Welcome to The Ageless Makeup Series!
Last spring, I had the privilege of experiencing Modern Beauty by Mariah Smith. Part of the Modern Beauty portraiture package includes having your makeup professionally done by Sonoma County makeup artist and esthetician, Veronica Passalacqua.
She created a beautiful makeup look for the photo shoot As you probably already know, it’s always a good idea to wear heavier than normal makeup – and maybe some false eyelashes – when having photos done.
While Veronica was doing my makeup that day, she gave me a few makeup tips that I could use when doing my own makeup both for photos and for everyday looks. Suddenly I realized I had a new resource and an expert at that. I finally had someone who could help me with my makeup dilemmas. I asked Veronica if she would be willing to share her tips with me and with you, and lucky for us, she said yes!
One of my biggest ongoing makeup dilemmas is learning how to achieve an everyday natural look as my face ages. I have many issues today that I didn’t have ten or even two years ago. I would love to learn how to address those individual issues in a simple and realistic way and I knew Veronica could help. We put our heads together and came up with The Ageless Makeup Series.
I asked my followers on Facebook to tell me about the makeup dilemmas they encounter as they age and wow, did I get a huge response! I took the information, compiled a list of the issues and brought them to Veronica.
Over the next several weeks or more, Veronica and I will be posting short videos addressing one, sometimes two issues at a time. These are not professional videos created by production staff with a camera person and a film studio. These are real life videos, made in Veronica’s beautiful studio with just Veronica, me, a camera, a tripod and lots of patience!
This first video is a short introduction to our series.
The second video covers one of my biggest makeup annoyances, concealing brown spots.
Veronica uses mostly Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. She researched many cosmetic lines before she decided which one to carry in her studio and found Youngblood to have the most integrity (as a side note, neither of us are compensated for mentioning Youngblood Cosmetics).
We hope you find this video series useful, relatable and realistic.
Veronica and I would love to have your suggestions for future topics.
Feel free to leave your ideas in the comments or you can email them to me at adrienne (at) therichlifeonabudget (dot) com.
Make it a rich day!
