Monday Makeup Tips 6!

Monday Makeup Tips 6!

Marketing and a following

Budget also comes into creating and raising awareness of a solution to a problem – a business.  What differentiates great from okay?  Going the extra mile? What does that entail?
As Divine House of Makeup is a start-up with a high aim of great success, these are things that continuously spring to mind.

What makes me different?  First and foremost it is Jesus who is at the beginning of my brand HE is the “Divine” in Divine House of Makeup.  What distinguishes me from the next? The aim of starting off as an MUA and blossoming into an entrepreneur and having a line of my own called DHM Cosmetics.

How will this reach the nations – global style? Building up firstly a community where I am based currently then perhaps nationally to internationally.  This can be helped by regular social media posts, networking, building a rapport with those who are heading in my direction or who have already been there. Talking to advisors can help, those who may be successful in other areas of business because at the end of the day – business is business – and all have the common denominator of success.

Monday Makeup Tips 5!

Monday Makeup Tips 5!

What is in my makeup?

Ingredients, chemicals and much more.
So I came across a video on youtube and was informed of some cosmetics containing chemicals that look great on the outside but indeed can be damaging in the long-term.

1. Bismuth oxychloride – this is a chemical that gives a lot of coverage and therefore blocks pores
2. Ethylhexyl palmitate also blocks pores which our skin does not like – also found in HD Makeup Forever
3. Sodium Lareth found in cleansers and removes natural oils so this may cause the dehydrated skin outlook.

So everyone wants these things: coverage, long-lasting wear, not blocking pores.
But try to look out and research makeup chemicals that enhance your skin rather than cause long-term damage.

Tip: Blend concealer applied with fingers in a soft gentle motion to blend with makeup as much as possible.  Gives a more natural effect :)

Monday Makeup Tips 4!

Monday Makeup Tips by DHM

Today is Monday 6th June and a warm welcome to another dose of Monday Makeup Tips by DHM.

The just attended IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) was a thrill - I mean all known cosmetic brands under one roof can cause a few butterflies - and if you are an MUA you hopefully can relate.

Professionalism was another thing I took home after seeing a few familiar faces especially those MUAs I follow on instagram.  To be a professional in any field,  knowledge and keeping up-to-date especially by attending such shows and talks is what distinguishes one from the next.

So the tip of the week is....drum roll please.............................

TIP: To reduce the size of the nose add a tiny bit of highlighter straight down from the bridge of the nose all the way to the end adding some in a circular motion the end of the nose (The Rudolph part lol!)

Highlighters: MAC cosmetics, BECCA, MUA
