Some Wicked Winter Makeup

Who said winter colors are blah? The cool hues of winter are made stunningly beautiful by these talented MUAs.

We are loving the glittery, smokey eye and cold lips of this ice princess inspired look from Mallory Jay Makeup.  Recreate it with iNtense Pro Pressed Powder Pigments in Night Sky, Tornado and Earth; Paradise Glitter in Silver, and Mixing Liquid.

Talk about some cool lips! Alexandra Hanson started with Fantasy FX in Silver as a base, then patted on some sparkles (try Paradise Glitter), and finished up with AdGem and the included crystals.

The ice queen never looked so good.  Look at this gorgeous eye from Jessica Scoles aka Wallflower Artistry.  Create it with Metallic Powder in Silver, Paradise Makeup AQ in White, Paradise Glitter in White, and AdGem with crystals.

Silver & Gold Holiday Looks



"Silver and gold. Silver and gold. Everyone wishes for silver and gold . . ." From the snowman's lips in Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer to our ears!  Nothing makes for more festive makeup during the holiday season.  The above look created by Magdelena Madzioha stunningly combines the two colors for one gorgeous eye.  Recreate the look with Metallic Powder in Silver and Gold and a bit of Mixing Liquid.  Then use AdGem to attach the gold embellishments or the included crystals for some added shimmer.

For something that is a bit more subtle, but still festive, follow Lisa Her's lead and sweep Gold Metallic Powder over the entire lid.



Or try Silver Metallic Powder as used by Uva Spa & Wine Boutique.


You can also turn up the color as Magdelena did for another look by combining Metallic Powder with the Mixing Liquid.



Don't just think festive eyes.  We love how #_divamaker applied Gold Metallic Powder to the lips.

What's Marty Mehron Up To?

Have you been following our resident elf on a shelf Marty Mehron?  The little mischief maker has been up to some shenanigans this month. Like a kid in a candy store, it seems he can't get enough of Mehron - from products to packaging to press - and is getting into trouble along the way.  Being introduced for the first time to a whole new world of color, texture and more, Marty just has to look at and touch everything!

From his first day here he has been playing games.

He has tried to sneak into orders ready to be shipped.

Finding the perfect seat, he kicked back and relaxed in lip color heaven.

Trying out our black light activated makeup, he started his very own rave!

Marty stopped the shenanigans over the weekend and pitched in to log orders on a Saturday. Awe, what a good elf.

But his good behavior didn't last long.  The next day he held our Metallic Powder and Mixing Liquid hostage.

Once he got the ransom he wanted, he spent it to hang out in Paradise.

Sneaking around the office he came across the Santa Clause Makeup Kit. He thought, "No wonder so many people look like Daddy!"



For story time he delved into some beautiful picture books.

100 Years Of Beauty In 1 Minute



Got a minute? That's all it takes to get a snap shot of how beauty has changed over the last hundred years.  Cut Video created an enlightening time lapse video that takes you from the beauty looks of a vintage 1910 Edwardian lady to the modern 2010 millennial.  As a company that began back in 1927, this is a fabulous trip down memory lane.  It is also an interesting study on how some looks never fade away, but rather just . . . morph.



The natural beauty of 1910 is still a popular everyday, go-to look today.  

Celebre Pro HD Contour & Highlight Palette, Cocoa E.Y.E Powder,
Mocha CHEEK Powder, and Natural L.I.P Cream

The 1920's was all about the the lips.  While the shape may have changed, the focus and color is on trend.

Double duty CHEEK Cream in Tech Orange
  The sultry, dramatic eyes of the 50's - think Elizabeth Taylor - are as hot as ever.

E.Y.E Powder Palette, Precious Gem Powder in Topaz
Like the colorful shadows of the 60's, our iNtense Pro makes a bold statement today.

iNtense Pro Pressed Powder Pigments
 That pastels of the 80's are embraced with a modern twist.

iNtense Pro Pressed Powder Pigments in Purple Heat
and Paradise Glitter in Pastel Lavender

What's your favorite makeup re-incarnation?

Couture Makeup You'll Want To Copy

Michael Costello, of Project Runway fame, is no stranger to couture.  His gowns have graced the red carpets of the Grammy's to the Oscars on such celebrities as Beyonce and the Kardashians. His collaboration with sister Stephanie for their MT Costello line is also drawing rave reviews.  They are the dynamic duo behind Ariana Grande's sexy see through dress at last week's American Music Awards and Entertainment Tonight's Rocsi Diaz's drop gorgeous gown for the Latin Grammy's last month. Quite a family of hot designers! We had the privilege of keying the makeup for Michael's collection at the Want My Look show at New York Fashion Week this past September.  Now we are excited to share that our makeup is gracing the premier of the gorgeous new MT Costello Illuminati collection.

Makeup artist Paloma Romo, as captured in these photos by Jackie Gallardo, created super sexy looks to complement the sensual pieces. What is even more fabulous is that they can easily transcend from couture to everyday.

Thank You


We would like to thank all of our partners and customers for their continued love, passion and inspiration.  You are the silent spirit behind all that we do.

The Love

Your love for the Mehron brand is so appreciated.  From buying our products to sharing your iNtense feelings about them with your friends, clients and even strangers, you have our gratitude.  We are honored each time we are mentioned in the media, on social media, and when an amazing brand wishes to partner with us - such as our recent partnerships for the Cotton 24-Hour Runway Show, Nylon Magazine Halloween shoot, Skin Wars, Living Art America, and the New York Fashion Week Shows with Style 360, just to name a few.


The Passion

Your passion for Mehron is not unnoticed. We are humbled each time an incredibly talented MUA recommends our products or a customer fervently shares their feelings about any of our makeup lines.  We get that warm, fuzzy feeling as we troll Instagram, Facebook and Twitter reading your comments and posts and watching your videos.

Your talents inspire us.  They are often the launching pad for new products and looks - even contests, such as our 31 Days of Mehron Halloween Instagram contest, which was inspired by the amazing Amanda Chapman, and Mehron Makeup Monday.  We LOVE seeing all of your looks and hope they inspire others as much as they inspire us.

So, thank you. We wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Camouflage Body Paint Goes Pop


Mehron Girl Carolyn Roper was called upon for her amazing camouflage body painting skills in Rae Morris' music video for her new song Closer.  The lyrics for the song, which broke onto the UK charts a week after its release, play brilliantly with the video's camouflaged dancers.  "You move away from me, but I feel you closer . . . I feel closer to you . . . "   As Rae sings these lyrics, the dancers pop out from the background revealing just how close they really are.  The impact is incredible and so integral to bringing the lyrics to life.



Painting the dancers was not a small feat.  "As the video required numerous models to be camouflaged, I booked several members of my team to assist with the painting on the day of the shoot," said Carolyn. "The models wore white morph suits, which we painted with Mehron's Paradise Makeup AQ.  This was sent directly to the production company from Treasure House of Makeup (Mehron UK) as the timings were pretty tight."



The day of the shoot everyone got to work early - starting at 7 AM.  Working around the necessary lighting adjustments, the artists kept on painting. "I assigned my team to the various models/dancers.  As well as working alongside them, I started on the tricky scene with the model on the garden bench. Matching up the model with the open wood slats of the bench with the grass and wall in the background wasn't easy. I'm a real perfectionist, but we did manage to achieve the realistic camouflage effect that I wanted," said Carolyn.  By 9 PM it was a wrap.  And we think those "wrapped" models are nothing short of fabulous!  "It was great to be part of such a beautiful video," said Carolyn.  Sheer camouflage body painting artistry.

New Mehron Products And Seminars Rocked The Makeup Show Orlando


What do you get when you mix product launches, new seminars, and some renown makeup artists? One HOT tradeshow!   And that definitely sums up The Makeup Show Orlando last weekend.


Product Launches

We unveiled two eagerly anticipated skin prep products - one that enhances application, intensity and staying power, and another that easily removes all traces of makeup.  Attendees got to see PRIMED Eye Primer in action for the first time.  This is the missing link to our vibrant pigment products. An antioxidant and vitamin rich eye-lid primer, PRIMED puts an end to creases and fading and makes loose pigments such as Precious Gems stick to lids like metal on a magnet!  To say it was well received is an understatement - it flew off the shelves of the showroom floor.  PRIMED was the buzz of the show, selling out on the first day.


Makeup lovers also couldn't get enough of BARED Makeup Remover and Cleanser.  Its gentle and nourishing formula is the ideal choice for removing highly pigmented makeup such as iNtense Pro. Keep makeup on when you want it and take if off without giving it another thought!


In The Know With The Pros

The pros know how to achieve a flawless complexion - and they weren't afraid to let their students in on the secret.  Mehron's Celebre Pro HD products took the stage during classes from some of the industry's top artists - Danessa Myricks, James Vincent, Bethany Townes and Orlando Santiago.  The Celebre love moved from the classroom to the Mehron booth, where students flocked to get some Celebre for their own tool kits.



Tips and Tricks

We shared some insights ourselves at the Mehron sponsored FEAR NOT - Intense Pigments for the Modern Makeup Look seminar taught by celebrity makeup artist Megan Hill-Luman.  This colorful class left attendees wanting to get their hands on some highly pigmented makeup!  If PRIMED was the buzz, iNtense Pro was the show stopper!
