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

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

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!

Setting Spray: Model In a Bottle – This is one of the most important products that every MUA and everyday gal should own. If you would like your makeup to stay on for up to 24 hours, then purchase THIS now! I have used many setting sprays in the past, MIAB is by far my most favorite. It does not leave the skin sticky or shiny. It sucks oil out of the skin and holds the liquids and powders on for an entire day. I use this on all my brides so that their face/eyes last through their special day!

Retro eyes & A POP of color…

Hello hunnies!
Hope your weekend was fabulous. Last week I had the opportunity to do my darling friend, Aubrey’s, makeup for a wedding inspired shoot. I actually did her makeup for her wedding last year as well and was so excited when she was chosen to be the model. Saying she is perfectly gorgeoous is an understatement, just see below. I went for a very retro inspired eye and a hot pink matte lip. This is a super fun look for a photo shoot, Vegas trip or straight up every day if you are gutsy enough. I loved how it turned out with Aubrey’s turquoise eyes. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back for an amazing skincare giveaway this week with Image Skincare!

So to achieve this look what you will need mostly is black liner: liquid & Pencil, a hot pink lip pencil, and lashes. Those are the staple products that are used here, so it really doesnt matter what brand you use. This is much easier than it looks because not a lot of eyeshadow is used.

Since this beautiful lip pencil is not avaialble yet, I have included some DUPE colors below for you to try! MUAH!

She introduced me to the beautiful matte lipsticks called “Velvatines” from Lime Crime and now I am obsessed. If you are searching for a color to last you all day on your lips, this product is perfect for you! They go from liquid to matte in seconds and stay for hours! For Jovanna’s bridal look we went for a very classic/retro bride with that perfect pop of burgundy on her lips! Learn more about how to get this look below!
