Instagram gives us our own personal lighting crew. And anyone who has been on television or walked a red carpet can tell you that lighting is key for picture-perfect results. It can highlight your best assets or, alternatively, cast unflattering shadows. But what if you want to look good without the filter? We posed this question to Gregory Arlt, director of makeup artistry at MAC Cosmetics . He's the man behind Dita Von Teese 's perfectly sculpted pout and Gwen Stefani 's glowing skin, so surely he'd be able to give us tricks to master no-filter makeup at home, right? Of course he did! He's a beauty exorcist , after all.
