Makeup How-To: Sweet Seduction


A little sexy, a little sweet–that’s the look of the makeup at Moschino’s Autumn/Winter show at Fashion Week. MAC Cosmetics created the look, and here’s the how-to…

FACE
The skin was prepared to look perfect but delicate in appearance. Pro Longwear Concealer mixed with Prep + Prime Essential Oils Grapefruit & Chamomile blended over the face to even and perfect, creating a flawless radiance to skin. Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Groundwork used under the cheekbones for a soft contour. Cream Colour Base in Vintage Rose blended onto the cheeks for a blush from within.

EYES
Pro Longwear Fluidline in Blacktrack drawn in a thin, straight line through the upper lash line with just a little wing of Brushstroke Liner in Brushblack to extend the eye. The lashes were well curled and accentuated with just a hint of mascara and amplified with the 36 Lash for a full, winged effect. A touch of mascara was also applied through the lower lash line for a doll-like impression to the eye. The brows were filled as needed to naturally groom and shape.

LIPS
Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Divine-Divine and Mademoiselle blended together for a velvety pink using the 217 Synthetic Blending Brush to apply, followed with a touch of PatentPolish Lip Pencil in Kittenish for a creamy effect just inside the lip to finish.

For romantic ringlets, curl strands with a medium-barreled curling iron—direct curls away from your face on either side.

Paris Love


How much do we love this tress look on Paris Jackson? SO much. From the feathered sides to the swoop bang volume, it’s like the ’80s got reborn into 2018 and came through with flying colors (or a really great blonde). #HairGoals #HairGoals #HairGoals

Try It On!


Salma Hayek tried on a blonde wig for a night out, and looked fabulous. The brunette beauty, known for her dark, luscious locks, opted for a center-parted bob with sleek appeal. If you’re thinking of trying out a completely different mane look, why not go for a faux try-out with a wig or clip-in pieces?

GONE RED!


Julianne Hough has traded in her well-known blonde locks for something decidedly more RED. The star shared her mane change on Instagram… “I have never felt more like ME than I do right now!! I have always felt like a red head my whole life, even to the point that I’ve thought that my future daughter would 100% be a red head! I’ve seriously talked about doing this for 6 years, ask anyone who knows me…and now that I’m on this new journey, exploring and finding out who I truly am, I said screw it! I feel more feminine and alive and I love it!”

We love it, too!

Is your shampoo leaving your hair squeaky clean? If so, it might be too drying for your hair type.

ABFTTB


After a weather delay, this week will be skier Mikaela Shiffrin’s debut at the Olympic games. You may have seen her commercial on TV, with the ABFTTB tagline: Always Be Faster Than The Boys. The story behind it? Mikaela shared in an interview with NBC Olympics…

“I have the acronym A.B.F.T.T.B. on my helmet. I used to make people try to guess what it means, but it stands for ‘Always Be Faster Than The Boys.’ [Three-time U.S. Winter Olympian] Heidi Voelker signed a poster for me when I was really little and she wrote that. She said, ‘Dream big, Mikaela, and always be faster than the boys.’ I always saw that poster in our basement — our basement was like the playroom — and would be like, ‘Always be faster than the boys. OK, Heidi, I will.’

My dad was like, ‘You should write that on your skis.’ And so we started to do that. Now I have somebody doing my skis for me and they are very particular about what they write on my skis, so they won’t let me write that on them. But I can paint my helmet with the words on it. It’s just inspiring. At this point it’s almost more of a ritual or just something that’s sentimental for me.”

We’re rooting for Mikaela–and revealing one of her mane secrets she revealed on Instagram: “Secret: I love doing hair, and getting my hair done.”

Go, Mikaela!

Always trim split ends before they become too big of a problem to handle. If you let split ends remain, they can eventually travel up your entire hair shaft.

Hair by Shantelle Horn
Posh Salon & Spa, Lexington, KY

This decadent ‘do is the trendy new mane you’ve been looking for. Rich, dark espresso locks are ombréd into a delicious foam-blonde color on the tips. Long strands fall down the back in beachy waves. Yum!
