REPOST // My top 10 foundations

Foundation seems to have a myth surrounding it that it can be difficult to master.  I am often asked what the trick is to achieving a smooth finish, that doesn’t look too heavy or like a mask.  The trick?  Well, all it is is good quality foundation correctly colour matched.  How you apply the foundation is completely up to you – whether you use fingers, a brush or sponge.  What’s important is to use clean tools and adopt a method that works for you.  Here are my top 10 foundations I love to use for my clients x

1. No.7 Stay Perfect Foundation

2. L.A Girl Pro Coverage HD Long Wear Illuminating Liquid Foundation

3. Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Mousse Makeup

4. Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay Perfect-in-Place Makeup

5. Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

6. Yves Saint Laurent All Hours Foundation

7. L’Oreal Paris True Match Foundation

8. Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation

How I created *that* peaches and cream makeup design – Modern Romantic

Firstly, sorry this has taken me so long to post!  I know I promised this last week, but I got caught up in doing some gorgeous weddings and photoshoots so it kind of got put on the back burner… but today I’ve actually had some time to do tons of paperwork, book more clients in and post a couple of things!  So here is how I created a design I call ‘Peaches and Cream’ for our Modern Romantic styled shoot, which currently featured on My Wedding Fair

I started off by creating a medium to deep smokey eye using browns that either had a slight cooper element, or were underlined by a peach tone.  All of which were by MAC.  I then lined the eyes in a brown soft kohl and blended to give a smooth edge, adding false eyelashes by KISS in Peony, I filled in the brows finishing the eyes.  Moving onto the skin I used 2 sets of primers by Dr Brandt and Smashbox – to smooth and prep the skin for foundation.  I used a combination of YSL Touche Eclat Foundation and Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation to give the skin a good coating.  I then used a blusher by MAC in Peaches (of course) and bronzer by Bobbi Brown in Golden Light.  To finish I used a Bobbi Brown lipstick in Coral Pink x

Sophie and her fairytale wedding at Solent Hotel & Spa

Yesterday I had the enormous pleasure of doing the bridal makeup for Sophie before her wedding at Solent Hotel & Spa, located in Hampshire.  Sophie had the most sweetest love story of how she met her beau, that I just knew her bridal makeup had to reflect her cute romantic soul.  When I met Sophie for her makeup trial she was uncertain of what she wanted in terms of design, but once she showed me her boho styled wedding gown and the style of her hair with the gypsophila flowers – I knew it had to be soft yet with a neat contoured eye.

Sophie’s skin was incredible to work with and needed little foundation, but what I did was use a combination of YSL touche eclat foundation with a little Bourjois healthy mix foundation to allow her skin to breath whilst providing a long wear element to it x
