Among GLAMSQUAD artists, capturing Artist, Melanie Togo's demonstration
For both looks she used HD Creme Foundation to create model, Danielle Dubinsky's base and contour. Melanie's trick to applying the creme foundation is to apply it on the back of her sanitized hand. This warms the product before application. She also adds Argan Oil to the skin to sheer down the foundation for a lighter coverage.
One of Melanie's favorite products is our Brow Trio. She loves the pigmentation, ease of application and matte finish.
For the lips, Melanie started the natural look with Liquid Matte in Heirloom topped with Clear Gloss. To deepen the shade she added Vintage from the HD Creme Lip & Cheek Palette. With soft neutrals as a base, Vintage applied brighter version of itself.
Throughout the Master Class, Melanie shared her application tips that help her achieve a photo ready look.
The event ended with Poise Makeup Professional goodie bags and networking. We throughly enjoyed our time with GLAMSQUAD and can't wait to see what they create with Poise Makeup Professional!
