Blushing #Bridal Make-up

Peach, blush and pastel corals are great tones for a spring or summer wedding, and is the perfect choice for a bride who is not a fan of bright pinks, but wants to keep the feminine softness of her chosen wedding colours… this image is great inspiration for a blush wedding… the beautiful bride Clare has opted for these peachy tones with a dewy finish to match the flowers and bridesmaid dresses.

#Bridal guest make-up

This lovely lady popped in to have a makeup trial for a wedding she is invited to. This before and after shows the quality of Airbase Airbrush foundation, as you can see it looks natural, and glowing on the skin and eliminates the signs of ageing, redness and blemishes, leaving a great base for the rest of the makeup… bringing out her lovely, large, sparkly eyes.

I love #bringoutbeauty.

#Tips for Reducing Redness

Okay, so we can get redness for a number of reasons, it can be just a natural part of our skin tone and quality – which is different to having red pigment. It can be from skin damage such as acne or sunburn, and it can be created from reactions to products or food too. Sometimes treatments can create redness for a short while after you have had one, for example certain facials, but this is usually fine, and calms down after 24-48 hours depending on the treatment. It does mean though if you have a special occasion coming up – you may want to use any previously tried treatments or products a good couple of days prior to the event, especially a wedding day.

Reduce Redness

For some skin where redness occurs, the best thing for it is a great primer or base, and I always use the Airbrush foundation, because it creates an amazing flawless finish, and as you can see from this before and after image it disguises any redness, and allows for a smooth appearance, with long lasting effects. My brides, and bridal parties swear by this method, as do I.

How to… get an #AngelinaJolie #bridalmakeup look

Angelina Jolie always looks stunning… and one of her iconic make-up looks is the nude finish with defined eyes, as shown on this lovely bride… And here is how you and get Angelina Jolie bride makeup.

Angelina Jolie BrideFoundation: Before starting with the foundation make sure you match up the colour of the product to your skin to make sure it blends evenly down to the neck. Once this has been matched ideally have the Airbase Primer applied and then spray the Airbase Airbrushing Foundation evenly all over the entire face and down to the neck area.

Eyes: Apply an eye primer over the entire lid to avoid the eyeshadow creasing. Use a neutral shadow over the entire lid then blend a subtle taupe colour into the crease to the outer edge of the eyelid sweeping a chocolate shimmer gel liner along the top lash line and under the bottom lash line to add definition and to open the eyes. Apply mascara and add fake lashes – I used Eyelure Volume Strip Lashes to open the eye and give a sexy sultry look.

Cheeks: Contour the cheeks with a beautiful bronzer to add definition then apply a rosy blusher along the cheekbones to add subtle colour to this natural look.

Lips: Keep it natural with a neutral pink tone gloss.

Perfect… Now all you need is your personal Brad Pitt and you’ll be on your way to having an amazing wedding day.
