Before and After - Josia

Hiya Gals,

Lately I have received a few request to do posts on before and after makeup looks, and I thought to myself, why didn't I think of this...it is such a fantastic idea! Most times when I'm doing makeup on my clients I get so wrapped up in what I'm doing that I never think about taking pictures.

Ok, so lets meet Josia!

Josia is one of our Chrysalis models, who has been modeling for us for years. She is always willing to let me have my way with her face and is always willing pose for hours in front of my camera.

Last week she was heading out for a night on the town and asked if I could give her a sexy vibrant look. So here is what I came up with:

Before



A little contouring



After


What I used:

Face: 
  • As the first step, I applied a Prism Camera Ready face primer to her face, followed by  Milani foundation in "Spice Almond"
  • Next I did a little contouring and highlighting with Milani cream to powder foundations in " Caramel Brown" (contour) and "Sand" (highlight). Over the top of the highlighter, I applied a little Prism Shimmer Lotion.
  • On the cheeks I used Maybelline cream blush in "Plums Up"
Eyes:
Lips:

Thanks for reading gals!

What do you think of this look?

Ombre Lips

Hiya gals,

Ombre lips have always fascinated me. Ombre simply means shading or graduation from light to dark, and I think it is a great method to jazz up the lips as the colour combinations and variations of this technique are endless.

Now I know that this is not a new technique, but I am just now realizing that I have never done a post on this popular trend. 

My most fav way of creating an ombre lip is to use the darkest shade around the outer lip as it adds a sharp definition and to use a lighter shade in the center to reflect the light which creates the illusion of soft fuller lips.

PRISM Makeup Essentials

Hiya Gals!

I'm back! I have certainly missed you all over the last couple of weeks. This hurricane really put me behind schedule, nevertheless I am so glad it's over and we made it through. 

Ok so today's topic is our Prism makeup essentials....essentials that every gal should have in their makeup arsenal. When putting the Prism makeup line together, I wanted to be sure to include a few multi-tasking products that work well and compliment any makeup brand. As you all know, products that have the ability to multi-task effectively really make me happy!

Post Hurricane: We are Ok

Hello gals,

I am so grateful to say that we made it through Gonzalo! This was a BEAST of a hurricane that slammed us for approx. 27 hrs with winds reaching 146 mph. There were many roofs lost and some major property damage, but I am so happy that there was no lives lost during this hurricane. 



BELCO  has done an amazing job at restoring power and there  is only about 3,000 of us left without electricity. I am hopeful that power will be restored to the remainder of us in the next couple of weeks, until then we will have to continue dipping water from our tanks to get baths, flush toilets etc.

Thank you so much to you all for your kind words, prayers and encouragement to what was one of the scariest time in my life.

I will be back to blogging as soon as I can (as soon as I get some power) but in the meantime, I will still be making my rounds via my Blackberry and reading your fab blogs.

Here is a link to a few videos of before, during and after Gonzalo

Lots of love.

Away From My Blog Due to Hurricaine Gonzalo

Hi Gals,

I will be a way from my blog, as my country hectically prepares for one of the worst hurricanes…Hurricane Gonzalo, due to hit us on Friday.

This hurricane has become a major threat to Bermuda as it is now a category 3 and is predicted to batter us with tropical and hurricane force winds for approx 27hrs. It’s an understatement to say that I am terrified…but I am sooo terrified. 

For those of you gals who are not familiar with hurricane ratings, they are rated upon strength on a scale of 1 to 5...category 1  being the weakest (wind speed of 74-94 mph) and category 5 being the  strongest (winds of 156 mph and greater) So you can imagine the lashing that Bermuda is about to face…uggh! You can also take a peek at Sharkoil.bm for more info on hurricanes.
