Beauty Tips From the Cosmetic Guru’s from Make-Up Pro New York NYFW│FW17
I fought a killer and didn’t even smudge my make-up.
― Rose Pressey, Flip That Haunted House
Pretty much sums up NYFW but with the right tools → your make-up can become your next best accessory! Like the queen of all models, Tyra says:
I love the confidence that make-up gives me.
Make-up is a form of art that enables us to enhance the beauty we already poses. You have beautiful lips — a color will make them pop. Your eye lashes are your own and already visible — a mascara, a colorful one even, will create a dramatic effect. You are beautiful and make-up is meant to extenuate your features so have fun with.
Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.
