Need makeup for a big event? We did, and thankfully the folks at Vera Wang recommended Ashlee Glazer. Ashlee came to our hotel prior to both balls and worked her magic. Not only was the makeup perfection but, Ashlee was adorable and fun and full of great tips. Next up, I’m hiring her to help me with an easy, “no makeup'” look for everyday. Ashlee’s Go-To Products:
Madina Highlight: A product from Italy that’s a fashion week favorite. The perfect champagne gold/silver cream highlighting stick. A dab on the bridge of the nose, cheekbones, and cupids bow gives the perfect glow.
Clairins Beauty-Flash Balm: Lifts, tightens, and smoothes pores. Great way to look fresh, fast.
MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick: The best neutral for all skin tones. It’s that trustworthy color you can apply without looking in the mirror. And, 100% of the selling price goes to those affected with HIV/AIDS– I love to get clients hooked, and I give it as gifts.
YSL Touche Éclat: Brightens and highlights– makes everyone look fresh and well rested.
Best Makeup Tip: When applying blush and bronzer, I like do to a light dusting at the hairline, under the nose, and jawline.This sculpts and frames the face, bringing more attention to the eyes.
Most Common Mistake Women Make: Staying within their comfort zone– trying something new every now and then keeps it fresh!
