NYFW Exclusive Coverage: Beautiful Island Girl at Christian Siriano S/S 2014

September 8th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Inspired by Isla Mujeres on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, the Christian Siriano S/S 2014 Collection was all about colors and vivid prints. As a result, the beauty look centered around glowy skin, a bright lip with beachy hair and colorblocked nails.

Makeup artist Polly Osmond working for Hourglass Cosmetics went for an “island girl” look with a focus on “a diffusion of light, texture and color”. She kept the skin fresh by first prepping with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, followed by Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer and Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer. The cheeks were then lightly contoured with the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (coming October for Holiday 2013) and finished with a dab of Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum on the apples for a glowy look.

On the eyes, Polly applied the Incandescent shade from Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette all over the lid. She added a shimmery white eyeshadow, Shell from Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Shadow Palette, to the inner corner and along the top and bottom of the lashlines to open up the eyes. Next, she coated lashes with Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara while brushed the brows with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum onto brows for a bit of shine.

Finally, the lips were prepped with Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil, before coated with Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Muse, a gorgeous orange coral liquid lipstick that dries down to a matte finish. The outline of the lips were then slightly blended with a lip brush for a diffused look.

Nails
Red Carpet Manicure celebrity manicurist Lisa Logan was the mastermind behind the super cool colorblocked nails for the show. “Nails shouldn’t have to compete, they should only complement,” explained Lisa. Using Red Carpet Manicure, the first at-home LED gel system, she created press-on tips with a nude base and a block of yellow down the middle. “We used Fake Bake, a natural color, and The Perfect Pair, a yellow, but added White Hot underneath the yellow to make it pop.”

Hair
To complete the beachy vibe of the look, lead stylist Anthony Cole working for Sebastian Professional gave models a “texturized, dreaded ponytail, some higher some lower”. He used three key products – Volupt Spray, Mousse Forte and Microweb Fiber – before using a straightening iron to further create waves for an erratic texture. Finally, he added a chain brand using 1/4″ section of the hair from the bottom of the ponytail and wrapped it around the ponytail for a soft, organic feel.

How Do Nail Effects By Sally Hansen Work?

February 5th, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Post image for How Do Nail Effects By Sally Hansen Work?

The Beauty Brains are linking and hopefully you’re loving it! All our questions this month come from other beauty bloggers, like Jenn of Literature Couture. Check out her creative character makeup tutorials!

Jenn asks…I’m loving the new Sally Hansen Nail Effects, but I’m have two questions about them. One, how exactly does the company manage to use real nail polish that isn’t dried and crumbly by the time I open the package? Two, is there a way for me to make my own strips to avoid the hassle of manicuring my non-dominant hand?

The Right Brain responds:

Regular nail polishes are a mix of film forming agents, adhesive polymers, and colorants all dissolved in a solvent cocktail (usually ethyl and butyl acetate with a dash of isopropyl alcohol.) To “stripify” the polish, Sally Hansen’s Nail Effects use a formula that’s a little more plastic-y than a regular nail polish. It looks like they’ve applied the polish to flexible substrate (polyethylene terephthalate) and dried off all the solvent. The result is a strip of nail polish that remains flexible but still sticky enough to adhere to your nail.

Can you DIY nail effects?

Sure, it’s actually quite simple. First, get an advanced degree in organic chemistry. Then, gain access to a mixture of over 2 dozen flammable chemicals and the associated equipment you’ll need to mix them properly, then…ok, I guess it isn’t quite so easy. This chemistry is quite complex and even the most accomplished DIY formulator would have problems doing this at home. Looks like you’re stuck with Sally’s strips for now.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Swatches Part 2

August 4th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

After my first batch of OCC Lip Tar Swatches, I decided to let the artist in me come out and play. Following the basics of color theory, I used your typical primary colors – NSFW (primary red), Yellow Iron Oxide (mustard yellow) and RX (primary cyan blue) – along with Feathered (white), to create my very own shades. To start off, here are swatches of just RX and Yellow Iron Oxide as requested by you guys:

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics RX Lip Tar Swatch

OCC Yellow Iron Oxide + RX + Feathered Lip Tars

OCC NSFW + Yellow Iron Oxide + Feathered Lip Tars

Since OCC Lip Tars are uber opaque as I mentioned in my review, I had to use three times as much of the white to lighten the color to make it more wearable. RX also seemed to stain my lips, skin and even teeth (yikes!) so using a brush for application and an oil-based remover is highly recommended.

What’s your favorite shade?

OCC Lip Tar is available at http://www.occmakeup.com/ for $13.
