I want to talk about bags. No not Gucci or Mimco. I’m talking about ones that seem to be permanently stored under your eyes.
I've never really been into the whole Kim.K extreme contour thing. Its all just a little too much for me... but then isn't that the great thing about makeup? That we can all choose to wear as much or as little (or even none!!) as we want? It's only makeup and frankly I'm really tired of all the makeup bashing going around. If it makes YOU feel good then that really is all that matters!
If you are doing bridal work or just want your own makeup to last more than 5 minutes then you definitely DO need to use primers. Every company seems to have one on the market but, from my own experience, they don’t all do what they should do, improve the texture of the skin and help makeup last longer.
I know what you're thinking. It's bloody freezing so why am I doing a sunscreen product review??
So I have a very dear friend named Rob (Hi Rob!), my son calls her Nana Rob, and like me she is a creative soul who loves to play with makeup. I posted AGES ago about Becca's gorgeous Shimmering Skin Perfector and it caught her eye and prompted her to post me this question...
I was wondering about if there are hints for best application areas for well worn skin. And skin that is very fair like mine. It would be fair to suggest tailored application is better in this case to avoid looking ....artificial ?
Anything that will make my clients eye makeup last through tears is a winner in my book and Iridis Cosmetics Eye Primer is most definitely a winner!
Not too long ago the terms 'cruelty free' and 'luxury makeup products' were not synonymous. "Cruelty free" equaled hippies in tie dye with homemade, hand-mixed mineral foundations and berry stained lips. And while personally I am very fond of my tie dyed makeup maker sisters, the truth is that those products were just not that suitable for professional use. Sure, for everyday use, natural mineral makeup is a great option but it just didn't stand up to professional use when a client is paying good money to have a product that will last an entire day through tears and sweat.
At themakeupchair we believe that our bridal clients will benefit from having a hair and makeup trial before the big day. But if you are a super relaxed bride, or just want the 'I did it myself' look, then you may be wondering is it really worth it, or is it just another expense to add to the wedding day list??
