Powder foundation, good or bad?
Powder foundation is good; it's nice on top of a sheer tinted moisturizer for extra coverage if needed, or to warm up the skin tone. It can provide extra SPF protection too.
Do what comes instinctively! Blend well and use colors that work for you. Maintain a good eyebrow and take care of your skin!!
In Conversation with Tina Turnbow...
What inspired you to become a makeup artist?
Playing around with it as a kid and seeing what a great way it was to be creative by using the face as a canvas. It helped me feel more confident. I used to watch my mom apply her makeup and I saw her as a great beauty, so that was also an inspiration.
