New York Fashion week Beauty… a bit late!

That Hurricane IRMA has me drained,exhausted and not my usual self. So, forgive for the delay on this post. I did not make it to NYC for fashion week this year but I did chat with a few of my friends on what they did or saw behind the beauty scene.

Rumor has it my fav’ things were hot in NYFW fashion week this year!

One is an Ancient Chinese Secret now once again let out of the beauty bag you may know I have used for years on myself and on my clients.This double sided wonder is a fan of Asian Royalty where they used it in gold down to now the everyday woman in jade. One side is for the eye area and one for the face.Rolling in circular motions and upward strokes it brings a beautiful glow to the face. The women of the Orient would use it for ant-aging. One cool tool. Now, model’s and makeup artists covet it.NB8J0393

Another is Rosebud Perfume Companies of salves called Rosebud Salve. The original lips salve is used on the lips,top of the cheeks,on the shoulders and added to a baby tooth brush to groom brows in place or pesky hairs around the face.

At NYFW and other beauty events they also used the infamous sheet mask and more. I  too LOVE, LOVE, LOVE K Beauty anything and these instant gratification wonders!They really are magical! Therapispa has an KBeauty Essence your skin will love.

Not your basic everyday toner or skin freshener. It too gives the skin another layer of love!

And the cat eye lined eye is still holding it’s beauty reign.

The  infamous makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury worked her magic with a shimmer and contour stick and illuminated and chiseled the skin. She is always on point!

That’s all the buzz I have to share tonight.

I hope you explore some of these beauty secrets and get glowing!

 

A Chat with Makeup Artist James Vincent

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.James Vincent photo

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.

Make-Up:

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!

 

 

 

Day 27 to beautfiul skin

Today I saw a client I had not seen in a year or more.
She is in her late 70’s.I was happy she called as I had not had the pleasure of seeing her vibrant personality and enjoy conversations with her.
She booked an appointment for to update her look with a makeup lesson and to replenish her beauty supplies. Oh my gosh…right before my eyes in 3-D and technicolor she LOOKED amazing!
Now,she truly looked 15 years younger.

I did not ask her what she had done but she bubbled over with it as if she had a glass of champagne delight. She told me she had what I see on TV almost every hour. Know what it is?
Paid spokesperson Debby Boone and the new face procedure.
My client had a Lifesytle Lift
She did NOT look like she had surgery,she looked well rested and was so drunk in happiness!
She bragged about the doctors,told me step-by-step process and the TLC CARE she received.
I was amazed. Now, I simply had to share with you. I wondered what is that Lifestyle Lift the infomercials talk about and now I know.
I am THRILLED for my clients who might want to know this.
If you want a face lift…I’d say they are worth looking into and getting a consult with too.No I am NOT their paid spokesperson,nor being paid to say these words.
Seeing is believing!

Other ways to give your face and eyes a lift?Smile, wear a gorgeous lipstick,add a touch of shimmer lotion to the top of your cheekbones before blush and add some shimmer to your brow bone too.Get your brows designed by a professional they are true designers to give your eyes a lift.
Lastly, attitude is everything…keep yours pretty positive.
