ISSADA FOR SAMANTHA JADE: AACTA AWARDS 2015

Samantha-JadeIssada recently did Australian pop star Samantha Jade’s makeup for the AACTA Awards. National Trainer and Head of the Issada Creative Team Rianna Schuh shares all the insider secrets to recreate the look at home.

 COMPLEXION:

“Due to harsh flashbulbs on the red carpet (where shine is exacerbated) we opted for a flawless, completely matte coverage, starting with Issada’s Canvas Primer, $75, then using Issada’s Mineral Velvet Cream Foundation, $69 and setting with Mineral Rice Setting Powder in Warm, $79, followed by a light dusting of Mineral Baked Foundation, $79. Contouring was a major focus to ensure bone structure was perfectly sculpted and stood out in heavy flash photography.”

CHEEKS:

“Bronzing and highlighting was a major focus of the look – I layered both cream and powder finish to achieve maximum impact. I started with a wet contour/highlight (Issada Luminiser Stick in Bronze, $69, and Issada Luminiser Stick in Luminised, $69) and set with powder equivalents (Issada Mineral Baked Eyeshadow in Sugar $45, and Mineral Baked Velvet in Earth $79).”

EYES:

“We decided on a classic eye with an ombre graduation from tawny-caramel colors (Mineral Baked 2Eyeshadow in 2Nice, $45 and Mineral Baked Eyeshadow in Rocky Road $45) to black, and finishing in an elongated smokey winged shape. I used lots of individual Issada Luxe Lashes (One By One, $22) lashes to keep the drama with a fluttery finish.

LIPS:

“Samantha was wearing an amazing Pallas Couture gown in a blush-nude so we went for a matching lip using Issada Mineral Lip Crayon in Skinny Dip, $48 with a slick of Issada Mineral Gloss in Nectar, $48, on top to catch the light.”

ISSADA STARS: AQUARIUS

THE AQUARIUS: 21 January – 19 February
THE GEMSTONE: Amethyst
THE LIFE: The Aquarian Gem is a great friend and listener. The water-bearer is renowned for being honest, compassionate and excitingly unconventional. As an air sign, she always balances the good with the bad and thrives on adventure. Never one to stay in the same place for long, Aquarius is always open to new opportunities and invigorating experiences.
THE LOOK: Aquarius Gems look great in anything that sparkles so opt for shimmering textures and mineral glitter particles. Oceanic blue and turquoise will complement Aquarian eyes, and lips and nail favourites include neon brights.
THE ISSADA GUIDE: Issada Mineral Lip Gloss in Tiara, Issada Protein Mascara, Issada Fashion Nail Colour in Summer, Issada Ultimate Eye Liner in Skyline


ISSADA STARS: CAPRICORN

THE CAPRICORN: 22 December – 20 January
THE GEMSTONE: Garnet
THE LIFE: Capricorn Gems are loyal, strong and earthy, with a practical intelligence and an energy that is both energizing and grounding. Capricorn women are focused; intense individuals who tend to take life seriously and constantly search for true depth and meaning. It follows then that they take their appearance seriously, also.
THE LOOK: Capricorn eyes look best in organic earthy shades to accent but not distract. Lips look amazing in bright tangerines and warm nudes, rather than vampy dark shades. In true Capricorn style, attention to detail is essential, so a matching mani is a must.
