Runway Beauty: Dewy Look at 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring/Summer 2015

September 14th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

The dewy look is always a hit on the Spring/Summer runways but at 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring/Summer 2015, models rock a healthy, monochromatic illuminizer look that is totally to-die-for.

Nails: Elisa Ferri for NARS Cosmetics
Hair: Paul Hanlon, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Stylist for TRESemmé

“There is a lot of see-through transparency and airiness to the collection – I wanted that to come through in the makeup. My inspiration is sensuality; the way the morning light hits you as you wake up in your bedroom, with sensual skin beaming with rays of light. I highlighted the cheek bones, high planes of the face and the bridge of the nose to accentuate and bring out that glow in each girl.” explained Daly.

She started with NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and NARS Stick Concealer before setting with NARS Light Reflecting Setting Powder – Loose. Then, she added Reckless Blush and the right side of Jubilation Dual-Intensity Blush, both new for Spring 2015, on the cheeks and temples.

On the eyes, she used the right side of Jubilation Dual-Intensity Blush and Valhalla Single Eyeshadow (new for Spring 2015) and coated lashes with Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara. The lips were made glossy with Guyane Lip Gloss.

Nails were coated with Zakynthos Nail Polish, a medium tan color.

Hair-wise, the look was inspired by a cross between Stephen Klein’s 1990s photography and the romanticism of the Pre-Raphaelites, but with a punk edge. “It’s a simple, organic and youthful look that allows the collec7on to shine whilst s7ll being a look girls can achieve themselves.” said Hanlon.

He first prepped the hair by applying TRESemmé Climate Control Mousse through the hairline and mid-lengths to add volume and give it hold without soaking the hair. Next, he rough dried with the TRESemmé Salon Professional Volume Blow Dryer and used a soft bristle brush to pull out and straighten the hair around the hair line. He used TRESemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo on the roots of the hair to create a matte and mouldable texture and then moving around the hair line, back combed fine sections of the lengths and lightly sprayed with TRESemmé Climate Control Finishing Spray to define and hold. Then, he pulled the hair into a ponytail at the crown of the head and secured with a hair tie. Next, he divided the lengths into two sections and then knotted (as you would your shoes laces), twice or three times depending on the length of the hair, secured with pins and left the ends to sstuck out for a “punkier” look. Finally, he pulled out strands around the sides and back of the hairline and finished with a spritz of TRESemmé Climate Control Finishing Spray.

Runway Beauty: Effortless Chic at Creatures Of The Wind Spring/Summer 2015

September 6th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Skater boys and mirage served as inspiration behind the beauty look at Creatures Of The Wind Spring/Summer 2015. This translated to makeup that was “raw, a little undone and effortlessly cool” with flushed, overheated cheeks and ombre faded nails that were equally as chic.

Makeup: NARS Director of Global Artistry James Boehmer
Nails: butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador Katie Jane Hughes

“The models looked great when they showed up for the casting—great skin, lots of freckles and a left over summer-vacation look to them, so we groomed the brows and gave the cheeks a ” explained James. He evened out skin with NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and NARS Stick Concealer only where needed and traded in bronzer for a new Lipstick for Spring, Ligueria, on the cheeks for the overheated effect. Eyes were given a slick of Vent Salé Lip Gloss, again new for Spring 2015 while brows were brushed up with NARS Oural Brow Gel.

On the nails, Katie Jane started off with butter LONDON Nail 999 Rescue Basecoat . Next, she applied the new butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Full Steam Ahead (available November 2014) to the tips before adding butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Diamond Geezer with finger to create an ombre fade. This allowed the darker shade to come through softly for added dimension and an ultra-modern effect. To finish, she topped off the look with butter LONDON Nail 999 Topcoat.

Looks To Try For Fall 2014: Graphic Eyeliner

September 1st, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

The graphic eyeliner trend continued to be a hit this fall with makeup artists interpreting the look in an even more unconventional, modern manner. At Anthony Vaccarello A/W 2014, red lipstick and black liquid eyeliner were applied on models’ lids and under their eyes with dental flossfor a “sophisticated and arty cool” look. At Marchesa, gel and liquid eyeliner in shades of blue and green were layered over each other for a feminine look while Zac Posen presented us with a “black swan” graphic eye with feather-like strokes at the inner and outer corner of the eyes.

Fall 2014 runway-inspired Graphic eyeliner makeup look
For my take, I used my favorite pencil liner, NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Khao San Road. The pencil glides on very easily and I ♥ that it doesn’t budget once it sets! I started by drawing a line along the socket in light feathery strokes and extending it past the outer corner. Once I got the shape I wanted, I thickened the line for more intensity. Next, I lined the lower eye and left the center san eyeliner. The rest of the face was Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation in Cashew only where needed, NARS Blush in Day Dream on the cheeks, L’oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess Mascara in Blackest Black and Senna Form-A-Brow Eyebrow Stencil Kit in Neutral on the brows.

Tip: To nail this season’s graphic eye, just allow your creative juices to flow. Instead of a filled-in line, leave a gap wherever you feel it. Remember to also experiment with different colors and textures. For instance, try layering a liquid eyeliner over a gel or cake liner for maximum staying power. My top picks are Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner and NARS Eyeliner Stylo.

NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Reviews, Swatches and Photos

June 24th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

This summer, NARS Cosmetics turns up the heat with its very first wet/dry shadow, Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow. Designed to be used both wet and dry without damaging the texture, the Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows can be applied dry for a sheer, airbrush-like finish with a luminous sheen or with a dampened brush for high-impact and intense, opaque color.

NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Review

NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Reviews

The Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows come in a square-shaped magnetic compact about 1.5 inches by 1.5 inches and contains 0.05 oz/1.5 g of product. For reference, a NARS regular Single Eyeshadow ($25) contains 0.07 oz of product.

There are 12 colors available that range from the lightest pinks and beiges to the darkest blacks:

* Andromeda is a shimmery white gold color.

* Europa is a shimmery light warm peachy pink.

* Dione is a metallic taupe.

* Cassiopeia is a shimmery white with bluish pink sparkles.

* Callisto is a frosty silvery pink.

* Desdemona is a shimmery burgundy.

* Himalia is a shimmery topaz. It is darker and warmer than Dione.

* Lysithea is a metallic grey.

* Sycorax is a black and the least shimmery color out of them all.

* Phoebe is a plummy color with blue sparkles.

* Giove is a shimmery dark navy.

* Subra is a shimmery dark brown with just a hint of plum.

While the colors were all pretty and very wearable, I wish the variety could be a bit better. Some of the colors were pretty similar and it would be nice to see some greens and bronzes instead.

Texture-wise though, there was nothing I could pick on. The shadows felt super creamy and soft and blended like a dream. When used dry, they applied with good pigmentation and left behind a shiny finish; while using them damp instantly intensified that effect and made the color pop even more.

Lastly, the wear was phenomenal too! Even when worn dry with no primer underneath, the shadows stayed on 8 hours without creasing or fading the slightest bit. More colors in this formula please!

Quick Tip on using the shadows wet from NARS Cosmetics artist Justin Heslop:- To get your brush perfectly damp and not soaking wet, wet a makeup sponge then push the brush into it before dipping into the shadow.

NARS Matte Multiple Review, Swatches and Photos Part II

April 1st, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

More on the new NARS Matte Multiple, a multi-purpose makeup stick that can be used on the lips and cheeks with a matte finish.

Like the original Multiple, the Matte Multiple comes in a portable black tube with a twist-up design. Although the tube looks just a bit thinner, you only get 0.26 oz of product, which is half as much as the 0.50 oz with the original.

The formula is also different. Unlike the original which can be used on the eye, cheek, lip and body, the Matte Multiple is only meant for the cheek and lip. It can be used dry for more intensity or wet for a sheerer effect. A great way to create dimension as suggested by NARS, is to use it wet over the high points of the cheek for a sheer veil of color, then dry underneath the cheekbone.

Color selection wise, there are a total of 7 that ranged from pinks and corals to bronzes. I had reviewed the bronzer shades in my last post so here are the remaining 4.

* Anguilla is a light baby pink with yellow undertones and the lightest color in the whole collection.
* Exumas is an orangy apricot.
* Siam is a super bright cool-toned poppy red. It looked really intense in the tube but blended to a softer red that created the perfect flush for my skintone.
* Laos is a rose coral that looks like cherry Chapstick.

The colors were all very wearable and doubled nicely as both blush and lip colors on my NC30 skintone. But they felt creamy and glided onto my cheeks easily, they were not moisturizing enough for my dry lips and clung onto flakes. The colors were also very pigmented, in fact, more so than some of the regular Multiples. Plus they dried off quickly to a matte finish that stayed on for 8 hours straight.

Overall, NARS Matte Multiple is nice investment that works best as blush and bronzer.
