The big beauty trend of 2016 so far seems to be color correcting. Although this technique has been used in the industry pretty much since the beginning, every brand these days is pushing this “trend.” Beauty Blender came out with a collection of color coordinated applicators, Tarte has a new cream palette, NYX has colored setting powders, MUFE has primers, the list goes on. And yes, I color correct everyday, I need it and I enjoy it. I do it on myself and my clients, but it is important to understand that there is no universal way to color correct. Just like everyone has their own shades of foundation that work for their skin tone, everyone has their own individual color correcting needs. I have seen far too many outrageous Instagram and YouTube “tutorials” on this technique, and feel that nearly 90% of what is out there is so unnecessary and is not coming from a place of knowledge or experience, but rather just hopping on the trend. If you’re one of the countless people out there looking at these videos and thinking “How the F*#% do I do that and why would I need to?” then stick around for this post. I’m going to lay out the color correcting basics for you and hopefully help you begin to understand what might work for you and your needs, and what is just completely wrong.
Hi you guys! So this is something I’ve been wanting to share for a couple of months now and I finally can!
HAPPY HUMP DAY EVERYONE! I’m soooo excited to share my Makeup of the Month with you all! Seriously was SLACKING last month and didn’t even get to do one! This month, I’m sharing with you my absolute FAVORITE products to use for “Baking” (or “Cooking”) your face! I know what you’re thinking, “What does that even mean?” If you’re a makeup artist, you know what I’m talking about, but if you’re a beginner or even just someone who loves makeup and is looking for something new to try, keep reading!
Happy Monday! This week is going to be tough, getting back in the swing of work after a long holiday weekend, but one thing that might help is my Makeup of the Month for July! It’s battle of the primers this month, with one luxury brand and one drug store product. So without further ado, here’s #MOTM:
Just placed my first order to ColourPop Cosmetics! I ordered some awesome pigmented eyeshadows that I’ve heard nothing but great things about! Have any of you tried this brand before? What do you think? I’ll have 5 shades to review for you once I get my shipment- I’m too anxious!
My best friend in the world nataliewantsaburrito.tumblr.com who shares the same passion for makeup as I do let me play with her face tonight!!!!! She is such a stickler for cat eyes and I steered away from that and it came out flawless. She also NEVER wears false lashes and I just got in a new shipment so she let me test those out on her too.
