Get Ready For Fall With These 4 Trends!

Get Ready For Fall With These 4 Trends!

So, tell me! What do you look forward to with the season’s change? Here are a few of my favorite things: Pumpkin everything, colorful leaves, cozy oversized sweaters, and boots…and it wouldn’t be right not to mention new makeup trends!

 

 

 

This season is all about fusing bold patterns with vibrant colors and textured finishes for a look that is perfectly mismatched. We are seeing quite a bit leopard print this year.

The Motives In The Mix Palette create the perfect building blocks for your look, and layer with Motives Liquid Metal Eye Shadow to add dimension for a stunning effect. Spice up your lips this fall with this lipstick duo in Pumpkin Spice. The bold pairing of burnt pumpkin and brick red gives your lips dimension that leaves an impact. Wear them together or separately, the choice is yours. Don’t forget that your skin needs some TLC! Rejuvenate it with just one spritz of Lumière de Vie Rosé Refresher.

 

4 Different Looks

I asked some of my friends to help me out and try my latest fall must have beauty products, then I put together some trendy outfits for them. I LOVE that all of these looks use the same products, yet they all look so different!

 

Clarissa Jones

So, tell me! What do you look forward to with the season’s change? Here are a few of my favorite things: Pumpkin everything, colorful leaves, cozy oversized sweaters, and boots…and it wouldn’t be right not to mention new makeup trends!

 

I found this cute leopard print sweater and added these comfortable, and versatile black boots. I saw these earrings and knew they were perfect for this outfit!!
Here is how Clarissa created this makeup look:
1. Begin by using Motives Eye Base.
2. Apply Dark Purple (color on the left) from Motives In The Mix Palette in the crease blending out with the Motives Blending Brush.
3. Apply Motives Liquid Metal Eye Shadow-Mystic on the mobile lid.

4. Blend the Black color from In the Mix Palette in outer V with Motives Blending Brush.

5. Apply Motives Liquid Metal Eye Shadow-Nirvana on lower lash line about 1/2 way across.
6. Finish lower lash line with Motives Liquid Metal Eye Shadow-Renegade.
7. Create winged eyeliner using Motives Angled Brush with Motives Gel Eyeliner-Little Black Dress.
8. Apply Motives Fiberlush mascara on top and bottom lashes.
9. Mix both colors from Motives Pumpkin Spice Lipstick and apply to lips.

Brittany Kimble

I decided to put Brittany in this comfy sweater, jeans and these neutral boots.  I dressed her up a little with a larger earring, but kept the necklace simple.
Here’s what she used to create her look:
Foundation: custom blend
Under eye setting powder: Motives banana powder
Blush: ginger
Eyes: little black dress for dramatic liner, Nefertiti, Aphrodite from dynasty palette on the wing with the two liquid shadow colors and demure palette for the crease.
Lips: pumpkin spice lipstick duo
Face: Miami glow and sculpting duo

Kimberly Mareno

I dressed Kim up in this warm sweater dress.  I love that it has long sleeves.  I choose these high suede boots and larger purse.  She can definitely rock these earrings and bold bracelet.

Here’s how she created her look:

1. Begin by applying Motives Eye Base with a concealer brush all over the eye, from lash to brow.
2. Press Vanilla Motives Pressed Eye Shadow all over the lid with the Motives All Over Shadow Brush in order to set the eye base .
3. Using the eye blender brush, place Cappuccino Motives Pressed Eye Shadow into the crease of the eye.
4. Apply Mystic Motives Liquid Metal Eye Shadow all over the lid with a blending brush.
5. Blend the edges with a blending brush so they are soft.
6. Apply the center color in the Motives In The Mix Palette into the crease to create more depth.
7. Line the eye with Motives Gel Eye Liner-Little Black Dress on the top of the upper lash line and between the lashes.
8. Using a Detail Brush soften the top edge of the eye liner with the center color from the In The Mix Palette, causing it to look double lined. The black liner should fade into the brown shadow, which then fades into the Mystic Motives Liquid Metal Eye Shadow.
9. Using a smudge brush, line the bottom lash line with the center color from the In The Mix Palette.
10. Apply another coat of Mystic Liquid Metal Eye Shadow all over the lid with a blending brush to make the color pop.
8. Finish off the look with Motives Fiber Lush Mascara.
11. Apply Red Currant Motives Lip Crayon to the outer line of the lip. Fill in softly so the lipstick stays in longer.
12. Apply the red color of the Motives Pumpkin Spice Lipstick all over the lip.
13. Apply the lighter color in the center of the lip.

It wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t participate too!!

 

I decided to embrace the leopard print, and have to admit, I normally wouldn’t choose these bold boots! ¬†I loved this handbag and thought they should go together. This jacket will keep me warm during the cold Wisconsin “Fall” and it too have a touch of animal print.

Are You Capitalizing on THE Biggest Trends This Year?

Are You Capitalizing on THE Biggest Trends This Year?

We are almost half way through the year, and so I have to ask: Are you capitalizing on one of the biggest trends this year?

In 2018 we have been seeing the customer taking a bigger role in the beauty products that make up their beauty routines.¬† It’s a shift that mirrors the industry’s move towards greater diversity. ¬†And customized beauty trend IS the new luxury.¬† Are you capitalizing on this trend by offering personalized beauty products?

Customized Products

I have always believed in providing exceptional customer service through one to one marketing, and though we live in a technological world, people are wanting that human interaction.¬† I have already touched on the trend that websites are using chat bots in my article¬†10 Salon & Spa Trends in¬†2018 to give a more tailored customer service approach to give a more personalized recommendation. So the ability to offer personalized beauty care products has so many benefits and is a way to WOW your client and ensure 100% customer satisfaction, not to mention, it is FUN ūüôā

Let’s look at some of the categories that you can offer that are customized just for the client.

  1. Foundation
    Shopping for the correct foundation can be a challenge for most people, and so many settle for the wrong one. Why not offer custom blend foundation that you are able to formulate & customize it to the exact match their skin? You combine the exact foundation pigment with the color of the skin tone to create the perfect custom blend foundation.Motives liquid foundation offers 11% pigmentation, while typical foundation has 6-7% pigment. And you have the ability to increase the coverage  with enhancers that have 28% pigment. Skin care additives are then added: toners, modifiers, moisturizers and skin serums.With Motives Custom Blend makeup solutions, you are able to formulate and mix the perfect texture, and even decide on cream or powder too. You can literally blend anything:  concealers, eye shadows and color correctors.  The possibilities are endless with even blushes, bronzers, shimmer powders, brow pomades and lip stains.

    Motives Custom Blend Foundation
    Some of the Motives Custom Blend Foundation Advantages are:
    *Pure mineral Bases
    *Oil Free
    *Talc free
    *Paraben Free
    *Gluten Free
    *Non- Comedogenic (will not clog your pores)
    *Various Serum Additives
    *Create any color

  2. Skincare
    While categorizing different skin types into dry, oily or combination has been the norm for years, consumers no longer want a one size fits all.  They want an expert to customize a regimen just for them.  And with the addition of new revolutionary ingredients on the market, it is so beneficial to find the best products for each individual.When a skin analysis can be done properly, various products can be prescribed for not only skin types but also concerns such as acne, anti-aging, hyper-pigmentation, eczema, etc.
    With an increased awareness in face mapping and beauty from the inside out approach, there is definitely a need for our next category.Skin mapping skin care customization
  3. Nutritional analysisClients are always asking us questions about the right vitamins for their hair skin & nails, and as beauty professionals, we are also the first to see the effects of various deficiencies.¬† And you have to admit, that identifying areas of nutrition where they need extra supplementation is a difficult task-we haven’t typically had the education. Harder still is looking through the endless assortment of vitamins and minerals that claim to improve their health and well-being, but in fact are making no difference at all.Consider offering a customized nutritional analysis. It is a tool that can help them chose the proper supplementation regimen based on their diet and lifestyle.
  4. Gene Analysis
    Genetic testing services are a major trend right now and over the last few decades, developments in the science of genetics and technology have transformed our understanding of disease.¬† This development in medicine has made early intervention and effective management a real possibility for everyone.Today we know the degree to which diet influences the balance between healthy and disease states may depend on an individual’s genetic makeup which can effect their hair, skin and nails. With a raise in the health conscious consumer, offering a powerful tool that like genetic analysis can help develop a practice and its wellness program by introducing patients to advantages of testing and improved health outcomes.Customized haircare
  5. Customized hair care products
    You should all be recommending the perfect hair are products to all of your clients, but let’s not skirt around the D word…diversion.¬† It’s time to take control of the sale back and offer products that can not and will not be found in stores or websites.¬† By offering customized shampoos and conditioners that they have to have you mix up, they have to come to you to get it.¬† You have the ability to mix in color toners and have them pick the perfect scent just for them. Clients LOVE it!!

Not only does offering personalized products ensure 100% customer satisfaction, it is also very profitable!! ¬†Think of the possibilities, and the excitement it makes! Custom blend cosmetics yield a 200-300% profit alone, which is a plus! ¬†And then by incorporating more personalization…It’s a win win situation for everyone ūüôā

 

If you are interested in offering any of these personalized products, I can help!  Just fill this out this form completely and I will get in touch:
