8 Things You Should Never Ever Say to Your Wedding Makeup Artist

10 Tips From Celeb Makeup Artist Robert Jones

Earlier, I told you that I really enjoyed makeup artist Robert Jones's new book, Looking Younger.

Chock full of application techniques and aha-moment tips, I thought I'd share some of my favorites right from the book. Oh, and lucky us, Robert even provided some quotes just for Bella readers (check out number two and three):

  1. Don't follow brow trends. Embrace the natural shape of your brow.
  2. "It is true, the sun is your enemy, but you can still enjoy it," Jones says. "Sunblock is a must — at least SPF 30."
  3. "Exfoliating at least three times a week will keep your skin constantly regenerating and looking its most youthful," Jones adds.
  4. If you are trying to decide between foundation shades, pick the darker one. Lighter shades can be aging.
  5. Use a bronzer every day. Going without it is like running around naked, Jones says. For a more natural look, he recommends choosing one that's just one to two shades darker than your skin tone.

To see the rest of Robert's advice,


  1. If your lipstick changes color, apply an opposite shade to neutralize the unwanted tone. For instance, if your lipstick is turning too pink, apply an orangey color. If it's too orange, go for a pinkish shade.
  2. Since foundation is well, the foundation of your look, treat yourself to the best one you can afford.
  3. If you have combination skin that's both oily and dry, don't be afraid to use separate foundations — one for the oily parts and one for the dry parts.
  4. To avoid clumps, apply two thin coats of mascara to your lashes.
  5. Always prep your face for makeup with a generous application of eye cream. You can never overdo the eye cream, and your concealer will blend much better, reducing the appearance of lines.
