@Ellabellaxo: one trick that my best friend swears by is using the thickened, stiffer foundation goop that’s left in the *cap* of her foundation bottle as concealer. I’ve always thought that was pretty clever!

I very recently tried the green concealer for the first time, I was always very skeptical at how the heck something green could help and wouldn’t it show through? But I’ve been amazed at how well it has worked! I just make sure to blend it in a lot and you can’t even see the green, but the red is much less intense, even before I put on foundation or anything! I use the Loreal Paris studio secrets anti-redness primer.

After years of being a makeup artist. The rule stands true. There are no rules to makeup, only rules of thumb. Nothing called “too anything”.I disagree with telling anyone how to wear their foundation/blush/powder/eyeliner/eyeshadow. Makeup is subjective. Everyone has their own makeup style. Many light people tend to go light/lighter or mix it with a luminzer to make themselves brighter/radiant/porcelin like. A great example of this would be dita von teese, who even stays out the sun to maintain her light skintone and wears light foundation. Others prefer to be dark/darker and darken in the sun or use bronzer all over their skintone. Different people have different preferences. If I spelled “Horse” “Howrse” than there is no “ifs” “and” or “buts” because grammar isnt subjective. What is wrong is wrong!However. Makeup is subjective. I hate nude lips. Does that mean its right to say “dont wear nude lips” ? No.

I might not like it but someone else might. There is no rule to makeup. Thats the beauty of being a makeup artist. There are soo many different styles.

I hate bronzer. But maybe there is someone who loves that deep bronzed look. I cant go to them and say “dont go soo deep in the bronzer” and say its “constructive”. There are soo many different styles.who is anyone to tell someone theyre wearing a too light or too dark foundation, because there is no such thing. Nicole and Sam from pixiwoo(huge makeupartists in Britain) sometimes wear paler or darker foundation and it looks gorgeous! as long as people blend it to the neck its fine….some people prefer to look bright and radiant.

Just a general reminder, as a bride you should do the makeup YOU feel comfortable in. Dont let people pressure you into something you dont think suits you.
