Graphic Eye at Anthony Vaccarello A/W ’14

February 28th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

At Anthony Vaccarello A/W ’14, the look was all about a graphic eye in shades of red and black. “Anthony’s collection is graphic and modern, edged with accents of color. I created a makeup look in the style of graphic fashion illustrations with ultrafine lines of black and red to accent the eye. The look is sophisticated and arty cool.” explained lead artist Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director.

To create the eye look, Tom Pecheux dipped dental floss in Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Envious and Double Wear Zero-Smudge Liquid Eyeliner in Black then drew lines on models’ lids and under their eyes. No mascara was used – instead, lashes were curled and Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye Pencil in Onyx was dotted between them. Brows were defined with Double Wear Stay-In-Place Brow Lift Duo.

The rest of the face was kept bare with Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10 and Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer SPF 10, set with Perfecting Loose Powder. Tom finished the look by dabbing Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick Rebellious Rose Lipstick in the center then everywhere else with Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Intense Nude.

Keeping up with the graphic element, Christina used Pure Color Envy Nail Lacquer in Red Ego on the outer curve of models’ nails.

Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Camilla Belle at 2013 LACMA Art + Film Gala

November 7th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

The gorgeous Camilla Belle looked chic as ever spotting some new bangs and plum lipstick at the 2013 LACMA Art + Film Gala. Keep reading to see how Celebrity Makeup Artist Kinzee Kubek created the look!

how to get Camilla Belle's makeup look at 2013 LACMA Art + Film Gala
“Skin, is so important! You always want to start with a clean, blank canvas, that’s well hydrated. Not only does it bring the skin to life, but it also helps maintain the integrity of the makeup. So before I applied any color, I first moisturized Camilla’s skin with a light veil of Dr. Perricone Advanced Face Firming Activator. First I applied Laura Mercier Concealer to the under eye, in the color SC-1. Then, with a foundation brush, I built up an even base of Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, in the color, 5.75. After applying both the concealer and foundation, with a wet beauty blender sponge, I went back and gently blended the makeup so that there was a seamless even finish.

For eyes, I applied a light layer of Marc Jacobs eyeshadow (a light color), from the Style Eye-Con #7 Plush Shadow Palette. A sleek, slightly winged out liquid liner, finished the eye. For that I used Chanel, Ecriture de Chanel Automatic Liquid Eyeliner in Black. To give Camilla a slight definition to her naturally beautiful bone structure, I applied Kevin Aucoin sculpting powder, to subtly contour her cheekbones. On the apples of the cheeks, I applied Chanel Powder Blush in the color 68 Rose Ecrin. For her lip color, I chose a new lipstick from the Fall 2013 NARS collection, which is a matte lipstick, in the color La Paz.

Finishing off with final touches, I applied two layers of Armani Eyes To Kill mascara, in black. Then on the face, just a few dots of Smashbox photo op to highlight her where the light catches. This was applied to the top of her cheekbones. And last but not least, the powder I chose to use was from Make Up For Ever, called HD powder (make sure to thoroughly blend this powder, or it’ll show up on camera). And voila! That’s the look.”

Strange Tips for Surviving Prairie Winters

January 11th, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

By Rae Chen, Local Contributor – Canada

Rae, the easily-distracted Canadian blogger behind theNotice: a beauty blog, is neither the brains nor the beauty of the operation. (The subjective existence of either has yet to be determined – we’ll get back to you on that one.)

She is, however, a rather relentless makeup junkie with a camera, a lack of a filter, and a writing style that’s rather more snark than sycophant.

Strange Tips for Surviving Prairie Winters

There are winter skin tips that I’m sure we’ve all heard by now: don’t shower in hot water, switch to a heavier moisturizer, make sure to exfoliate your body. But – what about all the tricks that slip through the cracks?

When you grow up on the Canadian prairies, you pick up a trick or two. Here are some of mine!

Please note: instead of featuring only Canadian products, this post focuses instead on products (some Canada-only, some not) that are great for our rather unique winters. So, no matter where you are in the world – if it’s cold, there should be something in here for you, too!

Check out the best products for a tough winter from cheeks to lips to skin!

Play the texture game


Your automatic response might be to go with stronger colors as the days get shorter (I know mine is) but consider going for sheerer formulas, too. Translucent, creamy products tend to be more forgiving on dry skin and lips, so I’ll switch to medium-sheer creams, gels, and liquids to create that dewy “glow from within.”

If you find that your cream formulas harden up in the winter, try putting them under your blow dryer for five to fifteen seconds. Don’t shy away from adding a bit of a faux-flush! Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you have to succumb to a ghostly pallor, right?

Light it up!


Luminizers aren’t just for the nighttime anymore – with today’s products, they’re way more wearable than they were ten years ago. If your skin’s looking rather lackluster this winter, try a highlighter on the tops of your cheekbones, under the arches of your brows, down the middle of your nose, and buffed into the high points of your forehead and chin. A general rule of thumb is that the larger the shimmer, the more obvious it’ll be – so swatch before you buy, and pick what you’re most comfortable with!

TIP: If you’re going to be photographed, make sure to “flash” your shimmer beforehand if you can. Take a quick self-photo both with and without flash, then check to see how your shimmer reads on camera. (Too little and you won’t notice it; too much and you run the risk of looking oily!) When in doubt, a less is more mentality is the best bet.

I tend to use creams for the face and pressed powders in the eye area, but again – go with whatever you’re most comfortable with. Gold and peach shimmer usually sits best on warm skin tones, while whites and silvery pinks are typically most flattering for cool skin tones.

Keep it bronzed (but just a bit)


Okay, so: one of my pet peeves? Orange faux-bronze skin tones in the winter. It’s bad enough in the summer, but – winter! No one is naturally bronzed in the winter!

Thing is, though, I do think bronzer is worth keeping on hand after the leaves fall. It makes a great contour (if you choose a matte formula), and a light dusting of bronzer is a lovely way to pick up your skin tone. Just — make sure to use a light hand, okay? Less is more! More is not more; it’s just overdone!

Add another drop of moisture


I have extremely dry skin all year ’round, so to be honest, my skincare regimen doesn’t change much in the winter. If you’re finding yourself parched, though, here are a few things to try!

German Nivea is one of my all-time Holy Grail moisturizers – I wear it for both night and day, but oilier skin types may find it’s best suited as a night creme. Strangely, some London Drugs shops carry the Made-in-Germany ones, so keep an eye out if you’re in Western Canada! Non-German Nivea (typically made in Mexico or Vietnam, I believe) is easier to find, but it’s quite a bit more greasy, and doesn’t pack the same kind of moisture.

Partially because I’m silicone-free for my skincare, I’m hugely dependent on petroleum jelly and unscented mineral oil. The former is great for hydrating your lips, slathering onto your hands and feet at night, smoothing down flyaways… it’s such a multi-tasker; there’s barely anything it doesn’t do! And the latter is great for an extra layer of moisture coming out of the shower; just spray it on in the tub or rub it into your skin before moisturizing. A DIY facial spray is great to have on-hand, too; I make mine with glycerin and distilled water in about a 1:8 ratio, so I know that it’s silicone-free, paraben-free, oil-free, and completely scentless.

One last product rave: for super-dry skin, I’m a huge fan of Marcelle Essentials Cleansing Milk ($14.50). I literally have not bought another cleanser since trying it for the first time! The difference between a cleansing milk and a moisturizing bar or liquid is enormous; I’m so impressed with the product.

I’m done rambling about skincare now, I promise! Hope it’s not too freezing-cold wherever you are ;)
