Although most of our men these days leave makeup to the girls, there are times when it is helpful to even out that manly glow.  As a professional makeup artist, I get to freshen up male models before they get their pictures taken!

On photo shoots for men, I like to insist that I am not dolling the men up, I am toning them down.  This means a bit of bronzer on the bones and a touch of color to the cheeks and lips so everything looks moisturized and HEALTHY!  I am giving them an even glow so their audience sees the model, not the blemishes or a pale I-work-indoors skin tone.

Makeup for men takes ten minutes or less, depending on skin discolorations and photo shoot conditions such as sun and heat.  Check out the results!

It’s summertime and it is time to rest that hair.  Do you know how to wear your tresses on the natural and how to style without a mirror?  I can help!

Let’s recap our beauty rules for warm weather:

~ Learn how to braid.  From long French braids to little front side braids, braiding makes you look pretty without the fuss, especially if you are playing outside.

~ Carry a leave-in conditioner in your beach bag. From Argon or Moroccan oil to sea sprays and curl creams, these revive and refresh your hair before and after warm weather fun.

~Use your fingers.  Natural styles emphasize definition. Form and tousle your hair throughout the day, leaving that round winter brush where it belongs…in the bathroom.

~Get accessories.  Pins, flowers, headbands and hats are a little party for your head and you can keep them in your bag for last minute beauty smarts.

Remember, natural styling is good for your hair. Be sure to give it the summer retreat it deserves and let it be healthy.  Enjoy the season!
