UNDERCOVER AGENT: NICOLE B!

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018
AGE:  33
CITY/STATE:  Denver, CO
PHILOSOPHY: Take good care of your skin.
AM BEAUTY ROUTINE:   Rinse face with water, apply Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Dew It All Eye Gel, Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25, Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush or MAC, MAC Paint Pot in Painterly as an eye shadow base, eye shadow (usually MAC, Pat McGrath, or Urban Decay), Tarte Lights! Camera! Lashes! 4-In-1 Mascara, and a lipstick or gloss from my (probably too big!) collection. My favorite lipstick brands are MAC, Pat McGrath, Chanel and Rimmel London.
PM BEAUTY ROUTINE:  Wash face with Nubian Heritage African Black Soap and a few drops of pure Argan oil before Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Dew It All Eye Gel and MD Complete Wrinkle and Radiance Remedy every night (which I found through Beauty Undercover! It has Retinol and Vitamin C). Over that I use Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Hyaluronic Essence, and either Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Sleeping Cream or First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. A few times a week I exfoliate with Lumene Kirkas Glow Reveal 60 Second Facial and a clay mask mixed with water and honey once or twice a month for a really deep clean. I moisturize my hands and feet with coconut oil every night.
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT PRODUCT:  Lumene skin care products – they have completely changed my skin for the better!
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT COSMETIC:  Lipstick!
MOST EXPENSIVE PRODUCT:  Pat McGrath kits, like the Metalmorphosis 005 Everything Kit. It’s a splurge but the quality and pigmentation of every product is so good!
BEST BARGAIN PRODUCT:  Rimmel London Lipsticks.
 FAVORITE BEAUTY TOOL:  Zoeva Makeup Artist Brush Set (25 brushes). I’ve had these brushes for over 2 years and they still look and work the same as the day I got them. Quality brushes are a good investment.
COMMENTS: You can never have too many lipsticks!

 

STEAL RITA ORA’S GLAMOUR GRAMMY LOOK!

Monday, January 29th, 2018

Rita Ora stunned with an elegance and grace at the 60th Grammy Awards.  Celebrity makeup artist, Kathy Jeung was inspired by the classic shape of Ora’s black Ralph & Russo gown.  Keeping the focus on the singer’s complexion and eyes, she created a satin finish with a touch of radiance and highlighter to accentuate Ora’s bone structure, and a simple glossy eye with lashes that lifted the outer corners of her eyes.

SKIN  Jeung applied Rimmel London Lasting Finish Breathable Primer all over Ora’s cleansed, toned and moisturized face to keep makeup fresh and long-lasting, before applying Insta Conceal & Correct underneath the eyes.  In a tapping motion with her ring finger, she blended Match Perfection Concealer in Light/Medium underneath the eyes and into the rest of the face. Mixing Lasting Finish 25HR Foundation in 303 True Nude with small amount of Good to Glow Highlighter in 003 Soho Glow, Jeung applied it with a flat foundation brush in broad strokes over Ora’s face, and blended with a damp sponge, to provide a natural looking finish. To highlight the tops of Ora’s cheekbones, above her jawline and down length of her nose, she chose Kate Moss Sculpting Palette in Golden Sands and contoured the hollows under her cheekbones with Insta Duo Contour Stick, under her jawbone and chin, using a narrow wedge brush.  Next she applied blush using a rounded brush on the apples of her cheeks and extended towards temples. Finally, Jeung set the look with Insta Fix & Matte Translucent Powder, to keep Ora’s forehead, sides of the nose and cheeks shine-free. (more…)
