Eye Makeup Fallout Protector

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to tell you all about a great new product that I discovered back in March in LA while visiting Frends Beauty Supply. I wanted to wait until I used it several times before doing a post on it. Its called "The Eye Makeup Fallout Protector".  I met the creator at Frends and suggested, that she allow a few makeup artists to try the product. I thought that would be the best way to get honest feedback.  Its a silicone shield with a stainless steel handle. Very cute, and its washable too! I believe your clients will like the fact that its a non-adhesive protector. At first, I thought my issue was going to be that I have to actually hold it with one hand while doing eye shadow with the other. Not an issue at all. It was very easy to use, and you can also use it without the stainless steel handle. Also, making adjustments with how you position the protector is simple, just move it. No adhesive, no tapes, and no powder to dust away. I love it, and I plan to purchase more. For more information on the Eye Makeup Fallout Protector, visit and let me know what you think.

Beauty Tip Of The Week

Beauty Tip of The Week

When applying eyeliner, remember to consider the shape and size of the eye.

OC Eight Mattifying Gel

As makeup artist, we are  always on 'shine patrol', especially when working on film & tv.  I'm always searching for the perfect product to control shine while working with actors/actresses on camera.  Over the 13 years of my makeup career, I've tried many anti-shine/primer type products to matte the skin.  About six years ago I found a product from one of the department store brands that worked wonderfully and was used throughout the tv/film world by makeup artists all over the country.   The product has since been discontinued now for at least three years.
After hearing that the product was discontinued, I was forced to start my search over and continue using products that I was not particularly happy with.  Most times, I would set an actor's makeup with plenty of powder.  This lasted until a fellow Esthetician friend gave me a product called 'OC Eight' to use on a particular actor that was actually one of her facial clients.  The actor's skin was one of the oilest that I've ever worked with.  The product claimed to work for eight hours.  Although the actor only worked on camera for two, the matiffying gel kept his shine away for his entire time on set.
Since then, I've used OC Eight mattifying gel on all of my clients and have seen some amazing results.  I believe in this product 100% and have recommended it to many makeup artists in the film/tv industry.  It simply WORKS (on ALL skin types)!
