Makeup News:Elf On A Shelf Eyeliner!

We’ve already tried candy cane and Tiffany & Co bow-inspired eyeliner art ideas, and makeup guru Meghan Rusk is giving us new inspiration on Instagram. Via her handle phunky_town, Meghan is showing off some serious drawing skills. She has used makeup to create unique Winter and holiday motifs on her eyelids, including snowflakes, bells, bows, and — our favorite — an Elf on a Shelf!

“I love creating liner looks, and the holiday season is my favorite time of the year,” Meghan told POPSUGAR via email. “I leave the decorating around the house until last minute to avoid my pets from tearing them down, which bums me out. I decided I would combine my passion for makeup and the love of the holiday season to create fun looks to make up for the lack of holiday decorations around my home.”

Obviously we needed to know more specifics about the Elf on a Shelf look. “My family never took part in the Elf on the Shelf activities,” she said. “I didn’t know what it was until a few years ago when my friends, who have children, posted daily updates on the ‘trouble’ the Elf has caused around their home. I figured it would be a fun way to spice up a liner look for the holiday season.”

Good news is, Meghan says you can totally try these ideas at home! “One tip I have for people who want to try creative liner at home is to keep practicing and be patient!” she said. “There are days where I have to redo my makeup four times to get it right! You will be frustrated at times and want to give up, but don’t. Once you nail it, you will be so happy that your hard work paid off.” Well, hers certainly did!

Makeup News: Too Faced Is Going Global!

The Salon Professional Academy, a Redken Diamond school is excited to learn that the makeup brand Too Faced Cosmetics is going Global. The brand was recently acquired by Estee Lauder family, and with joining the family means global domination and a larger product line to come!

 

 

Too Faced is growing up! The brand started by Jarrod Blandino has just be acquired by the Estée Lauder family. The acquisition of the company cost a cool $1.45 billion, according to WWD, which happens to be the largest purchase for Estée Lauder.

“The acquisition of Too Faced is complementary to our portfolio of brands because it has a unique feminine and Millennial communication focus, which is really complementary with very little cannibalization with the rest of our makeup portfolio,” president and CEO Fabrizio Freda of Estée Lauder told WWD.

Too Faced, which launched in 1998, has since become the number one seller at Sephora with its Better Than Sex mascara line. Cofounder Blandino says he believes the new partnership with Estée Lauder will allow Too Faced to spread its products across the globe while maintaining its core values.

“We are going to take a more global approach to the business going forward. When you look at what Estée Lauder has been able to do with MAC [Cosmetics] and Jo Malone and different brands that have their own retail outlets, it’s just been phenomenal and we’re really excited about that opportunity and the potential behind that.”

Blandino assured loyal costumers that Too Faced will remain cruelty-free. “We will not be animal testing, we will not be going into China, we will not be made to fold into a corporate culture that we do not have,” Blandino noted. “They love and respect what we have created and are just going to support us and lift us up, without changing us in any way but great,” he added.

With the new deal set in place, Too Faced cofounders are looking forward to an exciting future working with Estée Lauder and producing top-notch content for consumers, including a skin care and fragrance line.

“We are going to continue to dominate the color category, spinning skin care ingredients into the color cosmetics arena,” Blandino revealed regarding the future of Too Faced. “There are so many different places that we can go now because we have the support and resources. We have just been trying to keep up with the momentum of the shooting star that we created in 1998.” Sounds like a win-win situation to us.

“The stick application makes this perfect for when you’re on the go. Not only is it mess-free, but the formula offers full coverage (essentially like a concealer), goes on silky, and buffs into the skin like butter! The line’s color range is also amazing — it has you covered on every end of the spectrum!” — Alison Christian

“This supersheer foundation, which has become a cult favorite, has a watery texture that can offer the lightest of coverage. It also dries down and can be built up if you’d like more. It mimics the skin’s texture, offering the perfect veil of pigment. It’s best applied with a flat nylon brush (like MAC’s #191) and is good for all skin types.” — Ashleigh Ciucci
