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.

Sidory’s Tips for Black and White Photography

Blog Post #1“Doing makeup that translates beautifully in black and white photography can be tricky. Remember to apply some of these quick tips before application to achieve the best results.

Highlight: it’s important to show dimension when doing a black and white makeup application. Try applying highlighters over the high planes of the face to create highlights.

Detail: it’s very important that your work is clean and blended. Blending in your contouring, eyeshadows and make sure your eyeliner is smooth and precise. Coat those lashes with an even amount of mascara. Texture shows quite easily in black and white.

Contour: contouring is meant for sculpting face shapes and features. Contouring creates depth and recedes areas you want to minimize. It helps show contrast too which is especially important in black and white photos.”

PRO Tip: Dual Purpose Duos

Dual Purpose DuosOur Highlight Duos are a unique product staple for any artist’s kit because they have more than one function for the face. Available in four combinations, each duo has a matte shade for color correcting and a shimmery shade for added glow. The matte shades are intensely pigmented and can be used to color correct and brighten the skin. For example, Well-Lit contains a pink shade perfect for balancing out blue under eye circles while the yellow shade in Ray of Light is perfect for neutralizing redness for fairer skin.

In addition to the color-correcting benefits, each duo can double as a cheek color, our favorite is a duo fibre brush like the F15. Simply swirl both sides together. When both sides of Goddess Glow are combined, they create a natural flush on the cheeks. We also like to use the Highlight Duos as eye shadows, each providing a natural look. Bring to Light is the most universal of the duos and creates a soft look, perfect for brides or clients who want a more natural look.
