Meet my make up consultant! Raychel Wade is a beauty and knows her stuff. Check her out at Cheek to Chic.
You are a make up consultant, give me an idea of what that is vs. a make up artist?
I AM A MAKEUP ARTIST FIRST AND FOREMOST, BUT WHEN I STARTED MY BUSINESS - CHEEK TO CHIC - AND I CAME UP WITH SERVICES THAT HELP EVERYDAY WOMEN WITH THEIR MAKEUP NEEDS , LIKE PERSONAL SHOPPING AND APPLICATION LESSONS, I REALIZED I WAS BEING MORE OF A CONSULTANT. SO REALLY, I'M BOTH!
Everyone dislikes something on their face. Mine is the circles around my eyes. What are you top tips?
FOR DARK CIRCLES, YOU WANT TO START WITH A GOOD EYE CREAM THAT CONTAINS VITAMIN K. NEXT LOOK FOR A GREAT CONCEALER THAT HAS GOOD COVERAGE. I LOVE BOBBI BROWN'S CREAMY CONCEALER AND THE CONCEALER STICK BY CLE DE PEAU-- A LITTLE PRICEY BUT TOTALLY WORTH IT.
I hardly wear much but lip gloss, give me an idea of what I could do in under 5 minutes to look fresher?
PEOPLE THINK THAT YOU NEED A LOT OF MAKEUP, WHEN In FACt JUST A FEW KEY ITEMS CAN MAKE WOMEN LOOK RESTED AND BEAUTIFUL. IF YOU ONLY HAVE FIVE MINUTES I WOULD DO THE FOLLOWING: CURL YOUR LASHES, MASCARA (LOTS OF IT), CONCEALER, BRONZER, A BRIGHT PINK BLUSH AND GLOSS.
What is a hot new product or trend in makeup?
PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS EXPERIMENTING WITH COLOR AND THERE ARE MORE AND MORE LINES BEING INTRODUCED THAT ARE GIVING MAC A RUN FOR THEIR MONEY. ALSO, EXPERIMENT WITH TEXTURE. TRY A CREAM BLUSH OR CREAM SHADOW AND LAYER IT WITH A POWER. THIS IS THE KEY TO HAVING YOUR MAKEUP LAST ALL DAY!
