Joe Blasco Makeup

Since I started my makeup career Joe Blasco was were I started. I studied editorial, runway makeup application. There products are very good but you really need to use them in the proper way. This product is really theatrical makeup, but can be used for everyday and also evening looks. Setting the product is also very important when using this brand, very important. And using to much in your applications will give you a pancake type look. The product is to be used sparingly. Especially with the foundations.

In this photo-shoot I used Chianti Lip Pencil as the full coverage for the lips. The pencil can be used as a liner or for full coverage. It is a very moist liner and locking in the product is also very important. I like to use a translucent powder for this purpose. The colors are very, very vivid. So if you do not lock in the product it will move.

The makeup line is very good to use. You can find the Joe Blasco store and place your orders. Some of the products are dated such as the 1980’s to now so choose wisely. Joe Blasco lip pencils are available in a soft formula’s or theatrical. Which can be used for either full lip coloring or lip lining. The cost of this pencil was $20.00. Also remember when the product is set it will hold well and not move.

Redken Hair Color Change For Fall

This Model was prepared for her Photo-Shoot this week and requested a deeper color all over. I also suggested that it would be a good idea since the hair was dry and brittle from constant overlapping and flat ironing.  When ever you use a curling iron or flat iron. Always prep the hair with a styling lotion and dry all of the hair thoroughly. Section your hair and curl or straighten it and use a dry hair spray on each section to protect it.  Don’t use any products with moisture in it.

A level 4.3 and 6.4 was mixed for the new-growth and also the same formula for the mid shaft and ends of the hair. With varying developer strengths. Shea Moisture Cosmetics was used to wash and condition the hair. And for styling the hair. Excellent product to work with. There was no color gloss’s added to the hair of the completion of the permanent hair color service.  Mac Makeup was used for her Photo-Shoot.  The Photo-Shoot was held on Melbourne Beach Florida.
