A few weeks ago, I had the huge pleasure of visiting the Issada Concept Store in Brisbane City to have a make up session with store Manager, Jacqui.
I was on a mission to find out more about the Issada Cosmetics range, as I had briefly visited the store last year . The concept behind the Issada makeup with benefits had stuck with me, and I was pretty keen to learn more to share with you as I strongly believe that in every way possible we should be making ourselves healthier and better people even when wearing makeup.
Issada specialises in Skin Treatment Makeup and Mineral Makeup with a total focus on skin health. So you aren’t only covering up any flaws in your skin, you are also improving your skin while you wear your makeup.
Over the hour we were together, Jacqui took the time to do a full skin analysis prior to my makeup application and then selected specific Issada products that would best suit my skin type. Explaining each product she was placing on my skin, Jacqui painted my face up in such a beautiful way, I didn’t even want to wash it off before bed that night.
When Jacqui asked me about my make up routine at home, I had my honesty pants on and told her straight up that I am renowned for putting my make up on in the dark. I think at this point she thought she was talking to a mad woman. I went on to explain that I leave for work before the sun comes up, so slap on some BB Cream, a dusting of powder, blush, eye shadow and finally a good lashing of mascara and then I race out the door praying I managed to get everything placed in the correct positions on my face.
Even on my days off, I had to admit to Jacqui that I have very little time to spend on elaborate make up application sessions and do work hard on the looking my best with minimal effort look.
So with Jacqui’s help we selected 5 Fabulous Issada products that all of us busy Mum’s need in our makeup bags.

Issada Especially For You :
A great way to learn about make up application and the types of products that are perfect for your skin, is to book a make up application with Issada. The face chart given to you at the end, mapping out each product used on your skin is a valuable resource for the future. Enabling you to recreate the look and know exactly which products/colours you need to purchase.
A full makeup application at Issada which includes skin analysis and face chart costs $85 but it is redeemable for product purchased on the day. This is a great way to learn professional make up techniques, have your make up done and add to your Issada collection.
