New beauty trend: the bleached brow look

November 2, 2010

Highly defined brows may have been a big trend at the S/S 2011 GANT show but another rising trend in fashion is almost it’s complete opposite; the bleached brow look.  For 2010, natural shapes may still the predominant eyebrow style; however, one thing has definitely taken a big turn is color.  Bleached brows are popping up all over the place on the runway, in photo shoots, and even on America’s Next Top Model.

Whether you are working on a photo shoot, or just looking to try this look out yourself, knowing how to get the bleached brow look without the commitment of actually bleaching your brows is a valuable bit of knowledge that every makeup artist should know.

Getting the bleached brow look with TEMPTU PRO:

1.  Start by applying S/B Primer on and around the brow area.  This will help prime and perfect the skin, allowing for an even smoother makeup application.

2.  Next use S/B Adjuster in 030 White to cover up the brow and set a natural base for the lighter brow color.  You may have to apply more then one layer for darker brows.

3.  Finally to get that bleached brow look, airbrush S/B Airbrow Color 064 Natural Blonde onto the brow area until desired color is achieved.  If you want to lighten the color for a whiter, more dramatic effect, add a drop or two of our lighter S/B Foundation shades like, 001 Porcelain or 002 Blush Ivory to your gun’s cup.

Voila!  You now have a bleached brow that’s runway-ready or picture perfect without the commitment of actually having to bleach your brows

TEMPTU On the Runway

September 16, 2010

New York Fashion week hit the runaways this past week with Spring 2011 collections. Check out what the TEMPTU PRO team did for Lorick using the TEMPTU AIRbrush Makeup System.

For Spring, the LORICK Collection was inspired by the late painter Agnes Martin with cool, light, minimal forms prevailing. As the designer Abigail Lorick explains, “The Lorick Lady should feel a strong and calming force from this collection.” Deanna Melluso, key makeup artist for TEMPTU PRO created a look that was clean, minimal with subtle and simple color, a “sunkissed city girl” for the Spring.

THE LOOK:
* TEMPTU AIRpod Foundation for the skin for overall even tone – dewy and flawless
* TEMPTU AIRpod Highlighter in Bronze on the outer edges of the apples of the cheeks for contour
and warm shimmer
* TEMPTU AIRpod Blush in Peony (out in Spring 2011) on the apple of the cheeks as a pop of rosy color
* TEMPTU RETOUCH in Translucent in the t-zone

Never Say Goodbye to Summer

September 10, 2010

Summer is coming to an end so quickly! What to do about keeping that sunkissed look year round without the sun filled days?

Here is a great way to add a bronzed glow to any client! 

  1. Airbrush correct S/B Foundation shade to the face
  2. Mix S/B Foundation #009 and a tiny drop of S/B Adjuster in Violet
  3. Lightly spray onto your client’s skin, focusing on the outer edges of the cheeks, forehead and a little across the nose, where sunlight naturally highlights the face

*This color is especially great for warming up the edges on your males clients, creating a little depth without the look of makeup or too much powder.

Enjoy the last bit of summer 2010!
