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

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” 

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. 

GRADUATION MAKE UP 

Few weeks ago I had a great pleasure to do a make up on a very nice lady who just had her graduation. The make up had to be quiet simple but at the same time visible. Not too much but also not too little.

The make up what I did on her is a bit like half smokey eyes and soft pink lips.

Starting from completion:
I cleaned the face and refreshed it with toner.
I used a moisturising cream to prepare the skin for the primer and foundation and used an eye cream as well.
Next step was an illuminating primer from Laura Mercier.
Then I started to apply La Prairie Anti-aiging foundation number 100.
Concealer from Surratt number 3 was a great base under the eyeshadows and under the eyes.
Next one was Bronzer 01 from Laura Mercier
And then blush in Barely Pink.
Devotion highlighter from Laura Mercier made a lovely glow on the lady skin.

The eyes were mostly done with Surratt eyeshadows. Love the tuxture and colours and the way how they blend. I applied truffle, ingenue, bruno noir, chamois and Surratt eyeliner plus Laura Marcier Faux lash mascara in black on her eyes.
I used secret brightening powder from Laura Mercier to set up Concealer and give a bit more brightness to the eyes.
For the eyebrow I used really lovely and easy products from eyeko which is called Brow boost.
I set up whole make up with translucent powder from  Laura Mercier.
To finish it off I used Rose lipstick from Laura Marcier which gave a lovely light pink on the lady’s lips.

The final effect was I think really good. Not too much, not too little as well. She looked just amazing and she felt good as well.

ADORABLE LOOK…

Sometimes we look in the mirror and we think that we would love to have better lashes…  Some of us has really thin lashes, others – short and others have very damage lashes.
What can we do to make our lashes look better and fuller?
There are few ways how to do it. We can use natural way or not so natural.

Coconut oil is just perfect for lashes to grow quicker and being thicker. Try to apply coconut oil on your lashes every evening before you go to bed and leave it for whole night.
Coconut oil in general is very healthy and organic product so it will always help with moisture and grow. But unfortunately we need to wait for result. Not one or two days… we need at least a month to see the results.
Quicker trick which you can use to make your lashes look fuller, longer and healthier is loose powder! Yes! That’s right! Loose powder can help to build up the mascara on your own lashes. You use mascara on your lashes and then you add a bit of powder on your lashes and then mascara again. You can add few layers of mascara and powder but remember to start and finish with the mascara. Also try to not over do it. It doesn’t look good if you apply to much.
These are two simple ways to make your own lashes stands out. But what if we do not want to use coconut oil because we needed full lashes like NOW??? What do we supposed to do if we dont want to apply mascara with powder?
Then we supposed to use fake lashes! I know that appying them is not the easiest way but practice makes perfect and I am pretty sure that as soon as we do it once we are going to use the fake lashes every day!
You can use stripe lashes or individual one but the single lashes are a bit more difficult to apply.
I am a big fun of the Glossy Make Up lashes. Love the names: Soho, Chelsea, Kensington, Knightsbridge, Mayfair, Urban Lashes, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Belgravia and Hyde Park. All of them look amazing. Magical eyelashes, very flexible and easy to apply. Some of them are very natural the others are more funky but you will definitely like all of them.
Remember, when applying lashes you need a good glue. Also be careful not to put glue into your eye. Use tweezers so that can help you to hold the lashes.
Mesure before applying because lashes can be to long for you so you can shorten them out with the scissors. It is nice to draw eyeliner so you have line where lashes should be allocated.
Remember also that the first time it’s not the easy time. You need to practice more to know how to do that. The most difficult is the first step, but if you do it once, the second time will be much easier.
So good luck with your lashes.
