Freckle Face: Contour Phase 1

Hello Babes!!!

Today I am sharing with you the first of my contouring with freckles. When it comes to contouring with freckles, you have two options. Cover them completely or learn how to blend with the freckles. In this look, since it was for a high end photo shoot, we did a full cover and contour. If you are interested in learning how to contour for your gorgeous freckle face, and not have to cover your sun kisses then stay tuned, I will be teaching a YouTube video just for this soon!

Feeling Like Fall: Orange Eyes…

 Fall is in full spin here in Utah and its just another reason for me to pull out my Autumn toned shadows! I am usually not a fan of orange or red tones on the eyes but I thought I would give them a try and I surprisingly loved how they turned out! I love to change my makeup style depending on what I wear, where I am going and what season it is. Fall usually calls for dark lips, smokey plum, burgundy, and copper eyes. Today I am showing you this brassy orange smokey eye and peach-tan lips! For any color requests, please email me at Jadembaird@gmail.com 🙂

 Orange eyes… You may be hesitant at first to use this color but I promise once you blend it with browns and golds it looks amazing!
  1. Apply a primer to the eyes for a smooth base: Tarte Clean Slate Creasless
  2. Apply a bright orange shadow all over the lid and into the crease: NARS Duo in “Isolde” – apply the copper orange all over lid. Apply the shimmer gold in center of the eye on top of the orange.
  3. Smoke out the outer and inner brow bone corner of the eye with a brown: Brown Script from MAC in inner corner | Embark from MAC blended on outer crease and lid.
  4. Black liquid liner is to be used on the upper lash line. Draw it thicker in the middle of the eye to make the eyes appear “larger” and wing it out at the end.
  5. Apply black liner to the inner waterline and blend it out with the Embark shadow and then the shimmer gold from NARS over that.
  6. Lashes: Esqido in “Lashmopolitan” – love these! These flare out a lot at the end and are very long, use whatever lashes you desire!

Perfecting Face…

This last Saturday I was able to get a few gorgeous ladies ready for their Miss Utah pageant headshots, including the gorgeous Cassie. This greek beauty not only had the most gorgeous features but the most easy eyes and face to apply makeup to! When it comes to headshots for pageants most photographers use bright lighting, so contouring and highlighting is a must. I went for a more bronzed look to the skin with a touch of mauve blush and bright peach lips. Today I am sharing with you the products I used to create her flawless face. I will share all other details to this look in my part 2 post! If you are interested in booking me for pageant makeup lessons or head-shot makeup, please email me at Jadembaird@gmail.com

Perfecting Face…
When it comes to flawless face makeup, the key is to start out with a clean and exfoliated base. I suggest using anything with small beads that will exfoliate dead skin and prep your face for your primer. I always get asked how I create a smooth flawless skin base while also doing a medium to full coverage look and it is all about the tools you are using and how. Blending is the most important technique when it comes to the face application, slow movements will allow the product to manipulate on the skin and move where it needs to…

#1 Primer: DermaQuest Perfecting Primer – This oil absorbing primer was made to minimize the appearance of fine line and wrinkles. It also creates a smooth flawless base for your foundation to glide and lay on. It is suggested for all skin types and is perfect for acne-prone clients as well. Apply to the skin with your fingers, blender, or a brush. IMG_3891

#2 Foundation: NEW* Dior Star Studio Makeup in 031 Sand– this is a brand new foundation that I am using on clients, it is a full coverage fluid and perfect for photography/shoots that are using artificial lighting. The Dior Star foundation is perfect for those who are in the spotlight and want to have that perfect flawless looking skin all the time. I have been a fan of Dior foundations for a while, but this one definitely blows the others out of the water with its brightening effects and long lasting durability. Applied to the skin with Beauty Blender \Cle-de-Peau-Correcteur-Visage-Concealer

Blemish coverage: The next step is for covering blemishes. My holy grail acne cover concealer is the Clea De Peau “Beige” OR depending on your skin tone. I apply this over the blemishes and lightly blend in with the flat concealer brush from same brand. These two products paired together cover anything seamlessly and no one will ever know anything was there in the first place! Yes they are expensive but worth every penny!

#3 Setting: LA Girl HD Pro Powder – Apply this with a puff or sponge to all the places that have been retouched with concealer/ wet foundation. It is important to do this immediately after to prevent creasing or build up. This powder is a Silica mineral powder so it is very finely milled and lightweight when applied.

#4 Concealer: Eve Pearl Salmon Conceal was used under the eyes to balance out any darkness and brighten up. You can apply this with your ring finger lightly under the eyes up to the temples. I then like to apply a brighter concealer over top, Tarte in “Light” is great to give that Kim Kardashian bright-eye look! Set this with the same powder.

#5 Blush: Laura Geller “Roseberry” – this mauve/pink shimmer blush is perfect to add a rosy hint to the cheeks and still stay looking natural. Apply with a medium powder brush in circular motion to the apples and up towards cheekbones. I focused on staying on the apples of the cheeks with her blush here. xMedium_Tan.jpg.pagespeed.ic.hIrDI_SCms xTANTODEEP.jpg.pagespeed.ic.b6iuB-urXJ

#6 Contour: Anastasia Beverly Hills contour powders in “Golden Peach” & “Nutmeg” were blended and used to create her perfected contour on her nose, forehead and cheekbones. If you have yet to try ABH contour powders, you are missing out. If you are new to contour and highlight, check out her site HERE

#7 Highlight: Hourglass Ambient “Mood Light” – this super soft pink highlight gives your skin the most natural yet glowing effect. For those who are a fan of the J-glow but don’t want to go overboard, Hourglass Ambient highlighters are perfect for you. Apply to all high points of the face that you want to stand out.

#8 Setting Spray: Last step is to set the face with a setting spray to hold your face makeup in place all day! Skindinavia No More Shine Spray will be your best friend when you need perfect makeup for photos, the last thing you need is a greasy looking face for the camera! Spray the face three times and fan with your hand, instant matte skin!

I hope you all enjoyed this quick makeup tutorial on how to get that perfect looking face makeup, I will be sharing part 2 soon…
