Sultry eyes were the choice of the stars on the red carpet for the 2014 Oscars. Here are three of our favorite eye makeup looks and tips on how you can recreate them.
Angelina Jolie. No stranger to the awards circuit, we are always curious to see what trend-setting looks Angelina will reveal at each show. Her Academy Awards' makeup this year was definitely sensuous, focusing on a smokey metallic eye. Get the look with our Celebre Precious Gem Powder in Bronzite and Tigers Eye, two of the six new earthy tones. Their jewel like glow will have you shining like a star.
Anna Kendrick. Taking a cue from her black dress, Anna opted for a more subtle smokey eye that centered on a slightly smudged top lined lid. "It may look complicated, but creating a smokey eye is actually quite simple," says Mehron makeup artist Pamela Faller. "The secret is all in the blending. Just remember to blend and you will achieve that gorgeous shadowy effect." We make beautiful blending simple with our velvety smooth, long-lasting Black E.Y.E. Liner Pencil.
Sandra Bullock. Voluminous lashes and a hint of blue make Sandra's smokey stand out from the rest. Line your lower lashes with True Blue E.Y.E. Liner Pencil then apply E.Y.E Lashes in the volume of your choice - from natural to extreme. Each set of lashes is hand-made by highly skilled artisans for premium quality.

Celebre Precious Gem Powders, Paradise Glitter, and B.L.A.M.E. (Black Light Activated Makeup Essential) taking center stage. Big and colorful was also popular. There will definitely be some serious makeup and body artistry going on. We sold out of our Celebre Pro HD Makeup 20 Color Palettes and Paradise Makeup AQ 30 Color Palettes.
If you purchased these, or any other, products be sure to share your creations with us on Twitter and Facebook!
Mehron model and makeup artist Sindy Perez showed a packed room just how to get the perfect camera complexion in our HD Makeup 101 seminar. She shared the key to a flawless finish even under the harshest lighting conditions with our Celebre Pro HD product line of cream and pressed powder foundation, Loose Mineral Finishing Powder and more.
Body artistry has made its way into beauty, fashion, music, theatre and advertising. It is the perfect addition to any MUAs tool kit. Working one-on-one with master body artist Jinny in her Work The Body hands-on class, attendees learned how to integrate texture, color and creativity through body art. Using our Paradise AQ line of professional body makeup - which includes new metallic colors and glitter - attendees spent a day in painting paradise. Crowds were also wowed by Jinny's live booth demos - and even joined in the painting there as well!
Makeup, after all, is not just about the glitter and glam - there is a whole other world of special effects. And we brought in renowned artist Levi Viera to introduce our new All Pro Special FX Makeup Kit. Visitors watched him create realistic cuts and bruises right before their eyes. Our all-inclusive kit was also featured in Brian Kinney's Cause & FX workshop.
Another great job by the Mehron Trade Show Team!

Isn't it astounding how characters can so realistically age in two hour movie? Or how an actor can be completely transformed into a character you don't even recognize? And what about those wounds that look just like the real thing? Special effects makeup artistry plays an integral part in the storytelling process - it draws us in and feeds our imagination. As a supplier of special effects makeup to theatre, movies and television, we would like to congratulate Adruitha Lee and Robin Mathews for their recent Oscar win for makeup and hairstyling for Dallas Buyers Club. Their transformation of Jared Leto was amazing! Kudos to all of the other nominees as well. We recognize your talented contributions and acknowledge how different and lacking each film would be without them.
CBS This Morning recently did a segment on the art of Hollywood special effects makeup, which also acknowledged the important role of special effects in movies and television. The feature focused on Academy Award Winner Matthew Mungle, who is one of the special effects makeup masters in the movie industry. His resume reads like a list of pop culture. He won the Oscar for Bram Stoker's Dracula and was nominated for Schindler's List, Ghosts of Mississippi, and Albert Nobbs. Other notable film work includes The Butler, Edward Scissorhands, and Primal Fear. His career also spans into television, with Emmys for X-Files, Citizen Cohn, Six Feet Under, Door-To-Door, Tracy Ullman's State of the Union, and John Adams.

Mehron joined forces with Mehron UK for London Fashion Week. We are so excited to introduce the Fashion Week experience to the Mehron UK brand. What a whirlwind of fun! Three fabulous shows with three amazing looks - each one as stunning as the next. Here's the inside scoop on the designers, the MUAs, and the makeup.
Bora Aksu. Known for his "romantic with a dark twist" signature style, Bora Aksu's latest collection was inspired by letters his mother wrote as a child while at boarding school. The designs and show told a seamless story. The first pieces were romantic and sentimental incorporating sugar shades, full skirts and puff sleeves. Over time, the designs became much more grown up, which gave the sense of breaking free and becoming an adult. To capture this youthful concept, head makeup artist Yin Lee kept the makeup natural and barely there. The base of the look was the 12 Color Celebre Pro HD Palette, which provided a flawless, fresh, radiant complexion. A soft eye was created using Cocoa E.Y.E Powder. For a natural flush, Yin applied Mocha CHEEK Powder. She completed the look with Natural L.I.P Cream. Stunningly simple!
Haizhen Wang. Skipping the traditional runway, Haizhen Wang showcased his classical, yet bold designs in an intimate setting. Masculine femininity never looked so good! His collection perfectly pulled off the monochrome palette of Black, Grey and White. Wang's signature tailored look and architectural influences were clearly seen in the structured wool coats, chunky boots, messy fishtail plats, loose shirts and fitted leather trousers. Yin Lee complemented the designs with a natural look. Just as with Bora Aksu, Yin relied on the 12 Color Celebre Pro HD Palette for a flawless, contoured complexion. A slight pop of color was added with CHEEK Cream in Berry Blush, Geranium and Pink Coral. She added some "drama" with a cool-tone smokey eye achieved with Toffee E.Y.E Powder, along with Natural and Petal Pink L.I.P Cream. The eyes were finished with Pro-Pencil Slim in White. A sleek, nude lip was created using Glosstone PRO in Crystal Clear, Pink Crush and Coral Reef.
Gyunel. Her talent and passion for painting cleverly feeds into Gyunel's fashion designs, making her famous for pieces with an artistic edge. Her current pieces, titled Russian Woodland, were inspired by snowdrops - and used as a canvas for oil paintings transformed into digital prints. Gyunel's inspirational show was opened AND closed by SUPERMODEL COCO ROCHA! To capture the ethereal feel of the collection, AOFM's Louise Dartford kept the makeup simple. A flawless, fresh, youthful look was extremely popular on the runway this season. Louise kept it going with the 12 Color Celebre Pro HD Palette. The eyes had a slight shimmer created with Silver Metallic Powder and Glosstone PRO in Crystal Clear. Our Day L.I.P Color Cream Palette did double duty! It was used on the cheeks to achieve a natural blush, and Natural was used on the lips. Super gorgeous!
Yin Lee. A London-based makeup artist, Yin Lee works across the globe for international magazines (such as Vogue and Harpers Bazaar), fashion shows and advertising projects. Her clients include Alexander McQueen and Agent Provocateur.
AOFM. Graduates from the prestigious Academy of Freelance Makeup (AOFM) along with Louise Dartford played an integral part in each of the shows. Kudos to all of their extremely talented work on all of the models.

As an American company with Made in the USA makeup products, the Winter Olympics 2014 has brought out the country pride in us. It is so inspiring to see all of the men and women athletes pursue their dreams of greatness. In the stands and along the Olympic routes family, friends and fans cheer them on as they wear patriotic hats, gloves, scarves, jackets, sweatshirts - even sunglasses - adorned with America's colors and flags. We were excited to spot red, white and blue face painting during the preliminary round ice hockey game between Russia and Team USA and love the American flag painted lips! In true Mehron style, with the help of Alexys Fleming of MadeYewLook, we are taking our pride and support one step further with this gorgeous American Flag / Olympic Rings body painting. As always with Lex's video tutorials, we have included all of the products you need and the step-by-step directions beneath the video link for easy reference.
1. Moisturize the skin.
2. Using Paradise Makeup AQ in Blue Lagoon and a foundation brush, start to paint the top of the draped flag. Picture how a flag would look draped over the back and create a wave pattern and fill it in.
3. Underneath the Blue, follow that same wave pattern using Paradise Makeup AQ in Dark Red to make the stripes. The stripes do not need to exactly line up with the original pattern, but try to make them sink down in the middle near the arch of the back.
4. Go back and apply Paradise Makeup AQ in White in between the Red strips to create the white strips of the flag.
5. The create waviness and depth in the Blue section, shade/create folds with INtense Pro Pressed Powder Pigments in Hurricane Blue using an eye shadow brush. For more depth, blend out with the foundation brush.
6. Then highlight the Blue section with INtense Pro Pressed Powder Pigments in Morning Sky with an eye shadow brush to mimic where the sun or light would naturally hit it. Picture the flag having rolls in it. Highlight every outer part of the roll.
7. Do the same highlighting technique on the White stripes with INtense Pro Pressed Powder Pigments in Graphite.
8. Then highlight the Red stripes with INtense Pro Pressed Powder Pigments in Red Earth.
9. Use the White to create the stars with an angled brush. Wet the paint only slightly to create a softer look.
10. Now create the Olympic rings using a small eye shadow brush and Paradise Makeup AQ in Lagoon Blue, Yellow, Black, Light Green and Dark Red.

Valentines Day is almost here and we have a HOT look you will LOVE that focuses on an ombre lip! Alexys Fleming of Made You Look has created a beautiful face that is sure to capture the heart of your honey. And with these sexy, luscious, full lips, who knows where the night will lead . . . This ombre lip look uses a radial technique. The key is to work with two tones in the same family and feather them toward the center of the lips, with your natural lip color working as the center highlight. The result is gorgeous, plump lips that will drive 'em wild - in just 4 super-simple steps! Alexys also covers the rest of the look - sultry, lined eyes and soft, contoured cheeks - in the video. We've listed the how-to steps and all the products you will need below the video for easy reference.
How to Do an Ombre Lip
1. Line lips slightly outside of your natural lip line with Caberet L.I.P Liner Pencil to create the impression of larger lips.
2. Apply Caberet in small strokes to the outer corners of both upper and lower lips, then feather out with a brush toward the center of your lips. The key is to have your natural lip color showing as the highlight in the center to get that plump look.
3. Apply Raisin L.I.P Liner Pencil to the outer corners, but don't blend as far toward the center as you did with the Caberet.4. If you like the matte look, you can leave it at that. Or, apply Clear Glosstone Pro for an even plumper, more luscious look!
Eyes1. Color in brows with Brow / Liner Pencil in Taupe.
2. Prime the eyelids.
3. Highlight under the brows with Snow White E.Y.E Powder. Apply to the corner of eyes and lid.
4. Softly blend Wheat E.Y.E Powder into the crease.
5. Blend Cocoa E.Y.E Powder into the outer corners.
6. Line both water lines and top lid with Black E.Y.E Liner Pencil.
7. Apply Espresso E.Y.E Powder to the outer corner of your eye.
8. Finish with mascara
Face1. Contour with Celebre Pro HD Makeup in your matching shade under the cheek bones. Blend downward to create soft edges.
2. Apply Mocha CHEEK Powder.
3. Above the blush, blend out Ivory Celebre Pro HD Makeup.
