Makeup Essentials With Artist Marcela Tobar

Bridge Street

Women use makeup to hide their flaws and highlight their best features, but a lot isn’t needed to achieve a great look. Makeup artist Marcela Tobar has a few must-have essentials for every woman.

First is a brow gel to make your eyebrows pop, especially if you want to add a pop of color.

A concealer is everyone’s best friend. If you aren’t putting on a full face of makeup just apply to the under-eye area to conceal dark circles or any other imperfections. Tobar says to use a concealer that is your same skin tone and to apply using your finger to push it into the skin because warming the concealer helps to blend it. If you want to use concealer to highlight, go a shade lighter.

Mascara is another must to give lashes a pop and draw attention to the eye.

Lipstick or lip gloss is also essential to add a pop of color.

Tobar also advises women to use a bronzer as a highlighter because it adds warmth. Apply a bronzer from the forehead along your hairline curving around your eye then underneath your cheekbones and then curving along your jaw in a number 3 motion.
