NEW Smashbox ALWAYS ON LIQUID LIPSTICK

Liquid lipstick is taking the beauty world by storm. It’s every-where. I personally love it as much as cream lipstick – the traditional kind. Have you tried any liquid-lipstick. What do you like about them? What do you dislike about liquid-lipsticks?

NEW Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow

 

PHOTO OP EYE SHADOW SINGLES

Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow $18

We polled makeup artists in our L.A. photo studio for their most versatile, eye-enhancing shades—then packed their faves into one-swipe, true-color singles.

If you have not tried this eye-shadow, let me tell you, it’s super-blend-able like it promises. I love it when I’m on the go, and don’t have time to blend, blend, blend. 

Stacey’s Tip:  When it’s highly pigmented, my best advice is to do you eye-make-up first. This way, if you need to clean anything up that falls on your face, you can make-up remove it. Instead of placing a kleenex under your eye, white powder under your eye, etc. I personally find these to be additional steps that make applying make-up much longer than it has to be. This way, you can clean up any mess from your eye-makeup with a make-up remover if you need to. Apply your base (primer, foundation, concealer, powder) after you have your eye-makeup is in place. 

  •  Velvety formula
  • Highly pigmented, even color

4 Tips to Perfect Brows

Image result for brow grooming

I never realized how much work goes into grooming brows, until I became a make-up artist, because all I ever did was get my brows waxed, filled them in with brow powder and a brow brush to maintain them. If I wasn’t going to rely on waxing my eye-brows, then I suggest tweezing them. 

Image result

My Tips:

Ingredients:

Make an Appointment with my Esthetician  – Wax Brows

Brow Brush to brush up the brows

Brow Brush to fill in the brows.

Brow Powder to be used to fill in the brows.

 

Directions:

Once your brows have been waxed. Grab your brow/eyelash brush to brush your brows. I prefer to brush them upwards. They look fuller, cleaner, as well as this technique really opens up your eyes. 

With your make-up brow brush of your choosing, dip it into your brow powder. Use brow powder, as opposed to eye shadow. Although, you can use it. Eye shadow isn’t really sturdy enough. It’s a bit more flaky, messy, light. Brow powder is much sturdier to remain in place without using brow gel. Remove any excess product onto a paper towel or the back of your hand. I have a few faves. Smashbox, YSL, Anastasia – For a full list of my Top 9 Brow Powders, please click on the link. 

Begin applying the make-up at the arch (middle) of the brow, working your way to the tail (outter eye). Not adding on any more product, finish it off by filling in the inner eye of the brows. To blend, brush your brows once more upwards.

Make-Up Artist Trick:

Follow every step, except the first one. Instead of waxing, use tweezers to pluck your eye-brows.

Primer – What is it, Exactly?

Primer isn’t designed to prevent or makeup from “sliding off”. Powder is designed to keep your makeup in place, hense the reason why makeup artists will set your makeup either with setting powder or with regular powder. There isn’t really much of a difference. It comes down to preference. So, what does primer do?  Once your makeup has been set, silicone based primer will prolong the makeup application. Silicone fills in the fine lines, minimizes your pores. It isn’t great for your skin, as it looses hydration, but excellent in other ways. Primer acts as a barrier wall to prevent your makeup application from touching your skin. The only thing that touches your skin is the primer. You don’t have to use primer, if you don’t want. I use it for prolonged application. Also, with it, my clients have noticed a huge difference. The makeup application looks brighter and makes the entire look, look radiant. 

Primer has come a long way since it first hit the markets back in the early 2000’s, when practically all of them were silicone based. Some people like primers, while other did not. They just didn’t like silicone. Now, with technology expanding, there are more options out there. There are primers that have built in skincare benefits like  Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil. This primer does all the things a primer is designed to do, PLUS it contains essential oils making it fantastic for dry skin. Click on the link to find out which essential oils are in this primer, and how amazing it is.

You then have a primer that is for anti-aging skin, acne prone skin, a primer designed for Dehydrated Skin, this primer is so for you LOVE: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water
