Bridal Focus: Nina Ubhi

7-20_Bridal_Ubhi_SocialWith 14 years of makeup experience in London and Dubai, Sigma PRO Brand Ambassador Nina Ubhi has built a reputation of being one of the most sought-after artists for a bride’s big day. We asked her for a beauty breakdown of this stunning bridal look she did on location in Mauritius. We asked Nina how she created one of the four looks she produced for the week-long celebration.

Product breakdown
Eye Shadow in Topaz in the socket

Nina’s Tips
-Topaz eyeshadow looks great on Olive skin tones. I use it to contour the eye rather than add color. I love how warm this shade is. It contours the eye socket without leaving the skin looking dirty or dark.

To contour the eyes I use the small tapered blending brush as it fits perfectly into the socket meaning you get a more precise contour rather than a smoky look.

Aura Powders are my new favorite blushers! I used to carry around a well-known blush palette in my kit because I felt I needed to have a large selection of colors at hand but now I just take 3 shades from the Sigma Aura collection and they complement every client face that I’ve worked my magic on!

The winged liner brush has to be my favorite make up brush. It’s the exact shape and size an eyeliner brush needs to be for gel application.

Bridal Focus: Lynn Austin

Wedding season is underway, get ready to create looks that will be captured and viewed for years to come. Typically, bridal looks are soft, on the natural side, and stay for hours on end. Sigma PRO Ambassador Lynn Austin shared this bridal look with us where she enhanced the bride’s natural beauty while kicking her everyday look up a few notches.

“The bride requested a natural glam for her wedding day, she didn’t want any bright colors and wanted to stay in the neutral brown family for her eyes. I recommended we add a black shadow in the outer corners of her eye to add dimension, especially if she wanted her eyes to pop for photos. She requested to have her eyes speak to the crowd and I feel like we accomplished that with my amazing Sigma products.”
