pro makeup artist tutorial
Ash K Holm is a Los Angeles-based Makeup Artist known around the world for creating soft makeup looks and glowing skin. I love a warm, healthy-looking glow, so I’m incredibly excited that Ash has created an easy bronzed look using some of her favourite Trinny London products.
Ladies and boys, applying your makeup should feel effortless, and this is a real masterclass in simple, soft makeup that highlights your favourite features...
“The best part of this tinted serum is you can use your fingers and the product just melts into the skin. It’s very lightweight and buildable, which is great for everyday wear. It really works to tackle the long and short-term effects of cortisol, and the hyaluronic acid helps to keep the skin nice and hydrated and plump.”
“This product reminds me of an eye serum and a concealer all in one. [The applicator] is really cool to the touch, so I like to take my time to work this in because it feels so good underneath the eyes – I love that it helps to depuff.”
“Literally, all I need is a touch of product, and it melts into the skin like a dream. This is a 2-in-1 foundation-concealer and you can use it on so many different areas of the face for so many different things. I don’t want to cover every inch of my skin, just those minor imperfections. When I’m working with my celebrity clientele, that’s exactly the technique we try to go for – we just like to use coverage in the right areas, and it gives you that flawless look without overdoing it.”
“This cream-based bronzer has a beautiful golden undertone and it’s really easy to use – I feel like I’m finger painting, it’s that easy. I’m using this to give my skin a little bit of life and a little bit of colour.”
“This is such a game-changer. It doesn’t cake up, you just press it in and let it work its magic. Just go over any areas where you want to mattify, blur and smooth out the skin texture.”
“It’s a very long-lasting, concentrated pigment that’s lightweight, but also buildable. I’m using just a drop on the tops of my cheeks and in the centre of my lips. I want a hint of a pinky-bronzed glow and this shade is honestly perfect for that.”
“What’s so cool about this set is it’s magnetic. I’m going to be using the lip brush to contour my lips and the smudge brush for a little more definition around my eyes.”
Eye2Eye in Queen and Empress
“I’m going to keep my eyes light and bronzey using the shade Queen, and I’m using Empress as a liner. Queen gives the eye such a nice glow, and Empress is a beautiful deep-bronze tone with a little glimmer to it. I feel like you can’t mess this up because these eye shades are so light and soft.”
