Product Focus: Beacon of Light Shimmer Cream

PRO_june_productphotos_blogClients are always chasing that sun-kissed, I-woke-up-like-this highlight. The Sigma Beauty Shimmer Creams are an emollient product that can be used alone or under traditional highlight powders for a serious boost. Beacon of Light is a stark white shade that doesn’t have traditional glitter or shimmer particles but still provides a glossy, subtle sheen to the skin without chunky glitter.

Sigma PRO Ambassador Sidory likes to use it over the top of eye shadows and lip colors to create a custom texture while building up to the perfect amount pf highlight.

To get the most out of this product, the Sigma PRO Team loves to scoop some of the Shimmer Cream out of the container and let it melt a bit on the back of the hand. This creates a creamy, easy-to-blend product that melts into the skin.

NYFW Closer Look: Raul Penaranda

2-19_NYFWRecap_blogNow that the glitz and glam of NYFW is over, we spoke with Sigma PRO Josephine Fusco who used her artistry skills to key the Raul Penaranda show for his fall 2016 line at New York Fashion Week.

Sigma PRO: What was the brainstorming process like with Raul?
Josephine Fusco: The overarching theme of the collection was ‘Emerge’, the coming of new, and showing the world who he is as a designer. Raul sent swatches of the fabric, key tones from the collection, and sketches of the designs

SP: This look is wearable, why was that important?
JF: We wanted a minimal look that was still wearable for the modern woman. It is a day-to-night look that any woman can wear. I realize that it is a lot of makeup for some and a little makeup for others but can be taken from the office to happy hour. It’s my version of a glamorous 10-minute face.

SP: What were the key elements to the look?
JF: The berry-toned wine stain will be the new dark lip for fall so we incorporated that as well. We kept the lids completely bare and just added the New York City lash from Smoke and Mirrors Beauty. We used Sigma brushes to make sure the skin was flawless, for foundation we used the 3DHD Kabuki, the P84 + P86 for concealer, highlighted the high points of the face with the E35, and lightly dusted blush onto the cheeks with the F10 and blending with the F25.

Alternative Use: F23 Soft Angled Contour

F23 Alternate UsesBrushes that can be used for more than one purpose save major space in kits, and they save valuable time because you don’t have to bother looking for that one brush you swore you packed in your brush roll. One favorite of our PRO artists is the F23 Soft Angled Contour brush. Sigma PRO Samantha Klein explains why it is a kit staple:

The bristles are super soft, which is always a plus when applying to the skin. The angled shape makes it easy to apply and blend bronzer or a contour powder to the cheekbones, temples of the forehead, under the chin and down the neck. This aids in creating a sculpted illusion to accentuate the bone structure. Specifically, this brush is an essential tool I carry in my kit, and for personal use as well. In additional to using it on the face, I also use it for body makeup as well. It’s great for contouring the arms, decollate, and legs!

The F23 just came back in stock, add it to your kit before it sells out again >>

Turn Heads

NYE Turn HeadsYour clients aren’t the only ones who want to look good on a night out; you need to make sure that your cheeks give new meaning to ‘highlight on fleek’ too. You’ve got to create looks that stand out from the crowd, looks capable of enduring dancing, socializing, and champagne. Produce an alluring look that sparkles after the midnight hour has come and gone. You know you can always trust our kit staples to create iconic looks.

Nightlife Palette: Each row of this palette was designed to create a specific look, the top row features golden neutrals, bright pops of plum in the middle row, and a glittery silver and smoky shades in the bottom row. Of course we mix and match them as well for entirely unique looks.
F56 – Accentuate Highlight™: With its curved Sigma Tech® brush head, the F56 cradles the top of the cheekbone for an effortless highlight. We like to use it with cream products but it works well with liquid and powder highlighting products.
Power Stick: A fully pigmented lipstick in six colors ranging from natural shades to an heirloom red and bright magenta. Bonus: the magnetic tube keeps the cap closed to avoid kit mishaps.
Hot Spot Blush: Take a break from pinks and give your client’s cheeks a sheer wash of peach. Build up the color on deeper skin tones for a natural glow.
F37 – Spotlight Duster™: The tapered, fluffy Sigma Tech® fibers provide a dusting of shimmery highlight to the skin. We also like to use this brush to precisely mattify the skin, apply blush to the cheeks, and sweep away fall out under the eyes.
Limelight Bronzer: Worn alone or paired with Hot Spot Blush, this matte, medium-toned bronzer gives a sun-kissed glow to any beauty look.
In Fine Feather Lip Liner: Use this lip liner for a base for a deep lip color or alone for an earthy pink shade. The smooth formula doesn’t tug on lips and will stay in place all night.
Brow Powder: Our favorite multi-tasking product, in addition to defining brows, use the darker side to deepen the crease and the lighter shade as a transition between crease and highlight colors.

Make sure you + your client always stand out >>
