How to prevent makeup eyeliner smudge ?

Is your eyeliner smudge easily ? This is a common problem where eyeliner always smudge after 1 or 2 hours of makeup. There a few reason why your eyeliner smudge easily , one of the reason is you have an oily eyes lid compare to others. No matter what type of liner you used it, even you had chose the waterproof liquid liner , it is still smudging.

Here is a tip to minimise the chances of eyeliner to be smudging, you can use the eyelid primer as a base and set it with loose powder than you apply the waterproof liquid eyeliner. After applying the liner, you can use the eyeshadow powder to set the liner to fix the liner. That about it ! You will realise the liner last longer then before. Give it a try.

As for what kind of primer work better and what kind of waterproof liner work better for your ? I tested some of the primer and liners and almost all the Makeup artist singapore using it too , it is  Urban decay eyeshadow primer potion original. It work well for eyes shadow too and eyeshadow last longer than usual.  As for the eyeliner  , it is from Stilla , you can get it from Sephora singapore.













what kind of makeup products are suitable for oily skin?

Makeup is unique to individual as we all have different features, different skin tone colours and different skin types. Have you ever tried applying your foundation and after 1 or 2 hour, your face start to look like a glitter ball ? what happen is by default , we will use the blotting paper to remove oil but this is not working as the skin will acknowledge that your skin is lack of oil and your body to produce more oil straight away.

As mentioned earlier , we all have different skin type so  you have to identify your skin type before you start to apply makeup. For oily skin type, you need to choose foundation that has the functionality to matt your skin and control oil. I tried many products and would like to recommend a liquid foundation that you can use for oily skin. it is from Urban decay all nighter (see the link below if you want to read more) , it is really matt and it ensure your makeup last whole day no doubt as i tried it myself and it works really well. If you do not want to have too much makeup on or just want to look super natural , then you can use compact powder from Makeup forever , this compact powder is able to give you sufficient coverage and you can always layer it for more converge. The amazing thing is ,it does not cake up your skin and it looks really smooth

What do you think a natural bridal makeup look should look like ?

A bridal makeup look can be vary for everyone , some brides in singapore , they tend to prefer something that is more natural and clean but then yet they have to look beautiful and flawless . Thus, they are looking for makeup finishing that is not thick and dramatic.

Simple makeup application is a skill of a professional artist, this requires a lot of knowledge and experience to ensure every steps you do and application is to target the problem and enhance the feature of a bride.

A nude makeup look basically means that you does not feel the makeup is very thick and cakey after the makeup application and it feels good as you look flawless and fresh with a little touch of every part of your face. This is the truth, a lot of artist using the thick foundation straight away on the face, and to be frank, stick foundation or cream foundation does cover flaw better. Thus, it is a short cut and do not require any more skill to achieve the bridal makeup look.All you can see is the a lever of the canvas and like mention earlier, makeup look cakey and thick.

If you want to look for a trustworthy bridal makeup artist in singapore, please ensure the artists are able to do explain to you that what kind of makeup is suitable for you for your bridal actual day. If you are looking for a natural bridal makeup, please research more or ask more detail before booking for your artist.

When come to natural makeup , not every individual suit natural makeup , what i am saying here is if the bride has problem skin such as redness itchy sensitive skin, pigmentation , scars, then she needs heavier coverage .As a bridal makeup artist, we will always consult and communicate with our lovely brides and inform them the skin condition before  apply the makeup. The end of the day, artist only apply thicker foundation when needed because what we need to ensure is our brides look beautiful and flawless on her wedding day
