Formal Makeup Brisbane

Formal Makeup BrisbaneFormal night can be one of the most special and significant nights in your teenage life! I remember on my formal night everything had to be perfect from the nails and hair to the dress! All of these things are imperative however to get the perfect formal look it is crucial to get the right make-up. I like to create a makeup look that compliments your overall look of your outfit but most importantly it has to suit you!

I understand that not every girl wears makeup on a daily basis and may not want or be used to looking too overdone at their formal. In this case I like to create a more natural look that is comfortable but will still bring out and accentuate your individual and best features.

On the other hand if you are a girl who loves to wear makeup that makes a statement we can tailor a formal makeup look that suits your needs. For example you may want a smokey eye look with shimmer dust that suits the color of your dress and glossy floating lips.

Either way I think it is key to formal makeup is a flawless and even, glowing skin-tone. Also it is important to use products and makeup techniques which are photo friendly. I like to use Napoleon Stick foundation, eye primer and face primer as they are all long lasting products. You are going to have so much fun dancing with friends and you need a make-up that will stay in place! Formal time in Brisbane can be humid so a good quality powder such as MAC compact powder is a sure way to eliminate too much shine.

Once your formal makeup is complete, be sure to pack emergency supplies in your clutch as you will need to touch up during the night. Lip gloss, powder and perfume will keep you feeling like a million dollars.

Getting ready with your girlfriends is a part of the formal experience and can be entertaining a lot of fun. I do discounts on group bookings so share this exciting time with friends and save! I will come to you so that is just another less stress on your formal day.

My girlfriends and I still look back at our formal photos regularly and you will too! Some of us cringe at our ‘do it ourselves’ attempts so I can’t stress enough get a professional makeup artist with good quality products! Your photos and memories of your formal will last a life time.
