Our friend Melanie is back with another blog post this week. Melanie is a personal stylist from the Berkshires, United Kingdom where she helps people choose the styles and colors that work best for them, including makeup. Today Melanie has chosen to share some of her unique insight and suggestions for creating everyday style with an opulent influence.
Loud cheer from West Berkshire! The long awaited warmer air and lighter evenings are bringing some welcomed changes. My orange tree is packed with blossom buds and its first fruit is coming on beautifully!
Across the pond, in the beautiful Berkshire’s of the U.S, Jane Iredale’s team continue to perfect what they do best: ‘everything-makeup’, for every woman. I say every woman – I’m working with a big mix of wardrobe and image wishes, colouring (eyes, skin, hair) and variety of lifestyles. For makeup, the two top wishes from my clients are: “A healthy look and easy to apply”. This goes for everyday makeup right up to bold and wa-wow. My jane iredale ‘happy-kit’ has it all covered!
Ruby & Grace confirm wedding flowers for 2013 are vibrant and bold with grand styling touches. The big blooms will be used to create a theatrical feel. For accent shades, the use of one main flower colour with a strong accent colour (peach and emerald, lemon and grey, or coral and turquoise) will be a popular selection.
Remember the two top makeup wishes from my clients: “A healthy look and easy to apply”? G may be for gorgeousness and the new Gatsby but it’s also for Glow, yes, Glow Time!
Three months in to using Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream and its close friend, Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener – the ultimate coverage is at my fingertips. Incredible cover, the usual light-ness of the jane iredale bases, SPF 25 and quick to blend. It happily works over the eye lids and evens out everything it touches. I personally use BB7 and BB5.
My first name is Melanie..but as I don’t use any other makeup brand for myself or my clients, I came up with another definition of ‘BB’ – “a one-Brand-Betty” – a woman who has arrived at a happy place with her chosen makeup brand and has no reason to shop elsewhere!
