The Ins & Outs of How to Apply Liquid Highlighter
by Christine on September 23, 2019 at 3:00 pm
If you're just learning how to apply liquid highlighters, there can be a bit of a learning curve, especially if you're trying to get a more intense effect or if you tend to wear a lot of matte foundation or heavier coverage base products. Liquid highlighters share a similar application method as cream highlighters, but I've separated the two as they can be a little different at times. Where to Apply Liquid Highlighter Decide how you're going to incorporate liquid highlighter into your routine. Liquid highlighters are rather versatile; they can be mixed into your foundation, primer, or moisturizer for Continue Reading

Jessica Warburton's Tattoos Express Her Fandom and More Importantly, Her Courage
by dsimpson on September 20, 2019 at 8:29 pm
I've spent more than 600 hours in a tattoo chair, so deciding which tattoos I wanted to focus on for this story was a bit difficult. I have an incredible portrait of performer Lady Gaga, a sleeve full of Disney villains, a full back piece, and am currently in the process of covering the scars that cancer left me; these scars cover my entire abdomen and under my breast area, as I dealt with 12 pounds of ovarian cancer growth along with breast cancer.

Barbers Share Top Tips for Opening and Running a Successful Shop
by dsimpson on September 20, 2019 at 5:54 pm
Francesca Moisin Men’s grooming is booming, with predictions estimating this industry will hit a staggering $26 billion net value by 2020. The craft of barbering is experiencing an undeniable resurgence of cool as men come to care more about their hair. But while Forbes calls it among today’s fastest-growing national professions, opening a successful chop shop requires more than just investing in a stellar pair of shears. We consider the fundamentals of how to launch a modern brick-and-mortar that goes way beyond your grandpa’s barber shop. Location, Location Finding the right space starts by curbing egos and managing expectations. “Your first shop might not be a giant dream salon located on a high street; it’s important to be realistic about what you can a ord,” advises Matty Conrad, founder and owner of Victory Barber & Brand, with a product line and four barbering locations in Canada. Rather than straining wallets, sign a lease you’d be able to pay solo with existing bank funds in a pinch.Education
Grande Cosmetics Unveils its Latest Beauty Enhancers
by dsimpson on September 19, 2019 at 10:51 pm
Pucker up and bat your lashes! With a triple-threat lipstick derived from kiss me quick flower extract and a lash-plumping mascara with castor oil built into every swipe, enhancing your clients’ beauty has never been easier. “I established Grande Cosmetics with the vision that all women should feel glamorous every day and am committed to delivering beauty solutions that work with visible results—and these new launches are no exception!” says brand founder and CEO Alicia Grande. GrandeLIPSTICK Plumping Lipstick Plump from the Core: Made with a 3-in-1 formula that combines the moisture of a lip balm, the rich pigment of a lipstick and the transformative power of a plumper, GrandeLIPSTICK Plumping Lipstick “nourishes pouts from the inside out,” says Grande. GrandeLIPSTICK Plumping Lipstick took a year and a half to formulate and create. Grande made combining three lip products into one a deliberate time-saving goal and, though she found the formula challenging to develop, she was inspired by her own needs. “As an on-the- go woman, I always knew that I wanted to create a lipstick that combined all of my favorite lip products into one convenient product, and it took a long time to find the best ingredients to make that happen,” she explains. The plumper adds volume to any pout, working overtime to fill in lip lines and give the wearer a younger appearance. GrandeLIPSTICK Plumping Lipstick is available in five shades of pigmented, satiny finish. Performance-Driven Active Ingredients: • Kiss me quick flower extract: An anti-aging, moisturizing active that stimulates collagen production and contains volumizing properties. • Sucrose cocoate: Derived from coconut oil and beetroot; known for its nourishing qualities. • Hyaluronic acid: Moisturizes and improves firmness; helps plump. GrandeDRAMA Intense Thickening Mascara with Castor Oil A Show-stopping Solution: Grande and her team created the GrandeDRAMA Intense Thickening Mascara with Castor Oil following the success of cult favorite, GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum. After learning the messy ways that some clients were applying castor oil to their lashes, the brand took matters into its own hands, adding the superstar ingredient to a no-brainer product used daily: mascara. Granted, it took more than two years to develop the dramatic, no-flake formula from start to finish: “I tested hundreds of mascaras and worked with top chemists to find a formula that leaves lashes thick and luscious in one swipe, with a true buildable formula that doesn’t flake and is long-wearing,” says Grande. The result—thick, healthy-looking lashes—is the obvious payoff. Perhaps the most striking feature of the formula is the way it wears. Instead of mimicking other volumizing mascara formulas on the market, which can uncomfortably cling to lashes (making removal difficult and leading to lash loss), GrandeDRAMA Intense Thickening Mascara with Castor Oil glides off the lashes with ease when coupled with makeup remover. Bonus! The accompanying mascara wand boasts a design that combats clumping. The subtle hourglass-shape brush isn’t overly dense, allowing for maximum separation and volume. Performance-Driven Active Ingredients: •Castor oil: An omega-9 fatty acid rich in vitamin E; promotes stronger, thicker, bolder-looking lashes while preventing breakage. •Natural wax blend: Offers the perfect buildable formula. •Film-forming polymers: Improve gloss and shine. •Hemispherical powders: Reflective qualities that promote natural brilliance. Proven Results “There’s nothing better than a product that provides visible, long-term results; clients will love that they’re getting extra benefits from makeup they wear every day,” notes Grande. “These products are proven and studied to perform,” she adds—meaning your clients will come back for more. “GrandeDRAMA Intense thickening Mascara with Castor Oil and GrandeLIPSTICK Plumping Lipstick both feature results-driven formulas with powerful skincare benefits.” After applying GrandeLIPSTICK Plumping Lipstick: •100 percent of participants agreed lips felt moisturized* •90 percent of participants saw fuller- looking lips* After applying GrandeDRAMA Intense Thickening Mascara with Castor Oil: •97 percent saw dramatic lash volume* •94 percent saw thicker-looking lashes* *Results are based on a consumer perception study. Results will vary. These products are proven and studied by third-party consumer testing. Follow Grande Cosmetics on Instagram!

Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 572
by Karen on September 23, 2019 at 12:35 am
Tabs was a firm believer in flexibility, both in terms of dealing with surprises in his professional life (like the night we ran out of gravy), and with regard to his sumptuous body. Being a yoga master and a feline fitness champion, he understood the importance of stretching in being able to hit purr-fect kitty modeling poses. Needless to say, he took stretching very seriously — so seriously that his Extreme Tummy Shaping DVD from 2015 is still the bestselling feline fitness DVD of all time. And he credited stretching with helping him become the starting point guard for the Novato Warriors in the NKBA (National Kitty Basketball Association).

Saturday Surfing, September 21st, 2019
by Karen on September 21, 2019 at 3:09 pm
Reasons why Caturday is the best day of the week: Sleeping in (hopefully). For me, this means staying in bed till 6 or (GASP) 6:30, LOL! I like to sneak in a workout before Coy-Coy wakes up, and the best time for me to work out is the early morning; otherwise, it just doesn’t get done. That extra hour or half an hour of catching Zs, though? Priceless. You can catch up on your reading. (See the links below!) This weekend I’m reading that cookbook up above that I checked out from the library. Yup, that’s Snoop Dogg… 🐶 See, this is why I frickin’ love the library! You can find the most random things to read, and then you can take them home. FOR FREE. It’s such a weird pivot for the Doggfather (“Is this guy really gonna teach me how to cook lobster?”), but I like weird, so I’m going to go with it! And for some more reading… In this piece, Lady Gaga’s makeup artist, Sarah Tanno, talks about creating Gaga’s red carpet beauty looks, the influence of drag on her art, and what it was like launching Gaga’s new Haus Laboratories line.
