Backstage Beauty

This morning I took the TV viewers on River City Live to a Backstage BEAUTY Pass… to Fashion week.

Makeup artists who work behind the scenes work tirelessly painting,primping,pampering and and above all hydrating the skin!

It is all about the skin. If the skin does not look it’s best the makeup won’t look the best.

TwinMedix: These essentials got some complexions on the right track with an advanced skin care collection!

Embryolisse: A French delight that models and makeup artist can’t get enough of for gorgeous skin.

Danessa Myricks Beauty: Her Beauty Oils and Dew Balm gives the skin the glowiest look!

Waleda Skin Food:ย Is another moisturizing lotion that some models request.

Sheet masks from Korea were yet another instant prettier skin fix!

Jade andย  Rose Quartz gemstone eye and face rollers: were used to relax the face and make the makeup glide on like silk after a moisturizer or serum was applied.

I’ve even seen silver spoons used in an ice bath and applied to the face for puffy complexions at fashion shows! Or the makeup artists use spoons dry and at room temperature ones are used to curl the eyelashes.stainless steel spoon

Rosebud Salve: A pro FAVE’ was used for unruly tresses,chapped lips and to give the skin a glowy look. This is in my makeup kit too.

The NO MAKEUP Makeup Look made a big appearance BUT it takes makeup and lots of work to achieve the look.

Aquaphor is another lip and face product that is seen behind the scenes.

Makeup Brushes: There are plenty used andย  in all shapes and sizes. There is a brush and sponge for every part of the face and body. Powder puffs rule too!

One of brands of nail polish used was Essie. Who doesn’t love it? One of the hot hues used was Licorice. A deep gray black shade of sexy.

The Beauties of the SAG Awards

Just my quick take on the SAG Awards 2013. I was so happy to not be on a makeup assignment and be able to sip Chablis and watch them on TV.
Did you happen to watch the show too?

My fav’s:
Actress Jennifer Lawrence looked amazing her dress was a classic and unique mix in a midnight blue hue.Her red lips and hair shouted HOLLYWOOD too!

Nicole Kidman’s hair which an insider told me was done by hot hair stylist David Babaii did that amazing new solid bob haircut with a sleek,super straight gorgeous style.
The hair products used are my new find It&ly Hairfashion products. I love this brand!
Her black illusion dress with flowers was amazing.

Kerry Washington looked beautiful in a white dress that looked like a bustier too.She always looks amazing~

Naomi Watts hair was like a sexy old Hollywood beauty and dazzling in chic sleek dress.

Jane Krakowski lit the red carpet with her orange dress.

Sofia Vergara looked stunning in Donna Karan and as always she rocked her decollete!!!

The unique accessory on a celebrity was Penelope Cruz with 4 tiny gold beads in her ear…I thought they were jewels but later learned they were accupuncture beads to center and calm her spirit.
I must try those beads with my accupuncturist. Did you see them?

I loved,loved, loved the Lorraine Schwartz lavender jade necklace that Amanda wore!

The STAR whose dress missed the mark? Julianne Moore…designer dress that did NOTHING for her BODY,breasts or face. Where was her stylist?

What did you think? Share with me!

Lessons learned on the red carpet…celebrity or not. Don’t let the dress wear you. YOU should wear the dress!
