Makeup with the Best

Miss Newark USA Teen, Keyaura, had the opportunity to have a full on makeup tutorial with the one and only Nydia Figueroa.

Nydia started her journey with Makeup from being inspired by a book title Plastic Surgery without the Surgery: The miracle of Makeup Techniques. She would go to the Limited Too Store (who remembers how cool limited too was!) buy all of the makeup and practice at home. Nydia instantly became attracted to the power of makeup! She started working with MAC at the age of 18, and the rest is herstory!

This tutorial is for teens and miss contestants. A natural look for a pageant. Nydia gives you step by step instructions from perfecting your eyebrows, to choosing the right lip color.

It takes practice to perfect your makeup, just like anything else. Here we have Miss Newark USA Teen, Keyaura, and Nydia setting up the eyebrowns.

"Your eyebrows are sisters, not twins." ~ Nydia Figueroa

Nydia uses a range of products to highlight Keyaura's face. Here she is using Stilla Glitter Eye Shadow.

This #stilla product is great for a natural glam look! Perfect for the stage or red carpet event. Nydia really enhances the look of Keyaura's eyes with this look.

It's time for some lashes!!! Who doesn't love a good lash? Nydia is using a lash applicator from #tarte, for adhesive she uses #laflare bond eyelash glue.

The eyelashes went on so smooth! Nydia did wait about 10 minutes for the glue to settle on the eyelashes before applying. She snapped the lashes to Keyaura's eyes, cut them, and applied the glue. Are you taking notes? We hope so! It gets better.

As Nydia gets ready to do Keyaura's foundation, she uses #JaneIredale Primer. This primer is for oily skin.

Getting ready for Keyaura's foundation, Nydia mixed two colors. She uses #MAC products for foundation and an IT Cosmetic flair brush to apply the foundation.

Make sure to clean your brushes every day!

If you apply makeup everyday, then your brushes need to be washed after every use. This is to protect your skin from any kind of bacteria.

We are half way there! The process gets even better from here! Time to highlight and contour.

After applying the foundation it's time for concealer. Another #MAC product. Nydia covers Keyaura's under eye area, from her nose all the way out to her cheek bone.

You have to let the foundation and concealer set, use a fan! Don't wave your hands in front of your face. The fan sets the makeup better! (Get the fan)

Setting power Nydia uses a product from #HudaBeauty

To bring the full look together, Nydia works her magic and applies amazing products from #urbandecay eye pencil, followed with a liquid liner from #lancome, a #fentybeauty lip gloss Fussy Fenty, and lip stain from #MAC

The end result!! A natural Glam look! Nydia is an incredible makeup artist she really knows the artistry of makeup! Makeup makes women feel empowered, strong, and confident!
