Back in December, when I was brainstorming 2022 goals, I threw “learning to do my make-up” into the mix. I am happy to report that I made progress on that front, thanks to today’s Best of Both Worlds guests!
This week’s episode looks at make-up and styling. Jenny Eversole, a longtime BOBW listener, owns Style Space, a virtual styling platform. Her stylists offer individual sessions on wardrobe, accessories, and make-up. Make-up artist and clean beauty expert Rebecca Kirkwood did two sessions with me, one on making over my make-up bag (basically, studying my face and telling me what to buy), and then after I had made my online purchases, “Flawless in 15 Minutes” on how to apply all the new stuff.
It was an enlightening experience. I ventured into the world of ILIA and Kosas (a step up from my drug store fare). I learned that liquid and cream products tend to produce a dewier glow than powder. I embraced the genius of the ILIA Multi-Stick, which can be used as a cream blush, and using eye-shadow and mascara instead of eyeliner. Rebecca taught me that while we can use foundation (e.g. my new ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40) plus concealer to help cover some under-eye circles, what really minimizes them is to make your eyes pop with the right make-up up there. Including a brow product. Trust me, I had never gone there before.
Also, I was told to stop wearing brown-colored lipstick and have switched to a light pink. The brown one was a bit too 90s, apparently, which is funny, since that’s likely when I chose the shade.
Anyway, Sarah did a style session on accessories and we all talked about when to use a stylist, some online videos that are helpful for adults (no crazy contouring!) and other great topics. So please give the episode a listen, and if you’re looking for make-up (or accessory or wardrobe) help, check out Style Space.
