The right approach: star makeup artist on wedding preparations
When choosing a wedding makeup stylist, one thing is clear: you should only trust the best and most reputable. Irina Mitroshkina, a celebrity makeup artist and co-founder of the Prive7 beauty network, shared her scheme of working with brides with us.
MODERN WEDDING AESTHETICS AND THE BRIDE OF THE XXI CENTURY – WHAT ARE THEY?
For me, the aesthetics of a wedding is, first of all, a clearly coherent concept. Harmony in all aspects, from makeup to the design of the venue. The bride of our time is undoubtedly confident in herself, style is important for her, not momentary trends. She knows her strengths and emphasizes them. And of course, she marries only for love for an equal.
TELL US ABOUT THE IMMEDIATE WORK BEFORE THE WEDDING: HOW DOES YOU CHOOSE THE LOOK AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CREATE THE FINAL OPTION?
My usual practice is to rehearse makeup and styling for about a month and check out on the day of the wedding. Before deciding on the style, I scrupulously find out all sorts of details of the ceremony: where it will take place, in what spirit it is sustained and what dress and accessories the bride will wear. As I said, in my wedding world, harmony is primary. Directly on day? X the creation of the image “from and to” takes a maximum of two hours.
LET’S TALK ABOUT THE MISTAKES THAT BRIDES MAKE IN CHOOSING THEIR WEDDING LOOK…
The main miscalculation of brides is to try to be who they are not. Getting ready for a wedding often involves a desire to do whatever is possible. False eyelashes, hair, self-tanning, incredible bouffant, and other beauty delights suddenly come into play. All you need to do is calm down and remember the everyday images in which you feel most comfortable and confident. It is critically important not to experiment with your appearance and not to undergo any new procedures, since the result may be unpredictable and the mood can be ruined.
SHARE YOUR LIFE HUCKS TO KEEP YOUR MIKE AND STYLING FRESH?
For makeup, choose only waterproof products, and so that the styling does not lose its dignified look, use as much texturizing spray as possible. For example, this can be found in the Oribe brand. In such cases, he has never let me down.
ARE THERE ANY IMPORTANT POINTS IN PRE-WEDDING CARE THAT ARE FREQUENTLY NOT FULFILLED BY BRIDES OUT OF ORDINARY UNKNOWLEDGE?
Make sure to apply an alginate mask before applying foundation. She masterly removes morning puffiness and erases signs of lack of sleep. Another important point: the face should not be overloaded with creams, otherwise the foundation will not merge with the skin and the makeup will look untidy.
WHAT PROCEDURES DO YOU especially RECOMMEND TO BRIDES AND WHY?
If we are talking about getting rid of a couple of kilograms and restoring skin tone, then I advise you to sign up for sculptural body plastics, T-Shock wrap and muscle relaxation facial massage in our Prive7 Frunzenzkaya salon.
For perfectionists, I offer a course of procedures using the Vellashape apparatus. It will get rid of unnecessary volume and flabbiness in the most problematic areas and finally model a beautiful silhouette.
In addition, be sure to experience the magic of Laennec injections. This drug, by the way, is included in the national health program in Japan. His ability to quickly improve his condition both outside and inside can only be envied. For those worn out by the pre-wedding stress, this definitely will not hurt. W
