2017 Makeup Trends

From glitter eyes to arty liner and neon lips, we look forward to the stand-out beauty trends setting the tone for next Fall/Winter 2017. Beauty this season is filled with edgy romance, loose waves, plaits, and buns. While shades of pink enhance flawless dewy skin. Nontraditional  metallic makeup can be plenty of inspiration. Keep reading to find the beauty look of your dreams.
 
Glitter will be everywhere this fall season, spicing things up rather nicely, with subtle flecks appearing on the lids and also as a brow liner.
When it comes to the fall/ winter 2016-2017 eye makeup trends, one color sticks out most from the runways, from New York to Milan, London to Paris: the penny copper hue. It clearly appears all over and lends just a little bit of shading without overdoing it. You can wear it no matter what your plans for the day are.

Your Perfect Eyebrows

 
This season, beautiful and thick eyebrows are in again, and they are one of the hottest beauty trends. We here at Devezin Beauty have come up with this useful guide on how to make your eyebrows look absolutely gorgeous at home, without spending a fortune on salons.

The main goal here is to make your eyebrows look more natural, even if you’ve spent hours trying to get the perfect shape. Today, the global beauty industry offers a variety of different cosmetic procedures and services for beautiful eyebrows, including permanent eyebrow makeup and microblading (a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure which uses fine needles to create hair-like marks on the skin.) It’s all just a matter of taste, but if those procedures aren’t quite right for you, we suggest you choose a slightly harder yet very rewarding path ― creating your beautiful natural-looking eyebrows yourself.

Consider your face shape: Take your face into account when it comes to picking your perfect pair of brows. For example, if you've got sharp features, consider a rounder brow, which will help soften things. Alternatively, a round face benefits most from an angled shape, with a high peak to give a more youthful appearance and help draw onlookers' eyes upward. The only time you'd ever really go for a flat brow is if you'd like to shorten a longer face.
Consider the shape method: Get the ideal shape for your face every time with this easy-to-follow technique, which only requires an eye brush (or anything similar with a straight handle). Start with a brush placed along the bridge of your nose so it rests on top of the nostril and points up—it should sync up with where your brow should start. To find the tip, angle the brush from the base of the nostril to the outer corner of your eye. Finally, place the brush against outer edge of your nostril, angling it along the outer edge of the pupil to create the classic arch and adjust based on your face shape.
Finally: Before you head out with your perfect brows, you're gonna want to make them the center of attention. By highlighting brows not only help to define the shape, you should also add highlighter on the brow bone, giving you an instant face lift. Try a matte formula (rather than the shimmering kind) for a more natural look that's just one or two shades lighter than your current foundation. To apply, press tightly into brow-bone using a contour brush, working back and forth in a crisp line against the brow. Finish off with a coat of clear eyebrow gel to set everything in place.

#askDC: What's the hottest fall makeup trend? velvet lips!

Q: I have worn my makeup the same way for as long as I can remember, and I’m super-bored with my look! What’s an easy way to change things up for fall?  –Heather in Newport Beach


A: This season, it’s all about dark lips- vampy, gothic, boho lipstick can add a touch of edge to any girlie outfit or add sex appeal to a relaxed look -- No matter your style or intention, there’s a look for you! Even better: There’s no need to sweat the details for this versatile runway favorite, especially for work, play or a romantic date.

Of course, a little product power helps. For runway-ready looks, Eric Devezin recommends his Devezin brand because the products are constantly inspired by new styles.

Here are four great ways to master the fall velvet lip trend:


1. Stop putting dark lips in the same category as blue eye shadow or neon highlights. Deep colors can be as neutral looking as long as the rest of your makeup remains understated. 

A minimal approach is key, though you might throw some under-eye concealer, and an all over highlighter in the mix. I've found a deep lip can accentuate bone structure.

2. Its all over the runways, the choices are endless. Not only did we see deep lips paired with lace miniskirts at Burberry, embellished halter tops at Anna Sui, but this makeup trend was also all over spring/summer shows like Miu Miu, Givenchy, and many more. So go for it.

Even if you don't follow fashion, this sort of sweeping shift is hard to ignore.




 3. A stark, gothic looks great on tan and black skin. As skin tends to darken in the summer the contrast between your deep lip color and your skin tone becomes less stark. If you are very fair, I recommend creating a slight ombrĂ© with the darkest color at the center. That way the shade closest to your skin is less drastic.




Brighten your eyes with thick black eye liner and finish it off with a dark glossy red lip.




Hot tip! There’s no wrong way to wear your makeup. Today’s variety of makeup highlighters, concealers, glitter and powders can take your look from day to night in a snap.



4. There’s something really contemporary about these looks. The most pigmented of the dark-lipstick spectrum; the satiny ink lips and the patent-leather pout. The key to keeping the look out of scary territory is applying lipstick precisely and pairing it with a nearly bare face.



The lack of everything else is what really makes these velvet lips special. 


Because all eyes will be on your lips, give them extra care. Prior to applying your lipstick, exfoliate lips with a dab of sugar mixed with moisturizer, then run a soft brush around the mouth with a dab of concealer to obscure any faint lines. For the most precise application, use a lip brush for control.

Apply your lip color from the center and swipe outward toward the corners so it will be symmetrical. Follow with a similar shade of pencil, carefully sketching along the edges, or a clear wax pencil to keep color from feathering. Though a runway lip often features sharp, angular edges, for the real world, I suggest something softer, especially with darker shades.



5. Because BeyoncĂ©.  Need I say more?

Devezin Beauty Tip: When it's safe to get your lashes wet?

ANYTIME! No more waiting to shower, swim, or sauna after your lash appointment with Devezin Beauty.
For most of us, gluing on fake eyelashes is a standard lash solution. Forget that! This product, Devezin Beauty Bond Adhesive, can make your lashes so thick, long, and beautiful that you won't even have to use mascara, eyeliner, eye shadow, or any make up for that matter. In the past, we have evaluated many other eyelash adhesive formulas and everyone of them over promised and was basically just vitamins.
Top Lash artist Eric Devezin shares that there's no more waiting to shower, swim, or sauna after your lash appointment. Devezin Beauty Bond Adhesive is the only lash adhesive that is actually activated by water.


"I'd always been secretly jealous of the women I'd see in magazines who had thick, dark eyelashes and gorgeous beautiful looking eyes with richly thick eyebrows. I'd just assumed the photos were retouched... but now I know it's actually possible to get model-quality eyelashes and brows in real life!" - Barbara, Oakland, CA

Celebrities have been using Eric for years to get their eyes camera-ready. Especially when they're makeup-free and under the watchful eye of the paparazzi!

Get firm, soft, youthful skin with THIS one trick

While you should be staying out of the sun and snacking on blueberries, there are many more things you can do to ensure that your skin stays clear, smooth, and youthful when you hit an age where wrinkles and age spots are supposed to be part of your life.

Apply Turmeric All Over Your Face

Woman in India have been doing this for years. They’re doing something right, because the anti-inflammatory properties in turmeric soften the skin, clear acne, reduce swelling, and diminish wrinkles.
So, how exactly do you lather turmeric all over your face? By making a turmeric face mask, of course! Here’s how you can do this:

Mix together:
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
2 teaspoons rice flour (for oily skin) OR finely ground oats (for dry or mature skin)
3 tablespoons plain yogurt (or milk, cream, or sour cream)
Apply the mixture to your clean face, and then let it dry. After 15-20 minutes, rinse it off. Try doing this once a week, and if it goes well, increase the frequency to every day or every other day.

If sugary foods are a staple of your diet, you may want to reconsider what you eat. When sugar breaks down and enters the bloodstream, it bonds with protein molecules, including those found in collagen and elastin [the fibers that support skin], through a process called glycation. This degrades the collagen and elastin, which in turn leads to sagging and wrinkles.

Preventive measures: Drink as much water as you can; avoid alcohol and salty foods, which are dehydrating; and apply a rich moisturizer with SPF 15 or higher 30 minutes before going out, as sunscreen needs time to be absorbed before it’s effective.

Set a goal for yourself
I will stick to a 7-day eating plan to replace all unhealthy food with healthy food in my diet.

When wearing lipstick, you’ll appear more competent in a professional setting

While I would never suggest you wear something — cosmetics or otherwise — that serves the sole purpose of attracting men, it’s interesting to note that guys really do notice your small efforts, especially bold lipstick. Not only did a focus group show that waitresses wearing red lipstick received higher tips from men, but another recent study found that women wearing red lipstick were approached in bars more frequently. Yet another study on the matter found that red lips would be associated with an indication of estrogen levels, sexual arousal and health, which in turn led to increase the positive perception of the face. When you know men are looking your way, it’s hard not to feel better about yourself.
Sure, it might seem vain, but sometimes a little vanity can help us find self-worth. And that’s OK.


But even more guys we surveyed said they dig a girl who can pull off lipstick.


Red lipsticks are associated with passion, seduction, and flamboyance. Made popular by Hollywood actresses like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor who flaunted their red lips with panache. Red lipsticks have stayed the rage with women. Most women wear red lipstick because nothing catches attention like it. However, a bold statement equals confidence. Lastly, make sure that it goes with the outfit you pick or the result can be disastrous.

Can You do Winged Eyeliner?

If you are obsessed with all things beauty but unsure of where to turn for guidance and inspiration, this is for you. Think of me as your guide, letting you in on how to finally conquer your fear of the magic marker felt tip liquid liner and embrace the wonder that is winged eyeliner.
It seems some of you are eyeliner-wielding masters, waving your gel, kohl and liquid wands to create perfect works of art with just a flick of the wrist. All the while, the novice has a rough time simply tracing their lash line. Old Hollywood starlets and cat-eye predecessors like Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor, started the winged eyeliner look. 
 
As with any issue, the first step is admitting you have a problem. We are looking for real women to participate in our eyeliner tutorials . And just like riding a bike, eventually your hands will catch on and YOU will be able to create a beautiful, svelte wing all on your own--in under a minute.

Summer Beauty Challenge Day 4: Get your glow on

By the summer, nothing makes us feel quite as confident as glowing, radiant skin. But the truth is, we don’t always have the time (or energy) to spend on the perfect faux tan. That’s why I'm giving you the latest and greatest bronzing techniques that will accommodate any busy schedule, whether you have a week to prep for a special occasion or just a few minutes to fake a sunny getaway and (yes, it’s possible).

Summer is about baring skin and showing off the beautiful (fake) summer tan you have. But in order to look good baring that skin, you need to take some time to ready your skin and reverse the signs of neglect you showed your skin during fall, winter and spring.

You have so many choices when it comes to adding a little summer tint to your skin, and the tanning bed shouldn't be one of them. Using a sunless tanner will give your skin a beautiful start to summer. Even if you're not a fan of sunless tanners all over your body, you can happily use them just on your face. If you alternate your facial moisturizer with one that builds a bit of color, you'll have a healthy glow that will make it look as though you just spent the weekend on the beach. Most facial tanners build color gradually, and by alternating with your regular moisturizer you're skin will maintain a natural looking glow.


Throw away your unused sunscreen for a new bottle. Sunscreens aren't meant to last forever, and seeing as most people don't use as much as they should I bet you have a bottle or two stored away. Be safe and pick up a new one. And don't forget the most important sunscreen advice: USE IT. You should be using a shot glass full for your body, and a full teaspoon just on your face. Reapply every 1-2 hours that you are in the sun to ensure a summer full of safe sun fun.

Summer's only a few weeks way, so you still have time to prep your skin to get that summer glow! The summer is the opportune time to refresh your skincare regime, as you should do every season.

Follow these tips for glowing skin, and you'll be ready for summer in no time


There is nothing more beautiful than a natural looking Summer glow.  Its the best time of year

I’m so excited you've decided to join us again :)
This will be a FUN and HELPFUL challenge that will allow you to enjoy a polished and sharp look. Isn’t that fabulous?
Here is your challenge for DAY 3!
Ready?
Summer Beauty Challenge Day 3: Create a fabulous look
Let's face it, we all want to look back on our pictures and think, "Wow I
looked fabulous!". But, the truth is smokey raccoon eyes and lipstick
stains on our teeth are not memories we want to relive. So ladies, here's the scoop on makeup tricks and tips you should know to look fabulous in selfies.
Believe it or not your makeup does have a huge impact on your
appearance in pics, from the smallest to the biggest details.

To look good in your selfies, you need to always blend in your makeup.
For example if you want to hide the dark circles under your eyes, be
sure to blend it in with the concealer to get rid of any white makeup
patches under your eyes in the pics. Yes they show! What's also very
important to consider is using a brush for blending, works like magic
and gives you a much better result than applying foundation with
your fingers.

Smiling is by far the most important makeup tip to look good in selfies.
When you smile, your face shows off your perfect you.

 Wear colors that makes you feel faboulus 

 Look Good & Feel Good!

SUMMER Beauty Challenge [DAY 2]

How is it going? How are you feeling so far?
Here is your challenge for DAY 2!

Ready?



Summer Beauty Challenge Day 2: Wear a color you haven't worn in a while
It is easy to fall into the routine and wear the same blush  and eye shadow colors again and again. Today let's make a conscious effort to choose a color you like, but haven't worn in a while. Do you like red, orange, aqua, fuchsia? Let's do this!  
A coral eye shadow will never work without a healthy dose of confidence. Never pick a color like that and half-ass it. If you’re going for a bright, out-there color like orange or yellow, you have to commit to it. That means not blending it out until it’s so sheer that you can barely see it. Make sure it’s a strong color.


Wear a color you haven't worn in a while


                                  Rule 1: Own It!

say you take that new item out of the box or bag and apply it now. It is not
about being afraid of new stuff. It is about wearing something that makes you
feel good (and looks good of course). When you feel good, you feel
grounded and your day flows better. Just like when you eat right, work
out or do meditation. Try it! (Just trust me!)

5 Steps to Help You Create the Perfect Look

Something I hear from my clients over and over again is “I want to wear 'everyday' makeup, but don’t know how.” Some claim they really don’t know where to start when it comes to creating a daytime look. For this reason, I have outlined five easy steps to create the perfect look for any occasion.

Step #1 – Planning and Organization:
Whenever you are going to create a makeup look, ask yourself these questions:
What am I doing?
Think about the activity (watching a movie, talking to a crowd, sitting at a desk).
Are you going to be sitting down or walking around?
Where am I going?
The place is important. What’s the dress code? Do you need to wear a scarf, hat or take an umbrella, sneakers, heels? Do you need a change of clothes?
What do I want to project?
Do I want to look stylish, conservative, avant-garde, empowering?
How do I want to feel?
Do you need to wear lipstick only, mascara only perhaps? Do you want to feel relaxed? Is it important to feel put-together?
How’s the weather?
Is it raining, hot, cold, humid?
How am I getting there?
Am I walking to this place? Riding with a friend? Taking the metro or Uber?
After considering all these elements, move to step #2.

 Step #2 – Laying the Foundation:
To look fresh-faced, apply base only where you need it—around the eyes, nose, chin, and over redness or dark spots.Once you have decided on the base, then take step #3.
 
Step #3 – Add Contouring:

The first thing most people want to contour are the cheekbones. To start, try receding the hollow of the cheek. You can find the hollow of cheek right underneath the cheekbone—there, apply your darker low-light shadow using an angled medium or large brush. Every area you low-light, you want to balance with a highlight. After receding the hollow of the cheek, counter that by making cheekbones stand out. To do that, brush on a frosted gloss or light shadow along the cheekbones, and blend out toward the temple.

A basic strategy to slim down the nose just a bit (which remember, may not work on every face). For the nose, use the same low-light shade you used for cheeks. Start at inner corner of brow and apply down either side of the nose. Next, apply your highlight down the bridge of the nose and always use a matte product, even for highlighting. Finally, blend the two together using a brush.

To make the eyes pop in two simple steps, start with your low-light. Apply into the crease of the lid and blend well. Then, come in with a highlight, brush right along the brow bone.

To low-light, apply your darker shadow below the jaw along the jawline, right where the jaw meets the neck. Then blend down into the neck using a clean brush, so you don’t have a line of demarcation.

Lastly, highlight right on top of the jawline, and blend together. Be careful not to go all the way around to the chin here. You want to highlight on the sides, along the mandible.Once you have that covered, take step #4.
 
Step #4 –Primer, Concealer, Blush, Lip-gloss and Lip-liner:
Why bother with primer? it fills in lines, smooths an uneven texture, and holds foundation in place. So when you need your makeup to last all day (and look amazing), apply it over moisturized skin before your base. On time-crunched mornings when you want to keep it simple, you can even wear primer solo it also corrects skin issues, so you can control shine, get a glow, hide redness—whatever you need!

Use concealer over foundation on circles and spots to perfect everything. Especially, if you’re in a rush, just dab concealer where you need to erase skin imperfections without heavy coverage.


Wake up your face with blush or bronzer. Smile and apply color to the apples of your cheeks in circular motions. Make sure it doesn’t sit directly under the eyes—that screams too much. Pro tip: use a fan brush to sweep bronzer where the sun would hit your face (cheekbones, nose, and jawline).

For eyes apply shadow then liner then mascara. This is the order to follows for applying eye makeup. Always go back and layer. You can always add a little more liner at the lash line, an extra pop of shimmer shadow in the center of the lid, etc.

Your lips may need balm first, then liner, then a neutral lipstick, and of course, use gloss only if you want!





Step #5 – The Final Touch: Glitter
Add some sparkle and personality to your look with glitter or shimmer.
