New beauty shoot exclusively on FASHION GONE ROGUE!

October 2, 2014

I have a new beauty shoot running exclusively on http://www.fashiongnerogue.com These images were shot by Trever Hoehne, Modeled by Cailin Russo, Styled by Simona Sabo, Hair by Kristin Heitkotter and Makeup by Anthony Merante.

To get the many looks I created on Cailin I used cream eye shadows from MAC Cosmetics and a copper shade from Laura Mercier. I applied all over lid with my finger and blended into the crease with soft eye shadow brush. I then brushed the brows into place. For the nude lips, I used Dose Of Colors Lipstick in the PERFECT nude called POISE. For the darker looks, I applied Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof cream color in JET all over lid and blended into crease. I then took a black eye shadow to set the color and then placed a small amount of Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream to the ball of the eye for a glossy look.

New Years Eve Makeup Look

December 29, 2013

NewYearsMakeup

 

The Holiday parties are all over and now its time to get ready for the biggest night of the year, NEW YEARS EVE! For this look I was inspired by Audrey Hepburn in the movie Breakfast At Tiffany’s. To get this gorgeous timeless look, follow the steps below.

MAKEUP: I prepped and primed the skin using Dermalogica Active Moist Moisturizer. I like to use this particular moisturizer cause it is oil free and light weight and doesn’t compromise my makeup and helps it last all day and into the night. With a large flat foundation brush from MAKE UP FOR EVER (35N) I applied MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation in shade 117 starting from the center of the face and blending outward. I then buffed the foundation further with a wet makeup sponge. If you have a Beauty Blender or something like it, that would work great as well. I let the foundation sit on the skin and set on its own before applying any face powder and started on the eye makeup.

EYES: I applied MAC Cosmetics Paint Pot in Soft Ochre all over lid with a large fluffy eye shadow brush and let it set. For the winged eyeliner, I used Clinique Brush On Cream Liner using a fine eyeliner brush. I started with the outside corners of the eye and got my flicks even. I then lined close to the lash line starting from the inner corner of the eye and then connecting to my flicks. I applied two full coats of of L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black to the top lashes and then applied Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara in black to the bottom lashes. I filled in any sparse areas and elongated Rebecca’s brow using Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Brunette and then brushed into place with Anastasia Brow Gel in Granite. 

LIPS: For the lips, I wanted to have a bright statement lip. I used Urban Decay Supersaturated Lip Pencil in Crush. I lined the lips and filled them in with this highly pigmented glossy lipstick. For added staying power, blot the lips with a tissue and then reapply the lipstick.

CHEEKS: To finish off the look I set the foundation with a translucent face powder from MAKE UP FOR EVER. The powder I used is no longer made, but any translucent powder will do. I then dusted the apple of the cheeks and into the contours with TOM FORD Cheek Color in Frantic Pink.

Holiday Makeup Ideas by Anthony Merante Part 3

December 20, 2013

Anthony's holiday000120-RT

“ALL THAT GLITTERS” was the theme for this holiday party makeup & hair look! I was inspired by the glittery backdrop I created using two huge containers of silver glitter and some foam core board. I wanted the skin to be gorgeous and sparkle, I achieved this look by using MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation and some reflects glitter from MAC Cosmetics. I wanted to use one of my flea market finds and adorned the sculpted bun with a pink vintage brooch. To get this sculpted, sparkling look, follow the easy steps below.

MAKEUP: I prepped and primed the skin using Dermalogica Active Moist Moisturizer. I like to use this particular moisturizer cause it is oil free and light weight and doesn’t compromise my makeup and helps it last all day and into the night. With a large flat foundation brush from MAKE UP FOR EVER (35N) I applied MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation in shade 117 starting from the center of the face and blending outward. I then buffed the foundation further with a wet makeup sponge. If you have a Beauty Blender or something like it, that would work great as well. I let the foundation sit on the skin and set on its own before applying any face powder and started on the eye makeup.

EYES: To get these glittery eyes, I applied MAC Cosmetics Paint Pot in Soft Ochre all over lid with a large fluffy eye shadow brush and let it set. I then dabbed Too Faced Glitter Glue all over the lid with my finger to adhere the glitter. I applied MAC Cosmetics Glitter in Reflects Pearl all over the eye and to the brow bone with my finger to prevent minimal fall out. Since I didn’t use any eye liner for this look, I wanted to add some drama to the lash, so I added a full strip of Wispies lashes from Ardell and after the glue set, I applied two full coats of of L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black to the top lashes and then applied Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara in black to the bottom lashes. I filled in any sparse areas and elongated Rebecca’s brow using Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Brunette and then brushed into place with Anastasia Brow Gel in clear. If you have problems finding the glitter from MAC, you can also find very similar items from Urban Decay, MAKE UP FOR EVER or Sephora Brand. Reflects pearl from MAC might be a pro product.

LIPS: For the lips, I wanted to go for a fun and easy playful pink glossy lip and applied Anastasia Beverly Hills Hydraful Lipgloss in Sugar Pink for a sexy pout. The Hydraful Gloss from Anastasia is by far my favorite gloss, the silicone applicator is ideal for smoothing this gloss across the lips effortlessly.

CHEEKS: To finish off the look I set the foundation with a translucent face powder from MAKE UP FOR EVER. The powder I used is no longer made, but any translucent powder will do. I then dusted the apple of the cheeks and into the contours with NARS Cosmetics Blush in Orgasm. I then applied MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle to the cheek bones, chin and nose for a healthy radiant glow. To boost the sparkle factor, I applied the same glitter that I applied to the eye with a blush brush on the cheek bones and temples for added drama.

Holiday Makeup Ideas by Anthony Merante Part 2

December 11, 2013

holidaylook-1

With all the holiday parties this month, I thought I would try something a little different with the blog and post a few Holiday Makeup looks. I had a lot of fun creating the makeup looks and my festive glittery back drops. I did 3 holiday party makeups and one New Years inspired look. Check back soon as I will updating with more looks.

MAKEUP: Rebecca has amazing skin, I prepped and primed the skin using Dermalogica Active Moist Moisturizer. I like to use this particular moisturizer cause it is oil free and light weight and doesn’t compromise my makeup and helps it last all day and into the night. With a large flat foundation brush from MAKE UP FOR EVER (35N) I applied MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation in shade 117 starting from the center of the face and blending outward. I then buffed the foundation further with a wet makeup sponge. If you have a Beauty Blender or something like it, that would work great as well. I let the foundation sit on the skin and set on its own before applying any face powder and started on the eye makeup.

EYES: I wanted the eyes to have a little drama but have a light feel to them. I achieved this by applying MAKE UP FOR EVER Star powder in Iridescent Beige all over lid up to the brow bone. These loose eyes shadows are a bit messy, but if you apply using a damp fluffy eye shadow brush, you can minimize any fall out. I then applied two coats ofL’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black to the top lashes and then applied Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara in black to the bottom lashes. Rebecca has really great brows that are always groomed. I filled in any sparse areas and elongated the brow using Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Brunette and then brushed into place with Anastasia B row Gel in clear.

LIPS: The lips are where I played with a different texture than my normal gloss. I applied a deep reddish burgundy  lipstick from MAC Cosmetics called DIVA with a lip brush. I didn’t use any lip liner for the look since this lipstick has such a strong color pay off. I blotted the lips with a tissue and applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Star Powder in Iridescent Red to  the lips for a velvety finish.

CHEEKS: To finish off the look I set the foundation with a translucent face powder from MAKE UP FOR EVER. The powder I used is no longer made, but any translucent powder will do. I then dusted the apple of the cheeks very lightly with Kevyn Aucoin blush in Myracle and applied Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight Powder to the cheek bones, chin and nose for a healthy radiant glow.

HAIR: To get Andrew’s gorgeous hair look follow these easy steps. Blow dry hair, by first spraying roots with a volumizing spray. When hair is completely dry spray with a texture spray and dry for added texture and body. Backcomb the crown starting about 2 inches from the hairline. Loosely gather hair and secure with a few bobby pins. Finish this look with 2 or 3 of your favorite headbands and a spritzing of strong hold hairspray.
