Ask the MUA–
As we know you cannot display your fan-tab-u-luss-ness without great hair and makeup to compliment the great outfit you pieced together. So I reached out to one of our resident make up artist and asked a few questions on makeup.
This session’s “Ask the MUA” the consultant is Aleksandra Adams.
Feebee asked: “What is the biggest mistake you see with women when it comes to makeup?”
Aleksandra replied: Women are afraid of any changes, they tend to stick up to their everyday routine and apply the same products and the same colors on a daily basis. Just the little changes in the style of makeup, applied with new tones and shades could make an enormous difference which could make them look fresher and feel younger.
Feebee asked: “Is there anything women should do differently for their skin or makeup as the weather changes?”
Aleksandra replied: Foundation! Lots of women forget about the fact that with the winter season our skin tends to get less sun rays, and that makes us paler. Let’s make sure not to apply same shades of foundation through the year. During the winter, I recommend to use more natural and softer foundation tones, which would not turn our skin to orange (compared to the rest of our body). During the summer; feel free to play with bronzers and darker powders to achieve this beautiful sun kissed – summery look.
