Wedding Makeup!

Heyyyy Makeup Lovers!!!
Sorry I haven’t been writing in a while, well to be fair I have been writing posts I just haven’t been able to finish any of them lately. I have like two blog posts that I have neglected in my save files and two subjects that I have been wanting to write for a few weeks now. It's crazy how badly I miss writting in my blog but when I have time I'm just too lazy to do anything lol. I feel like all my weekends have been busy but fun lately but I knew it was going to be like that for me since I have wedding planning to do, a niece that’s on the way and a makeup job.
Saturday I had an awesome makeup job to do at five in the morning to put makeup on six beautiful women. Since it was a day wedding I tried to make the makeup simple but pretty. For the bridesmaids I did Shimmery eyes with some browns but for the Maid of honor I did a light pink eye with some shimmer and browns. I don't really have pictures of them right now but I do have pictures of the bride when I did a makeup trail with her. For the bride I did a brown smoky eye with a little sparkle and shimmer to it. The bride (Dawn) really wanted a smoky eye for her wedding day but she was getting married in the morning. For a day wedding you really don't want to apply on dark makeup like the color black because in the pictures it can sometimes look like two black holes instead of the beautiful dark smoky eyes that looks good in person. Makeup will always look different in the pictures then in person. I know it sounds funny but it’s the truth. So for the bride I wanted to give her what she wanted but at the same time I wanted her to look good in the pictures so I used browns instead of blacks and grays shadows for her smoky eye. We both loved the way it turned out.
I wish I had the wedding pictures to show you how well dawns and all the girls makeup turn out that day but here’s is a picture of when I did a makeup trail on her.

Once I have them I will show them off.
I can’t tell you girls how much I love doing wedding makeup, I love getting to know new people, crazy rush of getting everyone ready, and I especially loved the before and after of all the beautiful woman I applied makeup on.
I hope you girls have a good day or night!!
Much love from your crazy makeup lover!!

Redness Solutions!

Heyyyy Makeup Lovers!!!!!
I know I may always try new makeup products and rave about what’s new and awesome but the one kind of makeup I don't rave about to much is different kinds of foundation that is because I will only buy Redness Solutions by Clinique. It's not the fact I don't care or trust the other brands and the other kinds of Foundation out there, it just works for me.
Foundations are like dress sizes, they don’t work or fit on everyone. Not every bands formula will work for everyone whether it’s a drug store brand or department store one that’s why it took me years to find my perfect match. I always had trouble finding a foundation to hide my pink or red cheeks depending how I was feeling that day. I feel like people can tell what I’m thinking about by my 50 shades of red, whether I’m happy, sad, mad, tried, or drunk my face would always tell on me. So I went on a quest to find the right foundation for me but it took a lot of orange, yellow and other bad foundations to get there. Right before redness Solutions I would get one from the drug store just a shade darker to help me cover up most of my redness but it would always show up a little pink at the cheeks. That didn't really brother me too much because I would just correct it with bronzer and blush and no one could tell but me because I could feel how hot my cheeks were. When my cheeks get really red for no reason it would feel like they were on fire.
I didn't try this foundation when it first came out because I felt like I didn’t need it because I knew the tricks to cover it up but when I was having one of my bad days I went and brought it the next day. I haven’t really left this product since then, I would go and get a bb or cc cream for my busy mornings but for my going out full face makeup it is Redness Solutions. I have been using this little guy for three years now.
Now sense I am writing about this foundation I guess I should tell you girls a little bit about it.
Redness Solutions Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 with Probiotic Technology
This foundation is made to sooth any redness to the face and also helps to keep down most flare-ups. I have had less flare-ups sense I have been using this product for a while. It has both Probiotics and antioxidants to help strengthen the skin's barrier, and of course it has SPF 15 to help protect the skin from the mean sun. It is not a miracle worker but it does help make my skin look and feel calmer. I have worn this on my bad, good, and drunk days (night) and have to say it is a really good product for me and I won't be leaving it anytime soon.
Like I said it is hard finding the right face product for any skin type and when you do find it I would stick to it. If it works then why charge it.
I have no idea what to call this post, it isn't really a review. I wasn't really trying to write one. I think I just called this a bragging post since I am kind of bragging about how well it works for me.
Now if you are having trouble finding the right face foundation for your skin type then you should go to one of the Clinique counters first since they have so many kinds of foundation that helps certain skin concerns like age spots, dry skin, acne, large pores, and oily skin and so on. There are so many out there but only a few will work for you. This is the reason why I don't really do reviews on foundation.
I hope you enjoy reading my post!
What is your most favorite foundation to use and why?
I hope you have a good day or night!
Much love from your crazy makeup lover!!
