Corso di self make up a Roma: una giornata dedicata al trucco!

Ciao bellissime!

Oggi voglio raccontarvi della lezione di self-make up che ho tenuto qualche tempo fa nel mio studio. Mica penserete che si tratti solo di studio, vero? Ebbene, no! Le lezioni di self-make up sono soprattutto un’occasione per divertirsi e imparare a diventare ancora più belle e sicure di noi stesse!

Durante la lezione le mie bellissime allieve Olga e Alexandra hanno scoperto come fare un trucco da tutti i giorni e come trasformarlo in trucco da sera, come fare il contouring e a che cosa serve, come fare bene la base e coprire le occhiaie, come correggere la forma delle sopracciglia e come far risaltare gli occhi. Nell'atmosfera accogliente di casa ci siamo divertite tantissimo e abbiamo concluso la nostra lezione con un bel brindisi!

Sabrina’s wedding in Umbria (and some tips on wedding organization in Italy!)

Hi, beautiful ladies!

In this article I would like to tell you about my client's Sabrina. She was born in the USA, but her mother is originally from Italy. She met her future husband in the US but he is from Rome, so what is better than getting married in Italy? It is so romantic, especially in Umbria with its medieval castles and towns.

Sabrina contacted me in September, as they were coming to look for the venues and in the meanwhile organised the prewedding photoshoot with great photographers Andrea & Federica (www.andreatappo.com). We organised the trial earlier on that day, so Sabrina had nice day make up and loose wavy half updo ready for the photoshoot in Rome.

I would recommend all the brides who are coming from abroad to get to know your photographer and your make up artist in this way, to have nice photos as a result. There are so many professionals nowadays online, but nothing is better than face-to-face contact!

So, then the guys went back to the States and we kept in touch with Sabrina.

They chose a very particular date for the wedding, 14 August: everyone who comes to Italy should know that 14-15 August in Italy is called Ferragosto holidays, when everybody leaves on vacation or stays outside the city, or with their family; that's why to find professionals available during those days you need to book them much in advance and sometimes the price of the service is higher.

The wedding was organised in beautiful and romantic Castello di Rosciano (www.castellodirosciano.com). It was an international wedding with the guests from all over the world. The day before there was a welcoming dinner and Sabrina decided to have another trial and have beautiful evening make up (we went for nice smokey eyes in earthy shades) and hair (we did loose Boho waves hair). She looked amazing in her long floral dress.

On the wedding day, the atmosphere was great and relaxing. The bride and the bridesmaids were having fun sipping some Prosecco. I brought my team make up artist and hairstylist to prepare the bridesmaids on the wedding day, so I did Sabrina's bridal hair and make up and her mother's hair and make up. It was wonderful working in this relaxing atmosphere and that's why the results were great!

You may see it on the great photos of Andrea & Federica (www.andreatappo.com).

Even if a bit worried at the beginning, my bride looked very beautiful in her stylish dress and her glowy bridal make up; hollywood wavy hair suited so much to it!

When you organise a wedding in Italy, especially in the middle of August, try to think about everything much in advance: choose a great wedding planner who will save you nerves and time, choose thoroughly all the professionals and make sure they work already a lot with couples from abroad, they speak great English and have really modern style!

Good luck for everybody who is going to get married in Italy and don’t hesitate to drop us a line if you need any information!

7 best Summer foundations: flawless skin even with hot weather!

 

Hello beauties! Today I’d like to share my experience with different foundations on Summer.

Many people don’t use foundation in summer as they don’t want look overdone, especially in hot and humid climate when the face sweats a lot. But sometimes we go out and don’t have our flawless skin days, and a little foundation can help us.

Hot weather and humidity may challenge our makeup, but if we choose the right product we can be flawless even on Summer! There are foundations with lightweight formulas though long-lasting, so you can easily find a tip that suits you.

Here are the best foundations for Summer in my opinion.


Face and Body liquid foundation by MAC

M.A.C Studio Face & Body is a water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides natural coverage for face and body as well moisturise the skin. Ideal for all skin types, MAC Studio provides very light sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend formula.

Ideal for people who like BB creams and don’t like foundations, though during the day the skin may become shiny and it’s better to have a translucent powder with you. It surely doesn't suit those who like coverage even medium. You can mix this foundation with any other more dense formulas foundations to make them more liquid.


Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

This summer foundation enhances your natural glow, gives a sheer coverage and lasts all day. Great on all skin types. Even if you layer the foundation for more coverage the final result will always be very light. Ideal for those who prefer a little bit more of coverage.

 

 

 

 


Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup SPF 15

This Chanel foundation is no-comedogenic, which means it does not clog pores and has been extensively tested. Included in the formula is SPF 15, it is oil free. It gives a natural youthful looking look to your skin. It looks very skin like.

It’s very watery and you need to shake it very well before using it. It blends very well, for dry skin can be used without powder. Oily skin needs a translucent powder.


BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

This product is a hydrating gel cream tint, a tinted moisturizer, a BB and a CC cream. It keeps summer skin looking and feeling great, it has an SPF 30. As with any great summer foundation this one can be layered for additional coverage but it contains an antioxidant.

It has nourishing and hydrating substances, enriched with electrolytes and marine botanicals to give radiance to the skin. It’s better to apply it with your fingers. It’s more suitable for people who like dewy and radiant finish.


Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition

This foundation has a semi-matte finish, it perfectly diffuses light from all directions, that's why skin looks radiant but not too much glowy.

It feels very light on the skin and blends very well. It’s very liquid, but is buildable if you prefer more coverage.

 

 


Becca Aqua Luminous Foundation

This foundation is ideal for those who don’t have a lot imperfections on their skin, as it gives a real-skin finish. It is a bit similar to Bobbi Brown serum foundation. It’s very sheer and blends out very well, the glow it leaves is radiant but not shimmery, dewy but not sweaty or waxy.

Aqua Luminous does not give you a full coverage but it has a fabulous, juicy glow and it sits well on the skin. I’d say that it is more suitable for those with normal to dry skin. Oily skins will need a powder. It surely gives you more coverage than a tinted moisturiser.

 


Light Wonder by Charlotte Tilbury

If you don’t need a lot of coverage this is a great water based foundation with a dewy finish.
It leaves your skin very radiant and dewy but also evens out uneven skintones. It lasts a decent amount of hours and with the right skincare routine can be suitable for all skin types. Though it is buildable and you can achieve from light to medium coverage.

 

 

 


One more tip from a make up artist who is in constant search of perfect foundations: before buying any foundation, ask for a free sample and try it, feel how you feel it on your skin, how it lasts and if the result is the one that makes you feel flawless. And that's all, beauties... I hope my tips were useful!
