3. What tools would you utilize for correcting sun tan lines?

An airbrush like Temptu or a Kett Jet is a great choice many professional makeup artist would use to alleviate tan lines.

Embryolisse Rosewater Toner will take away the sting, sensitivity, and redness from sun exposure. TwinMedix Exfoliator and Oxygenator are great tools to minimize texture and help heal the skin. Papaw ointment is a rich balm designed to ease the ache of burns and blisters and Embryolisse La Creme is a makeup artist favorite originally designed for burn victims that can soothe and prepare sun wrecked skin for foundation or other products.

5. Brows are a crazy big category here in Texas… I mean BIG! What are some of your favorite products besides known brands such as Anastasia Beverly Hills, M.A.C. and Makeup Forever that help give a light modern brow and that is not as harsh as Dipbrow Pomade type of products?

Kevyn Aucoin The Brow Pencil is perfect for drawing in fine hairs that look natural. Komiko launches with us for the first time here at The Makeup Show this year and their eyebrow pencils are the perfect size and shape for designing an elegant and natural looking eyebrow. Senna Cosmetics The Brow Fix is a beautiful natural gel developed by Eugenia Weston, the original brow guru, who developed such industry staples as the brow pencil.
