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?

Bold Brows are Back!

September 28, 2010

Time to channel your inner 80’s Material Girl!

Bold brows are back for the season!

Thin and over plucked brows are out totally out! Say hello to thick, Brooke Shields-esque brows, that were seen all over the runways for Fall & Spring!

Brows are extremely important when creating a makeup look. Bold brows define the character of the face.

Tip: An attempt for bold brows can easily go wrong – First you want to make sure your eyebrows are groomed – Thick brows = yes, Uni-brow = NO!

The most important thing to remember is to always use an eyebrow color that is one shade lighter than your natural color. This will create a natural, more modern look that does not look out-dated.

Check out the TEMPTU PRO S/B Airbrow Set to help you achieve flawless, natural looking, fierce brows!

Match those brows with sexy, bold red lips and you’re ready for your close-up!

Look to Max Azria for Spring Looks

September 16, 2010


Max Azria’s Spring 2011 Runway show highlighted a super casual, soft, and fresh makeup look, sure to be a hit for the Spring.  Designed by makeup artist Lisa Butler and carried out by the TEMPTU PRO team, see below for the details!

The desired look for the show was to produce angelic-looking, youthful girls. The makeup was soft to compliment the collection which was made up of soft and muted peaches and creams.

“On the skin, we’re using a silicone and water hybrid, brush-on foundation called TEMPTU RETOUCH FOUNDATION to cancel out any redness and give a fresh, dewy look,” explained Lisa Butler.

To achieve a heavenly glow, makeup artists brushed the TEMPTU RETOUCH HIGHLIGHTER in Pink Pearl a little bit higher than the model’s natural cheekbones. They also used the same color on the model’s arms, legs, and décolletage to add a nice sheen.

To finish off the look, they added a peach blush just below the apples of the cheeks and left the lips and eyes bare.

Nothing to it! A beautiful soft and simple look that is totally wearable and easy to recreate!

Getting a perm and trying to bring the Walkman fad back probably wouldn’t be the best way to get noticed (in a positive light) these days, a temporary tattoo from TEMPTU or TEMPTU PRO is a great way to infuse a little edge in your look without looking like you’ve gone over the edge!
