My New Love.

I could buy makeup all day everyday, I really could! There is something new every week that I want to try and buy. 
As a makeup artist I have to keep up with new products and trends so I feel like makeup shopping is part of my job? well i think it is anyway.

One of the most important parts of my job is to make sure that the makeup I apply in the morning is still looking good in the evening. Weddings especially need that longevity as our brides and bridesmaids are photographed all day and night. On a typical wedding day we start at around 7am so to be looking good at midnight involves good products and good application.

Once your on to a good thing with makeup you do tend to stick to it and why not? I know I do.
Every ones skin is different and what works for one may not work for another, so I'm always looking for products that work on everyone because my clients are all so different.

For me primers are paramount to my work, literally couldn't do makeup without them. My face primers I love and use at the moment are" Arbonne Makeup Primer", "Benefit Porefessional" and "Benefit That Gal Brightening Face Primer". They are all just beautiful products and never fail me, whatever the occasion I feel confident my makeup isn't going anywhere.

But my eye primer just wasn't making me happy, it worked and my makeup never creased or smudged I just wasn't loving it, So I bought the iconic "Too Faced Shadow Insurance" Melanie!!!! Why did you wait so long? To say I love this product is an understatement, it is exactly what my makeup kit was missing. 
The primer is a beige colour so it's very neutral it has a slight sheen but certainly not glittery or shimmery. It's so smooth to apply and you need the smallest of drops. I love that it has a dry finish so your eyeshadow sit perfectly. My eyeshadow stayed all day and night without fading or creasing, i really couldn't love it anymore if i tried.

Love Mel xx
