Getting Ready For The Makeup Show!
I am currently getting ready for the makeup show in Orlando. What girl doesn’t love make up? Throughout the years I have gotten more and more interested in the artistry of makeup. Growing up my mother taught me the basics. She wasn’t into wearing a lot of makeup, but I grew up as a dancer, so makeup was very important on stage.
I had my moments were my makeup was a mess, OMG if I showed you pictures! Thanks to youtube and other platforms I have been able to learn more about products & techniques. This upcoming weekend I will be attending the Makeup show in Orlando, FL. The Makeup Show is one of the biggest pro make up events in the USA. It brings people from all over the world, Many professionals in the field teach techniques and share great insights from the industry. Definitely check out The MakeUp show to learn more about this awesome event.
Here are some current trends from MakeUp artist James Vincent:
In Your Own Skin
Natural Skin is a must have for the summer months. Look to the Red Carpet, runway or your favorite fashion magazines and you will see models and celebrities wearing makeup that is barely there featuring a soft matte finish. A sheerer coverage complexion with strategic warmth and shine is flattering for any face. Chose a long wear or waterproof option for optimum summer wear. A few of our favorites are Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Foundation and MAKE UP FOR EVER Waterblend. For additional hold and perspiration control, try Alcone or Mehron anti shine and sweat products as a primer. The pros swear by them to keep clients looking cool in the most intense heat.
Bright Eyed Wonder
Bold, beautiful pops of color were the perfect addition to summer and resort runways this season. As all over eyeshadow, a bold swipe of eyeliner or a bit of brightly colored mascara are a few ways to take the trend to your everyday. Try Danessa Myricks ColorFix for a long wear pro favorite that can be used as cream shadow, liner, mascara or lip. Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliners add a touch of bright color with a simple application. Colored Mascara from Kryolan is an excellent pro classic available in his from bright neons to bold jewel tones and take just a minimal amount of makeup skill.
Neo Graphic Liner is an easy summer choice. Pair a bold black liner with any lip from barely there to a daring red and it will always work. Traditional cat eyes are a bit blockier this season or try a sexy, smudgy cat eye for an unforgettable modern look. Stila Microtip Stay All Day Eyeliner allows you to create any shape effortlessly. Stillazzi Borderline Intense Gel Eyeliner is quickly becoming a pro favorite that’s easy to apply, featuring a super durable formula that looks fantastic from day to late night.
Glitter is never going away. This summer we are seeing easy glitter looks along the eyelid as liner or shadow. Try Mehron’s new Echo Pressed Glitter Palette for a no mess, easy option that works well on its own or overshadow. Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow have a large variety of beautiful summer shades that apply with one swipe. For a more ethereal glitter experience, look to Danessa Myricks Beauty, Kryolan or MAKE UP FOR EVER for the most magnificent glitter makeup options.
The smoky eye never fails to make a return for fall. This season we see an eye that uses texture for impacts as well as color. Combine different formulas for off the runway, editorial looks that work well for every day. MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Pencils are the perfect base for smudgy, sexy lines. Layer on a gel liner like Stillazi or a cream product like Danessa Myricks Colorfix for added drama. Finish with your favorite shimmer shadow like Cozzette metallics in a rich, blue tone and you have an easy and unforgettable smoky eye that is seasonal as well as sensational.
