Nick Barose, once again shares his magic with us! Recently, he glammed up the gorgeous Sarah Shahi, from the show Fairly Legal. The look was from premiere in NYC for her new film Bullet to the Head with Stallone.
” We went with mauvy, cool tone pinks on eyes and lips instead of the usual fresh girly pinks because we wanted a more sophisticated sexy look of cool pinks as opposed to girly, fresh faced which regular bright pink make up would create”
GET THE LOOK:
Look for icy pink with a hint of blue, cool tones in it so you can wear pink and look more grown up as opposed to overly sweet and girly.

I have a love/hate relationship with compact face and eye palettes. I love the thought of them, but most of the time I only like and use one or two colors and the rest is a waste of space. I also can’t stand the little tins of lip gloss that get all over everything, and make the compact a mess. See!! Love/hate at it’s best.
But, recently I was able to try out Senna Cosmetics Get A Nude Attitude Face Palettes. I received the Warm Sultry Palette and instantly fell in love! Not only were the colors super wearable, but there wasn’t a needless color in the bunch. All six colors were neutral, and blended together to create oodles of options.
Kelly Clarkson is one of my favorite singers. It seems that every album she has put out has resonated with me on some level. Not only does her voice give me goosebumps, but her lyrics are feisty and real. I heart her. Lets be honest, I was that gal screaming and singing my lungs off at her concert last year. I am not ashamed to admit this either!
The look I created above was inspired by her latest song and video, “Catching My Breath”.
Use the Beauty Blender to apply Urban Decay Naked Foundation.
This combination gives an airbrushed finish, and leaves the skin illuminated.
Finish with a neutral,matte peach blush such as MAC PinchO’Peach.
I have always been fascinated with mixing my own colors. One of my favorite things to do as a makeup artist is to create a color by mixing different mediums. There are so many fantastic pigments, glimmers, creams and paints that you can make any color you desire. Makeup companies have really responded to the makeup artists cries for new and inventive products that will let our creativity explode!
One of the best companies out there for makeup artists is Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. They embrace the philosophy that makeup has no boundaries, and should inspire you to think outside the box. Their products are vegan, and the quality is stellar. They are called Obsessive Compulsive because you can never get enough!
NARS Blush sets
I am no prude, but at this moment I am giggling like a schoolgirl because I cannot bring myself to title my blog “Deep Throat and Striptease!”. Maybe it’s just been a long day, but I think it’s hysterical that NARS cosmetics somehow always managed to create the most racy and inappropriate names for their makeup. This is the company that is famous for their blush called Orgasm. Need I say more?
I was on set today, and decided to do a natural “beachy, healthy, glow” look on the model we were shooting. So, the first thing I did was go to my never fail combo of Nars Orasgm (yes, that’s really the name) lip gloss and Blush/Bronzer duo. This is the easiest way to fake that “i just got back from my honeymoon in Bora Bora” look. This palate is favored by celebrities, and has been voted Best of Sephora 2 years in a row. The pinky peach blush and gloss look good on just about everyone, and have just the right amount of shimmer without being overbearing. The Bronzer Laguna that comes in the palate is light enough for the fairest of skins, but can be deepened very easily with extra applications. Seriously ladies, if you are searching for a quick pretty look for summer, you need to look no further!
