It is surely one of the busiest and most important times in your lives, but do not procrastinate with booking hair and make up appointments and thinking about how you want to look at that special Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Experienced and local make up artist, Tiffany Elie, recommends making those appointments four months in advance. Here, Tiffany has useful tips, ideas and looks to ensure you and your daughter look and feel their best for your mitzvah moments.
Stay natural: Make sure to stay natural and fresh-faced for the service. Use age appropriate makeup to lightly conceal imperfections, but highlighting her features is key.
Make sure your hair is up: Your friends and family have come to see the Bat Mitzvah read from the Torah, not to look at a curtain of hair over your face! Make sure to wear your hair up so everyone can seeyour beauty.
Setting powder not shimmer- Neutral matte products are best for the service. If needed, use setting powder to make sure there is the perfect amount of glow, it absorbs oil without looking too cakey.
FOR THE PARTY
Think shimmer: These beautiful young ladies are 13, not 18, and by keeping the application of makeup light and well-blended, they can feel festive without looking like Toddlers and Tiaras. Shimmer and color pigments can create evening looks without looking too heavy.
Pick a feature: If you are playing up the eyes, go for a soft gloss, it will keep the look youthful and not too old.
Pull color pallet from the dress: Incorporating colors from the dress can pull together the look. Be careful to use dark colors on the eyes and lips, if dress color is dark, think of accenting it with lighter shades of complimentary colors.
