MOTD Wedding Makeup Soft Smokey Eye

motdsoftsmokeyeye

This was look was inspired by one of my upcoming brides.  I love the shimmer but yet soft smokey look that brings definition to the eyes for a bride. I always think of bridal makeup as the more glamorous you - pretty, romantic and still you.  This is what I love to do - working with the bride to make her feel beautiful and most importantly enjoy her special day.  Last year I was a bride and it was just a magical time to finally be the bride and not the makeup artist (but I did do my own makeup, more about that later).

Here's the list of products to achieve this look (please leave a comment below if you would like to see  a tutorial on this).

  • L.A. Girl PRO Eye Shadow Primer in Nude
  • Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette - Foxy (highlight), Bootycall (lid), Tease (crease and blended up), Pistol (outer half of lid) and YDK mixed with Blackout (outer corner to create smokey)
  • Colourpop Super Shock Shadow I (Heart) This to create more shimmery to the lid and inner corner
  • Get Lucky Super Shock Shadow smudged on the bottom inner half of the eye

Review: Dinair Airbrushing System

YAY FOR AIRBRUSHING!!! So exciting you guys are going to love it!

What is airbrushing?

It is when makeup is sprayed onto the skin using an

airbrush

gun instead of being applied with sponges, brushes, fingers, or other methods.  It has become very popular with HD TV and film because traditional makeup (powders, liquid foundationr and creams) can settle in pores and fine lines which can be seen in HD TV.  With airbrushing the makeup is sprayed on, it settles on the skin as mini droplets of formula giving a more natural and non-heavy look. What's also great is the foundation will last ALL DAY, no touch ups needed, no need to worry about your makeup sweating off or transferring over to your boyfriend/husband/significant other.

I have been wanting to try out the

Dinair Airbrushing Makeup

system for a long time now.  It's nice to have something so mall and light weight for both personal and professional use.  My Iwata airbrushing compressor is so big that I hate taking it with me for on location work.  It's bulky and heavy but great for all over body airbrushing and FX work.

The system that I received is the Personal Pro Edition Kit, it has all your basic products for you to get started.  If you take a look at the website there are many options of different kits you can purchase, choose the best one that will fit your needs.

I am a MEDIUM with olive undertones ( I wear MAC NC40/NC42)

It is very easy to pick the right foundation color for you.  Just compare the models pictures with your natural skin tone and you will be set to you.  Keep in mind that you can customize the foundation by mixing colors together (more about this later).  If you are still unsure, visit their

Color Match

page and send them a pic of yourself.  You will receive an email with detailed information regarding all the products that would be best for you! Don't you love this? AMAZING customer service!!!!

I will be posting a  lot of about Dinair in the next couple of weeks from basic fundamentals of airbrushing to some makeup looks that you can create using the colors supplied in the kit. You can literally airbrush your whole makeup, - bronzer, blush, lip color, eye shadow, eye liner, eye brows!  YouTube videos will be supplied also (I think videos are great tools for learning!)

UNBOXING PERSONAL/PRO EDITION Kit

I was so excited when my kit came nicely packaged! I just wanted to jump in and start playing!

Good thing everything was packed seperatly in plastic.  One of my bottles leaked a little but it was easy to cleanup.

All the actual products that are included in your kit.  Basically everything you really need to start airbrushing away!

 A lot of education/product information for you to read to get to know your Dinair system.  Look there's even a DVD!

A handy dandy color chart of all the airbrush color makeups they carry.  This is great to keep when you want to order more colors. 

Look at the cute little pink compressor! You can customize your compressor with your favorite color or even an animal print.  It's light-weight and compact for easy storage and light for traveling.

The airbrush gun is very simple to use, you will get the hang of it in no time.  I really like how it has it's own case for storing and traveling.

This is just a short version of my review.  I will be updating more and also doing an introductory video on how to use the system! Please let me know if you guys have any questions.
