Top makeup artist to the stars, Lori Neapolitan visited the Newsplex to show how she makes actresses camera ready. She shared her advice with our Tara Wheeler.
Neapolitan used her fingers while applying makeup on Wheeler. She says when you use your fingers, you use less products and it looks more natural on the skin.
“We’re doing that underneath the entire eye, side of the nose, side of the mouth. Sides of the nose, we’re going out sides of the mouth we’re going up, and what that does is that instantly opens up the face,” said Neapolitan.
Neapolitan also, shared tips on how to make your lips look fuller; she says you should first use a lighter color on your lips.
“The secret, always apply lip liner after lip stick. Most women learn how to put their liner on in a downward fashion. You don’t want anything to go down, you want everything to go up,” said Neapolitan.
Neapolitan also showed Tara Wheeler how to tweeze her eyebrows. Neapolitan says everyone has a high and low side to the framing of your face. She showed Tara Wheeler how to make her low side a little bit higher by adding powder.
“I’ve framed your eyes and brought your face out. It’s being able to feel more comfortable in our own skin, looking more beautiful and enhancing your natural beauty,” said Neapolitan.
