pro artist tip of the week – curl those lashes

Sep 26, 2011

at stila we love great looking lashes.  and most of the time, great lashes begin with a nice curl.  some of us are simply blessed with lashes that curl on cue.  however, others need to work for that curl.  since most of us need a little help to get our lashes curled, here are some helpful tips.

use an eyelash curler.  don’t be afraid of this useful tool.  it can lift the lashes in no time.  avoid clamping for minutes creating a harsh line in the lashes.  instead, try clamping for a few seconds and move up the lashes and clamp again for a more subtle, natural curl.

add in individual lashes.  individual lashes can create the illusion of curl, especially on the outer half of the eye.  try adding a few flares the next time you need your lashes to look amazing.

coat with the right mascara.  we love stila’s forever your curl mascara for fluffy, curled lashes.  this mascara is a must-have anyone who’s lashes lose curl easily.  plus the pigment is amazing!

makeup trends from the emmys

Sep 20, 2011

check out these fun videos from E! featuring emmy makeup looks we love. 

sofia vergara looked stunning.  we loved the color and think anyone could recreate her red carpet glow with custom color coral and mango crush topped with serenade long wear lip color.

julie bowen’s classic smoky eye and nude lip is perfect on the red carpet.  it’s easy to recreate with the darker shades of the in the light palette and in the nude long wear lip color!

lastly, who doesn’t love lea michele?  we do.  she hit a homerun with her makeup.  You can too with a little stay all day liquid eyeliner in black and peony convertible color.  works like a charm – every time!

pro artist tip of the week – contour those cheek bones!

Sep 19, 2011

makeup artists have several tricks up their sleeves when they are enhancing people’s features.  and contouring is one secret weapon to be relied on always.  why?  it helps make the most of your features in no time, specifically the cheekbones!   want cheekbones as well?  we have three must-have products that you can contour with daily.

stila sun bronzer.  dust this on the hollow of your cheeks to create a shadow/contour.  the velvet matte texture is ideal for shading. 

kitten all over shimmer. brush this shimmer along the cheekbone, creating a soft highlight.  this draws the light to the correct part of your face and gives you instant cheekbones.

#24 brush.  this multitasker is perfect for contouring.  use the fluffy side with the bronzer and the small side with the shimmer.  it works like a charm everytime!

Sep 15, 2011

have you tried our #33 brush yet?  this double-ended complexion brush allows you to perfect all areas of your face in minutes.  we love it.  and so does allure magazine.  they recently gave it a best beauty award for the “best concealer brush”.  according to the allure editors, “dark circles and flaming pimples are no match for the double-ended stila brush.  the stiff bristles on one end give precision coverage; switch to the fluffly side to buff out the edges.”  amazing!  we are honored.  get yours today if you don’t have one already!
