Tips on Age cheating!

Want to learn how to cheat your age like Gwen?  Can you believe she is 42!  Amazeballs!

From your hands to your lashes and brows there are a multitude of small areas that will give away your age!

When cheating on your age, it’s important to pay attention to the small details.
We tend to forget about our hands when going in the sun or just out and about.  If you drive its usually this side that is worse!  The sun is the devil when it comes to aging.  Surely if I had know back in my school days I would have worn my gloves and hat when my school teachers bellowed at me to do so!

old handsSadly, the way to draw attention to your less-than-youthful-looking hands is to have a remarkably fresh face. The contrast immediately draws attention.   Your hands can tell your age more than your face these days! Check out Madge and Sarah.. YIKES!

Thankfully, it is reasonably easy to rejuvenate them. Age spots can be zapped away by Jax and her IPL machine. You will only need a couple of these to make your hands look 10 years younger!  IPL will not only remove the pigmentation it will also stimulate collagen and elastin and make your skin super soft!

Once you have the back of your hands looking younger, you may want to show off your fingers – not so easy when your nails are also showing the effects of ageing, including dryness and uneven surfaces like ridges and splits.

Have a Deluxe mani that will exfoliate and moisturize your hands as well as your nails.  This will also fix the ridges by buffing them out and making your nails super smooth!  Clipping all the dry cuticles off will work wonders!

Makeup – the trick is to appear as natural as possible and not too heavy on your eyes as this will highlight those wrinkles!  One of the latest craze is semi-permanent eyelash extensions. They will last providing you care for them properly, which includes brushing them and not using oil-based anything on your eyelids, you’ll still look great without any other eye make-up at all.  Its recommended to have regular 2 week infills to keep them looking perfect.  Check out our previous post on lashes!

Eyebrows – Sadly the hair does get less as we age!  One of my elderly clients quotes “the hair from my brows fell to my chin” haha. These days there are heaps of products out there that will help with this.  You can purchase products that actually can help your brows and lashes grow!  Then there is makeup to help.  Draw your brows in with a similar colour pencil while brushing with  a clean mascara brush at the same time.   This will help smooth out hard lines from the pencil.  You can also fill in with shadows.

So here are a few tips to help with aging… There are many many more too!  Why not come in for a facial and I can give you some tips!

Bridal Series Part IIl: Makeup

ivanka-trump-bridal-makeupWhen it comes to bridal makeup, its all about enhancing your natural beauty, and making your best features pop!  So before we get to the makeup, have a look at our previous post on how to prep your skin for your big day, beautiful makeup starts with beautiful skin.

First thing to ask yourself is, what is the weather going to be like? This is very important because if your day is on a hot summers day, by the time your ceremony is finished your face would have melted off and we don’t want that do we now. NO!  So applying a  oil control foundation primer such as Becca Mattfying Primer will allow your foundation to stay on longer.

wedding-makeup-looks-naturalNext thing is complexion, before you choose a foundation you should already know what you skin type is so you can get a foundation with the right formula for your skin type to achieve that flawless look, a favorite of ours is Nars Sheer Glow/Matte, its a sheer to full coverage. To set the foundation  you want to use a translucent to hold that foundation so it wont move an inch! Ben Nye Banana Powder is a little paradise in a bottle, unlike other translucent powders that give you that white cast in photos.

The trick to getting a striking yet subtle eye look, less is more. Stick with neutrals and colours that compliment your eye colour. Stay away from a harsh black liner, as black liner tends to look very harsh in photos, especially if they are black and white. If you want to give your eyes a shape then use a brown black liner and smudge it slightly. We recommend  the Mac X15 warm/cool Neutral Pallette as it has a wide range of neutral colours that will suit any style of makeup a bride could want.

495daebeb752adeca4453c057f6ca280As mentioned ealier about bridal makeup, less is definitely more and we couldn’t stress that anymore when it comes to your cheeks.  A slight amount of blush is enough as I’m sure you will naturally be blushing anyway! To complete your look, apply nice nude lipstick that is very close to your natural lip colour, you can always change the lip colour to a  sexy bold red lip as you get ready to get down on the dance floor! Be sure to choose a long lasting lip colour.

Round up lots and lots of images of your favorite makeup looks.  Make a pinterest board.  Or check out our pinterst make up boards. Then do trials so you can see which is best for you.  You may love a certain look but it may not suit you!  So do a couple of trails so you and your makeup artist can find the look for you.

Bridal Beauty Part 1

So you got the rock, firstly yay! (insert squeal here!) secondly where the heck do we start!?

modern-photographics

Bridal beauty has to be sectioned into 2 parts- hair and beauty. Why? Cause its a mammoth of a job!! But totally fun in the lead up to your big day!

Never again will you be able to get away with “what? (my future to be husband that put a ring on my finger so your basically stuck now) I need to have a facial every second week to get my skin glowing for our magical day where we say I do” or
“what? (my adoring future husband that knows a happy wife equals a happy life) I need to see my hairdresser every two weeks in lead up to our special so my locks are looking silky and smooth and in perfect condition for my perfect up do”

All jokes aside, your hair and beauty regime should be ramped up to the lead up of “The Day”

Firstly Skin:  The point is to get your skin in as good shape as possible so your makeup looks fantastic, stays in place, behaves as it should, and you need less of it. And even the most close up shots of you, hours into the event, are lovely.

So here is what we recommend, A fortnightly facial: we have many different facials at Esstudio to suit time and budgets.   This will feed your skin with nutrients and get it healthy.
IPL treatments.. If you can afford these they are the gold!  Its advisable to have at least 3 treatments at 3 week intervals.. IPL removes sun damage and pigmentation, refines pores and stimulates collagen and elastin.  You skin will be like a baby’s bum!
Call us for a free skin consult.
Now the work doesn’t just stop in the salon, it is advised to continue at home..
La Clinicas GlyC range will get your skin looking fabulous for your wedding.

stem

At least six weeks before, use a powerful, do-it-all, rejuvenating serum each night under a hydrating cream, Jax recommends La Clinica’s Caviar and Peral serum from their firming lift range, get a thorough exfoliation (this might mean a few peels (Esstudio’s GlyC miroderm facials will do the trick) and skin-boosting nourishment from traditional facials in the final month.

And lets not forget your brows, lash extensions and  paws and claws! All things that can be up kept at Esstudio.

THE LAZY GIRL’S GUIDE TO AFTER WORK DRINKS

The holiday season has officially passed and we’ve all gone back to work – but that doesn’t mean that the party’s over. The sun is still shining and the there’s really no better way to ring in the weekend than Friday night drinks with the girls. We know as well as you do that on a Friday arvo, after a long week slaving away at work, the last thing that you really want to be doing is applying a whole new face of make-up. However, that’s still no excuse to head out looking like a Hobo Jo – there are so many ways to build on your office-appropriate makeup for a more polished, dramatic result.

Day makeup

If you start your day with a more natural look – just a swipe of eyeliner and a smudge of shadow – then adding a bright lip is a perfect way to make that transition from day to night with really not that much effort at all. Start by dusting some loose translucent powder across your face to matte out any shine and oil from the day before applying your lipstick. For the ultimate creamy application, use a lip brush to mix the lipstick on the back of your hand before painting it on to your lips. Blot with a tissue and then apply a lip sealant to make sure that the colour lasts all night long!

day night 2

If a red lip is already your signature look and you feel like adding a little bit more drama for the night ahead then try building on your eye makeup to create a smoky eye. Start by powdering your whole face with some translucent powder, paying extra attention to your eye socket so that you can avoid creasing throughout the night. When you’re working on a smoky eye it’s always easiest to start with the lightest colour first and gradually introduce darker colours, blending as you go. To finish the look, apply a kohl liner around the lash line and water line of you eye before smudging it to achieve the perfect smoky effect. Reapply a quick swipe of mascara and you’re golden!
