How to get the Perfect Bright Lip



Nadia Forde : Beauty Shoot for Stellar magazine

Firstly exfoliate the lip, if you want the perfect base to work on..You can use a soft lip exfoliate cream, (a cream with small beads to exfoliate) massaged into the lip and removed with a soft warm washcloth.

Or if you don’t have a lip exfoliate cream, massage the lip with the warm wash cloth in circular motions, then add a lip balm to add moisture. Use a lip brush to apply the lipstick or gloss, this will give precision. Always blot the first coat with a tissue, then apply the second coat, this layering gives a lasting effect.

If you’re not so confident with a brush, use a lip liner pared at the tip, in the same or similar tone as your lipstick and draw on the edge of your lip line. Face the pencil flat to the lip line (tip facing downwards) and draw upwards and inwards. (Try not use the tip of the pencil, as this can lead to unevenness in the line). Then apply the lipstick or gloss over this line and blend inwards towards the centre. Any mistakes with the line or lipstick, can be removed by a cotton bud or mixing a little concealer on the edge to give a perfect lip.

Good Tip : Highlight the cupids bow (curve on top of lip) with a reflective opal pigment powder or eye shadow, this gives a natural pout to the top of the lip.

Good Tip : If wearing a bright lip, this will draw more attention to the skin.So if you add a serum to your moisturiser or foundation this will brighten the skin. Or a mineral powder with reflective properties will also add a glow to the skin, if buffed on with a buffer brush.

Wedding Make Up @ Cabra Castle in Cavan

The make up for this wedding was very soft skin with the focus was on the eyes. The Eye Make Up used was a bright silver on the eyelid blended, to open the eyes. In the socket a mix of purple, bronze & matte chocolate brown eye shadow was blended for a smokey eye.

I used a cream peach blusher, which gave the skin a fresh peaches & cream appearance. Very English Rose…

Good Tip:When using cream blushers, either buff them on with a buffer brush or pat them on softly with the fingertips. This makes the blush look very natural & pretty.

Get The Perfect Winged Eyeliner

Stellar Magazine Beauty Shoot

Start by priming the eye, use a neutral matte eye shadow all over the lid. Then with a liquid liner brush, apply the liner liquid. Start in the centre of the eyelid as close as possible to the lash line. Using a patting motion, pat your way across to the end of the lid.

For the lower lashes, use your liquid liner brush, apply the liner liquid, as near to the lash line, under the lashes. Start at the centre and work your way across. (using the pat motion)

When you get to the end, a good tip to ensure the perfect flick, is to follow your line upwards meeting with the top line and drawing a line upwards. This will give you the perfect winged eyeliner.

If you’re a beginner, it might be easier to do this by looking into a hand mirror. Placing the mirror under your nose and looking downwards.

For more drama, begin from the inner tear duck all the way across. Same on the lower lashes. Visually, this will be much stronger, you can then make this line thicker for more va va voom!!!
