makeup can be transformative. not just for stage & not just for the face. there are many ways to use makeup to hide flaws, or play up one’s favorite qualities on the body. here are a few makeup artist tricks for making the most of your skin south of your chin.
how to enhance cleavage is one of the most common questions I receive at photo shoots, at personal makeup training appointments, & from friends.
here are the steps:
1. wear a push-up bra. this will give the chest a little extra boost & definition.
2. highlight the area between the breasts with a powder foundation approximately two shades lighter than your natural skin tone. using a small domed eyeshadow brush, apply the powder in a vertical line between your newly pushed-up cleavage.
3. apply a light, mat bronzer that is approximately two shades darker than your natural skin tone. with an angle brush, define each breast with a soft sweeping curve of bronzer that both starts & ends beneath your clothing. the bronzer should create a shadow effect, defining the top & inner curves of the décolletage.
4. repeat steps 2 & 3 until the desired amount of definition & blending is achieved.
