Friday Focus - Redheads !

This blog post is dedicated to redheads, whether natural or by choice. Makeup and red hair is so much fun. Many natural redheads have fair skin and freckles which I just love. My personal choice is to go with a sheer makeup coverage, perhaps a tinted moisturizer to allow the freckles to show through, but some redheads may want to have a more pigmented foundation to blend and hide the freckles. Avoid going to dark with the foundation because it may begin to appear unnatural. Using a cheek stain will help bring up the natural blush color and look fresh. I don't suggest bronzers for fair skin as they tend to not match the skin tones of redheads. Neutral eye shadows are the best bet for fair skin and red hair.

Aqua Eyes are waterproof, smudge-proof, and fade-proof and can do double duty as a vibrant eyeshadow. Formulated to glide on effortlessly and withstand the most extreme conditions, it stays put on eyelids without melting for precise application and inte

Covering Tattoos for Weddings & Special Events

Covering tattoos effectively for weddings can be time consuming.  It takes a lot of products, several hours and a ton of patience.  The first step is understanding that although  I will do my best to camouflage the tattoo, it will never look like you didn't get tattooed.  It will be undetectable in photos and, to those not looking for it, the tattoo will be unnoticeable in person with a professional cover application.   Using proper, quality products is a necessary step in wedding day tattoo cover, as is having reasonable expectations.  It's not a quick or easy process and, brides wanting to cover their tattoo(s) should realize they will need to pay appropriately for quality tattoo cover services for their wedding day.   before As I briefly mentioned, tattoo cover is a lengthy, precise project.  I begin by correcting areas of the tattoo using lighter and complimentary colors. Once the colors have been muted, I lightly apply a special foundation product.  It m
