Make-up Mistakes & How To Rectify Them

1) Using an incorrect foundation shade

When your face doesn’t match your neck.

Solutions: Have your colour matching professionally done in store, but always check in daylight not under store lights. Don’t use the back of your hand to check colour, use your jaw line. Alternatively follow Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar’s Top Application Tips & Tricks Video. I find a Foundation Blending Brush works well to ensure colour blends onto neck.

Tip: You’ll find Dr. Hauschka NEW Foundations much easier to colour match. If you need more warm tones in summer just add a little Translucent Bronzing Tint to your Foundation.

Translucent tip: You can also mix Foundation with your Dr. Hauschka Moisturiser for a translucent look or apply with a moist sponge.

2) Dark lipliner with lighter lipstick

Solution: Ensure your lipliner matches your lipstick. Karim Sattar, Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist, recommends applying lip liner all over the lips simply because lipstick comes off and liner stays put and outlined lips are not what you’re looking for.

3) Blush that looks like racing stripes or no blush at all

Solution: Smile and apply blush lightly to the ‘apples’ of your cheeks. Always use a big Powder/Blusher Brush which is better at distributing colour, shake off excess, then apply. Your aim is to get subtle colour in your cheeks, think of a child’s cheeks. We often see a flat make-up, with no blusher or bronzer. It’s important for a youthful make-up to add the colour back in after applying Foundation and Powder.

4) Applying too much powder

Powder is important to set your Foundation for a longer lasting make-up, however, it looks caked if too much is used.

Solution: Use a large Powder Brush, tap off excess, then apply downwards to smooth down fine hairs. Finish with a spritz of Dr. Hauschka Toner which takes away a powdery look and also helps to set your make-up.

5) Applying Make-up too soon after Moisturiser

Or applying make-up to skin that hasn’t been cleansed, toned and moisturised.

Solution: Wait while your day care product absorbs into the skin. I do my morning regime of Cleansing Cream, Toner and Moisturiser then have breakfast and get dressed so my skin care has plenty of time to absorb. The aim is to apply your make-up evenly on clean, nourished and protected skin.

6) Clumpy Eyelashes

Never pump your mascara which forces air into the tube and dries out the formula.

Solution: Dr. Hauschka Mascara and Volume Mascara are made with nourishing ingredients such as Candelilla Wax, precious Damask Rose Blossom Wax and Beeswax. Remember all mascaras, natural and organic or otherwise should be replaced every 3 months. Pop a reminder in your phone when you purchase a new mascara for 3 months time.

Tip: Karim Sattar our International Make-up Artist recommends using a softer colour than black on bottom lashes, because you don’t want to enhance anything downward for a youthful make-up. Try Pearl Anthracite or Aubergine Volume Mascara, or Brown Mascara.

7) Eyeliner lines

Keep it softer during the day, apply eyeliner pencil to the outer 1/3rd and blend inwards, then set with eye shadow and an angled brush. Anthracite is a soft black which is flattering for a day time make-up.

7 Tips To Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

Key Visual Dear Eyes_Press

1) Concealer
Dark circles can make your eyes appear smaller. Choose your Dr. Hauschka Concealer shade slightly lighter than your skin to brighten and correct any blue tones.

Tip: Apply Concealer to the inner eye only, wait a moment for it to absorb then blend, don’t apply to outer area where it’s likely to sit in any fine lines which will enhance them.

2) Liquid Eyeliner
Apply Dr. Hauschka Liquid Liner Black close as possible to your upper lash line, with a tiny flick at the end. This makes your lashes look thicker.

3) Mascara
Eyelash curlers are a must then Dr. Hauschka Volumising Mascara Black on top lashes, apply in a zig zag fashion to build volume. Try a softer colour on lower lashes such as Aubergine or Anthracite (soft black).

4) Eyeliner Pencil
Eyeliner Pencil on the water line can make your eyes look much smaller. Colour the waterline with a white pencil to instantly open and brighten eyes.

Apply Eyeliner Pencil to the outer 1/3rd and blend inwards to achieve a wide eyed look.

5) Define the Crease
Use matte eye shadow, our Eye Shadow Palette is perfect, and ensure you apply from the outer corners towards the inner, apply with a brush and blend.

6) Highlight
Dab light colour under brows, such as Eye Shadow Solo 09, centre of lids and particularly to the inner corner where there is a natural valley and shadow beside the nose, this helps to make eyes look wide awake.

7) Brows
Brows really frame your eye, get them professionally shaped and tinted. Eye Shadow Palette our multi tasking product works well for brows, apply colour with an angled brush. For additional brow grooming use a smidgen of Eye Balm to hold hairs close to the skin.

10 Radiant Skin Tips and 10 Make-up Tips for the Bride

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 3.52.46 pm

1. Hydration for a plump, uplifted skin, drink water, coconut water, green tea, herbals teas, eat watermelon. Warm water and lemon juice first thing every morning helps to keep skin clear.

2. Schedule a monthly Facial Treatment with a Dr. Hauschka trained Esthetician.

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 12.22.17 pm

3. Remember Body Care, Hand and Nail Care and Foot Care too, especially if you’re wearing strappy shoes with heels on show. Moisturising is key and once you use Dr. Hauschka Body Moisturisers it’s hard to accept anything of lesser quality. Natural and organic ingredients are just as important for your body. We love Quince Body Moisturiser for its cooling, soothing and deeply hydrating qualities, Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Moisturising for its refreshing and energising aroma and After Sun is another of our summer time favourites. For a mature bride then choose Regenerating Body Cream for its firming and toning as well as deeply nourishing abilities.

If your feet are dry, particularly check your heels, use Hydrating Foot Cream, however if you have feet with a tendency to perspire then use Deodorising Foot Cream. Hand Cream and Neem Nail Oil Pen are a must.

4. Kissable lips with regular use of Lip Care Stick or Lip Balm.

5. Clean your make-up brushes weekly to avoid acne causing bacteria and to ensure true colours. Always clean your brushes in an ecological gentle hand wash or body wash and dry flat not upstanding. As for pimples always have Coverstick on hand for concealing and treating, incredible product!

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 2.17.40 pm

6. Get your beauty sleep.

7. Regular exercise, 30 minutes daily in the fresh air will do. Movement supports your body’s lymph system.

8. Nutrition, eat fresh, organic wherever possible. Read 15 Top Foods for Healthy Skin

9. It’s really important to reduce stress. If you’re not already then meditate daily, do yoga, tai chi, read a great book, spend time with great friends, whatever it takes, as stress shows on your face.

10. We want your skin looking radiant for your big day. Ideally you need to be taking extra special care of your skin 1 year out, however if you don’t have that amount of time adopt these skin care rituals as soon as possible. A healthy, balanced, vibrant skin comes from using the highest quality natural and organic ingredients, not synthetic chemicals.

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 4.19.40 pm

Recommendations:

1) Dr. Hauschka every morning ritual: Cleanse, Tone or use Intensive Treatment & Moisturise
2) Dr. Hauschka every evening ritual: Cleanse, Tone or use 1 ampoule of Conditioner, or Intensive Treatment
3) Once a week, maybe a Sunday night, Cleanse, Clarifying Steam Bath, Clarifying Clay Mask and follow with Revitalising Mask which benefits all skin conditions
4) Another night of the week Cleanse early in the evening, apply Revitalising Mask and include eye contour area, leave to absorb for as long as possible and remove with a warm, moist cloth prior to bedtime

Tip: We recommend Soothing Intensive Treatment morning and evening instead of Toner one month out from wedding for hypersensitive skin or a skin suffering from any stress condition.

10 Wedding Make-up Tips

1. Do your brow, upper lip and any other facial waxing at least 3 days before the wedding
2. Avoid products that use SPF, they tend to give very pale look in photographs
3. Use a matte moisturiser on the day, Melissa Day Cream has a very matte finish and helps to control shine or Rose Day Cream Light
4. For a long lasting make-up go for our International Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar’s technique of:
a) Translucent Make-up 00 as a primer
b) Concealer, inner eye only, not outer eye
c) Translucent Powder Loose, applied with Powder Brush and tapped to remove excess before applying
d) Translucent Make-up in your shade, always apply with a foundation blender brush for that ‘air-brushed’ look
e) Translucent Powder again, applied with Powder Brush and tapped before applying. Think less is more, you don’t want a caked look.
5. Blusher and Bronzer is a must.
6. Take it easy on the shimmer. Highlight on cheek bones and/or brow bone is flattering but too much shimmer doesn’t photograph well
7. Set your lipstick with Karim’s technique:
a) Apply Lipliner over the entire lip area, don’t do outlines
b) Apply Lipstick
c) ‘Kiss’ a tissue to remove excess
d) Apply Translucent Powder Loose with the powder puff
e) Apply Lipstick again
f) Apply a dap of Rose or Cherry Gloss mid bottom lip
8. Consider false lashes rather than mascara for the big day. Individual lashes are more natural looking, but always trial before the wedding day
9. Have a Translucent Powder Compact with you for touch-ups. Oily shine doesn’t photograph well, you need to keep skin matte
10. Keep in mind if you’re wearing white you will need enough colour happening in your make-up to compensate for the whiteness of your dress. Always do a trial run of your make-up wearing white, tee shirt will do, prior to the day.

Radiance Make-up by Karim

Screen Shot 2014-09-03 at 9.51.27 am

Shine with Radiance

The festive season beckons once again. During this special time of year, a woman likes to shine. And a radiant, shimmering make-up puts her in the spotlight for a memorable appearance. It underscores her inner radiance, which glows even brighter than the festive lights, and turns a holiday celebration into a five-star occasion.

This year, the colours of the season are soft, natural and warm. They glimmer and shine, revealing the inner spark that is within every woman – in keeping with the festive spirit. Internationally renowned Dr. Hauschka Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar, has created a vivacious make-up look specifically for such special occasions, dominated by shades of gold, sand and brown accentuated with a delicate rosé. It showcases an even complexion and extremely dramatic, shining eyes. Fresh, gently shimmering lips add a luminous note. He also combines delicate rosé with a hint of ivory for a festive, radiant glow on the cheeks.

Karim Sattar guides you through the steps to create the perfect look for special occasions.

Start with an even complexion

“Ideally, you should start with foundation. Use a foundation brush or a make-up sponge to apply a small amount of Dr. Hauschka Translucent Make-up 00 as a ‘primer’This shade suits almost every skin tone, evens out the complexion, and provides the perfect base for the second nuance of colour that is actually part of the look.

Select the Translucent-Make-up shade that is best for your colouring – Pale Sand (01), Beige Rosé (02), Suntan (03) or Mocca (04). This will enliven your face with a touch of freshness. Follow with Translucent Face Powder Loose to set the make-up, placing a small amount on the powder puff and using it to mattify the face as desired.”

Dramatic eyes

“First use Kajal Eyeliner 04 Soft Brown to highlight the lower lashline and the upper eyelid. Apply the Kajal Eyeliner along the crease of the upper lid, covering about one-third from the outside working inward, as well as along the lower lashline. In addition, use Kajal Eyeliner to fill in the space between the lashline and the crease of the lid and gently smudge it on the upper eyelid up to the crease and on the lower eyelid to the inner corner of the eye.

Next, apply Eyeshadow Solo 04 Taupe to the upper eyelid in the outer corner of the eye and to the lower eyelid, gently smoothing in the eyeshadow.

For sparkling highlights, apply Eyeshadow Solo 01 Golden Sand to the inner part of the upper eyelid and under the eyebrow.

Finally, apply Eyeshadow Solo 02 Golden Earth in the centre of the eyelid to gently blend the colours. For best results, use a blender brush to finish the look.

To strongly accentuate the lashline, use Kajal Eyeliner 04 Soft Brown to draw a line along the edges of the upper and lower eyelids and carefully blend it in. Then apply the white eyeliner from Kajal Eyeliner Duo 01 White/Anthracite to the inner lower eyelid to make the eyes look larger and more alert.

If you want to give the eyes an even more dramatic touch, apply Eyeliner Liquid Brown along the upper lashline. Start at the middle of the upper lashline, first dabbing inward towards the corner of the eye, then turn the brush and work from the middle towards the outside.

Tip: Two layers of Volume Mascara 01 Black add the final polish to this five-star look.

This season, the focus is on the eyebrows

Use a eyebrow brush for shaping, then choose a shade from Dr. Hauschka Eyeshadow Palette 01 that matches your hair colour and apply it to the eyebrows. Colour 02 Mushroom is suitable for lighter hair; for darker hair, I recommend colour 03 Taupe. After applying, use Dr. Hauschka Eye Contour Day Balm to set the colour. This not only showcases the eyebrows, but also hydrates a part of your skin that tends to be dry.

Delicate cheeks that sparkle and shimmer

Apply Rouge Powder 03 Blushing Rosé to the upper cheekbones for a fresh, vibrant look. Achieve shimmering highlights by moistening Eyeshadow Solo 09 Ivory slightly and dabbing it onto the upper cheekbone using a make-up sponge. This gives you a fresh, dewy appearance which will turn heads.

The finishing touch – shining, rosy lips

Outline your lips with Lipliner 03 Soft Rosé. Next, use Lipstick 01 Soft Coral to entirely fill in both lips. For a festive shine, finish the look by applying Lip Gloss 01 Rose to the lips.

Now your radiant, shimmering make-up is complete – guaranteed to put you in the spotlight and make the evening an unforgettable occasion!”

Eyes

Apply Eyeshadow 01 Golden Sand to your entire upper eyelid, gently blending it towards your eyebrows. Next, apply Eyeshadow 02 Golden Earth to just your eyelid crease to give your eyes some extra depth. Volume Mascara Black makes your eyes look wider for added sparkle. Only apply it to your upper lashes.

Complexion

Prime your face with Translucent Make-up and apply Concealer to your lower and upper eye areas to hide any blemishes. Next, use a powder brush to evenly apply a mixture of Bronzing Powder and Translucent Face Powder compact , working downwards from your forehead.

Eyes

Apply Eyeshadow 09 Ivory to your entire upper eyelid, gently blending it towards your eyebrows. Next, apply Eyeshadow 04 Taupe to your eyelid crease, taking the colour to the upper edge of your eyelid at the corner of your eye. Now apply Black Liquid Eyeliner to your upper lashes, running it in a straight line to the corners of your eyes. Apply two coats of Volume Mascara Black , not forgetting your lower lashes in the evening.

Cheeks

Apply Rouge Powder 03 Rosé to your cheek bones and accentuate your lower cheek area with Bronzing Powder.

Lips

Apply a small amount of Lipstick 07 Transparent Rosé before pressing your lips together and filling in any remaining areas. Dab a little Lip Gloss 01 Rose onto the middle of your lips.

Top 10 Women’s Colors

Whether it was a particular decade or a trip to a special place, designers are fascinated with the beauty of the past and the spirit of the present—recreating it with colour, fabric and style this fall season. Design and colour were inspired by everything from books, artisan crafts, photography and retro architecture, to exotic landscapes and the children of rock legends. The diverse colour palette takes us on an adventure spanning 100 years—a season roused by various vantage points from past and present.

“This is a season of untypical colours—more reflective of the imagination and ingenuity, which makes for an artful collection of colours and combinations not bound by the usual hues for fall,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute®. “There is a feminine mystique that is reflected throughout the palette, inspired by the increasing need for women everywhere to create an individual imprint.”

Sangria, an exotic red that evokes a sense of glamorous adventures and faraway destinations is enhanced by Aurora Red, a more sophisticated shade that adds verve and spark.
The grown-up reds are followed by two extremes of the purple family that intrigue the eye and inspire the imagination. Mauve Mist, a romantic and elegant purple shade, reminds us of the deco era and stimulates a sense of femininity and empowerment, while Radiant Orchid, a captivating and adaptable shade, enchants the complete spectrum. Pair either with Cypress, a majestic and powerful green; indicative of its name, this shade has a towering presence and serves as a stunning perennial.

With its slightly green undertone, Bright Cobalt offers a subtle twist on the traditional cobalt blue, which unifies this season’s blues. Likewise, Royal Blue, which is both evocative and dignified, provides more complexity and excitement than the average navy, while still remaining versatile. Pair Bright Cobalt with Sangria and Cypress, or Royal Blue with Mauve Mist and Aluminium, a futuristic stainless steel shade that serves as a complex neutral.
Similar to Sangria, Cognac’s name alone leads to glamorous illusions. This classy and cultured brown takes a typical autumnal colour to a sumptuous realm, making the shade unexpectedly ideal for evening wear. Adding a ray of sunlight and warmth, optimistic Misted Yellow alludes to the promise of spring to come. Both Cognac and Misted Yellow will also be prevalent in prints—a surprisingly popular trend this autumn season.

Mascara – Coal Dust & Elderberry Juice

Screen Shot 2013-11-22 at 4.32.19 PM

Whether to drive away evil spirits or to enhance and attract, the uses of mascara over its 6,000 year history have been as diverse as its ingredients.

Colours to ward off evil spirits

Egyptian records from around 4,000 BC describe a substance called kohl, which women, children and men used to darken their lashes, eyes and eyebrows to protect them against evil spirits.  Back then, the colour was produced by pulverised minerals such as antimony, galena, manganese oxide, black iron oxide and magnetite.  Even soot was among the substances that were incorporated into greases to produce the black substance. However, kohl truly did have a protective effect. The evil spirits that it warded off were what we today know as bacteria.  The mineral components of kohl had an antibacterial effect and therefore provided protection against bacterial eye diseases, which were extremely common in Egypt due to the hot, dry climate.

As long and dark as possible

While black painted eyes were a part of everyday life in the Near East, in Western culture, any colour on the face was long regarded as heathen and scorned. This situation only changed at the end of the 19th century when the ladies of high society developed a taste for the thickest, longest and darkest eyelashes possible. To achieve this effect they coloured their eyelashes with a mixture made from coal dust and elderberry juice.

Irresistible at rendezvous

A somewhat more elegant version of mascara was developed in the USA in 1913 by the brother of a young girl named Mabel who wanted to look irresistible for a rendezvous with her sweetheart Chet. Her brother, T.L. William was a chemist and created a black substance for his big sister to apply to her eyelashes by mixing together coal dust and vaseline. The plan worked, or at least Chet and Mabel were married a year later. In 1915, T.L. William established the company Mabelline with his product and offered his mascara in tubes. He also sold brushes onto which women wanting to apply the mascara could squeeze out the black substance as though onto a toothbrush. Another of William’s developments was the first compact mascara in block format. As you had to moisten the ink before being able to apply it with a brush, this became known colloquially as spit mascara.

Packaging is key, but not everything

Now all that remained was the step in which mascara took on its current form. This was taken in the mid 1950’s by Helena Rubinstein (1870 – 1965) from Krakow. She had the idea of filling small bottles with a liquefied version of mascara. These bottles were sealed with lids and had an integrated brush. Today, the exterior shape has barely changed, we still buy mascara in bottles with a brush. The differences are found in the the contents, and are well worth a much closer look. The Dr. Hauschka mascara which was launched onto the market in 1999 is free from synthetic chemicals, petro-chemicals, fragrances and preservatives (parabens). Medicinal plant extracts from eyebright, black tea and neem leaves complement the base ingredient of natural wax. The sensitive eye area loves it.

Screen Shot 2013-11-19 at 12.53.57 PM

How often should you replace your mascara, natural or otherwise?

Once every 3 months.  I give myself a calendar reminder for 3 months from purchase.
