Cosmetic Counter Survival Guide Highlight Reel

have the most pleasurable and successful makeup shopping experiences possible

 

When nationally representing Chanel, I had the opportunity to meet a wide range of clients.

Regardless of where I went, clients voiced nearly identical questions and concerns.

How to pick a foundation.  What are my colors?  Which brand is the best?  You get the idea.

 

Cosmetic Counter Survival Guide

 

As a service, I started writing a short informative brochure to give to my clients that identified how to spawn the most pleasurable and successful makeup shopping experiences possible.

It was not long before I realized that I was writing a guide, not a brochure.

Now in its 3rd edition, I revisited this work to see how well the information is holding up.

I was reminded how well my clients concerns guided me to articulate the advice in this guide.

Thank you awesome clients!

If you do not have it already, and want an even better experience when shopping for cosmetics, I suggest you read this short shopping advice guide. It is only 78 pages.

Here are some of the highlights from this guide.

Thank you for watching.

Values Behind Makeup Gourmet Cosmetics

We Choose What We Choose To Use

I don’t just sell makeup. I sell authenticity.

When deciding to commercially offer a brand of makeup, the brand needed to authentically represent me.

Cosmetics are personal products. Knowing the origin and impact of your cosmetic purchases is not always so personal.

We know that the end result of makeup is to look and feel better. That is a given.

What we don’t know is the impact we make by choosing the cosmetics we choose to use.

 

Here is the impact you make when choosing Makeup Gourmet Cosmetics.

Blue Makes Eyes White

Really !

Let’s make this quick and easy.

Blue eyeliner makes the whites of the eyes appear more white.

If your eyes appear fatigued with redness and/or a veil of yellow, this is one great tip you want to embrace.

 

 

I discovered years ago that navy blue eyeliner did remarkable things to the whites of the eyes.

Unless you already love blue eye makeup, most people are reluctant to consent when suggested blue eyeliner.

This is perhaps due to the occasional spirited application of blue.

 

I prefer navy blue because it is so dark that it doesn’t read blue,

and yet it does the trick of reducing the appearance of redness in the eyes.

If you have ever taken a makeup lesson with me, I probably suggested blue as one of your eyeliner colors.

By using my Lash Filler technique (see video below) of applying the liner you accomplish so many things at once.

• First and foremost you brighten the whites of the eyes.

• You also give your lashes the appearance of more fullness without mascara.

• By using my waterproof Navy Gel Eyeliner you do not experience any smudging throughout the day.

If you like to use bottom eyeliner then also use the Navy Gel Eyeliner either between your bottom lashes or on the wet line just above your bottom lashes.

Here is a video explaining the Lash Filler technique.

To inspire you I am featuring my Waterproof Navy Gel Eyeliner through the rest of February 2017.

Instead of their usual $18, they are $15

To not give my other Waterproof Gel Eyeliners, Black, Black-Brown, Eggplant and Steel Grey a complex, they will also be the same featured price.

I use a specific detail brush to apply this liner which I strongly suggest when using this gel eyeliner.

This brush is usually $12 and I will make it $10 to accompany your new Waterproof Gel Eyeliner.

Some things are just easy. This is one of them.

Happily enjoy your new brighter whiter eyes.

 

Reminder

I am featuring three of my most popular services as a Spring Service Specials.

These 3 featured services are at least 50% off each.

Extra Bonus

Spring Special Visiting Hours

Special Invitation To Visit With Incentive

Time to bloom.

A year ago I announced I was searching for a new studio space.

The business of changing locations put a hold on clients having full access to my services.

Then when I was ready for my new studio to take action last fall, I fell off my bike and broke an elbow and badly sprained both wrists. I was unable to work for most of November and December last year.

I have since mended and discovered that being out of the loop for a couple of months, on top of being in a new location, made me tricky to find.

I decided to do a Groupon to attract new faces to my my new location as well as extend a revisit from my current clientele.

I tell you this because I want to extend the same offer to you, only better.

I am featuring three of my most popular services. The bonus is if you purchase any of these spring service specials  from me instead of Groupon, you also receive bonus 15% discount on all product purchased at time of service

Three Featured Services:

How to Look Better in Pictures

Many of us wish we photographed better.

In an era where images are taken constantly, it is difficult to control the many instances our picture is taken.

Here are my 2 quick/best tips for photographing better.

 

The Turtle

This is a quick physical adjustment that tightens the jawline and opens our eyes.

All you do is extend your whole face forward 1-2 inches and then drop your chin 1/2 inch.

A common mistake is to extend only the chin forward 1-2 inches. This will give you an unwanted result.

Practice moving the entire plane of your face and not just your chin in the mirror. Once you get your muscles familiar with this, it becomes easy to replicate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also notice with the 2 women that one shoulder is closer to the camera than the other. This tends to reduce flatness and fullness in your image.

 

Powder the Heart

When possible, lightly powder the heart of your face.

2 changes happen when you isolate and neutralize shine in the heart of your face.

  1. You reduce a shine from distracting from your main features, eyes & lips.
  2. The area outside the heart reflects light better giving a healthy energized appearance.

As a reminder, the area between the lines on the images below is the heart of the face.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bonus Tip: How to make eyes smolder on camera.

We see this with celebrities all the time. There is an intensity to their gaze.

This is simple. Pretend you are trying to read the bottom line of a chart during an eye exam.

Your bottom eye line raises up as it strains to make out the eye chart bottom line.

This communicates as a smoldering intensity. Try it out. You will laugh but it works.

Famous eye exam culprits include Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and Tom Cruise.


 Translucent Powder Compact Special

In the spirit of looking our best, all shades of Translucent Compact Powder & Invisible Powder (no pigment/high oil control) are only $19 ( usually $24) now through February 14th.

Why not look your best on camera and off.

BOOK: Face with a Heart by Chris Scott

What does your face shape have to do with makeup?

While there are specific techniques to address personal concerns such as wide-set eyes or round cheeks etc, your overall face shape as it relates to makeup stays unchanged.

The goal with Authentic Beauty makeup is:  Reduce the Distractions & Enhance the Attractions.

Distractions are anything that catches our attention away from eyes and lips. Examples include redness in skin, darkness under eyes, blemishes etc.

Regardless of face shape, isolating our main attractions, eyes & lips, is key to being seen more clearly.

That is why the Face with a Heart concept is universal and holds true every time makeup is applied.

What is the ‘Heart of the Face?’

It is the area contained within the red lines above.
Think of eyebrows as the top arches of the heart.
The diagonal lines running along the outside corner of eyes and lips are the sides of the heart.
The base of the chin within these diagonal lines is the base of the heart.

Here are examples of face shapes and how the Face with a Heart translates from face to face.

 

Use this as a guideline as to where you apply and not apply makeup.

As best as possible, minimize/neutralize any distractions within the heart so eyes and lips stand clearly alone.

I always say to make the skin in the interior of the heart level 10 coverage, meaning the fullest coverage you want with your makeup.

Then coverage gradually lessens from 10 to 0 as it moves away from the exterior of the heart line outwards towards the hairline and jaw line. This is automatically achieved by smoothing foundation from the center of the face outwards.

To heighten and better frame the Heart of the Face, have contour and blush fall just outside the Heart Line. This dramatically isolates your eyes and lips while shaping the area of the face outside the heart line. I call it ‘where the face turns the corner’.

from Natural to Dramatic makeup, following this guideline will always make you noticed first.

What you want to hear is ‘You look great’, rather than ‘Your makeup looks great’.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To better implement the concept of Face with a Heart in your daily makeup application, treat yourself and others to the International Best Seller FACE WITH A HEART MASTERING AUTHENTIC BEAUTY MAKEUP.

When you order from Amazon, you also receive a Free e-book of this same title.

Most people apply makeup generally and they look generally good.

Some people apply their makeup specifically and they look specifically good.

They use the same makeup, only in a more specific way.

Learn the specifics and always look and feel specifically good.

BOOK: Face with a Heart by Chris Scott

Is The Heat On?

a simple solution to an ongoing problem.

infrakrasnoe_otoplenie_i_obogrevateli__novoe_v_sezonnom_obogreve_6

winter-skinWhen it is cold outside and the heat is on inside our skin gets continually
dehydrated.

Effects of dehydration include a tight feeling to the skin and sometimes even irritation, redness and flaking.

In these cold outside/heat-on inside conditions, moisturizer will last only so long.

Reapplying moisturizer is just not practical for most of us throughout the day.

 

One answer is misting the skin with water with a fine mist spray bottle. Evian spray is a popular choice.

The downside of a water mist is we only get a momentary hydration relief that quickly evaporates. In the evaporation, even more water is taken from our skin along with the water mist just applied.

What we need is a way to refresh and heal our skin that stays in our skin.

This Is where rosewater, cucumber and sodium hyaluronate become our dehydration friends.

Rosewater Cucumber Balancing Mist

a rosewaterIf you don’t already have this, now is a really good time. I discovered this triple action mist about two years ago and, in all the hoopla of launching Face with a Heart, it is one of those essential products that I neglected to share fully with you.

This is an incredible mist that works for you in so many ways it is truly to be experienced.

The Rosewater Cucumber Balancing Mist is positioned to be used when needed throughout the day whether you have makeup on or not.

As I reinvestigated all of its features and benefits, I fell in love with this product all over again.

Here’s why.

Rosewater is an antiseptic that calms irritated skin that can come from dehydration and is full of antioxidants which keeps the surface to skin alive and well.

Cucumber is also a powerful antioxidant with many claims to go along with it. Most importantly it contains vitamin B5 which is a humectant that helps your skin retain moisture the less hydration.

Other benefits of cucumber are vitamin A in the form of retinol that can help fight dark spots and freckles it also has silica which is a precursor to collagen that can help fight wrinkles and vitamin K which fight dark circles under the eyes.

Obviously cucumber kicks some serious skin care booty.

 

20160908112808799Sodium Hyaluronate

The one key ingredient that is not featured in the name of the product is sodium hyaluronate.

This is the third ingredient in the list of ingredients for this product so its presence is substantial.

Sodium hyaluronate is a water-soluble salt form of hyaluronic acid.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural cell in our body found mostly in our joints. Because of its ability to absorb and maintain up to a thousand times it’s weight in water, it is what helps keep our joints lubricated.

Sodium hyaluronate is a smaller molecule, which allows it to more easily penetrate the skin.

Sodium hyaluronate will attract and keep not only the water that’s in our skin in our skin, it will also attract water from the air and pull it into your skin. That is what a powerful humectant does.

Way awesome ingredient.

How to use

The beauty is you just mist it on your skin whenever you want.

A subtle relaxing yet invigorating scent of rosewater is what envelopes you and immediately gives you a sensoral peace of mind.

Then the rest of the ingredients get to work. You can mist your skin throughout the day as often as you like.

This mist is positioned to also be a way to set your makeup. I am a big fan of using translucent powder to physically set your makeup. For some even the thinnest layer of powder on your skin feels drying or at least visually appears drying.

By using this mist, the thin layer of surface powder is slightly dissolved and the skin becomes more translucent and light is better reflected from the moisture in your skin. Sounds good to me.

Get it while it’s hot (cold)!

So what the heck, the product is only $15 and until the end of January I am making it available for $12.

Although this mist is highly effective throughout the year, using it now when the heat is on is an added bonus.

I hope you enjoy this product as much as I do!

Rosewater Cucumber Balancing Mista rosewater

A refreshing mist with natural extracts that soothe and soften the skin. Instantly rehydrates and refreshes all skin types and aids in restoring tone and elasticity as well as setting makeup. Paraben free, sulfate free, gluten free. Made in USA.

Rosewater

  • Helps soothe and cool sensitive and irritated skin.
  • Balances oily skin.
  • Rejuvenates, softens and tones mature skin.
  • Filled with anti-oxidants and various vitamins to help prevent the signs of aging and nourish the skin.
  • Natural antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

Cucumber

Cucumbers are a source of several compounds that fight inflammation and aging.

  • Contains vitamin C, an antioxidant and plenty of vitamin K, also an antioxidant, which fights dark circles under the eyes.
  • Pantothenic acid, or vitamin B-5, helps your skin retain moisture (humectant).
  • Vitamin A, or retinol, in cucumbers fights dark spots and freckles because it helps control your skin’s production of melanin.
  • Cucumbers are a source of silica, which, as a precursor to collagen, can help fight wrinkles.

Sodium Hyaluronate
A powerful humectant that attracts and holds on to water, making it the ultimate skin moisturizer. This helps to hydrate skin and keep it moist and supple by binding up to 1000 times its weight in water.

Because it attracts and binds to water, it causes slight swelling. This swelling helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and gives skin a more youthful appearance. The added water reflects light better to physically make skin look younger.
