Flower Petal Fashion

In the fashion industry (clothing, hair, makeup), it is so important to allow things around you to inspire your creativity.  Such is the case for 22 year old Grace Ciao.  Grace is currently a student in Singapore studying business and works freelance as a fashion designer.  Her idea to use flower petals came to her when she was trying to preserve the beauty of a dying rose that a boy gave her.  Now, she constantly uses flowers because of the unique patterns, shapes, and designs.  

Open your eyes, and get inspired!

Every Good Makeup Needs A Great Foundation

As of September 1, 2013, Nars has released the bad mama jama of foundations!

Say hello to “Radiant Cream Compact Foundations”!  Yes, it’s a mouthful, but I promise it is worth it.  Do you want pretty glowie skin?  Do you want flawless NATURAL coverage every day?  What about something that takes less than a minute to put on?  What if I told you this product does all of those things and more?!

Radiant cream compact foundations can be worn in three different ways:

1. Slightly dampen your sponge before applying in foundation.  This will give you a sheer wash of natural glowy skin.  (Like a tinted moisturizer)

2. Use dry sponge directly into the product and on to your skin.  By using this technique, you will get a beautiful medium coverage.  (Nars Sheer Glow / Smashbox Liquid Halo / Mac Mineralized Foundation. )

3. For a full coverage look, use your fingertips!  This will warm the product and allow it to melt on the skin.  This will allow the product to layer more naturally on top of itself.

Another amazing benefit to these foundations is that they are so convenient to carry.

As a consumer, the convenience of a refillable case makes resupplying the product less expensive!  The foundation palette and the refill sells for $48.  The refill alone is $38.  On average, this will last you about 5-6 months if used daily.  Now my fellow makeup artists can appreciate that you can simply carry the refills in your kit.  UM HELLO!!!  One foundation, that can be used in three different ways, that is the size of the palm of your hand?!  That will save a lot in back problems over the years.

Hope you guys enjoy this amazing product as much as I do!
