Joseph Kellner Hairdresser-Makeup Artist Stila Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Thumbs Up!
Stila’s Sparkle Eyeliners apply smoothly and evenly with excellent color payoff that requires no layering or build-up. I showed swatches of the very first stroke, then a second and third–never going back to get more product. The sponge applicator on these is thin and tapered to a dull point with enough give to easily maneuver around the curves of the lid but not so much that it is floppy. The formula is budge-, smudge-, and water-proof, as advertised, and removal went easily with both Lancome Bi-Facil and Make Up For Ever Sens’Eyes. As you remove, the product will flake off, akin to tube mascaras.
- Bora Bora is a bright, electric blue with soft silver sparkle. Make Up For Ever #5 Aqua Liner seems similar–possibly a little darker.
- Rock Candy is a medium-dark brown with khaki, bronze, and gold shimmer.
- Electric is a bluish teal with brighter blue shimmer. Make Up For Ever #4 Aqua Liner seems similar.
- Sequins is a dark black with silver sparkle.
- Royal is a medium-dark red-toned purple with violet and magenta sparkle. This was the least pigmented shade out of the seven I tried–it wasn’t as dense as the others, a little watery in the overall feel.
- Flash is a olive green with gold and green sparkle.
- Starry is a grayish mauve with multi-colored shimmer. I don’t get gunmetal gray at all here. It seems like it might be similar to Make Up For Ever #14 but it’s harder to call without a side-by-side swatch.
In my travels for store bought makeup I decided to try Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. And to my surprise it did a good job for Photo-Shoot ready makeup. Very good job and I also used it as a highlight. This is a very creamy product that will dry quickly, and I also recommend using your finger tips to blend it in to the area’s needed. The product comes in a plastic tube with much product in it. The applicator is well designed and does not have a large sponge on it, The sponge is pointed for easy applications. Skin looks perfected with this natural coverage concealer for zero flaws and blemishes. And that is very true. Good product. But I also used it for a highlighter during my application during contouring, and it worked well.
This concealer is amazing I was satisfied with it even before blending. It made my models makeup last during the Photo-Shoot and did not dry up or turn oily. Seriously best $7 Dollars ever spent.

There are a lot of of educational sites on the internet were you can go and get simple makeup ideas and watch applications. I am on Facebook and have seen some good channels and also bad channels. Below is a channel I would highly recommend watching on beauty, hair care, makeup products that have been used and the user will let you know how well it worked for them.
Preen.me Is a wonderful channel to get ideas! I love to watch the short makeup applications on this channel. And there is a lot of beauty, nail, and hair care ideas also. Give a look. This is a great way of learning makeup and techniques. I could watch it for hours and you will learn quickly.
I had a client who is a model recommend me a foundation she uses for her skin and has been delighted by also using it for her photo-shoots. I dropped by Sephora this past Saturday to appease her and bought a bottle of Makeup Forever HD Foundations. Two bottles I really purchased one for the foundation and one for contouring the face also. Makeup Forever foundations were created for the very latest high-definition technologies of the film and TV industry, ULTRA HD advanced formulas look invisible on 4K camera and to the naked eye. Perfect for the makeup pros. ULTRA HD foundation feels like a second skin, but still provides medium coverage, and the light-diffusing formula looks natural and makes skin look flawless and feel moisturized. Exclusive 4K Complex guarantees invisible, natural and comfortable makeup. The fluid texture blends in seamlessly and conceals imperfections to unify the skin’s texture. Great for all skin types, and features a full-range of shades to cover all skin-tones. The product worked very well for me. Give it a try my friends. But I will say it is very costly $42.00 per bottle.
