And because we know that tickets for the event were completely sold out, we took note of all his top tips from our seats to share them with you guys. Read through them below!
1. For a cat-eye effect, blend eyeshadow inwards.
Eyeshadow shouldn't go too far beyond the wing of your eyeliner (use the tail of your eyebrow for reference) if you want lifted eyes. You need to concentrate all color on the eyelid, crease, and very little on the browbone, so be careful when blending!
2. Don't use highlighter at the center of your forehead.
You can do so with a lighter concealer, but not with actual highlighters. "It will make you look oily. Trust me," says Bretman. And we don't need to be told twice. But he does recommend highlighting your temple, the bridge of the nose, the cupid's bow, and of course the cheeks.
3. Make a triangular shape with your undereye concealer.
Doing it this way does two things. First, it covers the entire undereye area with product to conceal effectively. Second, it highlights the whole center of the face instead of only the eyes.
4. Clean up your contour with a lighter powder.
If you've over-blended your contour, don't fret because that lost definition can still be saved. Bretman likes to dip a damp sponge into a light loose powder to resculpt the face!
5. Draw your eyebrows in the direction of the hair growth.
This technique will make every stroke look like it's a real part of your eyebrow, especially if you're filling in a very sparse area. Don't stress if you make a mistake, because some well-placed concealer can clean that up for you!
