Tips for Long-Lasting Makeup, Kate+Quinn

Posted by hmazur07 on September 22, 2014 at 5:30 PM

One of the most wonderful thigns about my job is the versatility - I get to meet so many fascinating people from so many backgrounds.

So many life stories, so many jokes and giggles exchanged in my chair...

Kate's beauty is undeniable, but what is more stunning about her is her maturity and her calm, almost tranquill manner.

I was truly honored to do her makeup and hair for this intimate photo shoot. Kate designed this shoot as a final "story" of her love to  her husband Quinn before they continue their journey on becoming Buddhist monks and every single images captured by Amber French Photogrpahy beautifully tells their story.

The photo shoot involved two hour hike into the mountains and although Kate was a bit conserned if her look was going to last 4 hours later in the August heat, and withstand the hike,  we were all pleased to see how beautifully if lasted and photographed.


~Prepare the skin

Clean, moisturized face primed with the primer, which corresponds to your skin type.

~Choose your foundation wisely

Smart choice of color-matched foundation, used sparingly and blended meticulously.

~Be patient

Working in layers assures your makeup looks better and lasts longer, rather than applying a lot of makeup at once...

Long lasting lip color with some lip balm for later touch ups does the trick.

The color used for Kate is Jane Iredale Lip Fixation in Fascination (Perfect PInk)

Thank you guys for letting me share a couple of images...
