Beauty from the inside out !

Written by Michelle Dubé Images courtesy of Vita Glow

We all know a beautiful makeup starts with beautiful skin. Prepping the skin before a makeup is just as important at the makeup itself and for this reason, good skincare is essential. Introducing Anna Lahey, the glowing, sparkling owner of Vida Glow. Vida Glow is an incredible range of skin and all over health products with ingredients including Marine Collagen.

Anna first discovered marine collagen while on holidays in Japan. She noticed collagen supplements were readily available in Japanese pharmacies and supermarkets, collagen drinks were available at the gym and she was even asked at a restaurant if she wanted her soup infused with collagen! After noticing the amazing skin of Japanese women she decided to do some research into it’s health benefits.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, which slowly decreases with age, so it makes sense that replenishing our collagen levels has amazing benefits for our skin, hair, nails and health in general.

From this philosophy the Vida Glow range grew to include plant-based function beauty products with active ingredients.

Anna’s inspiration when creating her skincare range was the memories she had of her mum’s own skincare routine. She remembers the beautiful smells from the creams she used and the lovely textures. She has used this inspiration to recreate that experience into her own range.

The Vida Glow range is beautifully packaged in light pink with a rose gold trim. I particularly like the moisturiser, which is packaged in a pump container, which means the contents remain untouched making it perfect to use in your kit as the contents remain sanitized. It is light in texture and quickly and easily absorbed into the skin making it perfect as a base for a makeup application. It is also calming on the skin.

The other product perfect to include in your skincare prep is the Vida-Glow exfoliator. It is a gentle exfoliator combining non-abrasive particles of jajoba beads and bamboo that work gently to resurface the skin. The exfoliator is applied to a clean and dry face, which makes it perfect to apply in the makeup chair. After massaging with the fingertips, the exfoliator can be rinsed off leaving a fresh, clean skin – the perfect base for the rest of your makeup application.

The Vida Glow range is Australian certified organic, 100% Natural, Vegan, Non-GMO, with no soy, no fillers, no added sugars and no artificial ingredients. Vida Glow is made in Australia and we love to support our Australian beauty artists and business owners.

The Vida Glow range also includes supplements and protein powders, waters and Beauty bars!

TOM FORD “Boys & Girls” Lipstick Collection

Written by Michelle Dubé, Images courtesy of Tom Ford Beauty

When you think about Tom Ford, you think clean crisp fashion, yachts, the isle of Capri, glamour and champagne so when Tom Ford Beauty launches a new lipstick line, you just know It’s going to be good! This new line called “Boys and Girls” is a collection of 50 clutch sized mini lipsticks, named after the people who are most special in his life.

The collection includes 15 new boy and 15 new girl shades from muted to bold, elegant to glamorous and everything in between.
These shades are designed to be worn on their own or layered together. Finishes are creams, matte, metallic, sheer and ultra rich.

TOM FORD is a designer who is as famed for his own personal style as much as his fashion design and the packaging on these mini lipsticks does not disappoint. Boys names are in black cases and girls are in white. All cases are surround with a beautiful metallic gold that just looks and feels so expensive.

High end Bridal clients would love to see these as an addition to your makeup kit and retailing at only $50 they are a great price and perfect size to offer to your brides as an add on to your service.

My favourite is Mason, a divine pink/mauve shade that is super creamy and luminous and just glides on. Mason, I don’t know why you were so special to Mr Ford, but I’m so glad you were!

The Tom Ford Boys and Girls collection are available at selected David Jones, Myer & Sephora

Real Techniques Brushes

Written by Michelle Dubé

More and more, we as Makeup Artists are being asked to have vegan alternatives in our kits.  This is why it was so exciting to attend the event hosted by Real Techniques brushes and learn more about their cruelty free brushes.

Real Techniques brushes are designed by pro makeup artists Sam and Nic. The sisters have a combined 30 years of experience, both starting their careers as makeup artists soon after their sixteenth birthdays, working countless fashion shows, red carpets, editorials and collaborating with some of the top fashion photographers and magazines in the world. I love products designed by working makeup artists because they are always looking to solve the problems of pro artists.

The Real Techniques brushes have Taklon bristles and are ultra smooth and soft.  Since Taklon is synthetic it is 100% cruelty-free.  Each brush head is hand-cut to the perfect shape and remain true to shape even after continuous washing.

Real Techniques are good quality, affordable brushes.  I have a quite a few in my kit that are my ‘go-to’ brushes, such as the detailer brush and the lip brush.  They pick up a good amount of colour, blend beautifully and wash well.  Because they are synthetic they are quick to dry which is important when you have a lot of clients to get through.

If you are one to get confused by which brush does what, Real Techniques have made it easy!  Each brush has the purpose it is intended for on the handle plus each colour has it’s own job. Gold handles are for base, Pink handles for Sculpting, Purple for Eyes.

If you are just beginning, the brush sets are a great way to get your brush collection started and I love the slim plastic storage containers that are included.

So, if you are looking for some good quality, affordable vegan brushes to add to your kit, you can’t go past Real Techniques.  Available at Priceline or online at www.realtechniques.com.au
