Mówi się, że dzień kobiet jest wyjątkowym dniem w roku, przeznaczonym tylko dla nich. Robią tego dnia coś dla siebie, znajdują czas na odpoczynek, spotykają się i wspólnie świętują. Mój ostatni rok był bardzo “kobiecy”. Spotkałam na swojej drodze wiele różnych, damskich osobowości i to dzięki nim tak wiele się nauczyłam.

Color your make-up look!

Color on TOP

Today is the last day of November and the snowy December is going closer and closer. Don’t forget about the catwalk inspirations.

Color in bridal make-up

The very common thing is to avoid colors in the bridal make-up. Why is that? Color is the main thing in make-up generally. You can’t be afraid of color – trust your make-up artist and choose the one which is best for you.

Color in photographic make-up

There is no rules in this kind of make-up! Pink shadows which you see at the photos is the INGLOT pigment powder. It seems to be very intensive but remember about the flash effect. I apply the color with classic black eye liner but you can apply it with a fluffy brush on the cheekbones, lips and temple. Use a different catwalk colors like green, blue or orange. It must be perfect!

Rustykalny ślub na SweetWedding.pl !! A co z makijażem?

Rustykalny… czyli jaki?

Klimat rustykalnych wesel, stylizacje czy też inspiracje w makijażu to trend przewijający się od paru lat jako alternatywa dla klasycznych ślubnych aranżacji. Przy planowaniu wesela warto określić już na początku wybrany motyw  – ułatwi to podejmowanie decyzji co do szczegółów, a także usprawni całą organizację. Rustykalny według słownika języka polskiego to “mający związek z wsią i jej mieszkańcami, mający cechy wiejskie”.

TV Make-up for a book advertising spot – “Kuchenny Kredens”

Working on a film set is one of my favorite job. This time I met a great team at Panopticon Films during the project for Wydawnictwo Znak and Monika from Kuchenny Krednes. Monika is in my make-up ❤

TV make-up

The entertainment industries involved in producing and distributing movies need make-up artists who can deal with the TV make-up. The camera lens has no mercy, you need to look perfect. Sometimes a small, low-budget movie industry are not hiring the make-up artist. Because of that, the end result is always poor.
The TV make-up should matt the skin, cover the wrinkles, redness etc. It is a very tough make-up, but in front of the camera it looks very soft. The light is very important. I was writing about the light on the photo session in here.

Mat and cover

In the TV make-up everything can be ruined because of the stress and a light which increases the temperature. That’s why we need to do a few things in the make-up before we use the HD powders. The good idea is to wash the face with soap – it pull together your pores. You can use also a special preparation or cosmetic to do so. Use a make-up base and appropriate color of concealers and foundations.

Cover

The foundation covers not only the face but also shoulders, neck and ears. The people like presenters or celebrities often has a very elegance outfit so you need to be careful with the cosmetics.  Dermablend is a perfect foundation for the body and legs. It covers every wrinkles, tattoos, scars. Remember, that on the darker places on the body (ex, knees) you should apply the highlighter.

Eyes

Even the darkest eye shadows in front of the camera are pale. Things like brocade use very carefully, only in fashion make-up look, never in the business make-up.

Lips

Perfect are matte shadows. You need to check every pink color – don’t choose the one with a blue pigment in it. Don’t forget to do the make-up also for men!
Make-up can give you a lot of self-confidence in front of the camera, don’t be scared!

Monika wrote a cookbook “KUCHENNY KREDENS – POLSKA KUCHNIA PRZEDWOJENNA”. You’ll find there a lot of inspiring recipes. You can get the book in here. In the meantime take a look how the work on a film set looks like.

…camera…action!!

On the set I always meet a great and very creative people, and this time was the same! You never know what you’ll need face, in this kind of work. It surprises every day and you should be prepared for everything – in make-up as well. I have always with me the mattifying powder from INGLOT or Kryolan. In front of the camera the face needs to look bright but not be flash.

W epoce, kiedy jesteśmy zalewani kolejnymi kulinarnymi trendami, egzotycznymi i szalenie przepłaconymi produktami z najdalszych zakątków globu, dzięki Wydawnictwu Znak powstanie książka o kuchni domowej i jej historii. Takiej kuchni, jaką tworzyły pokolenia kobiet przed nami i z których doświadczenia my dzisiaj możemy i powinnyśmy czerpać. Które tak jak i my miały przecież takie same kulinarne dylematy i musiały dzień w dzień zachodzić w głowę co by tu ugotować, często z ograniczonych przecież zasobów.

ABC of Beauty Make-up

How to create the perfect beauty make-up? What’s the difference between the classical, daily make-up and this one? Does everything needs to be perfect? Check out my new project: my make-up looks photographed by Emil Kołodziej at Artystyczna Alternatywa. Read about the beauty tricks and the cooperation at the photo session.

Moodboard & team

Good idea goes first. Before shooting you need to create the plan of your make-up look, think about the ideas and prepare the moodboard. That’s a plan (presentation) where every artist meets his concept. The key for the perfect moodboard is… our creativity!

We are as good as the people who we work with. It’s very important to find a perfect team for the shooting. The make-up artist should choose the model with a perfect face and flawless skin, wonder about the photographer who is best in beauty photos. Discuss the ideas with the stylist and the hairstylist to find the best results.

The beauty make-up

Beauty make-up is very characteristic. It’s not daily or a stage make-up. You need to use a professional cosmetics, which should be selected for the skin tone. Photographic make-up should be more expressive, foundation needs to be fully covering. You can spread this one on the shoulders, neck, cleavage and every visible part of the skin (ex. hands when american frame). The flash makes colors more pale, so you can chose the intensive colors for the eye shadows and a little bit darker foundation. Don’t forget about the powder and setting spray, but remember that skin should stay as natural as it is. Watch out with the blush, be precise, because the lens has no mercy. Perfect for the eye will be matte eye shadows with a perfect blend. For the lips always use a lip liner and meld it with the lipstick. Don’t forget about the face contouring (you can do it with the marvelous Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit). Before shooting discuss with the photographer which places on the face should stay sparkly or glow (you put highlighter, brocade, glitter or others) because the light on this places needs to be aimed very precise.

Set-up & the light

The make-up artist needs to discuss with the photographer: the light, set-up the model and other details. It is used to set the white or grey background for the beauty photos, normally with the one or two light source. The make-up artist should be present for the photo shooting, sometimes operate the blende for avoid the shadows on the model’s face. Before shooting choose the light: soft or heavy light. It’s perfect when the photographer stick the camera with the computer – you can see the pictures on-line.

Retouch

You will get the perfect end result when you discuss the retouch with the photographer. The final treatment should be precise, because the photos are often close-ups. Make-up trends shows, that the face should be natural, glam and detailed, so the retouch should be soft and don’t give “plastic skin” effect. Good luck!

Jojo Moyes – “We wspólnym rytmie”

Jojo Moyes – “We wspólnym rytmie”

To już nie pierwszy raz, gdy miałam przyjemność wziąć udział w świetnym projekcie realizowanym przez Wydawnictwo Znak. Tym razem poznałam blogerki, które zajmują się… czytaniem!! Te cudowne kobiety nie tylko mają świetny gust literacki, ale także robią na swoich blogach piękne zdjęcia – inspirują każdego dnia!

Książkę szczególnie poleca Mrs Wierzbicka!! <3

Sesję realizowaliśmy w Studiu Czarnobyl w Warszawie. Wzięło w niej udział sześć kobiet, które znają się na literaturze jak nikt inny! Każda z moich klientek miała inny typ urody. Za każdym razem przekonuję się, że podstawą dobrego makijażu jest odpowiedni dobór podkładu. Pamiętajcie, że zawsze sprawdzamy go na kości żuchwy i szyi, dobieramy odpowiednią tonację i kolor. Dla każdej dziewczyny warto dopasować inne cienie oraz inną pomadkę, w zależności od predyspozycji. Przy małych ustach sprawdzą się błyszczyki, przy większych, pomadki matowe. Makijaż jest bardzo ważnym elementem sesji zdjęciowej, żadna nie powinna się odbyć bez niego! A tymczasem… zapraszam do lektury 🙂

Dobry jeździec wie, że ma tylko jedną szansę, aby zaskarbić sobie szacunek konia. Wie też, że przez jeden wybuch gniewu może na zawsze stracić jego zaufanie. Konia można bowiem skrzywdzić tylko raz. Potem latami odbudowuje się zerwaną relację. Z ludźmi bywa podobnie… 

Książkę możecie kupić tutaj, polecam!! Jojo Moyes – “We wspólnym rytmie”

Fashion goes first

What about the catwalk inspirations?

Colorful furs! That’s the most expressive trend on a catwalk in this season. Coats are replaced by colorful furs, which are also the make-up inspiration. Pink, red, yellow is just a beginning. On the fabric we can see the ombre effect where the intensive color goes into black or navy blue. Color should wake-up the grey of autumn vibes!

Blue is on top! Every shadow of a blue, navy blue or turquoise are the sky and galaxy inspired colors. On the catwalk we can see the stars, planets, orbits, space ships, rockets or just cosmos prints. In 2018 is the anniversary of the Apollo 8 mission.

Metallic glow are: clothes, details, jewelry, make-up looks. Trend setter in make-up is amazing Patricia McGrath who cosmetics collection is available at Sephora in October. Colors gold and silver are irreplaceable.

Nude color is the second skin. It comes from the celebrity world, this season the nude color is successfully present on the catwalk and in make-up. The trend goes with the natural and fresh look, flawless skin and nude lipsticks.

Make-up

The most important trend will be the metallic glow inspiration. On the lips, eyelids, on the cheekbones or eyebrows. Schlagmetal (gold and silver) is coming back into favor. We can use matte lipstick with a brocade shadow or highlighter. Everything should give us the carbon copy.

The wet make-up is the next trend. It is the continuation of the summer vibes. It’s perfect to use the Studio Eye Gloss by MAC. To highlight your cheekbones you can use not only the highlighter but also an oil, for example my favorite Nuxe.

Fot. Ewa Lena Brzozowska

Color in make-up takes the inspiration from the catwalk furs. We use the most intensive colors, shadows and forms. Blue, yellow, orange, green or navy blue. We apply it on the lips, on the temples, cheekbones. The lipsticks are in claret or red wine color.

Nude is a shadow, which balance the intensive colors. Make-up no make-up leads the way. Just the natural and flawless skin, mascara, nude shadows and nude lipstick. Face contouring has a soft effect.

Fot. Ewa Lena Brzozowska

In the eye make-up all the variations about the liners will be on top. Liner, eye pencil, shadows etc. You’ll see this inspiration in the next photo session in which I created the make-up look. Stay in touch!

What about the nails and perfumes?

Nails are metallic as the make-up is. Especially in blue colors, inspired with the cosmos prints. The shadows will be deep and intensive. Perfumes will be also more expressive and tough. The scents are rose, musk, cacao, or bergamot. Chanel No 5 will be again – top of the top!
