Remember when we were kids, and we'd get into Mum's makeup bag? Didn't we look a treat with our green and blue eye shadow, bright red lipstick and way too much blusher. It was fun.
But now we're adults and we're expected to just know how to properly apply makeup, so that we always look amazing. It's easier said than done, right? Whatever anyone says, there is definitely a knack to applying makeup well.
Some of us have enough trouble even understanding what the products are and do! From mineral foundations to BB creams and tinted moisturisers, it's a mine field. So how about a bit of professional help and guidance?
Thankfully, we live in Melbourne, and have access to some amazing makeup professionals. Have a browse through Bookwell and you'll see what we mean. There are some that specialise in wedding makeup; others who offer workshops and personal consultations on makeup.
Many skincare salons also sell products, and this is probably your best option if you have sensitive or problem skin. For example, if you suffer from acne, there are some moisturisers and foundations you definitely want to avoid.
Don't rely on what it says on the box, talk to a professional and you'll receive far better advice. The way in which you apply your makeup can also vary, according to your skin type or problem. Dealing with dry, mature skin, for example, is very different to oily teenage skin.
Professional makeup artists understand what products do and don't do, and know a few tricks when it comes to creating the best effect. For any type of special event or important appointment - not just your wedding day - take our advice.
Take a look through our selection of salons and choose one that offers professional makeup services. In the hands of these experts, you know you will look amazing!
