Getting My Everyday Makeup Look Professionally Applied

Makeup: Elena Pylarinos MUA
Hey lovelies!

If you have been following my blog or my Instagram for the last year or so then you would have heard about the fact that my sister, Elena Pylarinos, is a professional freelance makeup artist - I tend to mention it quite a lot, I know!

This time around she was actually inspired by me and the way I do my everyday makeup and so came the opportunity for her to recreate it on me and feature it on her website and social media platforms. Naturally I was thrilled and I always am any time someone compliments my makeup and the way I've applied it but, to a certain extent, the outcome is always a little different when an actual makeup artist does it for you even if they use the same colours and/or products (unless you've seen those 'I went to the worst rated makeup artist in my area' videos on YouTube because you will be in for such a shock).

The look that you see right here is what you will find me wearing most days; there are no fake lashes or any funny business. I love a glam look but sometimes the looks that are quick and easy and that work to make me look glowy and presentable are the ones that I tend to favour most.

Eyeshadow is a God-send because of its power to change up a look with just one swipe of a brush. The Topshop Chameleon eyeshadow used on me here has got to be one of my top 5 favourite eyeshadows and I am so eternally grateful to my best friend who bought this for my birthday a little while back; she certainly made the right choice!

Looking at the final result of this look, the first thought that comes to mind is: I look like me. I often find that when you go to a makeup artist, you go in for one thing and come out with something completely different! In this case, being able to discuss my own techniques and the products that I liked, in addition to having the room to speak freely to ensure the look was tailored to suit me simply made this more of a success.

The key thing to remember is that, related or not, going to a makeup artist should not be another one of those nail salon situations where you feel too afraid to say that the talons they've given you are not what you asked for because trust me, I know the awkwardness of having to do anything like that.

The key perk that I found after having my everyday makeup look professionally applied is just how much more even and smooth my skin looks compared to when I do my own makeup and for that I am JEALOUS! I managed to learn a thing or two about how I could improve my own techniques though, such as: putting on a liquid primer will actually do my skin the world of good and being stubborn or lazy about having to include another step in my routine is downright silly, has anyone else had this woe?

In life, we never stop learning so having the chance to engage with opportunities that could teach you some new tricks or make your current processes a little more efficient is only good practice. What's more you will love being challenged and nothing is more challenging than someone else trying to edit your makeup routine, even if it is for the better!
