So,last week was a very exciting one for me and a lot of makeup artist here in Lagos…….. why, you might ask ? well the legendary Sam Fine came visiting .He was in Nigeria as a facilitator for GTB Fashion weekend, to say the class was filled up is trying to be modest, it was pilling over. He had everyone glued watching him do his thing in real life, flesh and blood, such a bundle of talent that one man.
If you are a makeup artist and don’t know Same fine , you better ask somebody and yes you owe me makeup points for not knowing 🙂 .I was unable to attend the GTbank fashion weekend Masterclass but was all in for the class organized by MAC Cosmetics Nigeria courtesy Bobbi Taylor Company- great job guys!

Sam shared some of his valued makeup tips, tricks and techniques with guests read below,he also gave a free autographed copy his DVD.
Here are a few tricks from Sam fine.
Bleached brows – Aurburn brown or warmed tone lip pencil and not dark brown
Use concealers to cover eye bags ,using your finger to smooth and warm it under eyes
Add gloss to the lips a bit when using matte lipstick to avoid it looking cracked and divided
Cream formulae can be blotted after you have dabbed into the skin, He loves cream foundation for the finish it gives and works with them rather than liquid foundation
Contour with cream using makeup sharp corner makeup sponges/wedges, blend in your high lights with then actual colour of the skin, blend nose contour with exact shade just outside the nose
You can add a little bit of black gel to foundation to create dimension around the fore head and jawline
To cover fine line , place loose powder the eye ( and he doesnt bake) whisk away with a set of pressed powder and blend with a brush
Use a dark bronzer and powder to create dimension ( contour) around the cheek and forehead
Its okay to use peach and orange blush
Smoke the bottom lashes using a tight angle brush to get a more defined /soft eyes finish
Use lighter natural eye shadow to highlight beneath the brow and not concealers
