I had a client who is a model recommend me a foundation she uses for her skin and has been delighted by also using it for her photo-shoots. I dropped by Sephora this past Saturday to appease her and bought a bottle of Makeup Forever HD Foundations. Two bottles I really purchased one for the foundation and one for contouring the face also. Makeup Forever foundations were created for the very latest high-definition technologies of the film and TV industry, ULTRA HD advanced formulas look invisible on 4K camera and to the naked eye. Perfect for the makeup pros. ULTRA HD foundation feels like a second skin, but still provides medium coverage, and the light-diffusing formula looks natural and makes skin look flawless and feel moisturized. Exclusive 4K Complex guarantees invisible, natural and comfortable makeup. The fluid texture blends in seamlessly and conceals imperfections to unify the skin’s texture. Great for all skin types, and features a full-range of shades to cover all skin-tones. The product worked very well for me. Give it a try my friends. But I will say it is very costly $42.00 per bottle.
In Florida this time of the year we are talking about the beach and the ever growing fashions of swimwear. Doing a swimwear shoot the other day I was in need of some contouring for the body for my model. She is very athletic and likes to see her muscles enhanced for her portraits.. Professional models will ask for this especially when wearing the smallest of the small bikinis. Contouring the body is a no brainer. What ever is indented is a shadow, what ever protrudes is a highlight. So in knowing this simple method of contouring I prefer to use the MAC bronzers for the task.
To task I used MAC Bronzing Powder. Switch the settings from cool to warm, as Bronzing Powder takes you from finely spun gold with soft pearl to true bronze with a matte finish. This subtly tinted powder gives skin sheer, natural color and highlights. Perfect for enhancing skin tone, providing a natural, sun-kissed look; or accentuating a tan. Formulated to give a smooth, even application on all skin types. Features specially designed packaging.
Contains light-reflecting bronzing pigments
Provides a natural, sun-kissed look
For a wide variety of skin tones
Very good product to use and I recommend it for all body and muscle sculpting. The product stays were it is placed and does not fade. Bravo! Depending on the brush size you can apply lightly, or heavy. Lovely for contrasting.
Working with eyelash’s is a number one importance when preparing a model for a photo-shoot. I highly recommend Eylure for all my work and for yours also. This is a very durable product and very natural at its best. The glue is phenomenal. And drys very, very clear. better than DUO! And the lashes themselves hold up for continuous wear. You can find this product in ULTA. If you need Volume, Definition, Dramatic, Length etc they have it. All you have to do is curl your lash’s and apply your liner and then your flash lash’s you will be ready to go.
Lots and Lots to pick from and a lovely array of designs! Eylure is the world’s favorite eyelash brand when it comes to backstage for the runways. This product is also cost effective about $5.00 per package with glue also not bad at all. And with Eylure all lashes are reusable! The best guaranteed quality lashes available in the eyelash market. Eylure is also 100% high quality human hair lashes that most professionals use and prefer.
A very creamy product and you will not need much per application. I would almost say this product is also very much like water, be careful with the amount you use. Especially if you are doing heavy contouring and highlighting to the face. Shake that bottle first and mix the product around. I always do my color corrections first then apply the foundation. Lovely tone and good coverage to the skin. Good product to use and also go to Make Up For Ever.com and apply for your professional discount for all trained professionals.
Developed specifically for the film and TV industry’s most advanced technology, Ultra HD Liquid Foundation creates a naturally flawless complexion—on and off camera. Completely invisible under the latest, super-focused 4k lens, this revolutionary foundation features uniquely-coated pigments that provide medium to build-able coverage with an even lighter weight, second-skin texture that looks just like skin. This lighter weight formula delivers the very same flawless results as before when applied with a flat foundation brush in a tap and stretch motion.
One of the best products I use in my makeup case and this product has a lot of versatility. That product is called. DenTek Easy Brush, this product was made for flossing but I use it for numerous tasks when doing makeup in the salon or for editorial work.
This product was made for flossing, but I use it for styling the eyebrows, applying mascara to the bottom lash’s and also the upper lash’s. It’s fine teeth can get into the small spaces of the eyes and applying mascara is ever so easy. I also like to use them to prime the lips to take off any chapped skin and to also moisturize the lips before applying lip stick.
Just apply a little Vaseline to your brush, and gently scrub the lips. I like to do this first before adding any makeup to the face. When I am ready I will gently use a wet wipe to clean the lips of any flaky skin. And then apply my lip stick!
