There is always one product that makeup artists will tell you they cannot work without and I have yet to encounter a makeup artist that has not said the Make Up For Ever Flash Palette (aka: 12 Flash Color Case). This palette allows the user to create virtually any shade that can be used almost anywhere!
Let’s set up some examples, shall we?
You’re off to an interview and realize you forgot your eyeliner and mascara (if you’re like me, you don’t feel yourself or your best without these products!), but you realize you have your palette in the bottom of your bag!
- Dip the very tip of your pinky finger into the brown cream and with light pressure, rub your finger along your lash line smudging the color within your lashes.
- Stick your middle finger into the black, then press your middle finger and thumb together- transferring some of the color to your thumb.
- Lightly pinch your lashes between your middle finger and thumb. Then pull the color through the end of the lashes.
The look will be a slight smokey eye with dark lashes! Another example? You are off to drinks with your girlfriends and get stuck in the rain. Your foundation/concealer slides right off that awful blemish you have on your chin. No worries, you can fix this.
- Mix the peach, the white, a dab of brown and a maybe a dab of yellow (the mix will vary based upon your skin tone) and you have foundation to cover that blemish!
I watched a makeup artist do an entire face for fashion week with this palette. Try the light blue with a bit of silver and white on your lids to make a creamy base for eye shadow or apply the peach to your cheeks for a warm glow. Try the red on your lips or mix some gold with the white and you have a highlighter for your brow bone, cheekbones and inner eye corner. The possibilities are endless and the product will be gone before it goes bad; it lasts a very long time! It’s a multifunctional product that is flying off the shelves at Make Up For Ever! Try it, you will not be sorry.
