Pore Fillers: Hiding Acne & Scars

Hello Babes!

I always get asked the best products for hiding pores, filling in lines, & smoothing out pimples and scars! Well you are in luck because I have compiled some of my favorite products below for just this! Pores are inevitable, you cannot get rid of them, but you can minimize and hide them with the right technique. Often people are afraid of makeup when they have acneic or scarred skin because it can make it look “CAKEY” if not applied the correct way. Layering more and more product on will only leave you looking overly frosted. Primer and Pore Fillers will be your best friend if you struggle with texturized skin. Keep reading to learn my favorites at the moment…

Pore Fillers / Line Fillers / Scar Fillers:

Fillers are usually clear/ or flesh tone and are best when applied with the fingers directly to the skin. Focus on the T-zone if your pores are large in these areas. For scars/wrinkles you can apply these with fingers to the area as well. Apply lightly so that you are not soaking up a lot of the product into your hands. Let dry and foundation can be applied over with a Beauty Blender- this is the best tool for hiding texture.

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!

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

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!

Soft Glamour: Dewy Skin Tricks

Hello Darlings!
Today I will be sharing with you one of the looks I created on the gorgeous Kelly Clark for the Borboleta Beauty site! I love soft-glam looks and anything that still looks natural on the skin. When it comes to foundation, I am all about letting the skin still breathe and show through the makeup. Finding products that will not create that “Cake” or heavily powdered look can be tricky. My favorite thing to keep the skin looking healthy and not covered up is to apply a moisturizing setting spray at the end. This is super important to create that “Dewy/Glowy” look. Check out my favorite spray below as well as how to create this soft look!

Dewy Skin…
Setting Spray: Mario Badescu Rosewater – this ultra moisturizing spray will help to create that glowing look after applying powder. I like to spray it hands-length away from the face twice in an X motion. Take a clean big fluffy face brush and pat the skin with it, this will press the moisture into the makeup and create that look. I love the Rose smell to this spray as well. It has Aloe & Herbs for a nice refreshing feel!

‘Tis The Season For Red…

Good Morning Sweets!

‘Tis the season to shine! Its time to dust off your sparkly dresses and glam up your beauty routine with hints of red! To help get you in the spirit, today I am sharing with you a holiday bridal look that I created on the gorgeous, Kendyl Bell. She wanted a very glamorous Winter look, so of course we had to do some bright ombre red lips! I used two of my favorite products to create this look, House of Lashes in “Iconic” & Lime Crime Velvetine lip stain! I wanted to do a review on these two because they give the perfect finishing touches to this seasonal makeup!

Enjoy…

IMG_8914

Lime Crime Velvetine in “Red Velvet” – This velvet to matte lip creme is gorgeous for photos and every day wear. Spice up your Xmas by wearing this paired with golden eyes or a sophisticated wing! I always suggest these for clients who are taking engagement photos or wedding day because they stay on even through the kissing! Line your lips completely with a darker toned lip liner {2 shades darker than the red to create the “Ombre” look} then fill in the center of the lips with the matte creme!

de636f56b3b4a0cf8688b2cb2d26b6b3

IMG_8918Lashes: House of Lashes in “Iconic” – These spikey fluffy lashes are so perfect for opening up the eyes and creating a really dramatic look to the eyes! The band on these lashes is a little thicker than normal to allow all the hairs to be supported, so if you have sensitive eyes I would suggest trying a lash a little bit thinner. For those who don’t mind the band these lashes will look great on you! I love applying them to round eyes because they really open them up even more! They are also reusable up to 5 times when you take good care of them! House of Lashes always supplies high quality lashes!

Boudoir Eyes: Before & After

Hello Beauties!

I love boudoir makeup. It is so sexy, seductive and hot! I was able to do one of my closest friends makeup this week for hers and was so happy she loved it. We did traditional makeup for this look and did a mixture of Tom Ford and Dior foundation for a very glowy look to the skin. I used my favorite Huda lashes and the Too Faced Boudoir eyes palette to accentuate her eyes! If you are interested in doing a boudoir shoot and need makeup this look is perfect for all, email me for any inquiries! XOX

Products used:

Prime: Motives Perfecting– apply all over skin with fingers. I have been using this primer on clients for the past month and it is by far one of my “must-haves”. It smooths fine lines and fills in any pores/pimples to give an extra smooth finish before foundation.

Foundation: Tom Ford foundation stick #05 / Dior Forever #021 mixed with a beauty blender

Concealer: LA Girl Cosmetics in Ivory – Apply under the eyes and blend in with beauty blender

Setting: Frankie Rose in “Olive” – Apply with a fluffy powder brush and press into skin to set

Contour: Milk Chocolate Soleil by Too Faced– Apply with a slim powder brush to the forehead, cheekbones and nose to contour

Highlight: MUFE Compact shine on #5 – Apply to the temples and high cheekbones, nose, cupids bow and inner corner.

Blush: AOM Cosmetics in “Alluring” -this soft coral/pink is the perfect touch of blush on the cheeks. Apply with a stippling brush for a very light blushing look.

Brushes: Hair and Makeup Addiction Set

IMG_7045

Eyeshadow: Any Gray & Black eyeshadow will do to create this top heavy eyeshadow look. I used the actual “Boudoir Eyes” palette from TOO FACED, it just has some beautiful neutral/dark tones for smokey eyes. Apply “Garter Belt” or your gray all over the eyelid with a flat shadow brush, pack it on. Then blend “French Tickler” or your black on the outer corner/crease with a blending brush in circular motions. Dont take the shadow higher than the crease to avoid making it too dramatic. Shadow is complete- super easy!

Eyeliner: Girlactik Precise Marker Liner – Line the top lash line with this felt tip liner pen to define the top lid before lashes.

Eyelashes: Huda Beauty in “Samantha” {Pre-stacked} | Super excited to announce that these lashes along with all her others will be available in the US this September! I will be doing a giveaway soon with them!

Brows: Anastasia BH Pomade in “Dark Brown” – Fill in the brows to define the shape with this brow gel pomade, a little goes a long way.

Lipstick & Gloss: MAC “Faux” lipstick with Nyx Butter gloss in Creme Brule with MAC Underage lipglass = creamy pink nude lip!

High Fashion/Editorial Glam Shoot: Part 1

Happy weekend my loves!

Today I am sharing with you a very dramatic & glamorous look I created for a fashion shoot  a few weeks ago! These are my favorite looks to create because they allow me to be very artistic with makeup. I posted the fun before and after photo HERE , I always like to show the difference that contouring can make! Obviously Marina needs no makeup to look gorgeous, but I am so glad she was the model and I got to work on her perfect face! I went for a thick winged liner, golden shimmer and deep bordeaux lips. I would suggest this makeup style for mostly party or photo shoots, probably not an everyday style 😉 I will post the face and lips details soon!
