Makeup Artist NC – Anti-Aging ‘Tricks Of The Trade’ – Olive Oil Secrets

Anti aging makeup ‘tricks ‘ help us look years younger and olive oil’s skin care secrets… ageless!  

As a seasoned makeup artist I focus special attention on the eye and lip area since these age faster than other areas of the face. Larger lips and an open eye look give you a youthful appearance and are achieved with artistry tricks. Makeup techniques take years off your appearance and these tips can be easily taught so you can duplicate the look whenever you desire.  

A primary step for good skin care each week is exfoliation, this will help your skin look younger immediately and absolutely radiant after makeup application.

Like the famous Italian actress Sophia Loren, I use olive oil for skin care.  Sophia Loren at 76  is still considered one of the most beautiful woman in the world.  Olive oil is an ancient  Roman beauty secret and one I’ve suggested to my clients for many years.   Also, Jeanne Calment, who holds the record for the longest confirmed lifespan, reportedly attributed her longevity and relatively youthful appearance to olive oil of  which it’s said she poured on her food and rubbed into her skin. Try a dab of organic extra virgin olive oil ( first cold pressed ) several times a week on your  face and as a total body moisturizer. 

Olive oil, or ‘Liquid Gold’ has been used throughout the Mediterranean for thousands of years as both a health and beauty aid.  This precious oil has been treasured as a beauty aid because it protects, tones and moisturizes the skin. Olive oil is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients that are easily absorbed and water soluble so it won’t clog pores. Premium olive oil actually ‘feeds’ your skin to make it firmer, truly  anti-aging.  Scientifically it’s proven olive oil is a natural anti-inflammatory agent for total body health.  As we age the inflammatory response is higher making olive oil benefits of greater value.                                                                   

If you or a loved one suffer from an autoimmune disease like ‘Rheumatoid Arthritis,’ read the benefits of olive oil and the Mediterranean diet @  www.rheumatoidarthritissupport.blogspot.com     

Directions as a moisturizer for the face:  Warm a tiny amount in your hands, pat in gently and not too close to eyes,(makes them cloudy) allow to absorb for about 8 -10  minutes,  then pat off  excess with a soft cloth and proceed with your usual beauty routine. It’s natural, healthy, and gives you a youthful glow!

                       Wedding

Spring and Summer Weddings  embrace a renewed interest in classic stlying in dress, hair and makeup . Hollywood glamour of yesterday is back too.   

This season, eyes go bolder with shades of color enhanced with triple coats of mascara or with false lashes expertly applied. Lips stay moist but lined for fullness in colors complimentary to your skin tone with a final touch of shimmery gloss to highlight your bridal elegance.  Yes, Red lips are back for those 40’s and 50’s looks, but not everyone can carry off the look!   So, try different shades of red and if it’s not for you…. don’t fret,  find another shade YOU do like… it will be beautiful, trust me.  

Spring and Summer makeup trends are both glamorous and elegant with soft colorful shades for eyes with a bolder lip for that ‘romantic flare’ of yesterday. 

Check out : March Archives – ‘Makeup Tips for Brides’  and my Blog @ www.artistrybysandy.blogspot.com  for latest tips each month.  

  Your Bridal gown can be glamorously accented with Chandelier or Drop earrings to bring focus to your face so everyone’s eyes are on you the entire Wedding Day. 

Hair Design trends lean towards romantic styling as hair is allowed to do ‘ it’s thing’… with loose curls even if your choice is the ‘updo.’    

There are beautiful new styles and colors in gowns for Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride. So, explore many options to find what’s perfect for your figure and taste.    

Coastal North Carolina hosts hundreds of miles of pristine beaches against a backdrop of a azure blue sea, truly this is the destination to make your Beach Wedding a dream come true.  Among my favorites, Wrightsville Beach, Airlie Gardens and Bald Head  Island!      Wedding Photography:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOOIAT1LpAQ

North Carolina Weddings – “Photography Perfection”

May 14, 2009 at 4:57 pm (Artistry By Sandy, Bald Head Island NC, Bald Head Island Photography, Destination Photographer, Makeup Artist Coastal Carolina NC, Makeup Artist Wilmington NC, Makeup Artist Wrightsville Beach NC, Makeup Tips by Artistry by Sandy, Makup Artist NC, NC, North Carolina Photographers, Ocean Isles Beach, Stephanie Moore, Topsail Beach NC, Wedding Photographer, Wrightsville Beach NC)

Weddings during the summer months in humid climates like we have in North Carolina  require special care with makeup application. 

“Beach or Garden” weddings will need added support because your outside for most of the wedding day photography. The bride and bridal party will want their makeup to stay fresh looking and flawless for all the photography from the bridal shots,  during the  wedding and throughout the reception. 

 The best makeup for humid climates is a cream to powder foundation  that’s oil free.  Wear a light powder if you need to control more shine and your photography will turn out beautiful…

Spring and Summer Makeup for Wedding’s and All Occasion’s is prettier than ever.  After years of telling women to choose between strong eyes and strong lips, both can be strong.  This actually helps balance out the trends of the black and white power suits, floaty nightgown dresses or white eyelet sheaths.  How wonderful to actually have options, we can ‘flirt with glamour’ this season….which is exactly what us girls love to do.

Brows are strong this year….so don’t over tweeze…. just keep them groomed and arched, add highlighter to the brow bone….. it adds glam to the entire eye area. For us mature girls it gives us an instant eye ‘lift’ …. a makeup trick for younger looking eyes.

While the hottest runway looks involve wearing a fiery orange red lip most of us aren’t even close to looking like Audrey Hepburn or Ava Gardner;  so it’s best to go with a strong matte lipstick in peach or pink. ( lipstick, not lip gloss). The key to great looking lips is a a lipstick that’s satiny, a silky look that’s not too dewy and not too matte — add a light foundation, triple coat those lashes with black mascara or false ‘demi’ lashes … and darling, your … ‘Good To Go!”

Donna-013

The best makeup tip for photography is perfectly matched foundation to your skin tone.  It’s a science to match foundation and individualize it to your ‘unique’ coloring and skin type. It’s necessary to ‘color code’ you in natural light using 3 or 4 shade stripes at the chin line.  Once they dry the shade that disappears without demarcation is the one for you!   Donna has normal skin tone variations, so with a few corrections and concealer in all the right places her skin tone was balanced and flawless …..’camera’ ready for her photography.

 As your Makeup Artist I want you to be able to recreate the look after our session  and duplicate it on your own.  My goal is to inspire you, …that’s the greatest joy in my work.

This season we’re seeing RED….it’s gorgeous and it’s everywhere…..definitely THE color this Winter.  Red is a luscious eye catching color so our Makeup is bolder to give us a brilliance to match.  Lip shades range from clear red to ruby, or like Angelina try a brick red liner all over the lip and top off with clear gloss. Eyes are dramatic in smokey gray or deep brown, lined at lash line in black. Heavy on mascara, or use false lashes and always add a shimmer eye shadow at brow bone to highlight and lift the eye. With a touch of bronzer in deep rose your glamorous look in complete…your ready for any occasion….beautifully. 

Enjoy the Winter season and if I can help you with Makeup Artistry for special occasions or events ahead just email or call.

Makeup Artist NC – Anti-Aging Tips

One important Anti-Aging tip, “eight hours of uninterrupted sleep a night.”  Sounds impossible doesn’t it, especially with our harried schedules today, but we can set this as a personal goal.  Scientifically it has been proven recuperative sleep is necessary for good health, weight loss and longevity, a beneficial goal don’t you think? 

When we’re fully rested even our mood responds in a positive way which helps ward off those sagging frown lines we begin to see in our late 30’s and 40’s. For us 50 to 60 plus, we need quality sleep for multiple reasons including longevity and looking our best.  

Water, it’s Anti-Aging! We need 8 glasses of filtered water every day. If you find this difficult add a couple slices of lemon to make it mildly acidic and refreshing. Your skin will respond by looking younger as skin cells plump up with hydration to minimize wrinkles. Other wonderful benefits include internal cleansing of all your bodily systems.  Good health to you!

If  your planning a Gala, Wedding, or Anniversary, I can be at your service to make them memorable.

Now booking through New Year 2008
