I recently did some airbrush makeup for a friend of mine as she wanted a glam but polished look for her graduation.

Below are the pics of her before and after and even with me applying her makeup. She kinda looks like a voluptuous take on Jessica Rabbit lol :)! 

Her look encompassed false eyelashes that were cut to make her eyes more almond shaped and elongated as well as evening out her skin tone with Temptu Airbrush Makeup.  Contouring was applied but not too harsh and obvious.

Hi guys!

My intention is to create a series of articles to help deal with some of the biggest problems that we go through regarding our skin.  I firmly believe that makeup will not work or fulfill its purpose as good as it should if the skin is not receptive or smooth.

Pertaining to my captioned, this is an age old question that always brings out the worse in us, be it depression, sadness or even just wanting to hide from the world for the period of time until they go away.

Pimples occur for different reasons as most people know and they can appear on both young and old and create the feelings I describe above.  One of the biggest factors for them is inadequate skin care, whether we use incorrect products or not enough of the right ones, and then they magically appear.

I can tell you that even I get them, have them right now, unfortunately because I am on vaca and everything went haywire with my skincare regimen.  But I can tell you that there are homemade items that can help but patience truly is a virtue and will def apply here.

One of the best ways that I know and subscribe to is to use Baking Soda from Arm and Hammer.  When you wet it, it becomes like a paste and you can use it allover as a mask and wash off immediately.  It creates a softer surface on the face and helps to reduce the inflammation and within a week they should disappear with no scarring (try not to pick them).  Note however, not everyone can use them especially those with extra sensitive skin.

So another option that should be gentler is using oats and creating a paste and using as both an exfoliator or even as a mask.  The end result is very soft skin and even your makeup goes on better as it acts like a primer prior to application.

In my next blog, I will introduce some additional ways that are inexpensive and SAFE!

Thanks to my friend BGD, Brandy Gomez-Duplessis, she gave an overview of the newbies making a splash on the international market - OCC LIP TARS.  They have been featured on YOUTUBE in particular and have been dissected with all the diff colours.

As a makeup artist, I also have to be mindful of the products, what the newbies are, the trends and also what really works. As such, I glanced at them, then reversed or as how us Trinis say it 'wheel' and I am really going to get them.

The product carries hemp and peppermint oil which should be soothing (will need to ensure that the really sensitive lips could take it)  to make the lips feel soft and pliable.

See the link here for her review.  When I get them I will def try and post the results.
