  • Glamorous 1940s Bridal Makeup Tutorial

    This look is really glamorous and perfect for the brides that love a dramatic eye… I don’t think you should really hold back on the lips and cheeks either! You know they say you should only accentuate two of your features ( lips & eyes/cheeks & eyes/cheeks & lips), well I don’t think that really applies to this look! 

    Heres how to go glam 40s without going OTT!


    To create a good base for your eye shadow, apply a cream shadow from the eyelid to brow bone. This neutralises the eyelid and helps shadows and pigments stay put.

    I used MAC Paint Pot in Painterly £15.50

    For this era the palette was very soft with a hint of colour especially pinks and pastel tones, so I swept a pastel pink across the eyelid.

    I used MAC Paint Pot in Let’s Skate £15.50

    With a blending eye shadow brush apply a berry toned powder eye shadow to highlight the crease and give depth to the eyes. I also swept a small amount under the bottom lashes.

    I used MAC Eye shadow in Cranberry £13.00

    Crown Brush ‘Deluxe Crease Brush’ £3.49

    Long lashes were key in the 1940s as they are today. Use an eyelash curler in a ‘pumping’ motion to curl the lashes to make them look more dramatic.

    Apply mascara on the top and bottom lashes generously in black.

    I Used Maybelline Great Lash Mascara £4.99

    Models Own Eyelash Curler £5.99

    Now apply your blush in a semi circle motion in a pinky rose tone to compliment the 40s palette

    I used MAC Well Dressed Powder Blush £18.00

    Real Techniques Blush Brush £9.99

    1940s makeup tutorial

    Exaggerate the natural lip line by applying the lipstick slightly over your natural lip line and cupids bow making the lips big and voluptuous. The lip colour of choice was more pink-toned than the reds of previous eras.

    I used MAC Mineralize Glass Lip gloss in Fashion Perk £19.00

    The emphasis of this look is all about the bold feline flick eyeliner, full dramatic lashes and natural eyebrows, it’s such a chic style that oozes that ‘Mad Men’ coolness. The skin should be kept minimalistic with a fresh dewy finish and back in the 60s the lips were normally kept nude – sometimes blocked out with foundation. For this retro bridal look, I wanted to give it a modern twist by adding a pop of colour to the lips with a matt pastel pink lipstick.


    Create a neutral eye shadow base by applying a matt cream eye shadow. This helps prime the eye for the eyeliner application.

    I used MAC Paint Pot in Painterly £15.50

    1940s bridal makeup tutorial

    
Using a cream eyeliner and a fine eyeliner brush apply the eyeliner first from the outer edge of the top lash in a straight line. Extend this line by approximately 1 cm, then do the same on the other eye.

    I used Maybelline Black Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner £7.99

    Crown Brush Mini Eyeliner Brush £1.69

    1960s makeup tutorial

    Sweep the liner along the lash line until you meet the end point, filling in any gaps.

    With this technique less is more! Use a tiny bit at a time and keep adding to build up the size of your kitten flick. Use too much at once and it can get messy and you can have uneven sized eyeliner flicks.

    1960s makeup tutorial

    Using a strip lash that compliments this style (I like to use a lash that gets longer towards to outer edges to give a real doe eyed effect) firstly fit the lash to your natural lash line, and trim the access from the outer corner of the strip.

    I used Ardell Demi Wispies False Eyelashes £5.49

    Duo Striplash Adhesive ‘Dark Tone’ £8.39

    Apply eyelash glue across the band and wait until it becomes tacky.

    how to apply strip lashes

    Using tweezers to hold the lash, press the lash into your upper lash line and hold into place until the glue has dried.

    To finish this look, add a pop of colour to the lips to give a modern twist.

  • Swoon-Worthy 1970s Boho Bridal Makeup Tutorial

  • 1970s Boho Bridal Makeup Tutorial

    This is a great look for brides that prefer a more natural bohemian feel to their makeup and definitely one of 2015’s key summer trends. The main focus is on the eyes, and although the shadow is subtle the soft earthy tones buffed into the socket finished with strip lashes give a real doe-eyed effect.  The skin should be kept fresh with a light weight foundation and bronzer to add that beachy sun kissed feel. 


    Start by applying a fawn toned shadow to the eyelid.

    I used MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork £15.50

    The brush I used was Crown Brush Firm Shadow £4.59

    Eyeliner was another important tool in 70s makeup but to keep it more natural apply a brown cream liner along the lash line and then soften with the eyeshadow brush, extending it a little towards the outer lash line.

    I used Maybelline Gel Liner in Brown £7.99

    how to do 70s boho bridal makeup

    Build up the eye shadow colour but try to keep to natural and earthy tones. Blend a deeper taupe from the centre of the eyelid to the outer corner.

    how to do 70s boho bridal makeup

    Next blend a deeper shade of brown into the socket line and a little under the bottom lashes.

    I Used Seventeen ‘Peep Show’ Palette (no longer available). A great alternative is Clarins Eye Quartet Mineral Palette in ‘Forest’ £32.00

    The socket brush was Crown Brush Deluxe Crease £3.49

    how to do 70s boho bridal makeup
    TIP: Build up the colour slowly as you don’t want the eye shadow to look too heavy.

    Using a strip lash that compliments this style, normally I would opt for natural looking lash that is thicker at the base (for a Brigitte Bardot look) and has a natural finish. Fit the lash to your natural lash line, and trim the access from the outer corner of the strip.

    I used Ardell Demi Wispies False Eyelashes £5.49

    Duo Striplash Adhesive ‘Dark Tone’ £8.39

    Using tweezers to hold the lash, press the lash into your upper lash line and hold into place until the glue has dried.

    how to apply strip lashes

    Instead of blush opt for a bronzer to create a tanned look. Use a natural-looking bronzer to achieve the effect as this gives the skin a healthy glow.

    I used Illamasqua Bronzing Duo £26.00

    Real Techniques Blush Brush £9.99

    how to do 70s boho bridal makeup

    Apply the bronzer anywhere on the face where the sun would naturally hit it. Sweep it from the forehead, to the cheeks, a little across the nose and then down to the chin.

    how to do 70s boho bridal makeup
    TIP: The soft shape you create should be like you are tracing the number 3, but if it starts to look like the number 3, its too heavy and you have applied way too much bronzer!

    To give that real fresh feel, finish the look with a nude lipstick or a frosted translucent gloss. For that real Boho look avoid lip liner and keep the lips as natural as possible.

    I Used Illamasqua Sheer Lip Gloss in Opulent £16.50

  • Dazzling 1920s Bridal Makeup Tutorial

  • Step-by-Step 1920s Bridal Makeup Tutorial

    The 20s is one of my favourite eras when it comes to make up as I love a bolder lip and a bit of sparkle. It’s a great look for winter brides and if you don’t feel brave enough to wear a really dark lipstick opt for a lip stain instead for a softer look. 

    Here is my simple step-by-step tutorial including the products I used to create this look.


    First apply a nude matt cream shadow, from the lash line up to the brow bone to create a neutral base.

    I used MAC Paint Pot in Painterly £15.50

    1920s bridal makeup tutorial

    Using a champagne cream shadow apply over the eyelid, stopping just above the socket.

    I used Vintage Selection Paint Pot by MAC £15.50

    TIP: To create better adhesion for loose glitter use a cream eye shadow

    Cover the cheeks with a tissue to prevent the loose glitter from dropping onto your cheeks and getting messy and for a more contemporary look keep the glitter simple!

    I used MAC Glitter ‘Reflects Pearl’ £17.00

    Line the lips with a darker lip liner to create a precise shape and this will also prevent the lipstick from ‘bleeding’.

    I used MAC Lip Pencil in Spice £12.50

    Tip: To keep your lipstick lasting longer, colour in your lips with the lip pencil

    Using a lip brush apply a berry toned lipstick which is key for the 20s trend

  • Illamasqua Loose Powder Review

  • Illamasqua Loose Powder Review….

    It’s that time of year and a lot of things in my kit are running on empty. One of my favourite products is a translucent powder from another brand and sadly one item that I needed to buy. I don’t know about other makeup artists but I do get comfortable with products, I buy the same when I need to replenish my kit and I don’t tend to branch out. If its not broke why fix it? Right?

    After reading some fantastic reviews on Illamasqua’s website for the Loose Powder I thought I would give it a go. I felt that if it wasn’t as good as the translucent powder I already use it would find itself in my ‘surplus to requirements’ drawer.

    I used it today on myself and oh lordy, I am a little bit in love! It is so similar to the one I already use but if its possible, its even finer, so concealing and diffusing any imperfections whilst leaving my skin a nice amount of matt. It also smells amazing!

    illamasqua loose powder review
    illamasqua loose powder review

    On myself and especially when I am working with brides I prefer to use a loose translucent powder that is so fine it diffuses fine lines, large pores, mattifies the skin whilst holding everything in place (i’m not asking for much am I?). The Illamasqua Loose Powder certainly ticked all of these boxes without my skin feeling weighed down with heavy product. I think that when it comes to creating flawless base for my brides (or anyone for that matter) face powder should be invisible, it should be there for setting and finishing and not to create another layer of product so in my opinion translucent loose powder is the way to go!

    Here are a coupe of shots to illustrate how my skin looks today, (my skin is quite oily with fine lines and large pores) so its nice to see how well these products have lasted! The products I am using are: Foundation, Concealer, Setting powder, Bronzer, Mascara & Eyebrow Gel.

    illamasqua loose powder review

    Here is a close up after I applied the translucent powder.

    Fresh faced with wet hair! You can see an overall look of my skin after applying the powder at 8am.

    This is me at 4 o'clock. Skin looking fabulous, I haven't reapplied any makeup and my pores are still covered, skin is semi-matt and makeup in place! WIN!

     

     I can’t wait to use this on my bride and her bridal party tomorrow!!

     

     

     

  • Find Your True Skin Tone

  • To Find your true skin tone is one of the most important things you can do to achieve a flawless complexion. If you don’t know your skin tone, don’t worry: here are some easy ways to find out!

    What’s Your Type?

    Your skin tone can easily be assessed just by observing it after you’ve been in the sun. At one end of the spectrum, if your skin tends to burn very easily without tanning, you have pale or ivory skin; on the other end of the spectrum, mahogany and darker skin types will tan quickly without burning. In the middle, light brown or olive skin burns sometimes but achieves a gradual tan.

    Of course, remember that no matter what part of the spectrum you’re on, you should always wear sunscreen when heading outside! Just because you might not burn easily, it doesn’t mean the penetrating rays aren’t harmful.

    Are you Hot or Cold?

    Your skin’s undertone influences so much about your image: your foundation choices, colors that work well with your skin, and metals that you should wear when the need for jewellery shopping strikes.

    There are three undertones: cool, warm and neutral. If your undertone is cool, the veins on your wrist look blue, your skin has the tendency to turn pink after you are in the sun and it also burns easily. Choosing a foundation for a cool undertone is about picking a product that has a slightly blue, red or pink tinge so it will work with your skin. When wearing jewellery, you probably look your best with silver or platinum pieces.

    On the other hand, a warm undertone has veins on the wrist that look green and skin will turn brown in the sun. Wearing gold jewellery looks great on warm undertones. If this applies to you, you want a foundation that has a yellowish or golden tinge to it to flatter your complexion.

    Stuck in the Middle

    If your skin isn’t warm or cold, you could have a neutral tone. You might have veins that appear both blue and green, and you probably suit both gold and silver jewellery. A neutral shade of foundation often works best.

    When applying foundation, the last thing you want is to end up with stripes or makeup that doesn’t match your skin tone. Even if you know what your skin tone is, you should always test foundation properly. You can do this with the use of a Q-tip. Dab it into a foundation tester and then apply it to the middle of your jawline. If the color seems to vanish into your skin, you’ve found the perfect color match.

    Test the Tone

    If you’re still unsure about your skin tone, try this test:

    • Stand in front of the mirror.
    • Swipe your hair away from your face and tie it up so that it isn’t going to get in the way.
    • Take a beige and a white item of clothing and hold them in front of your face one at a time.
    • Which color looks better against your skin? If you tend to look better against the white, then you have a warm undertone. If beige is your color, then you have cooler undertones.

    Make a Splash with the Right Color

    Now that you know more about your skin tone, what colors work with it? If you don’t take your skin tone in consideration when choosing the colors you want to wear, this can cause them to clash against your skin.

    So, here’s a quick guide in choosing the most flattering shades:

    • Warm-toned skin tends to look good in colors that you would call warm, such as yellow, orange, as well as earthy tones like greens and browns.
    • Cool tones pop with colors such as green, blue, purple, and even pink.

    Sometimes it helps to have a makeup cheat sheet, enabling you to know what colors work with any and every skin tone (especially helpful on rushed mornings!). Top picks that flatter all skin tones include deep purple on your eyes, peach blush that brings youthful health to your complexion, gold on your eyes, and a sheer pink gloss that should be a staple in every woman’s makeup bag.

    Now you’re sorted when it comes to mastering your skin tone so you can look your best while flaunting gorgeous skin.

    Find Your True Skin Tone

  • Botox for the Wedding Day?

  • Would you have botox for the wedding day? Here is the review of my experience with botox.

    In the run up to my wedding I didn’t really leave myself much time to have any pre wedding pampering. Time suddenly slips away and before you know it you are getting married next week! This was certainly the case for me. As you know from my previous posts that my main issue was my skin, and would it behave for the big day? It was hard and I was vigilant with my skin. Antibiotic cream in the morning, at night, herbal skin tablets, lots of water and I didn’t pick!! I also tried to go makeup free as much as possible before the run up too. 

    The treatment options

    I treated my mum to some teeth whitening and whilst chatting to her aesthetic nurse I got to thinking about treating myself. All of the skin peels, dermabrasion or laser therapy were way to close to the big day and my skin was being so good I didn’t want to rock the boat and upset it. One little thing that had been getting to me were my frown lines… Now I know I’m not a wrinkled old prune yet but I hadn’t been wearing my glasses in prep for the big day and I started to become very aware of my frown lines that had been disguised by my glasses. I bought this up to Jo the Aesthetic Nurse and she reassured me that there was still time to have a little something done before the wedding day.

    wedding day botox

    Markers for where I would have Botox

    image

    Immediately after Botox was applied. Little bit bumpy under the skin but it goes back to normal quickly.

    Botox is something that I have always been curious about and had many conversations with my brides about: Would I? Have they? Does it hurt? Will anyone notice?? Don’t get me wrong it’s not something that I have ever recommended to anyone but it’s always an interesting topic of conversation. I booked in my consultation with Jo and we discussed where I wanted to be ‘smoother’ and she explained what Botox did, the benefits and the procedure.

    Here is a bit of info about Botox

    Botox is the brand name of botulinum toxin and has been used cosmetically for over 10 years, it is also used to treat some medical conditions. Botox is a purified protein which is injected into specific muscles to temporarily relax them.

    I had it injected in two areas – the forehead and in between my brows. The effect wasn’t immediate, it can take up to 10 days to take effect but mine started in 4. I must admit that I did feel panicky when one side took effect and the other was a bit slower! I had one very ‘expressive’ eyebrow, and of course something I didn’t want on the wedding day. Jo was just at the end of the phone and reassured me that because the muscles are a lot stronger on one side it would take a bit longer, and sure enough the next day my eyebrows stared to look a lot more even. Phew!!

    image

    This photo cracks me up! This is me raising BOTH of my eyebrows

    natural Botox

    A couple of days later - very happy with the results and thank goodness my eyebrows are looking even. Hurrah!

    A week after the wedding I had a follow up appointment where Jo assessed my face and gave me a top up in any areas that needed it – I had a tiny bit in a really stubborn frown line.

    I was/am so happy with the result, it’s subtle enough that no one would notice but to me it made a huge difference!

  • My Wedding Skincare Routine (2014)

  • As a makeup artist, I thought it would be helpful to share my wedding skincare routine!

    In my experience as a wedding makeup artist, one of the main worries I encounter from my brides is troublesome skin. It can be too oily, or dry and if they are lucky, adult acne can be added to the mix. The skin can react to emotion and anxiety levels making it worse the more stressed you are.

    As an adult that has suffered from acne, this is certainly something I can completely relate to. ANY event, occasion, this is always my main worry. My wedding day is just under two months away and I am feeling the pressure.

    Starting from today

    I know what terrible skin is and at the moment my skin isn’t terrible. The trouble I have is my hormones, stress levels, and I do pick them – Please don’t judge!

    Every day I will have one or two spots but when I am hormonal my chin and sometimes my cheeks erupt in nasty cysts. Worse still, when I am anxious my back then decides to join in and before I know it I have spots spreading from my shoulder blades to my neck and hairline.

    Positive thinking

    In the last two months, I have started noting my bad skin days in a diary and I think this has helped understand my skin’s behaviour better than ever. My skin is at its worst in the week and a half before my period, fizzling out during and a few days after. Mainly on my chin, but a few nasty ones pop up on my forehead and cheeks.

    Post-period I am feeling more chilled and with that, my back acne has calmed down. I would find myself picking and scratching my back without even realising!! This obviously caused a bit of scarring and spread bacteria so the spots kept coming back.

    I made sure I exfoliated my back with a facecloth and my cleanser, and would then moisturise. It seems silly but I neglected my back because I couldn’t see it. As soon as I started to treat my back in the same way as my face it began to clear up. I would also apply my antibiotic cream to my back at night.

    I advise my brides not to try strong and abrasive products without being advised by a skincare pro. Most importantly whilst there is the time to book an appointment with their GP. Don’t pick and don’t squeeze.

    Listen to my own advice

    After making an appointment to see my GP he recommended I changed antibiotic creams. I had always used an antibiotic cream at night but I think my skin grew used to it. The new cream (Epiduo) helped remove redness and the swelling of existing spots whilst gently clearing my pores preventing new spots from appearing.

    Morning and night I use Bioderma Foam Cleanser and moisturise my face and body with Cetaphil Cream. Cetaphil is a non-comedogenic moisturiser that works with medicated skincare.

    The morning I use the above but before applying my moisturiser I apply ARK’s Skin Defence Regenerating Serum. It containers lots of essential vitamins, antioxidants and lipids that regenerate and renew the skin. One of the key ingredients is Allantoin which soothes, heals and repairs damaged skin and scarring. This has helped with my leftover acne scarring.

    I have recently found out that I am product sensitive so as a makeup artist this makes things a little tricky! I do try to stick with what works for me, but I do love to try new products. A few weeks ago I purchased all new skincare products, (all premium brands) a cleanser, moisturised, mask and exfoliator. After using these lovely products for a week my skin became dry, flaky and the many, many spots that followed took a long time to go!

    Needless to say, I stopped using them straight away and I will carry on using what I was using before… If it’s not broke why try to fix it? When you have skin like me, it seems like a great idea to do some pre-wedding pampering. In reality I need to tread carefully and go with what works.

    Here are my tips for better skin!

    wedding skincare routine

    Cleansing
    Over cleansing strips natural oils which leads to overproduction of sebum, blocking pores making acne worse. Try using gentle cleansers like Bioderma Sebum control or if that’s too much opt for a hypersensitive cleanser like Dermalogica’s UltraCalming Cleanser.

    Antibiotics
    If you are having a breakout that won’t budge, and you are finding it hard to manage its probably time to book an appointment with your GP. You may need antibiotics. Most contain a form of retinoid cream used at night that increases cell renewal and prevents pores from clogging (this is what I use). In extreme cases you may need antibiotics in tablet form, and be patient it won’t work overnight sometimes it can take over a month for you to start seeing results but it will be worth the wait. If it doesn’t work, go back and try a different type.

    Exfoliants and Masks.
    It’s better to keep things simple so don’t use anything that could aggravate your skin. It may be better to stick with cleansing and moisturiser but an exception and one of the gentlest exfoliants I have found and love using is Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant it’s gentle enough to use every day and contains salicylic acid and rice enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells, instantly leaving skin smoother and brighter.

    Moisturiser
    Don’t be afraid of moisturising. If you don’t your sebaceous glands will have to work harder to hydrate your skin. As a result, your skin may become oily and shiny. Go for a moisturiser that’s gentle and works with your skin.

    Facials
    Facials are lovely but can be too indulgent (if that’s even possible) depending on the type of facial. It may have the opposite effect if you break out from the products and deep massage. Go for a gentle and relaxing treatment to feel pampered or look into something that will be more targeted to help with any skin issues you may have.

    Book a course of 4-6 treatments as you may not see the benefit from a one-off facial.

    I hope this is helpful and if you want any more advice please email me info@lucyjaynemakeup.co.uk
  • Inside Out Beauty Event at LFW

  • I am relatively new to blogging so it was a lovely surprise to be invited to the London Grace Belgravia for an exclusive ‘Inside Out Beauty’ press event with ARK Skincare and The Elixir Clinic.

    I am already aware of the Skincare brand as I have quite a few ARK products in my professional kit. I love what this unique brand represents, everyone’s skin is completely individual and the products are prescribed to target your personal skin concearns. I have been using their Age Prepare, Age Maintain and Age Repair moisturisers on my bridal clients.

    ARK’s Ethos
    “ARK Age Aware Skincare is a revolutionary way if treating your skin through every life stage. We don’t believe in skin types at ARK. You’re unique and so is your skin. Skin reflects lifestyle choices, stress levels and hormonal changes. The products your skin needs to look its best will be unique to you, different to those of your best friend, daughter and mother.
    Our Skincare is prescribed by skin age as we know there are two key periods in the ageing process when a dramatic shift in hormones production changes the way the body works.”

    Amazing ARK goody bag!

    Amazing products in the ARK goody bag!

    The Elixir Clinic was something completely new to me. I have heard of various Celebs and Supermodels having detox infusions through a drip, and when I have seen their Instagram and Twitter photos it looks quite extreme. Like they are getting ready for an operation! After talking to the specialists and Co-founder this eradicated my ignorance and helped my greater understanding of what it does and how it benefits your long term health.
