How To

At-Home Makeup Master Class + Stain Removal

Jul 21, 2020

For my birthday, I wanted to look and feel festive, even though this year I’ll be celebrating at home. So I turned to my friend Romy Soleimani, makeup artist to stars like Reese Witherspoon and Tracee Ellis Ross. I asked her how to replicate “the Romy glow” because whenever I see here, she always has this incredible natural radiance. Over an IG live, Romy showed me how to create a gorgeous, glowy look that even a makeup novice like me can pull off. The result was stunning and so easy to do. Ahead, a rundown of the makeup moves, plus tricks for removing stains and smudges along the way.

Start by applying your favorite face lotion for a plumped up, hydrated base.

Apply an illuminating primer like Augustinus Bader Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturizer to the apples of your cheeks, where you want light to reflect.

“Too much foundation can age you,” Romy told me. “Just a little bit goes a long way. You don’t want to look too done, just super fresh.” She recommended Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation, which has a very sheer, liquid-y consistency that’s not at all cakey. Squirt a drop on the back of your hand, then, with a concealer brush, apply to areas where you need coverage—under the eyes, around the nose, or over any discoloration or redness.

I always keep one of our Lint-Free Cleaning Cloths around when I’m doing makeup to wipe my hands. This way, I’m not wasting a makeup wipe or tissue!

Swirl an angled face brush into a creamy bronzer such as Chanel Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream. Lightly dust the bronzer in an upward motion from the corner of your mouth to the top of your ear, up toward your hairline, and along the jawline. You can take some over the bridge of your nose, under your eyes, and beneath your lower lip, too. Next, use a big, fluffy brush to blend the formula into your skin and soften any harsh lines.

Pick up some peachy powder eyeshadow with an eyeshadow brush and swipe over lids in a windshield-wiper motion. Don’t go higher than the crease. Top it off with a light wash of creamy gold shadow: Use a finger to tap it over the center of your lids, moving toward the inner corners of your eyes. Finish with a bit of bronze cream eyeshadow on the outer third of your lids for depth.

Wash & Stain Bar is my go-to for any makeup related smudge or stain, whether it’s lipstick or foundation. “I like how sustainable it is!” Romy says. “The wrapper is reusable, and the bar dissolves as you use it so you don’t have to throw anything away.”

Eyeliner & Mascara
With a coffee-hued eyeliner (try MAC Eye Pencil in Costa Riche), trace your upper lash line. When you reach the outer corners, flick it up slightly, then use the edge of your pointer finger to diffuse the line. Swipe on a few coats of mascara.

Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tint in Very Charming is a natural, plant-based cream blush that absorbs into the skin for a fresh, rosy look,” says Romy. Smile, then dab a light veil of color over the apple of your cheeks with your middle finger. Use your ring finger to press into the skin and blend away the edges.

Brush brows up and out with a spoolie brush or a clean mascara wand. Fill in sparse areas with a tinted brow gel or powder.

Trace the outer edges of your lips with a pink-y brown lip liner like Bobbi Brown Lip Liner in Pink Mauve. After, use it to color in your lips. Slick on a peachy-nude lip gloss (Romy likes Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Buff), then add Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned, a brighter pink, to the inside center of your top and bottom lips for a pop of color.

Press a clear or champagne highlighter on the inner corners of your eyes, tops of cheeks, and brow bones for a pretty glow.

To tamp down any shiny areas, swirl on a finely-milled blurring powder. Only use where you need it. Done!
