bronzed sunset

I don’t know about you, but for me a sunset is the most beautiful vision to watch. It’s stunning, romantic, and it leads to my favourite part of the day, the night. Thinking of sunsets, I created this beautiful bronzed smokey look that´s wearable from dawn to dusk. Yes, you read right, a bronzed SMOKEY eye look. You might think that a smokey eye is only for celebrities and their MUAs, but that is not true. You too can achieve this sexy eyeshadow look! I know that this is one of the most feared looks to create because of the difficulty of the technique. I can show you how to create a simple bronzed tone eye, that anyone can achieve. Before we start, remember 2 key points: 1. Keep the darkest colour towards the lash line. It keeps the makeup modern and fresh, and ensures you are drawing more attention to the eye. 2. Blend, blend, blend. Brushes are super important to get the best blend. When it comes to a smokey eye, it doesn’t …

bright eyes

Eyes are a beautiful part of the face. We want to highlight them and show them off. But did you know that focusing on the face is important to get great eye definition? Sometimes we get carried away with fancy eyeshadows, or over-apply eyeliner and forget that the rest of the face is the palette for amazing eye styling. Start with the face first, smooth your complexion, apply natural colour, highlight cheekbones, lips and groom brows – these essential steps will get you the bright eyes you want, just as much as a smoky eye tutorial or your new mascara. Remember – bright eyes on a dull complexion won’t have the same effect…

combat shine

from mum to daughter

I remember when I was a little girl and I used to watch my mum doing her makeup. I was amazed. I loved the colours, the powders and the sparkles. I can say that the person who started me on makeup was my mum. And I’m very thankful that the person I love the most is a connection to my passion When we are young, the moment we start using makeup is as important as the day we buy our first bra or our first pair of heels. We all remember the first time we applied liner and the fear we had of poking our eye. So what´s better than taking this step that connects us more as mother and daughter in a fun and relaxed way. That´s why I’m going to give you some tips to guide your daughter to a clean, conscious & curious beauty lifestyle. First of all, it is important to leave prohibitions aside. Since I was young, makeup has been a way of expression and I´m thankful that my mum …

matchy matchy

Sometimes it’s fun to match! We match our shoes and handbags on special occasions, earrings with necklaces. Even a beach towel and bikini. How about eyes and lips? Pairing eyeshades with a matching lip colour is a great way to create a seamless look. It’s not always about finding the exact same shade of eyeshadow and lipstick – it’s more about finding complimentary colours that go together. A bit of this + a bit of that = perfection! We’ve broken down 2 looks to show you which beauties from our range to choose to create Andrea’s looks for yourself… Look #1 – light terracotta + ruby red

find your neutral

As a makeup artist, I love playing with dramatic eyes, dark lips and lots of highlighter. In my makeup kit, I have lipsticks of every colour, but I used to leave the nude tones for smokey eyes or stronger “eye looks” as I felt like they didn’t bring enough colour. I decided recently to leave my “intense dramatic makeup look” phase behind and explore my “is she even wearing makeup?” phase… Soft skin, together with a dewy and lightly bronzed look and neutral lip shade is the perfect mix for healthy looking skin. But how do you choose the ideal tone for you without ending with pale lips? Remember, we want to look natural but alive! And not as if our lips had vanished into our face!

easy beauty

By now we have kick-started 2019 and are getting back into the swing of things. Life has returned to normal, after the holidays. For many, the year has begun with a bang as people juggle work, family, diet & exercise. Who has time for long and complicated beauty routines? We love Ere Perez products because they are no-fuss and easy to use. You don’t have to be an expert to look good! We have created 2 great looks that are quick and simple to do. For when you’re running out of time in the morning, or have to change after work for an evening event, these looks will save you. The mirror is our friend, but in moderation. There are more fun things to do than spend hours staring into it!

hyperpigmentation: don’t cover it, glow with it!

Hyperpigmentation is no joke! As a makeup artist, I come across many women asking for a full coverage foundation. They ask me to apply foundation & concealer, plus makeup powder all over the face, in order to cover their pigmentation as much as they can. But let’s be honest: too much makeup doesn’t make us feel fresh or free! Something in these women’s eyes tells me that their hyperpigmentation makes them feel angry, sad, insecure… and basically unpretty. I know it affects them whatever their story is: pregnancy, sun pigmentation or age pigmentation. Personally, I think that every feature of you is beautiful and makes you unique, and you don’t have to feel ashamed. I’m going to share some tips on how to wear a light fresh makeup while covering your pigmentation. The secret is the GLOW.

here comes the sun

It’s the start of summer in the southern hemisphere. Think long days, balmy nights, endless swimming and lots of sun! We love summer, it’s a big part of the Australian lifestyle. Bring on beach days, salty skin and vegan ice cream. Tropical heat is amazing when our winter bodies first start to warm up, but some days are just too hot (and sweaty!) Beach umbrellas & hats are essential, sandals come out to play and no way do we want to spend hours blow-drying hair.
