Summer Makeup Trends!

With the summer of 2018 quickly approaching, it’s time to get a head start on makeup trends for weddings, graduations and makeup lovers across the globe! This summer’s show stoppers focus on bold colour, golden light-reflecting pigments and holographic illusions. Added to each look are great options of Jane Iredale products to mimic the trends!

The runways of Marni and Missoni showed us that blue shadows are all the rage for this summer, especially a bold electric blue. This look can be achieved by applying an even application of your favourite blue shadow to the base of your lid, just below the natural crease. You will want the line of colour to be crisp and clear, so avoid blending this look. If full bold shadow isn’t for you, try a bold eyeliner and only line your bottom lid. Pair this look with a coat of mascara and a pink or nude lip gloss!

Summer is no stranger to shimmer and highlighter, but this summer’s trend is all about having that golden tone across the upper cheek bone. Using a fan shaped brush for application ensures an even and natural look without using too much product. Pair this look with sunset coloured eyeshadows of oranges & peaches!

Remember those super reflective lip glossed we could not get enough of when we were younger? Well they are back and better than ever! This summer is all about embracing glow and what better way than ultra shine glass! This look is not limited to just our lips; apply a small amount of gloss with your fingertips to your cheek bones and eyelids to achieve this high-shine look.

Brides: Prepping for the big day!

There are already enough things to take care of before your wedding day, so let us help you to navigate your bridal beauty with a few helpful tips and suggestions.

Be sure to book your bridal makeup trial 4-6 weeks before the big day, if you are able to. This will give us enough time to prepare and ensure your desired look is achievable.
Start prepping your skin (head to toe) one month before your wedding day. Stress may be inevitable and it will affect the quality of your skin. Booking in for an Active Pureness facial 4 weeks prior to your big day can make a world of difference. Add in our NuFace micro-current treatment to ensure your skin is plump & flawless. A second NuFace treatment may be done up to one week before the wedding day.

Book your spray tan 48 hours before the big day. This will ensure that your colour has developed fully before you are ready to show it off. By the second day after getting your spray tan, all of the DHA (dihydroxyacetone) has been rinsed away and reduces the risk of staining any white fabrics. Remember to have all of your waxing completed and to exfoliate 48 hours prior to your spray tan!

*This summer’s wedding look is all about timeless beauty! With a taupe or brown tone smokey eye, golden cheek glow and a nude lip.
