No One Needs Makeup

Everyone looks exactly as they are and there is nothing more authentic than that. Authentic makeup articulates the face. Makeup needs to be applied because of the face and not in spite of the face. Changing why we use makeup changes the expression and impression of makeup.

Symmetry of the face is perceived as balanced and trustworthy. Authentic makeup is the art of appearing more clearly to ourselves and others.

As humans we want to be heard. It is highly satisfying to clearly communicate our thoughts to others. If our species did not have sight, we would hear every word that anyone says. Because of vision, what we hear is censored and translated through what we see.

For better and worse, we visually consider the source of what we hear. As makeup is a powerful and persuasive visual tool, we are heard more clearly when we use makeup with grace.

Authentic makeup reduces the distractions and enhances the attractions. In doing so people see and hear us more clearly. If someone is distracted by your appearance then communication is compromised. 

If someone’s mascara is too thick or has flaked below their eye, we are distracted. If someone has one eyebrow higher than the other, we are distracted. We may not consciously think about what we are seeing however subconsciously we are also receiving that information and thus are distracted.

By reducing distractions, the subjectivity of the visual is taken out of the equation so that what is being said is heard.

No one looks wrong. Because symmetry and balance is proven to create trust, authentic makeup is an effective method to visually gain that trust.

Thank you for reading.

All-In-One Eye Shadow Brush

As with any craft, there are specific tools that refine that craft. Such is the case with eye makeup brushes. There are 3 eye shadow brushes I must have when doing makeup.

However owning a universal tool that can get the job done is a welcome friend. Thus the All-In-One Eye Shadow Brush.

Why it works is its ‘just right’ size and rounded shape. The flat side of the brush is small enough to work with any size eye and large enough to utilize the ‘Deposit” technique. The rounded tip is small enough to tuck into the crease of the eye for effective contouring application.

Dimensions:
Bristles : 00.39″ (01.00 cm)

Ferrule : 01.57″ (04.00 cm)

Handle : 05.03″ (12.80 cm)

Hello Summer. Hello BB CREAM

BB creams—otherwise known as Beauty Balm, Beauty Benefit, Blemish Base, Beblesh Balm, or Blemish Balm–are the crème de la crème of the cosmeceuticals (skin care + makeup) industry.

BB creams can be traced back to 1950s Germany, when Dr. Christine Schrammek created a salve to aid skin healing in post-peel and laser surgery patients, while also masking splotchy, inflamed redness and shielding sensitive skin from the sun. Fast forward 50+ years. BB creams exploded in popularity in Asia, Japan, and Europe–thanks to drop-dead gorgeous Korean actresses like Song Hye Kyo singing its praises.

The reason they’re so appealing is this: If you find yourself slathering on a ton of products on a daily basis, all-in-one BB creams could be your cosmetic savior, since they potentially save time, space, and most importantly—cold hard cash. It’s a brilliant concept that combines many complex steps in a woman’s typical skincare regimen.

Think of it this way—BB creams can do any or all of the following, depending on which one you choose: hydrate like a moisturizer; fight acne and aging like a specialized treatment; nourish like a serum; brighten like a toner; smooth skin texture like a primer; cover blemishes like a concealer; even out your skin tone like a sheer foundation; refine fine lines and wrinkles like an eye cream; add luminosity like a highlighter; and protect against UVA/UVB rays like a sunscreen.

In addition to being efficient at providing superficial covering and brightening, they can be quite beneficial to your skin as well. “BB cream isn’t just a tinted moisturizer, it’s first and foremost a skin treatment,” according to Cindy Lin, Director of Product Development and Beauty Solutions for Dr. Jart, a leading skincare brand in Korea. She said, “All have a host of skin nourishing ingredients—some have collagen-boosting peptides, some have detoxifying properties, and some deliver deep hydration.”

So how should you use it? Generally you should emulsify it in the palm of your hands and massage it into your skin in small circles. But for an extra radiant look, focus on applying it through the center of your face. The added tint provides the brightening benefit.

SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 21, 2019 — #1 best selling author and Makeup Gourmet creator Chris Scott’s latest book, How A Makeup Artist Becomes A Successful Business, is a revelation for all makeup artists seeking proven career direction. This book successfully translates and delivers 30+ years of business success into actionable instruction.

How A Makeup Artist Becomes A Successful Business addresses and exhausts every topic makeup artists have concerning their careers. There are even bonus chapters that go beyond career counseling into career wisdom.

How To Investigate A Look Update

 

Good makeup is good detective work.

 

Rather than be overwhelmed by your makeup options, allow the answers to each of the following 3 questions eliminate

what is not appropriate. What will remain are the best choices for each set of circumstances.

The first 3 questions I ask before starting any makeup application are:

1. Where are you going?
2. What are you wearing?
3. What time of day will you be there?

 

1. ‘Where are you going?’ dictates the makeup style.
  • Work
  • Drinks
  • Dinner
  • Shopping
  • Theater
  • Indoors
  • Outdoors
  • Etc.

What Are The Best Colors For Me? Pt 3: What Is My Best Look?


 

2. ‘What are you wearing?’ dictates the makeup colors.
  • Blue skirt and white top
  • Jeans and pink top
  • Black cocktail dress
  • Your favorite scarf
  • Jewelry (yellow metal, silver metal, copper metal, crystals, colorful stones)
  • Etc.

What Are The Best Colors For Me? Pt 1: Closet, Shoes, Jewelry


3. ‘What time of day will you be there?’ dictates the intensity of the look.
  • Daytime
  • Nighttime
  • Day to night

The other 3 questions/observations that are more constant are:

  • Skin tone intensity (light to dark)
  • Hair color, intensity (light to dark), and length.
  • Eye (iris) color and intensity (light to dark)

This is the given set of circumstances of your organic palette. It is advantageous to understand your organic palette as it relates to your intended makeup effect.

What Are The Best Colors For Me? Pt 2: Color Intensity


If you want to investigate a look update together here is some real incentive

Have an entirely new makeup look designed and applied.

Only $99 and you get $198 worth of service and products.

look update

Receive the entire $99 service cost towards purchasing products at time of service.

Any product purchase amount above $99 will be given an additional special %15 savings.

Bring 3, Get Yours Free–$$792 value for $297

If you want to make a party out of it, when you bring 3 people, your makeup application and $99’s worth of products are free.

Let’s get sleuthing.

Why I Love A Smoky Eye

• Easy to apply

• Easy to maintain

• Works with all eyes

• Ranges from natural to super-dramatic

A Smoky Eye Works On Everyone

A Smoky Eye translates to all eye shapes, sizes and ages.

Done properly, it is truly one of the easiest eye makeup looks to do that can really impress.

Whether your look is natural, dramatic, or somewhere in between, a smoky eye will look great on you.

 

SMOKY EYE MAKEUP DEFINED

Smoky is a technique, not a color.

Any combination of colors may constitute a smoky eye.

A Smoky Eye is a shadowy gradient, extending away from the eye line, dark to light.

Types of Smoky Eyes

 

High Contrast Smoky Eye

Smoky, however, does not necessarily mean dramatic (high contrast).

Smoky is a technique that may also be used with any variety of contrast and color.

 

Low Contrast Smoky Eye

 

Medium Contrast Smoky Eye

 

 

A Colorful Smoky Eye

As you can see, the Smoky Eye technique manifests itself with a wide variety of results, depending on the colors and intensities used.

What a Smoky Eye is not

A High Contour Eye is often referred to as a Smoky Eye, but it is not.

A High Contour Eye is an extension of a Classic Contour Eye and looks like this.

The crease color is blended up onto the outer brow bone and creates a heightened look to to the eye.

The ball of the eye still shows a lighter contrast intensity to the crease.

 

Here are 3 video tutorial versions of a Smoky Eye to better familiarize yourself with what is really a smoky eye.

 

Clean Smoky Eye

 

Dirty Smoky Eye
