Make-up by Candy Jane {Giveaway}

Yesterday I went and spent the afternoon with my friend who has recently moved from Zimbabwe to Joburg. Candy is such a phenomenal make-up artist and she offered to give me a little make-over.

Candy uses airbruhing to give your face a flawless finish without it feeling to heavy with make-up. There are so many advantages to using airbrushing as opposed to traditional foundation that we all use on a daily basis. Apart from it's porcelain finish, airbrushed make-up lasts a lot longer and has a much better 'holing' factor than foundation. For brides, airbrushing is an absolute MUST as it will keep your make-up looking flawless throughout your wedding and if/when there are tears, you don't have to worry about ruining your gorgeous face.

I've had my make-up professionally done on a number of occasions for things like magazine articles and weddings. I always find that the make-up artist does everyone else's make-up so beautifully but I'm never happy with mine. Wherever I can I always ask to do my own make-up because I know how I like it done and when I do my own make-up I always feel a lot more confident than when someone else does it. 

This is because we all see things differently and what's pretty to one person may not be pretty to another - this is the beauty of personal style. We also know our faces so well, if you are like me, you put on basic make-up everyday which, over the years, you have perfected to a look that you are happy with. When someone comes along and does your make-up, they are working with your face and your flaws for the first time so it's not always easy for them to get your make-up perfect the first time. 

Candy knew what kind of make-up I usually do and was comfortabe with so she used this as her guideline when deciding on a style that would best suit my face. I absolutely loved the look she did on me!! It was natural with a slight bit of sparkle. This is the kind of make-up I would want for my wedding day. I think bride's should look natural but it is the most important day of your life so you also don't want to look like you do every other day. Candy found the perfect balance between a natural and special occassion look.

Thank-you so much for the gorgeous make-over my talented friend xx
