free primer helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for flawless skin with a velvety-smooth finish. This I say is a must for good makeup applications and for editorial or film work. Apply a dime-size amount of PHOTO FINISH FOUNDATION PRIMER to clean or moisturized skin, using fingertips, for complexion perfection. Follow with your favorite foundation. And guess what I also used it on the hair to keep the fly-away hairs from peeking up there ugly heads. So if you like to tame frizzes’, try smoothing primer through wet or dry hair. And then blow dry the hair, or use it on the dry before curling. It’s amazing!
