Pin-point concealer is my favourite form of “foundation”, It’s the most natural look on the skin. Im just going to say it…Skin always looks better than foundation! It just does! But sometimes we have a few minor imperfections that need some attention. This technique is the technique I personally use on a daily basis, sometimes I use it on its own, or sometimes combined with a sheer foundation for an even more policed look.

What it is: Pin-point concealing is when you take a tiny brush and perfectly “dot” concealers on an imperfection until it has covered over it, blending it into the majority of your surrounding natural skin.

This way, your skin looks like there is no make-up on it what so ever but you are left with a healthy, even natural finish.

What you need: 2-3 Brushes: A small pin-point brush, a medium concealer brush for under the eyes and larger blemished patches on the skin and a medium fluffier brush to “buff” the edges into the skin, You need a great concealer (I preferrer a cream based concealer as apposed to a liquid or stay fast one) But what ever you do choose, make sure it is full coverage. If you want an extra bit of polish, a sheer foundation before any concealer is great! I also use a colour corrector now and again when my skin requires it, but this is optional. You will also need some loose translucent powder to set the work and flatten any textures.

Where to put it: concealing under the eyes is a must, next to the nose (inner corner of the eyes) where there is any darker blue tones (for this you would use a yellow / pink or orange colour corrector and then your skin toned concealer over) You would conceal over any pigmentation that is distracting especially pigmentation around the eyes (as this type of pigmentation makes one look tired) Also pin-point conceal over any pimples / redness you may have (often around the chin or mouth area)

DO’S: This look is best with a cream blusher and cream eyeshadows, Slightly enhanced brows (but not extreme as this look is supposed to look like you have woken up looking perfect) and balmy looking bitten lips.

DONT’S: Don’t get the concealer colour wrong, as this can look very bad! Don’t use light-reflecting concealers as this will flash back as little dots over your face, Don’t use a shade that is too light as it does the same as light-reflecting ones, Don’t use a concealer that is too dark as this just looks like you have dark dots everywhere.

I generally have 2 different cream concealers, one light that blends into my chin and around my mouth perfectly, then a darker one on my cheeks and forehead as the top part of my face is naturally a bit darker than my lower half of my face, then I generally mix the two for under my eyes.

This particular look is AMAZING on freckles skin, mature skin and teenagers.

Airbrush make-up is a light-weight makeup applied through an air gun machine that produces a thin, even layer of makeup and creates a very natural flawless appearance. Because it’s such a fine mist your true skin tone shows through which makes it so natural.

Airbrush foundation is high in coverage, but thin in texture, It is as natural as you want with unbelievable coverage! It lays on top of your skin and fills in any flaws, instead of accentuating them.Its gives you a velvety matte pore-less finish so you never look shiny.

Airbrush make-up is silicone based, non-toxic and hypoallergenic. It’s also sanitary – more so than using sponges or other make-up applicators that germs can be attracted to.

Its great on Textured skins, Acne, Wrinkles, Open pores, pigmentation, scars, bruising, blemishes, tattoos, rosacea, burns and even psoriasis and doesn’t need powdering or touching up. Airbrushing holds up extremely well to humid conditions and is waterproof and lasts until you wash your face. It’s never a heavy or cakey finish or texture.

Your makeup will stand up to sweat, tears, hugs and all the kisses in between.
Airbrushing allows the skin to breath so it feels like your not wearing any makeup at all and gives you the “no makeup” look.

The last thing you need to worry about is your make-up wearing off on your wedding day. Airbrush make-up will last until you wash your face. So you can do as much cheek to cheek dancing as you’d like without worrying about your make-up rubbing off.

Because of these characteristics, it is recommended for brides and other active individuals. Film and television make-up artists have been airbrushing for over a decade. Because of its flawless finish, it is the only technique used with high definition television.
