This morning, we’re shooting videos with Stila’s Pro Makeup Artist Sarah Lucero, who is just about the coolest person ever. The LA-based artist is showing us a must-learn look inspired by the Fall 2011 runway shows. But first, she gave me a little tutorial in flawless foundation application. She uses Beautyblender sponges, which in addition to be adorably egg-shaped and fuchsia, help foundation melt into the skin for a completely natural finish. She dampens the sponge, dips it in the makeup, and lightly rolls it onto skin. The makeup blends in perfectly, no lines, smears, or creases. And, she says, you can use a damp Beautyblender sponge to freshen up during the day — simply roll it across skin to revive foundation. Guess what tool I’m lobbying to have added to the Birchbox Shop?
Stay tuned for more! In the meantime, check out our archive of how-to videos!
