How I Achieved My Hawaii Beach Look Using Mineral Makeup

img_1290Living here in Hawaii on Oahu island is like being on vacation everyday. But if you’re a full face makeup wearer like myself sometimes it can be a little challenging when it comes to makeup. The weather here is summer everyday and during the summer the sun is no joke. As a boogie down brown woman I can get a really good tan just by being outside for 30 mins. So, on days when I am going to the beach I try to give myself a softer makeup look and I select long wearing products that will stay all day as much as it possibly can. The great thing for me is that I have my own makeup line, Entitled Beauty and it’s a mineral base brand so it doesn’t cause me to break out when I’m out in the sun sweating. The last thing you want to feel is the makeup dripping down your face and with Entitled Beauty the makeup feels weightless and it’s breathable. My pores are not getting as clogged and it’s not irritating my skin.

I posted a picture of myself on Instagram and Twitter and I received so many great compliments asking about my makeup so I thought I would share what makeup I had on. I didn’t take the best pictures of myself so excuse the quality but hopefully you can see what my beach day makeup look was. I was at the beach all day and evening as you can tell in the video.

5 Things Hawaii Celebrity Makeup Artist Must Have In Her Makeup Kit For The NBA All Star Weekend

While relaxing on the beach today here at home in Hawaii, I started working on my list of things I need in my makeup kit for the upcoming NBA All Star Weekend. Being the Lead Hair & Makeup Director for this 3 day weekend festival since 2008, I always try to have the best beauty items that will look great on the athletes, game hosts and music artists on television. Because everything is live I don’t have time for mistakes so I like using items that I can count on and will give everyone a radiant and flawless finish.

Here are my Top 5 must have’s items I will need during the NBA All Star Weekend next week in Chicago.

1. YSL Touche Elcat Blur Primer preps skin for foundation application, creating an improved, refined appearance: pores seem to be minimized, skin texture feels smoother, and skin tone is more even. It’s enriched with four nourishing oils—corn oil, apricot kernel oil, passiflora oil, and rice bran oil—to leave skin feeling incredibly soft without a greasy residue. Packed with blur technology, this universal primer provides a subtle, golden shimmer for ultimate luminosity.

2. Armani Luminious Silk FoundationReveal your inner light. Inspired by charmeuse silk, “The Fabric of Emperors,” this luminous foundation glides on weightlessly for a flawless lit-from-within glow. Using exclusive Micro–fil™ technology to sculpt and brighten, this buildable, medium coverage foundation improves texture and blurs imperfections. 

3. Makeup Revolution London Banana Loose Baking Powder is a favorite for prolonging the wear of makeup, banishing shine, brightening and balancing skin tone. Loose powders are a good option for those who desire a luminous, silky and even finish. I find it to be one of the best items to use on male talent because they shine more and this powder doesn’t look heavy on my male talents.

4. Chanel Eclat Du Désert Illuminating Powder imparts a subtle, golden glow for radiant dimension. It has a warm undertones with a luminous sheen. The opaque color coverage can be achieved in a single layer while the texture makes it easy to build if more pigmentation is needed.

5. Beauty Blender has long been a red carpet favorite giving you a fresh and glowing look with the help of the Beautyblender. Make sure it’s damp to keep the skin looking fresh then bounce the sponge across your face for a natural finish. I am able to use a Beautyblender for the first 4 items not having to pick up any other makeup brushes. I never leave my home without having a Beautyblender in my kit.

How I Got Miss Hawaii USA Makeup Ready For A Night Out In Honolulu

 

img_5289Strutting in and slow-motion walks this breathtaking beauty carrying a see-thru case that’s holding something fantastic because I can see Swarovski Crystal peeking through and a #iDIE for blinged out phone case. Whom ever this beauty is, I’m obsessed and knew she had to be coming to see me.

I was correct, it was Miss Hawaii USA,Samantha Leyland who had a  3:30pm makeup appointment with me at Bloomingdale’s in Ala Moana Center. Samantha had an engagement with Modern Luxury Hawaii Magazine and BMW for the Hawai’i International Film Festival. 

 

The makeup I used was all from Giorgio Armani Beauty. She’s a fan of Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and I knew her skin would look radiant in it. I wanted Samantha’s skin to be flawless and luminous at the event and to last all evening for all of the pics that she would be taking.

On Samantha’s eyes, I selected Eyes To Kill Stellar Eye shadow and Eyes To Kill Quattro Eye shadow. I wanted tonight’s makeup look to focus only on her eyes. Because she’s a beautiful girl I didn’t want her makeup to compete with her.

Samantha has the best cheekbones ever so I flirted with them just a little. I didn’t go overboard with bringing them out since she really have great cheekbones. For her brows I used a crayon brow pencil and I gave them an effortless shape just enough to bring attention to her eyes. On her lip, I lined her entire lip with a lip pencil then I filled them in with a liquid lipstick and topped her lips off with a lacquer gloss.

Last touch was a little highlight on those cheekbones for a natural glow on her face when she walked the red carpet.

A Rainy Day In Hawaii Could Not Stop Me For Creating A Beautiful Bridal Makeup Look

img_4339Today, I had a bridal consultation scheduled and it wasn’t the best of day for a bride to come out to get hair & makeup.

The rain has been coming down all night and all morning. Not your usual weather here in Hawaii. But, I’ve been told that in December, January, and February the weather is not the best here in Hawaii. We seem to get heavier rainfalls at night then in the day we get these mist of showers follow by rainbow.

So, I shouldn’t complain about the weather but last night I took my time to pin curl my hair so that it would last all week due to my busy schedule. So, I didn’t want my hair to get wet and then get all big and frizzy. Plus, I wanted to look nice for my client and her soon to be mother in-law who was coming in to see me today at Bloomingdale’s in Ala Moana Center. Can’t be running around looking like Lion King because I know I’m going to want to take pictures with the beautiful soon to be bride.

I met Adrian last month when she arrived here in Hawaii and I helped her with selecting a new foundation from Armani. I choose the Luminous Silk foundation for Adrian because of her gorgeous skin and because she wanted a radiant makeup look. Adrian reached out to me right after the holidays and said she would like to come in for her bridal pics and would like to bring her mother in-law Barbara. Adrian is not a daily makeup wearer so I wanted to give her a makeup look  that would be just enough for pictures. No lashes and heavy contour was needed, I kept Adrian makeup effortless. I wanted to focus on her skin, I wanted to brighten up her skin and under worked under her eyes. Sometimes, correcting the skin is all a girl need.

Then it was Barbara’s turn to get makeup glammed with me. Barbara does wear makeup everyday so she was really excited about getting her makeup done by me. For Barbara, I also focused on her skin. I prepped her with Armani Prima skincare first then I corrected her skin warming up her skintone and also I corrected under eyes. Barbara actually had great skin so I didn’t need to cover up anything. Just matching her with the correct foundation.

Both ladies were now ready for their photo shoot across the street at Ala Moana Park. When you’re in Hawaii and need help with finding the correct foundation, skincare and/or need a glam facebeat, you can book your appointment with me at Bloomingdale’s inside Ala Moana Center.  All of the makeup I used on both ladies were from Giorgio Armani.
