The New Red Lip: The Ultimate Classic Glam Look:

A bold red lip is a beauty wardrobe essential with a shade and texture to suit every skin tone and style.  It is universally flattering, powerful, assertive, classic, and most of all sexy.  It demands to be noticed and pairs as easily with a fresh, clean complexion as it does with a stronger, edgier palette, making it suitable for any place and any time.  It is the quickest way to amp up a casual look, to project power and confidence, and to add sex appeal.  It is just as appropriate in the office as it is in the night club, and finishes off a look like no other beauty product can.  So if you haven’t tried a red lip, what are you waiting for? 

There is good reason why so many iconic beauties of the past and present have made a red lip their trademark, and you can too. The two distinct versions this season are the matte red lip, and the 3D glossy look, and there are new products to help you easily achieve both.  

A red lip can be intimidating because the application needs to be quite precise but who doesn’t love a good lip pencil and the thrill of filling in your lips with a luxuriously textured lipstick or gloss?  Makeup artists have a few tricks to create the perfect red lip:

Choose a shade that works on your skin tone, either a shade with warmer undertones or a cooler shade with blue or plum undertones.  

Start by outlining the lip and then fill in the lips with the lip pencils as this will make the lipstick or gloss last longer and stay put.  Draw slightly outside the edge of your lips if you want to add a bit of volume but don’t go too far or it will be really noticeable, mores than the amazing red itself.  

Correct any little smudges or irregularities with a straight-edged lip brush using concealer.  

Follow up with a layer of matte lip color using a lip brush rather than just the lipstick bullet itself for  more precision.  

For a glossier or satin finish, apply a red gloss that isn’t too sticky overtop.  

Try these new products specifically formulated for a matte lip that aren’t drying or tightening  that on luxuriously, and next generation lip shines that have a vinyl finish, won’t budge, and have more pigment than previous glosses:

Models' Off-Duty Beauty - The Face This Guide

Yes, they are genetically gifted and look gorgeous with or without makeup and hair, but they do have personal beauty rules they stick to on their days off and on travel days, to maintain their skin and hair so it can stand up to the rigors of back to back shows and photo shoots.  With all the makeup switch-ups during show seasons, usually multiple times per day, quick and often extreme hair manipulation, little sleep, irregular eating habits, airplane air, and general stress or the hectic pace of it all, models have to take care of their skin and hair if they want to keep working. 

Giving their skin and hair a rest on down days is first and foremost to models.  Letting their skin breathe and not be coated with different products is essential, as is letting their hair be clean and in its natural state as much as possible. Proper sleep, drinking water, wearing sunscreen, never going to bed without removing makeup, and using a super-hydrating moisturizer twice a day, are standard model beauty rules that go a long way in maintaining a healthy complexion.

We did an informal survey amongst some of the top models in Miami this season and asked them for their favorite products and beauty tips:

Cleanser:  Bioderma

Sunscreen:  Neogen SPF 50

Moisturizer: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel with Hyaluronic Acid

Lips:  Homeoplasmine

Mascara:  Maybelline Great Lash

Tinted Moisturizer:  Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Vitamin E oil and coconut oil for treating hair, skin, dry patches, body, cuticles, etc.

Take it from these models that what you don’t put on your face is just as important as what you do.  Giving your skin  time to recover and rejuvenate is crucial.  A fresh, glowing, hydrated complexion is beauty at its best.

Summer Beauty Tips fromTop Makeup Artist and Beauty Expert Colleen Stone!

Everyone wishes they had the advice of a top makeup artist not just for photo shoots and skin care, but for every day, as the seasons and trends change, and it can be hard to keep up with all the new products hitting the market.  Top makeup artist Colleen Stone has worked with Pandora, Dooney and Bourke, Echo, FemeStage and countless other projects this past winter and spring, including TV appearances for Coco Rocha. Colleen answers our beauty questions and shares her tips for spring and summer beauty, so we can all try to look as gorgeous as her models and you can find more tips on her website at

1) What is your secret weapon to achieve amazing summer skin?

As the summer months heat up, so does the humidity, and your skin care routine should be adjusted. A lighter day moisturizer like one of the new gel type moisturizers such as Neutrogena Hydro Gel will keep skin hydrated without the heaviness of a regular winter cream.  Sunscreen is a must for the summer too and there are many lightweight versions to choose from that won’t clog pores and make skin look oily.  I really like some of the sunscreens coming out of Asia, specifically Korea. They protect the skin with advanced technology and feel and smell more like moisturizers than typical sunscreens. Beautiful summer skin can be achieved with some spot concealing and a bronzer. I like to use waterproof concealer to protect from the humidity, like Lancome’s Effacernes, and a cream based bronzer like Tom Ford’s Shade & Illuminate.

2) What is your best skin prep advice for models for the night before a photo shoot?

Plenty of sleep, of course, and lots of hydration!  Anytime you have a photo shoot the next day, it’s important to take the time to properly remove your makeup, hydrate your skin, and get plenty of rest, although sometimes models with busy schedules may not be able to sleep as much as they would like.  That’s where makeup artists’ work comes in, sometimes using sheet masks or under eye masks to revive tired skin. The night before a photo shoot is NOT the time to try new skin care products or treatments or pick at your skin, as it will only look worse in the morning, leaving the makeup artist with little choice but to add a lot of concealer.

3) What is your favorite summer makeup trend?

My favorite summer trend for 2016 is a natural looking bronzer and highlighter, or “nontouring”. This new term refers to the look that is the opposite of contouring.  Instead of heavy streaks of contour cream or powder topped with shiny highlighter (Hello Instagram!) this look is more “model who jet-sets from Ibiza to St. Tropez.  Her bronzer is subtle.  You Tube tutorial coming soon!

4) What in your opinion are the top three things a model can do to have good skin?

Great skin begins from the inside, which means that in order for your skin to be clear and have a glow, you need to have proper nutrition and hydration. Fruits and vegetables provided plenty of the vitamins and minerals essential for healthy skin, so if you don’t feel your diet is adequate, adding a fresh pressed green juice everyday can go a long way to achieving a healthy glow. Exercise helps eliminate toxins through sweating and also reduces stress, so a regular exercise routine that includes cardio and toning will help you maintain beautiful skin. And finally, a skin care routine that works for you and that you maintain on a regular basis. Making sure to properly remove makeup will really help your skin allowing for any treatment products like serums to penetrate. I am a fan of the double-cleansing method, especially for models who wear a lot of makeup on a regular basis. Double-cleansing involves removing makeup with an oil cleanser, and following that with a foaming cleanser or a milk cleanser to remove any residue and clean the skin, exfoliating dead skin cells.

5) How do you deal with summertime humidity on location so the model doesn’t look like a hot mess?

When humidity soars, the less makeup the better. Trying to cover the skin with foundations and powders will only lead to patchy skin as you sweat. Cover any imperfections with a waterproof concealer and coat lashes with waterproof mascara. I like to use waterproof eyeliner, like the Aqua Eyes from Make Up For Ever to add touch of color and fun for a summer look. Try lining eyes with a bright aqua eyeliner, add some bronzer, and finish with a lip stain or balm in a coral shade. Minimal fuss and gorgeous!
