We absolutely love everything about our Spring 2017 Celebrations Issue’s cover. Tessa Sam of Sweet Bake Shop was someone who we had dreamed of working with at this level since we first began our brand concept. With it being the Celebrations Issue – we hadn’t ever imagined that the shoot location would end up being our very own kitchen, (fun fact!) but what we DID know was that it had to feature a great cake and glowing, celebratory makeup! Luckily for us, Tessa suggested we work with her friend – Suzanna Chun, the Founder and Principal Artist of Tori Blush. We were positively pumped to feature Suzanna’s stunning work! Today, Suzanna is giving us some professional tips on how she achieved the look you see on our cover and feature pages!
SUZANNA: I love blush – it’s probably my favorite makeup product ever (it’s even in the name of my company!) and a key component to any makeup application! Don’t be afraid to apply blush on the apples of your cheeks as it will give your face a youthful flush of colour. Easiest way to apply is to smile and apply to the apples! Be sure to blend with the blush brush so there are no harsh lines and if you happen to apply too much, take your powder brush and buff it out!
Also, when wearing false lashes, don’t feel like you have to cover up the lash line with liquid liner! Most false strip lashes now are made with an invisible bands, so you can wear really natural lashes and keep your look that way without the harshness sometimes eyeliner can give! Now don’t get me wrong, I love me a good liquid liner, but for a more natural look, opt for a simple smudge of a darker shadow along the base of the lash line! (This is what I did for Tessa’s look!) Or you can try a simple wash of eyeshadow over you entire lid and apply the falsies on their own! Give it a try!

“I absolutely love this palette by Tarte! It has the perfect combination of matte and shimmer eyeshadows. You can create a fresh look by using the light champagne colours to brighten your eyes, or you can go for an all out glam look by using the darker shades for a smokey effect. This is my go-to palette for all of life’s celebrations!”
