Makeup Gourmet

Pride Month Is Here

Pride Celebrates the dynamic human condition in all its past, current and future manifestations.

At Makeup Gourmet,  we celebrate the positive in everyone.

Makeup Gourmet has been offering unbiased makeup services since 2003.


When SF mayor Gavin Newsom first opened the doors for same-sex marriage, Makeup Gourmet responded.

Free Makeup At Gay Weddings
If you’re in a hurry to your same-sex nuptials and don’t have time to get pretty, San Francisco’s own Makeup Gourmet — aka Chris Scott — will be camped outside City Hall on June 23, brushes in hand, to offer free make-up service. See, not everybody is out to make a buck on the gay wedding boom expected here.



Why is he doing it? Because The Gourmet wants to contribute something in his small way to the good of the cause. Give back. Didn’t your English teacher always say write what you know? In this case, it’s blush what you know.
The Gourmet is looking for some celebrity face to powder, too. He’s emailed Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi, offering to paint them pretty, too, but no luck yet for the newly engaged celebs. Maybe George Takei or some of the other Trekkie has-beens will need a touch-up.

In Makeup Gourmet’s own small way, we have helped members of the LGBTQ+ community feel more like themselves.

To that end, we are celebrating by knocking 50% off all our M2F makeup applications and lessons during Pride month 2024.
Extended thru July 14

Purchases valid now and after Pride month.

MALE TO FEMALE TRANSFORMATION MAKEUP APPLICATION: was $150, NOW $75

MALE TO FEMALE TRANSFORMATION HANDS-ON MAKEUP LESSONS was $200, NOW $100


Pride month’s calendar is already brimming with events. Hopefully you have time to treat yourself.

Here is a good place for what is happening this month. https://sf.funcheap.com/category/event/event-types/holidays/pride-holidays/


My Pride sentiment is to celebrate who you are, and let others celebrate who they are. 

Seems simple and fair that as humans we do our best, and not hurt anyone or anything in the process.

Warmly,
Chris Scott

Top 3 Winter Skin Solutions

The appearance of healthy skin is only skin deep.

Our top layer of skin, which is an ingenious evolutionary system of constantly replicating fresh new skin cells to replace dead and shedding skin cells, is where the appearance of healthy skin lies.

During the winter, colder temperatures and indoor heating suck the water out of our top layer of skin, making the appearance of our skin less healthy.

The trick is to keep water from evaporating out of the top layer of skin.

Here are 3 solutions to do just that.

Solution #1: Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid are cells that absorb up to 1,000 times their weight and size in water. They exist mostly in the joints of our body to keep joints lubricated and moist.

A topical layer of hyaluronic acid applied to our skin before moisturizer will keep the water already in our skin and retain water from your moisturizer. This is a brilliant concept for healthy looking skin.

AGE DEFYING SERUM $30

Enriched w/ Sodium Hyaluronate, Collagen and Retinoids, this emollient serum hydrates the skin leaving it soft and supple, while Anti-oxidants and soy proteins help protect against environmental damage.
Size: .5 fl. oz. (15 g)

Cruelty free | Paraben free | Sulfate free | Gluten free
Recommended for: All skin types.
Made in USA

Solution #2: Exfoliation

Winter kills off surface skin cells faster. A surface of dead skin cells leaves the skin appearing ashy.

To avoid this, gently exfoliate weekly to remove the surface dead skin cells and reveal the fresh and healthy looking ones underneath. Exfoliation, merely by the fact that it speeds up the shedding of dead skin cells, encourages skin to produce more healthy fresh skin cells which increase the appearance of healthy skin.

MICRO EXFOLIATING SCRUB $20

Gives skin a professional, spa-like exfoliating facial. Contains microdermabrasion scrub that safely and efficiently removes dead skin cells leaving a silky smooth texture that is ready to welcome rejuvenating new skin cells.
Size: 3.0 fl. oz. (85 ml)

Cruelty free | Paraben free | Sulfate free | Gluten free
Recommended for: All skin types.
Made in USA

Solution #3: Mist ++

A simple spritz of water will refresh the appearance of surface dry skin. Unfortunately as it evaporates it takes moisture in your skin with it, making skin even drier than before.

A mist++ packed with humectants (moisture seeking natural extracts) not only refreshes skin, it attracts and holds onto moisture. This keeps surface skin more hydrated, can be used anytime, even over makeup, and promotes an essential oil sense of wellbeing.

ROSEWATER CUCUMBER BALANCING MIST $18

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. Use throughout the day as needed.
Size: 4 fl. oz. (118 ml)

Cruelty free | Paraben free | Sulfate free | Gluten free
Recommended for: All skin types
Made in USA

Yesterday, I Mean 3 Years Ago…

Our collective consciousness is experiencing amnesia. Where did the last 3 years go? Wherever they went, happy they are gone.

The time for ‘Us’ time is here. Time to reinvest in ourselves. Time to move forward without blaming the past.

With Thanksgiving only 3 weeks away, let’s lean into the future.

Let’s be kind to ourselves and others.

Let us be grateful for what we have, and hopeful for tomorrow.

At this point, I’d usually have some call to action to complement this message.

Not this time.

This time, everyone needs to feel healthy minded. Whatever that is for you, I hope you’re doing it right now.

When skin and beauty care is what you need!

How To Pick The Right Lip Color

The long forgotten part of our facial anatomy re-emerges. With lips once again naked and exposed, and your old lip color having seen better days/years, here is a tried and true method for getting the right lip color.

Let the color pick you.

Here’s how:

  • Before putting any color on your lips, put colors you are attracted to on your fingertips.
  • Next hold your finger over your lips while looking into a mirror.
  • You will have an instant visceral response to whether this color likes you or not.

Other tests:

  • Hold your colored fingertips over the clothing you are wearing.
  • See if they like each other.
  • Some colors make other colors look more vibrant, and some just seem off. 
  • Trust your visceral judgment and go with what makes you smile.

Now we get to see each other smile again.

Chris Scott

January is the slowest month of the year

January is the ski lift of months. You sit down and calmly wait while the lift takes you to the top of the mountain. I love January. The calm. The cool.

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.
