Here are a few things I learned during my lesson:
1. Primer is a must. I have always discounted using this product, but after trying Jentry's line applied with a makeup brush, I am a believer. It made a tremendous difference in the ultimate outcome of my finished look.
2. Powder blush is not the enemy. I have not used that product in many years. Instead, I have favored crème blush since I thought it imparted a more flattering outcome. But with the application of the powder blush on top of a setting powder, my blush lasted all day and looked entirely natural.
3. My eyebrows were much more flattered with a powder that is far lighter than the one I had been using. Apply the powder with a firm slanted brush started at the bottom of the brow and then brushing up and out.
4. Bronzer can look natural. With Marissa's expert application, the bronzer she selected for me looked really good.
5. And this is the hardest lesson of all for me to put into everyday practice... no eyeliner nor mascara on the bottom lashes. I am a huge fan of lots of eyeliner and a smoky eye of sorts for day and an even smokier one for night. But as Marissa explained, that technique is very aging. If one (that would be me) insists on having some definition on the lower eyelashes, then a medium dark powder applied with a stiff brush using a very light hand is okay.
