On the hottest day of July, my friends and I went to a make-up workshop at Massy Creations. Make-up artist Nanja Massy taught us her tips&tricks, from day creams to eyeshadows. Knowing we would be hot, she immediately started to fill our glasses with cava – she knows what a girl wants. ♡ Putting make-up on your face in 30 degrees is not the perfect combo, but still, we did have a great time and loved using her make-up products (gimme that lipstick collection, pretty please).
We each got our own mirror and make-up brushes and Nanja also gave us our own pen (which looked like a lipstick – it’s in the details) and a face on paper (I don’t know if there exists a word for this, hihi), so we could write everything nicely down. Here is a short summary of what I thought was most interesting:
- When you’re applying your foundation, you should always blend it down, not up
- You should apply highlight on your cheakbones, Cupid’s bow (upper lip) and in between your eyebrows (down -> up)
- Blush should be applied as follows: put two finger next to your lips, make a duckface and apply in the area right under your cheakbones, then make a 3 -> up untill above your eyebrow (the middle of it) and down.
If you want to learn more of Nanja’s tips and tricks, you should really go to one of her make-up workshops. Reservations can be made on her website: www.massycreations.be
