Our style page is a montage of interesting women and their stories of life, love, happiness, beauty, art and, of course, their makeup routine.
Simone of the online magazine Thesilverwomen.com has interviewed me, helped me with some work related problems and called me in for interesting castings. I knew that she had been a model but we never worked on photoshoots together so yesterday I put that right and asked her to work with me for www.beautyartmakeup.com. Simone is a natural beauty who wears little if any makeup so I thought that it would be difficult for her to wear a strong makeup but on the contrary it was very easy. She has a couple of very important things that are pretty rare in New York and make for a great model, an incredibly luminous skin and clear bright eyes.
MAKEUP INSTRUCTION Beginning with the brows. I thickened them with Blondi pencil and powdered over them using an angle brow brush with storm grey eyeshadow powder. After applying a light oil over her face I blended Black Russian cream blush with my fingers onto her cheekbones. After applying a little concealer around her eyes and on her lid I blended a turquoise shadow on the inner corner up to the brows and purple mist in the outer corner to just past the crease. To deepen the mist I applied over it at the very base of the lashes and in the crease Forest bed. I then applied the purple solo liner to the base of the upper lashes and two pairs of false eyelashes. One pair was very light weight and the others were heavier ones I cut for the outer part of the eyes. On the lips I applied Sophia. For the other photos I used Kryolan Aquacolors. All of these products you will see on the makeup page.
AVA:- Bidding at Auctions
Every year I either work with the Children of Artrageous a Linda Argila event or make a donation to the benefit. Almost 10 years ago a wonderful young woman Cynthia purchased my Freestyle body painting experience together with the mixed media art pieces that resulted from the experience. Nov 2017 Cynthia returned to the Artrageous event benefiting “Hour Children” http://hourchildren.org/ to bid on my offering. The offering was the same Freestyle body painting experience with a different resulting artwork. Instead of a mixed media on wood I was painting on the photos which resulted from the Freestyle. She had a dilemma, who to give the experience to, her 96 year old mother or her beautiful 16 year old daughter. How could I resist doing both! To recreate Ava's makeup in the first photo just blend solo circle opal shadow over the lids then deepen the eye by adding solo circle cocao in the crease of the eye and at the base of the lashes, for the others I used Kryolan Aquacolors. See Art and Accessories if you would like to commission a piece.
When Simone gets up in the morning...
She is detail-oriented in caring for her skin She begins her routine washing her face with a Fresh Brand Soya face cleanser, then finishes the cleansing with a Sephora triple action facial toner. After which she applies to her face Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum (the same cream as the one she uses at night) and MAC Mineralized Charged Water moisture eye cream around the eyes. When the weather is warm, Simone finishes her morning skin care with MAC Studio moisture cream. In the winter this is replaced by Josie Moran Whipped Argan Oil Face butter.
