Your makeup needs to be subtle, nothing to dark and bold, although accenting eyes and lips always looks good. A subtle base helps your complexion look naturally healthy. Definitely avoid heavy contouring. You want it to be you, you on your best day.
MOISTURISE. This is in capitals because it’s that important. If you want a flawless look, you need moisturised skin. If you do nothing else, make sure you do this the night before.
Concealer. Another essential, concealer, will hide the dark shadows beneath your eyes.
Define your brows. Not essential but we recommend having your eyebrows threaded to get a great outline, and then filling in with pencil. Which leads us on to the next tip…
Blend, blend, blend. This applies to foundation, blusher, eyeshadow, eyeliner, all of it – blend away harsh edges and lines with a clean brush or a damp sponge.
Contouring. Adding light and shade helps prevent your face looking flat. This doesn’t mean scary catwalk model blocks of colour, you can simply use a bronzer on your nose, forehead and the top of your cheeks for a sunkissed look.
Natural light. Where possible, we recommend doing your make up in natural light. If you get it right in natural light, it will look good anywhere. If you are doing your own makeup, you are welcome to use either our daylight makeup station, or our fully lit makeup mirror in the studio.
Invest in the right tools. Good brushes will make all the difference. Keep them clean by simply washing them with a nice-smelling handwash.
Most Importantly, relax, have fun and enjoy the experience. We will direct you throughout, your in safe hands.
