CAKE IT LIKE A PRO

Calling all makeup enthusiasts! Today, we're diving into the exciting world of makeup artistry and sharing some expert tips on how to cake your face like a pro. Whether you're a makeup novice or a seasoned pro, there's always room to enhance your skills and discover new techniques. Remember, makeup is an expression of your individuality, so embrace your creativity and don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone. Whether you're aiming for a natural glow or a bold statement, mastering the art of makeup is all about confidence, practice, and a touch of daring flair. So, grab your brushes and let's get started on our journey to flawless beauty!

Prep and Prime

Every masterpiece starts with a clean canvas, and the same goes for your face. Begin your makeup routine by cleansing your skin to remove any impurities and creating a smooth base. After cleansing, consider applying a gentle exfoliator to remove any dead skin cells, leaving your complexion even more radiant. This step not only enhances the effectiveness of your skincare but also ensures a flawless makeup application. Once your canvas is prepped, it's time to prime. Think of primer as the secret weapon in your beauty arsenal—it minimizes pores, smoothens the skin, and ensures your makeup stays put throughout the day. 

Concealer Chronicles

Now that your canvas is prepped and primed, let's tackle imperfections. A good concealer is always your best friend. Choose a shade that matches your skin tone to conceal blemishes or go a shade lighter to brighten up the under-eye area. Our pro tip? Invest in Otis Batterbee's Concealer Brush Duo to achieve a flawless blend. Its dual brush design allows for targeted application and seamless blending, ensuring that your concealer doesn't just cover imperfections but becomes an integral part of your radiant, natural-looking complexion. Otis Batterbee is here to make your concealer application an art form.

Rosy Cheeks for Days

No makeup look is complete without a pop of color on the cheeks. For fair skin, lighter pinks and peaches work well, while deeper skin tones may benefit from berry or bronze tones. It's also important to keep in mind that cream blushes provide a dewy finish and work well for dry skin, while powder blushes are excellent for oily skin and offer a matte finish. At Otis Batterbee, we've found that it's easier to add more blush if needed than to tone it down if you've applied too much. Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks for a natural, rosy glow and start with a small amount until you achieve the desired intensity. 

Setting the Stage

You've put in the work, and now it's time to set the stage. Makeup setting spray is the final touch that ensures your masterpiece stays intact. Not only does it keep your makeup in place, but it also adds a refreshing finish to your overall look. A few spritzes, and you're ready to conquer the world with your flawless face. To ensure an even application, hold the setting spray at arm's length and mist it over your face in a "T" or "X" shape. This helps to cover your entire face without oversaturating any specific area. After applying the setting spray, allow it to air-dry. Avoid fanning your face or using excessive movements, as this may disturb the setting process. Letting it dry naturally ensures a more even and long-lasting finish.
