MUD, sponsor oficial de make-up al competitiilor MISS USA® si MISS TEEN USA® 2014

 

Make-Up Designory a incheiat un parteneriat cu organizatia Miss Universe, devenind, anul acesta, sponsorul si furnizorul de produse cosmetice pentru doua competitii: MISS USA® si MISS TEEN USA®.

Primul dintre cele doua prestigioase evenimente, MISS USA®, va avea loc in data de 8 Iunie, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, si va fi transmis in direct de televiziunea americana NBC. Competitia MISS TEEN USA® va avea loc in Nassau, Bahamas, in 2 August. Sponsorizarea acestor evenimente de catre MUD are doua componente: pentru realizarea look-ului concurentelor vor fi folosite doar produse ale brandului, iar machiajul va fi aplicat de o echipa de make-up artisti absolventi ai scolilor de machiaj MUD din New York si Los Angeles.

In lumina acestor evenimente, in perioada urmatoare, vom prezenta pe blog o serie de tutoriale video cu machiaje realizate de make-up artistii MUD, special concepute pentru concurentele de la cele doua competitii. Va fi exemplificata realizarea diverselor tipuri de look, de la cel natural, de zi, pana la cel glamour, de seara.

Cum sa-ti cureti pensulele de machiaj

 
 
 

Exista trei lucruri importante care definesc cariera ta de make-up artist: ustensilele pe care le folosesti, modul in care comunici cu clientii si talentul tau.

Ustensilele te ajuta sa duci la bun sfarsit fiecare job, iar modul in care le intretii si cum te prezinti cu ele in fata clientilor sunt indicatori esentiali ai profesionalismului tau. Daca folosesti pensule murdare atunci cand machiezi o clienta, cu siguranta aceasta nu va fi in siguranta si nici foarte incantata de serviciile tale.

Pensulele MUD sunt produse de calitate exceptionala, proiectate pentru a fi folosite intens de catre profesionisti. Cele mai fine fibre sintetice si naturale au fost selectate pentru a crea fiecare pensula, oferind precizie, perfecta functionalitate si durabilitate (daca sunt intretinute corespunzator).

Iata cateva sfaturi despre cum sa cureti si sa pastrezi pensulele:

  • Pentru a le face sa dureze mai mult, curata-le dupa fiecare folosire cu o solutie speciala produsa in acest scop;
  • Introdu doar perii pensulei in solutia de curatare, apoi sterge-i bine, folosind un servetel curata;
  • Ca sa previi inmuierea lipiciului, nu introdu pensula cu baza de prindere a firelor de par in solutia de curatare si ai grija sa nu lasi pensulele in respectivul lichid pentru o perioada indelungata;
  • Pentru a pastra forma initiala a pensulei, foloseste-o dintr-un unghi lateral atunci cand aplici produsele, nu impingand-o direct inspre piele cu varful;

Pensulele MUD sunt o investitie pe termen lung - daca le intretii cu grija, le vei putea folosi ani de zile.

Cum sa aplici fondul de ten compact MUD

Produse MUD utilizate:

Fond de ten compact: CB3
Pudra pulbere: Buttercream
Ruj: Rose Clay
Luciu de buze: Bare
Fard de obraz: Rose Petal
Sprancene: Espresso Eye Color
Farduri de pleoape: Ice, Bone, Tinsel, Graphite
Creion pentru ochi: Black

In postarea anterioara (Ce inseamna ”cosmetice intens pigmentate”?), am explicat pe scurt motivele pentru care fondul de ten compact de la MUD este atat de versatil. Desigur, am mentionat si faptul ca este perfect pentru realizarea machiajului de fotografie. Iar pentru ca este sezonul nuntilor, iar toate miresele isi doresc fotografii impecabile, ne-am decis sa relatam mai pe larg modalitatile prin care poti crea un ten perfect cu ajutorul acestui produs.

Cele mai solicitate look-uri de catre mirese si celebritati sunt: o acoperire mata (spre exemplu, Katy Perry), iluminare si umbrire (in stilul lui Kim Kardashian) si, probabil cel mai popular, un aspect fresh si stralucitor (Leah Michelle/ Jennifer Lopez).

O acoperire completa/ O finisare mata

1. Ia o cantitate generoasa de fond de ten compact MUD pe un buretel special.
2. Aplica produsul pe intreaga fata, pornind de la frunte, pe linia maxilarului si spre gat, prin miscari de stippling.
3. Foloseste un corector MUD pentru a omogeniza culoarea pielii, daca este necesar.
4. Pentru a obtine o suprafata neteda si o finisare ultra-mata, fixeaza totul cu o pudra libera, folosind pensula 720 (de dimensiuni mari, cu perii foarte desi).

- Poti sa aplici corectorul fie inainte, fie dupa fondul de ten.
- Termenul de ”stippling” desemneaza o miscare repetata, rapida, de aplicare a produsului.
- Pentru a obtine o acoperire perfecta, aplica primul strat de fond de ten printr-un blending intens, iar apoi repeta aceleasi miscari pentru cel de-al doilea strat.

Iluminare si umbrire

Urmeaza pasii de la sectiunea anterioara, iar apoi:

1. Confera luminozitate chipului, folosind pensula 700 (in forma oblica) sau 710 (pensula rotunda, pentru pudra), pentru a aplica nuanta Lemon Cream a fardului de obraz MUD, in partea superioara a pometilor, intre sprancene si de-a lungul piramidei nazale, sub ochi, deasupra liniei maxilarului si a barbiei.
2. Pentru a contura fata, aplica pudra bronzanta MUD Endless Summer cu ajutorul pensulei 510 (sub forma de evantai), 700 sau 710. Fixeaza produsul de-a lungul osului zigomatic, prin miscari ascendente.
3. Pentru a accentua conturul realizat si pentru a crea umbre, aplica putin produs si in afara liniei trasate. Nu uita de blending!
4. Pentru a defini forma nasului, aplica pudra bronzanta, pornind de la baza coltului intern al sprancenei pana spre extremitati.
5. Pentru a imblanzi trasaturile unei fete de forma patrata, contureaza si colturile externe ale fruntii. Astfel vei crea iluzia unei fete ovale.


- Prin accentele de luminozitate poti scoate in evidenta trasaturile chipului, in timp ce umbrele au un efect invers (creeaza dimensiune).
- Nu toate fizionomiile necesita folosirea tehnicii de iluminare si umbrire! Foloseste-o doar atunci cand trebuie.
- Poti realiza aceasta tehnica si folosind produse cremoase, doar ca va trebui sa le aplici inainte de a fixa machiajul cu pudra.

Fresh & Translucid

1. Combina o cantitate mica de face-primer cu fond de ten. (Este mult mai usor sa realizezi acest amestec pe o paleta speciala, folosind o spatula.)
2. Aplica produsul rezultat cu ajutorul pensulei 940 pentru fond de ten sau cu un buretel.
3. Pentru un strop de prospetime si culoare, defineste-ti pometii cu un blush cremos . Poti alege dintre nuantele Sweet Cheeks (Pink), Tulip (Coral) sau Sun Rose (Terracotta), folosind un buretel sau tamponand usor cu degetele.

Ce inseamna ”cosmetice intens pigmentate”?

cosmetice online cosmetice pigmentate make-up designory fond de ten compact machiaj rezistent produse MUD
 
 
 
 

Ai aflat ca produsele MUD sunt intens pigmentate! Dar stii ce inseamna de fapt acest lucru? Produsele noastre au fost create pentru uzul profesional; ele contin mai multa culoare si au un grad mai mare de acoperire decat celelalte produse.De exemplu, un fond de ten lichid obisnuit are o pigmentatie de aproximativ 15-20%, in timp ce fondul de ten compact de la MUD are peste 40% pigmenti in compozitie.

Printre beneficiile pe care le prezinta produsele intens pigmentate mentionam:

  1. este necesara o cantitate mai mica de produs pentru o acoperire perfecta;
  2. sunt mult mai versatile;
  3. au o persistenta mai indelungata.

Ai nevoie doar de putin produs, pentru rezultate maxime!

Sa luam fondul de ten MUD, spre exemplu. Pentru o acoperire perfecta, vei folosi doar jumatate din cantitatea pe care o aplici din fondul de ten obisnuit. Este recomandat sa il aplici cu un buretel special sau cu pensula 940 . Secretul obtinerii unui ten impecabil este sa folosesti culoarea sau combinatia de culori potrivita pentru tenul tau si un blending corect. Acest tip de machiaj este ideal pentru fotografie, evenimente speciale, nunta, film si editoriale.

Versatilitate = poti folosi produsul in mai multe feluri.

Fondul de ten cremos de la MUD are o formula pe baza de silicon si poate fi combinat cu alte produse, cum ar fi Face Primer-ul si sistemul aerograf MUD HD Air . De exemplu, daca doresti o acoperire translucida, pentru un aspect fresh, tineresc, poti combina un strop de primer cu putin fond de ten. Produsul va aluneca frumos pe piele, oferind un look natural. Pentru zonele cu probleme care necesita o acoperire mai mare, precum petele intunecate sau acneea, poti aplica putin produs pe zona afectata, difuzand-ul ulterior.

Produsele intens pigmentate au o persistenta mai mare.

Cel de-al doilea element care determina culoarea/acoperirea produselor cosmetice are denumirea de ”vehicul”. Acest termen desemneaza elementul care ofera proprietatile de miscare a produsului pe suprafata pielii in timpul aplicarii (cum este siliconul, in compozitia fondului de ten). Uneori, cu cat este mai mare cantitatea sa in produs, cu atat mai mari sunt sansele sa alunece de pe piele. Un produs mai pigmentat si cu mai putin ”vehicul” va fi mult mai rezistent, deoarece ii va fi greu sa alunece.

Distreaza-te cu produsele tale de make-up! Doar practica te poate ajuta sa ajungi la perfectiune. Viziteaza canalul nostru de Youtube pentru a viziona tutoriale si incearca diverse stiluri si tehnici de machiaj. Produsele MUD enumerate mai jos au fost create cu o formula intens pigmentata:

  • Fondurile de ten MUD
  • Corectoarele MUD
  • Fardurile de pleoape MUD
  • Pudrele compacte MUD

The new shop in Bucharest provides a great opportunity for those who want to buy our products, get a glamorous makeover or join our workshops and demonstrations.

Make-up Designory is a well known brand in Romania. For several years now, it has become the choice of make-up artists all around the country, thanks to our reliable online shop and qualified customer service. Nevertheless, questions about an eventual opening of a chain store kept arising. It was time to take things to the next level, so we thought that the best place to make our great entrance was the capital itself, the lovely, vibrant Bucharest.

This city is the heart of the Romanian fashion and beauty industry, the spot where some of the most famous beauty gurus, models, fashion journalists and bloggers meet. It's a place filled with history, an architectural jewelry and the main cultural hub in Romania.

The grand event took place on December 16th, in a fancy venue, right in the center of the city, near a modern and very popular shopping center. Our team was inspired to create a fabulous, fully equipped shop, where make-up addicts could gather, chat and enhance their natural beauty, in a friendly and modern environment.

The news spread very quickly, so plenty of artists, make-up fans and industry-related people showed up at the opening, eager to live the MUD experience, to get in touch with our stunning make-up artists, to be amazed by our luxurious professional cosmetics and to accustom with the whole concept and philosophy that we are known for. And they loved it!

The Pasadena Civic Center was surrounded by beauty enthusiasts over the weekend with a line of shoppers waiting to get their hands on the latest beauty tools and to see their favorite make-up artists at this year’s IMATS Los Angeles 2014.  The sold out show featured a slew of beauty product companies, schools and more.  Once you were in the door, the music and sounds of happy shoppers filled the air the entire weekend.

This year’s Pro Night was the most successful Pro Night in the IMATS history, tripling in size of attendees on Friday night, just before the show opened to the public.  The MUD booth featured Disney actress and commercial model Jaida Benjamin, as the MUD artists demonstrated several looks including the Deep Forest trend.

The MUD booth in the special effects hall featured Karl Zundel and Karrie Ann Sillay with a group of 2013 grads working on a tall, full body alien creature.  The character suit and prosthetic appliances were equipped with mechanical hands and a light show that have had the team in preparation mode for over 3 months.  Artists Dalton Kutsch (2007 MUD Grad) and Casey Love (1998 MUD Grad) also demonstrated some amazing sculptures throughout the weekend.

Kevin James Bennett’s presentation in the MUD booth and onstage as IMATS’ keynote speaker included a demonstration of a clean fresh look, a colorful look for the bold and the beautiful, as well as a classy evening look.  Giving out some of his favorite beauty secrets, Bennett wowed the crowd with his simple methods of getting the perfect foundation setting.

Beto Franca was back just in the US from Brazil, just in time for IMATS.  Showing off his amazing airbrush and body painting, the audience stood in awe at the intricate details from start to finish. Meanwhile, in the special effects room, Face Off cast members Cat and Niko created a Labrinth Hoggle using multiple pieces of prosthetic appliances.

The IMATS 2014 events are off to a great start.  Next stop is New York in April at Pier 94.

The Man Behind IMATS and Make-up Artist Magazine: Michael Key

 
IMATS Ticket Winners
 
MUD Los Angeles
 
Michael Key and Deverill Weekes

With IMATS Los Angeles just around the corner, the buzz surrounding this huge industry event is deafening. To give you an idea of how big, let’s just say 10K tickets were sold and over 200 vendors will be present. The show offers excellent make-up educations classes taught by the industry’s best, live on-stage presentations, special make-up effects demonstrations, show-only offers by the best make-up brands, Battle of the Brushes student competition and more!

How did something that was just a “trial” become so popular? Last night, when Deverill Weekes interviewed Michael Key, make-up artist and the man behind IMATS and Make-up Artist Magazine, we got a simple answer: there was a need for it.

Michael is a musician who was caught in a twist of fate. When asked what started his career in make-up, he replied, “music was my first love, but it wasn’t taking. I’ve always loved movies, and I came across ‘Cinefex’ a magazine that covers behind the scenes movie make-up. It had a step-by-step on how to sculpt, and I thought, `I could do that’. So, I went to a hobby store, purchased plaster and clay and did everything wrong.” It turns out, that after 7 weeks, he successfully sculpted a head. He and his friends used it as a prop to scare people. Then, he got his friends to pitch in to purchase foam latex, so they too could have their own props. Project after project Michael was able to make somewhat of a portfolio, although, he credits his “gift of gab” for getting him his first make-up effects studio job.

Michael’s make-up career includes five Emmy Award nominations, and two wins for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. His make-up credits include Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Planet of the Apes, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Charmed, Batman and Robin and more. (IMDb: Michael Key)

Deverill asked, “Who were your heroes and mentors?” With no hesitation, Michael names Michael Westmore, Jack Dawn, Christopher Tucker, Jack Pierce, Rick Baker, and Dick Smith. He credits Michael Westmore for teaching him lessons you don’t learn in a text book, like how to work with a producer and how to present yourself as a class act. He is grateful for Dick Smith for agreeing to be a part of the first IMATS stating that because of Mr. Smith, it was a success.

During Michael Key’s early career, he noticed that there weren’t enough resources for aspiring artists. Everything he learned was from trial and error and knowledge shared by his peers and mentors. Because this knowledge was so valuable, he was inspired to get it in writing and thus Make-up Artist Magazine was born. He admits that he’s shocked it went beyond the first three issues, but today we celebrate 106 issues of a great publication.

The interview concluded with a raffle for two sets of sold-out IMATS tickets.

Thank you Michael Key for sharing your story with us, and thank you fate for putting Cinefex in his hands!

The wait is over. Face Off Season 6 is here.

 
 
 
 
 

Last night, Make-up Designory hosted a Face Off viewing party to celebrate MUD Alumni Bethany Serpico, Cat Paschen and Niko Gonzalez’s debut on the show. The party was held at Gordon-Biersch in  Burbank, CA. Guests included MUD’s CEO Tate Holland, Director of Education Paul Thompson, MUD LA’s school Director Gil Romero, VP Karl Zundel along with Niko, Cat, school instructors, current students, friends and family. All were there to show their support for our grads, the make-up artist community and fellow cast members.

The room was filled with anticipation, but while the beginning credits began to roll, the room exploded with cheers and applause. Everyone watched as the contestants were met with their first foundation challenge. Models appeared on stage in fanciful wigs and contestants were challenged to create a character make-up in TWO HOURS that expressed who they were as artists. The winners would receive immunity from elimination this week. The second challenge was to create the Beast based on the tale “Beauty and the Beast. “ While everyone worked in teams, there were some teams that showed individuals who were stronger than others.

We’re happy to report that our grads survived the first challenges of the season! Watch the first episode here.

Check out Entertainment Weekly’s Interview with Face Off Judge Ve Neill to find out what she’s specifically looking for when she judges, her favorite challenges and her advice to aspiring Face Off contestants.
