Pat McGrath is a trendsetter of a last seasons makeup looks. She uses a metallic and pearl eyeshadows for a smokey eye makeup. Apply false lashes to get the glamour look. On lips apply brocade or highlighter and stay inspired by Vlada Haggerty make-up looks.
Classic evening makeup is a dark eye and red lipstick. Smokey eye is the most popular in glamour look. To blend you can use for ex. MAC 286 blending brush. Kohl is the long lasting eyeliner, which is supereasy to blend.

Dom Tkacza is a beautiful place In Poland, village called Rościszów placed in the heart of the Owl Mountains. This is perfect space to take a rustic photo shoots which were published on Magazyn Wesele and SweetWedding.pl. My makeup inspiration were interiors, details and stylizations. Check out also the autumn session in here.
The book I would like to recommend is ‘Ugly Beauty’ written by a journalist – Ruth Brandon. You can see the review in here and buy e-book in here. It is a book about makeup, business, love and life. This book is the answer: How to be succeed in a beauty industry? How L’oreal i Helena Rubinstein create the empire?
What about the book?
Did you know that a lot of polish people were a great businessman in a beauty industry? Maksymilian Faktorowicz from Zduńskia Wola, known as Max Factor was founder of a first make-up studio in Los Angeles. He was the inventor of a word ‘make-up’ and won Oscar for the characterization. He invented a pan stick and was creator of a conception of tv make-up.
Helena Rubinstein was a Jewish girl from Poland. She opened her first cosmetics store in Australia and started to sell the luxury cram based on the oils. She invented a lipstick and her products were loved by women in all over the world.
Finally, the most contemporary, polish businessman from Przemyśl – Wojciech Inglot. He created an INGLOT. He invent the Freedom System. The system gives women the possibility of create their own color palette.
Eugene Schueller was a French pharmacist, who discover the first safe hair dye. He was a scientist but he didn’t like work at the university. He loves working on his own, even 18 hours a day.
The story of makeup shows, that only a hard work and a determination can gives you a success. Cosmetics are connected with economy, politics and industry. Through the second World War all companies were stopped but after the war women wanted to feel beautiful. Entrepreneurship and uncompromising attitude gives the success.
This book is worth to read. It shows the makeup history, the beauty business in XX century and a connections between cosmetics and politics. It gives you recipe for the success: hard work and no sleep. You should definitely check this book out!!

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. I was writing about color and furs which is going to be the most exciting trend also in make-up. Check out my make-up look photographed by Emil Kołodziej, of course at Artystyczna Alternatywa ! 🙂
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… 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”.
Dziś o makijażu będzie… prawie nic! Za to trochę bardziej osobiście. O tym, co w życiu najważniejsze, trochę o ślubnych sukniach, trochę o łzach wzruszenia.
5 listopada – to już dziś! Wasza pierwsza rocznica ślubu, kochani Moniko i Maćku… życzymy miłości!!
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.
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.
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.
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!

Where the make-up inspirations start? Lately I am reading a lot of books and trade magazines, not only watching the catwalk make-up. I decided to tell you about some of my recommendations and what is the best make-up inspiration for me. “Love, Style, Life” by Garance Dore is the book I loved.
What about the book?
The book has inspiring layout and is published with care and elegance. Inside there are not only the stylish illustrations but also a lot of practical information. You can see the “title inside” – everything is about fashion people, clothes, style, make-up… but there is also a lot of love and aiming the happiness.
Your style gives you power to communicate without words, so ask yourself – what do you know about you and your style? The same question goes with a make-up – if you know what you want to say, it is easier to fell self-confident. Inside the book you will find a lot of tips about the New York and Paris style.
Garance Dore is a very stylish woman, the beauty is relative so it is important who you are inside. Don’t judge book by its cover – okay, but if you are happy inside, you’ll be beautiful outside.
Sans elegance de coeur, il n’y a pas d’elegance – bez elegancji serca, elegancja nie istnieje.
Yves Saint Laurent
It is beautiful to be a woman, but you need to feel accomplish. Even the best make-up artist can’t hide your sadness or stress. Don’t try to be perfect, challenge yourself – try to accept your pros and coins. This practice makes you happy and naturally beautiful.
What about the make-up?
Eyebrows – well styled eyebrows could change the look of the face. Even the best make-up without eyebrows done well, is poor. Don’t forget about the brows!
Red lipstick – is your power. If you need to feel brave and full of energy – use a red lipstick. You can use it daily or only at weekends. Remember to choose the right shade! I was writing about it in here.
How to take a perfect photo – Everyone wants to look perfect when taking selfies, but sometimes you just don’t have “IT”. Garance gives you some simply tips: use natural light, make your skin look flawless and find your better profile!
I can recommend this book everyone, you need to finally find a time for yourself!
