Runway Beauty: at Rebecca Minkoff Spring/Summer 2015

September 8th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Inspired by hazy, diffused photos taken by Deborah Turbeville, the look at Rebecca Minkoff Spring/Summer 2015 centered around “nouveau natural” makeup look with sexy bedhead hair and watercolor, ombre nails.

“To complement the bohemian pastels and gauzy romanticism of Rebecca’s collection, we focused on petal pink hues and softly illuminated skin with an unexpected sheen.” explained Stila Global Director of Creative Artistry Sarah Lucero. First, Lucero applied Stila Stay All Day Foundation and set it with Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation. To add a pink glow on the cheeks, she used All Over Shimmer Powder in Kitten. Next, she defined the eyes with the Window Shadow Palette and Smudgestick in Espresso then coated lashes with Mile High Mascara. To finish, she groomed brows with Stila All Day Brow and dabbed Color Balm Lipstick in Olivia and Vivienne.

Nails
Inspired by the unique 3D prints and color scheme in the collection, manicurist Michelle Saunders working for essie created freehand watercolor nail art for the hands. She started with one coat of blanc to make the polish shades appear brighter. Then beginning at the nail bed, she applied one coat of bikini so teeny to half of the nail. Next, she applied one coat of turquoise & caicos to the remaining half of the nail, slightly overlapping with bikini so teeny in the middle. She dipped a striping brush in lollipop and created a thin horizontal fault line across each nail. Directly after creating the fault line, she applied a generous amount of good to go top coat over the entire nail and continued to blend towards the tip of the nail until the desired look is achieved.

Hair
On damp hair, stylist Odile Gilbert working for Kérastase applied Mousse Bouffante and created a side part and blow dried hair with fingers. Section by section, she spritzed Spray A Porter and used a 2″ barrel curling iron in a vertical direction, twisting hair around the barrel and leaving the ends loose to create soft waves. Once all sections are curled, she ran fingers through the hair and sprayed V.I.P liberally throughout. Finally, she set the look in place with Laque Dentelle.

The Makeup Show Chicago 2014 Recap

June 10th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

After 2 days of immense fun, learning and shopping, The Makeup Show Chicago 2014 has finally come to a wrap! Read on for a brief recap of some of my favorite moments from this year!

At Deconstructing Artistry: Techniques for Unconventional Beauty, Founder of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics David Klasfeld teamed up with Brand Manager & Director of Makeup Artistry Courtney Tichman to create 2 powerful, organic looks. The duo also show us a few non-traditional ways to use OCC’s iconic Lip Tars, including using the Clear one as a primer on the eyes and the Metallic formula as a blush.

Next, I sat in at the How To Create A Multi-Dimensional Smoky Eye seminar by NARS Cosmetics artist Justin Heslop. Using the latest Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow, a wet/dry shadow that made its debut at the show, Justin created a gorgeous smoky eye look and shared with us a few ways to nail Francois Nars’ signature makeup style: 1) Always do the complexion – primer, foundation, concealer and set with powder – before the eyes. 2) Lay out the basic shape of the smoky eye with shadows then use Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder to diffuse the edges and sweep away any shadow fallout. 3) Add in a bit of blush on the crease then blend towards the temple to make the smoky eye less disconnected from the rest of the face.

At Creating Celebrity Style, top notch celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff, who has a long line of A-list clients including Naomi Watts, Natalie Portman, Kate Bosworth, Eva Mendes and more, shared with us a few of her must-haves and tricks. Pati pointed out that the key to nailing red carpet makeup is to work with the stylist and create makeup that complements, not distract. Instead of using powder, Pati is big on priming and loves a mattifying primer in the center of the face and an luminizing one on the sides. Some of her faves? L’oreal RevitaLift Miracle Blur, Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector and NARS Light Optimizing Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 15 (also one of my HGs!) She is also a HUGE fan of SUQQU Foundation (a Japanese line only available in the UK and Asia) and uses 2 shades on her clients – a lighter one in the center and a darker one on the sides, which helps to contour.

Then at the Runway Trends seminar, MAC Senior Artist Victor Cembellin, whom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting at the MAC PRO Sculpting The Face Master Class, gave us the low down on the hottest trends from the Spring/Summer 2014 runways. 1) Day Glow is all about “raw” or as the everyday customer calls it, “real” skin 2) CC-Through Colour involves the use of color (lilac and peaches) but in washes for a “real” effect 3) Light FX, is the use of light and white, as seen at various shows I attended including Altuzarra and 4) The New Eye-Deal, which involves making classic beauty statements like block eyeliner but in a modern, never-before-seen way. The end result? An insanely beautiful yet modern runway look.

Let’s not forget Make Up For Ever. During Color Explosion: From Beauty to High Fashion, Make Up For Ever educator Jessie Powers demonstrated how to create a vibrant eye look using Make Up For Ever Flash Color Palette. Jessie stressed the importance of building a classic base before working with color and to always start out sheer when working with creams and setting with a powder – be it eyeshadow, blush or even loose powder – to prevent creasing.

Shu Uemura Celebrates 30th Anniversary With Zing

July 5th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Japanese brand, Shu Uemura, makeup artist Zing created eight gorgeous makeup looks that were showcased at Pacific Place, Hong Kong last month. “Some of the new makeup styles for the campaign are inspired by Mr. Shu Uemura’s classic creations, based on my impression and understanding of the brand. Using the latest Eyeconic limited-edition collection and new elements of my own making, I set out to pay homage to Mr. Shu Uemura through two creative forces – that is to inherit and to innovate. The shooting was impressive because the spirited team demonstrated utmost professionalism despite the tight schedule.” said Zing.


While Zing said his favorite look out of the eight is the one above, I just LOVE the second one (the lashes and colorful balls are SO Shu Uemuera!) To see more of the shoot – which btw was the work of one of the hottest photographers in Hong Kong, Tim Wong – check out the behind-the-scene clip at the very bottom!
