stila's top 10 of 2010!

Dec 31, 2010

2010 was a fabulous year for us at stila.  enjoy our top 10 of 2010.  for us, these are the bright moments that made this year amazing.

10. stila travel palettes became a collector’s item overnight!  everyone wants to know where we will go next!!

9. go lakers!  we had a huge reason to celebrate when they won another championship this year.  after all, stila is an official sponsor.

8. pro artists’ lindsey, kaci, viviana, sulema, and jenn proved that stila can go extreme when they worked on the fantasy hair show, hair battle spectacular. 

7. our stila website received its very own facelift!

6. dom debuted on HSN for christmas!  what is better than a personal makeup artist to teach you what gift is perfect for your loved ones?!

5. stila arrived at IMATS – with lots of makeup and great deals.  our booth was a hotspot and we loved everyone that stopped by to visit!

4. sarah lucero rocked the red carpet with lo bosworth and stephanie pratt for the emmys!  all 3 girls looked stunning.  this moment was the beginning of stila’s partnership with E! and the amazing palettes available today!

3. the bachelorette wore stila.  planning on getting proposed to as well?  we like yumberry crush, coquette long wear lipstick, or muse long wear liquid lipstick!

2. new product releases become top sellers – stay all day liquid eyeliner, smudge stick eyeliner, one step correct, and custom color blush.

1. trendsetting looks walk the runways during spring fashion week in september at lincoln center.  sarah lucero was the key makeup artist and worked backstage with the stila team on six different shows - betsey johnson, lela rose, rebecca minkoff, jenni kayne, whitney eve, and dallin chase.  these fashion forward looks inspired trends around the globe and were seen in top magazines and blogs including WWD. 

happy new year stila fans!!!! may 2011 be even better :)  xoxo


pro artist tip of the week – our favorite new year’s eve looks

Dec 27, 2010

it’s almost time to ring in the new year.  if you are like us, you might be a little surprised that 2010 is already over.  but instead of shedding a few tears, you will most likely put on a brave face, and move forward to 2011 – we’re sure it has lots of great things in store!  and in honor of the celebration you will want to look your best.  in fact, new year’s eve is the perfect time of year to go bolder with your makeup choices.  here’s some of our favorite new year’s eve looks that you might consider trying…

bright pink lips.  do you want your lips to look extra kissable this new year’s eve?  go pink!  it’s girly, attractive, and fun.  plus it’s on trend.  we recommend our long wear liquid lip color in caprice.  this lip product won’t come off – even when the ball drops at midnight and you’re being kissed by that special someone!

classic cat eye.  there is nothing hotter right now than the classic cat eye.  and with stila’s stay all day liquid liner, this look is sure to stay on all through the night (and maybe through new year’s day as well! – haha!) 

colorful eyes.  lastly, consider being a little artistic this new year’s eve.  go colorful with your eye makeup.  use stila’s eye shadows wet to make an impression.  we are loving copper, wisteria, pewter, and pigalle right now – all shades are perfect for any party.

happy early new year stila fans!  have fun celebrating :) xoxo

color wheel inspiration - 60's psychedelic art and true artists

the holiday season is in full swing and there are limited days left to purchase a color wheel for yourself or someone you love.  in the spirit of giving, we thought we’d share with our beloved fans the true inspiration that went into the making of this palette.  if anything, it will make this palette more real to you – definitely more than an amazing deal (37 shadows for $30!).  jill tomandl, stila’s vp of packaging and product development recently explained that... 

“the holiday collection was inspired by the color wheel, 60’s psychedelic art and true artists who create their own unique vision.” 

a huge inspiration behind the color wheel was 60’s rock poster art.  as you can tell from the posters below, these posters are not only fun and colorful, but also sure to inspire anyone wanting to be artistic themselves.

the joshua light show ( was another inspiration in particular for the color wheel.   to us, this is true art and we are particularly inspired by the multi-media projections at live concert venues like these seen below:

lastly, the color wheel and our "W" ad had a huge fashion emphasis.  specifically, beetle from sine and die inspired us (  she is a custom fashion designer, and each of her garments is a work of art created from hand dyed silk and custom stitching.  evidence of her work and inspiration can be seen in the color wheel, the color wheel stila girl, and the "W" ad.

we wish you the best holiday season and hope you are enjoying your holiday color wheels as much as we are.  in honor of this unique cosmetic gift, enjoy this quote.

“when an artist is more concerned with what is said than how it is said, there is no art.” – anonymous
