Get the Look! Art Harding Face & Neck Lift Kit demonstrated by Jeffrey Paul

Neck Lift
  •           Choose the kit that matches closely to your hair color, light for blondes and dark for brunettes. You'll be using the small inch and a half elastic in the kit.

  • ·        Clip your hair up away from your neck, so you have an all access pass where you'll be working.

  • ·        Use a toner to make sure the skin is clean and free of oils on your neck.

  • Remove the white backing on the tape and place the tape right behind the earlobe. Repeat on the opposite side.

  • Unclip hair to hide the band at the nape of your neck.

  • Viola!



Face Lift

  •           Choose the kit that matches closely to your hair color, light for blondes and dark for brunettes.

  • ·        You'll be using the longer 2 piece elastics in the kit.

  • ·        Clip your hair up at the crown in a half ponytail, this will make sense in a few moments.

  • Use a toner to make sure the skin is clean and free of oils on at your cheekbones near the hairline.

  • Remove the white backing on the tape and place the tape right under the cheekbone at the hairline. Drape the elastic over your ear for easy access.

  • Repeat on the opposite side.

  • Lift the elastics behind your head and position the elastic in place to the tension you desire. If the band slides you can use a bobby pin to secure it in place.

  • Release your hair from the half ponytail to hide the band.
  • Viola!

    Eye Lift

  •           Choose the kit that matches closely to your hair color, light for blondes and dark for brunettes.

  • ·        You'll be using the longer 2 piece elastics in the kit.

  • ·        Clip your hair up at the crown in a half ponytail, this will make sense in a few moments.

  • Use a toner to make sure the skin is clean and free of oils at your temples.

  • Remove the white backing on the tape and place the tape on your temple near the hairline.

  • Repeat on the opposite side.

  • Lift the elastics behind your head and position the elastic in place to the tension you desire. If the band slides you can use a bobby pin to secure it in place.

  • Release your hair from the half ponytail to hide the band.

  • Viola!

TIP: Does it feel too tight or uncomfortable? Remember, you can adjust the tension, sometimes a little less pull will make all the difference. There's no need to be uncomfortable or give yourself a tension headache! Now go out and show off your younger sleeker you!

Get the Look! ANGELA KINSEY'S MAKEUP

  •           Using CS Concealer Pallet #1 Sheila touched up beneath her eyes using #605-61 and toned down any redness using #601-18 and set the concealer colors using CS Colorless Loose Powder.

  • ·        Angela's foundation was a custom blended color using CS Ultimate Foundations in #507-45 and #302-65 and blended with the CS Foundation Primer.  Set, again, with CS Colorless Loose powder.

  • ·        The beautiful contours were achieved with CS Adobe blush and a dusting of CS Terra Blush warmed up the apples of Angela's cheeks.

  • Her lids were given a shimmer combination of CS Icy Flesh Eye Shadow and blended with the lighter CS Pink Champagne in the center of her lid and the inner corner of her eye.
  • Just above her natural crease CS Light Brown Eye Shadow was blended for a little drama.
  • Her brow bone has a soft sweep of CS Nude Eye Shadow for a soft highlight effect.

    Lashes were coated with black mascara.

  • Finally Angela's lips were slicked with a coat of Red Rose lipstick from CS Ultimate Lipstick Pallet #1 using a Kolinsky Sable #6 Flat Brush.

TIP: Use a makeup brush, we used Kolinsky Sable #26 Filbert, sprayed with CS Moisture Spray and gently brush over the final powder, to bring back the natural dewiness of the skin and rid yourself of a powder-y dry feeling.  Looks gorgeous on HD cameras!





Ru Paul's Drag U Episode 302: From Heroes to Hotties

Guest Professor Brittany Snow's Shimmering Glow & Lips
Get the Look by Cinema Secrets Artist Nina Darguzis


RuPaul's Dragu

Get the Look! BRITTANY SNOW'S SHIMMERING GLOW

  • ·         Tip over CS Hollywood Lights Shimmer in Flamingo Gold to sift the loose pigment into the top of the container.

  • ·         Load up a powder brush, we used CS Medium "O" brush, with the CS Hollywood Lights in Flamingo Gold and tap the handle of the brush on the counter or your wrist (Do not blow on your brush, this transfers germs and can cause break-outs).

  • ·         Dust the shimmer powder onto the skin paying attention to the collarbone, cleavage area, and shoulders.

  • Blend with the Medium "O" brush and smooth out the distribution of shimmer.
  • ·         Add a little of the same shimmer to the top of your cheek bones and blend!


TIP: CS Hollywood Lights Shimmer powders can be used anywhere on the body.  If you mix it with CS Tacky you can even create a bolder color and use it as shimmering body paint.


Get the Look! BRITTANY SNOW'S CUSTOM LIP SHADE COCKTAIL

  • Open CS Ultimate Lipstick Pallet #07 for all the colors used for this lip cocktail.
  • Using a CS Lip Brush pull out a small amount of CS Cognac Lipstick and apply to the lid of your CS Lipstick Pallet.
  • Use a tissue to wipe the brush clean and pull a small amount of the CS Natural Lipstick  and add to the Cognac on the lid.
  • Wipe the brush clean with the tissue again and add a small amount of CS Ginger Lipstick then blend the colors together.
  • Load up the CS Lip Brush with your newly mixed color and apply to the bottom lip from one end to the other.
  • Reload your brush and apply to the top lip from the middle of your bow to the outer corner of your mouth on either side.
  • Blot with the clean part of the tissue.
  • Leave the mix on the top lid of your pallet for touch-ups later in the evening and store your CS Lip Brush in the groove at the bottom of the pallet.  At the end of the evening, you can use a tissue to clean to top of your pallet for to re-cocktail a new color later!


TIP: Stop lipstick on your teeth by covering the handle of your lip brush with a clean tissue and sticking it in your mouth and pulling it through your lips.  This pulls off access makeup on the inner area of your lip that transfers to your teeth.  Now just toss the tissue and head out to dazzle them with those gorgeous colored lips!

Get the Look! ANTON'S SMOKY EYE

  • Apply CS Eye Primer over lid up to brow and just blow lash line. Let sit for one minute.
  • Apply a light shimmer or matte color of your choosing over the lid using Cinema Secrets Fluff Brush #4.
  • Close your eyes and apply a soft smoky color like CS Pewter Eye Shadow across the lid and blend off the edges.
  • Using a back and forth motion soften the darker shade and blend it with the other color.
  • Using black eyeliner, sketch a line across the top lid and lower lid to define the eye.
  • Use a cotton swab to smudge the liner slightly to give a softer look
  • Curl lashes and remember to pump the curler as you make your way down the lash for a more even curl.
  • Apply mascara to the top and underside of the lashes.

Great dark shadows to play with residing in the CS line: Plum Wine, Galaxy, Pewter, Taupe, Smoke, Twister Navy, Dark Brown, and Very Black.

TIP: Smoky eyes don't have to only use nude, black or grey, the lighter and darker shades can be any combination of your choosing. Smoky refers to the soft smoke-like effect the blended shadow gives.  Leave them feeling the heat of your gaze!

 

 

 

 

 

DRAG TIP OF THE DAY: Creating Cleavage with Professor Raja>
Get the Look by Cinema Secrets Artist Nina Darguzis

Get the Look! PROFESSOR RAJA'S CLEAVAGE

  • Use a light cream foundation to highlight between the breasts and blend the edges out. Raja is using #506-15 from CS Foundation Palette #06 with the CS Kolinsky Sable Flat #18 brush.
  • Using a dark cream foundation brush on either side of the highlight in a backward parenthesis shape to create contour. You can use the same brush you used to highlight. It will cancel out the lighter color. Again, blend to soften the edges. Raja is using #110-23A from CS Foundation Palette #09.
  • Add highlighter to the swell of the breast and blend the edges to create a natural look. Raja is using CS Kolinsky Sable Filbert #26 brush and CS Dual Active Powder in Tender Touch.


TIP: Make your illusion last longer, powder with cream with translucent powder for all night last-ability. Now go out and flaunt your new tatas!



Excerpt:

'One of my staple go to products in my kit is the Ultimate Foundation Palettes from Cinema Secrets. Cinema Secrets is a professional grade theatrical brand I've been working with since starting out. When people hear that I use a "theatrical" makeup they are sometimes unsure what the results will be. However, they are quickly put at ease when they see the wonderful blendable, buildable, oil-free coverage. The results are perfect texture and on point contouring - all from one palette! Love, Love, Love this stuff!'
