February 13th, 2015

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

To balance out the Bianca Jagger inspired mix of femininity and masculinity in the Marissa Webb A/W 2015 collection, Maybelline artist Yadim teamed up with TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu to create a soft and fresh look on the models.

Yadim started out with Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation for the base. He applied Face Studio Master Conceal where needed and around the brows to soften them. He used a taupe shade from THE NUDES Palette to contour cheeks, Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream-Gel Shadow in Barely Branded to highlight the high plains of the face and added Eye Studio Color Molten in Rose Haze to give the cheeks a pink glow.

On the eyes, he created a tinted effect by applying Eye Studio Color Molten in Taupe Craze up to the browbone and below the lower lashline. Then he added Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream-Gel Shadow in Barely Branded on the inner corners of the eyes and the bronze shade in Eye Studio Color Molten in Endless Mocha on the lid before glossing it up with Baby Lips in Quenched. He further defined the eyes by adding Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner from the middle of the lid outward past the edge of the eye.

Finally, he added Color Sensational Lipcolor in Born With It and Color Sensational The Mattes in Nude Embrace on the lips for a soft, natural-looking effect.

Hair
Syfu created two different looks on the models. To create the braided bun for a girly look, she prepped wet hair with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam, rough dried it and lightly finished the hairline and ends with a Mason Pearson brush. Using a tail comb, she created a center part from the forehead to the middle of the crown, then parted hair from ear to ear and back brush this section for added texture. Next, she pulled the top section of hair straight back and secured with an elastic. Then, she divided the remaining hair into two parts and back brush and tied sections into a knot at the top of the ponytail and started a three-strand braid through the lengths, fastening ends with an elastic. She wrapped the lengths of the braid into a bun at the nape of the neck and secured with large hairpins before setting with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Ultra Brushable Hairspray.

For the texturized down-do a la Bianca Jagger at a boys club, Syfu first prepped hair with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam and rough dried it. Then she back brushed hair for a light, airy texture and created a center part. To finish, she applied TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Perfecting Gelee and TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray throughout the hair for texture.

Do I Have to Kill Animals to be a Cosmetic Chemist?

Post image for Do I Have to Kill Animals to be a Cosmetic Chemist?

Britty says…I’m very interested in makeup and I’m a chemistry major so naturally, I’m interested in being a cosmetic chemist but I’m absolutely NOT okay with animal testing. I’m not a vegan but I am a vegetarian and a STRONG supporter of animal rights. I realize this may be a little hypocritical since I USE products that I’m assuming have been tested on animals but I want nothing to do with the actual testing. I don’t want to be the one to test on animals, or be around people testing on animals or even have to pass a room where I know animal testing is going on inside. I also don’t want to meet people whose job it is to test on animals. I realize that some brands don’t test on animals but what are the chances of working for one of those brands? Do I have any other options? Or should I just choose a different career? Thanks!

The Right Brain responds:

The companies that the Beauty Brains have worked for haven’t done animal testing in years, and they’re fairly typical of the industry at large. These days very few  cosmetic brands actually test on animals. Don’t believe us? Alchemist (one of our Forum members) has had similar career experience: “Until recently I worked for a big international manufacturer (in regulatory affairs), in my 11 years there I never saw any animal testing done on cosmetic products, and company policy was that it was not done.”

Also, you have to understand that even when cosmetic companies DO test on animals, they don’t do the testing themselves. They outsource it to companies that specialize in that kind of work. (You certainly don’t want to work for one of THOSE companies.)  So, the chances of you running into an animal tester in the hallway is slim to none.

However the catch, if there is a catch, is the fact that these companies all use ingredients that may have been tested on animals at some time in the past.
