“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. ❤️

Always remember that “less is more” in applying make up to achieve that natural glow. For Everyday make up, light and natural should always be the key. Choose make up colors that will enhance your features not overcome them, they should make you still look like yourself.
Here are tips on how to achieve the Natural make up look:
- First of all the foundation should match your skin tone. or better yet use powder if your skin is already perfect ( most Filipina’s do already). Don’t put on too much foundation. ( it will make your face look cakey or pulvorinsh 🙂 )
- If your buying a shade for you i suggest you try the shade not on your hand, but on a part of your cheek /anyhwere around the face area just to make sure the tone matches your face.
- Eyebrows should always be well-balanced. brows should not be darker than your hair color. So choose a shade that will definitely match your hair.
- Eyeshadow colors are preffered to be on the neutral shades (browns,peach,bronze ( I like bronze it adds up a little drama on your look )).
- Curl your lashes to open up your eyes. This instantly brighten
- Apply thin coats of mascara on the upper and lower lashes of your lids.
- Lip colors should be close to the original color of the lips. pink,coral shades will do 🙂
Eyes are the windows to the soul.
