Crystal Renn goes under the knife in Vogue Paris

December 21, 2010

There is no doubt that Crystal Renn has taken the fashion industry by storm.  After reinventing her image as a plus-sized model in the summer of 2003 and penning her first book, Hungry, which documented the model’s struggle with compulsive exercise and fasting, Renn signed with Ford Models and soon emerged in Italian, American, and French Vogue with her new and fuller figure.  As of late, Renn has been flaunting her curves in a fashion campaign for Jean Paul Gaultier, and even landing the front cover of Glamour’s June 2010 issue with fashion and sports megastars, Alessandra Ambrosio and Brooklyn Decker.

The December-January issue of Vogue Paris, which is guest-edited by fashion guru, Tom Ford, showcases Renn as a cougar on the prowl, spoofing the uprising of plastic surgery.  Decked out in jewel tones and animal prints, Renn mimics the over-the-top trend with long, lacquered acrylics and heavy, dramatic makeup.  With dramatic results like these from makeup alone, who needs plastic surgery?

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
