In this glowing skin makeup tutorial I wanted to show how important skincare is when it comes to achieving a glowing complexion. Without a good skincare routine makeup will never look dewy so its key you exfoliate, apply masks and the rest. I chat about a great hydsrating masks, facial oils and basically layer up that skincare before I even get to the makeup part. This look is perfect for those of you who don't like to wear loads of makeup but want to look heathy. Its also a great look for day time as its super fresh and polished.
It seems I can never get enough of an eyeshadow palette. Everytime I buy one or get one from one of the PR companies its like Christmas has come early. I am totally loving the new Body Shop Down To Earth palettes that come in a whole variety of shades. I got my hands on this grey shadow palette in no 3 which is a combination of grey's. The best way for me to test out products is or on a shoot so that's what I did. I did a beauty portrait shoot with 5 gorgeous girls and for the palette I created a smokey eye on Janke.
This season its all about masculine suits for women with a touch of a feminine touch thrown in. If you are embracing the masculine trend then its important to add the makeup to have a little contrast with the clothes. In this Elle magazine fashion editorial I did the makeup but had both girls but giving them both a different look that should inspire you on how to wear your makeup id you decide to embrace this trend.
There are always certain items that I pack in my holiday makeup kit to enhance the tan or for a night out. Bold lips are always a must for me because they look even better with a tan and really pops making you look so healthy and fresh. My favourite combination is bronze eyes and a bright lip its a perfect way to combine an eye with a lip without taking away from the lips.
I am always in a rush trying to get out in the week for a quick dinner with the hubbie or friends so I am always looking for easy ways to apply makeup and products that just work some magic. I love a smokey eye but unless its a Friday or Saturday night where I can take my time at my vanity table I need one product to create the smokey. If you haven't gotten your hands on the Clarins Ombre matt cream to powder eyeshadow then this really is the business for a quick smokey eye.
I get asked all the time on how to make foundation last longer, or my foundation doesn't last all day what do I do? In my experience especially when its hot it will never have the same coverage that you have when you first apply but there are ways to extend your foundation life.
Being a makeup artist brings me great joy and for me its always so exciting to see the
