Do you use Brushes?
Here is thought, imagine using a sponge to apply your liquid foundation? Think about the bacteria build up on that sponge if you do not clean it and then re apply. There is no real benefit in using a sponge or makeup pad to apply your makeup.
Brushes give a more flawless and smooth finish. You can pat the skin and blend with a brush to create a makeup finish that will last all day long. Brushes come in synthetic and natural hair so if you wash them once a month you wont have a build up of bacteria. They absorb less product than what a sponge would. Your saving product and $$$.
If you want to know more, I provide makeup workshops or one on one lessons to teach you how to apply makeup the correct way. I also can give you some tips on where you can purchase cheap, professional brushes.
This is a new brush by Arbonne. It is Amazing!! I used it last week to apply my loose powder and I was surprised by the way the powder sat on my skin. It is like a buffer, smooth over brush that makes you look so flawless.
Check out my Arbonne website to see more brushes.
Please Contact me if you need any more info.
Bye guys 😉

I collaborated with a photographer to organise a photo shoot with this young, beautiful lady. We all met online and we both wanted to work together to get some great makeup shots for our portfolios. A real model that has talent is hard to find.
We shot in a park in Thirroul, NSW and I did the makeup at my studio. We were wanting to achieve a “Formal makeup” look with the formal dress and shoes. I will post a close of the makeup below.
There really is no such a thing as a “Formal makeup” look. You can do whatever you wish for your makeup. Think about what lip colours will suit the dress? What skin tone do you have? Eye colour? There is no right or wrong and you will want to look your best. Work with your features and try to enhance them. A purple dress doesn’t necessarily mean purple lips or eyes. Keep it simple.
I did use Arbonne makeup for the base, such as the foundation, powder and the compact bronzer (my fav) I used Napoleon Perdis loose dust eye shadows. The base of the eyes were a lilac/soft pink tone. I did put on some luscious lashes to make the eyes pop. A simple light pink lip lacquer on the lips to give some shine. It all came together really well. Check out a close up picture below.
The shoot was perfect and the photos can only speak for themselves.
Happy Formals. 😉
