Insta look begone. Larry tells you what to use and how to use it to bring out your natural beauty for the camera.
1. Brows frame your face. Use quick, hairlike strokes to fill in sparse areas so your brows look fuller. And please follow your natural brow shape. Use: Za Brow Liner ($12.50). “The pencil has just the right firmness to quickly create a full brow. It comes in four universal shades that match most hair colours.” 2. Conceal only where needed: a dab under the eyes, and on blemishes. No need for exaggerated V-shaped concealing on the under-eye area, which just makes your face look flat. Use: M.A.C Studio Fix 24-hour Smooth Wear Concealer ($36). “A little goes a long way with this – it gives enough coverage without looking cakey. And with 33 shades, you’ll be able to find a suitable one for you.” 3. For a flattering glow, swop the powder highlighters for liquid or cream ones. Use: Nars Illuminator ($50). “Don’t pound it on so that it looks like a coat of chrome on your skin. Sheer it out for a skin-like glow, then put foundation over it. Your skin will look super radiant.” 4. Get a foolproof contour by using a foundation that’s three shades darker than your natural skin, with the same undertone. This ensures the contour doesn’t look too harsh, and meshes well with your foundation. Use: Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Foundation ($74) or Cover FX Power Play Foundation ($68). “Both have weightless formulas for a beautiful, soft-matte, skin-like finish, and an expansive range of shades so you’re able to find your best match.”
