Royal Ontario Museum – Friday Night Live with ESTO Style: Northern Spirit

Modern Makeup did some fashion show makeup for models on Friday September 29th, 2017 at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) for their “Friday Night Live” Fashion Show.

This event celebrated both Canada’s 150th birthday as well as Estonia’s 100th birthday, and is also a part of the program for Canada’s national event, Culture Days, which is taking place from September 29th to October 1st, 2017.

Featuring: ESTO Style: Northern Spirit

All makeup provided by Jennifer Turner of Modern Makeup.

My instructions from organizers was to do three different looks. For look number one they asked for an extremely natural look; that no makeup, makeup look.

For each look change I had about 3 minutes with each girl, so the looks had to be something that I could easily transition.

For look # 2 the organizers requested a simple cat eye winged liner.

Look # 3 organizers wanted a smokey eye that really popped and to keep the lip fairly neutral. I decided to do a classic smokey with an intense shimmer glitter on the eyelid.

After applying the eye to the first model I was feeling the glitter love take over and I decided to gloss up their lips with some super sparkly lipgloss!

For this look change I also had about three minutes for each model.

Here are my favourite shots from the third and final look of the night:

I also did some grooming for the male models. For them the look was clean and natural.

I just made sure their skin looked perfect and natural.

Last year, team Modern Makeup had the pleasure of dolling up all 54 of Canada’s regional winners!

Every year I have been blown away by the maturity and kindness of these young girls.

The delegates are required to fund raise for a charity of their choosing.

The winner will have many responsibilities once she is crowned, many of which revolve around local community events and fund raising events.

Last year’s winner Sami Pierre was a well deserved winner!

Passionate, intelligent and motivated to make a difference, Sammi has made Canada proud.

Heres a look at Sami’s “Most Photogenic” Photo Shoot.

Her makeup here was done by Modern Makeup team member Alexandra and hairstyling done by myslef, Jennifer Turner of Modern Makeup.

When getting Sami ready for this shoot I remember instantly being impressed with Samantha’s positive attitude and articulate nature.

Tips on Perfecting Your Cat Eye

While a bold lip or a perfect contour can highlight your facial features, arguably nothing is quite as game-changing as eyeliner. Pencil, gel and liquid liners truly open up the windows to your soul, as the makeup experts from StyleCaster explain, “One little line can transform your makeup look in a big way, not to mention make you feel like a totally confident babe.”  And perhaps the most powerful among the multitude of eyeliner trends is none other than the cat eye.

Whether you are a cat person or not, these felines seem to be our source of inspiration for a lot of things, from yoga exercises that relieve stress and calm the mind  to cat-themed games that feature adorable kittens . And for us beauty addicts, these furry creatures have acted as motivation behind one of the most powerful makeup trends to have stood the test of time.

Cat Eyes

But the problem with this style of liner is the intricacy of the flick and the amount of skill required to create even eyes. Although they say that it’s okay if your eyebrows are more like sisters rather than twins, the same cannot be said for your eye makeup. Unfortunately, not all of us have been blessed with steady hands and the artistry that beauty vloggers execute, but thankfully, there are certain tricks of the trade that you can learn to make it seem like you have the natural ability to have perfect, even wings on each eye.

The first thing you should do before picking up your pen, pencil or brush, is understand your eye shape, since that will determine the appropriate thickness and the angle of the flick. Gurl previously posted an infographic that shows four eye categories and how the application differs for each . Once you have an idea of how thick the liner is and how dramatic you’d like your cat eye to be, you can follow any of the following beauty hacks to nail your winged liner.

1) Use a spoon as your stencil

Tape is often the go-to for those that are absolutely hopeless or don’t have patience for the perfect cat-eye, but the tape can be a bit painful to rip off. Swap the tape out for a spoon instead, using the handle to line the bottom of the wing and the curve of the spoon to finish the shape on top. Then just fill in your wings and line the rest of your lids.

2) Refine the lines with a makeup corrector

Sometimes it’s way easier to correct the mistakes rather than spending more time to even everything out, as you could make your liner much thicker than originally intended. So don’t fret if the lines are immaculate; make use of your makeup eraser, or cotton buds with petroleum jelly.

3) Connect the dots

Remember those colouring books that had you connect the dots to figure out the shapes? The same can be applied to your eyes, but make sure that the dots aren’t too big or uneven to keep the line consistent.

MISS TEENAGE CANADA 2016

Happy Friday loves!

I’m sure you all are aware that Modern Makeup was a proud sponsor of Miss Teenage Canada 2016, and I’m here to give you a bit of a behind the scenes of all the hard work and perfection that our artists displayed throughout the pageant.

Our team was up bright and early  on the first day to meet up at the Mississauga Holiday Inn Dixon Road on the top floor to do some set up and wait for our contestants to file through. Personally, I have never seen so many makeup palettes, hair extensions and so many bottles of hairspray in one place before. However, the room was filled with so much energy, talent and creativity that regardless of the fact that we had 54 models who needed to get their hair and makeup done before 4 o’clock, we managed to make it happen with only a short pizza break.

Below are some snippets of the days progress.

These girls ranged form ages 14 to 18 and came from all over their country with their own unique story in their own beautiful way, and competed for the Miss Teenage Canada title. It was mind blowing to see the confidence that was portrayed by each young lady and the way they attempted to build each other up during an intense time like this.

Pageant day took place at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre at the Exhibition. Artists were each allotted a room underneath the stage where they got their girls prepped for their big night. It was another whirlwind of cosmetic craziness, but a rewarding night indeed.

The winner of the 2016 Miss Teenage Canada Pageant was Samantha

It was a hectic few days but the team managed to pull it off with patience and grace. I know this event would have not been possible without the wonderful artists who were part of #teammodernmakeup and I would like to take a moment to recognize some of our incredible artists!

MAKE THOSE CURLS LAST

Happy Sunday beauties!

We all love throwing our hair into soft and bouncy curls to jazz up our summery look of the day. But let’s be real, the humidity gets the best of it, and by noon it looks deflated and kinky. I’ve done a bit of research over the last few days and put together a few tips and tricks to make those curls last, regardless of the weather.

skip conditioner

Our beloved moisture concealer can actually do more harm than good. Turns out it’s harder to curl slippery hair than it is condoner-less hair. So ladies, keep it out of the process.

mousse it up 

You’ll want to add some texture to your damp hair in order for the curls to get some grip. Work a palm full of volumizing mousse starting from the roots down to your tips to put some hold in your hair. According to Merakilane the Moroccan Oil Volumizing Mousse works wonders.

curl properly

We all know that heat can do more damage to your hair than anything so this is where I suggest you select a worthwhile heat protectant and use it religiously when curling your hair. Investing in a good quality curling iron is key to long lasting curls. Part your hair and ensure that each part cools before moving on to avoid getting flattened by above layers. Lastly, don’t forget to turn up the heat accordingly (higher-thick hair, lower-thin hair).

I threw in one of my personal favourite curling tutorials just in case you guys wanted some reference!

hair spray

This is a given. Once you’ve curled to satisfaction, throw some extra hold with a good hair spray and you’ll be set for your next summer event (not to mention- hairspray is basically hair perfume so curly scented hair? Yes please!). Any hairspray of your favour will do.

Happy Curling lovelies!
