What an exciting weekend!! Spent Saturday and this morning in beautiful Atlantic City doing my bridal client, Lisa's makeup for her wedding day and the TLC shooting of the new series, "Four Weddings". Nothing better than working from a hotel room with an ocean front view. Lisa looked absolutely breathtaking!!
Wishing Lisa and her new husband the Best of Luck today while taping the grand finale of the show. I was flattered to be asked to do her makeup again for the grand finale. Hope they are the winning couple!!!!
When it comes to makeup, it's not that often I get to put my makeup knowledge into words. Usually it's the "final result" that speaks the loudest!! :)
But just last week, I was interviewed for an upcoming article on http://www.everydayhealth.com/ to share my insight on makeup for women/girls with acne prone skin. Such a great topic, because so many women battle acne prone skin way beyond their teen years. I really got to put my skin care "expertise" to the test.
Choosing makeup products, especially foundation can be overwhelming for many. And trying to cover acne and the scars it can leave behind, for some, is quite a challenge.
Ironically, this is one of the biggest requests I get from my bridal clientele. Not just those with recurring acne but brides that, for the most part, rarely break out but anticipate waking up on the morning of their wedding, glancing in the mirror and seeing a red inflamed blemish. Yes, a bride's worst nightmare and the tell tale sign of their pre-wedding related stress. We've all been there!!
Of course, on "The Big Day", my airbrush machine along with a few drops of the right custom blended foundation will magically do the trick. Unfortunately, on a day-to-day basis this isn't an option.
Luckily, there really are some great products on the market for concealing, protecting and healing most nasty outbreaks. With the right products and a little bit of practice, most blemishes can be your little secret!!
Looking forward to seeing the final copy of the article in about 2 months. I'll definitely have it posted once it's online.....
