Two Toned Eyeliner & Anastasia Lip Gloss

I was recently sent the gorgeous new Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss set to try out and fell in love with the Nude set. It has six beautiful shades of neutral tone goodness! These glosses are not only gorgeously pigmented, but they smell like literal sugar. In the look below I am wearing Dainty {peach} mixed with Vintage {rose}, to create a dusty rose lip! I am also sporting a wicked liner. Winged liner is my go-to for my every day makeup. I never get sick of a slick black wing, but I like to change it up sometimes. So today I am sharing the products I use to create a bronzed two-tone wing! I am also wearing the new Huda Beauty Mink lashes in “Raquel”, a very wispy, thick and long lash!
Hope you enjoy!

Two Tone Liner: To create this playful style of winged liner, it is very simple. Draw a winged liner as thick as you desire how you  regularly would. Second, use an angled eyeliner brush, and a sparkle bronze color. Over line the beginning of the inner corner of liner to the middle of the eye with the bronzed shadow. This will create an “ombre” effect to the liner from light to dark. Apply mascara or false lashes. Complete!

Contour Transformation: New Zealand Bride

I was so excited to do makeup on this beautiful blonde bride of mine, as well as honored that she traveled all the way from New Zealand to Vegas and booked me. I love when my brides find me on Pinterest from across the world and book with me. I loved doing this transformation, my style is definitely on the more glamorized side of makeup. I am a fan of the full contour and false lashes look. Its all about how you apply it though! See how I created this makeup below! XOXO

photo 2-13

 

For all those who were interested in the breakdown of this makeup look, I am finally sharing it! When it comes to glam bridal makeup, the blending is the most important part. For full coverage looks, the mistake many artists do is not using the right tools to apply the foundation and powders. You need a Beauty Blender, high quality brushes, and HD cremes to create a flawless face. Airbrush makeup is just the icing on top when it comes to creating that “smooth complexion”. See all the products I used below, and for those interested in my advanced Makeup Artist lessons, email me at Jadembaird@gmail.com 

Face Products:
Primer: Clarins Instant Smooth Pore Filler - apply all over skin to fill in lines and pores
Concealer: Eve Pearl “Salmon” concealer to highlight and brighten under the eyes and hide any wrinkles
HD Creme/Contour: Anastasia Cream Contour Kit in Light - apply “Banana” to highlight & “Cream” to contour

4252
Airbrush Foundation: Temptu S/B #7 & #6 mixed {Airbrush classes available}
Powder: Frankie Rose “Olive” powder - Apply all over the face to set the airbrush foundation.
Under eye powder: Ben Nye “White” powder to set under the eyes – This is a super important product for ALL makeup artists, I use this to “Bake” or as most call it “Set” the under eyes. Apply this before applying any eyeshadow to avoid fall-out.
Blush: theBalm “Frat Boy” - Apply this peach matte blush to the apples of the cheeks.
Bronzer: MAC Trace Gold - Used to contour the nose and narrow the bridge and tip. To learn my technique attend on of my classes.
Highlight: Dose of Colors “Pearl Dust” -a pink/pearl glow highlight – Apply to inner eyes, nose, cheekbones, cupids bow!

Eyes:
Shadow: Tarte TARTLETTE palette - all neutral brown shades
Liner: Motives Luxe liner pen-  for top lash line /  NYX Mechanical pencil in black for waterline

PR1_1413370259
Lashes: Huda Beauty “Coco Jo” – multi length fluttery lashes
Brows: Anastasia Brow Wiz “Soft Brown” to shape brows perfectly
Setting Spray: Japonesque Setting Spray - My absolute favorite setting spray at the moment, it takes away any oils and sets the makeup perfectly so it lasts all day long!

Lipstick: Dose of Colors in “Coy” a very peach lipstick shade that is beautiful for any bride!
Lipgloss: Buxom “Boo-ya” lip gloss – full bodied plumping gloss!

The Flawless Bride: Defined Brows

Do they get much prettier? I think not. I was so excited when I met this gorgeous bride, she not only had perfect skin, but amazing features as well! Makes my job so easy, and sometimes I feel guilty even putting any product on a face this beautiful. I went with a dewy airbrush look to enhance her glowing skin, smokey/sparkling eyeshadows, and a more defined brow to shape her face better. I was so happy with how this bridal look came out and couldn’t wait to share it with you all! To inquire about wedding makeup please email Jadembaird@gmail.com

Baby Pink Obsessions

I was inspired to create this look from the South Korean music genre, K Pop. I love to see their music videos, they always have such adorable hairstyles and doll-like makeup. Baby pinks have been controlling my makeup looks lately, I just love wearing such soft, romantic colors paired with light natural lashes. It looks very feminine and I have been gradually doing more sweet simple looks like this lately. I am using my new top foundation from Tarte called the Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage. This stuff is gorgeous, it has a beautiful velvety finish and goes on like butter to the skin. I wear the color Light Sand! I stuck with just a solid mega-black winged liner and my favorite Huda lashes! Enjoy

Pageant/Event Makeup Transformation

Hi loves!

Today I am sharing a lesson that I taught to one of my adorable clients, Capri! I was skeptical to share this makeover because I know a lot of people are against young girls wearing makeup, but this sweet girl came to me wanting to learn the tricks of my trade and all that came with it to create a perfect Pageant look herself. Capri has been involved in pageants for the past several years and has come to me many times for lessons. When it comes to “Stage makeup” you have to apply more than you usually would to the normal eye. I still am all about a flawless face and never creating a cake-face. We went with some of my favorite & must-have products to create this evening look for her final Pageant walk. This teen beauty was so happy with the results and has gone on in competing in many more pageants with the confidence to creating a lovely look herself. If you are interested in doing a lesson for contouring or pageant makeup, email Jadembaird@gmail.com :)

Purple Vibes…

Happy Tuesday beautiful babes!

I have been obsessed lately with purple lips. I usually would NEVER wear this color, because I am stuck in my ways and love that sexy-nude-lip, BUT, this color is the exception. Most of the products used to create this look are from my favorite woman, Anastasia Beverly Hills. Her products are always super quality and gorgeous, and I think they are affordable as well. I also used a brand new foundation created by the talented MakeupbyLilit. This full coverage and lightweight foundation is great for ALL skin types, I have semi-oily skin and it holds really well on mine! See more below!

Bellami Hair Extensions Review

photo-8

 

Hello Loves!

I promised a Bellami hair review a couple months ago and I finally am getting around to it! Needless to say, I love them! I only wear these extensions for photo shoots because I naturally have long hair, and I am one of those girls who loves to wear a pony tail on the weekly! BUT, if I were to wear extensions every day, I would highly suggest these. I wear the Bellisma “Dirty Blonde” 22inches. The color blends perfectly with my golden tones, and I like how it even adds a little more of a “blombre” look to my locks. Below I have written my favorite things about these extensions and why you should purchase your pair today…

Use discount code: JADE 

1. Keeps Curls
I feel like these extensions hold the curl really well. I usually just have to curl them once and they hold atleast for the next 5 times I use them! I don’t suggest to use a hot iron on them daily just to ensure that they last a lot longer.

2. Strong Clips
These rubber grip clips really hold to the hair. I didn’t have to tease the root or even add any hairspray for them to stay in place. The longest I have worn the extensions is around 5 hours, so I am not sure how well they would do for a full day, BUT I didn’t have any issues with discomfort and think they feel very secure.

3. Super Thick Wefts
These extensions are perfect for those seeking more volume to there hair. Each weft is filled with thick hair and a lot of it. I only use around 2 wefts in my hair to add thickness. Sometimes I will wear to on each sides of my hair {parted in middle} to really add that extra thickness at the root.They can feel a bit heavy if you are not used to wearing them, but this isn’t visible.

4. Must Brush Often
The only thing I noticed is that they need to be taken care of very often. To keep them looking quality I brush them with my Wet Brush after each use and before. I have not yet washed them, so once I do I will let you know how they turn out!

Hope you enjoyed this quick review and to get a discount be sure to use my code above! XOXO
