Makeup Melbourne’s leading makeup artist – Carrie Dulani was recently trained in Chicago by Kim Kardashian’s no 1 makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic of 10 years. This workshop reignited Carrie’s passion for beautiful, classy makeup in a world full of heavy coverage, lashes and tasteless makeup tutorials on Instagram. It is easy to get caught up in the “trends” posted on Instagram by beauty influencers however, in person the looks are too heavy, unrealistic and masculine. Many of the trends online are not able to be used in the real world as the looks are too harsh and will age you by 10 years and not to mention, probably make you look like a man! Have you ever questioned why there are so many male beauty bloggers and instagrammers who apparently just pop on makeup and all of a sudden they look like a beautiful young female? This “trend” is not because of their beautiful makeup application or skill, it is because the makeup trends of today are too harsh and make women look more masculine. Men aren’t looking more like women, women are looking more like men with makeup! We need to put the softness and beauty back into makeup to create youthful tasteful makeup looks that are completely flawless. If you have ever tried to re-create the popular Instagram looks yourself at home, you were probably really disappointed with the outcome but rest assure it is not your lack of makeup application skills, it is the application that is not realistic to be replicated in real life. All the fancy contouring techniques and brushes etc are not used by the best celebrity artists in the world, they are used by Instagram influencers because it is new and entertaining and they obtain “likes” for the techniques and more importantly, are sponsored by the products your going to buy to recreate the look at home. Its commerciality! You will not ever see any successful makeup artist doing such things as it only takes one bad picture for careers to be ruined in this industry. At Makeup Melbourne we want your pictures to come out amazing but we also want you to look even better in real life, with tasteful makeup that makes you look completely flawless.
Kim’s VMA look was completely flawless and natural and exactly how makeup should be. Mario trained us on how to create this look at his masterclass and it has as many steps as the heavy makeup looks however it takes real skill and old school artistry, to make the look beautiful and natural in real life!!
