Makeup tips and tricks

Makeup tips and tricks

Our makeup artists at Glamour Hair Boutique know all the tips and tricks when it comes to makeup and its application. Here are a few tips we’d love to share with you.


Matching Foundation

The trick to finding the correct foundation shade is to match your skin tone correctly. And to do this you need to figure out the undertones of your skin. The trick to do this is to look at the veins on your wrist, if they appear more blue than your skin is cool toned and if they appear more green your skin is warn toned.

Brush Selection

Brush selection is another trick to creating great makeup and there is a makeup brush for every technique but minimum. You need a large brush for powder, a smaller fluffy brush for blush, bronzer, or highlighter, an eye-shadow brush- the size of a fingertip, and lastly, a smaller shadow brush for smudging and blending.

Brush bristles made of real hair deposit well but don’t have the blending ability, but artificial bristles soak up the product and blend really well.


Contouring for your Face and Eye Shape

Contouring means to create shadows and this is what professional makeup artists are really good at. You can learn how to do this if you know about what contouring and highlighting suits your face and eye shape, best. Book for a makeup class with one of our professional makeup artists and learn all the skills needed to up your makeup.
