Jouer means 'to play' in French and that's exactly what we did at yesterdays video shoot! Some great makeup tutorials are coming your way, highlighting some of the spring/summer makeup trends that are not only gorgeous but also easy to re-create on yourself. We were very excited to get the chance to work with Jouer Cosmetics new spring product additions during the shoot.
I'm a huge fan of this makeup brand because of their accessible and easy to travel with packaging, amazing sheer and creamy formulations that accentuate your natural beauty, and of course beautiful color selections. New in for spring are Jouer's Cream Eyeshadow Crayons in Abstract (soft black), Avant Garde (navy charcoal), Rococo (french vanilla), Renaissance (bronzed plum) and Baroque in soft gold. All of these crayons have a beautiful shimmer to them, are crease-resistant and water proof.
Sometime I'm in a rush in the morning and don't have time to use multiple products. That's when products like Jouer's Tint in Honeysuckle come in handy. This new tint comes in my favorite color for cheeks (peach) and literally adds a subtle flush of color that looks completely natural. You can also sweep it across your lips and out the door you go!
Also new in from Jouer are six gorgeous lip products. If you like more bold and solid color you'll love the Tinted Lip Enhancer in Bellini, Cosmo and Shiraz. Or if you desire high gloss shine and a bit of color you'll like the Pearl Lip Enhancers in Nude, Peach, and Rose. Not only do all of these give great color to the lips without feeling sticky, they also serve as a conditioning and plumping lip treatment with Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil.
Models appear to have glamorous, jet-setting lifestyles as they fly from one Fashion Week to the next but little do we know how traumatic this is on their skin. After all, their face is put through the ringer and doesn't have a lot of breathing time when it's constantly having makeup reapplied to it every hour. Makeup artists witness dry patches, redness and faces covered in pimples on a constant basis. So it's not unusual for makeup artists to apply their favorite skincare items to rescue model's traumatized skin behind the curtain.
Makeup artist Kristen Arnett, fashion week veteran was able to remove unbudging, full kabuki makeup with ease and without traumatizing the skin using RMS Beauty's Coconut Oil. Featured on wellangoodnyc.com, more and more makeup artists are stocking their kit with natural skincare alternatives because they find they're the best method to treat overworked skin without adding extra irritation. Other natural beauty products that made their way behind the scenes at New York Fashion Week was CV Skinlabs Calming Moisture. This to-the-rescue moisturizer instantly minimizes redness and hydrates parched skin despite what has been done to it during Fashion Week. Embrace natural skincare alternatives, especially when a makeup artists puts their stamp of approval on it!
