I get asked my potential clients all the time - "What Makeup do you use?"
I know people are curious, especially since going cruelty-free, what makeup I actually do have in my Makeup Kit. Contrary to popular belief you actually can look flawless and stunning on your wedding day without touching a single MAC product! I actually use plenty of very well known, high end makeup brands who produce quality products but don't feel the need to rub them all over a bunny and wait for an allergic reaction. Two Faced, NARS, Hour Glass, Urban Decay and Morphe are all quality makeup brands that appear in kit, just to name a few.
Most of my products are by luxury brands, yes... but not so exclusive that you can't go out and purchase them if you loved how it looked on your skin. You adored that glowy foundation and blinding highlighter? Great! You can easily grab them for your own personal collection next time you're at Sephora. I will happily give you the product name and the colour I used on you.
So these are my current favs for each category of Makeup.. If you book with me this is most likely what will end up on your pretty face:
Primer - Two Faced hang over primer (hydrating, smoothing and smells AMAZING)
Foundation - NARS sheer glow (makes your skin look naturally flawless) or Two Faced born this way (med-full coverage, matte, flawless finish)
Concealer - ELF maximum coverage concealer (the highest of coverage, my secret weapon) or LA Girl pro conceal (Every MUA has used this as some point, an oldie but a goodie)
Setting Powder - Ben Nye translucent powder (sets your face makeup in place like magic)
Bronzer - Two Faced chocolate solet (suits every skin tone, and dead set smells like choc)
Contour - NYX contour palette (there is literally a colour for everyone, amazing product)
Blush - Ben Nye (almost always a pink and peach combo, works a treat for a natural glow)
Highlighter - Usually a combo of The Balm mary loumanizer and Hour Glass ambient light (a match made in heaven for a glowing bride)
Eye shadows - Morphe (so many pigmented colours, I don't know if I will ever get over them)
Eyeliner - Tarte tartist liner (jet back and life proof)
Mascara - NYX waterproof black (can't go wrong with waterproof black)
Lashes - Model Rock Lashes or Red Cherry Lashes (best and most natural, also you can reuse them after!)
Setting Spray - Urban Decay (the only setting spray, like hairspray for your face)
