Cassandra has worked in the beauty and cosmetic industries for over 15 years, as a model, makeup artist, and makeup company founder.

 

Use a concealer that will moisturize, no matter what skin type you have. Makeup artist Cassandra McClure says: "The skin under your eyes is really delicate and needs to be moisturized, so it's best to use a cream or a liquid concealer. Avoid using matte powders or other drying concealers under your eyes, because the skin could start to look crepey. You can also use a touch-up concealer pen a few shades lighter than your natural skin tone to brighten the area if you have dark circles."


How to Apply Mineral Foundation

Better preparation leads to a smoother finish. Makeup artist Cassandra McClure says: "No matter what type of foundation you're wearing, you need to cleanse, tone, exfoliate, and moisturize your skin. With mineral makeup, that will ensure that the powder can sit smoothly on the surface of your skin, instead of just on top of dead skin cells."

Avoid waxing your eyebrows too often. "Plucking is better for your skin than waxing. When you wax, over time, your skin loses elasticity, which can eventually lead to sagging skin and drooping eyelids. However, if you have a lot of hair, you can get laser hair removal to remove the hair permanently. You can also visit a salon for threading if you only have a little hair. Threading doesn't pull as much as waxing does, so it causes less damage."

Try warming up your eyelash curler first. Makeup artist Cassandra McClure recommends: "To warm your eyelash curler, you can either just put it between your hands for a minute, or you can heat it with your blowdryer for a few seconds. You can even find heated eyelash curlers that warm up in just a few seconds."

What does primer do for your skin? Cassandra Mcclure, makeup artist and beauty expert, explains: "Primer gets your skin smooth by filling in any fine lines and pores, and it helps to lock on your foundation when you apply it. However, you may not need it at all, especially if you're using a high-performing foundation."

"To keep your makeup from looking cakey, start with a clean face, clean makeup brushes, and a finely-milled, high quality powder." says Cassandra McClure

"If you want to create a really natural, dewy look, skip the powder, then dab lip stain onto your cheeks and blend it in." says Cassandra McClure

From Makeup Artist To Podcaster To Product Creator: Cassandra McClure Launches Lash Binder Tool

Celebrity makeup artist, Beautycounter educator and Clean Beauty Podcast host Cassandra McClure set out to make great-looking false lashes achievable on an at-home budget with the launch of Lash Binder. The $29.99 patent-pending lash application tool is the result of years of frustration on the part of McClure as well as her clients and friends who lamented their inability to put on false lashes sans professional help.

“I had issues with applying lashes for a long time,” says McClure. “I brought the issue up at a workshop. Someone there told me, ‘You should develop this tool.’ Nine months ago, I did and handed it out to my makeup artist friends. I didn’t have to give them instructions. They all just picked it up. It’s a simple, straightforward tool. Once I started getting the feedback, I knew I had something….”

Clean Beauty Is Cassandra McClure

Foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, moisturizer, facial wash, primer, setting spray, and the list goes on. Women, including myself, put piles of none clean beauty products on our face, body, and hair daily. However when we break out, we put on more concealer; when we get red bumps, we put on more foundation; when we get itchy skin, we find a new lotion. However, more and more women and men are starting to realize, that red bumps, breakouts, itchy skin, and redness, are not “normal” things your body goes through. It is caused by the piles of chemicals we put on daily.

At ALT Summit in Palm Springs, I sat down with Cassandra McClure to discuss clean beauty. McClure hosts a podcast, called “Clean Beauty”. Before her podcast, she was a model and now is a celebrity makeup artist specializing in clean beauty. She saw first hand what the beauty industry cares about, and that is money.

By the pool at the Saguaro, McClure talked about her journey into cleaner and more sustainable makeup....
