Professional Makeup Application

I wanted to write a blog about professional makeup application

Professional makeup application is a service that many woman do not consider. These are the some of the reasons why:

1)Most woman have a daily "routine" doing their own makeup, that she feels ,will get her by. 2)Having a friend/family friend that is decent at her own makeup and tries to attempt doing yours. 3) Other woman are nervous to have a professional attempt their makeup because they have had a bad experience in the past 4)Or simply because they feel the artist will put way to much makeup on them, and they won't look like themselves.


A professional MUA understands all of the elements that are involved with a application. From the effects of lighting and exposure of the camera, to the textures, tones and finishes of the makeup. A consultation is done before the actual makeup application, so you receive a customize look that accentuates all of your best features using your skin tone, face shape, and eye shape/color. When getting any professional photography: Wedding photography, photo-shoots etc, I highly recommend using a professional makeup artist.

Professional Product:

Using Professional product and brushes are so important in a makeup application. 95% of everyday street makeup like Cover girl, Maybelline, Revlon etc is made for daily wear, it's not made for photography. The purpose for Professional makeup is to enhance your best features and minimize your flaws while staying on all day.
When using eye shadows, foundations and blushes, multiple questions should be asked. Where do I put a frost or a matte eye shadow? Where do I highlight and contour using foundation/blush/bronzer? I professional knows the theoretic reasoning behind these questions leaving your application beautiful and blended, highlighted and contoured properly.
HD Makeup is the new "revolutionary product". The coverage is complete and flawless. It is made for the camera. There is a lot of theory to the whole HD concept, but simply, it leaves a crisp and clear finish to the skin.
Brushes are very important to a application. Makeup brushes vary according to the purpose, design, material, quality and style. They apply the product on smoothly and flawlessly while using minimal product. There are hundreds of brushes with multiple purposes,a MUA will know the reasoning and use for each of them. In addition, maintenance and cleaning are used after each client.

If you have any more questions about professional makeup please feel free to ask me:)

Eye Primers and Base

Hello Friends!!!

So, this week I want to talk about my favorite Eye Primers and Bases. There are several different kinds I use depending on the look I'm going for and of course the price budget I want to stay within. I typically use 2 on the eye before I place down my shadows.
MAC has 3 bases I like. 1)If you experience very oily eye lids I suggest MAC Paint. There are several colors to choose from. A little goes a very long way:) It's crease and water proof giving your shadows 12 hour wear. 2) I love love love MAC Paint Pots. They are similar to Paints but have a little bit more give to them. For more of a matte look I use Painterly and when I use shimmer and frosts shadows I prefer Bare Study. I use these colors on any skin type, texture and tones. These provide 8 hour wear. 3) Shade sticks are a great base also. These are great for beginner artist. They provide a great color to them. For "5 minute makeup" this is a great base/eye shadow to apply. Put down the base on your eye lid, add eye liner and mascara and you're good to go:) These all range around $15
Urban Decay provides a great Primer. It's called Primer Potion. It has a lip gloss type applicator with it. A little goes a long way with this one too. The price point on this primer is around $20. However this one is harder to find. I get mine at Ulta but I've had problems with it being out of stock.
Finally, A very cheap and fairly decent base is from NYX. I use the color "Milk" on all skin types, textutes and tones. It's a great primer for brighter more frostier eye shadow colors. It has a lot of give to it,shadows adhere very well. The price point is about $3 and it's available at Ulta. I don't however, recommend this to people that have oily eye lids.

I hope this information helps you out and answers all your questions about bases/primers. Bases/primers are so important to your makeup routine. If you ever want to wear eyeshadow, always put down a base/primer of your choice or one of my recommendations:) This allows your eyeshadow to stay pure and true throughout the day. Making sure your shadow doesn't crease or fade. I always say this is your "insurance" to your eyeshadow:)

If you have a topic you would like me to write about please let me know. Also visit my website for any other questions:)

Favorite Eye Lashes

Hello friends!!!

I wanted to just share with you my favorite type eye lashes. I get questions all the time about: the lashes I like the best, and lashes I use on my clients. Depending on the occasion and how dramatic you want your makeup, will decide the lash. Overall I use Red Cherry #43 lashes. They are great for "your favorite classic look" to "a dramatic smokey eye" Red Cherry's are very inexpensive and very good in quality. I can where these several times without them falling apart. Their 100% Human Hair. For everyday wear I suggest the Red Cherry individual lashes in short. If you have any question please ask. I'm looking forward to your remarks:)
