Winter Makeup Trends

Posted on: December 9th, 2020

We all know that this year has been a year like no other. Most people are at home more often and many are not wearing a lot of makeup. When people are home, they tend to wear more comfortable clothing, spend less time on their hair and when they do venture out, they may not be thinking about wearing makeup since half of their face will need to be covered with a face mask.

However, the holiday season is upon us and this is a great time to break out of your habits and spend a little more time on yourself. You can rediscover your joy of makeup this winter by using these makeup tips from celebrity makeup artists.

Even though life looks different right now and our full face might not always be visible, our eyes are always a feature that you can apply makeup to. A cat eye is a big trend right now since it brings the drama. You can go for a more subtle cat eye or you can be more dramatic. You can also enhance the look by adding shimmer or glitter and you can also play around with color.

Going along with your eyes, your eyebrows are another area that you can get creative with. Fluffy, natural-looking eyebrows are trending right now. You can get this look by using shaping wax or gel and brushing your eyebrows in an upward motion. If you have some areas that look a little bare, you can use a brow pen to fill it in.

Incorporating more color into your eyes is another big trend right now and you can add drama to either your eyes or your lips, or both! You can experiment and play around with color and decide if you prefer a more monochromatic look, or you can choose either your eyes or your lips to take on bolder color.

Lived-in liner is another popular trend right now and is currently a makeup style being used by Lady Gaga. The lived-in liner look is a smudged, smokey look that you can get by using a soft eyeliner pencil. You can use a gel pencil or a gel crayon eyeliner and once you line your eyes with it, you can take a smudging brush to get the final shape you are looking for.

Although the holidays may look different this year, that does not mean that you have to give up the glam. There are creative ways you can celebrate with your loved ones and still express your individuality with your makeup.

Transition Your Skin From Summer To Fall

Posted on: August 14th, 2016

fall skinAs the summer months are quickly coming to a close, transitioning your skin from summer to fall is crucial in keeping your skin looking and feeling its best! A change in season can drastically change how the skin behaves. When it turns cooler in temperature, less oil is produced by the skin creating a change in your skincare routine. Below are some tips on how to transition your skin from summer to fall.

  • Change your cleansing routine. Choosing a cleanser that is more mild yet offers incredible hydration is the best choice for fall. A good rule is to choose a cleanser that is non-drying and sulfate-free.
  • Choose a heavier day time moisturizer. During the summer months using a light daytime moisturizer is ok because the skin produces more oil. When it is cooler outside, our skin tends to dry out. Choosing a heavier day time moisturizer will help prevent moisture loss.
  • Continue using SPF. During the fall months the UVA rays (the ones that cause skin cancer and premature wrinkles) are just as strong. Choosing a moisturizer that has an SPF is key to help protect your skin!
  • Exfoliate. To brighten and repair the skin during the fall months, exfoliation is imperative. This removes dead skin cells that trap oil. In return, exfoliating helps with acne and the overall appearance of skin.
  • Return to Retinol. Use a serum retinol or retinol moisturizer in your skincare routine. This helps reduce the appearance of brown spots and wrinkles caused by the summer sun.
  • Use an alcohol free toner. This step is usually overlooked when it comes to a skincare routine. After cleansing, use a toner to wipe the skin clean and immediately follow with a serum and moisturizer. This will help keep the skin moisturized and well cleansed!
