Too Faced Cosmetics Foundation Is A Thumbs Up!

Having consistency when doing makeup for models to use for outdoor photography must be on the money. Or you will see discoloration around the jaw line and chest area.  On this model Bryanna Quintero she prefers Too Faced foundation, “Born This Way”.  The product is a liquid and is easy to apply to the face and drys quickly. I like to use a feathered brush to get all the creases and fissures sealed with the foundation.  I feel if you are using a sponge it will soak up too much of the makeup, so I prefer a brush. The product is not smeary or cakey to work with during the application. Lovely product to use.

When I was done with the application, I sealed with Mac Pro-Sealer.  The product did not move the whole time during the photo-shoot. Nor did it dissipate. This oil-free foundation masterfully diffuses the line between makeup and skin for the perfect naturally flawless finish and coverage so undetectable, they’ll think you were Born This Way!

Highly recommend this product.

  • Medium-to-full undetectable coverage
  • Oil-free
  • Hydrating
  • Long-wearing for 12 hours
  • Photo friendly/No flashback
  • Non-comedogenic
  • Coconut water to aid in delicately replenishing skin’s moisture levels
  • Alpine Rose to help empower skin’s health and resilience
  • Hyaluronic filling spheres for a smoother, more youthful appearance

Holy Grail Of Makeup Setting Spray!

This product is the bomb. It sets the makeup and will not move for me the whole time I am doing a photo-Shoot.  This is a given for the title of the best setting spray out there in the makeup industry. Crease Resistant, Long-wearing, Moisturizing, Natural Looking, Smells great!  Makes your make up look natural and leaves a dewy look on your face. Excellent product to use for weddings, photo-shoots, special engagements.

A lightweight mist of water packed with vitamins and minerals, infused with a blend of green tea, chamomile and cucumber to gently soothe and refresh the skin. Gives an instant boost of hydration while delivering a soft sheen to refresh and finish makeup. This holy grail of hydrating mists can be used with other products in near-endless ways – to improve the wear of makeup, or moisturize and soothe tired skin. A delicious twist in a permanent romantic rose scent, calming lavender scent, or creamy coconut scent.

 

  • Hold bottle 12 inches away from face and spray evenly.
  • Use alone or to finish makeup.
  • For face products, apply your favorite powder foundation and lightly mist all over face to set and hydrate.
  • For color products, apply your favorite eye shadow or pigment to your preferred brush, lightly mist bristles and sweep across lids for an intensified shadow look

Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Why You Need To Clean Your Makeup Brushes NOW!

Makeup is designed to bind with your skin and if you’re not washing your brushes every day, you’re only allowing layer after  layer of makeup to glue to your bristles. Keep them clean. If not and you’re slathering it all over your face and not getting the true color you want to apply that day. And also if you do not clean then you will clog your pores.

Ever wondered why your skin always looks dry and dull and never dewy? Dirty makeup tools only mean dirty, splotchy, spotty, muddy makeup applications.

Ever wake up and wonder why your skin looks puffy and bloated? Again, another reason why you should grab your makeup brushes STAT and clean them. I like using baby shampoo and warm water. Apply some shampoo to your warm water and work the makeup out using downward strokes when cleaning blush, contour and foundation brushes. Towel dry and spray some alcohol on the brushes to sanitize them.

This will give you a truly clean makeup application and a lovely scent to your brushes. Also you brushes will be very soft also.  Most women are spending a significant amount on cosmetic brushes in order to achieve desired makeup looks, but they’re not protecting their investment or their skin by properly caring for these tools. Allowing dirt and oils to build up on your brushes only shortens their lifespan. And cause you to have infections especially lip brushes.

Great Formula For Blow Drying And Glamour Sets

Joseph Kellner

 

Every Friday in the salon after 3:00 in the afternoon, I have a promotion called, “Bring Your Black Dress And I Will Do The Rest:. This promotion is for the lady’s who will be going out to Black Tie, Private Party’s, and Charity Events.

The client will come in with their gowns or dress’ and I will style or set and do their make up. It is quit popular and allows me to try out different formula’s for the setting or styling of the hair. And also new and popular makeup products. Very popular service, which we have extended to Saturdays after 3:00 in the afternoon.  The last few weeks I have been using a formula with KIN Cosmetics which has given me success.  I have taken a quarter size of the KINSTYLE GELLIN with a quarter size of the KINSTYLE POTION CREAM and WELLAH! I have achieve a sculpting lotion similar to the Paul Mitchel sculpting lotion when it first came out. Excellent hold and will not leave the hair rough or dry feeling. If you are setting the hair you will bet a lot of volume and the wave will stay in for a long time. This product formulation will compliment the hair design.  This is a great setting formula and also for everyday blow drying the hair. I have used the Potion Creme by itself and I was not so convinced about it on fine hair, and a tip don’t get it near the roots. Just the mid shaft and ends. Potion Creme will give you a soft feel and a decent finish but adding the two products together is a winner.  I am not really one to add and add products to a finish. I believe a lot of your work should be in the hair design, if the design is accurate then you will not need a lot of finishing products. But these two products together and you have hit a Grand Slam. Also when you add the irons to the hair you will see tremendous shine.

Ten Things You Should Know About Hair Color and More!

haircolorinorlando.comI got a phone call this week from someone interested if she could make an appointment with me for corrective hair coloring.  The customer said she has been everywhere and no one can get her hair color right. She complained about the stylist would not rinse out all of the hair color, it turned red, and to my surprise she paid for it. Strange. Can you fix it she asked me. I said I cannot see what your hair is like over the phone, but please if you like make an appointment. OK she says I will call back. STRANGE.

  1. Hair color is not permanent it is artificial, tone lasts 4-6 weeks and then it fades.
  2.  Don’t pay for a hair color service if you are not happy.
  3.  Always make sure you and your stylist/Colorist are on the same page, Consultation!
  4. Well water will fade out artificial hair coloring faster than when you have regular running water.
  5. Never use protein on Blonde hair, it will dry it out!
  6. Coconut oil and Almond oil is the best treatment for degraded hair.
  7.  When you change your hair color, change your makeup.
  8.  Change your hair color every season, and if you have blonde hair change the tones of it as well.
  9.  Experiment, Experiment with hair colors. Don’t look like your next door neighbor or soccer MOM.
  10. If you have dark brown hair and you are greying, use some mascara to touch up around the hair-line for important functions.
  11.  With pale skin always keep lighter shade of color around the face.
  12. Toning shampoo’s don’t work the product goes down the drain.
