Flamed by Goldilux SUGARPILL

Hey loves, I'm back sorry for the longish wait.  I share with you this interesting look of a pop of colour on the outer corner, i just thought it would be nice to be different and not have pretty look, personally I love the orange on the end.  Its just different and works well with the rep lip at least I think so.  It is after all makeup and does wash off.

I don't know what happened with the editing but it skipped showing you the red lipstick so it is Tom Ford in Narcotic rouge

I hope you like and i will see you all in my next post

Bridal or Date Makeup

Hey beauties.  I wanted to share another Bridal/date look with you.  I always feel like Brides that wear soft colours bring the romance to whole ceremony.  Light golds and brown are classic eye looks most often seen, so I decided to do my take.  As I said you can also wear this to a date because its all about not too much but enough to show you made a good effort.  The key to this look is a blend blend blend and allow the softness of the look to come through.

It is important as a bride to know what look you are going for and what season you are getting married., this look can pass off in any season as it has the darkness in the crease while adding subtle warmth above the crease with a bright metallic gold on the lid but not so much that you look like a disco ball.

It is important to know your skin, this will allow you to pick the right makeup that will hold up throughout the day. 
Here are some things you should think about.  

Foundation primer, why  because if nothing else it will give your foundation a flawless look.  Primers will cater to many different things so find one that addresses what is important to you.  Personally I have combination oily skin and have huge pores so I would look for one that fills in the pores and drys up my oily skin, or use oil control products.

Here is are few recommendations of great foundations, Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich (for dry skin), Illamasqua Skin Base (for all skin types), YSL Touche Eclat (for dry/very skin) or those looking to have dewy finish, Chanel Vitalumiere (for dry skin)/ Perfection Lumiere (for combination oily or oily), MAC Mineralize Satin Finish (for dry skin)or those looking for makeup that not too heavy but have good coverage, Mac Face Body (for all skin types), Mac Prolongwear (for combination oily and oily), Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer (for all skin types), Estee Lauder Double Wear (for combination oily/oily) and Lancome Le Teint Idole 24hrs (for combination oily/ oily skin). The good thing about these foundations is, you can build them up to fuller coverage should you need to or sheer them out.  You can then choose to power in certain areas or set the whole face using a big fluffy brush so that not a lot of powder is deposited.  Take some fix+ or mist for your face to get rid of any powder that sits on the face, then get setting spray, this will ensure your makeup doesn't budge. 

You really want makeup that not only lasts but looks good lasting, that may mean spending a little more money.  Even if you have dry skin, I would still say get products that last long just so there are no mishaps.
