10 Beauty Tips Learned on Set
Posted on March 07 2017
Julie is known to have a few tricks up her sleeve when it comes to beauty. Well, I was able to snag these tips out of her in between her managing her cosmetics line and her schedule with doing makeup for various celebrities, TV or movie sets. Enjoy!
1. Put the tweezer in the freezer so it’s cold for plucking, so that it makes it less painful.
2. Castor oil is beneficial to thicken brows and lashes. Apply where wanted.
3. Add a drop of organic Camellia oil to liquid foundation for anti-aging benefits and a dewy glow.
4. Put powder on the eyelid before you put on eyeshadow, because powder adheres to powder and makes it go on smoother.
5. When doing a matte red lipstick, use Belle Noir lipstick, an orange/red hue to the center of the lower lip to give the lip dimension and make the lip look fuller.
6. Do the lips before the eyes so you can balance the lips before the eyes. Julie says that someone is always guaranteed to look make-up ready when lips are done, even if you don’t have time for the eyes.
7. At the end of the night, actors use hot towels infused with a drop of lavender and eucalyptus oil to take their make up off and wind down after the long work day. It’s easy, run a towel under clean water until it’s full of water, and sprinkle a drop or two of eucalyptus oil and lavender oil to the towel. Then, place the towel in the microwave for 2 minutes and gently wipe makeup off.
8. If you’re impatient to let a manicure dry, run it under cold water. This will help them dry faster.
9. If you have puffy eyes, soak a cotton pad in witch hazel and apply under the eye area.
10. Actors and celebrities have been known to dip their face in freezing cold water (add ice!) to firm and take away puffiness, especially if they had a long night out. This is an old tip that Julie learned from a Broadway actress. It boosts blood circulation to the face and is an instant face lift.
