1. The Barbie Doll Look
Feeling playful? Create a Barbie Doll look with a grown up twist! Perfect for a black or silver dress with rhinestone accessories. Use a white eyeshadow all over the lid as the base and pat glittery eyeshadow on top. Select a taupe-y brown and apply this to the outer corners of the eyes and sweep it into the crease. Make sure to blend well. Line the upper lash line with black liquid or gel eyeliner and wing it out for a sexy cat eye effect. If you're feeling a little daring, add more drama to the eyes by applying heavy false lashes with sparkly rhinestones attached to them. Top off the look with your favorite pink blush and lipstick.

2. The Eye-Catcher
Want your eyes to be the center of attention? Creating a vampy cat eye look with nude lips and cheeks for a sexy Maxim Magazine look. Perfect for a red hot, white, or nude colored dress. To create that sharp angled edge, take a piece of tape and line it parallel with your bottom lash line. Select a grey or silver eyeshadow and apply it over the eye lids. Take a slightly shimmering or matte black color and apply it to the outer corners of the eyes. Slightly blend the colors together. Next, take a frosty white eyeshadow and apply it to the inner corners of the eyes to highlight and bring light into them. Pat a small amount of the same color to the center of the eyes for a touch of add dimension and pop. Add false lashes and optional rhinestones to the outer corners of the eyes. FInish off the look with nude pink lips and soft pink blush.

3. Kissable Sexy Red Lips
Get ready to turn heads with this sexy look! Perfect for almost any outfit. Especially with a black or red dress! Start out by creating a smokey eye. The key to creating the perfect smokey eye is all about blending. BLEND BLEND BLEND! Select a nude colored eyeshadow as your base. Take your favorite brown or black eyeshadow and apply it to the outer corners of the eyes and blend into the crease. Highlight the brow bone with a light vanilla colored eyeshadow and highlight the inner corners of the eyes with a shimmering white or champagne color. For kissable lips, make sure to gently exfoliate and put on a moisturizing lip balm. Select your favorite red lipstick and apply it with a lip brush for a crisp clean finish. Top off the cheeks with an apricot colored blush.

I will be rocking the Barbie Doll look with heavy rhinestone studded lashes and extra rhinestones glued to the outer corner of my eyelids! yeay, super fun! :)

This Halloween, retro is chic. The stewardesses featured on ABC’s Pan Am definitely represent “a new breed of women in the early 1960s.” Their constant travels and flirtations with incredibly HOT pilots make you want to invent a time machine!

Vampire Themed

From Vampire Diaries and Trueblood to the twilight finale, who wouldn’t want to be a vampire?

You can either be sexy or scary, but in both cases you have to invest in some dark eye shadows. To achieve this look, try RHM “LIL DEVIL” baked eye shadow or go crazy with RHM “GLAMOROUS” eye shadow palette. You can create either pale lips using “SUGAR” lip-gloss or red lips using “RED HOT” lip-gloss. You’ll be ready in no time to suck some blood!

As a makeup artist, it is essential to clean your makeup brushes. Start making it part of your routine to wash and clean your brushes - it will help prevent breakout by not allowing bacteria and germs to accumulate.

Never share your brushes esp. those for your eyes. If you're planning on applying makeup that day, make sure to plan wisely or else you'll get undesired results with those damp brushes.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday evening and begin the week with a BANG!

Happy To Mentor People In The Beauty Industry!

I'm always very honored when people reach out to me and seek career advice via Linkedin or otherwise. It just makes me feel so happy to help out newcomers and/or people considering further education, etc. So this week, I corresponded with someone who wanted to know about pursuing a dual education/career as a 'professional esthetician' alongside her existing marketing career. Since I have professional experience myself (as a licensed esthetician & professional makeup artist) and a corporate background (in marketing & product development) and also years of experience as a beauty consumer - I've always said YES to having both sides. Yes it REALLY helps!!! It gives you an amazing advantage and point of view from all angles. So today, I just wanted to share the very kind response that I received from her - she is a lovely person and I wish her all the best in her future endeavors! :)))

Happy Monday Lisa,

I have great news! Your guidance inspired a brave addition to my everyday. I enrolled in esthetician night school. I am currently employed and am going to balance a Mon - Fri 5-10pm class to work towards my dream.

I realized that only I have control of where I take my current marketing experience and make it work in an industry I am passionate about. I look forward to the challenge!

I will keep you posted on my progress and truly appreciate your advice and encouragement.

Have a great week!

Not sure which shade to get? Try a few and mix them together! The possibilities are simply endless. Have fun experimenting and looking gorgeous while you’re at it!

Lisa’s Red Hot Tip: Eyeshadow Palettes

Ok... who doesn’t want beautiful eyeshadow selections to carry around with them?

This is the perfect way to have choices – wherever you go! Use the Brown tones for a more natural look and the Black tones for a more dramatic look. Either way you will have fun while transforming your eyes into an total sex kitten! Use the lighter shades closest to the lash line or under the brow bone and the darker shades in the outer corners and the crease of your eyelid. But most important - blend, blend, blend!

Lisa’s Red Hot Tip: Concealers

Concealer can be used with your fingertips or a concealer brush. I like using a brush best and blending it in softly.

A little goes a long way. Always apply the concealer to the darkest area under your eye and blend upwards. Sometimes I use a disposable sponge to gently blot away any excess. It can also be used on redness and sun damaged areas. I use concealer lightly after my foundation is set in place but it’s totally up to you.

Lisa’s Red Hot Tip: Baked Blushes with Highlighters

Ooooh this is one of my favorite items - The perfect combination of blush and highlighter all in one! You can use as much as you like and never go wrong – hey we like that!

Just dip in a blush brush or Kabuki brush and apply to the apples of your cheeks. Gently sweep back into the hairline and onto your forehead too. This will give you a nice sexy glow – and you know what I’m talking about!

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Lisa’s Red Hot Tip: Mineral Foundation

Hey ladies, always apply your foundation to clean, moisturized skin. This will ensure a more flawless finish and even coverage.

Using your Kabuki brush dip into the powder gently, tap it and swirl around in circular movements over your entire face. Start lightly – you can always add more. It’s also important to wash your foundation brushes every so often to avoid spreading bacteria and getting a breakout YUCK!

So You Want To Become A Professional Makeup Artist?

Well I understand you! J You have probably played around with makeup your entire life, watching your mother and/or sisters and you have a real passion for it. Yes, that was me so many years ago. Well, my first recommendation that I always give to people like yourself is that you really should go to a state board - official - beauty school. Get your license. Beauty school teaches you the basic fundamentals, use of tools and instruments and most importantly, the safety and sanitation requirements mandated by state law.In this day and age, people are very quick to sue you for something. The last thing you want is someone to sue you because they saw you drop a tweezer on the ground and forget to clean it before putting it back on your table. Another example: using old eyelash adhesive which smelled really foul and should have been thrown away. Washing your hands in between each client is a must do. These are the kinds of things – and so much more – that you will learn in this type of institution.

Once you have learned the basics then try to attend one of the more glamorous makeup school or seminars. Practice all the time on your friends and volunteer to do makeup whenever you can to hone your craft. Remember makeup artistry is like being a regular artist and you need to practice to get really good at it. I recommend buying some of the popular books on the market today – published by some of your favorite celebrity artists.

You will need a tool box of course and this consists of many things. Expect to spend a lot of money initially as it’s quite shocking how much this adds up – but worth every penny. Get a good sturdy case and possibly with wheels. I’ve gotten to the point where my load is so big that I’m actually working out of a regular sized black suitcase – but you can buy your own personal preference of course. There are many good lists available on the internet for all the basic tools to get started. Of course, a good brush set with minimum of about 10-12 brushes. All of your disposable items: sponges, mascara wands, tissue etc… Then of course, you will need all of your categories (foundations, blushes, lipsticks etc) and shades in each one. Whew… the list seems endless doesn’t it? But I recommend starting outwith the basics. But one important thing I learned to do and became REALLY good at fast was custom color blending. With a limited amount of product I was able to custom blend and create any color I wanted. I actually have an artist “color wheel” in my makeup bag – its priceless. I refer to it still o

nce and awhile. A great skill to have – custom blending - especially when you accidently left your favorite royal blue shade sitting at home on the counter! J

Best of luck to you my dear friends on your professional makeup artist journey!!!

Overplucked Eyebrows?

I plucked off almost all my brows. Can I fill them in without getting a drawn-on effect?

Remember the three Fs: fill, fix, and feather, says celeb makeup artist Brett Freedman. First, pick a pencil that matches your brow color. Fill in the entire brow, not just bald spots — this is key to making sure everything blends together. Then fix extra thin areas (like where your outer brow connects to the arch) with more pencil. Finish by feathering out the color: Brush a clean mascara wand through each brow in short strokes to diffuse any harsh lines.

How about a Chanel look??

You will for sure attract attention with this winning combination.

Being a supermodel is not difficult!!! ☺

The 4 Best Hair Looks from Paris Fashion Week Fall 2011

Whether up, down, to the side or back in a pony, the best hairstyles in Paris had an organic quality, thanks to natural-looking texture and a slightly haphazard feel. In true Parisian fashion, though, no matter how imperfect the hair, it still managed to look incredibly chic. These are our favorite styles:

1. Rumpled waves at Chloé;.
The Chloé girl had a vibe that said, "I just rolled out of bed looking this good" and the hair certainly helped. The long, middle-parted waves were a bit rumpled, but also shiny with lots of volume at the ends. Hairstylist Luigi Murenu created the texture by applying John Frieda Luxurious Volume Mousse from roots to tips, then blow-drying to give the hair a little bend.

Using a large-barrel curling iron, he curled just the middle of one-inch sections. Both the top and very bottom were left straight and smooth, giving the hair a worn-in (but not grungy) feeling.

2. Gold-studded ponytails at Dries Van Noten.
Hairstylist Paul Hanlon literally put a ring on it for this look, adding a gold accent
around the base of the easy, messy ponytails. "During the fitting, I picked up these beautiful gold rings from Dries, and I put them on the hair, and he liked it," Hanlon said, adding, "the designer wanted it to look simple and effortless, and not feel like the hair had been touched by a hairdresser." To do this, Hanlon blew the hair dry, then massaged Bumble and Bumble Styling Lotion into the models' scalps for a full five minutes to give the hair an airiness. He created an imperfect center part and finger-combed the hair into a ponytail, roughing up the roots with a little dry shampoo. The tail was then tightly twisted to allow the antique-gold rings to be slipped on from the bottom up.

3. Side knots at Chanel.This chignon was way cooler than your average ballerina bun. "It has a boyish shape, with a low side part that is swept around into a side knot," said hairstylist Sam McKnight. He left the front layers hanging out, and kept the knot loose, not frozen in place—it bounced and moved as the models walked down the runway. Some of the models had decorative clips pinned onto or just above the knot.

4. Simple headbands at Valentino.
The black ribbon placed over the low ponytail was a definite hit. "It's a look, but without being heavy-handed," said hairstylist Guido. "It's easy, but it has a slight personality and glamour to it." Guido prepped the hair with Redken Velvet Gelatine 07, then blew it out with a round brush to add a bit of curl at the ends. He center-parted the hair, teased the crown for volume, and pulled out two side pieces in front of the ears. He put the rest of the hair into a low ponytail, then placed the ribbon behind the part (where the teased area began) and tied it behind the ponytail's base.

Which style do you love most?
