"Crush" Your Makeup Goals in This Start to Finish Tutorial
February 25, 2020
There are many looks to create using Aleph Beauty’s small but considered range of multi use products.
In this video Emma shares her top tips to create a seamless look with a strong lip.
Apply Serum/Primer to clean skin, avoiding the eye area. This will help your Concealer/Foundation remain crease free (use Serum/Primer around the eye area at night to take advantage of the nourishing benefits).
With your Mixing Tool, Scoop out 1/3 -1/2 pea size of Concealer/Foundation onto the back of the hand and apply from there with your Diffuser Brush.
Gently buff the product into the skin in small circular motions, the fine fibres of your Diffuser Brush will cover the entire surface area of the skin, helping to blur any imperfections and even out your skin tone.
To cover extra troublesome spots, use the finger tips to tap the product in place to create a fuller coverage.
Tap around the eye area, avoiding tugging on the skin.
Using the fingertip, apply a light slick of Radiance ~ Moon to the eyelid. This shouldn’t be a thick application, it’s designed to bring a little light into the eye, so applying this in a well lit area is helpful so you can see the lovely reflect when applied.
Dab a little at the inner corners of the eyes to brighten up the eyes and draw some extra light in.
This also makes a perfect gentle highlight to the cheek bones.
Cheek/Lip Tint ~ Crush is a super versatile berry. This emulates the blood tone that we all have in our skin so it suits most skin tones.
Dab a small amount on the cheek bone and blend up and out with a clean finger.
Apply to the lip with a clean finger or a lip brush, layering to the desired intensity.
NB: and note to self… always take the foundation up to the hairline on the forehead when wearing the hair back. Being one to usually wear my fringe down, I don’t usually find it necessary to take this up onto the forehead, and in my excitement of filming this video, forgot that I was wearing my hair off may face!! 🤦♀️😂
