Today Show: 5 Things You Need In Your Makeup Bag
Missy Lynn claimed that there are five things that every woman should have in her makeup bag. She listed off mascara, brows, blush, a lip product, and a base, either concealer or foundation. The base will give you a more even complexion.
Today: Makeup When You’re Short On Time
Tamron then showed a woman who had half of her face done by Missy Lynn, to show what makeup can do for you. Missy explained that she applied mascara to open up her eyes and then a red lip to take attention off her eyes. She explained that if you’re pressed for time, you want to go with a lip color that will be the center of attention.
Like Tamron said, the great thing about this look is that you still look clean, with a pop.
Today Show: Dominant Brow for Youthful Look
With the next look, Missy explained that she focused more on the brows. She said she gave her more of a dominant brow, which gives her a more youthful look. She said you always want to go with a brow powder for a more natural look that looks more like hair. A pencil can make your brows look harsh.
Another great tip Missy gave was to test foundation on your chest, not your hand or cheek. She explained that you want it to be one complete look.
