Makeup Prepping for that big event

 

There are many events where we need to have our flawless faces on.  At Judith B we have several makeup artists to help you and this is a prep list to make your makeup artist, and eventually you, happy.

Professional-Makeup-Artist-at-Cinema-Productions-05-2000x1333

BEFORE THE BIG DAY (at least a couple of weeks):

Schedule your makeup trial/consultation

Beauty Sleep

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water

Always wear sunscreen when outdoors

THE WEEK OF:

Wax, thread, whatever. get those unwanted facial hairs gone!

Exfoliate your face and lips a day or two before your makeup application

Beauty Sleep

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water

THE DAY OF:

Bring your own WATERPROOF mascara. It’s all about the wand!  We use Motives Cosmetics and LOVE our mascara.  You can purchase mascara the day with us and fall in love with it too! Otherwise I must use a disposable wand.  For sanitary reasons, these cannot be double dipped into the tube, so they do not hold much product.  Therefore the application is not as dramatic or build-able.  So you can understand why it’s best for you to bring your own.

Bring photographs of makeup looks you like to your consultation.  It’s easier than describing.  We also love Pinterest, YouTube, Instagram, Google… you get the picture- literally.

Cleanse your face and remove ALL traces of makeup.  YES, even those old mascara racoon eyes you slept in.

Use a serum and moisturizer to hydrate your skin and under eye cream if needed.

Apply a lip balm to ensure that lips are smooth and flake free

Tie hair back and out of your face

Wear clothing that you do not mind getting makeup on, that can easily be taken off without touching your face (on the day of the event)

GROWING OUT YOUR EYEBROWS

2014 eyebrows trends

2014 eyebrows trends

The 2014 Eyebrow trends is big, bold and natural! This trend has stayed strong for a while and it’s not going anywhere! I’m personally excited about having a little bit less maintenance and not have to wax every week to keep thin brows clean (Being Latina, I’m a natural Frida Kahlo) Remember that trend?

Remember not to over-tweeze , wax or thread as the hairs may never grow back and you’ll never achieve a full brow. Think #sofiaVergara and #EvaMendes not #Fridakahlo . It takes approx. 6 months, sometimes longer! to grow them out- BUT NOT TO WORRY! you can use makeup to fill them in while you’re growing them out.

FOLLOW THESE STEPS:

1.Using a brow brush, sweep brows up and trim any wild hairs above the natural brow line. Don’t over-think while you’re doing these steps.

2.Place your index finger on the bridge of your nose, any hairs under than finger need to go! (skip this step if you usually go tweezer-crazy and have a professional do it for you.) TIP: Best time to tweeze is after your shower. Your hair follicles are open and it’s much less painful.

3. DO NOT PULL OUT ALL STRAYS, only the ones that are not a part of your final eyebrow goal. If you don’t know what or where that is, let a professional make that arch for you and have them explain where it’s ok to tweeze. TIP: stand a little farther away from your mirror and don’t use a magnifying mirror. It’s easier to see the obvious hairs that need to go this way.

4.Use an angled brush and brow wax to fill in any empty spots.

5. Now, use that brow brush again to quickly comb the brows back into place before the wax dries. No brow gel needed, the wax will hold them in place.

Take-it-up-to-Jesus voluminous Hair

So this season always means BIG BIG HAIR.BIG BIG curls, volume, take-it-up-to-Jesus, Texas-cheerleader hair.  

I have Shu Uemura Volume Maker to share with you!. The Volume maker is the first precision powder brush designed for hair, containing ‘invisible’ powder that adds instant volume, texture, and lift to the roots. It’s good for all and any hair types, especially thing, fine hair that needs the extra boost or BRIDES!  It’s an upstyling MUST.

To use the Shu Uemura Volume maker, Simply click the tail end button three times and brushes the area of the head where volume is desired. It’s best to distribute with circular gestures. It can be used to provide volume and structure or to refresh (read: clean) your hair as needed. It’s similar in concept to a dry shampoo, BUT it’s invisible and non-starch based. Why a makeup brush at the end of the tube?  The limited and diffused application through the brush head itself gives control to the application.  AND keeps your digits cleaner. PLUS- Because the powder is not noticeably white, you can avoid the fussing and mussing that is normally required to blend the white of our favorite dry shampoos into your hair. No need to worry about white flakes or matching your hair color The brush does most of the blending!!

WAIT!  There’s MORE! The compact size and wand shape make it perfect to throw in your purse to go. The non aerosol form makes it airplane friendly too.

Basically this puts enough grit in your hair to be able to tease and shape it where you want it.  No hairspray required, but lesbi-honest… hairspray is always nice too.

EVEN OPRAH LOVES THIS BRUSH!  and you know she’s never wrong!

LADY GAGA for V Magazine

sidenote: Ok, I know!  enough with the post today!  It’s my third, but it seems like lots is happening.

BACK to the real post

This month’s issue of V Magazine marks the debut of Lady GaGa as a contributing columnist. Her first piece, titled “Piet Mondrian & Library Cards”, is a two-page length prose dedicated to discussing all those who were CCed in the heading, which included the Haus of Gaga, Little Monsters, The New York Public Library, Fashion-Sexuals and The World.

Check out these quotes:

“Glam culture is ultimately rooted in obsession, and those of us who are truly devoted and loyal to the lifestyle of glamour are masters of its history.”

“I would dream of being a rock star who dressed like Mark Bloan, walked like Jerry Hall , and had the panache of Ginger from Casino and the mystery of Isabella Blow”

“Art gives birth to new art. There is no chicken or egg. It’s molecular….The past undergoes mitosis, becoming the originality of the future.”

“After weeks of writing this article I ask out loud, ‘What do you think YSL would think of my metaphor about his collection?’ My darling hair designer Frederic replied, ‘You could ask Nan Kempner, but she’s dead.’ Now there’s a queen who never left home without her library card.”

I’m always impressed by Lady Gaga- her outfit choices, her music and “living art” attitude- Good, bad and I don’t know.

Read the entire article !  I think I’m getting a new mag subscription.
