How to choose the right foundation: my tips

Hi, beautiful women!

Hope you are doing great and regularly take some time to take care of yourselves, washing your face every morning and evening, putting all fantastic hydrating creams and eye creams! Don’t forget to drink a lot of water, eat fruit and vegetables and do sports. Do everyday something pleasant for yourself, like and accept yourself as all this helps us to be even more beautiful.

Today I wanted to give you some tips on how to choose the right foundation. First of all you need to know your skin type: dry, combination or oily. To choose the colour it’s always important to try it on your neck and go outside, if there is natural light, and see the colour: if the stain remains the colour isn’t yours, if it becomes even and uniform with your neck colour, the colour suits you. Some people tend to have their face more tanned than their neck as the neck is always in shadow, but if we want to have a nice effect and a even colour it should be similar to our neck’s colour: you can create a delicate tanned effect using bronzers and a little bit of blush.

Then, you have to you know your skin type: if your face eeasily becomes shiny during the day, probably you have oily or combination skin. In this case mattifying long-lasting foundations are for you: if you have some solar stains, redness or acne choose foundations that give nice medium coverage such asAll Nighter” by Urban Decay, “Matissime” by Givenchy, “Lasting Silk” by Armani, “Everlasting” by Clarins or “Forever” by Dior. Some people may prefer “Double Wear” by Estee Lauder, but I prefer to add it to other foundations as I personally like to see flawless skin, but not a mask.

If your skin is dry, sensitive and gets red easily, you should choose a radiant and luminous finish. Here there are your foundations: “Teint Miracle” by Lancome, “Tru Radiance And Skin Illusion” by Clarins, “Luminous Silk” by Armani, “Ultra HD” by Make up Foverer and “Teint Couture and Photo Perfexion” by Givenchy. Some of them have UV filter and give medium beautiful coverage. I personally tested all these foundations when I was doing gym and during hot and humid Italian summer.

There are some very lucky people that have normal and beautiful skin and don’t like using foundations: in this case, on special occasions they can add some foundation into their day cream creating BB cream, which will give a nice and uniform colour and radiance to the skin. They can use BB creams and these liquid foundations: “Next to Nothing” and “Face and Body by Mac and “Vitalumiere Aqua” by Chanel.

Try always to find the right product that makes your skin feel comfortable: if you start to have some uncomfortable feelings then stop using the product. A good idea is trying the product before buying it.

I hope these tips were helpful! I will try to write more articles about my experience of various products.

How to become a makeup artist: some useful tips

They say that, if you choose a job you love, you will never have to work a day in your life. It's absolutely true, as if you fulfill your life with pleasure and passion your clients will feel your energy and if you love what you are doing.

If you want to be a makeup artist probably you have been attracted by art and colours since you were a child, you love painting, you are sensitive to beauty, sociable and love people. If you read some stories of famous makeup artists and hair stylists, you’ll figure out they had this passion since childhood as they loved creating something on their family members: Kevin Aucoin, for example, tested make up on his sister; Pat Mcgrath was strongly influenced by her mother that experimented with colours, pigments and textures to create more options of make up for dark skins.

For some people it’s a little bit easier, for some less, but usually one has basic qualities and capacities a makeup artist needs since his early age. It’s very important to feel inside what you want to do and follow it, as when we do something we love we always succeed in it.

When you found out that you want to follow a of makeup artist career, you need to figure out the best school where to get your basic knowledge, where you will study the theory, the basics, do a lot of practice and get more into make up’s world. Now with the internet, Instagram, social media and reviews one can choose the best school where apart from studying they offer a lot of practice such as taking part in photography shootings, runway shows and collaboration with different professionals.

My tip for everyone: you should remember that a makeup artist needs to be creative, but it’s not all; as you may develop your creative skills, you need to know that choosing this type of a career you become an entrepreneur, so you need to develop also you communicative, time-management, marketing and goal-oriented skills.

Being a great listener, psychologist, team member it’s also a part of this job.

Another tip I have for future makeup artists is you need to understand what you like most: weddings, fashion, theatre or television, music industry. When you know exactly what you like, it’s easier to set goals and reach them.

After finishing a makeup school don’t ever feel as if you've made it: being a makeup artist means continue learning, updating skills and studying. Do a lot of practice, study people's facial features, make them feel beautiful being friendly and sensitive. Your mission is improving their self-esteem using make up as a therapy.

These were my tips: hope they will be helpful!

My experience at Mauro Gala's fashion runway

Hi, beautiful ladies! This time I would like to share with you this wonderful experience I had in Residenza Lavernale→, situated in Rome on the top of the Aventine Hill and surrounded by emerald greenery.

There was a beautiful runaway fashion show organised by the managers of the venue Janike Catton and Marzia di Biase, in the magic Residenza Lavernale's private garden. A stylish, peaceful, unique location in the heart of Rome where different events such as fashion shows, photo shoots, weddings and destination weddings take place. 

A haute couture and true feminine elegance magician, Mauro Gala→, was presenting his collection of cocktail, wedding and ceremony dresses. All fabrics were very soft –chiffon and silk, in fair and pastel colours – so together with my team I decided to do on the models the same look enhancing their natural beauty: fresh and luminous skin using radiant finish foundation; highlighters, natural shades lipsticks, neutral shades eyeshadows, peachy and pink blush and single false lashes on previously curved eyelashes and moisturizing make up setting spray.

 
 

It was really a wonderful day: it’s always like this when you work with pleasant and professional people.

Hope you like the results!
