Laurel DeWitt and Cargo Cosmetics Head to the Disco for SS18

The designs of Laurel Dewitt transcend the idea of wearable art. At her show on Sunday evening, the makeup look created for her SS18 collection by head makeup artist, Griselle Rosario for Cargo Cosmetics, mirrored that level of artistry.
Her pieces have been spotted on some of Hollywood’s hottest celebrities including Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj and Britney Spears. Her creative vision for the SS’18 Dancing Queen collection hit the runway at The Church of the Holy Apostles on Sunday and didn’t disappoint.
DeWitt revisited the Disco scene, which was an epic time for fashion, with body suits, jumpers, and halters, while the 1970’s-inspired looks created by Rosario using Cargo Cosmetics consisted of dramatic, sexy eyes, pops of color and ultra-reflective, glittery looks.
THE BEAUTY LOOK
“For this show we took a trip to 70’s disco,” says Griselle Rosario, Head MUA at the Laurel DeWitt SS18 show. “I pulled inspiration from 1970’s photos, magazines and press clippings. We wanted the models to look like they were leaving the disco after a long night of partying. Sexy, smudgy lined eyes with big lashes. Bursts of color for spring with glitter and a lot of highlighter to create a beautiful, reflective sheen on the skin.”
BEAUTY BREAKDOWN
Create the Perfect Canvas:
  • “I love the Cargo HD collection” says Griselle. “It brings skin to life and is ideal for photography and video. We used the Cargo_HD Picture Perfect Liquid Foundation followed by the Cargo_HD Picture Perfect Concealer for spot treatment and to lighten and brighten under eyes. To set we used the Picture Perfect Pressed Powder.”
  • “We wanted the models to glisten like they had been out dancing all night. We mixed Cargo’s HD Picture Perfect Illuminating Palette with the Essential Lip Gloss in Umbria to give their highlight a wet finish.”
Statement Eye:
  • “For eyes, I covered the whole lid with the Swimmables Eye Shadow Stick in Morro Bay and then set with the NEW Emerald City Eye Shadow Palette. I love the colors in this palette! We used a combination of the shades Fremont, The Hill and Pier 52.”
  • “I lined the eye with the NEW Cargo_HD Picture Perfect Kohl Eye Liner. This liner is no joke! It delivers a jet black, inky finish which is beautiful for tight lining. Glides smoothly and won’t run. I filled in the waterline on top and bottom, created a cat eye and drew faux lashes on the bottom. The cat eye wing and the lashes drawn on the bottom lash line were then traced over with Cargo’s Liquid Eye Liner. Finished the eye with a few layers of the Boundless Lashes Mascara.”
Finishing Touches:
  • “To create those fun bursts of color I used the Swimmables Longwear Eye Shadow Sticks as my base. They are highly pigmented and once they set, they last through hot lights and photos! Paradise bay was the perfect color of blue. I increased the intensity of the pink using Cargo’s Swimmables Blush in the shade Ibiza. Finished by adding glitter on top – as you do for disco!”
  • “I filled brows in with the Brow Kit and did a mix of Essential Lip Colors in Umbria and Tuscany on lips. We skipped blush to keep the focus on the statement eyes.”

Mirenesse worked magic on my lashes

 

 

I consider my daughter a makeup expert. She is always aware of the latest trends, looks and quality of many types of make-up, especially the make-up she uses. She is most fussy about her mascara. She is enjoying her latest find, Mirenesse Secret Weapon Supreme 24Hr Mascara. As you can see from the photo, Mirenesse Secret Weapon Supreme 24Hr Mascara has created full and long lashes and I think they look amazing.

She likes the smooth formula as its key ingredients are Pantherol, organic waxes and is waterbased.  “This is a great mascara, it doesn’t clump, it’s easy to apply and doesn’t smudge.”

“Mirenesse” Secret Weapon Supreme 24Hr Mascara has an  Ultra-light Stretchable Elastic-Gel formula which will give you beautiful Glossy Length, Volume and base to tip Lash Lift.

My daughter also like the ”Bewitching Brush” (inspired by the shape of witches hat) she likes that it is tapered, allowing her to reach the smallest lashes on each end. The rounded wider part of wand allows her to create longer lashes.

Mirenesse is an Australian-owned company and their  products are all cruelty-free. At their website www.mirenesse.com you will find an array of mascara, and eyeliner to choose from. Mirenesse has worked wonders for her lashes and it will work wonders for you too!

The Plus Size Clothing Shopping Revolution

Thank goodness, gone are the days when a big percentage of American women struggled to find clothes to fit them. Women´s apparel retailers like this one are finally starting to sell plus-size clothes that are specifically designed for the curvier figure.

They are tapping into the fact that the average American woman is now a size 16. This means that there is a huge demand for plus size clothing.

Women everywhere are no longer prepared to buy clothing that makes them look like their grandma. They are sick of having little choice but to wear frumpy clothes. Fortunately, they no longer have to because the fashion industry as a whole is finally starting to cater for them.

Plus size models lead the way

This is very clear from the fact that the curvier models  that work in the industry are starting to get far more work than they used to. During New York Fashion Week alone, 27 plus size models appeared on the catwalks.

Much to the surprise of many, this trend also took hold in Europe. The Paris shows are well known for their crazily thin models, but this year things were different. Both Katy Syme and Stella Duval appeared in H&M’s see-now-buy-now show and they blew everyone else away. It was their photos that dominated the Twittersphere for hours after the show. Their appearance on the catwalks of Paris created a huge amount of interest that carried on long after the shows had finished.

New retailers and designers  

The fact that the traditional fashion industry has been slow to respond to the growing demand for stylish clothing for the curvier figure has opened the door for smaller firms to make their mark. For example, SimplyBe, the UK-based plus size fashion house, has found a big market in America. The almost instant success of firms like this has opened the eyes of other retailers to the potential for selling high volumes of plus size apparel.

The plus size blogger has played an important role

Evidence of the plus size revolution can also be seen online. There are some extremely successful bloggers working in this sector. Women like Callie Thorpe and Lauren Nicole are inspiring curvy fashion fans everywhere to blog about what they are wearing. Their posts are opening the eyes of many to the world of plus-size fashion and increasing demand in the process.

If you are interested in plus size fashion and are looking for bloggers to follow, just click here. There are some great US based bloggers on the list that you will find there, as well as most of the more well-known European ones.

The future of plus size fashion

The future for those who focus on this sector looks bright. Recent market research that has been carried out by NPD Group shows that sales reached a staggering $21.4 billion in 2016. With growth rates of around 6% each year, there is no sign of demand slowing down, anytime soon. Men´s big and tall fashion is also growing at a phenomenal rate.

The Right Blouse for any Occassion

Blouses are an important component of any woman´s wardrobe. Choosing the right one for the occasion is vital if you want to look good.

As you can see here, there are dozens of different styles to choose from. It is always nice to have a choice, but sometimes it can be a bit bewildering, which is why we have put together this post. Below are a few tips and tricks to help you to determine which kind of top is appropriate and buy one that fits you perfectly.

A good work blouse

A lot of us like to wear a suit or skirt in the workplace. Dressing like this makes it easy to look smart and the fact you can take the jacket means you do not have to sit there feeling uncomfortably hot.

Generally speaking, a formal style of blouse or shirt is the right choice for wearing with a suit. It is certainly the safe option. However, you do not always have to wear a plain shirt with a collar. Provided you choose wisely you can just as easily wear a lightweight top under a plain suit. You just need to make sure that when you remove the jacket your top is still modest. It is very important that it is not so thin that your bra can be seen underneath. You also need to make sure that when you bend over you are not showing too much cleavage.

A blouse for your holidays

When you go on holiday try to buy lightweight blouses. They take up less space in your case, and, importantly, are less likely to crease. If you choose one that is made from a fairly thin manmade fabric you can normally rinse it out and get it dry again within a couple of hours.

A blouse for a night out

A night out gives you the chance to kick things up a notch and buy something a bit brighter, and maybe a little more daring. If you can, try to buy the type of blouse that can be worn with more than one outfit.

A blouse for a special occasion

For a special occasion, like a wedding, it is worth spending a bit more money. Potentially a nice cotton blouse can be worn later for work or meals out.

If you opt to buy one in a luxury fabric like satin or silk the chances of your being able to wear it again are slim. However, that does not mean that you should not buy one. You can usually sell them online and get much of your money back. Just be sure to sell it immediately after the event. That way it will still be considered fashionable when you are trying to sell it. This greatly increases your chances of getting a good price for it.

Getting the fit right

Regardless of the type of blouse you choose, it is important that it fits well. This pdf explains the correct way to measure yourself for a top or shirt. It really is worth reading and putting what you learn into action. If you follow this advice you will always look smart and well-groomed.

FACE Atelier hides the dark circles for glowing skin

You would never know it by looking at this very small plastic container, but you will find inside, a dual tone concealer that packs a big punch. FACE Atelier was tested by my daughter and she got some fabulous before and after photos of what Face Atelier can do you you. (The photos are untouched and she tried to keep the lighting the same).

On this particular day, she noticed she had some dark color under her eyes. I asked her to try FACE Atelier’s Ultra Camouflage Duet and the results were stunning.  With careful application and a little practice, her dark color almost completely vanished. ThisUltra Camouflage Duet concealer has two color-matched shades that that perfectly if you have the right shade for your skin tone.  

The silicone in the formula guarantees that it will not flake, dry or crack. The finish is smooth without any makeup buildup. You ca apply your face powder and/or makeup right over the concealer as usual.

Another key ingredient in  FACE Atelier’s Ultra Camouflage Duet is Petrolatum. as stated at their website: “Petrolatum is considered to be among the most effective moisturizing ingredients available and is also known for its effectiveness in healing wounds. It can help the skin’s outer layer recover from damage, reduce inflammation, and generally heal the skin. Cosmetics-grade petrolatum is considered the safest, most non-irritating moisturizing ingredients ever found.”

FACE Atelier’s Ultra Camouflage Duet is oil free, fragrance free, non-comedogenic and vegan. You can find it at www.faceatelier.com. At the web site you will also find pro tips which will help you get the best possible look.

Photos say it all, don’t you think?
