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!

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…

Get Ready for Summer

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.
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. …
