My dear dear friend and professional makeup artist mentor, James Vincent, shares his top 5 beauty product musts. Let’s prep our shopping list, shall we?!

Embryolisse, Lait-Crème Concentre

The makeup artist must have and cult favorite is perfect for any skin tone and skin type and keeps the skin looking refreshed and revived.”

 

MAKE UP FOR EVER, HD Elixir

My secret weapon for HD or everyday photo. It prepares the skin for foundation and makes makeup last all day while feeling like there is nothing there. If I could let my clients bathe in it I would.”

Yves Saint Laurent, Touche Eclat

A must have for every woman and every artist. This product is one of my favorite tricks for bringing light to the under eye and lifting and opening up every eye.”

Kevyn Aucoin, The Sensual Skin Enhancer

A little goes a long way with this foundation that can give light to full coverage and always look like skin.”

Stila Cosmetics, Convertible Color

Perfect for a natural flush or a fashion forward blush, I love this on the apple of the cheek or the cheekbone. My trick is to use some before foundation to give the illusion that the blush is glowing from beneath the skin.”

During Fashion Week I went backstage to cover beauty for Bright Young Things…you remember my previous coverage of BYT, right? They’re the super cool minimalist line of eco-friendly, multi functional pieces. Click here for previous coverage BYT on TTB.

….but back to Fashion Week. Backstage at the Bright Young Things show I had the opportunity to interview key artist James Vincent (for Youngblood Cosmetics) about his look for the show. Check check check it out!

The  love of my life, James Vincent, worked his magic backstage for Ed Hardy Swim at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami. Now clearly, I am not an Ed Hardy kind of girl but my love for James and MAKE UP FOR EVER compels me to report….

BACKSTAGE AT: ED HARDY

MAKE UP FOR EVER ALLIANCE artist, James Vincent (www.makeupforever-alliance.com), served as the key make up artist for the Ed Hardy swim show on Friday, July 16th.  James created a bold black eye and strong red lip for a glamorous, old Hollywood look.

Complexion & Cheeks: The skin was bronzed and dewy with highlights on the brow bone and high cheek.

Eyes:  To get a neutral base for the eye, James applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Eye Shadow #156 up to the brow bone.  He then created a thick rim around the top of the eye extending to the liner beyond the outer corner of the lid using MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Black, and he then went on to rim the lower lash line as well.  He finished by applying two coats of MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Smoky Lash.

Lips:  For a gorgeous pop of red on the lips, James applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream #8.

My dear friend, Celeb Makeup Artist and MAKE UP FOR EVER ALLIANCE member James Vincent recently recreated Joan Jett’s sultry make up look for the New York premiere of “The Runaways”.

Keeping with her rock n’ roll roots, Joan wore a classic yet modern smoky eye. James used MAKE UP FOR EVER products to create Joan’s smoking hot red carpet look. Of the look, James says this:

“the perfect Joan Jett eye takes subtlety, persistence and an understanding of what’s sexy.”

Below, my dearest James shares with ThisThatBeauty a breakdown of how to get your Joan Jett on. I suggest you hustle your tail into your local Sephora, gather a few MAKE UP FOR EVER products, and recreate the look for your next night out. Its a classic look that exudes subtle sex appeal!

Complexion: James kept the skin glowing and gorgeous with Make Up For Ever HD Elixir to add moisture to and perfect the skin. He then applied a small amount of Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation #117, which provided a great canvas, as well as the new HD Invisible Cover Concealer for light, luminous, natural coverage, and a touch of HD Microfinish Powder to keep Joan looking polished all night.

Eyes: “The eyes are Joan’s most famous feature and she knows exactly what she wants to do to draw attention but still keep the look modern and fashionable,” says Vincent. Start with Make Up For Ever Eye Shadow #35 from brow to lash to create the perfect base. Next, sweep Make Up For Ever Diamond Powder #11 gets across the brow bone for a beautiful highlight, and Make Up For Ever Eye Shadow #13 to bring depth to the crease. Use the same shadow to line the top and bottom lashes for soft diffusion of the liner, which gives depth and drama and keeps the hard-edged liner look smoky and sexy.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Eyes #0L is the perfect black pencil to apply inside the eye and along the top and bottom lash lines. Then, apply a bit of Aqua Eyes #2L to add a rich, brown warmth to the look and keep it from looking hard and typical. Smudge the pencil and set with MAKE UP FOR EVER Eye Shadow #139 for even more smokiness that works for every occasion. Lashes get extra attention with a liberal coating of MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash. And James says, “put the lash curler down and let the lashes stay straight and spiky for rock chick realness.”

Cheeks: Joan’s classic cheekbones are the type you wish you were born with, but can easily fake by contouring right below the bone from temple to apple with MAKE UP FOR EVER Eye Shadow #13. Keep blush natural by avoiding strong color. Just use a touch of Powder Blush #69 on the apple and Matte Bronze #2 at the highest point of the cheek bone give life and light to the makeup and balance off the strong eye.

Lips: MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Lip pencil #3C gives every girl the ability to keep their lips looking luscious without worrying about where it’s going to end up. A touch of MAKE UP FOR EVER Fascinating Lip Gloss #9 in the center of the mouth completes the look and lets everyone know you love rock n’ roll as much as Joan.

Here I am, using the aforementioned products, and giving my best Joan Jett. Am I even close? Leave a comment :)
