Diorific Vernis Holiday nail collection

Diorific Vernis Holiday nail collection is the new couture for nails!

Dior-Golden-Shock-collection-Holiday-2014

These limited edition colours come in 4 colours, Mirorr delicate pearl, Gold Equinoxe, metallic pearl, Shock, a vibrant red and Smoky, a deep purple. Pair any of these colours with the exclusive gold leaf effects top coat and Diorific Vernis electrifies the colour to new heights.

Diorific Vernis nail colours retail for C$31.00

We are obsessed with the Gold Leaf Effect Top Coat. The golden leaves symbolize the opulence, festivity, audacious femininity, and the spirit of Versailles, and that has inspired Christian Dior and his creations since 1947.

#BEAUTYNOTE:

Dazzle for the holiday festivies with Diorific Gold Leaf Effect Top Coat by simply painting overtop of any nail colour. Wear the top coat on its own for a sophisticated golden glitter.

Get the look: Selena Gomez at the 2014 American Music Awards


Screen Shot 2014-12-16 at 2.22.22 PM

Selena Gomez looked SO good while preforming her newest single “The Heart wants what it wants” at the 2014 American Music Award’s.

For her walk down the red carpet, Selena wore her hair in a low bun and a bold rep lip to match her dangling statement earrings. For her face, Makeup artist Jake Bailey used NYX’s Illuminator in Chaotic to highlight parts of her face like her cheekbones. Jake used the NYX Dream Catcher Palette in Dusk Till Dawn on her eyes and created a beautiful bronze haze and finished it off with a sophisticated lip using NYX Simply Red Lip Cream pencil in Leading Lady.

For her performance, Selena kept the same makeup on but switching her lip colour to match her light nude-pink dress. She changed her hair from up to down with long extensions in and her hair with light curls and two front pieces clipped up.

Kendall said in an earlier interview “I grew up using Estee Lauder. I saw my mom using it when I was a kid.” “For me to grow up with it, and then to be working with them now, it’s so incredible.”

#BEAUTYNOTE

When asked by fellow Estee Lauder spokesmodel Joan Smalls, how to get the perfect selfie. Kendall explained;

“Lighting is a big thing. If you’re not in the right light it just won’t work. I’m not into using too many filters, either. I like to keep it pretty natural — or black and white is always cool. But above all, you have to know your face: everybody has their good side. And practice! Practice makes perfect.”

The making of Spirit Animals at NightShift WR !

The Beauty Team started off November with the opportunity to be a part of Kitchener’s second Night Shift 2014 event! The event is a nuit blanche-style festival of art, culture and nocturnal adventure!

image

We had a lot of fun executing creative makeup looks on the models from Gemini. Special thanks to JVT Photography for beautifully capturing these photos.

image

This particular look was spirit animal inspired, and I just put my own spin on it! I used a TON of feathers and applied them with lash glue. The rest of the face I mainly used the MAKE UP FOR EVER Flash palette to create the fur like makeup.

image

BeautyNote: 
Always set liquid or cream makeup with powder so you don’t get creasing or smudging!

image

Makeup Artist, Krys (thebeautyteam.) also created some amazing spirit animal looks, with really defined contours and brows!

Night shift 2014 was such a fun evening bringing out our inner creativity with these Avant Guard looks! We hope to be a part of this fabulous annual event next year!

Lucky for us we got the scoop from our friends at Almay. Makeup Artist Melissa Schieicher kept Carrie’s makeup Timeless and Classic applying only subtle tweaks to her makeup through the night.

 
#GetTheLook
Step One: Face

♥ Apply one pea size pump of the Almay smart shade cc luminous primer to your T-zone. Using your fingers, blend out the remaining product going outwards towards your hairlines.

♥ Apply the Almay Smart Shade Skintone Matching Makeup all over your face to get a flawless base using your fingers or a brush.

♥ Using a powder Puff or a brush, buff the Almay Smart Shade Skin Balancing Powder all over the face to set the foundation and remove oils from the t-zone.

♥ Applying the Almay Smart Shade Blush in Pink and Nude, on the apples of the check and up the check bones will give you the perfect flush of color.

Step Two: Eyes

#BeautyNote
Makeup Artist Melissa Schieicher added more definition to Carrie’s eyes by wetting shimmery eyeshadow to intensify the pigment and give off long lasting dewy shine.

♥ Use the Almay Intense I-color Smoky-I Kit in Blue and Hazel in the crease along with the Almay Shadow Softie by Intense i-color in Hot Fudge.

♥ Applying Almay Intense I-color Eyeliner in Brown to the water line will open up your eye and make them look bigger.

KISS Nails beauty blogger event

Last Monday’s KISS beauty blogger event, put together by ROI relations was a lot of fun! Our nail techs applied KISS and imPRESS nails and trendy nail art to beauty bloggers that attended the event.

New York based Celebrity/Editorial manicurist, Gina Edwards (@ginaedwards10), is the creative mind behind the products, She was there hosting the event, sharing a few pro nail tips and meeting with everyone. She is lovely and was so fun to work with. thebeautyteam_events.jpg
KISS just launched a gel based nail glue that is amazing for applying their nail art. No more slippery glue with your crystals sliding off your nail before they are set! Finally a product that brings ease to salon styles that can be applied in the comfort of your own home.

The most popular were the imPRESS self adhesive nails in turquoise . They are super shiny but no sparkle and the accent nails have a great black, red and white pattern on them.

My favourite were the imPRESS self adhesive nails in Coral. They also come with sparkle and accent nails so you can use them in different combinations.

#BeautyNote:

Always prep your nails correctly using the prep pad (included in kit) to clean the nail bed before applying the false nails.  This will ensure proper adhesion and prolong wear.

The new KISS french manicure was also a popular choice.  The classic nail style requires glue to apply and like gels, they need to be soaked off for removal. All the nail sets come in different shapes and sizes so they fit any nail bed, plus they are a great base to add nail art!

KISS and imPRESS nail products are available at Walmart and Target stores.  If you’re a nail art fanatic, be sure to check out these new styles coming soon to a store near you!
