Using Your Pinky Finger in Makeup Applications 2010-02-02 06:00:00

Here's a Great Tip . . . I Pinky Swear

You might know that the ring finger is the perfect digit to use when patting on concealer, as it creates the gentlest amount of pressure for the delicate under-eye area. But that's not the only finger that can prove to be handy when it comes to applying makeup. Last year, I spoke to YSL makeup artist Dell Ashley, and he offered up a simple suggestion that uses another finger. "If you anchor your hand with your pinky on your cheek, it steadies the hand, and lifts range of motion that you have," he told me. Try it the next time you pick up a makeup brush. It works!
