January 26, 2013

eyelashextensionshobokenDo we want them thin, short and barely noticeable?? NO!! We want them thick, long and luscious!!!  Ok calm down for just a second…we’re talking about eyelashes!!!

Blue Eyeshadow- The Dos and Donts

January 18, 2013

Celebrities like January Jones, Nicole Kidman and Nicole Ritchie were quick to emulate the Spring 2013 blue eyeshadow trend from the NYFW runways — but not everyone got it right.  Wearing blue eyeshadow takes a bit of finesse, color know-how and application expertise.  If you don’t combine the right shading of blue colors, you can end up looking like a flashback to the 1980’s.

The 2013 blue eyeshadow trend looks best on most as a blue, smokey eye.  Dark, smoldering blues look sultry blended at the upper and lower lash line with a platinum silver as the base color for the lid and brow bone.

We love the way January Jones blended a daring cobalt color around her eyes and intensified the look with black eyeliner.  Nicole Ritchie seemed to get it wrong with her choice of blue.  Instead of looking sexy and smoldering, her eyeshadow makes her look matronly and dated.

To get January’s look, try Younblood pressed eyeshadow in ‘Sapphire’ around the lash lines.  It’s a deep royal blue with a metallic sheen. Youngblood eyeshadow in ‘Platinum’ can be used to create a shimmering look for the base and brow bone.  For a brighter pop of color, you can also blend in a little ‘Azurite’ by Youngblood. This is a shimmery teal blue color. **Youngblood Cosmetics are available at Lorraine’s House of Styles.

Fuller, Thicker Eyebrows

How to get fuller eyebrows like Camilla Belle.

How to get fuller eyebrows like Camilla Belle.

Fuller eyebrows are a trend that is not going away. After decades of the skinny brow look, many of us are left with over-plucked brows that are slow to grow back. So now that our favorite celebs are sporting a thicker brow, many of our clients want to know how they can get the look too.

Fear not.  Even if your eyebrows are over plucked and slow to grow back, there is still hope for you.  First things first, put down the tweezer.  Let your eyebrows grow in as much as possible before having them professionally shaped.  Tinting your brows, even for darker brows, can help them look fuller. For a daily, temporary fix, use Youngblood eyebrow powder to fill in bald/sparse areas and add a little bit if fullness to the top of your brow.  Never add shadow underneath your brows. That can leave you looking like a clown.

Make-Up For Women Of Color

The Right Colors for Your Complexion

IMG_0488

Decades ago, cosmetics were mostly aimed at a fair-skinned market, leaving African American women with few resources. The foundations and powders that were available at the time often left women with darker skin with an unattractive, ashy undertone. However, in recent years, the cosmetics market has exploded with products geared toward women of all shades, no matter how dark or light the skin.
Makeup that looks good on light skin may not complement dark skin well, and vice versa. Depending on your particular complexion, you might look great in Beyonce’s makeup colors or you might look better emulating Gabrielle Union.

Color Categories

The best way to get started with determining the type of skin tone you have is to see which of these three categories you fall into. Even with the number of shades, black skin can be broken into three main categories:

Dark

The darkest of African American skin tends to have a strong grey or reddish undertone. This skin color formula is best with makeup colors that are primary hues of red, mauve and magenta.

 Medium

IMG_0648

Most dark skin falls into the middle category with a medium color tone. The makeup shades most beneficial for these colors are shades with red and blue undertones.

Light

Colored skin that falls into the light category are mostly yellow and olive shades. The best makeup colors follow an earthier palette.

In addition to determining which of the three categories your skin falls into,

you can also try to determine whether you have warm or cool undertones.
