Overdone Glamour vs. Undone Glamour

September 4th, 2013

In keeping up with the fashion for the season for all sexes including makeup, hair, and glasses I came upon the look of the lips.  Will I try it?  Absolutely but I’ll try before leaving my home or knowing will be seated in a dark restaurant.  Would I recommend to my women clients?  I would suggest the same, try it at home first.  Lip trends are fun because they are minute changes, while others are significant such as dyeing your hair from black to platinum blonde.  The new 2013 fall lip trends:

1.   Matte Lips….How?   Apply lip color, place a tissue over the lips, and take a brush dipped into translucent powder and run over the lips.  Voila!

2.  Undone Lips….How?   Apply one or more of your berry shades of lipstick with your finger onto the center of your lips then buff the lipstick to the corners with a moist towelette.


“Hairs” To You!

Ever wonder why your makeup may not look great or you look too pale or too old?  Consider your hair color and what brings out your eyes and best skin tone.   Dark hair may cover your gray, but can make you look years older while you think blond makes you look younger it can make you look pale and sick.  It takes a knowledgeable hair color analyst to know it’s more than just a color you want, but rather what can work with your skin tone and features to make you glow.  This is when you need to call in a makeup professional who puts the best foundation, blush and eye color on your face.

Guest Blogger Natalie Gauci “5 Hottest Make-up Trends for Spring”

April 6th, 2011

Don’t leave your look behind; your makeup should change with the seasons too!

1. CHEEKS are back! Bold Vibrant flushed – Coral or Pink depending on your skin tone – Apply to the apple of your cheek while smiling! Blend with a powder brush.

2. “ELECTRIC” EYES! Yes they’re back! Don’t be afraid if this is too extreme for your personality. Just a “dab” of a bright turquoise or purple on the lid of your eye will create a “pop” and change for your spring look.

3. BRONZER. Add a “sun kissed” look to your entire face with a bronzing powder. Bronzing powders are great as we go into summer . . . A little goes a long way! A fan brush is used to apply.

4. VIOLET IS HOT! – Yes, purple eye shadow.

5. SEXY SMOKEY EYE. – For a night out create drama with sexy metallic grays and navy. Pair with a neutral lip so your eyes are the focus!
