Top Sydney #fashion #model shares her #beauty secrets with Williamspromakeup!


Having worked with top designers around the world, Tiffany Winteler is fast becoming one of the most in-demand models in Sydney. I have had the pleasure of working with Tiffany Winteler on a number of shoots and she is so talented yet so down to earth. Here is what she had to say when I interviewed her.

How long have you been modelling?
I've been modelling full-time since finishing uni and before that I was doing it on the side while

at uni and working. However I think it's only when you do it full time that you can invest enough 

time into getting better.

What were your favourite jobs/campaigns?
I'm not sure really, there have been so many shoots that I've really really enjoyed!

I think one of the best things about modelling is that you get to meet so many interesting 

people!

How do you keep your skin so flawless?

To be honest I think I've been quite lucky with my skin because only now do I treat it more 

carefully because I need it to be good. 

I think the best tip is drinking a lot of water but to be honest I still have to remind myself to that 

each day.

 What are your three beauty must-haves in your hand bag?


It will have to be a face cream, a concealer and a mascara


How do you handle the pressure of castings?
I guess I go into them expecting not to get the job and if I do it's a great surprise:)

How to organise a large #bridal party to be ready on your #wedding day



Having a large bridal party is becoming more popular now than ever before and why not? It makes the morning so much more fun when you have a large party of your friends an family to share the experience of the magic that is the morning hair and makeup makeover. Recently, I created these beautiful hair and makeup looks for our beautiful Northern Beaches bride and her bridesmaids, with my expert team member Lia who also has a background as a studio makeup artist. The images are by the talented Philippa Enid.

So how can you all be ready on time and have fun in the process? Here are some easy tips to take the stress out and put the pamper back in your pre-wedding hours.

1. Prepare ahead of time

Your hair and makeup team should be experienced enough to allow plenty of time so as not to rush you all. Starting too early and everyone becomes weary, starting too late and it is a very unpleasant mad rush to finish before the cars arrive.

I suggest for bridal parties of over 5, allowing at least four hours and having a team of two hair and makeup artists in hand. Ensure you have spoken with your hair and makeup artist to compile a list of who is getting ready when. Given my media background, I simply draft a call sheet for my clients, as I would do if I was working in film or television, so that everything runs smoothly and efficiently.

2. Don't let the bride go last


Cool calm and under control

I highly advise brides to be the first or second to have their hair and makeup done. This is so there is adequate time to hop into the dress, prepare the veil and have some down time to meditate on those glowing minutes before walking down the aisle. As much as it is nice to have a sleep in while bridesmaids get ready, the result is running a risk of something distracting you last minute, the flowers arriving late, a member of the family bailing out on the wedding causing emotional havoc, or any other unforeseen distraction that could cause delays. So be organised, sleep early, wake up early. I also advise brides to have their hair and makeup done, and while the rest of the bridal party is prepping, have a decent meal. It will most likely be the last chance you eat for a very long time. A decent protein smoothie will keep you full for hours without bloating you out. You can always touch up your lipstick last minute.

3. Less is more

Sometimes we can all get too bogged down in the detail and forget to just relax and go with the flow. A natural, effortless look that is easy to maintain throughout the day will save you time and money. If your wedding is outdoors, try an up do or a half up style that is wind-proof for both you and your bridal party. If your bridesmaids dresses are vibrant and colourful, keep makeup neutral to balance out the overall effect. I love the natural look for brides, with soft pinks and smokey plums. They photograph beautifully and look timeless in photos.

A model with over three years' fashion, commercial and editorial experience, Mary Bianco is one of the most versatile models on the Sydney scene. WIlliamspromakeup talks to her about her beauty secrets, and how she survives the competitive industry.

What have been some of your favourite jobs so far?

My favourites were my TV commercial role in  theTrade Secret 2013 campaign and also my very first billboard for Western Sydney TAFE campaign. I have also been in a promotional video shoot in the Hunter Valley for the 2015 Asian Cup, modelled for MixnMatch Co label and the Vizcosa Boutique store, the Silver Bullet haircare brand, appeared in a Gareth Jay & Joe May music video and, of course, worked on a high fashion shoot for WIlliamspromakeup.

How do you keep your skin so flawless?

I always moisturise. I am using Cetaphil, a simple daily facial moisturiser with SPF 15 which protects my skin from the sun.


What are your three beauty must-haves in your hand bag?

I only have my chapstick lip balm to moisturise my lips and my Kate Moss Rimmel London 'kiss of life' red lipstick in matte. 

How do you survive the pressure of castings?

I handle it by having the confidence in myself, focus on what is needed at the casting. I try not to worry about who I am competing with. I go to castings to represent myself and/or my agent and I try to do it to the best of my ability.

What is the one thing you recommend to girls starting out in modelling?

Give it a go! Be yourself and believe in yourself and take that opportunity.

#Bridal tip - how to create flawless skin for your special day



I love creating beautiful bridal looks for my clients, and had the pleasure of creating this beautiful look recently for the gorgeous Amanda. These pictures have no skin retouching and doesn't she look amazing!

Stipple full coverage foundation

One of my secrets to creating flawless skin is my brush technique. It is something I teach my students and it is a fantastic way to have your makeup stay all day. After primer, use a flat buffer brush and stipple foundation in circular motions. I am a big fan of reliable, premium products like Makeup Forever HD Foundation. It is a must-have in my kit and provides amazing coverage without being too cakey. The more you work the foundation into your skin, the longer your foundation will last.

Clean up after eyeshadow
Another trick is once you have completed your eyeshadow, take a small flat concealer brush and run a dash of concealer gently along the bottom lashline. It instantly creates a clean, flawless look. Buff a little translucent powder over the top for a creaseless finish.
Highlight lip area
For flawless lips, once you have applied lip colour, run a small precision brush with concealer across the outer areas of your lips. It will prevent bleeding and again, make the final look lovely and clean. I love YSL Touch Eclat for this, as it instantly brightens and plumps the lip area.

Camera friendly translucent powder
A good, silica-free translucent powder ensures a photo-friendly finish that lasts all day. I love Jurlique Lavender Silk Dust. It is natural, smells divine and finely milled. And all my brides love it!

"Thank you very much for doing my hair and make up for my wedding. I was so happy with my hair it was exactly the way I wanted to wear it on the day. You had the expertise and knowledge of where to place my veil without the hair style being affected. I also loved the makeup look you did on me - I didn’t feel “made up” at all. It was a better version of me with my makeup. I felt beautiful, natural and glowing all day. I was so calm and collected on the wedding day and enjoyed the morning spent with you getting ready for the day, you even helped me get my gown on! Once again thank you very much for everything you have done for me. Your fast responses to my emails prior to the wedding date helped keep me calm before the big day. I would have no hesitation in referring you to any one that is interested in bridal hair and beauty in Sydney. Many thanks." - Amanda.

The finishing touches

I loved creating this gorgeous hairstyle for Amanda!


Beautiful from head to toe!

What makeup is used on television?

Ever wondered what makeup is worn on television to give that HD flawless finish?

I recently had the pleasure of appearing on Channel Nine’s Mornings with the fabulous Sonia Kruger, and it was such a lovely, relaxing experience to be in the makeup chair again for a change, having my own face done!

It was a fantastic experience to be on live television, as part of showcasing celebrity styles inspired by Sophia Vergara, Eva Longoria, Kate Upton and Cameron Diaz. So here is the insider of what makes it with makeup on television.

Foundation

I have always heard fantastic things about Giorgio Armani’s foundation, and it is a network television favourite. It glides on beautifully, has excellent coverage and looks like a second skin on camera. I wore it all day and it didn't budge! I'm still holding onto my beloved makeup Forever Foundations, but would happily recommend the Armani range as a truly premium product.





Concealer

Sometimes early mornings can call for some heavy duty concealer, and what better way to banish dark circles and hyperpigmentation than Kryolan’s dermacolor range. This is a media must-have, and was used underneath my eyes to cover minor skin flaws. You can even set it with the setting powder for a complete waterproof finish. 


Eyeshadow

 Hold My Gaze: Eye Shadow x4MAC palettes are a media must, with a range of matte, pigmented shades that offer a truly professional finish. I had a deep purple brown shadow applied to my crease for a more smokey eye, with a matte bone shade underneath my brow for a little natural lift. I also had a gel eyeliner applied close to my lash line to add depth, as studio lights can tend to wash out eyes.



Blush

Apart from MAC, NARS products are also widely used, with their range of blushers, bronzers and highlighters looking dewy and fresh in HD. Personally, I am a massive fan of Bobbi Brown blush, mainly because I find them more pigmented, and the makeup forever cream  blushes are a dream.






Gloss

NARS Chihuahua Lip GlossWith MAC and NARS glosses a-plenty, I had a rose pink blend of gloss applied to my lips for a natural look, which didn’t overpower my eyes. I do love the MAC and NARS shades and they are superbly pigmented, but I prefer playing with my OCC lip tars as they are more vegan/vegetarian friendly. 






Powder


 Studio Fix Powder Plus FoundationMAC studio fix and setting powders are very popular on set, for their durability in the media environment. I have a few MAC studio fix foundations and find they blend really well and are excellent for the studio environment. During the day, I would recommend Jurlique's lavendar silk dust as an alternative as it is a little more natural, less heavy and keeps me a little more matte than MAC products.
