My First EVER Trip to the Dermatologist!!!! Loved it!!!

Posted by Amber Silva on Thursday, May 18, 2017, In : Makeup and Tips 
I've decided this is my year to really take care of myself. One of the ways I am finally doing this is by going to a Dermatologist! I want to start getting facials regularly and get a professional peel! 

What really got me to finally book an appointment with a dermatologist was a bump that formed on my forehead about a year or two ago. I've gone to my Dr a couple of times to get it frozen off but each time it grows back bigger. I have other little bumps on my forehead and temples that just won...

So excited to share Limelight by Alcone's amazing skincare with my clients! Chemical Free, Natural and Organic Ingredients!!!!

Posted by Amber Silva on Sunday, May 7, 2017, In : Products 
I have been patiently waiting to find the absolute perfect products to retail to my clients! It had to be something I truly truly believed in. Not for the money (that is a great perk) but as any makeup artist will tell you to get smooth, glowing, long lasting makeup it all starts with taking amazing care of your skin! 

Alcone Company has been providing professional products to makeup artists since 1952. I have been using some of their makeup products in my kit for over a decade. They have now...

Natural and Organic Skincare from Limelight by Alcone!!!! SO AMAZING!

Posted by Amber Silva on Tuesday, January 17, 2017, In : Makeup and Tips 
I have always been into nutrition. As a kid when people asked me what I wanted to be I always said "nutritionist". I haven't always taken the best care of myself but I was given a huge motivator to get healthy recently (which I will blog about another time). Health is not just about what you put in your body but also what you put on your skin. Skincare absorbs into your skin and into your body. Thats what really drove me to start using Limelight by Alcone and sharing my experience with others...

Why I love using airbrush foundation on brides and clients!

Posted by Amber Silva on Thursday, August 7, 2014, In : Makeup and Tips 
I was fortunate to be introduced to airbrush makeup about 10 years ago by Celebrity Special Effects Makeup artist Michael Pack. Michael gave me a 3 day course on airbrush makeup and set me up with an airbrush compressor, airbrush gun, and his favorite airbrush foundation. I do not do any special effects makeup but I have had many years to really fine tune my airbrushing skills for beauty and bridal makeup.

Airbrush makeup when done correctly is absolutely amazing. I feel it is important to use...

Face Atelier Ultra Pro Foundation

Posted by Amber S on Saturday, March 8, 2014, In : Makeup and Tips 

I am so excited I made this investment in my kit. I worked with a gorgeous free spirited eloping bohemian bride yesterday that wanted her skin to look like her skin.  She wanted a foundation that gave her great coverage, long lasting, and still looked like her skin.  She didn't want her skin to be airbrushed to perfection. She said she wanted to look like a better version of herself.  Which is almost impossible because she's pretty close to perfect. I had just received my Face Atelier in the ...
