On a recent trip to New York, I had the opportunity to sit down with Elizabeth Arden Global Makeup Artist, Rebecca Restrepo. In between chatting beauty trends and new products, I had to pick the celebrity makeup artist about her favorite beauty tips in hopes to pass on some expert advise to you guys. Her top beauty tip? Pure gold.
Use an angled brush to dip into the excess product on a mascara wand (usually the tip of the bristles) and apply it like gel eyeliner. Whether you’re packing light or perhaps you ran out of your favorite eyeliner, this tip is great to keep in mind. Go for a waterproof formula for budge-proof wear!
Rebecca adds a word of caution though, “Mascara will be more dry, so dab it into the lashline instead of gliding it across like a typical gel eyeliner. You’ll get a much better, more clean result.”Since we’re on the topic of mascaras… here are a few formulas (and eyeliner brushes) we think would be worthy of giving Rebecca’s tip a try. shop this story
