Is your make up outdated?

With make up, the first thing you need to ask yourself is whether you’re stuck in a beauty rut. If you’ve been using the same techniques, colours and products for the past decade, then you definitely are. What looked good on you when you were 18 is not going to suit you when you are 28, as your face and personal style change.

A lot of people get scared of change, mainly because they just don’t know how or where to start.
Getting your make up done by a professional is a great way to start.
Ask questions and take notes on the looks, colours and products they are using.
Get inspired by flipping through the latest fashion magazines or gossip magazines to see what the celebrities are looking are like. They have access to the industries top make up artists and have the latest products sent to them on the regular.
Ask yourself if you have a make up crutch; a product or look that you rely on too much. (Mines definitely blush) look over old photos over a long period of time and see if you can see something obvious. The great thing about make up is trying new things, experimenting and passing around tips and tricks with friends. They’re are so many great products out there.. And many of them can be found under one roof; Sephora. http://www.sephora.com

Here’s an example of what’s in my personal make up bag.

Foundations:
Armani
Make Up Forever HD foundation in #127
Hourglass tinted moisturizer

Face illuminators:
Laura mercier
MAC strobe cream

Bronzers:
Guerlain terra cotta for blondes

Blush:
Nars in Orgasm
YSL kiss n blush in shade #5

Concealer:
MAC 8 hr
YSL touche éclat

Lipstick:
MAC in hue
Finally it’s always a good idea to seal your make up so it stays put. Like hairspray keeps your hair in place, so does a make up sealer.
I like MAC Fx plus and skindinavia has a bunch of great ones to choose from.
