Let’s face it - 2020 hasn’t exactly panned out the way we thought it would, but one thing is still for sure...
Summertime is STILL our time to shine, no matter what!
One of our favorite ways to celebrate summer (whether we’re at home or socially distancing elsewhere) is by showing off our glowing skin, and nobody knows glowy skin better than makeup artists. We'll take every glowy skin trick and tip we can get our hands on (our recent obsession has been learning through TikTok), but luckily for us, we have our very own makeup artist in the Sol Family who has some tricks up her sleeve.
Say hello to Amanda, our Trade Marketing Manager who also happens to be an extremely talented makeup artist! (Check out her Instagram at @amandajaymakeup )
With years of experience under her belt, she has her own tried-and-true secrets on how to achieve the perfect glowy skin every client covets - continue reading to see what tips she shared with us!
What’s the top request you get from clients when it comes to makeup/skin concerns?
Amanda: As a bridal & editorial makeup artist, the first thing I usually whip out for every client is skincare. Glowing, healthy-looking skin is always THE top request, and highlighting is key when it comes to a big event, night out, or on set shoot. In my opinion, there’s no such thing as too much highlight 😉
It brings a next-level element to the look and a youthful, refreshed look to the skin.
What is your favorite glow secret?
Amanda: Glowmotions Body Glow Oils are probably one of my most favorite and coveted items that I have. The first time I ever experienced this product was during a masterclass for celeb makeup artist NamVo and I was instantly captured by the instant glow and illumination it gave to the skin on the model. Since then, it has been a staple in my kit and I come across more and more friends and colleagues who use Glowmotions as their best-kept secret for that glowing-from-within vibe.
What makes that “makeup artist’s touch” different from our regular makeup routines?
Amanda: As a makeup artist all we do is mix…lipstick, foundation, primer, moisturizer you name it! If you ask a makeup artist what lip color they used on you, there’s usually a laundry list behind it of all the beautiful colors to get that perfect shade that was custom made just for you.
With the Glowmotions Glow Oils, I love to mix to get that perfect balance and create a beautiful look that is custom for my clients. That is one of the best things about this product (along with the scent of course) is that they really are fluid and look great on all skin tones.
Here are my current favorite tips!
