WH Shows Betty Yip How to Put Makeup On To Get a New Look

Before
"I'm not the girl who runs into Sephora and tries new things."

"I've worn the same makeup since high school," says Yip, a pastry chef from Brooklyn, New York. "Remember those Maybelline eye shadow quads? I've gotten lazy--I just want to get out of the house quickly in the morning." Makeup artist Tamah K. showed Yip how to expand her beauty boundaries and get a fresh look without adding on to her morning routine.

Bring out your brows
"Reshaping your brows is the most effective way to change your look," Tamah says. Since they frame your face, it's important to maintain a shape that flatters your bone structure. Yip's were too arched, so Tamah straightened them.

Accent the positive
When playing with your makeup routine, focus on your strongest feature. For Yip, it's her almond-shaped eyes, so Tamah accented them with mascara and creamy, shimmery shadows. "Creams are easy to layer, so you can create different looks," she says.

Change your cheeks
"Blush quickly modifies your looks--just a touch of color and you're done!" Tamah says. Instead of the standard rosy hue, she applied a liquid bronzer on the apples of Yip's cheeks. "Changing from a powder to a cream or switching from a pink to a bronze are easy but effective tweaks."
