Beauty Basics Tip #2
Instead of using those tiny blush brushes that come with the product, invest in a blush brush! A blush brush is simply a smaller version of the large powder brush. This small fluffy brush ensures that you won’t have a streaky application of color on cheeks.
“The ABC’s of beauty are simple: Groomed eyebrows/removing any unwanted facial hair, foundation or powder to perfect the canvas, bronzer to add luminosity, mascara to bring definition to the eyes and lip liner and lipstick or gloss to add a supple texture and color to the lips. These products are the basics in which to build a simple, glamorous look,” explains Fine, pictured here with runway model star Arlenis Sosa.
