Summertime essentials

May 28 2014

 

 

Save time have a bag packed and ready to go on any sunny day outing or last minute beach trip.
Lets start with your beach bag - great big hat, SPF 15 or higher for the body, sunglasses, towel and a great book.

Now for your makeup bag. Primer, tinted moisturizer, cream blush, waterproof mascara & liner and lipgloss with an SPF.

-Prep with a primer, trust us, its worth extra step, it fills fine lines, helps makeup go on smooth and keeps everything in place. And a must for that summer oily skin and dry/normal skin. 

-Lighten up, skip the thick foundation and go for a tinted moisturizer with SPF.

-Waterproof mascara is a must and one that helps lashes even better.

-Don’t forget the longlasting waterproof liner.

-Put the powder blush away and take out the bronzer and cream blush.

-A pretty go-2 gloss, go for one with a natural SPF.  This one has vanilla extract and comes in many sheer shades.

Many brides don't realize they need more makeup than their everyday routine. Even natural makeup needs to be amped up to avoid looking washed out in photos. Founder of sh. cosmetics and celebrity Makeup Artist, Megan Ambroch, 
offers her tips and a guide on how to look your beautiful best on your wedding day.

THE LOOK

Put together a Pintrest board of what kind of look you would like for your special day. Or collect photos to share with your makeup/hair stylist.

PRACTICE

Do a full trial run of your hair and makeup before the big day. Take pictures with and without flash, indoors and out, to ensure you like your look in all elements. Put together a Pintrest private board or photos after your trial.

NATURAL LIGHT

Set up your makeup station in an area with natural sunlight
—avoid artificial lighting to get a true color representation of your makeup shades.

PREP

Exfoliate with microdermabrasion exfoliator the night before, the morning of the wedding, apply revitalizing eye gel, both products will help allow makeup to go on nice and smooth and refresh the skin.

Relax & let the magic happen

Megan’s Magic base applied, resulting in that sought after "bridal glow.”  Prime with flawless complexion gel to help keep your makeup in place from ceremony to reception.

FIRST LOOK

Apply a light airbrush or foundation base. Eyeshadow base and waterproof
 mascara and waterproof liner are secret weapons on your big day. Follow with eye shadow, smudging and blending to perfection.  Complete your eyes by filling in your brows and or set with a brow gel.  

EYE POPPING

Add a couple individual lashes on the outer corner of each eye or full lashes made to perfection for you. This will make your eyes pop, but still look natural.

CONCEAL

To camouflage conceal under eye circles and brighten eyes, full coverage apply multipurpose- foundation stick or corrector duo for the most sensitive eyes. After foundation.

BUILD THE COVERAGE

For best results, apply with a light touch and slowly build your coverage. You can always touch up if needed.

BLUSHING BRIDE

Apply liquid cream blush on the apples of your cheeks and sweep towards the temple for a natural flush.  

HIGHLIGHT

Apply highlighter or liquid-bronzer  or a powder mineral bronze on the tops of the cheekbones, decollate, under the brow bone, the inner corner of the eyes shadow- shimmer for subtle shimmer and that unforgettable bridal glow.  

Lock in the Look

Apply HD finishing powder to prevent excess shine and lock in that unforgettable look.

LIPS

Balance your lips with your eyes, waterproof lipliner a must for all, a strong bold eye goes with a neutral sheer gloss and a natural eye go with a bold lip in color gloss or lipstick.

MOST FORGOTTEN & IMPORTANT

Airbrush/foundation/highlighting/bronzing should match anywhere your skin is showing, from your head to your toes.
