Makeup by me: Classic makeup

Brown eye makeup, flawless & glowy foundation, neat brows and a lipstick. That’s a very classic and beautiful makeup look which suits many people. It’s also very easy and safe to do since it works for many styles and looks. By being safe I mean that the color scheme is quite natural and it doesn’t take attention away from it’s wearer but actually highlights her or his features. For example a grey smokey eye doesn’t fit everyone whereas these light natural shades do fit everyone (I think). Of course the makeup is easy to vary with lipstick, blush or different eyeshadow shades (cool/warm/etc.).

For Tiina I used warm shades on lids and cheeks and I paired them with a girly peachy light pink lipstick. I think Zuii’s Daisy lipstick looked amazing on her as if it was made for her! I also put Tiina to a little eyebrow class and showed her the best way to do her brows. I used Rimmel Brow This Way which is an awesome eyebrow kit from drugstore. I really do recommend that palette. It has a powdery shade and a wax and little eyebrow brushes. For me the shade is too warm but it works great on brunettes.

It’s always exciting to get new faces to do makeup on. It’s like painting a canvas but instead of painting on flat base I try to look for the things and features that I wanna highlight on the face. I choose the shades and colours that best suit her or him and work with that. I think that on this particular makeup I did really well.

The best thing in doing Tiina’s makeup was still just getting to spend time with her. She just moved to Helsinki so I guess we’ll be spending more time together.

I did a lot of makeup while I was in Kuopio. Actually I did makeup from breakfeast to dinner. I had some of my favourites with me since I couldn’t carry all my makeup with me. I did beautiful and quite different makeup looks with same products. Too Faced’s palette suits anyone and Rimmel’s new brow kit turned out to be quite nice too.

For Salla this was the first time when a professional did her makeup. Still she trusted me and even let me use green in her eyes which she actually loved and would have wanted even more. Maybe next time I’ll go full green-crazy with her!

But this is a good example of colour-use in a daily basis. It’s nothing too crazy but it’s there and it looks great. Right?

Ansu hoped for brown eye shadow and I achieved that with warm colours that really bring out her beautiful brown eyes. I added some colour with pink blush and lipstick. IsaDora’s lipstick was another new product that I wanted to test and I asked Ansu to tell me her thoughts on that. She said it was easy to apply, it lasted quite well and it felt nice and moisturising on the lips. A great lip product that is!

Nappu was the birthday girl. I did this beautiful golden halo eyemakeup on her which really complimented her huge blue eyes. Also I bough her one of my favourite products as a gift and used it as a blush. Zuii’s sparkling powder in the shade Berry really looked pretty with her flawless and glowing complexion.
