The Makeup Show Chicago 2013 Recap

June 14th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

A few days ago, I attended The Makeup Show Chicago 2013 at Bridgeport Art Center. Just like last year, the show was PACKED with talents, fun people and lots of goodies. Read on to see more pics from the show and a few makeup tips from the pros.

NARS makeup artist Phuong Tran demonstrating how to create a smoky eye with nude lips at The Makeup Show Chicago 2013
Makeup artist Phuong Tran working for NARS Cosmetics created luminous skin and strongs brows with the most gorgeous smoky eye and nude lips above, courtesy of NARS Belle du Jour Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and my favorite nude color NARS Isola Bella Satin Lip Pencil. Phuong explained that makeup should not confined by rules and that it is Francois Nars’ practice to always do the complexion first. To create the smoky eye, Phuong started by coloring the eyelid with an eyeliner and adding eyeshadow on top before dabbing NARS Multiple over it for a glossy effect. Her trick to using Multiples? Warming it up with the fingers than patting it on.

Lori Taylor from Smashbox makeup demonstration at The Makeup Show Chicago 2013
Lori Taylor, Global Pro Lead Arist for Smashbox, shared with us some of her beauty favorites and showed us how to transfer red carpet beauty to every day. Her must-haves for creating that California “bronzy golden skin” she loves? Smashbox Photo Finish Luminizing Foundation Primer in Hydrating and Luminizing. Lori also likes to add a touch of matte bronzer on the cheekbones to warm up the complexion before anything else. She pointed out that a strong brow paired with a bright lip is the “it” thing in Hollywood right now.

Maurice Stein from Cinema Secrets makeup demonstration at The Makeup Show Chicago 2013

Cinema Secrets’ founder Maurice Stein returned this year to demonstrate how to camouflage discolorations with makeup. He showed us a “rock ‘n roll” method on how to apply loose powder. First, you put the product onto a powder puff, fold into half to squeeze out excess than dab onto the skin in a rocking and rolling motion before finally laying a powder brush flat onto the skin to swipe off excess. To prevent makeup melt-downs on set, Maurice does not use moisturizers with makeup (most moisturizers contain oil of some sort and will cause the makeup to slide right off). He likes to set his makeup with water and he stressed the importance of setting foundation and concealer instantly with loose powder to prevent creases.



Makeup artist Valerie P. Garcia from Obssessive Compulsive Cosmetics created an editorial look. She believed that editorial beauty is about being “organic” and going with the flow. The best tip from her? Using an Extra Virgin Olive Oil spray to set the look – now that’s a new one!

The Makeup Show’s very own James Vincent too shared a few tips during the Blogger Preview Party. To get the most luscious lashes, James suggested applying a lengthening mascara in the center of the lashes then adding a thickening one on the inner and outer corners. For a flushed cheek, nothing beats applying a stained gloss (James loves the new OCC Stained Gloss Lip Tar) on the apples of the cheeks UNDER your foundation.

February 1st, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

The new beauty products that launch in February often get overshadowed by Valentine’s Day gift guides and day-to-date-night makeup stories. But there’s plenty of amazing new beauty loot that’s not pink or red. Here are our faves. If you’re not in a relationship — or you’re anti paper hearts and cupids — February can be a rough (or at least annoying) month. So, for all of you V-day haters out there, I’ve rounded up my seven favorite beauty product launches.

6 Products to Buy this December

December 2nd, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Sure, it’s the season of giving, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give a few beauty goodies to yourself. These are the six best beauty product launches this month.. Holiday beauty products tend to steal the spotlight. Gift sets come in glitzy packaging; makeup collections are bedazzled, glittery, and all-around eye-catching. And I think that’s why I gravitate towards the other beauty products that launch in December — they’re the underdogs, and many of them are so much more fantastic than the gimmick-ridden holiday launches.
