Makeup @ Erickson Beamon S/S 2012

More photos of the look by MAC – more like the step-by-step process, which I felt really privileged to watch as Chantal Miller (MAC Senior Artist) go through and demo for the other artists. They did a few different color combinations as well. I’m hoping to get more information about what they used in the next day or two!

Makeup, Hair, & Nails @ Erickson Beamon S/S 2012

WOW! The styling at Erickson Beamon was ridiculous–and I mean that in the best way! After seeing a lot of nude/neutral colors and looks at other shows, it’s such a breath of fresh air! I have a ton of photos to go through, so I’ll be updating this post in the next couple of hours with more (and I’m still working on getting a breakdown of what was used for the makeup).

Nonie from Butter London for Beauty.com created pops of color on the nails using a neon orange, chartreuse, magenta (with a little touch of shimmer), and teal. The magenta and teal shades are definitely part of the spring/summer collection but she hasn’t decided whether the other two will come out (I totally voted for chartreuse!). They put a different color on each fingernail and toenail. The backstage area was so cramped, there were Butter London team members sitting on the floor and crunched in some really awkward-looking positions!

PHYTO for Beauty.com was styling the hair, which was sleek and elegant twist around the crown of the head. It was designed to be understated, because the makeup and nails were already so bold and vibrant.

MAC was responsible for the makeup. Chantal Miller, MAC Senior Artist, was the key artist for the makeup look, and she used a lot of PRO products, like Paintsticks, Glitters, and Pigments. The models also wore hand-cut paper lashes, which the models said were odd at first but after a few minutes, they were used to them. Lots and lots of glitter along the brow bone and underneath the eye, as well as a bold lip with more glitter patted on top. It was a superstar team back there; I also spotted Senior Artists Fatima, Romero, and Neil (UK) at work. (Fatima even told me she reads Temptalia, which was totally a “No way!” moment for me.)

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.

Illamasqua Gender Intense Lipgloss Review, Photos, Swatches

Makeup That’s Just Pure FUN!

Illamasqua Gender Intense Lipgloss (£12.50 for 0.2 fl. oz.) is not a wearable shade by any stretch of the imagination. This is a shade that completely embodies the word fun. It’s different; it’s unusual. It’s something to be used for that just-right-occasion, which might be Halloween for some, an avant garde photo-session with your best pals, or lightly patted on over your favorite lipstick to give it a bluish cast.

Gender is a medium blue that leans a little teal–it’s described as a sky blue, but it definitely had this teal edge to it that made me think less sky blue. I could not smile in swatch photos – it just did not look right! I felt like it made a mockery of the shade, so “straight faced” it was.

It’s almost opaque, but it didn’t apply as evenly or as solidly as other Intense shades have in the past. I would probably lay down a concealer/foundation base (or even a blue eyeliner) and then use a lip brush to apply this–I think that would help it look more even. This is a shade that’s only available through Illamasqua; you won’t find it at your local Sephora!
