I recently dropped by for a make up session at Illumin8 studios for a one on one make up class and session with Nickol Walkemeyer for Savoirflair.com’s 3 ways to wear December shoot. I had my make up done by Nickol for a previous shoot with Grazia Magazine Middle East (& fell in love with my make up) so I was excited for a session as well as her tips. Here are some things I learnt…
-Don’t go for a foundation darker. Use your skin tone, and then warm it up.
-Start with the cheeks first, then do everything else.
-Start bronzer at the back of your face, and work your way forward.
-Blend the edges when applying eyeshadow.
-Black is easy to add. Leave the black pencil and shadow till the end if you really need it.
– Nickol’s favourite brown pencil? MAC teddy.
-Nickol’s favorite nude? MAC myth or creme de nude.
-For the lips, tap the lipstick with your fingers to warm up the color.
