How To: HD Photo-Ready Makeup

Monday, July 15, 2013

We've gotten TONS of requests for a photo-ready makeup How-To using only HD Products. So here it is! Your picture perfect makeup in just a few steps. 

Step 1: Prime the skin for a long lasting base and a pore less finish using our Mineral Infused Face Primer. Try not to wear SPF if you know you're going to be photographed because SPF can cause flashback. Flashback makes your face look super white, while the rest of your body is it's normal color.

Step 2: Apply our Flawless Finish Foundation with a Foundation Brush using downwards brushstrokes for a smooth application.

Step 3: Conceal any under eye circles or blemishes using our HD Lifting Concealer. Dot the product onto the eye area and pat it in using your fingers for a natural look.

Step 4: Dab our HD Blush onto the back of your hand, dip the Small Stipple Brush into the product and wipe off any excess. Gently stipple and blend the product onto the cheekbones for a flawless flush. (we used our HD Blush in 'Diva')

Step 5: Powder the face using our High Definition Powder in 'Translucent'. We powdered Elle's forehead, nose, chin, and under her eyes. This will set the makeup for long lasting results, and will hide any unwanted pores! Just make sure you blend this product in THOROUGHLY.

Step 6: For photo-ready eye makeup, start by priming the eyes using our Eyelid Primer. Next, apply a matte cream shade to the lid all the way up to the brow bone. Define the eye using our Matte Eyeshadow in 'Chestnut' for a natural contour.

Step 7: Line the eyes using our Matte Eyeshadow in 'Charcoal' and a Small Angled Brush. Blend out the eyeliner for a smoky, sultry line.

Step 8: Finish off the lips using our Lipstick in 'Classy'. Matte and semi-matte lips look best in photos.

What's YOUR go-to photo ready look?

I love my elf makeup products. I love what the make has done for my skin and how it PETA friendly. I would like for elf to take things step further by creating a recycling system in which we consumers can send out empty bottles, compacts etc back to elf so that they can be recycled and reused whenever possible.
