Armed with these power pencils, we asked makeup artist Amiria, who recently won Bobbi Brown New Zealand’s Makeup Artist of the Year, for her tricks and tips.
Retouching Face Pencil
Amiria’s favourite of the range is the “Illuminate” shade, she likes to dot this in the inner corner of the eyes and above the cupids bow to accentuate her features. She also likes using the pencil as a highlight, drawing three small x’s on her cheekbones and blending this out with her fingers.
For a bit of sculpting, Amiria recommends using a pencil in a deeper tone as a bronzer. She likes to draw dashes on her temples and cheekbones, blending this out to create a natural shadow.
For blemishes, Amiria reaches for a pencil that is two shades lighter than her skin tone to cancel out any redness. She then likes to apply her actual shade of concealer over the top for ultimate coverage.
This low maintenance wand is a perfect addition to your handbag, offering undetectable coverage on the go.
Amiria likes to swipe this on her t-zone after moisturising for a light and glowy look. For quick touch-ups, she likes to dab this under the eyes and on discolourations, blurring imperfections with a ‘skin that looks like skin’ finish.
