Behind-the-Scenes Beauty Secrets with Image Consultant Brandie Price

She has gathered up FOUR of her favorite beauty secrets from all of her years behind the camera! These tips are sure to get you more in love with your beauty routine, so without further ado- here are her top 4:

  1. Use a Hydrating SPF under your makeup. As the sun heats up the air, we stand to lose the much needed moisture our skin needs to maintain hydration and stay comfortable. Look for lightweight formulas that contain at least 25 SPF, like the Olay Regenerist Whip SPF 25. This powerhouse moisturizer utilizes “Active Rush Technology” which has a unique structure that transforms from creme to a liquid on the skin. It is dermatologist tested and hydrates skin to improve elasticity and firm skin, while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, thanks to vitamin B3 and peptides. It is Non-Comedogenic meaning that it won’t clog your pores or irritate your skin. This wonderful creme is available on for under $30 or check out your local retailer for curbside pickup.
  2. Once your foundation is in place, use a talc free translucent setting powder to blend and set your makeup. I recommend the Make Up For Ever HD powder in translucent. Because of its silica base, it is a true multi-purpose powder. Absorbing over 1200% of its weight in moisture this lightweight powder helps blend liquid products flawlessly, even for touch ups. It’s colorless composition is ideal for all skin tones, and it won’t build up and cake throughout your day. This product can be found at Sephora at Clay Terrace for $37
  3. There is no such thing as over blending. Now if you want that daily effortless beauty look, you will need a good set of natural bristles. Why? Synthetic bristles are good for placing product, while natural bristles are more suited for blending.  There are lots of brush companies that you can get natural bristles brushes from and many of the Clean Beauty Trends are making Vegan natural-like brushes more readily available. EcoTools makes incredible budget-friendly brush sets that are great for blending. Prices vary, but start at $6.99. Available at Target, Walgreens for local curbside pickup. 
  4. Let’s talk mascara for a minute. It’s a love/hate relationship right? I know you love the way it looks once it’s on, but most women hate the actual application process. I have been sharing this trick with clients for nearly 23 years now and this is the first time it will be televised, are you ready? Get you mascara ready ladies! When you pull your mascara wand out of the tube, you will stop just shy of the bristles. Then using the inside lip of the tube, you are going to bend that mascara wand to a more suitable angle for application. Let’s go for about a 55 degree angle. See how that gives you everything you need for an ideal and effortless application?  And- the wand will stay bent through all of your applications with that tube.
