Makeup is going back to the future

old hollywoodApparently the 40s and 50s are coming back but just a bit toned down. The red lips as well as the pink lips are part of this seasons look and how could we do 40s and 50s without the sophisticated light eye shadow paired up with a winged liner. This combination is perfect for any occasion. With this seasons look we get to play with colors and indulge in what being a women is all about: beauty!
Less is more with this season the less you seem to have on the more beautiful you will look, remember that makeup is about enhancing natural beauty not about looking like a cake. Cheeks should be pink, soft and toped with a nice shimmery product on your upper cheek bone.
We can’t forget that a great attraction of the 40s and 50s where those amazingly groomed eyebrows, how do we get a pair of incredibly well groomed brows? Well besides the obvious tweezing or waxing, filling in the brows with a shadow or an eye brow pencil is key, applying just a tad of the product and spreading it well all over the brow creating a arched shape is what we are looking for.
Finally: your lips. Remember to always line your lips and with the liner fill in the lips as well to create a long lasting color once you apply your lipstick

Makeup for spring / flirty and fun

We all want to look our best at all times but when we begin making up our selves we kind of loose track of keeping things natural and end up with the “Smokey eye” well at least that’s what happens to me. In all truths to our obsession of looking fabulous, less is more! By simply accentuating our natural beauty and keeping things simple we achieve a flirtier, more inviting and younger look. I have been told once before by a (boy) friend that I seemed “high maintenance” I was surprised to hear that since im nothing like that. It occurred to me that since Im always well groomed he figured that I was “high maintenance” what a misconception. What! girls can’t look good without being high maintenance? Like I say “there are no ugly women just lazy women.” Let’s be “high maintenance” and take advantage now that spring is here, lets begin playing with pinks, champagnes, bronzers and mascara. Here Tiffany a YouTube makeup guru will show us how to create a fun, flirty, natural look.

Weekend photo shoots

Besides makeup, I also have a fascination with photography. Every weekend I try to do some photo shoots and invite any one who needs pictures for their portfolios. If you are interested in some shots contact me at mari@makeupbymari.com. Obviously it’s up to you how you dress and if you want me to make you up I do charge for makeup due to product usage and cost. Also if you have an idea for a shoot i am open to suggestions.

Facial Cleanser

I have an addiction to face cleansing products, I have tried them all but there is one I keep coming back to.. The clean and clear oil free foaming facial cleanser… I have tried other facial cleansers’ and they do not leave my face completely clean… Well, at least that’s how I feel… But the clean and clear makes …your face feel so fresh and clean… Totally recommend it.
