The Makeup Podcast is now on itunes, soundcloud and google play!

Years ago, my Photographer friend Louis Torres told me to do a podcast. At the time I had no idea what that meant or why the heck I would want to do it, but he was so right. It’s been in the back of my mind, and I was never ready to do it. Until Now. Now it makes so much sense and definitely fits my M.O.

Sooooo, Today I launched my first Podcast. The title of the show is still a work in progress but for now I am just going with THE MAKEUP PODCAST.

Please let me know what you think.

What do you want to hear?

What burning questions do you have that I can answer for you?

Professionals are encouraged to ask business related questions as well.

This is going to be broadcast on various channels. Links below;

How to prime eyelids for makeup

Are you having problems making eyeshadow last all day?

Do you see creases in your makeup? Lots of shadow “fallout” under your eyes?

Here are some helpful tips and tricks to make your eyeshadow last all day, without any of these issues.

DO NOT APPLY EYE CREAM TO EYELIDS, you read that correctly.Eye cream should be applied around the eyes, but notup to the lash line and not on the eyelid itself. As with ANY product you should read the manufacturers instructions. If it does say to apply it to the lid and lash line, do it at night before bed but not during the day before makeup. Pretend you have makeup on and are trying to avoid ruining it, this is where it should be applied.

APPLY PRIMER Using either a CLEAN finger or concealer brush like the Sigma F75 Brush or a Kabuki Concealer Brush.

Try using a product like Mica Beauty Cream shadow primer, Smashbox Lid Primer Or Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don’t Stray Shadow Stay Put Primer. 

Apply a THIN layer of shadow primer to the eyelids; from the lash line right up to the eyebrow.

All have concealer like consistencies, except they won’t crease, and won’t make your eyelids feel heavy and thick from too much product.

Once the primer is evenly spread on the lid, you can them begin your eyeshadow application.

If you have a specific problem you’d like addressed or you have a question you need answered, please feel free to email Genn

How to fix a broken shadow or other makeup powder

Fixing broken makeup is easier then you think…..

All you need is a pressing tool, rubbing alcohol, a cracked powder and a little patience.

Here’s a step by step instruction.

1. Wash your hands with soap and run under hot water for at least 20 seconds.

2. Lightly drop rubbing alcohol onto cracked spots of powder careful to not drown the powder.

3. Press the powder down info the pan with a flat-ish pressing tool like a butter knife or metal spatula:

4. Gently push and smooth the product with your fingers.

5. Let air dry uncovered for a few hours then check back. Once it’s dry you can close the compact it’s in.
