Paint the Lines Away

Soften Fine Lines, Lip Lines & Marionette Lines with Vicki’s Angel

Whether it was in front of the camera, or everyday wear, for years, I have utilized a technique that helps softens fine lines and adds dimension to the face. It has always been one of my indispensable makeup tricks. I was delighted to find another guru, Vicki Fischer, who actually put a name to this simple, effective technique… Vicki’s Angel.

As a makeup artist Vicki Fischer’s highlighting technique reminded her of an angel. She thought “makeup application should be fun, so she started telling her clients that she was “lightening their face with a kiss from an angel” thus “Vicki’s Angel” came to be.

In order to give your face a “heavenly luminescence”. Vicki’s Angel both softens and lightens your appearance at the same time; helping to create the illusion of smoother skin. Tiny lip, frown and marionette lines all respond well to this technique. The Angel adds softness and dimension.

It is a fun and easy way to remember a very important part of the makeup process. You will actually require less makeup by drawing an angel on your own face and it will extend the life of your makeup.

Step 1: Paint on your Angel

Use a concealer color one shade lighter than your foundation. Apply with a small camouflage brush, eyeliner brush, or The Everything Pencil. Hold the skin taut and fill in the lines with the tip of your pencil or brush. Be sure to press firmly into the lines as the concealer works like a filler. Think of it as putty.

Step 2: Blend

Take your middle finger and press in the concealer then feather out until it’s barely there. You will find that your fingers are great tools for blending your Angel.

Step 3: Foundation

Carefully apply a thin layer of foundation over your entire face. Make sure you do not erase your angel. Let the illumination shine through.

Step 4: Powder

Apply loose translucent powder to set your makeup and eliminate shine using powder brush or puff. You will see how your angel lifts, lightens, and softens the lines on your face.

Make your own Vicki’s Angel
