- Is there a peg that you have been dreaming about and would want to do for your wedding?

“Hindi ako nagmamakeup ,Ayoko ng make up tumatanda ako.” ( “I don’t wear make up, It ages my face.”)
Believe it or not. I usually come across clients who are afraid of putting on make up and has this same sentiments. I, myself had past horrific make up experiences when I was younger that led me to knowing make up in a deeper level.
It is easy to avoid mistakes if you know what you are doing. With a few simples steps and changes. We will get you glowing and younger in no time.
Ofcourse, everyone specially brides to be want to have that fresh and perfect make up look for every event and for their big day.
Here’s my 5 Top Make Up Mistakes That Make You Look Older:
1. Not considering a good skin and skin care routine.
Nothing beats a good canvas to start on. Just like a painter works on a clean blank pristine slate. It’s good to have a good and taken care off skin. So months before an event make sure you check on your skin.
2. Not considering proper eyebrow correction.
Your eyebrows frames your face and is very crucial in maintaning balance in your facial symmetry.
Do keep in mind mind that “Your brows should be sisters not twins.”
3. You are in your wrong shade of foundation.
You should always match your foundation tone with you face.
Did you know that a foundation too light will make you look older.
Acidic skin can make your foundation look darker and your skin older as well so we need that perfect balance.
4. Too much contouring and highlights
When done properly contouring and highlights will surely work magic for your face. It will definitely hide and bring out your facial structure and your best features.
Contouring is done with darker tones to hide and shade your flaws.
Highlighter on the other hand brings out your best features using shimmer or lighter shades.
On the other hand,
Too much contouring or highlights will make you look like drag and bring definition on your fine and age lines.
5. Not investing in a lasting and waterproof make up
With the humidity and temperature here in the Philippines. It is really best to invest in lasting and waterproof make up that will be sweat and tear proof specially for brides.
You wouldn’t want to look like a panda on your big day or event,right?🐼
But, Ofcourse It is always a bonus to have your trusted professional makeup artist to do the job for you to save you the time, money and the trouble in achieving that perfect beautiful glow and avoiding any mishap.
Plus a good hairstylist too ❤️ ( Thanks, Pao La)

Achieving that perfect bridal glow and perfect skin tone is crucial to look best for one’s wedding. As a make up artist for 10 years now. I often encounter brides who have this skin concern. They tell me that they have acidic skin.
but what really is an acidic skin?
Our skin is usually coated by an acid mantle that protects our skin from irritants such as bacteria, fungi and such. It’s normal pH ( power of hydrogen) is naturally between 4.5 and 6.2.
Many factors can affect our natural skin pH like age, oiliness, moisture, humidity that causes a decrease in the skin pH making it more acidic (<4.5)
This decrease in the pH causes the make up to oxidize. It triggers oil production as well as a darker change in the foundation color.
Any bride wouldn’t want a tanned orangy face on their wedding day right?
But don’t you fret any skilled make up artist would easily determine if you are acidic or not with their trained eyes.
Just like our recent bride Ms. Dianne ❤️
She has a very nice skin and lovely facial feature but she voiced out her concern that she is acidic and that she wants to look naturally fresh , radiant and glowing on her big day.
For Acidic brides we usually adjust the skin foundation 1-2 tones lighter than her natural skin tone.
so even though the skin oxidizes. We can still achieve that natural skin and glowing tone that we want. ❤️
Such a lovely and radiant bride. ❤️

We are glad that a lot of soon to be brides have a lot of interesting beauty questions. Thank you for your warm response on our Fresh and Radiant bridal beauty tips questions. Most of the questions we got about skin care are about how to address oily skin.
We truly understand you, Every bride wants to achieve that natural glowing fresh skin on their wedding day. This article will help you understand your skin and how to manage it better.
Oily skin stems out from excessive sebum production by your sebaceous gland. But don’t you fret. Your oily skin has its benefits as well. Did you know that it helps maintain your skin’s natural moisture barriers and protects it from bacterial and fungal infections. The downside however excessive oil production clogs pores. These clogged pores cause the problem like acne, whiteheads and blackheads. For us to address it we must consider reasons why your glands are going haywire.
Yep, most of the time the culprit are your hormones. Imbalances and changes in your hormonal activity can affect your oil glands production. Have you ever noticed to be more prone to oiliness every time you are due for your menstrual cycle.
Tip: Once you are familiar that hormones are the culprit during that time of the month change up your oil control beauty regimen. You can also ask help from your friendly dermatologist for proper medication.
When your body becomes stressed, It’s response will increase your Cortisol production in turn causes your skin to be oily. Stress also induce water loss inhibiting the ability of the skin to repair itself.
Tip: Take one day at a time we know that wedding preparation can be stressful and tedious but don’t let it take a toll on your body. Sharing with you Matthew 6:34 “Never be anxious about the next day, for the next day will have its own anxieties.” and prayer also helps “Throw all your anxiety on [God], because he cares for you,” says 1 Peter 5:7
3. Improper regimen
Harsh products that are unsuitable for your skin dries it up and triggers excessive oil production. The oil production compensates for the lack of moisture on the surface of your skin.
Tip: Find a product that is mild and gentle on your skin.
Heat and humidity combination can set your oil glands into overdrive. Unfortunately our weather here in the Philippines naturally causes increased sebum production.
Tip: Use appropriate skin care products to cater you skin needs ( Tips on these will follow so stay tuned)
Your skin type maybe passed to you from your parents.
Tip: A good skin care regimen can help you in controlling oiliness
Are you taking medications for contraception and hormonal imbalance? yes, they do trigger oil production.
Tip: Don’t worry, Your skin will return to normal once you’re off medication.
7. Diet and Lifestyle
I’m sorry to inform you that sugary, greasy food maybe the culprit to your oily complexion.
But did you know that products like milk, butter and yes, cheese can also cause greasiness and clogged pores.
Tip: Change your eating habit to a clean and green diet. Your body will surely thank you for it. You’ll be feeling good inside and out.
I hope you were able to find out the culprit behind that greasiness. We wish nothing but your fresh and radiantly glowing skin on your big day. ❤️
