Best way to wear blusher !

There is 4 category cheek shape to be aware and how to use blusher.

Round Cheeks

Round cheeks are luck of definition and the best way to make more definition is to place the blush directly below the pupils in the centre of the cheeks and sweep up diagonally to add dimension to the large surface area towards the 0′ clock .

High Cheekbones

Everyone like this prominent cheekbones, but they can look a bit hollow without blusher, to add bit fullness , apply the blusher to the centre of the cheeks in a 3 to 9 o’clock horizontal line.

Long Cheeks

Long cheeks can appear flat and hidden and is not very hard to lift them. Only need to apply your blusher wide as possible from the centre of the cheeks below the pupil towards the ears and lift at the end.

When you use powder blush is great to use powder after your foundation as is stay for much longer and it doesn’t create a patchy look.

If you prefer to use cream blusher the best way is to use after foundation without powder for glowing cheeks.

Hope you find it very useful

The best way to match your skin foundation !!!

I decide to write this blog as I got inspire from sales assist that try to sell some foundation to the customers.
How to choose your right foundation .

Each one of us is classified as having a light, medium, or dark skin tone.

One way you can choose the right color of foundation is to go to the cosmetics counter of either a drug store or department store. Make sure you go without any makeup on.
Also ,don’t listen to the shop assistant to check your foundation colour on back of your hand as is so wrong. And the back of your hand is always different colour then your face.

Tip or Choosing the Right Color of Foundation:

Find one that looks like it is close to your skin colour
. Apply the foundation colour on your fingers before.

. Apply it near your jaw line on your face. around 3-4 foundation line is the best to see your perfect match.
.Wait a few minutes.
.Go outside if you can and take a look at yourself.

Does it look like it one of the colour been disappearing ??
If so, you have found your ideal color. If not, try another one.

The light in the department stores and the drug stores are usually very unflattering. This is because many of them use fluorescent lighting, which is unnatural and won’t give you the full affect you need to determine if it matches your skin.

This is why it is recommended to use natural light as the source for determining if the foundation you have chosen will be a match to skin.

– Another Foundation Tip

If after numerous trials and you have tried at least 5 or more and still can’t find one, then think about purchasing two to blend together.

Most of us will not find the ideal color, especially if we have an uneven skin tone, scars or birth marks. Buying two foundations gives you more variety.

Since many of us tend to get darker in the summer, we can use the darker one for the warmer months, and the lighter colored foundation during the winter months. It’s a win, win situation.

For the other months, you can blend both of them together to give you your own personalized foundation color that perfectly matches your skin tone.

Products to lose a tone of weight !!!

Today ill post on my blog something different then my normal makeup updates.
I did come across with article about loosing weight on natural way and look and feel good as well.
I decide to share with you all and see if anyone agree to it or perhaps did try it as well!

Raspberry Ketone is the latest weight loss fad??
This so called Superfood that you take as a supplement to lose weight have been getting a lot of international attention.

And like you have probably already seen; they are all over the internet in blogs and success stories of people who have apparently used the Raspberry Ketone pills and lost a ton of weight. But I’m a little skeptical and aren’t sure that we’ve seen any real proof that the acai berry works for weight loss.
So if anyone will decided to put these products to the test.
What better way to find out the truth than to conduct our own study?

To get started, you have to get a bottle of LipoSlim and Natural cleanse.

Take LipoSlim once a day

Here is what LipoSlim claimed on their website…
4 Times More Weight Loss Than Diet And Exercise
Boosts Energy Throught the Day
Effective Appetite Suppressant
Works Quickly, Proven Results

Take one Natural Cleanse pill per day

Here is what Natural Cleanse claimed on their website…
Helps Eliminate Bad Toxins that have Built Up Over the Years
Removes ‘Sludge’ from the Walls of the Colon
Helps Get Rid of Gas and Bloating
Helps to Regulate the Metabolism

While there are many emerging raspberry ketone ads online,they said LipoSlim is one of the most credible and trustworthy suppliers on the market. It included the risk-free trial of the product and it did not try to fool me into agreeing to additional hidden offers. Another reason they say to chose LipoSlim is because it is the most concentrated and purest raspberry ketone product on the market.
It all sound great and apparently all celebrity is taking, but when I will have a chance ill ask around and see if people are aware and how for them is working?
Anyone try this products so far??

Perfect eye gel !!!

As a makeup artist always search for new products and skin care.

I thought I would share this with you.
The other day I had celebrity client that we spoke about how the skin under her eyes with makeup is getting dry and after the foundation much more dryer as well!
As we spoke about it and I suggested to try very hydrated eye gel cream before.
So I start preparing her skin with cleansing, tone and the best eye gel that I use on her skin was
Laura Mercier flawless skin eye gel cream.
This is amazing product that is very light in texture help to reduce under the eye dryness and puffiness as well.
Was fascinating how fast absorbs into the skin. You don’t need to wait long time to apply your favourite concealer, or if someone had bit older skin and dryer I would only keep the concealer under the eyes light with products and with bit foundation will do the trick .

The skin under the eyes is very delicate and is much better to stay moisture around , as is seems not to settle the eye wrinkle when not apply powder or tick concealer.

Always use eye gel before you apply the foundation and try not too over powder that aria to keep the eyes looking pumper and brighter through the day.
Here is the eye gel by Laura Mercier

Last week I had a chance to be working in collaboration with great celebrity photographer
Zoe McConnell. We shoot beauty in studio with lovely models from Milk management in London.
On the day I had an idea to create a makeup look that I haven’t done before.
Lovely Petra had a great skin and shape eyes to inspire me for this look.
There how she looked without makeup

20130404-161131.jpg
Eyes with half liquid water resistant eye liner by YsL and half way i use Laura Mersey mascara with some individual lushes just to make it bit fuller.
Used Nars pencil inside the eye water line and under only on half eye and eyeshadow in dark indigo from Matte palette by YSL above the crease of her eyes just to create a sharper line and after i did smudge the edges with pointed brush by Mac cosmetics number #249 , but still keeping the eyeshadow in place.

For her lips I prepare with Sisley lip balm before to soften up her lips and after I use beautiful Shade lipsticks in L14 by Sisley.

Here is how Petra looks after with makeup.
