HALLOWEEN

We are in October time, the time when it’s closer to Christmas but not too close and the time when is definitely closer to Halloween. Even the weather changed. The leafs on the trees changed the colors from green to red, yellow, brown and orange. That means that autumn is here. For me that means – Halloween makeup.
Ohhhh yes!!! With this kind of make up you can go completely crazy especially if you have a knowledge in special effects in make up. Unfortunately I will not go so far with it. For me is more Halloween – glamour make up.
Halloween is a very dark and scary time in the year. But it is also pumpkin time. Making funny faces from it and making a pumpkin soup.
But let’s not go too far and just stay with the makeup. The Halloween makeup is very characteristic because of the very dark eyes, spiders web, blood, sculls and scary faces. You can use contact lenses to make the make up looking more real, eyelashes are crazy popular during this time of the year as well.
I think it is a very interesting makeup style which we supposed to try at least once in our life.
Here is only small example of the Halloween makeup. It is kind of vampire style with smokey black eyes and red shadows around the black. More glamour than scary but still good for Halloween. If you would like to make it even more scary and terrifying you can add black lips instead of bloody red.
Enjoy this year Halloween Party, because you can be whoever you would like to be. <3<3<3

DEFINITELY LOVE MY GYM CLASSES BECAUSE GETTING OUT OF THERE I AM MORE WET THAN GETTING OUT FROM SWEAMMING POOL…

My normal regime at the gym is 2 times a week. I do not know how to use the machine, I just don’t know how to exercise. I haven’t done it for ages so my body is a bit sleepy and also when I look at this machines I really do not know where is front and back. Most of you probably laughing right now but maybe some day I will know what to do.
At the moment I am just going for the classes. So dance, fitness, aerobic, jumping, kicking and punching.
Last time I had a classes from Pure Combat and at some point I thought I am gonna vomit! Quick music something similar to techno. The trainer – OMG – she must have worked in some kind of army!!! She gave me a hard time. Everything was quick, everything looked like we are boxing, kicking and fighting. After half an hour I was more than sure that I would leave. But I stayed and I didn’t regret it. My whole body was aching after that for the next few days. I was suffering and in pain but it was really good. Definitely will do it again…

LIKE A MOVIE STAR MAKEUP

 

That was amazing experience and I would say an amazing make up. I really did it from the bottom of my heart. Loved every single moment with this lady. She was so lovely.

I think she looks like a movie star.
Let’s just start from the beginning. Classic, glamour make up is one of the easiest (for me) soft eyes, beautiful black eyeliner, glowy face and hot red lips.
At the beginning remember to cleans the face and use moisturiser. Then I always do the eyes first because as a artist soul I can be sometimes messy. I use Surratt concealer number 3 as a base and then I use Laura Mercier dusk eyeshadow and Chantacaille almond eyeshadow. Quick and easy. As a darker shade on the eage of the eyes I used Laura Mercier celestial eyeshadow.
The next step eyeliner. Perfect eyeliner! If you want it to be perfect use dark eyeshadows first to draw the line and then proper liquid eyeliner on top of the eyeshadow line. Then you will be sure that is perfect and you will not make any mistakes. I know that eyeliner is not the easiest one but practice makes perfect and on the end of the day the more you practice the better results you will achieve.
The next step was mascara. In this case my first choice was Chantacaille supreme clis because it makes lashes long and thick. This lovely product contains also serum which helps to grow lashes and it’s waterproof as well. So if you have a night out you should use it.
The face was very easy to do because the lady didn’t have any imperfections at all. I use secret camouflage concealer nb 3 from Laura Mercier to cover little shadows under the eyes and a bit of redness around the nose and then I applied La Prairie foundation nb 200.
We did some counturing and highlighting on her face to brings the cheek bones out and make the skin more glowy and fresher. I love blush so I also appied it on the lady’s apple cheek.
I finished of her eyebrow with eyeko brow powder and I use secret brightening powder under the eyes to brights up and set up the concealer and then translucent powder from Laura Mercier to set up the whole make up.
The last step was beautiful red lipstick. Always use a lip liner around the lips and then apply lipstick especially for the red colours. The lip liner stops lipstick from bleeding around the lips and also if you use it all over the lips underneath the lipstick it makes the lips look better with longer effect of the proper red.
The best words from the lady on the end “you made me look so glamour that I can not stop looking at myself, thank you” 

SNAPCHAT HIT ME AS WELL

Probably most of you know what snapchat is. It is rather funny aplication to take funny pictures. You can be a frog, doggy, pirate or butterfly princess. You also can have a good laugh with your friends while taking pictures.

The snapchat hit me as well. I downloaded it and started a little play. I am not going to spend hours using the aplication but definitely I am going to enjoy using it.
This is one of my first pictures from Snapchat. We need a bit of fun in our life so I become a butterfly princess for just one camera shot.

I HOPE YOU KNOW THAT IT IS NOT SO EASY TO BE A HAIRDRESSER…

Few weeks ago I had a lovely pleasure to be a little experimental rabbit for one of the juniors at my work place. He asked me to do blow dry my hair because he needed to practice. Well I agreed, why not? I thought. He washed my hair first and he added some treatment on it. Which was lovely. What can I say, it was nice moment when I do not have to do anything. Unfortunately I do not get often that kind of moments… 

But let’s come back to the topic! So after wash and conditioning and treatment I was sitting on the chair looking in the mirror and waiting what this lovely junior is going to do with my hair. He brushed my hair with tangle teezers brush and then his teacher came to explain him how to share hair to the different parts to make it easier to blow dry. OK I thought it is not difficult easy peasy. But after a moment I noticed it is not so easy anymore. Especially because of my hair which is very soft and smooth and after wash it’s going everywhere where shouldn’t really go…
I wish you good luck my friend I thought.  But keep moving! He took a brush and hair dryer and started the blow dry. First of all he was to harsh but after telling him about it he was gentle. For a moment I was afraid that he will tear most of my hair. But lucky me I was OK.  Later I could hear teachers words:
“You need to pull the hair up”
” you need to make it higher”
“Rember to hold it nice and gentle”
” use bigger brush”
“Yes that’s good”
So after that I realised that the hairdressers job it is not easy at all. They need strength in their hands like a superhero. They need to pay more attention to not to burn the clients hair. They need patient. They need to have some imagination how to mange the hair.
For someone who never done blow dry in his life it looks easy.  That happened to me. Sometimes when I look at the hairdressers I think it’s easy. Looks easy! But it is not easy at all! They have so much practice and experience that for us people it doesn’t look  complicated at all.
So after 45 minutes blow dry my hair I was sitting with the rollers all over my head. Lovely look almost like an unidentified flying object. Hmmm great I thought… everyone loves me now! Looked strange. Lucky me that I was sitting somewhere in the corner when no one could see me. Had to stay like that until the rollers cool down. My junior hairdresser spray some hair spray on me and started to remove the rollers. Final effect was lovely. I did like it. My hair was smoother and had a bit of wave on the end. Also more volume which I really needed.
People who never worked with the hairdressers don’t know that it is a hard job. It is not easy to mange the hair. It’s not easy to give them more volume. It’s not easy to make them curly and definitely it is not easy to take a hair dryer and a brush and blow dry hair with the arms and hands up!
So next time when you have hairdresser appointment please respect them, be nice and remember they do everything for you to make you feel better because better hair day definitely help us to be in the better mood. 

HOW TO DO QUICK MAKE UP???

Yesterday I had a pleasure to do make up for a lady on her birthday day. She was going for a party with the closest family and friends. She had a beautiful eyes and skin and I couldn’t stop myself to ask her to take a picture on the end for my blog. Luckily she agreed 🙂 

We had only 30 mins to do the full make up and smoky eyes. I quickly refreshed her face with Marrocan cleansing milk and then rose water from Chantacaille. Then I use La Mer renewal oil because her skin was dehydrated and on top of that I used moisturising cream from La Mer.
Not heaving much time I quickly picked up minimum of the products which I was going to use on her. I have started the make up from the eyes. It is better when you have to do smoky eyes then you know that if some eyeshadows drop on the cheek you can clean it without touching the foundation. Her eyes had dark shadows so I used orange concealer from Cover Fx because as you probably know orange colour corrective concealer reduce darkness on the face, not only around the eyes. And then on top of that I used the creamy concealer from Cover Fx G Light to make her colours looking the same. The next step were eyeshadows. To brights up her eye lid I used Dusk eyeshadow from Laura Mercier as a base and then Bamboo on the half of the eye lid follow by Noir Laura Mercier as a smoky finish. It looked really nice on her. I finish it off with the Chantacaille Le Stylo Ultra Slim Liquid  Eyeliner.
Then it was the face time. I started from a bit of experimental point by mixing Surrat foundation with Chantacaille Liquid Lumiere Brilliance so the foundation got glow and radiance bust. Then we used a bit of Laura Mercier blush which is called Lush Nectarine and finish it off with Chantacaille light loose powder.
The last thing to do was the ladies lips. We decided to make them natural because she had strong eyes so I used Chantacaille Nuance lip liner and lip chic Primrose. Very beautiful colours.
That was a really quick full make up. Lovely for evening dinner or just meeting up with friends.
