Orange blusher

Though 2018 was all about contouring and gold shimmers, as we head into Autumn 2019, we are seeing more people boast orange cheeks. Helping the eyes and lips pop, a simple orange blusher or highlighter can do wonders for brightening up the whole face.

MAC’s ‘Bright Response’ powder is a huge favourite of ours!

Orange eyeliner

Feline eyes are still a staple makeup look. However, on-trend MUAs are getting creative with colour, using orange liquid eyeliner to make the eye the key signifier. Orange eyeliner works particularly well on women with green eyes.

Orange lipstick and lip liner

Finding a lipstick shade that you like can be a real task. Where some can make lips look small others can make teeth look dull; it really is a minefield.

If you are struggling to find the right colour, then you may want to explore orange lipsticks. In our opinion, the bolder the orange, the better, with lippies with a hint of gold great for women with darker skin tones. Enhancing tans while giving the face an uplifting, fun feel, you simply cannot go wrong with orange lipstick.

Book an MUA to get the latest look

If you are intrigued as to how you can blend some oranges into your look then you will need a makeup artist to ensure your makeup is flawless.

Concealer Application

Common Questions About Concealer Application

While famous make-up artists make contouring and blemish cover-ups look rather easy in tutorials, the truth is, concealer is a bit of a minefield. With so many brands, textures, shades, and application processes out there, it can be hard to know where to start when getting ready for a night on the tiles.

This week, a famous make-up artist, Morgane Martini, shared his concealer tricks and hacks. Detailing how best to conceal lines, dark shadows, and generally uplift different areas of the face, the Marc Jacobs Beauty Ambassador gives us all the details we need to create iconic glam looks on ourselves.

When to put concealer on

Where we tend to think of concealer as the first layer of make-up, Martini advises that we wait until after we have fully applied our foundation to add on concealer. Explaining why he says ‘foundation is supposed to even out the whole base first and then you apply concealer where you need more coverage’.

Where does concealer go?

Think concealer should just go under the eyes? Well, according to this MUA, you are wrong! As well as applying under the eyes, he recommends putting concealer on ‘smile lines, chin and centre of the forehead just above the brows’. This is said to brighten up your whole face.

Can a concealer be a foundation?

Martini says, if you find a concealer that is a great texture for your skin, there is no reason why you cannot apply it as if it were a foundation. Who knew?

How do you apply concealer?

Where some MUA’s swear by the brush, others say you can’t go wrong with a clean sponge. However, when it comes to the concealer application process, Martini believes that brushes, sponges, and your finger all have their purposes.

“If I want more coverage I usually use a sponge because you can buff the texture into the skin really nicely. If I am being very delicate I use my fingers and some brushes. I love a little round fluffy brush to apply concealer, especially for areas like under eye and sides of the nose” he says.

So, there you have it; top concealer tips from one of the biggest make-up pros!
