The Makeup World Is About To Turn Upside Down!

The world is about to turn upside down with this amazing new silicone blending makeup sponge!

Silicone blending sponges are having a moment right now thanks to the Silisponge, an applicator that looks similar to a breast push-up pad and is designed to flawlessly blend in makeup. However, for some, the flat tool can be a little unwieldy, while others long for a textured surface similar to that of a true sponge.

A Kickstarter campaign for Evie Blender has taken the original silicone tool concept and claims to have perfected it. Its creator, makeup artist Angie Johnson, came up with the concept when working behind the scenes on television shows like Documentary Now!. For these programs, she put her special effects skills to use, and her experimentation with different silicone materials while creating prosthetics inspired Evie’s creation.

Its squishy, teardrop shape makes it easy to grip, and it features both a large end for buffing and a pointed end to get into small areas like under the eye and around the nose. It has a textured surface just like a real sponge but doesn’t hold on to makeup, making it easy to wash off (it doesn’t stain either). The hypoallergenic tool can even be boiled or wiped with rubbing alcohol to sanitize it — a major selling point for professional artists. Bonus: it’s sparkly!

Though the tool isn’t available for purchase yet, you can donate $28 to the Kickstarter campaign, which will secure your very own Evie for March delivery (should the campaign make its goal). Read on to see more shots of the Evie Blender, then give to the Kickstarter if you’re interested in trying it out!

Makeup News: Cheeto Bronzer

screen%20shot%202016-12-30%20at%2012-05-42%20pm

 

When applying bronzer, people often fear they’ll look unnaturally orange. Emily Susanah, however, is all about that cheese-like glow—literally. Weirdly enough, Cheetos bronzer exists. It debuted last month as part of the popular chip company’s holiday collection, and the beauty blogger recently posted a video on social media of herself trying the usual (and totally unexpected) beauty product out. When we say her mini tutorial has gone viral, we aren’t exaggerating. About 8.3 million people have viewed the clip she put on Instagram in the past week. We’re used to seeing Huda Kattan’s videos getting around 2 million, but 8 million people stopping to watch this hilarious video is a bit more than we can fathom. The universal love of Cheetos is real, guys. This video is proof.

In her viral video, Emily Susanah brushed the Colour de Cheeto Bronzer, which looks like queso poured into a cosmetic jar, in the usual places one would want to glow, like the hollows of the cheeks, along the hairline, and down either side of the nose. The final result looked like she wiped powdery remnants from the bottom of a Cheetos bag on her face. In her Instagram caption, the beauty blogger suggested alternative uses for the cheese-colored bronzer. “Obviously this would work better for eyeshadow, special effects, lips,” she wrote. We couldn’t agree more.

You can watch Emily Susanah’s Cheetos bronzer below.

Makeup News: Lite-Brite Henna

OMG! Everyone at The Salon Professional Academy, a cosmetology and skincare school in San Jose are freaking out of the newest trend for 2017, UV henna. The colors are amazing under a black light. This is great to add a pop of fun to any New Years Eve Event!

 

If you know who to follow, social media is a beauty inspo treasure trove: Contouring and mermaid hair) were both born on Instagram and YouTube. Now UV henna tattoos will likely pop up on your feed, stat. And they’re not as sun-damagey as they sound. They’re actually glow-in-the-dark temporary henna tattoos, perfect for music festivals, nightclubs, or just your own after-dark amusement.

According to Popsugar, unlike traditional henna, these lite-brite inspired tats aren’t made with dye from the henna plant. Instead, UV henna tattoos are painted on with a special type of temporary body paint that glows under black light. (Which is to say the “UV henna tattoo” is a bit of a misnomer…) Although the colorful paint isn’t waterproof—and therefore, won’t last nearly as long as a real henna tattoo—the glow-in-the-dark effect makes a major statement. You can go the traditional route, and use the paint to draw on an intricate, henna-inspired pattern—we’ve got some major inspiration for you right here—or go a different route, and paint on just about anything you like. Maybe your initials? Your sign? Your address? (Kidding on that last one.) Either way, this fun, easy, and low-commitment beauty trend should definitely be on your list of trends to try in 2017—it’s certainly on ours. They’re kind of like a flash tattoo, if flash tattoos were glow-in-the-dark and DIY.

Makeup News: The World Has Gone Baddie!

 

Here at The Salon Professional Academy in San Jose, a cosmetology and skincare school. We love Urban Decay and the Instagram sensation Baddie Winkle, and now the two have combine! Baddie is now this months beauty muse for the brand. Just out the awesome article below, and take a sneak peek at whats to come from the collaboration!

BY ALEXANDRA ENGLER

You might know 88-year-old Baddie Winkle best from Instagram. There, you can see the badass grandma hanging out with Khloé Kardashian, staring in a Fergie music video, donning a pink feathered robe to the Grammys red carpet, or rocking a bedazzled nude bodysuit to the MTV Video Music Awards. Basically, she is living her best life. And who am I kidding? She’s living my best life, too.

Well, Winkle just got even cooler: Urban Decay named her its latest Monthly Muse. It’s a pairing that makes total sense; Urban Decay is all about having fun with your look, making your own rules, and living colorfully. And you can find few who do that better than this social media star who currently has 2.6 million Instagram followers and a bio that says “Stealing your man since 1928.”

For the Muse shoot, Urban Decay flew the Tennessee-native to Los Angeles and dressed her up various cool-girl ensembles, including a see-through fishnet top, sequin silver dress, pink bomber, and a star-stitched jean skirt. It looked like what I imagine would happen if Rizzo from Grease decided to become a street style blogger.

But the sartorial choices are all par for the course for Winkle, she tells Urban Decay in an accompanying Q&A video. “I’ve always been stylish, and I love color,” she says. “Color for clothes inspires me.” For her makeup, Winkle says she uses eyeshadow, lipstick, and Urban Decay’s Setting Sprays.

Winkle fits right into the Muse series, where the brand featured twin-sisters Corianna and Brianna Dotson, founders of Coco and Breezy eyewear, lifestyle blogger Hieu Cow, and model-photographer-DJ Alie Layus. They’re all cool AF women who are defining beauty on their own terms, while being total bosses.

Makeup News: Beauty on Demand!

Marcia Kilgore is well-versed in launching revolutionary companies, but her newest venture may just change the beauty world forever.

The entrepreneur founded a string of household name brands — Bliss, FitFlop, Soap & Glory — before moving on to Beauty Pie, a new subscription service that calls itself “makeup without the markup.”

The concept is simple, but genius: Kilgore works with the chemists and manufacturers behind prestige companies and has them create formulas for Beauty Pie. If you sign up for a $10/monthly (or $120/annually) subscription, you’ll get access to these beauty products at factory price. For example, a Beauty Pie volumizing mascara would cost you $24 if you bought it without subscribing, but if you are a member, you’ll only pay $2(!).

This concept was born out of her own work with beauty suppliers, which she missed after selling her last company. “I would get to leave with a huge bag of products to test, which was thrilling,” Kilgore told POPSUGAR via email. “I would then stumble into a cosmetics shop in the airport or train station on my way home, and think, ‘Whoa, I am glad I don’t have to pay retail for my cosmetics!’ There was this idea to make that thrilling ‘kid in a candy store’ feeling available to every woman.”

Kilgore hopes that Beauty Pie will appeal to the beauty junkie who has a love of the deluxe, but is trying to cut back on how much they spend. She looked at brands like Everlane, Spotify, and Netflix for inspiration, which all offer transparent pricing and convenience.

Beauty Pie’s transparent pricing comes from the lack of markup that goes into each product. Think about your favorite designer makeup brand: the sheer prestige behind the label is mostly to blame for the expensive cost. Meanwhile, the manufacturers behind that pricey item likely also produce drugstore makeup.

“Most brands do not have their own factories, but rather source their products from outside factories,” Kilgore explained. “For example, Tesco sources from the same makeup factory as Charlotte Tilbury.”

Another expensive characteristic of high-end cosmetics is the fancy packaging. “In a lot of cases, the packaging costs more than the product, and it isn’t recyclable and it ends up in landfills,” said Kilgore. Not so with Beauty Pie. The brand is taking luxury formulas from the best factories around the world and then packaging them in minimalist but chic tubes.

“We are trying to minimize the impact of our use and love of cosmetics on landfills,” said Kilgore. Her team hopes to work toward developing cosmetics packaging that is more recyclable as well as aesthetically pleasing (a rare feat in today’s product development landscape).

Beauty Pie just launched in December 2016, but the brand will be rolling out tools in January, then moving on to skin care in April. Kilgore is starting with “incredible Swiss formulations” for this category and has tapped labs in South Korea, Japan, France, and more clear complexion hubs around the world for future launches.

“We are literally launching 365 new makeup products next year alone,” revealed Kilgore, “So there’s going to be a lot for her to choose from . . . a cornucopia of cosmetics.”

Considering “cut back on beauty spending” is a common New Year’s resolution for many makeup junkies, it’s definitely worth seeing what a Beauty Pie membership can do you for your wallet. Learn more when you visit beautypie.com.

Skin Care News: Kylie Jenner’s winter skin-care must-haves

You already know what the star uses on her lips, who she calls up for last-minute color touch-ups, and now you’ve got Kylie Jenner’s winter skin-care must-haves. You know, for those times when the wind gets out of control and the snow starts piling up (just maybe not in Calabasas).

Recently, the 19-year-old spilled some of the ultra-hydrating, can’t-live-without products she loves to slather on once temps start to drop. And because Jenner has yet to lead us astray with her recommendations (two words: Lip Kit), we thought we’d share the wealth because—who knows?—maybe you and the megamillionaire share the same skin-care routine?

“Even though I love winter, I hate what the colder temps do to my face! I can’t stand dry, dull skin, so I’m all about any products that keep my skin feeling hydrated and soft,” Jenner wrote.

So without further ado, here are the moisturizing picks the Kylie Cosmetics founder uses on the daily when baby it’s cold outside.
