Eric's Fall Makeup Trends

Fall has arrived!  Keep some color in your makeup bag  like all of your colorful lipsticks, shadows, and colored mascara. These are easy products to go from Summer to Fall. Stay with a traditional gray, taupe, bronze, and plums for your shadow selections. You can still use the bright blue or electric purple from your summer makeup kit as an accent to your lower lash line.


Rich Ombre' lip: The trend ain’t over yet, ladies it's time to amp up the dramatic effect of your makeup and work a trendy ombré lip. The way to get a pretty plum pout with an ombré effect is by starting from the outside of your lips and working your way in toward the center. Start by lining your lips with a dark liner. Then, apply a similar lipstick shade without filling in the entire lip. Finish by sweeping on a lighter shade in the same color family on the inner section. Top that off with a clear gloss, and you'll have a fun, trendy ombré lip for the Fall season. And I always prefer brushes to apply, so I’d suggest working with a lip brush, too. For shades I like, Try  Devezin Cosmetics Natural Mineral Lipstick in “Obsession” ($14.50) , Devezin Cosmetics Natural Organic Lip Gloss in “Naughty” ($10), and Devezin Cosmetics Natural Lip Liner Pencils in "Mardi Gras" ($11).


Statement cheeks: A dark red lip can make you look washed out, if you let it. Don’t. A little color on the cheeks will balance out heavy lips while giving a pleasant post-coital look (not that I’m saying you aren’t getting it just fine on your own!). I prefer a powder blush for all seasons; because they’re generally a little sheer and translucent and you get to control how dramatic! Try Devezin Cosmetics Pressed Mineral Blush
  in “Glow" ($18.50). (see it at the end of this post).

A gold-toned highlighter also works well here to give an autumn-like, prancing-in-the-leaves glow. Use it on your cheeks, or take it to your lids or below your eyes. Try Devezin Cosmetics Mineral highlighting powder in "White Pearl” ($26).

  Smoky Eye: Black with a hint of sparkle can give that greasy, gothy sheen that makes people wonder about you. It’s super glamorous, but naughty, too. Bring out the jewel tones this Fall, we see a lot of jewel tones on the eyes, but you can transition the look into a more sultry style. To do this, bring the shadow down to your lower lash line, and to add more intensity, smudge a liner on top.

Opt for a cream shadow that won’t flake off. You’ll also need a good matte black shadow. Some of my favorites are Devezin Cosmetics Smoky Cream Gel Liner in “Absolute Black” ($11), Devezin Cosmetics  Fine Line Cake Liner in “Silence” ($12), and Devezin Cosmetics Ready-to-Wear Smoky Eyes shadow  Color in “18K Gold” ($10). (And check out my latest blog post Devezin Beauty Ask Eric, for a how-to tutorial on creating the perfect cat eye.)

If you’re not a super dramatic girl, or have small eyes, you can skip the heavy-duty black and instead opt for eye color in the just-as-dramatic burgundy/mauve category. I’ve been loving  Devezin Cosmetics Natural Organic Eye Shadow in “Earth" or "Canyon” ($10), Devezin Cosmetics Sheer Effects in “Champagne"  and "Pink Ice” ($16) and Devezin Cosmetics Long Wear Lengthening Mascara in “Chocolate” ($9).

3D Nail Art: 3D nail art is three-dimensional artwork created on the fingernails. Typically, the design is created on acrylic, or fake, nails, which are then applied over the natural fingernails. To create the designs, the artist adds colored acrylic to a mold using a paintbrush and waits for it to harden. Once the material is ready, the artist removes it from the mold and glues it to the fake fingernails. Non-acrylic options include gemstones and other materials small enough to glue onto the nails. What’s in are blues, greens, purples, oranges and, of course, grays, since we’re all so shamelessly obsessed with 50 Shades of Grey. Metallics are hot, including the metallic- and glitter-tipped French manicure, or the reverse: glitter nails with a solid tip. For shades, we like Essie’s “Head Mistress” ($8, My new go-to red), “Don’t Sweater It” ($8, gray), and “Stylenomics” ($8, dark green). We also love selection of colors from Pure Ice and Sinful Colors.

During the summer it was safe to keep it minimal with just a pop of color on the lips. Now that its Fall,  Its the perfect time to use those colors in a richer and darker shade. So if you wore a soft rose all summer, try trading it in for a bold burgundy or deep red-violet hue for Fall. And, of course — in general, and as always — play around with it, find out what works for you. But do try using makeup to create who you are, rather than just creating a look. Think: What do I want my fall to feel like? Then go and do it!

Brazilian Bikini Wax

An important step to prepare for a bikini wax is to avoid swimming or sunning oneself for a full 24 hours prior to the wax. After the waxing, you will want to consider the same for a couple of days. The skin can have some redness or bumping, which can be helped by ice. There is also the occasional ingrown hair, which can be iced, and then have anti-bacterial cream applied to ward off infection. Aestheticians recommend gently exfoliating the pubic area before the wax, and then doing so regularly after the wax to cut down on ingrown hairs. If you want to look your best in a tiny bikini, the Brazilian wax is the way to go. However, there are plenty of things you need to consider before showing up for your appointment. You need to get your body ready, but also consider your state of mind, particularly if it’s your first time. Avoid Trimming The ideal length of hair for the best bikini wax is between 1/8" - 1/4". Anything shorter will not deliver satisfied result…

Confessions of a Professional Makeup Artist

Whether I’m creating a natural, no makeup-makeup look or evening glam, how the face is prepped is key to a successful look. And while cutting corners can save time, there are a few must do's I always follow when applying makeup, and ones that happen before I even touch a brush to anyone’s face! Read on to check out the rules of beauty I rely on.

To ensure long-lasting makeup, always set your foundation. Whether it’s for a photo shoot or a celebrity client, I swear by the ULTA Makeup Setting Spray. I recommend the Mattifier Shine Eliminator option for those with oily skin, and Chill for those with dry or combo skin. And for those extra long nights, I suggest All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray to prevent makeup meltdowns. Tip: Mist setting spray onto your makeup sponge and gently tap onto the T-zone for a more concentrated application.
Always keep a nude, red and a brightly-colored lip stain in your desk, purse, or vanity at any time. In a pinch, you can add to cheeks…
