MODERN BOLD PINK MAKEUP – How to Wear the New Fantasy Makeup

Pink makeup used to be solely for blush or lips but everyone’s favorite color is having a true beauty moment, more bold than demure.  Top makeup artists are using pink hues in unexpected ways from graphic eyeliner, to highlighting, to highly pigmented shades applied with a heavy hand. 

The chief difference is that it isn’t blended into a sheer wash to enhance the complexion, but to be a stand-alone color that has a 3-D quality.  Throw out the rulebook and mix various pink tones together and play with mixing matte and more luminous finishes together. 

Apply the color boldly where it breaks traditional beauty rules, and think more “hot house flower” than “pink peony”.  This is not your mother’s pale pink makeup.  Color outside the lines and be bold.  Adding a little fantasy to your beauty look is fresh, and very now.

The Breakout Models of the Spring / Summer 2018 Fashion Weeks Season

The exhausting, exhilarating, frenetic, inspiring month of Spring / Summer 2018 fashion weeks is done.  Reviews are in and orders placed.  Editors are holding the pieces they hope to include in upcoming editorials, and designers have already begun their Fall / Winter collections. The designers and celebrities are not the only stars of the past month.  A crop of standout models, many in their first show season, has captured the eyes of fashion and beauty brands, editors and photographers.  Creating buzz on a noisy stage is difficult at best, so kudos these women who managed to enchant, intrigue, and make a memorable impression – no easy feat when nearly all the models in a particular show wear the same hair and makeup. 

Sometimes it is a fresh haircut, a quirky look, a powerful walk, or an incredible body that sets a model apart.  It is a particularly good period in the industry for models who are different, as the pendulum slowly swings away from the “clone” models of the last decade.  With the emergence of social media influencers, celebrity offspring, and street style models appearing on runways and in campaigns, the cult of personality is gradually making its way back into the fashion and beauty industries. 

We hope this means less of a “disposable” model career timeline where young teens have one amazing season and then disappear.  Let them grow up and evolve and be real contributors in a more meaningful way to brands.  We are rooting for these models and we can’t wait to see them in prestigious editorials, fronting the best magazines, and on many future runways.

Breast Cancer Awareness: THE POWER OF PINK

The Power of Pink reigns every October as Breast Cancer Awareness month kicks off to support those battling the disease and to fund research in the race for the cure.  One in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, affecting not only the woman’s life, but the lives of her family, her friends, and her community.  We each owe it to ourselves to be educated about risk factors, to get regular breast exams, to support those who are suffering from the disease, and help to fund those researching treatments and the cure.

An easy way to contribute in the fight against breast cancer is to use your buying power to purchase products that raise funds for the many organizations and foundations that rely on donations.  The beauty shelves are filled with special editions, collections, and enticing products from brands who have committed between 20% to 100% of their proceeds to various foundations and organizations. Shop these amazing beauty treats and many more by looking for the Pink Ribbon symbol and show your support for these amazing breast cancer warriors.

Claudia Schiffer Builds Her Lifestyle Brand One Stylish, Supermodel-approved Product at a Time

Legendary super model Claudia Schiffer is on her way to becoming a powerful lifestyle brand one fringed boot, red lipstick, and luxurious sweater at a time.  One of the most successful and enduring models of the nineties, Claudia has never really had a break from the fashion and beauty industry in the last thirty years of her career, but then she never really wanted one.  Through marriage and motherhood, Claudia has remained as relevant today as she has been at any point in her career.  So deep is her love of fashion, it has resulted in her own personal warehouse filled with her collection of iconic designs from the most coveted designers, from gowns to knits, to footwear, handbags, and more. 

But to think that Claudia lives in couture would be completely off the mark.  In fact, she is much like the rest of us, refining her own personal style into a uniform of classic pieces that work for her busy life, are comfortable, fun, and infinitely relatable.  Jeans, boots, trousers, flats, sweaters, blouses, and knits that can go from her English countryside estate to business meetings and beyond, are as functional for her as the rest of us, prompting her to create a line of cashmere sweaters and knits that are luxurious, sporty, fresh, and versatile.  My personal favorites are her versions of striped sweaters, a symbol of classic French style. 

This year saw the launch of the highly anticipated Claudia Schiffer Makeup Collection in collaboration with ArtDeco Cosmetics, highlighting her own favorite products and colors, gleaned from her lengthy career as the face of a multitude of brands.  Who couldn’t benefit from the beauty secrets of a woman who has stood at the pinnacle of the fashion and beauty industries for decades?

Although we have seen her countless times “running in heels” as it were, Claudia is more likely to be seen in lux boho suede boots and chic flats, worn with jeans and a sweater for her busy schedule, proving that true style does not compromise on comfort.  Her passion for footwear has led to an exciting collaboration with Edgardo Osorio, designer of the coveted label Aquazurra, in an eight-piece collection ranging from suede boots and booties that are equal parts boho and French-woman-chic, to embroidered flats that pair just as perfectly with jeans as with a gown.  In true Claudia Schiffer fashion several pieces are embellished with tiny stars giving them a hint of a supermodel flair. 

How Claudia arrived at this point is the stuff of fashion legend and to celebrate her thirty year career she has just released her own book published by Rizzoli, a perspective of her experiences working alongside legendary editors, photographers, and designers over the decades.  Fittingly the book launch was feted in grand style at Fashion Week in Milan. 

Claudia Schiffer is more like the rest of us than not, despite her success, as she proves beauty and style are not exclusive nor defined by age or time.  She is firstly a mother and wife who just happens to be a supermodel and powerhouse brand in the making.
