Posted in Events, What's New at 9:00 am by Lily Yanez, Makeup Artist

This morning Houston Makeup did airbrush make up for Kat Kearns of Renew Body Contouring Spa and client Enid Sanchez, who appeared on Fox 26′s Morning News Extra as part of a new promotion at the spa. The HD-TV quality makeup used by Lily is not water based, unlike what other airbrush makeup artists use. The high quality, luxury airbrush makeup unique to our company is not only perfect for TV but for your special occasion as well – ideal for weddings, parties, photo shoots…this make up will last all day and several more days after!

Happy New Year!

We at Houston Makeup are kick starting another successful year with a brand new blog catered to all beauty news, tips, and events happening with us! What a great way to showcase our talents and favorite clients, as well as some of our favorite products and tips!

Houston Women Junior League Fashion Show

Houston Makeup also provided photography and airbrush makeup services to the Houston Junior League’s Fashion & Runway show this last fall. Kharisma Hair Studio provided hair stylists services headed by Suleiman Telfah for the League’s longstanding tradition of Opening Style Shows!

The season’s show launched timeless, classic and contemporary collections from Elizabeth Anthony / Esther Wolf.


This year promises to be no different as Houston Makeup kicks off 2011 with a spot on MTV’s Made! The show will air January 24 and Lily and the team “Made” Sharon Lee. Check your local listings, but be sure to tune in and watch Lily in action!

Around town, Nordstrom is hosting a Winterize Your Skin event on January 21 & 22. Clients can learn about the latest breakthroughs & innovations in skincare from the pro’s and can even revamp their skincare routine! Nordstrom fans were raving about Laura Mercier’s Face Scrub to keep the skin in tip top condition during the winter months, and Clinque’s Moisture Surge also got rave reviews. Click here to RSVP to the event http://shop.nordstrom.com/c/beauty-get-gorgeous-winter-skin?origin=topnav#nfa as appointments are required.

Looking ahead into spring/summer trends, Harpers Bazaar says the smokey eye isn’t going anywhere, but will be “…equally sexy, but a bit crisper. Try the combination of big lashes and liquid liner for a modern twist. Here, January Jones wears a hint of shimmery shadow in the inner corners of her eyes for extra brightness.”

The magazine also claims that bright lips will be a hot trend early this year…”From Fendi to Gucci to Jil Sander, we saw bright lips everywhere in every shade. Oranges, reds and pinks were all popular, but this pretty fuchsia on Natalie Portman gets our vote for wearability.”

Hair trends were simple and clean, with the vamped up ponytail making a come back…”We saw countless ponytails on the spring 2011 runways — from BCBG to Tory Burch. The key to making this style more night-out than night-in is volume — lots of it. Tease, scrunch, and curl before pulling back your hair.”
