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

Makeup Artist, NC – Wedding & All Occasion Makeup Tips

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!”

Wedding Destination: Bald Head Island  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOOIAT1LpAQ girls-wedding

Wedding of Leslie Kropp,  April 25th, 2009 on Bald Head Island in North Carolina.  What a beautiful bride Leslie was!  She and her fiance chose an evening wedding “On the Beach at Sunset”… surrounded intimately by family and friends. Leslie’s makeup for herself and her wedding party was a Bride natural look with a touch of added glamour echoing the  joyous occasion…..and they all looked simply gorgeous.

Bald Head Island is truly one of the most breathtaking Wedding and Vacation destinations in the world. The Island hosts 12,000 acres of which you’ll enjoy 10,000 untouched acres of beach, marsh and maritime forest preserves.

Intimate neighborhoods dot the landscape and gently surrender to nature as they embrace the ambience of the azure ocean and white sandy beaches.
Bald Head Island is a two-mile journey across the Cape Fear River from Southport, North Carolina. You are transported to the island via Ferry and while on the island by golf cart.  We have enjoyed working with brides from all over the world and travel from Wilmington only 45 minutes away.

The Pristine beaches, quaintness of the lodging and Old Baldy Lighthouse…all give you a beautiful ‘backdrop’ for your special day. It’s a Photographers dream to shoot Weddings on the Island. Found here are both natural wonders and rich historical drama. Truly,  Bald Head Island offers a distinctive maritime world that’s beckoning your discovery. So come join us….
