Natural Makeup: Soft Beauty

Hello beauties!
I am writing you today from the beautiful Tahoe! I wanted to do a fun California coast road trip before my busy work months! Today I am sharing with you this super soft makeup look! I created this for a bridal shoot a while back and loved the outcome. This style of makeup is actually perfect for those searching for an everyday look, it is very light and super easy to achieve. I used a BB Cream instead of foundation and a translucent powder instead of foundation powder. Learn more about this very natural beauty look below…

American Beauty: hooded eyes

Britney is the all around American beauty. 
Blonde hair, perfect skin and beautiful features. 
I enhanced her natural beauty for a book cover photo shoot a couple weeks ago and couldn’t wait to share this look with you all. I wanted to keep the style of her makeup innocent, fresh and light, So, I kept the eyes fairly simple but still eye-opening. Britney has ‘hooded’ eyes , just like the famous Blake Lively. This is a common eye shape where people have trouble knowing how to apply makeup to them without making the eyes appear smaller. Today I will be sharing tips on how to make your eyes stand out even with this at times difficult eye shape, and how to create a flawless face with Estee Lauders Double Wear foundation and other great products! 
Enjoy
Women with hooded eyes or “bedroom eyes” as they are sometimes known for their secretive look, they have little or virtually no lid space to work with. How do you know if you have hooded eyes?  If you can’t see your eyelid when your eyes are open, then you’ve got hooded lids.  You’re in good company – Blake Lively, Renee Zellwegger, Jennifer Lawrence, and Catherine Zeta-Jones are just a few celebrities that adapt their makeup look to suit their sultry eyes. The challenge with applying makeup to hooded eyes is that it’s very easy to make your eyes look small or closed off. With this look below, learn how to accentuate your hooded eye shape!  
Products used:
and one face spray of Kett Airbrush. 
Cream contour products are much easier to blend as they melt into the skin.
Giving a natural sheer-medium coverage, M.A.C sculpting creams have a superb range of colours to suit from the fairest to the darkest skin tones. This shade is best for blondes and girls with medium tones.

Fresh and Flawless Makeup

When it comes to event makeup many people get the impression that its always high fashion and glamorous with false lashes and more. As this can be true to some extent, the ‘nearly there’ look has not gone out of style just yet. More and more you will see girls with an almost ‘naked’ look to their makeup, but really its just how it is applied. The truth, it seems, is not so much that “less is more” as that “more is less.” The objective is to let your skin show through and to look like a more flattering version of yourself. That is exactly what I did when miss Emily walked into my room. She was already so naturally beautiful I felt as if i didn’t need to do anything to her look, so with minor fixes I gave her a effortlessly flawless look for the photo shoot. This style of makeup is beautiful for any type of occasion, especially for the most natural brides to be!
 Hope you enjoy…

Get this natural look: Foundation
The foundation for this look was created with Airbrush, but I will list how to do it as if I didn’t have an airbrush machine so you all can achieve it! 
Let me introduce to you all the ERA Face Spray-on foundation! This product has been one of my favorites for years, it is one that I go to when I am not using airbrush machines. ERA is made for everyone, it is an oil-free foundation that doesn’t dry your skin or break you out. This foundation was originally created for burnt victims who had sensitive skin. With this said, this foundation is infused with Vitamin C and E, Botanicals, Aloe Vera and Chamomile. The product is lightweight, but the coverage is amazing. You may either spray the foundation on or use it with a brush. It is long lasting, wear & water-resistant and it looks like skin!  ERA shades are determined by your skin undertone and the normal shade you are: light, medium, tan. 
They are true to color and match skin very easily!
