Back in June, I was asked to be a part of a beauty event hosted by fashion editor Lee Frazier and Make Up For Ever located at NorthPark in Dallas, Tx. I’m definitely one of those gals that are always open for a fun day of beauty, so I was excited to see what this was all about.
Trained by some of the top makeup artist in Dallas, the Make Up For Ever team put together a class on “how to contour” for all guest that attended. We were trained on learning the basics of face shape and how master complexion and contour techniques.
My Beauty Favorites
Now, I didn’t want to give away all their beauty secrets, so I decided to just highlight the products that were most interesting to me.
Step 1) Prepare your skin.
My favorite product used during step 1:
The Gentle Milk Moisturizing Cleansing Milk - This cleanser effectively removes face and (non-waterproof) eye and lip makeup all while purifying the skin. It made my skin feel super soft and it also had a lovely light almond smell to it.
Steps 2-6) Here is where you apply foundation, concealer, set your complexion products with powder (if needed), highlight and contour.
Two of my favorite products used during steps 2-6:
158 Double Ended Sculpting Brush - This “two in one” ended brush worked as a tool for powder application and sculpting. The round side can be used for powder application and highlighting with the angle side being used for sculpting the cheekbones. Note, that this brush can also be used with loose and compact powders.
Sculpting Kit – This compact powder duo highlights and contours the complexion for a natural finish. With its neutral undertones and matte finish, this product creates the illusion of a more sculpted face shape by enhancing your best features.
Step 7-10) Eyebrows, mascara, cheeks, lips and Mist+Fix.
Here are two of my favorites used during steps 7-10:
Mist and Fix - This mist is amazing and it seals your makeup on your face for up to 12 hours! It also provides protection from external issues such as pollution and temperature.
Aqua Rouge Waterproof Liquid Lip Color – If you’re a red lipstick gal like me, you’ll love this product! I loved the color and the best part is that it doesn’t fade or come off.

Here's a before and after that I did so that you’re able to see the difference.
