Category Archives: Makeup Artists to Talk About

IMG_20140406_135020I went out this weekend to an all white party, Charleston Wears White III, very sophisticated event. I wore an all white peplum dress by Guess. It was the Scuba and Mesh Mix Peplum Dress in True White. I accessorized with gold hoop earrings with long gold tassels that accented the earrings. My shoes were also white and they came from Guess as well.  I was prepared for my outfit , but I had absolutely no idea how I was going to do my makeup. Below are pictures and my first tutorial of my look.

First I started off playing with colors. I decided to do a pink lip because I love pink lips against my dark brown skin. All of these colors would have worked well because they’re in the cool color family opposed to the warmer color pinks. To make that statement simple, that means all the pinks that I selected complements my skin because they are in the blue family, not colors close to fire cracker red. Needless to say I was indecisive and I chose a totally different color then the swatches above.

I chose this color combo, Lorac frosted pink and Liquid Lip color by Mary Kay

After selecting my lip color I was more than satisfied with it . I paired it with a very soft smokey cat eye and a smile.

After everything was said and done I went out had a blast, (two party’s in one night) came home took the picture above and made my first makeup tutorial, With my cellie…at 2:30 am. Most people would go to bed. I’m a weirdo so I did a makeup tutorial instead. Enjoy ;-)

So I was doing my makeup this morning at my job and when I got finished I said to myself, “self your face is beat to perfection, she looked back at me in the mirror and said, “girl did you forget, this is what you do.” I thought to myself, “oh yea, I am a makeup artist, and this is what I do for a living.” I LOVE DOING MAKEUP and soon you all will get to see me shopping, beating faces to perfection and showing you all how to create quick pulled together and glamorous looks.

My last three hours at work was spent doing an eyelash extension touch-up for and hour starting promptly at 2:30 finishing at 3:30. After cleaning my lash room I went to my station and started taking selfies…gotta love those selfies right, what a great way to past time. This is what I came up with.

IMG1116 You guys can obviously tell that I’m bored (out my mind). It dawned on me that I didn’t have on any lips. So, I went to my purse and whipped out one of the most poppington lip colors “Patent Leather Red” from the KIP Lip collection of Keep it Pretty and Look what it did.

Me, Jenifer Vanderhorst aka Ms. Keep it Pretty

My camera phone distorts color really bad, but I will put reputation on the line and vouch that these lip colors are Highly pigmented. Needless to say the last two hours of work was super fun. I played in makeup and took pictures of it all :-)

I personally love the color contrast used between her hair and skin. The makeup is kept soft not to take attention away from her over all look, and I love the deep bronze smoky eye that plays off those fire red tresses. Well done by true professionals.

On how her mother helped shape her into the women she has become
My mother helped me identify myself the way the world would identify me. Bloodlines didn’t matter as much as how I would be perceived” — as beautiful but also as a black woman in a world in which the images of beautiful, successful black women were notably absent.

On being mixed race
Being biracial is sort of like being in a secret society. Most people I know of that mix have a real ability to be in a room with anyone, black or white.

On her beauty and self-esteem
Just because they see my face doesn’t mean they see me. A person’s self-esteem has nothing to do with how she looks. If it’s true that I’m beautiful, I’m proof of that. Self-esteem comes from who you have in your life. How you were raised. What you struggled with as a child.

On why she is grounded
I come from humble beginnings. I always felt like the underdog. Behind the eight ball. I learned not to be too high on the hog. Even that night I won the Oscar, I had a fundamental knowing, it was just a moment in time. Driving home that night, back to my house, I felt like Cinderella. I said, ‘When this night is over, I’m going back to who I was.’ And I did.

On being hounded by paparazzi day in day out
They’re outside my house every morning, I get it about the celebrity stuff. It’s part of my job to recognize that there’s a certain part of my life the public wants to hear about. But it’s not okay that they’re doing terrible things to my daughter. One night, after they chased us, it took me two hours just to get her calmed down enough to get to sleep.

On why she hasn’t been able to find the right partner
God just wanted to mix up my life. Maybe he was thinking, ‘This girl can’t get everything! I’m going to give her a broken picker.

On why she so desperately wants to move out of America
I can’t grow my daughter in L.A. You take a little child who is just trying to learn about the world and have all these people with cameras chasing after her, calling things out to her about her mother. It’s starting to make her feel special and different. I want her to feel special and different, but not for the reason of being my child.

On what she would do if she didn’t have the press in her face for a day
I’d go to the market with my daughter. Go to Santa Monica Pier and take her on a ride. Nothing special. Just live some normal life for once

Samantha Black

One of the leading cosmetics brand in the industry, for people of color collaborated with emerging designer Samantha Black to present the Spring/Summer 2013 runway collection. Black Opal is one of the first line of cosmetics I used as an emerging artist, reason being is because they have shades of foundation that EVERYONE can wear, not to mention the color cosmetice, such as eye shadows, are pigmented and vibrant with color.

Frank Guyton

Celebrity make-up artist and Black Opal Artistic Director Frank Guyton was the key make-up artist creating fresh chic retro looks for the fashion collection.

 Designer Samantha Black states her collection inspiration-”My inspiration for this collection started off with simple SOHO brunch. Back in the day women used to dressed up.They were classy and feminine. Today, brunch is more of a scene, funky, sassy and very fashionable.  My collection is a mixture of both, colliding vintage fashion with a modern twist; while remaining very feminine, sassy and innovative.”
