We sat down with this expert and asked her for her insights on bridal makeup, airbrush makeup, crucial makeup tools and more.
What makeup routine would you recommend for people who only have five minutes or less available in the morning?
An easy way to do makeup in five minutes is to start with a tinted moisturizer that has SPF in it.
Right there you're taking care of three steps: moisturizer, sunscreen, and foundation. Next use a cream blush, dab it on your cheeks, lids, and lips (again you just took care of three more steps).
Next line the eyes with a soft brown eyeliner pencil. Put a coat of mascara on the upper and lower lashes. Set the face with a translucent powder followed by some clear gloss to go over the cream blush you put on your lips and your out the door!
How is bridal makeup different from everyday makeup?
Bridal makeup s different then regular makeup because there are a lot more things to think about. Bridal makeup needs to be durable and resistant to last the entire day and night in some cases. It should be enough for photo's but look flawless in person and up close.
The makeup for a bride should follow the theme of the dress, jewelry, head piece etc... the makeup should be timeless because you want to look back at the pictures and love the way you looked. As far as regular makeup goes you have a lot of options and more leverage with the look and the colors depending on the function. It might only have to last a few hours depending on the occasion.
Your favorite medium is the airbrush. Why do you prefer this to more traditional mediums of makeup?
My favorite medium is the airbrush and I prefer this over traditional makeup because of the application and benefits. It lasts much longer then regular makeup (12 hours or more). The application is natural but flawless.
The silicone in the ingredients acts as a spackle and fills in fine lines and wrinkles. If someone touches your face or you sweat the makeup stays. Its great for brides, and people in the media who are in front of cameras a lot.
What are the three most important tools in your makeup kit?
The three most important tools in my makeup kit are my brushes, airbrush machine, and tweezers.
What is the best way to remove makeup at the end of the day?
To take off your makeup at night I recommend using an oil free makeup remover around the eyes followed by a make up wipe to really take the makeup off the skin. Last cleanse with a cleanser that is suitable for your skin type.
