Amazing before and after #bridesmaid picture…

My lovely bridesmaid from last month has allowed me to share her before and after photo of her make up I did for her.

Many people do not like to be seen without their make-up, but it isn’t anything to be afraid or ashamed of, I really see the beauty in all of my clients, and when I bring out that beauty with a natural make-up look, it is really great to be able to see the transformation of confidence.

This bridesmaid has suffered with burns on her cheeks from having to use steroid medication when she was younger, and as a result was left with very red cheeks and sensitive skin.

I used @airbasemakeup to give a very even and flawless coverage lasts all day. As you can see I have applied the make-up to completely reduce the redness and inflamed appearance of skin, but still creating a crimson blush look that all sexy bridesmaids need. Under the eyes have been focused on too, reducing dark circles. I have defined eyes and eyebrows to bring out her beautiful eye colour – that as you can see have an amazing sparkle of confidence in the after photograph.

#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.
