She is a well-known make-up artist and beauty founder who spends most of her days in her new studios at FYFE – her unparalleled app where you can watch the best videos of leading makeup artists and stylists from around the world – but some of Jillian Dempsey’s best-selling products are actually skincare . “Any make-up artist knows that skin preparation is absolutely necessary,” she says. “That’s why our red carpet kits are full of skin secrets.” For spring, Dempsey loves a minimal makeup look, with an emphasis on translucent pigments and beautiful skin. “Apply the paint even before you start with a foundation or concealer,” she says. “You may find that you need a lot less or you don’t need it. That look of bare skin with a little color in me looks like spring. “Dempsey’s step-by-step effortless make-up guide starts with beautiful skin; bright, hydrated eyes; and more dewy glow.
Shiny, raised, puffy skin
Start with the serum
Dempsey likes to start with a light vitamin C serum on freshly washed skin. “Wait a few minutes for it to soak,” she says.
Cleanse and revitalize with eye masks
These cool, smoothing, fat-removing, ultra-hydrating prebiotic eye masks wake up your whole face. “Stick one under each eye,” Dempsey says. “Be sure to remove the protective linings – one on each side of the mask – to get to the actual mask in the center,” Dempsey says.
A layer of shiny moisture
“I love how moisturizing this new moisturizer is,” Dempsey says. “It’s made from shine-causing ingredients like vitamin C. It’s the latest addition to my skincare routine, and it’s also the best under makeup. Here are a few moisturizing drops of GOOPGENES face oil. “Make sure your skin is evenly covered,” she says. “Having a layer of moisturizer or oil (or both, as I like) creates a good skin glide for the next step, a vibrating roller. If your skin is too dry, the bar pulls back and doesn’t smooth enough to give you maximum benefits. “
Relax, sculpt and lose (again)
“Now use a gold sculpting bar to smooth your face,” Dempsey says. “Try to spend three to five minutes on each side of your face. Treat it as a sculpting tool, smoothing and contouring areas in need. Target your eyelids – you can roll over the masks and vibrations will help you push the ingredients into your skin. Then focus on the sides of your mouth, moving upward toward the hairline. If there is time, I like to spend a few minutes on my neck. And no matter how long you do it, just enjoy it: and it’s completely addictive and relaxing, so your face glows with radiant gentle stimulation. “
Give your eyes an extra look
“After ten to twelve minutes, remove the eye masks and follow the eye cream,” Dempsey says. “Massage everything well with your fingers. This makes the whole area popular. “
Seal everything for ultimate shine
“Massage a little extra shiny lotion on your face and neck, then finish with a moisturizing mist all over your face and neck and you’re ready to paint,” she says.
Play with Great Skin
A strategic touch of color
“I like translucent translucent tones on my eyes with lighter shades on my cheeks,” Dempsey says. “Try to apply only paint and use less (or no) substrates: You can always go back and touch all the necessary areas. There are no rules regarding additions. ”
A mere hint of eye color
“My eyelid shade in Shell is the perfect glittery pearl shade for spring and summer,” says Dempsey. “Wear it alone on your eyelids or cheekbones, Cupid’s bow, cleavage, and even the tops of your shoulders to bounce off with the most beautiful accent. I like to combine it with a little gloss lotion or GOOPGENES face cream. “
Warm your faces
“Sunny is nude which is absolutely the best color to give your skin a kiss of warmth,” Dempsey says. “Smile first, soak the apples of your cheeks, and then melt your fingers in a circular motion. This brilliant color wash also allows freckles to live. “
Inky Dark Lashes
“I love defined, healthy lashes,” Dempsey says.
Healthy, moist lips
“I like a completely natural lip with this look, and I love goop lip balm – it has the best texture and a little shine,” Dempsey says.
