More Rockin' Halloween Looks


In the past week, the Mehron team has been on the move! It was photo shoot after photo.  Here is a peek at some hot Halloween looks from one of the shoots currently featured on Nylon.com that will have you turning heads at parties - and we don't mean in the Exorcist kind of way!  We brought in MUA Michela Wariebi for this elaborate Halloween feature.  These looks are ALL about beauty, or as Nylon puts it "the epitome of a Halloween dream."

"It was so much fun to create these beauty Halloween looks using Mehron products," said Michela. It is exciting to see Mehron bring their theatrical expertise to everyday beauty.  They have taken their knowledge and expertise in creating professional makeup that excels under the harsh lights of the stage, film and runways and created products with that same wearability for everyday looks."

Ziggy Stardust.  David Bowie's alter ego never looked so good.  To recreate the look, cover the face with an even layer of Celebre Pro HD Makeup, brushing through the brows. Then use a darker shade to contour along the cheek bones, temples, and sides of the nose. Contour with CHEEK Powder in TropiCoral and Bold Red starting at the temples and blending down to the cheeks. Use Paradise Makeup AQ to create the dramatic lightning bolt, and add some to the hair to complete the look.

Half Sugar Skull. Create a smooth canvas with a light shade of Celebre Pro HD Makeup, then contour with a darker shade. Use E.Y.E Powder in Fawn to define one eye, blending through the crease, outside of the lid and under the lower lash line.  Line the upper and lower lashes with E.Y.E Liner Pencil in Black and add E.Y.E Lashes to this eye. Cover the other side of the face with White Paradise Makeup AQ. Create the skull eye with Paradise Makeup AQ in Black. Use E.Y.E Liner Pencil in Black to draw skulls on the cheek and blend. Fill in with iNtense Pro in Carbon.  Use the Carbon to shade the lips and the forehead. Draw mouth stitches and face designs with the Black and White Paradise Makeup AQ. Finish the look with a pop of L.I.P Cream in Big Apple on the human side.

Maleficent. Cover the face with a light shade of Celebre Pro HD Makeup, blending into the neck and collarbone. Create exaggerated contouring in the hollows of the cheeks, nose and forehead with E.Y.E Powder in Cocoa and Fawn. Emphasize further with Mocha CHEEK Powder and set with Celebre Pro HD Loose Mineral Finishing Powder. Use Carbon iNtense Pro in the corner of the eyes and crease. Buff out the crease. Fill in the lid with the browns. Line the upper and lower lashes with the Carbon. Finish with E.Y.E Lashes in Fuller.

Khaleesi from Game of Thrones. Apply Celebre Pro HD in a light foundation, then contour with a darker foundation. Use ProColorRing Neutralizer to hide any redness.  Apply E.Y.E Powder in Fawn to the crease and lower lash line. Apply Natural Wheat and White E.Y.E Powder to the lid. Follow with Precious Gem Powder in Diamond on the inner corner, brown bone and top of lid. Apply Paradise Makeup AQ in Dark Brown along upper and lower lash lines and blend out with Precious Gem Powder in Champagne. Comb Paradise Makeup AQ in Light Brown through the brows. Apply TropiCoral and Mohave CHEEK Powder for a flush of pink to the cheeks. Add Pink Coral and Tech Orange CHEEK Cream to the middle of the lips and blend out.

We want to especially thank Abracadabra NYC for lending us the gorgeous headpieces for Maleficent and the Half Sugar Skull and the beautiful wig for Khaleesi from Game of Thrones for this shoot.

Game Of Thrones Makeup Tutorial


If you can't get enough of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, we've got the perfect Halloween look for you!  Inspired by the gorgeous Daenerys Targaryen, we have put together this simple step-by-step makeup tutorial so you can recreate the effortless look of this mother of dragons known for her beauty and strength.

The Makeup




The Steps


1. Key to Daenerys' look is a flawless complexion, so start by applying Celebre Pro HD Makeup
 in a light shade all over the face.  Then contour with Celebre Pro HD Makeup in Medium Dark 3.  Use the green in the ProColorRing Neutralizer to correct any redness, and a bit of peach under the eyes to cover any dark circles for a porcelain face.


2. Daenerys' eye makeup is very natural.  Frame out the shape of the eye with E.Y.E Powder in Fawn, as well as smudge it along the lower lash line.  On the lid, apply a combination of E.Y.E Powder in Natural White and Wheat.  Brush Precious Gem Powder in Diamond on the brow bone, inner corner of the lid, and at the highest point of the lid.  Then smudge Paradise Makeup AQ in Dark Brown along the upper and lower lash line and blend out with Precious Gem Powder in Champagne. Next up are Daenerys' signature full brows.  Using a damp Mehron Face Smoothie Sponge, brush Paradise Makeup AQ in Light Brown through the brows to give the impression of fullness.

3. Add a flush of pink to the cheeks with CHEEK Powder in TropiCoral and Mohave, then highlight with Precious Gem Powder in Champagne.  Beautiful lips complete the look.  Apply CHEEK Cream in Pink Coral and Tech Orange to the middle of the lips and blend out.

The Backstage Scoop At Living Art America


Living Art America, the North American Bodypainting Championship, is a premier venue where artists combine vision, technique and various media to create master works on the human canvas.  This incredible event, which took place in Atlanta just a few short days ago, drew talented artists from around the world.  In addition to the international competition, there was also an abundance of bodypainting workshops for artists of all levels through the Living Art Academy.  As a sponsor of the competition, and the sole sponsor of the Academy, we wanted to share some behind the scenes info and photos.

The Competition

Talent, talent, and more talent is how to best describe the 5th annual Bodies As Works Of Art bodypainting competition.  The artful use of color and creativity abounded.  It was so inspiring to watch the artists at work backstage transforming canvases from blank to mesmerizing in such a small amount of time!




Skin Wars winner Natalie Fletcher
 The attention to detail and the use of costume pieces by the winners in the professional category - Hyun Yong and Kim Jungeun - was fantastic.





The Academy

So many classes to choose from! Artists from novice on up had a plethora of options - fast and easy techniques, trem l'oeil, henna, 3D effects, animals, steampunk, special effects, advertising, fashion, and more.  By sponsoring the Academy we hope to inspire more artists to embrace this popular art from and push beyond traditional limits to unending creativity.


Connecting

The face and bodypainting community is very special and united.  Mehron's marketing director Stephanie Koutikas was thrilled to catch up with industry leaders and old friends from around the globe.

The Mexican Day of the Dead and Halloween, the eve of all soul's day, fall adjacent to each other every year.  Both holidays focus on the reflection of remembering those who have departed from this world. The Sugar Skull is a renowned symbol of the Mexican holiday, while sugar itself and colorful costumes play a huge part in Halloween festivities.  So what more fitting way to celebrate the two holidays than with traditional Sugar Skull face paint.  While this design may seem complicated, we have broken it down into simple steps using minimal products.

The Makeup Show Dallas Debut


You know what they say about first impressions . . .  The Makeup Show Dallas' debut made a HUGE one on us and everyone who attended.  The show was simply AMAZING!  Fabulous crowds, fantastic seminars, and tons of industry buzz.  So much to talk about!

Insider Tips

We brought Orlando Santiago fresh off the runways of New York Fashion Week to give a class on recreating looks from some of the hottest STYLE360 shows - FTL Moda, Want My Look, and the Elle Runway Collection for Kohl's.  The room was packed to learn from this fashion forward MUA.  Orlando must have made quite an impression himself because we basically sold out of most of our Celebre Pro HD line and all the other products he used in the class!

Body Beautiful

You know you are in for some eye popping body transformations when Jinny is in the house.  She drew in a steady stream of spectators both days as she turned the beautiful blank canvas of Sindy Perez into show stopping art with our line of Paradise Makeup AQ.  With Halloween around the corner, you might want consider these creations for your costume.

A Debut Of Our Own

A debut show calls for a debut product.  Our brand new BARED Makeup Remover & Cleanser launched at the show.  We are thrilled by the rave reviews it received at the Blogger event hosted by James Vincent and the fact that it had been included in show haul photos on social media.

The Buzz
Followers and fans have been busy on social media letting us know how much they loved the show and the products they purchased.  One fan in particular made quite an impression on us.  During his live stream One On One Keynote, beauty expert and artist Wayne Goss twice mentioned Mehron Celebre Pro HD as being one of his ultimate favorite cream foundations. We are gushing!

We can't wait to get back to Texas for next year's show.

Meet The Winner Of Skin Wars


For the last two months viewers tuned into to the hot new show on GSN to watch some of the country's most talented artists battle it out.  Skin Wars, a skinteresting body painting competition, masterfully combined rivalry, a little drama and a whole lot of color!  As a show sponsor, we want to introduce you to the victorious skin warrior, Natalie Fletcher, who will be our special guest at IMATS.

Trained in classic realism and technical painting, Natalie's imagination, creativity and hard work convinced the judges that she was more than worthy of the win. Although at times a competition underdog, Natalie's talent continued to shine throughout the competition with some amazing artwork.


"I would never have imagined that I would make it all the way to the end of this competition," said Natalie.  

Natalie's passion for art goes back to the age of five when she realized that drawing was a lot more fun than math class!  When looking for a job after graduating from an intense four year painting program, she came across and ad for a body painter.  Despite her lack of experience, the job intrigued her so she decided to apply.  But there was a little problem - they wanted to see pictures of her work! She quickly created some body art, got the job, and was hooked.  "I loved the interactions and excitement of painting a human.  It was new and fresh and unlike painting on canvas," she says.  

While she might prefer painting a canvas with a pulse, she has not tossed aside her classical and technical skills.  She is known for her unbelievable body painted camouflage landscapes, which have been featured in such media as the San Francisco Times.



Kandee Johnson of Skin Wars: The Naked Truth spoke with Natalie after the win -


We are so excited to have this new Mehron Girl as part of our family!
