When it comes to a simple makeup look here are my makeup essentials for dark skintones. For me its all about amazing skin with a beautiful highlight and a pretty eye. Once you have good skin everything else falls into place. Of course make sure skin has been prepped I like to use primers like the Ren Perfect Canvas or the Mac Prep and Prime Radiance Natural Radiance. Keep makeup simple and invest in a good foundation and concealer. For me with dark skintones concealer is everything as it helps correct skin, brighten up under the eyes and just give that flawless finish.
When it comes to photo shoots I like to keep it simple with the skin products that I know really work. For this shoot for Truworths I used my photo shoot gorgeous skin trio that really works for me. You can add in a skin illuminator as well to add more glow if you want. I try keep my pro kit as compact as I can especially when I have to do hair as well and have a few bags to carry around. Over the last 9 years of doing makeup I have actually changed up products I use. I have narrowed it down to what works on photo shoots to create a good picture. Plus skin needs to look really good. The trio I used here is the Mac Prep and Prime Natural Radiance, Mac Face and Body Foundation and Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer.
In my shoot for MRP its was all about fresh gorgeous glowing skin. Its a trend that is with us every season but just the products change around. I am forever changing up my foundations depending on what I want to achieve and each season I have a favourite foundation I just keep reaching for. We are always trying to achieve glowing skin and a light foundation expecially in the hot summer months. I try an achieve a dewy look without the model looking to sweaty but just really healthy.
Sadly the Queens Plate has come and gone it was too much fun and can't wait till next year. For those of you who dfon't what the event is its a horse racing event where the theme is blue and white. I got a gorgeous dress from Zara a couple months ago as it was perfect for the event and I themed my accessories with the dress so blue all the way thanks to Kaika Jewellery and the amazing Ashiana brand.
Its been a while since I have used the Mac Face and Body foundation but its one that I have found I am reaching for over this hot weather. There is nothing worse than foundation feeling heavy on my skin and this week with temperatures up to 37 degrees I want my makeup to be really light.
