NYE: Our Top 5 picks for your MAKEUP look

DEVEZIN BEAUTY 

How to Keep Your Lipstick On Longer 
Take a tissue and separate it into two halves. Place one sheet on your lips and dust a translucent powder or HD Powder over the lips, through the tissue. This is a trick you'll see makeup artists doing backstage at fashion shows.  This sets the color, without depositing a layer of powder.
Lightly apply a bit more lipstick and your lip color is ready to go the distance!


How to Perfect Your Highlighter
Using your finger tips or a small soft brush apply the highlighter right underneath your brow bone and blend. Sweep the highlighter down the bridge of your nose with a soft brush. If you’d rather not bring attention to your nose, you can use whatever is left on your brush from the previous step for just a hint of shimmer.

Here’s where most people make a mistake—highlighter should go above your cheekbones, not on the apples of your cheeks. Dip a wide, soft face brush into the highlighter, tap off the excess on your wrist, and apply it above your cheekbones towards your temples in a sweeping motion. 

Liquid or gel formulas can be blended in with a brush or your fingers, depending on the finish you prefer.

Shimmering Brows: If you want bold brows, just comb a little glitter through them. Now your face matches the night sky.


How to  Keep Your Mascara from smudging 
Primer serves as a foundation to hold your mascara in place, reducing the chance for bleeding and smudging. When you use primer, wait for it to dry before applying your mascara to get more staying power.

How to Keep Your Falsies on longer
You can add a second layer of glue AFTER your false lashes are placed. After they have set and are right where you want them, run a second, thinner layer on top. This helps to make sure they are going to stay put! You can run your eyeliner over the top of the glue after it dries to help keep it hidden.

Pack your Makeup bag 
At just under 9x9", try a playful pouch that's big enough to hold all your daily makeup essentials but small enough to fit comfortably in your purse.


Hint of GlitzYou don't need five pounds of glitter to make a statement. Instead, apply it on the outer corners of your eyes to add a little extra light.

Carry an emergency kit

Be sure to include cotton swabs, concealer and mascara in your makeup bag wherever you go. This way you can make on-the-spot touch-ups.

Get Ready for Summer

Trade in your boring for this aqua. Watch it transform everything.
One of the easiest ways to update your makeup bag each season is to add in current color trends. And while it’s probably inadvisable to replace your whole makeup kit with a fleeting palette-du-jour, adding a few fresh products can go a long way. Accessories, especially, are a smart way to incorporate timely hues, and many of us switch those up anyway. One prime example: A new eye-shadow in lilac is a stylish asset that can take you through spring and summer. Follow our social media to see the color trends to know about now, along with impactful products in each category. If you can’t decide which you’ll use most, we recommend one of the featured Devezin products, which are as functional as they are fashionable.
A travel-ready tote is your best friend during the warmer months. You’ll have this one forever since it’s water-resistant and easy to clean.

With summer here, it's time to reach for the sunscreen. But not everyone is convinced that skin protection is a necessity. "Older adults grew up at a time when unprotected skin exposure wasn't a cardinal sin, and many I talk to think a little sun is good for them. But older adults are actually at an increased risk for skin cancer, since their skin is no longer able to repair damage as efficiently as it once did. 

A strong sunscreen and sun-protective clothing can help keep you safe this summer and every day of the year.

When a label promises the sunscreen will prevent skin cancer, it has passed the broad-spectrum test. This shows that a sunscreen can protect your skin from both UVA and UVB radiation. The labels have really made a difference and educated a lot of people.

MADE WITH NATURAL INGREDIENTS AND NO HARMFUL CHEMICALS: This Sunscreen formula is one of three on the market that is truly free of harmful chemicals and made with natural ingredients that are just good for your skin. As such, it is beneficial to your body just as much as it is protecting it from harmful radiation ...

Meet a man who’s championing ‘vegan beauty’ and empowering women

Whats in your makeup bag?

Who said there aren’t many cruelty-free and vegan makeup brands?! Now it's possible to find quality cruelty-free makeup for every budget, shop Devezin Cosmetics!

Eric Devezin is the founder and CEO of Devezin Cosmetics, a contender in the vegan beauty movement, and is empowering women to become independent.

I see many clients a week and have been doing so for years now. I am going to talk about my process today, now every artist is different but these are helpful tips that work well for me.


It’s important to really find out what the client is looking for. From experience I have learned that what the client thinks they want is not always what they will like. It is up to me as your professional makeup artist to read between the lines. A lot of clients like to bring pictures in to show what they are looking for. This can be helpful but do not expect the look solely like the images. Even though you may be attracted to the way the makeup looks in the photo you could also just like the overall look of the model, their hair color, hair style, face shape or outfit. Before we meet I recommend a client choose makeup inspiration photos of models with similar skin tone, features and hair color.

 Some additional questions I like to start with:


What event are you attending or what type of  photo shoot?

Finding out the event or shoot type will help to determine the appropriateness of the look. A boudoir shoot would be a slightly different look than an engagement shoot or family session. As a nighttime gala would be different from a daytime wedding or office party.

What are you wearing?

I ask this question not to match the makeup to the outfit as that approach can end up looking quite dated. I wanna better understand your style. You want to be inspired by the statement of the outfit and draw that out through the makeup.

  
While I’m working I briefly explain what I’m doing (not in too much detail but just to give you a general idea). I also say that you should feel very comfortable to tell me your honest thoughts when you see the finished look. Some clients can be worried about hurting a makeup artists feelings but no need to feel that way. Remember we are not mind readers, we do our best to create the look you think you want.

 
If you have thoroughly asked the right questions and drawn the right conclusions 9 times out of 10 you the client will be extremely pleased.  Keep in mind, when we are done, if there is an area you wish to darken or lighten let me know!

Here’s Exactly How to Choose Corrective Concealer

Devezin Hide it! Corrective Concealer

 

COLOR CORRECTING IN 3 EASY STEPS

There’s a reason that your under-eye circles or post-pimple redness are always just a little bit visible under your concealer: The blue and red tones inherent in those blemishes shine through your flesh-colored makeup. In order to hide them properly, you need to neutralize whatever color you’re trying to conceal, not just slather flesh-colored goop on top of it.




Color theory: Green is opposite to red on the color wheel, which makes them complementary colors. Complementary colors effectively cancel one another out, so if you put some green concealer on top of anything red (like rosacea, acne or scars), that redness is immediately neutralized. The best part? It’s totally easy to do: simply dab a little pale green concealer over any red blemishes you have, allow it to set, then cover it up with a very light application of your skin-toned concealer.

Color theory: Purple is opposite yellow on the color wheel, so pale purple concealer is perfect for concealing anything yellow or cooling down makeup that’s too warm-toned. Sallowness and hyper pigmented spots like acne scars can be effectively evened out with the slightest cast of lavender over them before adding your regular concealer over-top.

Color theory: Yellow is opposite to purple on the color wheel, which means that dark, violet-toned under eye circles don’t stand a chance. Simply apply under your eyes and blend well with a sponge or concealer brush, then cover with powder in the same shade as your complexion. You’ll end up with a subtly brightened under-eye area; for a more dramatically contoured look, apply powder a shade lighter than your complexion over the yellow concealer and watch your concealer turn into chic highlights.

If you have a darker or olive-toned complexion, you’ve probably noticed that your under-eye circles aren’t purple or blue; they have a greenish tint, and yellow concealer just isn’t cutting it for you. That’s where pink or salmon concealer comes in—red and orange are complementary to green and blue on the color wheel, so these shades are perfect for neutralizing your dark circles. To use this color, apply and blend the concealer over-top of your under-eye circles, then set with powder that matches your complexion. You can also use pale pink concealer as a gorgeous highlighter—add a little bit to the inner corner of your eyes, along your cheekbones, under the arch of your eyebrow and down the bridge of your nose. Blend well!!!

Its always nice to perk-up your complexion!

A new year is the perfect time to glam up your makeup routine! The easiest way to do so? Bottom eyeliner. Whether for a girl’s night out, Valentine’s dinner, or a fabulous date night, swap out your standard blacks and browns for these chic and festive options. Here’s how to rock gold, teal, and plum at your next soirĂ©e.

A touch of gilded color transforms the eyes from basic to bombshell
Beyonce, Mandy Moore, Katy Perry... it's hard to find a celebrity who hasn't rocked bottom liner last year — and we don't see the trend slowing down in 2018. The technique is one of the quickest ways to inject color into a look, while requiring virtually no makeup skills. All you have to do is use a shadow or liner in your preferred shade (I'm partial to teal) to line your bottom lashline. The result is a pop of color that simultaneously defines your eyes.

Devezin Loose Paints $16


Another trick to setting off a bold, underlined look? Keep your top lid understated. "When I use a strong shot of color on the bottom lids, I like to keep the top line smudgy with neutrals to not overwhelm the look, I stay in classic shapes and either use browns or blacks on top to give the look some balance. In the end, the neutral tones sort of fall away and the hit of color comes through.”
Tip: Let the top lid chill.


Following the shape of the black line, add a cream or gel bold liner right on top. We recommend Devezin Loose paints as shown above. The line should be the same thickness, or slightly thinner, than the black.


Line the lower water line (the inner rim of your lashes) in teal or turquoise. You can also opt for a long-wear pencil for added staying power. Use the color just on the bottom, where it will be more noticeable.



Lush lashes are the best complement to vibrant color, so load up on a voluminous mascara. Try my Devezin Natural Lush Lash Mascara.

For some, the fear of smeared liner is their biggest reason to forgo trying the trend. If that's you, simply opt for matte shadow, which will stay in place far better than a creamy liner. Just be ready for rouge shadow particles, so do your face makeup last.
