I recently had a chance to bring a fellow PROfessional makeup artist James Vincent to the TV station with me as he was in sunny Florida to guest speak at The Makeup Show in Orlando last weekend. I enjoyed chatting with him and got his take on what is going to be hot for this spring 2016 on the makeup scene.
In his 20 years in the beauty industry James has worked with Lady Gaga,our current President,Courtney Love,Liv Tyler,CNN and Reese Witherspoon to name a few.
He recognizes that innovation and technology in makeup and skin care are ever changing and that the absence of animal testing is key.
Here is a peek at his HOT for spring list that we will be wearing this season to come.
SKIN CARE: Cleanse,polish and protect are key steps to healthy skin.
Sun kissed eye lip and cheek: Peach and pink will be your go to shades for the season.
A little bit of bronzer goes a long way! However apply it only wear the sunshine usually hits your face.And he recommends you mix it with a dash of your fave blush.Don’t just use it alone.
Black Liquid Liner is always in.
Candy Apple Lips that won’t land on your hips! James recommends a blue based red gloss on top of and only in the center and another shade of red lipstick.
Blue Eyeliner and Eye shadow: Blue eyeliner and shadows get a bad wrap.but says these shades of blue really lift up the eyes and brightens up the face too. He suggests you use pencil eyeliners over liquids or creams for liner as they are easier to apply.
GLOW on: He likes Scott Barnes Body Bling (JLO’s makeup artist) as well as Melanie Mills (A La Dancing with the Stars and more) Gleam body shimmer. they both illuminate the skin on face and body.
I hope you enjoyed meeting this makeup artist and stay tuned for more interviews and tips!
