2 Easy Ways to Achieve Instant Makeup Perfection

Mark celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh has a way of making every face she touches look absolutely flawless. Take the ombré-eyed makeup palette she came up with for Rebecca Minkoff's Fall 2012 show, or the luminous looks she often creates for Ashley Greene (the beauty brand's spokesperson). But how does Quynh do it? Check out the secrets behind her professional techniques when you read more.

Less is more: "Wearing too much makeup can look hard in reality," Quynh says. The solution? Use creams and liquids for a softer finish, and be sure to take the time to blend and layer well, allowing makeup to sink into the skin. "I love applying foundation with a brush and then going over it with a damp sponge," she advises. "It helps with the blending process."

Get out of that rut: "I think most women have rules, like not being able to wear certain products, textures, or colors," Quynh explains. The solution? Have an open mind when it comes to makeup. "Trying new colors/products is so fun, and if you don't like something, you can just take it off!"
