Introducing: Cut Crease Eye Contour Brush. Free Zoom Lesson W/Purchase


It  is always exciting to teach a makeup artist a new trick.

I just learned one and it is thanks to this brush.


Truth be told I have known about this brush for a long time.

As an instructor of makeup, I reserved its use for only professional training and use.

I thought its usage to be overwhelming when I teach makeup to the non-professional.


Wrong.


I recently started showing and teaching with the Cut Crease Brush.

To my amazement, everyone took to it immediately.

In many cases people found it easier and more practical than the traditional Eye Contour Brush.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 318ced155018318c5ca4d77519dd302a.jpg

Perfect example of both a cut crease contour and wedge eye liner.


Advantages of a Cut Crease Brush:

Opens any eye to make it appear larger.

Ideal for Deep-Set eyes.

Delivers a more crisp and clean eye contour effect.

Apparently easy-to-use.


Want to learn how to use this brush?


Purchase this Brush ($12) and receive a

Complimentary Zoom Cut Crease Brush appointment.


We will meet via Zoom.

I will teach you how to use this brush for free!

Your free Zoom lesson appointment applies to all Cut Crease Brush purchases made in May 2020.


Your free lesson may be redeemed any time in the future.


I am offering free 30 minute Zoom makeup consultations.
Sign-up for one to get your questions answered immediately and personally.


I am happy to help you with your Zoom face.

My 1 hour online Zoom makeup lesson appointments are over 50% off during Shelter In Place.

Usually $99, one hour is now $49

The 2 hour lesson is $69, usually $149.

You may purchase the appointment now and use any time. This means either during Shelter In Place or after.

Fine Tune Your Zoom

Since my last post, 10 Tips For Your Best Zoom Face, the demand for fine tuning Zoom has skyrocketed.

In light of this demand I am offering your personal Fine Tune Your Zoom Appointments. For in-depth info– CLICK HERE

These are 30 minute Zoom appointments where you show me your Zoom set-up and we maximize how you appear on Zoom.

The appointments are $50 and available to Book Now.

Since meeting via Zoom is unfortunately going to stick around for a while, take 30 minutes to Fine Tune Your Zoom.

Get Your Appointment by Clicking Here.


Below is my last post to get you prepared for your Fine Tune Your Zoom Appointment.


10 Tips For Your Best Zoom Face (Only 1 Tip Is Makeup)

Since many of us are using Zoom (or any video conference equivalent) more these days, these tips will help share the best you.


1- Eye Level

Get the camera of your device eye level or slightly higher than eye level.

This eliminates the focus on your chin and neck area and instead draws easier focus to your eyes.



2- Use Front Light

This means light directly facing you.

If Zooming during the day, sit facing a window. Avoid direct sunlight on your face. 

With video. The more light the better so light it up.

Light to avoid is overhead, side, and backlight.

Over head light casts shadows downward on your face and may create a drawn and fatigued appearance.

Side light (unless balanced with equal light on both sides) creates a light/dark moody appearance to your face.

Common example is there is a window to the side of you. That light will draw a shadow across the side of your face furthest from the window and split how others see you.



Back light creates a darkened silhouette of your appearance. The thing we see least is you.



3Angle Your Chair

By turning your knees 45 degrees away from the camera, your head will naturally turn towards the shoulder opposite from where your knees are facing.

This will give a light angle to your face to the camera and cut a more flattering video image.



4- Virtual Social Distance



Think of it as virtual social distance. Unless you need to have your face close to the camera, stay back 3 feet from the camera. It is distracting when anyone’s face is pushed up to the camera.



5- Head Height

Position your camera so the top of your head just touches or is slightly below the top frame of your video image.

On camera, any space above your head is superfluous and takes away from others seeing just you.



6- Postures

Good posture reads immensely on camera. If your chair promotes a more slumped posture, put a pillow between your lower back and the chair to prop you up.



There is also the psychology of your posture. The person who is sitting up appears more active in the conversation. It reads authoritative, alert  and ‘reporting to duty’.

The person who leans back into the chair with one arm laying on the table appears calm, confident, and not a threat. Their posture is still good and they appear relaxed.


7- Accesories

While jewelry is flattering, don’t let it get the attention. Posts or small, non-dangly earrings are best.

Longer dangling jewelry is distracting and can look mysterious on others monitors. Earrings can either mirror ball light or temporarily visually disappear from the viewer on their monitor. All of this accessory activity can be a big distraction.

Necklaces, unless blinking or super big, tend to not get in the way of people seeing you.


8- Your Good Side

Some may already know what side they like best and are encouraged to use it on camera.


If you are not sure you have a good side, let’s make one.

Foreheads can be distracting on camera. Their curved shape and placement make foreheads supreme light reflectors. Here are ways around that.

If your hair can cover your forehead then use it. 

Hair creates a border above the eyes so others see your eyes better as they are framed.


If you have bangs, let them cover as much forehead as possible. If your hair is longer, sweep hair sideways across your forehead and turn the sweeping hair towards the camera.

If your hair is parted on the side, make sure the part is away from the camera.

And don’t forget good ole’ translucent or HD powder to control shine. More on that in a minute.


9- Clothing


Try to wear solid color instead of prints. Designate a light jacket or sweater as your Zoom shell to wear when on camera. Any color is fine. Avoid solid white or black on camera. Color is more interesting and flattering.

It is easy to see here how solids versus patterns makes a difference.


10- Makeup (finally).

My mantra for makeup is ‘Reduce the Distractions, Enhance the Attractions’.

Makeup shows people where to look and where not to look.

This mantra applies directly to the advice for all the aspects of video conferencing. It also applies to your makeup as well.

Good news- Most of us do not have an HD camera built into our device we use for a video conference. This means that a little too much concealer or powder (examples) will not read as a distraction on camera.

Here is what matters: Eyes & Lips.

Help people see and hear you better.

Focus Points For On Camera Makeup

Links are provided for video tutorials and product suggestion.

Eyes

Well groomed and shaped brows.



A clean eye lid. This means using corrector to neutralize natural fatigue looking darkness on the eye lid.



Clean and precise eyeliner for both top and bottom eye line.



A clean mascara look.




Skin

Darkness and puffiness/hollowness under the eyes neutalized with correctors.



A lightweight foundation or powder.



Mattify with powder the Heart of your face.




Lips

Stain the lips with color (lip pencils work great) to create color separation from your lips so your lips stand apart from your face.


If using gloss, only on center pillow of the lips, not all the lip.




Contour/Blush

As cameras tend to flatten our appearance, contour and blush are immensely helpful.

The following is a repeat of my last post concerning Coronavirus, Makeup, and You.

If you have not yet been given a flu shot please get one. buy a portable hand sanitizer and use it often. Wash your hands with antibacterial soap for the time it takes to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ often.

This may sound crazy however the more you reduce the need to be near a lot of other people the better.

Prevention is key.

Having worked in retail cosmetics for many years, sterilization and vigilant cleanliness was mandatory for a safe shopping environment.

Any cosmetic store or cosmetic department is a breeding ground for germs, bacteria and disease. Everyone touches everything. Testers are applied to lips and eyes where viruses are easily spread.

Though the advice I am offering needs to be applied to every aspect of our behavior during this pandemic, I will offer advice about shopping for cosmetics.

Now is not the time to sit down for a makeover in a public store. 

Now is not the time to let someone in a public setting touch your face. 

Now is not the time to use cosmetic testers that are within reach of the general public.

The advice being given from the Center of Disease Control (CDC) is to minimize time spent in public places.

The CDC advises:

  • Getting a backup canned/non-perishable food supply.
  • Getting backup drugstore type products supply.
  • Backing up your water supply at home.
  • Wearing a nose and mouth mask when in public.

The key here is prevention. This is not paranoia, this is common sense.

Reduce every possible risk of exposure in your daily life until this pandemic is under control.

For myself, I will be ordering necessities online as much as possible and having them delivered. 

Getting back to makeup. My studio is a safe place. It is not at all open to the general public and I take great precaution with each client I work with, washing my hands often during each interaction. 

So please, prevent yourself from contracting the Coronavirus. Widen your circle of defense so that you and yours are insulated from potential exposure.

Thank you for taking a moment to allow me to share my concern. 

Warmly,
Chris Scott

Coronavirus, makeup, and you.

Unfortunately the coronavirus exists and it is here. Our only line of defense is to prevent coming in contact with the virus.

If you have not yet been given a flu shot please get one. buy a portable hand sanitizer and use it often. Wash your hands with antibacterial soap for the time it takes to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ often.

This may sound crazy however the more you reduce the need to be near a lot of other people the better.

Prevention is key.

Having worked in retail cosmetics for many years, sterilization and vigilant cleanliness was mandatory for a safe shopping environment.

Superfood Smoothie For Your Face

I usually do not go crazy about makeup products. I have my favorites, that is what I use, and make available to my clients.

In fact, when other makeup artists go on and on about how much they love a product, I begin to roll my eyes a little bit because, really, how good can a product be?

Please get ready to roll your eyes at me. Last June I introduced my new BB cream, a Tinted Moisturizer loaded with extras such as Broad Spectrum SPF 30, antioxidants, pomegranate and white tea extracts Etc.

This yummy lightweight skin enhancer is a dream come true.  As an advocate for the positive effects of makeup, this tinted moisturizer is exceeding all of my expectations.

I equate it to a superfood smoothie which is so packed with goodness that every time you drink it, you feel better.  It is a superfood smoothie for your face.

Although simplicity is one of its many advantages, this Tinted Moisturizing BB Cream is a revelation in the appearance and health of your skin.

Please, do yourself favor and try a tube.

As encouragement, I am taking 25% off to cover the minimum S/H fee.
