Did you know??

 Concealer as a Primer.

bobbibrown

You can use concealer as an eyelid primer for your eye shadow! For those of you who don’t use primer before your shadow, you may have no idea what you’re depriving yourself of, I urge you to try it. I think this is a great little tip because of the fact that there are plenty of people out there who DON’T use a primer or even own one but those same people will most likely own concealer. I mean who doesn’t have a little something they want to cover up??

Anywhoodles, because there are SOOO many types of concealers out there I will tell you that the concealer that you choose to use as a primer should be either skin toned or white. This will ensure that you will get the truest color out of your shadow.

Here are some to consider that do the job, don’t break the bank, save money because they multitask, save space (again with the multitasking) and will last for EVER. A little goes a long way on these babies 🙂

NYX     MAC

Did You Know?

Did you know?
That some after makeup face sealer can also be used as a primer?! Welp, it’s true. One of my favorites to use for this is Ben Nye Final Seal. With its misty fragrance and light feel it’s an ideal choice for priming as well as sealing!!

It’s made for stage makeup so it’s heavy duty in its effort to keep you waterproof and sweat proof. This is awesome for every day but especially important for big events like weddings, gala’s, prom’s etc.

The frosting on this cake is that this products isn’t going to break the bank either. With sizes ranging from 2 fl oz to 16 fl oz and pricing ranging from $2- $25.50 it is definitely something worth packing in your makeup bag/kit.

International Beauty Show is on it’s way to a convention center near you! That’s exactly right, for those of you beauty professionals who are hell bent on making it in the industry, building your careers and your income, you’re not going to want to miss this!!

You can save on your admission fee for 2015 with early bird registration! Tickets are super affordable and give you access to more than 150 hari,nail, makeup and business classes. You will learn from artists from around the world as they provide tips and tricks you can put in your tool belt for future use on your clients. You’ll get in-booth education from the masters in the industry that will help your income soar!! Of course we can’t forget the fact that hundreds of suppliers offer super special show pricing (read cheap and bulk buyable) on THOUSANDS of products and tools. I’ll pause to give you a chance to compose yourself…. It’s ok I’ll wait…. You good? Ok, lets proceed 😉

I’m sure by now you’re wondering what the price for this little gem will be for you and I’m happy to tell you that if you get your ticket early (and why would you NOT) for a one day ticket it will cost you $65.00. There after it doesn’t go up all that much either. Yerp, alls you have to do is get your ticket before January 5th and you can take advantage of this generous offer. If you buy your ticket Jan 6-Mar 7 it’s only $85.00 and from Mar 8- Mar 10 just $95.00. Now if you’re anything like me you’re thinking to yourself “whyyyyy would I only go for one day when I could go for longer??” so pricing for more days in heaven are as follows:

Two Days: $130 (before Jan 5th)​​ $170 (Jan 6-Mar 7)​​ $190 (at the show)
Three Days: $195 (before Jan 5th)​$255 (Jan 6- Mar 7)​​$285 (at the Show)

This is not all they’re offering, you have the option of not just attending but you can also attend the HANDS ON WORKSHOP!! Yep, you can get in there and practice what you’re being taught. I learn by doing so this is some kind of special to be able to roll your sleeves up and DO as opposed to watching.. This is definitely on my “Big Deal Alert”, cuz it’s kind of a big deal. Pricing for your HANDS ON WORKSHOP is $250/$265/$290 again depending on when you buy your ticket. Are you seeing the savings here?

How ‘bout as though that wasn’t enough, you can also attend a MASTER CLASS where you will be able to hone your skills and gain insight and tricks for you to bring back to your salon/business. Master classes are $250/$265/$290 depending on the dates you buy your tickets.

Registering is easy as 123 or in this case 1-877-6938 or you can email them ibsny@xpressreg.net.IMG_0779.PNG

A little education goes a long way!!

Most of us makeup artists began with the curiosity of “how”. It’s a natural process we all have of seeing something and wanting to “tweak” it to make it say, better, prettier, more colorful etc. Those of us that are self taught may have a gift but that doesn’t mean that we should stop there (please don’t stop there). Learning is something that we’re never too old for, never too seasoned, never too much of experts that we couldn’t use learning a new way of doing things.

Education is important in any field you work in. Keeping up with the times, the technology, the “new” is the only way to keep from becoming overlooked in our field. To keep from becoming irrelevant or lose out to another artist we must all make sure we’re educating ourselves. This can be anything from reading a magazine (Makeup Artist Magazine, On Makeup Magazine) to name a couple, YouTube videos, books or even taking a class. If we all work to empower each other, lift each other and teach each other without prejudice we will become a strong industry of talented and caring artists beating faces and taking names. Lol

In an effort to bring you some ideas of where you can turn here are some quick references to get you on your way.These are great weather you’re already a working professional makeup artist or an aspiring makeup artist eager to break into the industry,
