As a professional makeup artist I have learned so much working in and out of the studio and on photo shoots outdoors.
Here a few makeup tricks and tips I think you’ll enjoy doing!
Drinks on the beach 🏖 or at a beach bar or enjoying a beautiful sunset with your sweetie I know you want to look good! And maybe sexy too.
Prepping your bare eyelids with a smidge of petroleum jelly will turn powder shadows into a shimmery cream eyeshadow. It also helps powder eyeshadows last when hotter weather has arrived. Brides getting married outside love this trick too.
A creamy balm like SPF applied first and then a dash of powder blush on your finger…. Makes a lasting gorgeous glow blush look.
Don’t want your lips to fade and make the pigment also last longer? Apply a creamy balm on your lips first . Next add a swipe of color. Do not rub your lips 👄 together.
Want the definition of mascara without the run and raccoon look? Simply use a clear mascara or buy a tubing mascara like the brand Blinc it is an amazing mascara. Give it a whirl.
Summer is coming! Try and keep cool and look good with these tips.
It has been a busy few days getting ready for Chinese New Year 🧧 in my personal life and in my beauty business. I love celebrating the beauty of every single day!
Yesterday I did and featured a fun segment on TV 📺 chatting it up on all things lunar new year.
Chinese New year is a 15 day celebration I didn’t want another day to go by without sharing one of my beauty secrets… Asian Rice Powder.
It is a fierce and fabulous multi-tasking beauty product!
Looks like a square chocolate brownie only it’s white in color. It reduces shine on your T-zone and makes your makeup last longer. It also makes keeps your makeup shades from turning orange. You know what I mean? Sometimes people have issues with that from their body chemistry. Very frustrating! Their foundation colors, powder or blush turns a not so pretty darker and orange like hue.
It is an iconic beauty powder that is centuries old. Not a powder from Japan theater 🎭 or used by geisha’s. It’s light and lovely. In fact people love the delicate floral scent.
Years ago I turned my clients on to this! Especially brides-to-be, brides and bridal parties.
I am an all American girl that happens to be Eurasian and my husband says I am a Combination Platter off the Chinese Take Out Menu. People ALWAYS ask me what is my nationality. Even more when I moved from up North to sunny Florida. When I moved here for my husband I was so in love I forgave Florida for the HOT temperatures and the horrific humidity. But as time went by I came to the conclusion I hate the heat and my makeup melting. I also noticed brides and bridal parties hated it too. So, I pulled out my little box of love for my complexion and made them look amazing. This box is my makeup savior and go to. I have used it on my face since I was a teen and now on my clients for TV work, red carpet beauty moments,photo shoots and for my brides and bridal parties.
It is an Ancient Chinese secret handed down from generation to generation.
What is it?
A white looking brownie (yes like the Brownie we eat). It is a hard cake that becomes loose when applied with a powder brush.
It is feather light powder that makes your makeup last longer.
Makes your colors remain true especially when you have issues with your makeup turning colors and helps them remain true.
Great for oily skin and complexions with a bit of acne
Tones down shine!
Sets your makeup!
But wait there’s MORE!
When I make up my face or a client’s face and I accidentally put a bit more blush on or eye shadow too overpowering or doesn’t look right….I simply take a brush,dip into my rice powder and clean up,soften and blend it out.
Oh and not only does it look great on brides and photographs nicely. It also is great for women of a certain age who get steamy and hot flash. Calms the heat and the powder cools the skin with a soft matte finish.
If YOU or your client’s makeup is missing that little something or you crave all things Asian Beauty and or something new this is for YOU and to retail to your clients too!
I don’t think I could live without IT AND a gorgeous lipstick.
