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.

Hourglass Aura Cheek & Lip Stains

March 18th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

About a month ago I showed you the looks that Hourglass Beauty Director Michael Pierce created for the Adrienne Vittadini Runway show. I received countless emails from fans of the makeup looks and the fact that Adrienne used real looking women that weren’t teens or early 20′s – many of the women were supermodels we grew up with.

One of the products Michael used on the women was this new Aura Stain by Hourglass Cosmetics. What’s so different about this stain? Several things. One main factor is that with most other stains you have color control issues. They can go on quite intense in color and you have to really work them in quickly to get them to look natural. You also typically end up with stained fingertips after working the product in. But Hourglass has solved all these issues with the Aura Cheek and Lip Stains. 

The shade shown above is Petal. As you can see the top of it is a felt like cloth top. Turn the bottom to get the product out on the top and spread on your cheek – no fingertips needed and no staining of fingertips. 

You can see how sheer these go on, and very easy! They last for hours, too. 

The tip of the lip stain is also a soft fabric top. The lip color goes on more intensely, not as sheer as the cheek color, but is a long lasting stain.

As always, these new Hourglass products do not contain parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, phthalates.

12 Gorgeous Asian Eye Makeup Looks

January 7th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Ditch your frustration about applying eye makeup by embracing these looks that’ll play up your specific eye shape. What’s the most frustrating task for Asian women? Hint: It happens in the bathroom. Yup, you guessed it — applying eye makeup. Each and every time we meticulously pile it on, we open our eyes and it’s totally gone — not a speck of color in sight. The monolid is to blame and is one of the most common complaints amongst Asian women. It’s also the reason why blepharoplasty (or double eyelid surgery) is the second most requested cosmetic procedure among Asian-Americans. Couple that with stubbornly sparse, straight eyelashes and you have the reason why many Asian women give up on applying eye makeup and mascara altogether.
