2017 Makeup Trends

Image
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

Image
  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 o

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

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

Image
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

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

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 popula

Can You do Winged Eyeliner?

Image
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.

Have you shared any of your images with us? Remember you can on our Facebook page . In there you can ask questions, get feedback and share your win! Here is your challenge for DAY 4 ! Ready?   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

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.

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 !

I 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!)  TRY SOMETHING NEW  If YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR A SPECIAL DAY~ TODAY WAS THAT DAY!

5 Steps to Help You Create the Perfect Look

Image
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-

Candy coated lips, electric eyes and flawless summer skin The time of no-makeup makeup is officially over: It's the season for bright lips, electric eyes, contouring highlighter and false lashes. Always come here for the right trends to know. Regina Hall's bright fuchsia lipstick is a perfect color for spring  Bold red lipstick is classic,  but nothing says shade like a true pink bold lip Anytime a not so safe color pops up in a major way, You might say How do I wear that? The answer, when it comes to bold looks take a chance and wear it any way you desire.  Highlighting and contouring are two crafty li’l tricks that you can use to enhance your bone structure and make it look as though you’re constantly under the most flattering movie lighting possible.
