Make-Up Artist Dominique Noëlle Shows us how to transition our skin for the change of seasons.
Born in New York City to Jamaican parents, Dominique Noëlle spent most of her early life splitting time between the Caribbean, New York, and England. Always living among three cultures she found beauty in each.
Graduating from Baruch College with a B.A. in History & Political Science, Dominique spent the next six years of her career in Retail Planning working for NYC retail giants Century 21 Department Stores and The Children’s Place, while dabbling in make-up on the side.
After the birth of her second child, she realized the best thing she could do for her growing family was focus on her skill in make-up artistry. So, she took a leap and transitioned to make-up full time. Enhancing her education by taking courses and workshops at Artist Makeup Academy, New York Makeup Academy, Danessa Myricks University and many others, helped to prepare her for this career shift. With recognition coming from winning New York Magazine‘s The Cut’s Face Race in 2017, working at both NYFW and Miami Swim Week, and with brands and designers from all over the country, Dominique’s focus is to continue to bring her artistry worldwide.
This fall season, Dominique shares some great beauty tips with us that can help us transition from the hot, warm summer weather to the cold, drying effects of winter. Just as the fall season is a time of change with children heading back to school, teens going off to college, wardrobes switching over to sweaters, boots and jeans, and the foliage turning vibrant shades of autumnal colors, it’s also a time for us to re-evaluate our skin care regimen and try some new trends.
Dominique’s shares some specific tips for women of color and shows us how women of all ages can continue to look our best.
In this segment, we focus on skin care preparation prior to putting on any make-up. If done properly, you can literally head right out the door looking fresh faced and glowing. One of Dominique’s top tips is to make sure the skin is hydrated properly. Take a bit of time to go through the below steps and give your skin a bit of self-love.
Five basic steps to prepping your skin properly should include in this order:
The rule of thumb is to layer on these products in order of thinnest to thickest. The final, thickest layer helps to create a lasting barrier to keep moisture in.
After this, Dominique is ready to go in and do a bit of color correcting and eyebrow defining to finish up that summer fresh look that we want to keep with us year round.
In just 15 minutes, you should be ready to get up and glow right out the door!
