Five Easy Makeup Tips From YSL's Dell Ashley

Five Easy Makeup Tips From YSL's Dell Ashley

A few weeks ago, I met up with Yves St. Laurent's national makeup artist, Dell Ashley, at Saks Fifth Avenue in San Francisco. While we talked weddings and flattering makeup shades, I also picked up a few good-to-know tips along the way.

  • Melt-proof: For warmer weather, focus on melt-proof makeup. Ashley recommends Yves Saint Laurent Water-Resistant Eyeshadow ($28.50), particularly if you're spending a day at the beach and want to look great.
  • Bronzed body: If your face is looking darker than your body, even out your neck and décolleté with YSL's limited-edition Collector Sun Powder ($72). For a bargain, swirl E.L.F. Kabuki Body Brush ($8) into your regular bronzer for a similar effect.
  • Makeup's not a coverup: The best makeup doesn't cover up your flaws as much as it enhances your features. "You want someone to say you look beautiful, not the makeup," said Ashley.
  • No rules: "Throw all the rules out the window," said Ashley. "Wearing makeup and being beautiful in makeup is about feeling good about how you look."
  • Warms with cools: "Too much of a warm color or too much of a cool color can look a little bland," he advised. For a look with interest and depth, Ashley recommends wearing a warm eye with a cool lip.
