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.

It’s been a long year and finally – holidays are here! We wish everyone a happy and restful festive time with family and friends. To celebrate, we are getting glammed up! Most of the time, daily makeup routines consist of foundation, bronzer or blush, colour on the lips and mascara. This certainly is my daily look. For the silly season though, I want to go all out. I don’t usually focus on my eyes, and this year, I want to highlight them, add a bit more drama and make my eyes stand out. Our friend Regina has similar hair and complexion, and we used her natural beauty as the perfect palette to try out a look that’s all about the eyes. If you don’t normally wear a lot of eye makeup, this is the perfect tutorial to let your eyes sparkle. For festive dinners, celebrations and parties, this is your look!
