The past 3 years have been a great adventure and I would like to say a big thank you to my family, friends, clients, educators, photographers, models, fellow makeup artists and beauty therapist who have supported me – I can honestly say I have met some amazing people and made lots of new friends on my journey.
For those who don’t know Jax-Glam Beauty actually started out as ‘Jax-Nails’ & ‘Jax-Tanning’. In December 2011 I went on my first cruise to the Caribbean (I’m now a cruise addict!) and a colleague encouraged me to get my nails done and have a spray tan (Thanks Roisin!). I loved the treatments but not the service, so decided I wanted to be able to lean how to do it myself. Within two months I was trained in Manicures, Pedicures, Gel nails and Spray tan’s and started working as a mobile beauty therapist in the evenings and weekends on top of my full time job in property.
Since then I have had; 1 full time,1 part time job, worked with lots of pamper and events companies, attending local events and national festivals. I have also qualified in; shellac, nail art, eyelashes, brow treatments, facials, waxing but it was the makeup course in which I found my true love!
I am very lucky to have lots of lovely regular clients, as well as meeting lots of lovely brides to be and pampering hens.
Its been a very busy 3 years but really rewarding and can now honestly say I love my job and again would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has made it possible.
When you spray using an airbrush it atomises the product making the particles of make-up tiny. This is why airbrush make-up is used in HD TV and film. The particles in the make-up become much smaller than when it is conventionally applied and therefore less visible. HD TV picks up absolutely every imperfection! There are also hygiene benefits to spraying. When we use a conventional brush or our fingers there is potential to spread bacteria and germs across the face. By spraying Airbase make-up onto the face we can avoid this.
What about its staying power?
The silicone in the make-up makes Airbase incredibly long lasting and waterproof (and tear proof!). As silicone is heat resistant you don't get shine through as you can with water or oil based make-ups, and stands up to the intense heat of studio lighting and in bright sunshine... Airbase really does last all day.
You can build upon each layer to create the perfect coverage . Silicone foundation really does stand the test of time! It is this that helps give Airbase Make-Up its unrivalled durability. That means that your Airbase Make-Up application lasts all-day making Airbase perfect for bridal beauty - providing unrivalled durability
Luxurious feel and lightweight on the skin
It allows skin to breathe Airbase Foundation does not clog pores and allows skin to breathe. Last but not least, Airbase Silicone Foundation feels luxurious on the skin and is incredibly lightweight.
CND (Creative Nail Design) first created Shellac back in May 2010 and revolutionised the nail industry. Since then, it has become one of the most popular nail treatments..
Shellac is a hybrid, (meaning half nail polish and half gel) The product is applied like a polish to the natural nail (or over extensions) and is cured via a UV light. Because the product is cured, there is zero drying time.
When applied and removed correctly Shellac should not cause any damage to your nails - here are some for looking after your Shellac ...
No matter how many weddings I do, I am always really honoured to be a part of a brides special day.
I can honestly say I have really enjoyed meeting everyone I have shared their wedding day with, and I really hope my brides enjoyed their day as much as I enjoyed the morning.
