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. 

NEED HYDRATION!!!

Recently I have noticed that my skin seams to be a bit dehydrated. Lack of water, quick life style, little toddler at home, pollution and many more makes my skin a bit dry. I am getting older as well and the age change the condition of the skin. All the dryness can be caused by to much of the sun or winter air. 
Just to let you know that when the skin is dry it is not a good sign. When it’s oily it doesn’t help us as well. The best of course is the normal skin but only small percentage of us is lucky enough to have one. It’s really rare to have a normal skin especially with the environment and pollution. Dirty air, chemicals, sun, not healthy life style, toxic food… all of this effect badly our skin. For most of us the first sign of unhealthy skin is dullness, lack of glow and dryness.
But please do not worry, we can still fix it. It will not be pernament if you start slowly repair your problem. I am not saying we will stop ageing but at least we can start to prevent ageing process.  If you leave it for later then belive me you are in trouble!

I know that you will tell me that condition of the skin depends on genes. Yes! Partly it is true! But it also depends on the way how we take care of our skin. If in your family are good genes then the visible ageing process will appear later. It doesn’t mean that you are not getting older. I would say that it is always better to prevent instead of being 40 and think about plastic surgery  which will cost you much more money than the skin care products  and it’s painful as well.

I know also that all of us has different skin type. Some has dry or oily or combination skin. That is why I would love to introduce you to a lovely product which you can use by itself or mix it with other products and works out on all skin types.
The renewal oil from La Mer is just amazing for all of us. It has miracle broth and sunflower oil which helps to moisturising our skin. Just to let you know that this is a dry oil so it is not greasy and you can use it even under the make up.
If you have a sensitive skin do not worry as well it is definitely the right product for you. It provides deep nourish without being heavy and like I said earlier it’s suitable for all skin types.
Yes! It is an expensive product! But because it’s an oil you use only small amount of it. 2 to 3 drops it’s perfectly fine for your face. It helps a lot. Remember that if you do not want to use it for the day you can always add it to your night time skin care regime. That way your skin rests and takes the most what we will give her.

So if you would like to stop having a dry skin start to use something. I highly recommend this product because my skin is also sensitive and it made it looking really good. 

SUMMER TIME… BRONZER TIME…


Summer time is definitely here. Everyone can say so. Even if it’s the end of August we are in the middle of really high temperatures.  It is a lovely hotel weather with the sun out.  Some of us are on holidays in even hotter countries but some of us do not have time or just can not afford to go abroad.  In that case we are staying pale, our skin do not have any glow, we do not have any colours on it. We look in the mirror and we think how to bring a sun kissed effect to our face? What to do to give the skin a bit of brown colour?
You need a bronzer! A good bronzer which helps with all above questions.
Recently I have noticed a lovely summer edition of bronzer from La Mer. Lovely, luxury packiging and lovely colour.
You just need to know how to use it to make it look as natural as possible.
The easiest way to apply bronzer on your face is an idea of the number 3 on you. The picture next to the La Mer bronzer shows the quickest way possible to apply it. You just need to do number 3 starting from your temples and drawing the number 3 of your bronzer on your cheek and going to jaw line.
Later you repeat it on the other side but you drawing  it like letter E.
For the beginner this is the easiest and the quickest way to do that. Remember not to overdo it with bronzer. Use small amount because you can always build it up.
I love bronzer! It brings a bit of colours to my face. Makes me look healthy and tanned.
You can also use it as a blush on your cheeks. Mostly I advice to use bronzer as a blush for someone who has a rosy cheeks. Yellow undertone of the bronzer calming down the redness on the face.
You just need to try and you will definitely see a big difference on your skin. Winter time is also a good time to use bronzer. Make us feel and look much much better. 

DO YOU NEED A GLOW IN YOUR LIFE???

Of course all of us need a glow, radiance and sparkles not only in our life but also on our face. Glow and radiance these are two things what bring healthy look to our faces.
We feel better when our face is smooth and nice.
Strobing is the new contouring which helps to achieve that look. Strobing is a more professional name for highlighting.
In our summer collection I would love to show you my favourite highlighters which impressed me this year.
First one is LA MER highlighter which is very luxury and smooth. Looks lovely and is nice and shiny. Brings lots of sparkles to your face. Plus the packaging is just in normal. Very silver, classy and very luxury.
Another one is a beautiful summer edition from Laura Mercier. Four colours which are suitable for different skin tones so that means we can not go wrong with the variety of the shades. We have devotion, seduction, indiscretion and addiction. You can choose one or two, more pink or gold. It is really up to you.
Probably by now you are thinking how should I use it???
That is a very good question!!!
You should use it on the cheek bones, as a triangle on the forehead, top of the nose and chin. Under the post you can see the picture how to apply highlighter on your face. It is the easiest way to do that.
You can also use it as your eyeshadows to brights up the area under your eyebrows.
Remember there is no rules with the make up. You can have fun and play with all the things. You can even introduce to the word something new.
Enjoy your play!
