Beauty expert, JOYCE YOUNG, on looking camera-ready
THE CUTTING-EDGE WORLD OF MAKEUP artistry waits for no man. You have to adapt with the latest tech and trends to stay ahead of the game, and that requires continuous education. A jill-of-all-trades in the local beauty scene, JOYCE YOUNG has trained at Australian College of Hair Design and Beauty and has been practicing her craft in the wedding makeup business since 2012. Her background in graphic design and photography has equipped her with a keen eye for detail, especially where HD bridal makeup is concerned. Additionally, Joyce’s lineup of services has now expanded to eyebrow microblading after studying at Phi Brows.
We talk about going high-def, celeb pegs, and tips to live by for the big day:
THE HD DIFFERENCE
What makes High Definition Makeup so popular in the beauty industry is how the makeup itself has been formulated to look great on camera. According to Joyce, “They contain light-reflecting pigments that go on smooth, even, and sheer without the added thick layers of traditional makeup.” That’s how some celebs sport the poreless look while appearing to have hardly any makeup on. She adds, “The technique involves small brush strokes and fine sponge application to get makeup to blend as seamlessly as possible!”
By Joyce’s definition, the ultimate bridal look is one of classic elegance with a modern take. It starts with highlighting fresh skin and doing clean, precise makeup. She loves working on the eyes, so on-point brows are a must. Her eyeshadow shades of choice feature warm neutrals, followed by full mink lashes that beckon. Hair is styled in either swept-up loose curls or sleek and straight.
Asked about celebrity bridal inspirations, she notes that Heart Evangelista created a timeless look for her big day. Anne Curtis made her own bridal makeup effortless and natural. For the sweet and youthful look, Kween Liza Soberano reigns supreme, while Solenn Heussaff projects the sassiness of a free-spirited bride.
But the surprising thing is that brides don’t insist on copying their pegs too closely. They trust Joyce’s bespoke beauty recommendations which she achieves by creating a face chart based on their facial structures. This technique emphasizes each bride’s best assets and unique features.
TIME FOR TIPS
To prep skin for the full day ahead, Joyce recommends getting lots of sleep and starting with a good skin care regimen. She advocates the use of long-wear makeup along with finishing powder and setting spray to keep the bridal beauty in place all day. The bridal minaudiere must contain lash glue, blotters, a drinking straw, and tinted lip balm. The latter is great for a mess-free blush of color for all those kissing moments.
