The Newest COVERGIRL Is…


Yesterday, September 20, 2017, COVERGIRL announced Ayesha Curry -- star of “Ayesha's Home Kitchen” on the Food Network and author of national bestseller “The Seasoned Life” -- as the brand's newest COVERGIRL. Ayesha’s joyful energy, big personality, and strong viewpoints and perspectives on the world around her embody COVERGIRL’s philosophy of empowering women to fearlessly and relentlessly pursue their passions and boldly express themselves to the world.

“My philosophy is all about seeking joy and creating balance in life. I've shared a lot about how I do this with food, family and faith, and now - through my partnership with COVERGIRL - I want to share how makeup helps create those moments of happiness, confidence and self-expression,” says Ayesha Curry.

Curry's first role as a new COVERGIRL will be starring in a campaign supporting the soon-to-be-launched Peacock Flare Mascara. Peacock Flare Mascara ($7.99 -$10.49) helps get that end look of full-fanned, thick-lush lashes. Its feather fan brush consists of alternating layers of bristles that ensure the formula dispenses evenly across the lashes. The rhythmic waves of action between the short and long bristles enables the separation and flared out look of the lashes that instantly turns up the drama of an eye look.



Shades:
  • Extreme Black
  • Intense Black
  • Jet Black
  • Black
  • Black Brown

Waterproof available in:
  • Extreme Black
  • Black
  • Black Brown

Peacock Flare Mascara will be available for sale nationwide in November.

COVERGIRL Issa Rae’s Red Carpet Beauty Look at the 2017 Emmy Awards


Last night at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards Issa Rae looked simply flawless in a stunning Vera Wang gown and luminous makeup. TME couldn’t resist getting the scoop from Issa Rae’s amazing makeup artist, Joanna Simkin on how to achieve this amazing look at home. Working with COVERGIRL Cosmetics, Joanna shares all you need to know!


Inspiration: "Issa's Emmys look was inspired by the vibrant red Vera Wang dress she wore. We agreed that we wanted to keep her skin luminous and eyes a soft smolder.” - Joanna Simkin


Get The Look:
Face 
The Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation was perfect for achieving that fresh and flawless skin we were going for. I loved that the coverage was buildable yet kept the skin hydrated at the same time.

Eyes
For her eyes we wanted a soft yet smokey dark lash look and used LashBlast Volume mascara to really give the lashes a voluminous and full look.

Lips
Since we went for a darker eye, we knew we wanted to keep the lips simple. The Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick in Gelebrity was perfect it was super pigmented and was the perfect nude to compliment the overall glam.


COVERGIRL products used: COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation in Soft Sable, COVERGIRL Lash Blast Volume in Charcoal and Black, COVERGIRL Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick in Gelebrity, COVERGIRL truNaked Eyeshadow Palette in Nudes, COVERGIRL Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner in Black Onyx, and COVERGIRL Easy Breezy Brow Powder Kit in Rich Brown

NYFW Badgley Mischka, Coach & Michael Costello


The makeup at Badgley Mischka was inspired by chic and carefree beauty – a girl on a coastal holiday in Capri. Coach’s beauty looks were completed with “beyond nude” semi-matte manicures that focused on the health and natural beauty of the nails. Michael Costello’s show illustrated a modern secret garden inclusive of all races, bodies and sexual orientation, brought to life with ethereal, angel-like makeup.

Badgley Mischka Spring / Summer 2018 Presentation


    
“The inspiration for this look comes from a girl on a coastal holiday in Capri, Italy that represents the chic and carefree Italian beauty.” said Gucci Westman, lead makeup artist for Badgley Mischka on behalf of INGLOT Cosmetics.


Skin: “The INGLOT AMC Cream Foundation was used as the base to create beautiful, even skin. The INGLOT AMC Liquid Illuminator #70 was used on the high planes of the face including the cheekbone, brow bone and tear duct to highlight the face.”  

Cheeks: “On the cheeks bones I applied INGLOT Freedom System Blush in #124 to add a subtle color and highlight to the face.”

Eyes: “To create a rusty transparent eye, I used the INGLOT AMC Liquid Illuminator #70 as a primer and base for INGLOT Freedom System Eye Shadow where I mixed shades #449, #607, #609 and #614. Then eyebrows were filled in with INGLOT’s Eyebrow Pencil and to complete the eyes, I used INGLOT Lash Enhancing Mascara to the top lashes only.”

Lips: “To finish the look, I mixed 3 different shades of INGLOT Matte Lipstick in #229, #408, and #438 to create a matte metallic red lip.”

INGLOT Creates “Beyond Nude” Semi-Matte Manicures for Coach 
Spring/Summer 2018


At the Coach Spring/Summer ‘18 runway show, the theme for nails is one step beyond nude – Raw, simple yet manicured and naturally beautiful. Lead nail artist Naomi Yasuda created simple, semi-matte chic nails using INGLOT products, with an emphasis on unique treatments that fuse polish and care. The focus was on the health of the nail, showcasing its raw, natural beauty while using a unique ridge-filling treatment to create an even surface. To create the look, Yasuda used the below products step-by-step:


Inspiration: “This is especially great for models during busy show seasons,” said Yasuda. “The treatment will strengthen the nails for their next show, too.”


  • To start off the manicure, Naomi used INGLOT pH Cuticle Remover. “This is my favorite and one of the best! It softens hard cuticles and exfoliates loose skin on the nails. We then gently push and trim the cuticle to give the nail a nice clean look,” said Yasuda.
  • Nails were then filed and buffed with INGLOT Nail File 180/240 Blue and INGLOT Nail Buffer to create a soft, smooth finish.
  • Lastly, INGLOT Ridge Filler was applied to create a semi-matte finish and make the nail healthier and smoother, filling in any damage or misshapen surfaces to the nails. The treatment, unique to INGLOT, evens the nail plate and conditions with algae extract.


 INGLOT Debuts Ethereal Beauty Looks for Michael Costello Spring/Summer ’18


“We’re converting the idea that glamour is something reserved for the elite,” said Michaela Polaco, lead makeup artist for INGLOT. “The inspiration comes from our desire to accentuate women’s natural features. We achieved this by creating very supple, fresh and radiant skin, an effortless, wearable yet sexy eye and a lip that looks stained from a glass of wine. The palette is ethereal yet evokes the thought, ‘I could pull that off.’”




Skin: “To create a dreamy effect on the skin, I mixed INGLOT AMC Face & Body Illuminator with INGLOT HD Corrective Primer as a base, so the skin radiates through the makeup look and lasts throughout the night.”

Cheek: “After the base was applied, on the apple of the cheek I applied INGLOT Sparking Dusts #02 & #03 (frosted loose powder in light nude and bronze) to give skin a shimmery look accentuating each woman’s glow.”


Eyes: “I wanted to maintain the ethereal feel on the eyes, so I mixed INGLOT AMC Pure Pigment in #115, a holographic rose gold shade, with INGLOT Duraline – It’s a magic serum that turns powder products into cream or liquid. This created a long lasting, high-shine metallic element that mimics a glossy lid, without the mess.”

Lips: “To finish the look, I applied INGLOT HoldOn Lip Primer, lined the lips with INGLOT Soft Precision Lipliner #56 and finished with INGLOT Sleeks Cream Lip Paint #91, a creamy, rosy long-wear paint with a glossy yet flat texture.”

All INGLOT products used to create this look are available at more than 600 retail locations worldwide and online at INGLOT Cosmetics!
