Katarina is one of my favourite makeup artists! Her style is a combination of dewy, glowy, and flawless makeup. Using a range of products and brands like Nars, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Napoleon Perdis, Mac ect.
Katarina does a traditional foundation base with airbrushing foundation, cream contouring and highlighting as well as the technique baking to keep makeup on for longer and help achieve a bright Hollywood highlight.
Cassandra is also one of my favourite makeup artists! She has a much more natural look, leaving a really nice natural yet dewy looking finish. Creating that perfect glow, natural looking eyes with a touch of warmth. Not only just doing makeup, but Cassandra does hair styling as well! Creating beautiful, wavy curls finished in just a few minutes! If your looking for the complete package of both beautiful makeup and hair, Cassandra is definitely the one!

First things first, it’s so important to start your makeup routine with primer! Not only does it make your makeup last longer, but it also helps keep your skin hydrated. I love to use Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Primer $59, it feels super light on the skin and smells amazing!

I change up my foundation all the time, but recently I have been using two foundations. The first one is my favourite Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, $71 in the shade Barcelona.

I like to mix this colour with my Hourglass Veil Fluid Foundation SPF15 $95 in the shade No.4 Beige. This silk-like foundation leaves a long-lasting finish, as you can build up the coverage. Also really great that it contains sunscreen, protecting your skin from the sun.

To apply the foundation I have recently been using the Double-Ended Blending Sponge from Stila $18. I love using a sponge instead of a brush as you are able to create streak-free finish.

For bronzer I love to use Stila Stay All Day Bronzer in Medium $58, the bronze colour is really nice over any foundation, to create a warm sun kissed look.

For blush I use Nars Blush $47 in the shade Orgasm. It is really warm, and peachy creating a nice healthy shimmer to the cheeks.

Sometimes when I want to stick to more of a creamy look I’ll use Nars The Multiple in the shade South Beach $62. This just gives you more of a creamy, subtle glow instead of using a powder.

One of the best mascara’s I’ve ever used is the Benefit They’re Real Lengthening Mascara $24 in Jet Black. The mascara lengthens, curls, volumes, lifts and separates lashes to give your lashes a full makeover!

Filling in your eyebrows can make such a difference, it really makes you feel finished. I like to use Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in the shade Soft Brunette $51. The pencil gives you a brush on one end and a thick pencil on the other, giving you complete control over how intense you want your brows to look.

Lastly to complete your look, and allow your makeup to set, I use Urban Decey All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray $23.
All makeup is available to purchase by following the links! I highly recommend booking a makeup application appointment Mecca Cosmetica to get your makeup done, where you are able to try on all different products to see what products best suit you! The application is $80 which is then redeemable on products.
