Ask Eric? Eye On Beauty Tips!

First determine your skin's undertone, this will work in your favor. But how exactly do you find your skin's undertone? It's as easy as looking at the underside of your wrist in natural sunlight. If your veins appear bright blue, you have a cool undertone and pinks or berry colored lipsticks will work best. If veins appear green, you’re warm-toned. Salmons, peaches and corals should be your go-to. Eye color and Hair color can really help determine which lipstick shades will pop against your complexion. Tip: enhance green and hazel eyes with cherry-red lips. Blue eyes work best with coral hues. Brown-eyes go with pink hues. Rosy tones often balance the brown color and give a more sophisticated  look.
-Dab a luminous primer along your orbital bone.This will give the concealer something to adhere to.

-Create a “V shape”: yellow-tone concealer on cheekbones and a peachy one below each eye. Blend well.

-If you want a brighter look; cover lower lash line (including inner rim) with white gel liner (or pencil), then blend with a brush.

-Apply mascara through upper and lower lashes.

How Do I Waterproof My Foundation:
Waterproof makeup is great for those times when you need your makeup to hold up. Whether it's due to excessive heat or humidity, swimming or even attending a function where you know you will be shedding tears, it is important that your makeup is not running down your face.

A makeup finishing spray may be the solution you have been looking for when it comes to making your foundation makeup waterproof or water resistant. A finishing spray is used after you apply your makeup. They lock in moisture and keep your makeup looking fresh and like you just applied it. Finishing spray or sealants can make your makeup last all day long and be resistant to smudges. Now, who wouldn't want that.

How to Select Your Makeup Foundation

The first step in selecting foundation is profiling your skin type. Do you know if your skin is oily, dry, normal, combination, or sensitive?

Both your skin type and the look you'd like to achieve help you determine the best level of coverage. More brands are introducing highly-pigmented options, which allow you to get a flawless finish with a lightweight formula.

How do I use BB cream?

BB TIP 1: BB any way you want. Use it as a primer. Use it for light coverage. Use it however you see fit
BB TIP 2: Don’t use too much! Just a pea size will do. (Hint: if you need more coverage, see tip #3. No need for lots of layers.
BB TIP 3: Looks great alone for quick, camera-ready skin. Or pair BB with your favorite foundation for more coverage. We adore it with Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder
BB TIP 4: Have dry skin? Still moisturize first. Have oily/combination skin? BB is all you’ll need
BB TIP 5: Regular use will improve your skin! BB is loaded with anti-aging peptides for a decrease in fine lines over time, plus it guards against harmful rays with SPF 35.

Add Highlight Dab luminizer on the center of the eyelid. The light contrasts with the darkness of the lashes, making
eyes pop.
 To add definition with mascara. Upturned lashes let in more light, thus brightening the eye area. Curl lashes and add definition by wiggling the mascara wand right at the root of the lashes. Always target your concealer. There are a couple spots you should dab for an instantly brighter look. Apply concealer on the vein just above the inner corner of your eyes, and right below the brow bone for a lifting effect.

Plump and smooth fine lines and crow’s feet with a trusty eye cream. Look for a formula that combats puffiness, discoloration and lines long-term, but adds an instant pick-me-up with a light-reflecting ingredient, like pulverized mica.

Always apply sunscreen around your eyes. When your skin is protected, it doesn’t need to work overtime (aka fend off UVA and UVB rays) and can focus on important things, like repairing wrinkles from the inside out.

To make the whites of your eyes look brighter, use a light pencil under under the eyes

Separate clumpy eye lashes with a lash comb available at beauty supply stores

Always wipe wands off before using to avoid clumping

When applying mascara to bottom lashes, hold a tissue under the lash so that mascara doesn't end up on the skin.
