    Last Saturday I had a really great make-up consultation at the salon! She wanted to start dressing up a little more before work but basically only used mascara in normal cases and has never plucked her eyebrows or had any type of foundation.

    It is always a bit double when you have to make up a person who is so above with beauty products, just going from unpicked eyebrows for 50 years to a well-shaped shape can make some customers fall off the chair haha. But they are also the funniest people, because with small simple tricks you can make such a big difference and they are always so happy!

    A make-up consultation is a make-up course of 1.5 hours where you get make-up and learn how to do it yourself at home. And that includes products for the entire sum, SEK 895.

    Here you see before and after:

    So fine!

    We started with a face primer that is smoothing and filling in pores. Only it made a big difference on the skin and can be used completely alone as well. Then we added a semi-opaque foundation gel that evens out the skin tone and becomes natural and durable on the skin. Both products can be applied with the fingers and are a quick and easy everyday base.

    We did a simple contouring with a cold bronze powder and blush on the cheeks for a little more color and shape.

    Face primer - Pixi Flawless & poreless
    Foundation - Pixi H2O Skintint (2 Nude)
    Bronzer - Paese Bronzing Powder (1M) (Only available in our store in Uppsala)
    Rouge -  gloMinerals Blush (Papaya)

    The biggest difference was the eyebrow plucking that she had booked before the make-up consultation, the fastest facelift just that :) We have only filled in a little with a pencil, mainly on the underside for a sharper base and a little extra outer edges, then finished with a fringe.

    Eyebrow Pen + Gel - Pixi Natural Brow Duo (Natural Brown)

    On the eyes we did a make-up that brightens up the look and opens the eyes, at the same time as it is very natural. We lit up the eyelid and the corner of the eye, and added a darker shade over the globe line (it is important that the fade ends up above the globe line so that the gaze is raised when looking straight ahead). And a lashliner / lash marking that marks the lash line and raises the eyes but is so thin that it does not take up any space off the eyelid.

    Eyeshadow Primer - Pixi Eye Bright Primer
    Eyeshadows - Paese Opal Eyeshadow Trio (Colorado)
    Light eyeliner -  gloMinerals Eye Pencil (Peach) (Along the waterline)
    Black lashliner / fringe marking - Kryolan Cake Eye Liner
    Black mascara - Magnetic Lash Mascara

    We finished with a natural lipstick that is matte and highlights her lip contours and highlights the lips without sticking out or taking focus.

    Lipstick - gloMinerals Suede Matte Crayon (Monogram)

      • Great on oily skin! I have oily skin myself and love it. It is not degrading so I recommend a degrading primer and powder to keep the skin less oily, but it sits super well even if you get oily and above all it does not make the skin more oily as many cream foundations can otherwise do. Since the foundation is semi-opaque, it adapts a bit to your own skin tone, which is why it is only available in 3 shades because as long as you have the right brightness mode, it will be good.

    1. Wow! She was nice before too but damn what so little can make a big difference. 10 years younger just like that. :)
