Shiseido Get the Look: Michael Kors

Get the runway look! ‘Getting Gorgeous’ has the EXACT formula makeup artists used for the Michael Kors show… and it was ALL Shiseido! Here’s what Dick Page used:

FACE
Description:

  • First, Dick moisturized the skin with Shiseido’s The Skincare Multi-Energizing Cream.
  • Concealer was used to cover up any imperfections, redness or blemishes. Dick was careful not to apply any concealer under the lash line.
  • A generous amount of Shisedo Makeup Translucent Loose Powder was applied to the entire face to create a matte look.
  • To create the natural and healthy golden bronze look, Dick applied Shiseido Makeup Bronzer Dawn Light (#1) or Desert Rose (#2), depending on skin tone, to the entire face including the forehead, tip of nose, chin, and neck. The bronze complexion was meant to be one shade darker than the model’s natural skin tone.

EYES
Description:

  • Shiseido Makeup Translucent Loose Powder was applied to the lids.
  • Using a very light hand and brush, Dick applied the Shiseido Makeup Luminizing Satin Face Color in Soft Beam Gold (BE206) along the inner corner of the eye, slightly under the lower lash line and under the arch of brow.
  • Shiseido Makeup Shimmering Cream Color in Meadow (BE204) was applied to the inner corner of the eye and the middle of the eye lid for a trace of color.
  • Shiseido Perfect Mascara Full Definition in Brown (BR602) was used on the lashes.
  • A custom brow was created for each model by mixing together the Shiseido Makeup Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Sable (BR709), Caviar (BK912) and Leather (BR306) and applying the combination with a clean mascara comb to finish the eye look.

LIPS
Description:

  • Dick applied the Shiseido Makeup Luminizing Satin Face Color in Soft Beam Gold (BE206) around the outer lip line to create a halo around the lip area.
  • Dick finished by applying Shiseido Makeup Perfect Rouge in Caramel (BE333)lightly with his fingertips.

Pumpkin Mask – At Home Facial!

 

Ever want to try an at-home pumpkin mask? Here’s a great recipe from Erika, author of ‘Bonding over Beauty, A Mother-Daughter Beauty Guide to Foster Self-Esteem, Confidence and Trust’. It was recently featured in Good Housekeeping!

Pumpkin Face Mask

  • 2 tsp canned pureed pumpkin
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp heavy whipping cream
  • Mix all ingredients and apply to face. Leave on for 10 min and rinse

Why: Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, which is very healing to the skin and is essential to maintain and repair skin tissue. It also helps reduce lines and wrinkles.
Honey is a humectant. The cream moisturizes and helps flaky skin.

Audrey and Vera trying out Crest 3D White 2-Hour Express Whitestrips

OK, moms… you know you want a clean, white smile, right?

Well… we’ve taken the plunge!  We’re going for it!

We’re both trying out Crest 3D White 2-Hour Express Whitestrips.

Here’s a little introduction as to why we’re both intrigued…

As you can see, we’re excited and anxious to try them out!

Really, there’s 5 reasons why we want to:
1) We want our teeth to look good and be WHITE.
2) Fast to do. There’s no heading to the dentist and sitting there for an extended period of time.
3) Affordable
4) Safe on enamel, something we were both concerned about.
5) EASY and no mess!

We will check back in after we’ve done our DIY Express Crest 3D treatment!

Izzy Lane Teams Up With TopShop: First Look

To coincide with Wool Week, Topshop has produced three premium coats using British ethical wool produced by Izzy Lane, now in store!
Izzy Lane produces wool made from her own flocks of threatened historic breed sheep which have been saved from slaughter and live on her sanctuary in the Yorkshire Dales. These Shetland and Wensleydale sheep are primitive breeds which were introduced to the Shetland Isles over a thousand years ago and produce a very fine wool. The wool is processed, spun and woven in Britain to support and revive what is left of the British textile industry.

Topshop has chosen three cloths from her range and used them to produce three classically British coats with a twist. A feminine skirted coat comes with a detachable black faux fur collar ($510) in checked tweed, whilst a collarless beige crombie with a faux leather trim ($400) comes in an untreated woven wool. Finally an oversized traditional crombie in black woven wool ($440) has a collar with a contrasting colour on the reverse.
