Runway Beauty: Cool-Toned Neutrals at Altuzarra A/W 2015

February 17th, 2015

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

“Calm, neutral, natural” was the idea behind the Ingrid Bergman inspired look at Altuzarra A/W 2015. Models wore “a cold face” that consisted of creamy gray and copper shadows on the lids, pale lips and sheer pink nails.

Pecheux started by prepping skin with M·A·C Mineralize Timecheck Lotion before adding M·A·C Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation and setting with Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder. On the eyes, he blended M·A·C PRO Grey Paint Stick on the inner corner to the center of both upper and lower lid and Penny Arcade from M·A·C Trend Forecast Fall ’15/Eye on the outer corners. He applied Very Violet Studio Eye Gloss to the center of the lid for a wet, sheen look and added Fascinating Eye Kohl on the waterline to open up the eyes. Finally, he subdued the lips with M·A·C Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation and pressed Mouse from M·A·C Trend Forecast Fall ’15/Eye for a soft monochromatic gray look.

For the nails, Kandalec layered two coats of adore-a-ball for a subtle sheer pink tint.

Runway Makeup: Barely-There Beauty at Jason Wu A/W 2015

February 16th, 2015

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

At Jason Wu A/W 2015, the look was all about barely-there beauty with a hint of neutrals on the eyes and soft, natural waves.

Lead artist Diane Kendal gave skin a bare matte finish with Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activity Serum and Nude Miracle Liquid-to-Power Makeup. She slightly defined the cheeks with Solaire Star Bronzer and the eyes with Fresh Face and Barely There from the upcoming Jason Wu for Lancome Multi-Palette and added Grandiose Mascara on curled lashes. She finished the look with Lancome L’Absolu Rouge in Delicate Lace.

On the nails, manicurist Deborah Lippmann created a modern nude look with Lancome Vernis in Love in Beige Romance.

Hair-wise, Odile Gilbert working for Kérastase Paris created a sexy, natural look with no volume at the crown. Starting with wet hair, Gilbert applied Kérastase Spray à Porter Buildable Texture Spray from roots to ends and blow dried with a diffuser, using fingers to enhance natural texture without adding volume at the roots. She parted hair in the middle and used a curling iron to create waves in the mid-lengths of the hair, leaving the ends straight. Next, she applied Kérastase V.I.P. Dry Volumizing and Texturizing Spray for texture and ran fingers through the waves to create a natural look before finishing with Kérastase Laque Dentelle Flexible Hold Hairspray.

Shiseido Predicts 2020 Makeup Trends

December 23rd, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Earlier this month, Japanese beauty company Shiseido gave us a sneak peek of what to expect in 2020. “With the 2020 Olympic Games taking place in Tokyo, people from all over the world will flock to Japan and attention will once again be focused on the country’s unique tradition and culture. In addition, the athletic trend will become more mainstream,” says Shiseido Senior Hair & Makeup Artist Setsuko Suzuki (鈴木節子), who devised the following two makeup looks.

Shiseido 2020 Makeup Trend Report - Japan Color
Look #1 Japan Color
Utilizing the 3 main colors found in Geisha makeup, the look above aims to bring a modern take on traditional Japanese beauty. White is used to create translucent skin and highlight the inner corners of the eyes while graphic black eyeliner frames the eyes and red makes the lips pop. Also worth noting is the dash of red eyeliner on the outer corner, which is a common practice among Geishas.

Look #2: Sporty Pop
This look is all about radiant skin paired with a graphic blue eye and orange lips to convey a fresh, light and sporty vibe. Very much like my blue graphic eyeliner look for A/W 2014 but with an added touch of color. I can definitely see this becoming mainstream and a hit among many.

MAC PRO Headshot and Audition Makeup Master Class Recap

September 29th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Tonight, I attended a new PRO Masterclass by M·A·C Cosmetics, Headshot and Audition Makeup, at the Deer Park location. The class was presented by the very talented and experienced Senior Artist Fatima T, who showed us 3 different demos and tricks on how to do makeup for headshots on both women and men.

MAC Headshot and Audition Makeup Masterclass makeup demonstration
* Headshot makeup is not about transformation but to bring out the unique beauty of the model. Stick to makeup that is classic and avoid trends to avoid looking dated.

* Always moisturize the skin prior to makeup application, even when skin is oily. Fatima likes Lightful Softening Lotion on everyone.

* When doing foundation for photography, remember to put some on the ears and down the neck as well.

* Contouring is very different from bronzing. When contouring, look for shades that are on the cooler side to mimic shadows, which tend to be gray. Bronzing on the other hand, is to “brown” the skin. A few bronzers Fatima likes are Studio Fix in N50 and Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Give Me Sun and Sun Power.

* Steer clear of products with too much shimmer and sparkle as they tend not to photograph well.

* When doing makeup on men, do not highlight too close to the lashline to avoid the “pretty boy” look.

* Instead of using powder to set or touch up makeup, try buffing Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone lightly on the T-zone, around the nostrils and chin. Feel free to leave the eyelids and nose bridge dewy for a more youthful look.

* To counteract the gray/blue undertones found in undereye circles, around the lips or even on mustaches/beards, stick with orange and peach correctors.
