Professional Make up Tips for Professional Women on the Go

Professional Make up Tips for Professional Women on the Go

Want to know what professional make up artists learn at make up school? If you are a busy working woman looking to glam up your look with a bit of make up, then there is no better place to turn to, than the professionals, for a few inside tips. In the professional world, looking put together and polished is essential, and choosing to wear the right shades of make up can really add that finishing touch, as well as add that extra bit of confidence that you may, or may not be lacking.

At MUD SA, we do not believe that applying professional make up for the office has to be complicated, but what we do believe is that it should be of the very best quality, and a good place to start is with our professional makeup at MUD SA. Below, we offer some advice on professional office looks using MUD make up that you will be able to find in our catalogue or within our small, medium and large make up kits for sale.

·         The Polished and Natural Look – to get the perfect look for any day of the week, all you will need to pull this off is black mascara, a lash curler, concealer, foundation, nude lipstick, lip liner and lip gloss. First apply the concealer and then apply the foundation on your t-zone. After applying 2 coats of mascara, curl your eyelashes with your lash curler. Line your lips and apply the nude colour, then add some shine with the lip gloss and you will have the perfect clean and polished look.

·         The Refined and Striking Look – every industry is different and so is every woman. If you are more of a creative, then this look will be just right for you. What you will need is mascara, a lash curler, concealer, foundation, 2 eye shadow colours, blusher, lip liner and a bold lip colour of your choice. Apply as you would for the natural look, except hold on the mascara until you have applied the eye shadow. Apply the darker eye shadow shade above the lid and a thin line of the lighter shade under the lower lash.

·         The Confident and Bold Look – depending on your personality, this is a strong look that works well if you are in a position of power. What you will need is concealer, mascara, foundation, two shades of eye shadow that compliment your eyes, a dark shade of eye liner, two shades of blusher, and a bold shade of lipstick and lip liner. Apply concealer, foundation and eye shadow as you would for the striking look. Sweeping up, apply the light shade of blusher to the top of the cheekbone and the darker shade to the apples of the cheeks. Apply the lip liner and lipstick with a brush and you are good to go!

At MUD SA, we believe that make up is to correct, cover and conceal, and all of our make up goes through strict and scrupulous testing before receiving our “MUD-Certified” stamp of approval. It is no wonder that MUD professional make up is the expert choice for professional make up artists throughout the beauty and fashion world. Browse our online catalogue to place your order today!

Make-up Kit

Must-have Make-up Brushes in Your Make-up Kit

If you are a professional make-up artist, your kit is an essential part of your everyday life. Just like your portfolio, your make-up kit is something that should constantly change and expand, as what you do not have or do have in your kit can be the difference between an amateur and an expert.  Buying the right brushes is not always an easy task, as there is a wide variety of make-up brushes available on the market today. So, to help you complete your make-up kit, we have listed the best make-up brushes that you will need.

 

·         Foundation Brush #940 – guaranteed to be your best friend, the foundation brush can be used to apply any type of foundation, from liquid to cream. Starting from the centre and working outwards, the unique shape of this brush can do wonders when it comes to a flawless finish, offering total coverage. Your make-up kit will simply not be complete without one.

·         Angled Blush Brush – great for contouring and defining, a blusher brush is designed to be angled and soft. Used to apply blusher and bronzer across the apples of the cheeks, a quality blusher brush must blend, instead of picking up colour as it sweeps across skin.

·         Eye Shadow Brush #800 you canhave the best brand of eye shadow, but if you do not have the right brush to apply it, it can look shoddy and cheap. An eye shadow brush is perfect for blending your eye shadow along the crease of your lids.

·         Brow Brush and Comb – as the name suggests, you can use this brush for separating eyelashes and taming both rogue eyelashes and brows. An eyebrow brush is also designed to smooth your brows down and get unwanted mascara clumps out of your lashes.

·         Powder Brush – typically short, this is the monster brush of your make-up kit. The most common of all brushes, this powder brush is used to apply face powder flawlessly in a sweeping circular motion, and is a must in the world of make-up artistry.

·         Lip Brush – a vital part of your make-up kit, a thin lip brushis designed to meticulously allow lipstick or gloss to be applied more lusciously to the lips, and is ideal for making small lips look big.

·         Smudge Brush #810 – as the coveted Smokey eye never seems to go out of fashion, this is a brush that you will use daily.  Thanks to its super soft bristles, a smudge brush helps to obtain that smouldering look as you smudge away. Don’t leave home without it!

A brush set is one of the top essentials for all professional make-up kits. The aim of a make-up artist is to apply make-up in such a way that it looks like your client was born that way, and the right set of professional brushes can help you achieve that flawless professional look. As you evolve as a make-up artist, you will learn which brushes you enjoy working with the best – but to start off with, take a look at our unique collection of MUD brushes, which can be purchased with our professional MUD make-up kit.
