MAC Lovers, great news is coming your way. This summer you can get your favorite MAC products at Ulta.
MAC Cosmetics realized that it is not always easy for brand lovers to go get the products and they also heard customer requests to place it in Ulta Beauty Stores.
“This is a great opportunity to bring M.A.C. on stream to a whole new audience,” Karen Buglisi Weiler, M.A.C. global brand president, told WWD. “In my mind, there’s maybe a customer who shops at Ulta, but has never walked into a M.A.C. store. Maybe she’s never walked into a Nordstrom to purchase M.A.C. or maybe she’s never walked into a Macy’s.”
Ulta.com will have MAC Products available in May and customers will start seeing MAC in Ulta Stores mid-June.
The Makeup Show Orlandobrought together 50 plus beauty companies and 30 keynote speakers comprised of celebrity and theater makeup artists in a pro makeup artist event. There were brands that are household names and new makeup companies hitting the scene. It was an overwhelming and amazing trade show that I had the pleasure of being at. That said, I tested and tried out many new products and some favorites in new colors. These are the five must-have products that I saw at the show that you need to know about.
I am a fan of NARS cosmetics, however I had never seen the Multiple. This multiple purpose stick is perfect for use on cheeks, eyes, lips and body and has a creamy texture so it is easy to apply, blend and comes in multiple shades so its uses are endless. It is the perfect travel companion as it is compact and cuts down on products in your travel bag. The three colors that I fell in love with are South Beach (Light Shimmering Apricot), Copacabana (Pink Pearl Highlight) and Portifino (Shimmering Coral).
I was so lucky to once again have the pleasure of learning tricks from the Emmy Award Winning Eve Pearl of Eve Peal Cosmetics. A few years back I fell in love with her salmon concealer and still find it to be amazing for my clients and myself. This year I was introduced to her Flawless Face Palette. The Palette contains 2 HD Foundation Shades, 2 Salmon Concealer Shade, 1 HD Cream Blush, 1 Mattifier/Eye Primer and 1 Illuminator. The palette gives you great coverage, perfect for any skin type and gives a matte finish. This palette makes it so easy to have everything you need all at your fingertips for a fresh face.
Finding great mascara and getting the perfect lashes is always a mission of mine. Part of achieving that perfect look comes with the told that you use. I came across a fantastic way not only to apply mascara but the tool that will make it so easy and not only for the top lashes but the lower lashes as well. The mini mascara fan with a bent angle by Bdellium Tools. The bent angle will give you a clean application and easy to maneuver all the way to the lash line and root. The thin fan helps keep the mascara from clumping. Try it and you will find better than a mascara wand.
Ever want to do nail designs but you find that you can not do anything complicated and it ends up looking more like a pinterest fail? I know that feeling, so I was super excited when I came by and saw this Moyou London and the stamping nail art. It is a process that uses engraved steel image plates and a silicone stamp to transfer the designs to your nails in only a couple of minutes. They have hundreds of plates and thousands of images to choose from.
Jaimie Alexander stunned on the red carpet and as a presenter for the 2016 Golden Globes. We are very lucky that Kiehl’s andIT Cosmetics, makeup artist Jeffrey Paul shared with us the products he used to create the beauty look.
“To compliment Jaimie’s luxurious and royalty status dress, I wanted to give her an elegant look with a touch of drama. Jaimie’s features are all stunning so it was hard to decide what should be the focal point but we went with her gorgeous eyes as they are the windows to the soul. I framed them and emphasized the light color with a little bit of drama so she could shine like the star she is on the carpet.”
“A bit of moisture was added first on Jaimie’s lips with Kiehl’s Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm.”
“Her skin was prepped and refined with Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing and Radiance Masque to quickly prime Jaimie’s skin in dry areas. I then began hydrating her skin with Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Essence Treatment, and then made her skin shine with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, and Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado under her eyes.”
