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

Bronzed & Peachy: Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette

 Hello loves!
I am in love with the Chocolate Bar palettes from Too Faced! They each have a perfect combination of shimmery and matte shadows! I wanted to create a cat eye paired with lots of peach tones {my favorite}. I went for a peach cut-crease and glimmer lid using this fabulous palette and a few other new products I am enjoying! I am wearing the Lily Lashes for this look in the style “Tehran”. These are a new style of lashes for me, they are wispy and long, and the band is super comfortable and not too thick!
