“Holiday Sparkle” Makeup Workshop – The Recap
Two of my favorite things to do is host a fabulous party and teach ladies how to apply makeup with confidence and ease. This past Friday, I combined my two favorite things into one fabulous party and welcomed a houseful of wedding vendors and guests to join me for cocktails, nibbles, and a “Holiday Sparkle” Makeup Workshop!
We were joined by Motives by Estela who was on hand to provide custom blend foundations and concealers, as well as the wonderfully talented Aida Krgin who photographed every detail of the party.
Each guest was sent home with a gift certificate for a complimentary “Makeup Overhaul,” which any and every woman can benefit from! During this service, the client comes to my home-studio and we sort through all of their cosmetics, skin care and makeup tools (brushes, tweezers, etc…). We talk in depth about their particular lifestyle and beauty concerns and I offer personalized product recommendations for any items that need to be replaced, as well as new items that they may be missing.
After the “Makeup Overhaul,” I provide a detailed shopping list of all recommended products including where to find them and how much you should budget for each item. Once the client purchases her new products, she can then schedule a “Lesson in Makeup Application,” so I can teach her how to apply her new and pre-existing products.
Start off 2013 actually using all your makeup that goes untouched because you aren’t sure how to apply it. Call me at 646-418-5445 to schedule your appointment for a “Makeup Overhaul” and “Lesson in Makeup Application,” so that you too can look and feel your best in the New Year and all the days that follow!

I have always said that concealer is the most important product a woman should have in her makeup bag.
Lots of women fear that concealer will look heavy and enhance any fine lines they have around their eyes. My response to this concern is that if you color correct the dark circles than you will look well-rested and at least 5 years younger! The lines are there no matter what so you may as well get rid of any red or purple shading that you naturally have under your eyes.
Here's a simple how to on how to cover your circles with using two products in under 2 minutes.
|What do you need? |
My current faves are
Benefit Erase Paste
Laura Mercier Under Eye Perfecter
|Concealer Brush as part of the Flawless Face brush set|
Click to order
|Start with the Orange Color Perfector by Laura Mercier and lightly apply under the eye starting from the inner corner and continuing up to the lash line|
|A little goes a long way so dip just the tip of your brush into the pot of concealer and lightly apply over the orange color corrector using short feather strokes until the two are blended together.|
|My right eye is successfully concealed|
Now I repeat my two steps on the left eye and I'm good to go!
