Dolce & Gabbana-Inspired Spring Makeup

Spring has finally sprung and it’s time to revamp your day-to-day make-up look. During the fall and winter dark lips and smokier eyes are all the rage. Now I love a dark vampy lip just as much as the next girl, but spring calls for lighter and fresher colors to take center stage.  I love looking to fashion week for some fresh inspiration for a new season. This year, Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring Summer 2016 show not only showcased some amazingly bright and floral spring fashions but the models makeup was absolute perfection in my eyes! (pun-intended). The looks featured a freshly flushed face and simplistic eye looks. One model in particular showcased her amazingly gorgeous freckles- which I love! This look is perfection and it takes little to no time in the mornings- which if I’m completely honest is my favorite part.

PowerPoint Presentation

This look in particular super easy to achieve- and anyone can do it, I have faith in you! The first step is to switch out your heavier, fuller coverage foundations for a tinted moisturizer.  Not only does a tinted moisturizer give a fresher look, but it’s great to give your skin a break from the heavier of foundations and go for a more lightweight feel. A great option is the Beauty Addicts Mineral Sheer Tint, is quite buildable for a tinted moisturizer & its oil-free which makes it an option for all skin types. I also love how all the girls had a natural flush to their cheeks- not intense contouring; just a simple blush which I think is so beautifully refreshing. A great blush for the flushing from within look is the beauty Addicts Sleek Cheeks in Motivate. A great way to apply the cream shade in this compact is with a damp sponge, it will give you a more skin-like finish. Continuing on with the natural theme in this show were the lips- they stuck with a simple peachy pink, kind of like a your lips but better type of shade. I love the Beauty Addicts Lipstick in Flirt it’s an ideal peach shade with a hint of shimmer, if you’re looking for something a bit brighter I love the shade Vintage as well! I also loved how they kept the winged liner on the softer side, to achieve this liner look try using a black eyeshadow with an angled brush instead of liquid which can be a little more dramatic. Most importantly, don’t forget to have fun with it & Happy Spring!

As of right now, the lob is still killing it as one of the hottest haircuts of 2016. This style just keeps growing more and more creative with fun new styles. Lobs are no longer left polished, but styled with organic waves and fun top knots. SO, if you are looking for some more inspiration with your lob. Try these new styles this spring and summer!

 

 

 

 

 

 
lowknot-225x300So for your first day lob style, you can have fresh clean hair! Start with your natural hair pattern. Danielle has hair that can easily be blow dried straight, so that’s what we did! If you don’t want to leave it straight and down, you can wrap your hair in this low know spotted all over Spring Fashion Week runways! It’s super easy and very fashionable. The best part is that it looks best messy so try not to spend too much time perfecting it. For Danielle, we use a clear rubber band to wrap her hair and only a few bobby pins to secure pieces that were a little too unstructured. For extra texture, pull out some hair by the crown to give added volume to the style. Also, you can leave some pieces of hair to frame your face to give it a soft romantic feel.

Your next style is super organic. You’re going to use a Paul Mitchell neuro wand that has a cone shape. After wanding your hair, spray some KMS Makeover Spray at your root and shake through. Then spray KMS Sea Salt Spray in your hand and scrunch through hair. To finish the style spray KMS Playable Texture for additional lightweight texture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
sidebraid-225x300Your next style works with straight, or wavy hair! The side braid is a great way to add bohemian/ organic style. To create extra interest, fan out the outside pieces of the braid. This look is very sexy as it opens up the side of the face accentuating feminine features like cheekbones. It’s even better if you do a deep side part.  If you need your waves to have a little more stamina, spray the interior sections of hair lightly with KMS Medium Hold Hairspray. This will give your waves more body without becoming hard or unnatural looking.

 

 

 

 

 
topknot-225x300Our last style is one that has been on the rise for the past few months. Top knots are super cute and can be done professionally, creatively, and organically. You can make the top knot sleek for a professional look, or you can wear it with wavy hair to a party.

Rocky Barnes Inspired Spring Color

Rocky Barnes Inspired Spring Color

Every once in a while, a hairdresser gets to choose the fate of their clients hair. It is an honorable privilege to have another person’s hair as your personal canvas. In this scenario, my gorgeous guest allowed me to make a suggestion about highlights for the spring season. Luckily, I had been inspired by model “Rocky Barnes”.  Rocky is a model for all things bohemian and tropical. Her style is everything inside a gypsy’s dream, including her HAIR. Rocky’s hair consists of gorgeous hair painting and babylights to blend the dark root of her hair into the painted ash brown ends. My guest mentioned getting highlights but didn’t know exactly what to ask for. I asked if I could make a suggestion (being that I found my new obsession with Rocky Barnes) based on her facial features and skin tone. She actually resembled the model closely in those aspects and would look great with this highlight technique and color. After showing her the photo, she became obsessed as well!
So here is my starting canvas. The root color resembled Rocky’s.

And this was our final result.

My first step was to weave lighter pieces of hair. I chose to frame her face closely with the highlights matching Rocky’s technique and did a couple pieces throughout her hair. For these highlights I used Oxycur lightener with 30 volume developer.

The second step was to create the hairpainting in between the foils. I used Oxycur lightener with 10 volume just to shift the color and create a chocolate backdrop for the lighter babylights.

After processing, I first rinsed out the pieces lightened with 10 volume and toned them with 6BP in Colorance with blue lotion. That processed for 15 minutes and was rinsed along with the babylight foils.

My final step was to tone the babylights. I used 9GB and 9BA in equal parts to tone her babylights and processed for 15 minutes also.

And this is the final result!

Beauty Addicts Gets Hands On at Aurelio Salon

Beauty Addicts Gets Hands On at Aurelio Salon

Here at Aurelio Salon, we pride ourselves on being a salon highly educated in the latest techniques and trends within the beauty industry. We constantly educate ourselves from the best of the best, and now we are sharing our learning experience with you! At both of our locations, we will be receiving hands on instruction from Samantha, a Beauty Addicts Cosmetics Representative! She will be giving our guest hands on instruction for the most current makeup trends found on the runway for fashion week 2015/2016.

The first of two trends that were focused on consisted of “strobing” which is a contra-contour technique. Instead of deepening the strong structured features on our face with darker colors, you will now concentrate on what is formerly known as highlighting. This leaves the skin with a pearlescent glow, giving the face a young refreshed and awake appearance.

The second trend spotted on the runway is the pop of color. Although this look isn’t technically new, it is one that is evolved through generations to match current trends. Deep evergreen hues and shades of navy shadows are boldly striking on the eye. Bold eyes are softened with a light pink lip.

So if you are interested in learning how to apply these looks on your face, we invite you to meet with Samantha! She will be visiting us here in Howell on March 23rd and on March 8th in our Toms River location. We will have gift sets available to recreate the looks you learn as well.

Find Your “Spring-Spiration”

Find Your “Spring-Spiration”

There’s no better excuse to switch up your look then a new season! Spring is quickly approaching and there so much to look forward to; a new wardrobe, freshening up your makeup, and of course, your hair! There can be many approaches when it comes to changing up your style, from the subtle to the dramatic. The choice it all yours!

beauty-addicts

When it comes to fashion transitioning into a spring-filled wardrobe is so easy! Try switching out your darker colors for lighter and brighter colors and incorporate some pastel shades. Also, try adding in pops of color if you’re not quite ready for such a dramatic change! A classic spring look is adding some floral patterns. The great thing about fashion in any season is being to customize to fit your personal style, it’s all about what makes you feel comfortable and confident! Whether you’re more edgy or feminine and light you can find a spring style perfect for you!  When looking for a little “spring-spiration” there are many places to look from your social media like Instagram and Pinterest to your fave celebrity it’s so easy to get inspired!

When it comes to your makeup there are many options to spruce up your look for the spring time. Spring is the perfect time to experiment with color and get playful. It’s time to ditch those dark vampy winter lips and bring out more of your fun & bright lipsticks. If you are into more a fresh or natural look spring is a perfect time to break out your simpler looks featuring a glowy complexion! With the newest makeup trend of “strobing” seen on many cat walks at NYC Fashion Week this year, spring is the perfect time to play around with this technique! If you are up for something new and exciting try introducing new colors into your eye looks and lipsticks! Try adding some rosy tones or teals (if you’re feeling daring) to your eyes or maybe break out a bright fuchsia or coral lip stick- it’s in your hands!

Last but not at all least, your hairstyle! Whether your change is as simple as switching up your part or a complete color change, there are so many options! If you’re someone that typically wears a very straight style try going for a loose and beachy wave (after all summer is that far away!). Or say you usually go for a classic deep side part try out a more bohemian & easy-going middle part. If you’re up for a dramatic change maybe try going for a lighter and more sun kissed look after the gloom of the winter time. If you’re maybe up for a little bit more fun change, try amping u your look with a fun color! Another great option if you are not quite ready for such a big change just try out some fun up-dos and half up styles (Pinterest and Youtube are crawling with tutorials to help you!).

Golden Globes Red Carpet

The 2016 Golden Globes Red Carpet was full of not only jaw-dropping dresses and ensembles, but also many dazzling hairstyles! A look that was quite popular was a very sleek and easy to wear wave that really let these stars dresses and accessories shine. Stars like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Olivia Wilde rocked this look in a center part while Giuliana Rancic and Emmy Rossum took a different approach with a deep side part. They all looked breath-taking with this simple but totally classy look. This look has been super popular lately and rocked by stars and also everyday women found all over social-media like Instagram and Pinterest. I personally love this look because of its wear ability while looking super put together. This style can be rocked with many lengths of hair as well from your “Lobs” to your “Rapunzel” types. This look is incredibly versatile and is great for work, a girls-night out, or any special event.

 

This look can be created with ease with the help of some KMS California products and the proper tools. A style starts in the shower, the products you use here easily prep your hair for the style you will be doing. Begin with the Silk Sheen Shampoo and Conditioner to give your hair that smooth and sleek appearance. Towel-dry your hair and Spray some Hair Play Playable Texture to add texture that won’t leave you feeling sticky. Then work in some Tame Frizz Taming Creme from mid-shaft to ends to give your hair that sleek finish. Finish off your product application with the Free Shape Quick Blow-Dry Spray to cut your drying time in half and add heat protection. Start the style by choosing your part whether that be that classic side swept look or an easy going middle part. Begin blow drying with either a vented paddle brush or a larger round brush to smooth your hair first. Then go in with a curling wand or simply use a traditional curling iron without the clip to add some wave, you can exclude the very ends to give a more undone look or alternate the direction of the curls for a more natural look. Remember hairstyles are customizable, make it your own and have fun!
