Summer Wedding Makeup Tips
I was recently filming a fashion campaign with a Russian client and the lovely makeup artist Magda Skoczylas used a range of products which I’d never used before and I fell in love with how dewy and glossy my skin looked. Obviously your makeup on a friends wedding day is crucial. But in this heat you can suffer real nightmares if you dont have a quality base and it starts to wear off. Especially considering most weddings last hours from start right through to the reception and evening parties. I’m not a makeup artist but decided that I’d feature these fab products and a short breakdown on each just in case you are considering trying a new brand and want first hand knowledge of my experience with the fab products which can can fit neatly in your cosmetic bag or clutch.
INGLOT was established over 25 years ago by Wojtek Inglot, a young chemist working in the research and development department of a pharmaceutical company at that time. His principal objective was to produce high quality products at fair and reasonable prices, using the best ingredients and raw materials from the most reputable suppliers. All Inglot cosmetics are produced within the European Union and 95% of them are manufactured in their own state of the art production facilities. They work with talented make-up artists and colour consultants to bring the latest trends in colour, texture, and form to the market. They constantly develop new products and launched the world’s first ever Breathable Nail Enamel, that ensures better health care for nails combined with an excellent look. Their unique Freedom System allows customers to experiment with countless shades and colour combinations of different face products, providing an excellent opportunity to create customized colour palettes. They are now present in about 500 retail locations worldwide.
AMC Lip Paint
Ok so this is one of the key products used on me and I’m in love. It’s a Cream-gel consistency lip product, packaged in a small jar. It provides good coverage, while biomimetic peptide stimulates collagen synthesis giving a long lasting ultra-shiny effect. If you love glossy lips but hate colours that fade this is the lip paint for the summer. The colour is strong yet subtle and really lasts well.
UNDER MAKEUP BASE SPF 20
INGLOT are excited to announce the launch of the new, hypoallergenic Under Makeup Base with SPF 20 sunscreen. Thanks to the valuable black pearl extract, the base perfectly moisturizes and smoothes the skin. SPF 20 provides medium protection and makes the product a summer must-have, letting your makeup remain fresh and vibrant while protecting the skin from the negative impact of the sun. INGLOT Under Makeup Base SPF20 can be used with any INGLOT foundation, powder or concealer as well as individually. When using individually, please re-apply the product regularly for extra protection. As a beauty expert I always advise people to use a daily SPF to protect their skin so this is really useful as its also a base whether.
MATTIFYING UNDER MAKEUP BASE
INGLOT introduce revolutionary Mattifying Under Makeup Base, a unique unscented hypoallergenic primer for your makeup. Its smooth, gel consistency softens and thoroughly mattifies your skin preparing it for long-lasting, flawless makeup. Moreover, the product’s special formula gives the effect of evening out minor wrinkles, giving the soft and velvety feel to your skin. It absorbs the excess of sebum without drying out the skin for those who want to say goodbye to excess shine. INGLOT Mattifying Under Makeup Base can be used with any INGLOT foundation, powder or concealer, as well as individually. It does not clog pores and is suitable for every skin type and for men. Filming in HD can really show up every imperfection and I can honestly say my skin looked amazing and that was in 90 degree heat and under studio lighting! Another fab product.
FREEDOM SYSTEM LIPSTICK MATTE
This is a high quality matte lipstick available in convenient packaging. Macadamia nut oil and avocado butter protect the lips, whilst the non-sticky, long lasting formula ensures even application. Provides an opaque, perfectly matte finish. Freedom System Matte Lipsticks are available in 20 highly pigmented shades that can be worn individually or mixed and blended to create your own unique hues. If you a bit more adventurous with fashion and beauty trends this is fab because you get 10 colours to mix and match in a palette.
FREEDOM SYSTEM HD SCULPTING POWDER
Everyones talking about Kim Kardashians amazing cheek definition and alot is down this whole new makeup craze known as contouring.Sculpting is all about accentuating and defining the whole face. This is exactly what INGLOT’s new Freedom System HD Sculpting Powders will let you achieve. In one convenient palette you have everything needed to contour and sculpt your face, enhancing only the best features and diverting attention from any imperfections. With high pigment colour concentration and translucent coverage the illusion of a more structured face can be achieved without the excess product. Pro-tip: Apply the HD Sculpting Powder with an angled brush such as INGLOT’s 3P brush and blend well. Use the lighter colours in the collection to highlight, add volume, and draw areas forward, the darker colours, on the contrary, are used to shade and push them back, ultimately creating a lifting and slimming effect on the face.
INGLOT HD Illuminizing Pressed Powder
INGLOT is set to launch another HD product – HD Pressed Powder. Available in 5 colours, corresponding to those within the HD Illuminizing Loose Powder Collection, this pressed powder is a must-have in your purse for instant touch-ups. The skin loving ingredients include premium silicone powder and diamond dust, perfect to hide skin’s little imperfections and leave you looking refreshed and rejuvenated. Outstanding film-forming agents will provide a smooth and long-lasting finish. Ideal for everyday use, this product may also be used for filming in high definition and will ensure the face looks flawless even on a big screen, so if your going to be caught on the wedding film this is a lovely little touchup tool. INGLOT HD Pressed Powder can be used on bare skin, over foundation and all over the eye area preventing colour grabbing to skin, ensuring easy and perfect blending of the eye shadow.

A daily essential to lift away dark shadows under the eyes and highlight the skin. Satin pearl pigments diffuse light, softening skin texture, while a built in primer ensures bonding to the skin surface and a long lasting finish.
So whats there Freedom system all about?
The Freedom System
Freedom System is pretty cool, its a unique method of arranging eye shadows, blushes, pressed powders, lipsticks, concealers and brow products in special magnetic cases, which can be combined freely. The Freedom System collection is available in a variety of sizes from a selection of one product up to a palette of 40 eye shadows or lipsticks. Palettes are designed for both the consumer and professional makeup artist alike. Owing to the magnetic locks, cases can be combined freely creating “blocks” of cosmetics closed with one lid. This solution is extremely useful while working on makeup as it reduces the space occupied by a huge collection of products to a minimum and also secures it perfectly. Moreover, eye shadows, blushes, and powders are placed on a magnetic tape which makes it easier to exchange them. Each of the cases can also be closed individually with a separate lid.
