This LIne Promises A Full Face In 7 Minutes - New Launches From The Lip Bar

@bufferingbetty

Fast Beat: Look like you took a hour but you did it on the train.

In the age of complicated makeup application, The Lip Bar is giving you back your time. No overly complicated brow routines, no 8 steps to complexion. None of that exists in the launch of their new products that will give you a put together look for where ever you deem makeup necessary.

Meet Fast Face

 
 

We’re all reeling from the release of their Skin Serum Foundation in 26 shades!

 
 

Just a glance at the shade range, and you can see that WOC with deeper skin tones were at the center of this launch.

 
 

Broken down into 6 shade families starting at 1 O’clock t0 6 O’clock.

Founder, Melissa Butler, breaks down the shade families to help you more easily identify your shade. She explained the families by comparing them to a celebrity who would fit the range. She didn’t say a celeb for the lightest group of shades but she said the were very fair. The 4 0’clock shade range correlates to her skin tone, too. Here is the rest of the list.

2:00 Stay Ready - J. Lo

3:00 Boss- Lauren London

4:00 Stuntin’ - Melissa Butler

5:00 Vogue - Kelly Rowland

6:00 Squad Goals - Lupita

The packaging is designed to make application mess proof. The brush head dispenser means you don’t have to add extra tools into the mix. Just pump the bottom and the serum foundation flows through the bristles.

This finish tho!

A breathable, skin like glow for a healthy looking finish.

 
 

Hygenic? Yes, they thought of that, too!

Twist the base to pop off the cap and you’ll be able to clean the brush without compromising the integrity of the foundation.

There is a downside to a brush being built in. You cannot return the foudation. It’s a matter of cleanliness. “The brush has been used.” In short, this means, they would absolutley not be able to resell the foudation. Picking your shade online is tricky, even with The Lip Bar’s shade finder. However, of course, they’ve got a solution! You can get three free samples to find your shade. Just pay for shipping!

 
 

Why ‘Fast Face?’

 
 

Foudantion. Face Palette (with face powder, blush, contour, + highlighter). Eyeliner. Mascara. Poppin’ Lip. That’s the summary to the Fast Face. It all can fit in a small pouch and you’ll look like you used all of the Target beauty section to acheive your look.

Let’s be real:

Have you seen a makeup tutorial lately. On IG or Youtube or even on Sephora’s product videos? Why is it taking 8.4 million steps to get a “natural, everyday, casual, no-makeup makeup” look??

Complex riddles with twists and turns leaving viewers with unanswered questions. If you were just starting out with makeup, you’d be tricked into thinking you’ll need so many proucts for the simplist look.

The Lip Bar pushed away all of the fluff and has streamlined beauty for real life. For people who need to be ready to go like right now.

While riding a train, Melissa Butler came across a woman who literally needed her new launches. That’s who The Lip Bar is designing for. She shared on her IG stories a woman riding the train while doing her makeup. The Skin Serum Foundation would have shaved her from having makeup hands.

Makeup is easy again.

 
 

And you’re ready for any where your day is taking you

Minute Finish Face Palette!

 
 

Includes a face powder, highlight, blush, and a contour.

Tracee Ellis Ross Launches Haircare Line + The Message Feels Like Big Hug

@bufferingbetty

“Love your hair. It is yourself.”

Actress Tracee Ellis Ross is the actress known for telling stories that encourage us to laugh and love. She is a fashion icon known for making us look at our closets and feel utterly unimpressed. Now, she will be the mogul who looked over our shoulder in the mirror and kissed our curly, coily, and tightly textured hair. Ross’ haircare line, Pattern, is what she describes as, “something that has been living in [her] heart for 20 years is [now] manifesting into reality.”

Meet Pattern

 
 

The line features a hyrdation shampoo, 3 types of conditioners that cater to your pattern’s haircare needs, 2 serums, a leave in conditioner, and haircare accessories to make your wash day go more smoothly; such as a microfiber towel.

“Every curl has a story, a rythm, a dance, a curve, coil, zig-zag, wave. Curls speak for themselves.” (Pattern)

With that understanding, Pattern crafted three types of conditoners to fit the moisture needs of these different types of hair. To help you define your type of curls, they created a curl guide.

Conditioner Types for “juicy and joyful” hair:

Medium: for curls

Heavy: for coils

Intense: for tight textures

Leading up to the lauch of Pattern

Tracee Ellis Ross shared her own journey to accepting and loving her hair.

tr.PNG

“IF MY HAIR COULD TALK ~ oh, the stories it would tell. i can literally chronicle my journey of self-acceptance through my journey with my hair. growing up, society told me there was a right way to wear my hair and a right way to look. those ideals didn’t match what i saw in the mirror, so i tried to beat my curls into submission— putting body lotion in my hair, sleeping in rollers, blowouts, relaxers, texturizers, ponytails so tight they gave me a headache; and i even whipped out an iron (the kind you use for clothes) in an attempt to straighten it that way.

trying to make my hair look “easy and breezy”, “bouncin’ and behavin’” actually had the opposite effect. my hair was broken, damaged, and tired of trying to be something that it wasn’t.

i finally took the leap and stopped relaxing my curls, thereby beginning the healing journey towards loving my hair. it was a long road to knowing, understanding and, eventually, loving my curls. now i just let them be the happy little ringlets and zig zags of joy they want to be.

if your hair could talk, what would it say? #fbf #hairlove

This woman turned her hair into a crown in a shoot for Essence Magizine. A CROWN!!!!

This self love carries into the mission for Pattern:

The price range for Pattern is also relatively affordable, too! The conditoiners, serums, and the leave-in each are $25. The shampoo is $20 and all of the haircare accessories are under $20!

Hello! Got get ‘em!

12 Hacks Priscilla Ono Has In Her Beauty Kit That Give Clients The VIP Treatment

@bufferingbetty

Not one of them is actually makeup!

As the Global Makeup Artist for Fenty Beauty and Rihanna’s makeup artist, Priscilla Ono has to be prepared for anything while on set. Via Instagram story, Ono shared some of the tools in her treasure box - we mean, makeup skit. Of course, Fenty Beauty on tap was to be expected, but butt wipes?! Let’s dive into this kit!

Who else is excited for the release of Fenty’s new foundation!!!

 
 

What we expect to find in a make up artist’s kit:

 
giphy.gif
 

All we know is:

Priscilla Ono is a wonderfully talented artist. So if she’s got it in her kit, all aspiring MUAs should take note.

1. Breath refreshments!

Mints. Honestly, it’s so obvious, we’re mad we didn’t think of it. Think of how close a makeup artist can get to a client’s face. Now image if the client had a seafood lunch. Prscilla says she keeps vairous flavors in her kit to have her clients’ preferences on hand.

Mints →

2. Toothpicks

“Because people gotta eat and you can’t have your clients have things in their teeth.” We’re learning so much in this Instagram story. Did you know there was such a thing as flavored toothpicks!? We did not!

Cinnamon Toothpicks →

 
 

3. “Butt Wipes”

“Gotta have the butt being fresh.” This one probably isn’t necessarily for a client, and Ono didn’t offer any beauty tips with this one, but we’re guessing if the artist is feeling fresh and clean, their work will be too.

Butt wipes →

 
 

4. Privacy, please!

While we’re on the subject, this Poo-Pourri will let you go confidently without fear of an odor fallout.

Poo-Pourri

5. Foot Wipes

For shoots where the model is barefoot. If your client missed a pedicure and it shows, these wipes have a quick way to exfoliate the feet.

Foot Wipes →

 
giphy.gif
 

6. Shot Wipes

“Because sometimes accidents happen. You don’t want body makeup staining the clothes.” She’s got every wipe you can think of.

Shot Wipes

 
giphy.gif
 

7. Soap Sheets

The most important skill any makeup artist must master is cleanliness! Washing your hands and tools is a must. These are single use hand soaps! Priscilla says that she often finds that on set that there is running water but no soap. She wants her hands to be clean when she starts working. Prepared for anything is the theme here. Her compact is from Japan but the link below is close enough.

Soap Sheets

8. Vick’s VapoRub but Fashion

“Like Vaporub in oil form.” She uses this essential oil to apply to pressure points to cool down in hot climents.

Olba’s Oil

 
giphy.gif
 

9. Single Use eye Drops

Soothe eyes without fear of contamination! “Just tear one off and give it to your client.”

Individual Eye Drops

10. Spa Towels

“I like to put these in ice buckets when it’s really hot [to] cool down my client’s neck. Or you can put them in the microwave to warm them up on a cold day.” They’re individually wrapped towels that are damp and have essential oils. VIP treatment just became spa treatment.

Towels →

11. Fan

Because when it’s hot, you can’t have your models sweating!

12. No Spill Makeup Remover

Fill empty lipgloss tubes with a makeup remover. Makes it one step, compact, and even more handy

The ‘Worst Rated Makeup Artist In My City’ Challenge Is The Greatest Thing The Beauty Community Has Given Us

@bufferingbetty

It’s Worse Than You Think.

Finding a makeup artist that can make you feel Red Carpet ready is not easy. Are they professional, can they match my complexion, do they neglect their brush cleanings like I do? These are all questions we ask when we need to find an artist. But the internet threw that out the window. They searched review sites for the worst rated makeup artist in their city and VOLUNTARILY chose, and paid, to have their makeup done by people with the lowest ratings.

giphy.gif

Oh. It’s a big thing right now!

My favorite thus far comes to us from vlogger Daisy Kaur.

I’ve subtly blocked the artist face with this barely noticable sun sticker from giphy.

The artist told Daisy she’s been doing makeup for 9 years. With that kind of resume it should all go well, right?

Throughout the video, Daisy’s artist keeps leaving her. Just a few seconds after the artist begins, she asks Daisy if it’s ok if she goes to make a phone call. Pretty unprofessional. If the artist had gotten in a call, that’s one thing I would be ok with. But to interrupt your client’s time to go make a phone call. No. No.

The train was derailing from the moment the artist began using a base color that was too light to Daisy’s face.

She interrupts the makeup application several times. It was so cringy. I think maybe she was running off watching a few clips of a makeup tutorial to finish the application!

The eye shadow is when the derailed train fully combusted. At first, I thought this eyeshadow technique was a the artist giving herself a guideline, but it was not.

shadow.gif

I’m sorry but I could not stop myself from laughing.

But then. I. Got. Angry. The most important skill a makeup artist must have from my consumer/client opinion is cleanliness! I don’t care if you can make me look like Salma Hayek for a few hours if you’re going to give me a rash or something worse!

gloss.gif

This artist straight up applied the gloss to Daisy’s lips from the tube. The wand from the tube went on to Daisy’s lips! A communial WAND! I was screaming. Oh that’s just nasty.

zoom.gif

When applying your makeup, there is always a moment when it looks a little crazy where you think it’d be best if you just wash your face and start over. And, because I like give people a chance, I thought, maybe the artist could pull it together in the end. It would just need some final touhes and look great. That didn’t happen.

Ya’ll Daisy paid for a middle aged woman to play ‘makeup artist’ on her face. She paid to potentially contract something from that gloss!.

Daisy did an update at the end of her video where she says her eye were itching and she was having from sort of reaction on her lips.

She said the makeup smelled old and that brushes were scratchy. Girl, yes. We could see that from our screens at home.

Naomi Campbell Made A Makeup Tutorial And Now Every Internet Beauty Guru Has Some Explaining To Do

@bufferingbetty

First Step: Be Naomi Campbell

Nothing speaks to the power of Youtube like the trend of celebrities creating their own lifestyle vlog channels. J.Lo, Adrienne Bailon, Shay Mitchell, and, now, Naomi Campbell. This supermodel gave us selfie models the deets to her quick makeup routine and -just, wow. Thank you.

First off, Ms. Campbell starts the video with her immaculate bare skin -the woman has no need for makeup. Makeup needs Naomi. After years of getting her makeup done by the industry’s best, of course Naomi has picked up a few tricks along the way.

“My quick 5 minutes -er, no.. my quick few minutes makeup”

With her skin looking like hydration is thristy, she begins with some concealer to highlight her T-zone.

 
NARS     Soft Matte Complete Concealer

NARS

“Highlighting the T-zone is always important”

“I love using these [triangles]. They lay flat and dont apply too much [product].”

Throw out your beauty blender, folks, and get you a big pack of wedges!

 
FantaSea    Latex Free Foam Wedges

Naomi’s look was all about highlighting her bone structure and keeping the look as minmal as possible.

“i dont really where base on my forehead because I want to look like I dont really have anything on.”

For this look, instead of apply foundation all over the face, use a highlighting concealer on the center of your face and blend outward.

Pause. Can you believe she just has concealer in the center of her face??? The woman is just stunning.

Concealer. Contour. Blush. Boom. Naomi Campbell.

 
NARS   Contour Blush in Gienah

NARS

One of the biggest takeaways from this tut is that we all need to scrap how we’ve been applying blush. Naomi prefers “high blush.” Apply your blush to high part of you cheek rather than the apple.

“High blush not low blush. I dont like to apply blush on low cheeks. I think looks like clowny and takes away from the bone structure”

 
NARS   Blush in Geity

She blended the highlight and blush shade from the NARS cheek palette for highlight.

She finished the look with some brightening powder under her eyes.

 
NARS   Soft Velvet Pressed Powder in Mountain

And threw on the tinyest bit of purple eye shadow. She used the darkest shade from this palette and did a wash of color.

“Purple is my favorite color”

 
NARS   Quad Eyeshadow in Tropical Express

She shared that when she was younger, NARS Honolulu Honey was her favorite lipstick.

NARS   Satin Lipstick in Honolulu Honey

NARS

“After years of sitting in a chair for so many hours, when I do it, it has to be a minute thing.”

She skipped mascara entirely because her lash extensions were so beautiful and she said she doesn’t really wear mascara.

She likes a ‘pinky’ lip and blended these two glosses together.

NARS   Lip Gloss in Sexual Conduct

There were a few moments where our hearts dropped. To remove the excess powder, Naomi Campbell kept blowing on her brushes!

What is happening!

 
 

But don’t you dare come for Naomi.

Everyone was just honored to be here, honestly.

Facts. We’ve been played. Stop using 600 products to get the same results as Naomi’s look.

Naomi doesn’t need a lot of anything.

KKW Body Foundation Changed This Woman's Life And Shut Down Haters On Twitter

@bufferingbetty

So many feels!

KKW Beauty released a body foundation and, as goes everything with the notorious Kardashian family, there was drama. Everyone had a strong opinion to share. But one influencer had a story about her mom that made Twitter take a seat and actually listen.

 
 

Katrina is a beauty blogger (@treeeenz) who wanted her followers to know exactly why the KKW Skin Perfecting Body Foundation deserved some love and support.

 
 

On Twitter, Katrina shared this photo of her mom’s legs. One leg has had the KKW Body foundation applied to it while the other leg is red and has discoloration.

 
D-CxRsUU4AAnpNp.jpg
 

“this is why i bought my mom the @kkwbeauty body foundation. with my mom’s sickness, she developed a skin condition and she’s been so embarrassed to even wear shorts or dresses out in public. she got so extremely happy after i applied the body foundation and i’m so emotional rn” @treeeenz

“this is why i was getting so angry about everyone who was saying this was a stupid product. please be mindful that not everyone has perfect skin/legs/etc. i can’t wait to take my mom out this summer and her not being self conscious about her illness”

She got many replies to her tweet supporting her. Some even shared their own insecurities.

Others, not so much.

Capturem.PNG

I could see this having some truth. But I wonder if this person has an issue with the whole beauty industry?

I think this is a great concept. KKW Beauty is hardly the first brand to release body foundation. I remember as a teen when my mom came home with a body foundation to cover her vericose veins. I didn’t think she needed it but that’s not for me to decide.

While I see the point about “promoting unrealistic standards of perfection” from the whole beauty industry, not just the Kardashians, I think a lot of people are missing a point. Choice + growth. Choose to wear whatever you want. My mom chose to wear makeup on her legs in the summer. And eventually, she got tired of applying foundation to her legs are learned to accept them. The process of covering up her legs, made her engaged with them more and I think that is how she got over that insecurity. I haven’t heard my mom talk about how her veins look in years. Hopefully, Katrina’s mom goes through that same growth. And even if she continues to cover her legs, it is her choice. Respect that.

here’s to Feeling pretty

These $8 Fenty Dupes Will Be Your Summer Staple!

Colourpop to the rescue!

Colourpop came through with their Lite Stix + Blush Stix collection just in time! Summer make up means fast application. Blink and the season is over. We’ve got beaches to catch! We don’t want to spend a single extra minute worrying about perfect blending when their are weekend carnivals with our names all over them. What caught my eye, was the fact that this new Colourpop release included colors that looked like some of my favorite Fenty Beauty Shimmer Stix shades! I found Colourpop matches for almost all of the Fenty Shimmer Stix. The only one left out was Blondie. We can’t deny, Fenty has a way with gold that other brands haven’t yet grasped; Long Live Trophy Wife!! Here are the matches I found!
