How do I know what #shape my #face is?

I love working with clients at my salon on a daily basis, as well as brides and commercial shoots because I always get asked interesting questions that I often take for granted…

Here are some ways you can assess which face shape you have…

Square faces have quite short foreheads and short chins and quite equal in proportion.

Round faces have softer features, but short forehead and chin too.

Rectangle faces are similar to square shapes, but with more length from temple to jawline.

Heart Face: This shape has a chin that is more pointed than oval, and the forehead is wider than the jawline.

#Looking after your lips in the cold weather

Make sure you care for your lips this winter, so you can still pout, rock gorgeous lipstick and kiss your fav fellow ;o) Here are three tips for lip care during cold days.

  1. Exfoliate dry skin on your lips with a really soft toothbrush – buy a kid’s one. Don’t bite the skin on your lips or pull at it.Funky Make-up
  2. Wear lip balm instead of gloss, lots of moisturising balms can add a subtle sheen, so you still look pretty and made-up without the gloss adding to sore or dry lips.
  3. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and eat plenty of nourishing foods and steer clear of refined sugars.

#Flawless make-up cannot be naked…

When it comes to having flawless foundation, in order for it to not look flat or caked, it is very important that it is blended down the neck and over the jawline… this is why airbrushing foundations are effective, because the airbrush application ensures an even coverage that starts as light and can build up to the desired finish. If you apply foundation and stop there and leaving it ‘naked’, adding no bronze, contouring or blusher, then the finished look can be unnatural, caked or flat.

Foundation is brilliant in that it covers blemishes and evens out skin tone, but it also covers natural colours and can disguise bone structure. It provides a canvas for the makeup to be applied, which means shine, contouring, bronze and blusher.

SO REMEMBER TO DRESS YOUR FLAWLESS FOUNDATION WITH BLUSH, BRONZE AND SHINE TO CREATE YOUR FINAL LOOK.

What is a #bridal # makeup trial?

Even the last minute of booking need a bridal make-up trial and proper consultation… why? Well, without it no make-up artist, no matter how skilled and experienced they are,  can truly be as prepared as possible for their bride… and no bride, no matter how confidence and pretty they may be, can really put faith in a look that has not yet being tested out first… after all it is the single most exciting and important day of your life to date (for the most of us!!!)

Make up Bridal trials are all about making your bride-to-be feel confident and beautiful, so they know exactly what to expect on the day of the wedding. We often fear the unknown, and being afraid on your wedding day is not an option, especially when it comes to the make-up.

Finding out what look a bride is looking to achieve, asking about the style of the dress, hairstyle, colour scheme and achieving the perfect finish is all done during the consultation! Tony Gameiro photos Kent

Also, the trial is a great time to make any last minute changes, it is also a lovely opportunity for a bride to get to really know how the make-up artist works, and for the make-up artist to really take the opportunity to make you, the bride-to-be feel totally at ease.
