As a makeup artist people always asking me what is the best mascara to use ?
The make-up equivalent of your morning coffee, great mascaras have an ingenious way of making you look instantly more awake and refreshed especially when you don’t apply makeup and have no time for all that morning makeup routine.
How important is to find a easy and clump free mascara ,smudge free and not too heavy for your lushes.
Mascara bush is very important when you choose mascara for your lushes.
Powerful enough to defy the trends and the most popular of all make-up products, you need to find one you can really rely on.
With years of makeup for all my clients,editorials, beauty here is mascara that I think is the best easy to apply and for every pocket.
My favourite Mascaras:
Sisley mascara so intense
This is my favourite mascara of all.
All the goodness in their formulation suits this brush down to the ground and that’s clearly why they selected it in favour of something more traditional. One of it’s special talents is ‘grabbing’ the bottom lashes with no mess or fuss. Very impressive indeed. In typical fashion, the first time I put wand to lash, so transfixed was I by smooth gliding and coating action, I highly recommend.
Especially if you don’t have much lashes and you want to add volume and clump free.
With subtle results and even coverage, this is perfect for daytime.

Dior show blackout mascara :
Despite the dramatic sounding name, this is a really buildable formula that allows you to apply one coat for feathery but defined daytime lashes or three to four coats for a darker, more dramatic voluminous finish.
The full-fat brush is tapered at one end making it easy to define bottom lashes and smaller ones at the inner corners too for a wide-eyed finish.
I had a chance to be working and create a look for Wallis collection and their new monochrome designers look for this season.
Was many changes and makeup and hair for day time was more simple and natural and progresses bit stronger on the eyes and wavy soft hair for night time look.
My makeup on the model was fresh glowing skin and smokey black eyes.
No eyeshadow where apply on the sockets line. I just kept very clean and matte with translucent powder.
I kept the lips very nude and main focus was on the eyes more in between the lash line with black eye pencil follow by liner , but very bold without any side flicks. This look is very much more effective when is filmed in black and white.
Here is the video from the day.
Hope you like it.
Ready for your big day?
Wedding season is fast approaching and if you thinking about doing your own makeup for special occasion with the added pressure of been the bride then you want to be with knowledge ahead of your day.
Here are some makeup tips that you need to know.
BE SMOOTH :
Exfoliate ones or twice per week, especially near to your big day to ensure smooth skin for your big day. Dermalogica, Emma Hardie, SIsley, Body shop aloe gentle exfoliate my preference.
IGNORE THE TRENDS :
Go with a look that enhances your natural beauty rather then trend inspired.
Go for matte foundation on your wedding day (unless you have a very dry skin) that will prevent shine for the pictures.
Giorgio Armani-face fabric
Clarins- ever matte skin
Stila- oil free foundation
Mac -oil free foundation
Maybelline- Dream Matte mouse
Conceal the inner corners of your eyes then blend so it doesn’t look too heavy.
If you prefer natural look go for the lipstick that is a few shades darker then you natural lip colour.
Many lipstick shades are available to all skin tone.
EASY ON THE SHIMMERY EYE SHADOWS
Think about the texture- be strategic with shimmer and shine as it could look too much for the picture. You can mix matte with shimmery colours to tone down the shimmer.
POWDER YOUR NOSE:
Translucent powder is more efficient at hiding shine then blotting paper , but taking both with you is essential especially if you have very oily skin.
Mac powder prep and prime
CRY-PROOF MAKEUP :
Worried about crying? Apply waterproof mascara to upper lashes only and waterproof eyeliner on the lower lashes softly on waterline and blend to define.
YSL – waterproof eyeliner
Dior – waterproof mascara
Sisley- waterproof eye pencil
BROW HOW-TO :
Subtly fill your brows with powder and groom them with a brow brush to give your overall look finish and definition. Chose the brow powder like your hair on the brow.
