TDL ROCKS! Part 4 of The 5 Minute Face: Eyes & Lips. WE’RE DONE!


A big thank you to Tara Dowburd-Luftman for all of her ez-to-use tips on THE 5 MINUTE FACE!  We’ve been getting great feedback and I have personally been looooving the translucent powder and not looking like a grease pit by mid-day!

Here’s the FINAL few steps in PART 4 starting with curling the eyelashes, applying mascara, then lipliner & lipgloss.  Eeek, I had been using the same Shu Uemura eyelash curler for probably 3 YEARS!   I just replaced it and wow, what a big difference.    Go to the SHU UEMURA SITE to purchase one.  They’re only $19.

I HAD IT ALL WRONG! Part 3 of Tara’s 5 Minute Face: Powder & Bronzer

Thank God for Tara Dowburd-Luftman of Makeup Therapy!  In Part 3 of her 5 Minute Face, TDL shows us how to apply the RIGHT TYPE OF POWDER & BRONZER.   I found out I’ve been doing it all wrong for about 15 years now!   

Tara recommends translucent powder without color to set and get rid of shine.  I’ve been using a “dual finish” powder and always looked like a grease-pit by the middle of the day.  PLUS, she recommends using a  bronzer without shimmer in it.   Yep, I had that wrong too!

Her top pick for translucent powder is by LAURA MERCIER,

For bronzer she loves BOBBI BROWN,
