Bridal Beauty Drama Fixes
With expert tips from industry pros, beauty editor Candice Gregor devises the ultimate beauty S.O.S. list for brides-to-be.


With expert tips from industry pros, beauty editor Candice Gregor devises the ultimate beauty S.O.S. list for brides-to-be.

1. I want truly glowing skin

Just a few drops of Kosmea Skin Clinic Organic Rose Hip Oil applied to skin day and night is all you need to smooth your complexion, reduce the signs of ageing and promote healthy, balanced skin, as it's rich in fatty acids and vitamin A. A great trick is to have your make-up artist mix a little of the rose hip oil with your foundation before applying to the face. It's a technique celebrity make-up artists use to give skin an incredibly healthy luminosity. Call 1300 130 320. Mineral make-up is also a fabulous choice for brides who want a flawless finish. It injects skin with vitamins for nourishment and won't clog pores. Look for brands like Inika, Proof, Jane Iredale, Face of Australia and L'Oreal.

2. My make-up is blotchy and flaky

Using a pre-foundation skin primer provides a smooth base for foundation to adhere to. Primers increase foundation's staying power and result in a flawless finish. Apply directly to skin or after moisturiser. Try: Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot or Laura Mercier Foundation Primer.

3. How do I apply like a pro?

Professional make-up brushes make application so much easier. Brushes can be purchased separately or as part of a set, and a bronzing or blusher brush is a particularly great investment. It's important to know that the direction you brush powder onto skin makes a difference in your overall look. Make sure you sweep powder in downwards motions, to avoid highlighting tiny facial hairs. Try Aveda's make-up brushes.

4. My blush makes me look clownish

Blush is intended to give a natural, healthy glow to your face and enhance cheekbones. To contour, apply blush lightly in a circular motion underneath cheekbones and blend well. Apply blush after your foundation and powder but before you do your eyes. This helps the result look more natural, as the amount of blush applied should be balanced with your skin, not eyes. Cream blush will add a dewy sheen to your skin and powder, like M.A.C's Pinch 'O Peach, will add more definition to your cheekbones.

5. I don't want a greasy face

Applying powder over foundation helps to prevent shine and sets your foundation. If you have oily skin, chances are you will require touch-ups with a pressed powder during the day, so it is best to be prepared and carry a compact with you. Apply with a powder brush or puff. Blotting paper is also a good way to keep oily skin at bay. Jane Iredale's facial blotting papers made from 100% flax seed gently absorbs excess oil and leaves a fine powder over the skin. Visit

6. I want long luscious hair

Extensions made from 100% human hair are a great way for brides to ‘grow' their hair and add a touch of high glam, in an instant. Award-winning Sydney hairdresser Pierre Haddad practises the copper bell technique of hair extensions, where a length of hair is attached to your own hair and fastened in place with a small bell made from copper. The results are virtually seamless! Pierre recommends extensions are fitted at least 10 days before your wedding. Call (02) 9233 1999.

7. I don't like wearing loads of foundation

It is certainly advisable to wear foundation, as it provides flawless results for wedding photographs. If you prefer a lighter foundation, try a liquid with a light dusting of powder, or a wet-to-dry foundation. Try: M.A.C Mineralize SatinFinish or Napoleon Perdis China Doll Foundation.

8. My lipstick is dry, flaky and ‘bleeds'

Make sure lips are well exfoliated before applying any lipstick or gloss. Try Sara Happ's The Lip Scrub in Brown Sugar. Follow with a moist, creamy lipstick, like Rimmel's Moisture Rich, or opt for lipgloss if you dislike the feel of lipstick. A lip primer applied under lipstick may also help to combat flakiness. Try: L'Oreal Shine Delice, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss or M.A.C LipGlass. A good quality lip pencil applied under lip colour can make lipstick last longer and combat colour bleeding. Outline the lip line and then fill in the entire lip with pencil before applying lip colour. To make lip pencil last longer, apply foundation to lips first. Try Estee Lauder Lip Pencil, M.A.C Lip Pencil.

9. My skin has broken out

Treat skin seriously with products from the fabulous Rationale range, like Skin Refining Serum. With Alpha and Beta Hydroxy acids, the serum works to unclog pores and reduce breakouts. To find out more and start a treatment plan, visit If all else fails, concealer is a God-send in covering up under eye circles, blemishes and evening out skin tone. Applying concealer over your foundation (as opposed to under it) saves you work and product, as the foundation will do most of the concealing for you. Apply with a brush or cotton tip and blend well.

10. I want my foundation to go the distance

A good-quality foundation is crucial to perfect wedding day make-up. It needs to be long-lasting, provide good coverage and match your skin tone perfectly. Stick foundations provide the most coverage and have long-wearing power. Apply with a cellulose wedge-shaped sponge. Try Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick or M.A.C Studio Stick. A make-up setting spray like Model Co's Beauty Fix Airbrush Face will also ensure make-up stays put.

11. I want neat, manicured nails

Apart from your smile, wedding guests will be doting over your amazing rock, with all eyes consequently on your hands – so make sure they're ready for the attention! For a classic polished look, opt for a French manicure. If you must wear a coloured polish, go for neutral shades or those with a touch of sparkle. A good moisturiser will keep hands looking youthful and skin supple. Try Bloom's Green Tea and Bergamot scented hand cream – shea butter is its magic skin-moisturising ingredient!

12. I want to really play up my eyes

False lashes work a treat to add oomph to eyes. Use individual ones (three or four lashes make a cluster), as opposed to a full set. Attach clusters to the outer corners of eyes for maximum impact. Hold lashes with tweezers, apply a small glob of glue and press against your natural lashes, holding for 30 seconds until dry. Try: MAC lashes and Ardell Lash Grip glue. If you don't want to fake it, invest in some Jan Marini Age Intervention lash treatment which is designed to stimulate eye lash growth! Apply to the top lash line once a day and watch your lashes blossom... in front of your very eyes. See Or make eyes pop by wearing a vividly coloured eye shadow like i.d. bareMinerals Azure Glimmer.

13. I want to look picture perfect in my photos

After your trial with your make-up artist, take a photograph of your face. It's recommended you use a flash, too, as some foundations react with the camera flash (beware of products with sunscreen as they often carry light-reflective particles that lead to that ghostly photo face).

14. I have under-eye circles

Of course it's important to be well-rested in the lead up to the wedding, but we all know that this is easier said than done. Products like Gatineau's Skin Lightening Concentrate work to gently bleach the delicate eye skin and, used morning and night for prolonged periods of time, will see bags and dark circles dramatically reduced. A topical vitamin C serum like emerginC is another way to feed the area with nutrients and restore a healthy glow.

15. Eeek, panda eyes!

Waterproof mascara is essential to stand up to wedding day tears and prevent dreaded panda eyes! Apply one coat, let dry, then apply a second coat. Try Max Factor 2000 Calorie Aqualash or M.A.C Splashproof Lash.

16. I want smooth skin

Exfoliating everyday in the shower will help remove dead skin cells and little bumps on upper arm skin known as Milia. Try Make Up Store's Arctic Body Buff. Always moisturise after you shower to keep skin hydrated and buoyant.

17. I'm over my cellulite

The active ingredient in Chanel's Body Excellence Firming and Shaping Gel, Purple Bengle, stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and glycans, to help you on your way to dimple-free skin.

18. Help! I'm stressed out...

Don't take a Valium. Manage your stress by immersing your muscles in The Body Shop's Spa Wisdom Plunge and Purify Bath Soak. Epsom Salts will detox and relax, while babassu oil will moisturise and soothe.

19. I want a golden tan

Magic Tan is a quick and private way to achieve an all-over sunless tan. The spray tan booth preps, tans and moisturises you within minutes. To book, see A dusting of bronzer, like The Body Shop's Brush on Bronze balls, on cheeks and decolletage, will enhance your colour.


Whimsical Waves
Gently tousled waves will work for beach brides marrying on the sand.
Make wedding hair a cinch with this romantic styling idea.

Hair and Make-up : Jessie Glova

1. To create this summery style at home, setting hair in large rollers or pin curls.

2. "Wait for the rollers to cool, then take them out and gently start to loosen the curls with your fingertips," she adds.

3. To crank up the volume, backcomb locks at the crown. "Then twist both sides of hair at the crown, fastening with pins at the back of the head.

4. For a soft and feminine finish, secure a small flower clip on one side of the 'do.

5. Minimum effort is required to keep this style looking good throughout the day. In fact, a light beach breeze will actually help maximise the wind-swept effect.

6. A simple, elegant and unfussy gown will perfectly complement this look.


I've never worn or applied false lashes before, where do I start?

Go for shorter lashes that fit snugly along the length of the natural lash line. This will make application easier. Don't be afraid to cut them with scissors to custom fit them to your eye. If you don't feel confident applying full lashes, go for individual ones, like flares by Eyelure to give a winged effect at the corner of the eye. Most brands of falsies come with adhesive in the pack, but if they don't, glue can be bought separately

Start by dabbing a small amount of glue along the false lash line and wait about 30 seconds until glue is tacky to touch. Using tweezers, apply lashes half a centimetre in from the outer corner of your eye so when you look straight ahead, your lashes continue in the diagonal line from the corner of the nose to the corner of the eye. Press into place and after lashes feel secure apply a coat of mascara to blend the false ones with your own. If you normally curl your lashes, do so before applying falsies, otherwise you'll pull them off. It's fiddly, so practise!

Lash extensions are another way to boost the flirt factor. Salon professionals attach individual silk lashes to each of your own lashes with a specially formulated glue. These extensions last between six to eight weeks and cost around $150. See

For an even more long-term effect, start using growth stimulating formulas like MD Lash Factor three months before the wedding for fuller longer looking lashes.

Crowning Glory

Crowning Glory - Chic Chignon
Backless gowns will best suit this 'do.
Make wedding hair a cinch with this romantic styling idea.

1. For this chic and sophisticated style, start by blow drying your hair smooth.

2. Once totally dry, pull hair back into a ponytail on the crown of the head.

3. Wind the ponytail around itself to make a donut shape, secure with pins.

4. Wrap crystal ribbon firmly around the chignon. Ideal for a cocktail wedding.

Graduation Make-up Tips

Graduation Makeup Ideas
How to do your makeup for graduation


By day, you'll you be surrounded by family (beware the cheek-pinching aunties who can't believe you're all grown up) and friends you adore. By night, you'll need a look that transitions to full on party mode. And you've got to be camera-ready on a moment's notice, since photo ops abound. Everyone will be clamoring to make memories with their FlipCams and pocket cameras. Just a little heads up, and a few hairstyle and makeup ideas for graduation day. Try on graduation makeup and hairstyles in our virtual styling studio.
"Graduation day is an exciting event, whether you realize it yet or not. Your makeup should match your mood: totally ready to party."

Unlike other milestones like prom or homecoming, graduation day is not (we repeat not) a time to experiment with complicated updos, or even basic ponytails. When you throw your tassle to one side and toss your graduation cap in the air, you want to be sure you don't worry about what is going on with your mane. Opt for a loose hairstyle, worn down. If your hair is straight, achieve soft curl with a wide barrel curling iron and keep both sides pushed to the front of your shoulders for photo ops. If it's curly, embrace it or straighten it with a flat iron and make it gleam with a shine enhancing serum.

Be sure to tote your makeup bag with you (sitting in hot weather for prolonged periods is sure to make you melt) and play up your features with colors you know to be flattering for your skin tone. More adventuress gals can experiment with looks that accent their graduation gown. Plum or mauve eyeshadows are great paired with a purple gown; blues and greens look stellar with gold. Think of a black graduation gown the way you would think of a little black dress. Red lips, red nails and lush noir lashes look fierce. Valedictorians, eat your hearts out!

If you really want to stand out from the crowd (if not for your own pleasure, then so your parents know where you're seated in the crowd at all times), play up your graduation gown not only with makeup but accessories. Some girls opt to wear colorful Mardi Gras beads or wildly colorful shoes to play up their vibrant personal style.

Choose the Best Feature
1. A common mistake made when preparing for the prom or graduation is to overdo makeup. Big smokey eyes with dark lips can take away from your natural beauty. Choose what you think is your best feature and play that up. Downplay the rest of your face with more natural or subtle tones and give all the attention to your favorite part. It will make you look fresh and lovely and keep you from looking overly made up.
2. Color choices are key to keeping beauty looking natural and flawless. Foundation should be as close a match as possible to your natural skin tone. To find a good color of blush, try matching up your foundation to blush colors. Some blushes will stand out as inappropriate for your face, such as a bright pink with an olive complexion. The blush should compliment your skin tone, not contrast with it. Think of it like the tone of your skin when you become flushed, but more subtle. Choosing eye makeup color is easy as long as you know what tones work best with your skin and eye color. Those with green eyes tend to look best with dusty purples and taupe, blue eyes with browns, and brown eyes with blues or plum colors. These rules always apply for a natural look. To change over to evening, just choose slightly darker shades than you would wear for daytime. You should have three shades of complimentary shadows. Choose eyeliners a shade or two darker than your darkest eyeshadow. If the eyes are carrying strong colors for the night, go for a light lip gloss that complements the blush choice. If the lips will be the choice feature for the evening, go bold with a dark red or pink. Remember, don't go bold on more than one feature.
3. Always begin with covering any blemishes with a quality concealer. Put an even coat of foundation over your skin. Some prefer creams, but mineral foundation applied with a brush has gained in popularity since it provides a nice even coat of coverage. Add blush to the apples of the cheeks and just the smallest touch to any places that the sun would hit, such as nose, forehead and chin. When applying eye makeup, begin with the lightest color. Work above the eye crease and place coverage over the area between the crease and the eyebrow. Work the darkest color just into the crease area. Brush a medium shade complementary color over the lid itself. Eyeliner can be applied on just the top lid or both for a dramatic effect. Evening makeup looks usually have a darker, thicker line than daytime. Mascara tops off the look of the eyes. For evening, black or dark brown mascara are great choices. Lips are the finishing touch.
Other Tips
4. Don't have eyebrows waxed or plucked on the day of the event. Grooming can sometimes leave redness or dots on the upper eye, which are very difficult to conceal. Try to groom them about 2 days before the event. Be sure to bring any essentials with you to the prom or party. Carry a small purse and keep your lip color, foundation and mascara in it just in case of a makeup emergency. You never know when you might get teary remembering all of your great high school times, and having backup makeup for when your mascara runs is always a good idea.

Jessie Glova Airbrush Makeup and Hair Extensions

Jessie Glova Airbrush Makeup and Hair Extensions

Portuguese-Filipino makeup extraordinaire Jessie Glova keeps Cebuano fashion and makeup aficionados hungry for more as he pushes the boundaries of what Cebu Beauty and Makeup has to offer.

Jessie Glova Makeup and Style Studio now offers airbrush make-up to its clientele. Currently, Jessie Glova is the first and only airbrush makeup artist in Cebu to provide the service to regular salon customers, thus making the sought-after service much more accessible.

“I love and highly recommend using airbrush since it is very wearable. It feels exceptionally light, like as if you’re not wearing makeup at all. It also creates a flawless complexion perfect for close-up shots,” says Jessie of airbrush makeup.

Nowadays, a professional makeup artist is a crucial element to have amazing photos during memorable occasions— be it a wedding, debut, corporate soiree, event launching, or simply a serious party night out with girlfriends. With an airbrush makeup application, one does not need to worry about makeup steaking, fading or wearing off.

“The more it stays in your face, the more it’ll become finer. It will look more natural when it oxidizes and blends in with your skin.”

Airbrush makeup is a modern sophisticated form of liquid makeup that is applied with an airbrush. With the help of a trained professional, the tool sprays on in thousands of microdots of color which corrects and colorizes the skin.

Although this form of makeup has been in existence for several decades, it achieved its peak in popularity today to supplement the invention of High-Definition (HDTV) technology. Modern HD video cameras and DSLR photography can capture even the smallest of details that they show the ugly caking, streaks, and other minor flaws that show up in traditional makeup or paints.

It used to be the hidden secret of celebrities in looking absolutely flawless in and out of the red carpet. Airbrush makeup offered actors and actresses this subtle barely-there finish that left their gaping fans wondering how they achieved such glowing complexion.

With the availability of airbrush makeup in Jessie Glova Makeup and Style Studio, what’s there to stop you from looking oh-so-good now?

Jessie Glova is well-known in the Cebu fashion circle as well as the whole Philippines for his outstanding makeup artistry. He has worked with major business corporations, modeling agencies, wedding coordinators, designers, photographers, magazines and TV stations. Right now, he is GMA Visayas’ Starstruck official Stylist and recently just had a successful make-up presentation at the Marco Polo’s Corporate fair.

Aside from his excellent airbrush artistry, Jessie is highly trained in adding hair extensions that are 100% natural human hair. He also offers other customized services such as micro-ring, weaving, nail type and clip ons. For private consultations and bookings, you may contact him at (032)236-1808 or (0917)622-2747. You can also view some of his beautiful human canvases of art at or at his website.

Hi Im Jessie Recola Glova a portuguese-filipino origin based in Cebu Philippines ... and interested to work abroad for more intensive and challenging job... I love challenging job it brings out my creativity and unique approach when it comes to hair styling and make-up.

I have been a hair and make-up artist since as far as I can remember. I love to see colors and play with it. I used to play with my moms face cream and lipstick and use it as blush and eye shadow. I love painting so much. I am a happy child I believe. During my high school days my talents were tapped from singing, dancing, poster making, painting make-up and styling. I used up everything and made me realize that I can be more productive not just as a student but a person as well. Many of my relatives and friends are my so called victims. They are my canvass for my make up skill and they all loved it. Having the confidence I was able to do make up for school programs pageants and graduations and I can still recall my first wedding make-up it was my close friend Minerva Casas who truly trusted me and really paid me for my services and from that I learned that I can be a professional makeup artist.
During my college days it was my face that had been a canvass as I tried to do more make- up to myself and different make -up applications till I got the whole picture of diff. looks. I started with cheap products and some are given by friends... I remember my friend Jayward who loves to do make -up, challenged me to collect more make- up with brands. So I managed to save money and bought what I want....I joined the dramatics ensemble as a make-up artist. I transferred to the Adelante dance Troupe and became the official make-up artist. I became friends with the top make-up artists of Cebu, Philippines that time and they inspired me more to keep on doing it. In the year 1995 i joined the sandiego dance company and started as make -up artist and eventually became a performer. Being a performer, like in theater you tend to project different looks, be able to convey the message of a dance and song that’s where i was trained to see make-up as not just cosmetics but as a form of artistry.
Second semester of 1995 i tried different thing when i joined a fashion design competition which was held at a local mall. I won the Grand prize as young designer of cebu and was given the chance by Mrs. Young, the mall owner, to work in the store for 3 months and thankful being trained by the late Dudes Abella, one of cebu’s top fashion designer .College days was my turning point of what to do with my life... graduated Business Administration
After college I moved to Singapore to do make-up and Styling and perform as well. A year after that my boss told me to manage his bands in Malaysia but what happened was that I became the all around person there were like 3 -4 bands in my hand that ill help to style and train them on how to wear make-up. Our bands normally comprised 3-4 females same as the males and so it was a very tedious job because I have to be responsible with them ... we have traveled the entire south east doing our thing... I was bored so I decided to go to Australia to find a job in make-up but it did not work out. Eventually a friend offered me job in the United Kingdom to do hotel jobs. So I grabbed the opportunity stayed there for 2 years ... made friends with a Filipina from cagayan, Philippines who worked in a salon and introduce me to the right people in the industry. We both went to London fashion week and were stunned with the clothes and make-up. From there I know what I really want do with my life. She convinced me to join a crash course about skin care and make-up and asked me to assist her. I applied for another working visa to get a job of my preference make-up. I was on my sector based scheme visa. And I am only entitled to work in a hotel and not in the salon... so my application was denied and asked me to go back to the Phils. and get a license or apply for another visa which is a student visa ... but I don’t think I can afford it ...When I came back I know exactly what I want to do... Make -up is my thing... I have invested ... and dream to make it big not only in the Philippines but outside the country as well... Its a great self -fulfillment to do what you are good into and retrieve the first thing you love to do.
