When I was a makeup artist it was important to take classes to brush up on skills and learn more from other artists. Though the only face I beat these days is my own, I still love to learn different ways to do things when it comes to my makeup. After having my makeup done by makeup artist du jour Andi Yancey for our Face Flawless Skin photo shoot, I HAD to have Andi show me some of her secrets. So we booked a session together and I learned a few things that I now use in my makeup routine. I now contour differently because of Andi and I wanted to share a few things I learned.
Andi gave me a number of a-ha moments including contouring with ONLY powders, smoking out my waterline, and opting for different products for my highlight. You can see all of this go down in the video below.
