1) Dior Diorshow Mascara Black : The original, award-winning Dior mascara that has been a backstage cult-favorite for 10 years. This mascara delivers perfectly plush, everyday glam lashes with an innovative XXL brush for maximum show-stopping volume. Its creamy, buildable, customizable formula allows you to achieve the same dramatic lash volume that can be seen on the Dior runway for a glamorous, false lash effect.
Redheads rule the world!! Jessica Chastain has just been named the new face of the new Yves Saint Laurent fragrance Manifesto!
In a press quote: “Yves Saint Laurent is a brand that inspires me deeply,” the The Help star said to WWD. “Since its creation, the brand has conveyed strong values that I cherish, such as an unwavering commitment, absolute love and feminine audacity. This new fragrance is an emblem of it all.
This years MTV Movie Awards went by without any fuss (where was all the excitement from previous years!?), but the one actress that always catches my eye is the radiant and hillarious Emma Stone. She is my new favorite. Not only was her acceptance speach endearing, but she looked like a modern Grace Kelly. Just adore her!
This weekend I will be attending The Makeup Show LA and surrounding myself with the newest product launches, education, and catching up with my fellow artists. I have been involved with The Makeup Show for three years now, and look forward to meeting up with some of my friends, and other inspirational artists that I admire.
Today, I am taking a ride down memory lane. Two years ago when I was online editor for ForTheLoveOfMakeup.com I was able to interview some of my favorite artists and friends. Below, are my top three. I hope you enjoy and are inspired….and if you see me this weekend, please say hello!!
My good friend, and highly talented makeup artist Angela Peralta was kind enough to share her makeup secrets for Torrey Devitto's Oscar night look. LOVE the lips. Enjoy!
Torrey Devitto's ( Pretty little liars, The Vampire Diaries) red carpet look
1. I prepped the skin with Guerlain Super Aqua serum and Guerlain Orchidee eye + lip cream. I love the Orchidee eye and lip cream because it's paraben and fragrance free and can go directly on the lip and directly on the eye lid.
The one thing I have learned as an artist in the beauty industry is that when you hear product buzz, you pay attention. And the buzz surrounding Glamcor has been deafening.
This modern new product line is just what makeup artists have been begging for. From a portable LED lighting kit to makeup bag trolly system, Glamcor has answered the call for functional, professional, and innovative artist accessories.
I was able to speak with co-founder and VP of buisiness development Shana King and find out more about the brand and it’s products.
Shana and her partner Eric Kaiser wanted to create a line that projected affordable luxury for working makeup artists. Their goal was to dissect what was happening to artists in the workplace and finely tune their products to meet the diverse needs of packing and working on set, HD lighting, and travel.
All products can be purchased separately or as a system.
The products are constantly devolping solely based on artists needs, and the industry's demands and ever changing formats.
Some of the most popular items (and products that this professional uses herself!) are the following:
LED color balance lighting kit:
This is my favorite invention so far! Not only does it take away the frustration of finding the perfect light for makeup application, but it also makes creating a HD perfect look easy. You are guarenteed that your makeup will look good against the harsh lights of HD camera, without having to worry about application problems due to poor lighting. At under 5 pounds, this is a must for your kit!
This is the ultimate in lightweight and portable specifically designed for makeup applications. The LED lamps do not require a "cool down" period. Once you are finished you can pack it and go!
