PeaceKeeper’s campaign, “Make-Up Artists For Peace” asked some of the countries leading celebrity make-up artists to donate their favorite make-up tip in support of PeaceKeeper’s work to end violence against women. Recently, we asked Sam Fine, celebrity make-up artist for women like Tyra Banks, Brandy, Aretha Franklin, Halle Berry, Alek Wek, Naomi Campbell, Destiny’s Child, and more. Here is what he suggests:

Use foundation to achieve a second skin appearance
After applying foundation (either liquid or cream), take a facial tissue and separate each layer. Using one layer, gently blot, removing any excess oil. What you're left with is skin that looks perfect without the mask-like appearance of foundation.

Use two foundation formulas – liquid and crème – to achieve a flawless complexion
Using liquid foundation and tinted moisturizer is great, but they don't have the ability to cover dark marks or heavy discoloration. Fine suggests using a stick foundation along with your existing foundation in select areas where more coverage is needed. Now you'll be able to hide blemishes without feeling like you're wearing a face full of foundation!

Build beautiful lashes
Begin by wiping the excess off the wand/brush and applying a thin coat of waterproof mascara. Go on to do something else - get dressed or make a cup of coffee. Because waterproof mascara dries quicker, when you return to apply your second coat, you'll notice each lash stands out and attracts mascara like never before!

Create the perfect brow

Fine suggests using two pencils to create the perfect brow; one in a shade lighter than the natural brow color and one a bit darker than the natural brow color. First, using the lighter pencil to softly define and fill, serving as a guideline for shape, then return with the darker pencil to deepen the color and define the shape. This helps to insure that you'll have a beautiful brow that doesn't look drawn on or fake.
