Blush or Bronzer??? What do you use?

Let’s get ready!
First apply some primer then your regular foundation.  Now use a foundation colour to totally match your natural skin colour.. If you want a bit of the sun-kissed look or some colour to your cheeks.  This is where we would use blush or bronzer.
But which do you grab????  Your blush or your bronzer?

Tricky situation, right? You almost feel like you should use one or the other?  Or do you even own both?  Wowzez!! Break them rules!

But guess what! You can actually use both :)  But it must be down right.  Who likes that look of a orange face when used too much bronzer???  Not me!

Bad bronzing!

Here’s a super-quick guide to work out the colour your cheeks should be sporting.

If you want to look like you have been to Hawaii.

Go for a little bronzer. The brown pigments will give your skin that I’ve-just-spent-a-week-in-the-Caribbean glow and if you choose one with some shimmer in it, it will give your skin an instant hit of radiance.

Apply your bronzer under your cheekbones, around your jawline, by your hairline and on your nose and chin. Lightly dust some on your neck, chest and décolletage for good measure and to make it all look natural.   Do not over do this step… sometimes bronzer can go terribly wrong!

Good bronzing.

If you want to contour:

Reach for the bronzer or a darker foundation.  Powder or creme, but make sure its free from any shimmer or glitter. The natural hue will help bring out your angles while adding warmth to your face.

Starting at your temples by the top of your ears and draw a three and coming down just under the chin line. Apply the bronzer or creme in the hollows of your cheeks.  Blend blend blend into your foundation so there is no harsh lines.  You can also apply the colour on either side of the bridge of your nose and at your temples. Your skin will look fabulous after this!

The three rule.. (done in blue here.. just so you can see) :) This is where you should contour.

Rule of 3

If you want your skin to look ‘awake’:

Blush time! Pink and peach blushes will help give your skin a wonderfully natural flush that almost looks like you’ve run all the way to work.  (without doing it) hehe

The key to a great blush application is to keep the colour light and not too brightly pigmented, otherwise you’ll lose that natural look.  And it will turn clown like!

If your face is round or oval, apply your blush on your cheekbones up towards your ears as this will help lengthen your face and add definition. For longer faces, apply your blush on the apples of your cheeks and extend the colour horizontally towards your ears.

Great Blushing!

If you want an overall natural finish:

Use both!!  Wowzez… Who would have known. :)

Just make sure you don’t go overboard with how much you apply and make sure you blend the colour in properly.

THE UNDERCUT

It’s been undercut central here at Esstudio lately. With our clients drawing inspiration from celebrities like Rihanna (Thank God her mullet style didn’t take off) it’s becoming more and more popular every day. What do you think? Are you brave enough to take the plunge?

I think that this will be my summer haircut

Okay, so everybody knows that with summer comes a new hair cut, right? And after watching countless beautiful ladies walk out the doors of Esstudio Galleria with a cute, easy-to-maintain bob atop their heads, I’ve decided to take the plunge. But it’s not that simple. With a short haircut comes a whole new world of possibilities. There’s long bobs, pixie cuts, choppy bobs, wavy bobs, sleek bobs, concave bobs – it’s all pretty overwhelming.

And so after hours of scouring the web in search of the ultimate bob I came across this picture of the beautiful Dianna Agron. I am officially in love with this hair. This is it. I’ve found the one.

 

THEM BROWS – HOW TO ROCK THE FULL BROW TREND

Cara Delevingne. Demi Lovato. Lily Collins. Audrey Hepburn. Emma Watson. Rita Ora. I love them. Every single one of them. Why? Look no further than their incredible eyebrows. The full-brow trend has been around for a couple of years now and it doesn’t look like its going anywhere fast. That’s great news if, like me, you’ve been bestowed a thick, fluffy pair by the eyebrow gods. But for some, this means undoing years of plucking, threading and waxing in a quest to grow the ever elusive ‘power-brow’.

The key to making this trend work for you is to work out where your arch belongs. The easiest way to do this is to grab a pencil and slant it from the bottom of your nostril to the middle of your iris. Follow this line until you reach your eyebrow – that’s where your arch should sit. If you can nail the right shape for your face, then you’ll be working your brows like nobody’s business. Just remember that your eyebrows are not twins – they’re sisters. They aren’t identical and they’re not supposed to be.

If your eyebrows are a bit fair go to your nearest salon and get an eyebrow tint to darken and define those babies. Too sparse? No dramas – pick up a brow pencil or powder and fill those suckers in. Just remember that you don’t actually need a colour that much darker than your natural colour – one shade should do it. The last thing that you want is a pair of big, dark caterpillars sitting on your face. You can finish off the look with a brow gel to set them for the rest of the day.
