Just read this tip on another thread but it deserves it's very own threadgrin

Google Wayne Goss make up artist, he's my new crush and tells you to moisturise, prime, powder THEN foundation!shock

Just tried it and it works a treat , didn't even need concealer! Makes perfect sense as it fills pores and I'd a key for the foundation!

You can use mineral foundation too and then liquid foundation.

He also does a video about a tip for eye liner that's worth watching.

I've just been flicking through his videos "ooh that looks good, oh let's watch this one" grin
The cats eye tip is great, I have a bent eyeliner brush and can just lie it on the lash line now

He's so funny,I loved it when he said 'I know people want the natural look but you've spent loads you bloody want to look like you're wearing it!'grin

Too right grin
I'm a makeup junkie though

Ooh I think that was me preens
My friend does it, she always looks amazing, like she has been air brushed. I can never do it right, I think I need more practise

I'm stunned it works, but it just does. I've just been for a walk and it still looks perfect and not at all shiny.

What's the eye liner trick? The one I saw he put liner onto an eye lash curler then as you squeezed it was left on the lid-geniusgrin

Isn't it sticky?!

I v rarely wear make up but my GM told me about powder first about 30 years ago!

Flicked liner

I watched the video earlier this week but can't quite bring myself to do it as powder feels so suffocating to my skin without foundation.

It is intriguing though (although I thought that about the conditioner before shampoo thing and that did not work for me at all)

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Thu 05-Jun-14 20:05:31

Your GM was years ahead of herself!smile

Not sticky at all, it just glides on. Looks tons better than doing it the traditional way.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Thu 05-Jun-14 20:21:32

Going to try the eye liner flick...

IdrisElbaIsMyHusband Thu 05-Jun-14 20:25:15

TheresLotsOfFarmyardAnimals Thu 05-Jun-14 20:29:36

I actually so powder, liquid, powder, liquid, powder for a night out. Like lasagna.

GingerRodgers Thu 05-Jun-14 21:04:33

DameD, I need the link to that vid please!!
Also, what's the thread you saw this on?!
Thank you!

HeyBungalowBill Thu 05-Jun-14 21:09:50

Why does it matter if the powder is compressed or not anyone? smile

I only have compressed and really want to try this tomorrow!!

ThisBitchIsResting Thu 05-Jun-14 21:10:57

grin at lasagna!

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Thu 05-Jun-14 21:17:13

I used pressed powder with big Kabuki brush, it was fine!

Will try lasagne face tomorrowgrin

I can't do links-I'm on my phone and it doesn't give me the option. Just google Wayne Goss and loads of you tube clips come up.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Thu 05-Jun-14 21:17:50

The thread is called 'foundation.'

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Thu 05-Jun-14 21:19:15

Sorry it's called 'foundation help please'

HeyBungalowBill Thu 05-Jun-14 21:24:30

Ooh good I'll try this tomorrow!
Not sure how good my brushes are but we will see smile

Whereisegg Thu 05-Jun-14 21:32:56

Well this is intriguing, I'm going to try this tomorrow!

Nells77 Thu 05-Jun-14 21:35:00

Can anyone recommend a cheap loose powder? I've only got a bare minerals pressed one and he says loose! Im so desperate to try it grin

GingerRodgers Thu 05-Jun-14 21:40:52

Thank you!! Think I found it.
Off to look at powder foundations. Think lily lolo does reasonably priced ones?
Love his tip of matching colour to chest- I'd never thought of that!

Also, anyone seen his tip about red dye in the tan?!

Ilovemydogandmydoglovesme Thu 05-Jun-14 21:46:22

Quite interesting. Didn't need to describe his obsession with makeup as 'special needs' though. hmm
