How did you gain the confidence to wear bold looks in public? Share your tips/experiences!

First, just wear it around the house! Once you start seeing your reflection with stronger/bolder/more colorful makeup on, you’ll get more used to seeing yourself that way. You can work your way up to public forays by wearing bolder looks when you visit friends or have them over.

Realistic Runway Beauty from NYFW Spring 2012

September 22nd, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

 

Fashion Week just ended in NYC showcasing Spring 2012 looks.   My email has been bombarded with images;  some wild, some that make you think “huh?” and then there are some very wearable looks.   This season there were more subdued makeup looks than I’ve seen in the past few years – a reflection of the economy perhaps?  Designers not willing to take as many risks?  Subdued looks and styles tend to be the norm when the economy is going through a difficult time.   Whatever the case, I saw several looks that I liked and found to be very wearable.

1.  Charlotte Willer for Maybelline created this look for Jen Kao show.  Polished grunge was the inspiration behind the look.  Bright lips and flirty lashes are a contrast to the sleek eyes.

2.  Aaron De Mey for Lancome created this look at L’Wren Scott.   Aaron wanted a “super bronzed” look with bronze lips and chocolate eyes.  Browns, bronzes and golds were used to create smoky eyes and bronzer was used all over the face.

3.  Charlotte Willer for Maybelline created the look for the Bibhu Mohapatra. Charlotte was inspired by the women in Helmut Newton’s iconic photographs.  Instead of a bold eye or lip, everything on the face was left neutral.

4.  Charlotte Willer for Maybelline created this look for L.A.M.B.  This look was inspired from a trip to India.  A dark dramatic lined eye is the focal point – a modern take on kohl.  (As you can tell, the Maybelline looks were some of my favorite!)

5.  Essie was the nail polish of choice at Tory Burch.   Mademoiselle (my personal all-time favorite nail color from Essie) was used to create the soft, classic nail look to complement the floral prints.

6. NARS artists created this metallic smoky eye for Naeem Kahn.  Inspired by Spanish women he gave the models a clean face with bold brows and a smoky eye and nude lips – very wearable.

7.  Gato Zamora for Maybelline created this look for the Custo Barcelona show.  A modern take on natural beauty.  The skin is flawless, almost silicone-like and the brows are bold and lips have a sweet shiny look.

8.  A model in a Naeem Kahn gown.

9.  Dick Page for Shiseido crated this look for the Michael Kors show.  An African safari was the inspiration for this “Out of Africa” look.  Now I want to see the movie again.

Do you take photos of your makeup?

August 7th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Do you take photos of your makeup? (Maybe to share on a blog/community or else for personal use – like documenting your favorite looks!) Do you find it useful?

I do, for the blog, and before the blog, I shared them with various makeup communities. Taking photos is actually what helped me improve the most, because you really learn where your weak areas are and everything looks worse close-up than it does in person – so if you can get it right on camera, it’s even better in person.

Makeup for Ageless Beauty

April 4th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

I received a copy of the new beauty book Makeup for Ageless Beauty, written for women over 40 by makeup artist Linda Mason. 

Linda has a makeup studio in NYC called The Art of Beauty by Linda Mason and over the years has worked with many top celebrities and models such as Brooke Shields, Paulina Porizkova and Anne Bezamat, Carol Alt and more. 

In this book, Linda touches briefly on preparing your skin – from sleep, food and exercise to creating a perfect canvas with concealer and foundation. Then she gets into further details of how to create colorful looks.

There are 40 looks on women of all ages and colors featured along with the details of how she created the makeup looks on these women. Diagrams with product colors and placement work to help you create the looks at home. 

Clearly Linda is not afraid of color, and she does not want us to be afraid either. Just because a woman is over 40 doesn’t mean she can’t wear color on her face. In fact, she embraces it. Just look at the lovely Carol Alt on the cover and how she used color on her. Not all the women in the book are models either, so you don’t see only women with perfect, flawless, airbrushed skin. She shows us how to work with what we have to enhance and make our lives a little more colorful.
