Ways to learn new makeup techniques

There’s always something new in the makeup world, and it can be hard to keep up with the latest trends and techniques. But don’t worry – we’re here to help! Check out our roundup of the latest and greatest makeup techniques you need to know about.

  1. Airbrushing: This technique is perfect for achieving a flawless complexion. Airbrushing uses a special machine to apply foundation, concealer, and other products evenly on your skin. It gives you a natural-looking finish that lasts all day long.
  2. Contouring is a great way to give your face some extra definition. Using a darker shade of foundation or powder in certain areas of your face can create the illusion of cheekbones, a slimmer nose, or a chiseled jawline.
  3. Baking is a technique that has been gaining popularity in recent years. It involves dusting your face with a loose powder and letting it sit for 5-10 minutes before brushing it off. This helps to set your makeup and give you a flawless finish.
  4. Cut creasing is a great way to make your eyes stand out. To do this, you’ll need to use an eyeshadow primer and an eyeshadow in the shade slightly darker than your skin tone. Then, use a small brush to create a defined line in the crease of your eye. This will help your eyeshadow stay in place and make your eyes look bigger.
  5. Highlighting is a great way to add glow to your skin. You’ll need to use a highlighter that’s a few shades lighter than your skin tone. Apply it to the tops of your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, and on your cupid’s bow. This will help give you a natural-looking glow.

Remember these techniques next time you’re doing your makeup, and you’ll surely achieve a flawless finish!

Tom Robertson

Miraculously evocative though they may be, raw and organic, Tom does not leave his photographs at the whim of environmental elements. He is instead driven to shape, and then perfect, every detail of every scene he creates, building his sets with his own hands from the ground up—transforming the bare walls of his studio into a lurid dreamscape, a languorous moment of passion, or a clandestine wood. He also draws from the tradition of still-life to explore the complex nuances of life on a closer, more intimate scale. Full of suggestive details and suffused with atmospheric lighting, Tom’s photographs read as suspended narratives—about our innermost drives and our fragile place in the world.
