You Have Dionne Phillips to Thank for Your Eyelash Extensions

by

Let’s just start by establishing that Dionne Phillips would be the ultimate leader of a girl gang. She comes across as one of those people who just instinctually gets it. Her personality and perseverance are a force, yet she remains grateful and as humble as they come. Dionne is a visionary who created the first ever lash extensions over twenty years ago; everyone else is just now catching on. She started from the bottom, now she’s here and you better believe she readyyy *Tiffany Haddish voice*. Dionne started her business in her kitchen and grinded until she landed celebrity clients like Naomi Campbell and Mary J. Blige, but is still continuing to expand her business even after all of her success. She’s truly an artist who will make you look at lash extensions in a different light while simultaneously making you laugh your ass off.

 

Cliché: So, lash extensions are a huge trend right now, but you began gracing faces with your extensions over twenty years ago. How did you come about the idea?
Dionne Phillips: The idea actually came from me trying to be cute! I was a model in New York City and, at the time, polaroids were what brands used to document us models at auditions. To me the polaroids always looked bad and I wanted to find a way to make mine stand out and look really good. So, I started cutting up strip lashes and applying them myself and when I applied them they’d stay on for several weeks. So, I started joking with my friends that I’d go around to all of the auditions and ask the models if they wanted their eyelashes done. One thing led to another and I had two girls in my kitchen and I was giving them lash extensions. Then two grew to eight, then to ten and before I knew it there was a six-month long waiting list of people wanting lashes from me. I had Brandy, Serena Williams, and when Paris Hilton talked about me on the red carpet once, my business really blew up.

Since no one had attempted the service before, what was the process of perfecting your technique like? Was there a lot of trial and error involved or was development smooth?
Oh yeah, it was definitely trial and error. I was constantly experimenting with different application methods, how to make the extensions stay on and not fall off over dinner, you know. I also had to deal with other people taking my technique and copying it. There are a lot of different ways to apply eyelashes, but I’ve now perfected my own technique, which I’ve learned to keep private in order to keep my intellectual property my own.

On top of being the originator of lash extensions you also started your business, D’Lashes, from the ground up. What was that journey like?
Well it all started from working on models in my kitchen to having everyone in Hollywood as a client. I would talk to everyone about my lashes at parties and covered a lot of ground that way. Word of mouth had a huge impact on my business. So now I have a private studio in Beverly Hills, a staff of marketers, and lash assistants to cover my appointments for when I’m out of town on business. I have clients all over the country so I travel a lot to service them.

Do you have any tips for readers wanting to start businesses of their own?
If you’re passionate about something and love to do it so much that you’d do it for free, just take the leap and start. Make phone calls, network, and do your research. There’s so much information at our fingertips right now. Utilize Google, or the University of Google as I like to call it, and of course YouTube. Just put in the work, test and test until your models are successful, and go for it.

Was there a moment that you felt that you had truly “made it” in the industry?
My aha moment is when people look at themselves after I’m done and they really love how they look and the smile that my work brings to their faces. That comes from cancer survivors who didn’t have eyelashes before me and burn victims who for them a set of eyelashes really changes their lives. Those are the moments when I feel like I’ve truly made it. Having all of my celebrity clients is great, but when I can truly make someone happy and impact their life in a big way, that’s everything.

What is one of your favorite memories with a client?
I actually have a funny story about twerking. My client Victoria Beckham and I were discussing its origins, like where did twerking even come from? The conversation was especially funny because of her English accent. She was throwing out phrases like “twerking in my knickers” and it was just such a good laugh. I laugh about a lot of random things with my clients. I call my sessions: “Lash Enlightenment Sessions.” I become the friend they never had and we just have a blast.

Since lash extensions are everywhere now, what makes your services unique to other boutiques?
I’m constantly researching and staying on top of all the hottest trends. Being a visionary, I can always deliver the look that my clients desire. I stand out because I don’t subscribe to the “one look fits all” philosophy, which a lot of studios and lash places do just to rake in the money. I deal with actresses that are on movie sets and require a specific type of lash look for the role that they’re playing. So, I do my research and come up with the perfect look for them. Currently on Instagram there’s a lot of lash mapping going on, which is great, but lash extensions shouldn’t be one size fits all. The lash technician really needs to take into consideration their client’s eye type, their hair texture, and eye shape. Every eye is different, so you really need to take those details into consideration when creating a set of lashes.

What tips do you have to maintain extensions without damaging your real lashes?
Please do not tug, pull or rub on your eyelashes in that order and be sure to properly wash your eyes. Some people think because they have extensions that they can’t fully wash their face. My tip is using baby shampoo and a great, soft eyeshadow brush to really get into the crevices of your eyelashes. It’s almost like giving your lashes a shampoo. Make sure to get all the way to the baseline of your eyelashes to ensure that they’re truly clean.

You have now branched out into makeup. Do you have any other plans on expanding your business?
Oh yes, I have a lot of plans. I’m expanding in ways that others aren’t. I’m currently testing out models until they prove themselves to be successful. The market doesn’t lie, so I just keep testing and improving until I, and consumers, are happy.

Lastly, what’s your beauty philosophy?
My beauty philosophy is to be who you are and walk boldly in it. I say that because I just changed my hair for the first time ever. I’ve always had the same flowy, kind of Farrah Fawcett long hair, but my husband and I are going away to celebrate our ten-year anniversary and I wanted something different. So, I went blonde! I’m actually so in love with it that it might end up being my new look. Whatever I decide, I’m walking boldly in it.

Neon is the Shade of the Summer

by

The concept of neon-anything may seem kitschy to some, but highlight is about to become hi-brow. There have been multiple hints across social media alluding to this upcoming trend, from the Kardashians’ vacation photos featuring neon nails and bikinis to the recent #AllureTrendWatch literally telling us to look out for the vibrant shade. Neon has also showed face on the runway. Neon was a big part of Prada’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection, where it shone against the show’s slick, black backdrop. Chanel also dabbled in the hue for its Spring/Summer 2018 collection, showing sneakers with bright orange accents and a clear bag with neon piping. So, like it or not, you’re about to be blinded by brights in the upcoming season. But, if you’re still not sold on neon, consider the different ways to wear it, from subtle to screaming.

If you want to ease your way into neon, try taking a cue from Kim Kardashian and Hailey Baldwin by coating your nails with a fluorescent lemon-lime color. You’ll forget you’re even wearing the bold shade until you get a flash of it in your peripherals. A more direct way of adapting the trend while still remaining subtle is with neon eyeliner. You could opt to wear it alone or stack it up with black eyeliner underneath if you still want to define your eye shape. The next step to bold is a wash of bright, neon eyeshadow all over your eyelids; now you’re starting to make a statement. Super easy to achieve, this look only requires one shadow and some blending. However, if you’re feeling graphic, don’t blend at all and just let geometry take over.

Something a bit edgier to try is neon lashes. Think bright silly putty cemented onto your lashes; sounds scary, but looks chic. A tip for when wearing colored mascara: don’t go directly in with the color, start with a black base and then build on top of that. Makeup artist Gucci Westman also suggests coating just the tips of your lashes with color for a less dramatic, but still edgy, look.

Now that the eyes are covered, work your way down to hair. Colorful queens Simi and Haze are always innovative and original, so you already know their neon game has been strong for a while now. Recently, either Simi or Haze (I still can’t tell them apart?) dyed the ends of her hair highlighter green for Coachella and wow did it look amazing. Once you’ve frosted your tips with neon, it’s finally time to address your outfit. A bright bikini is a good way to just dip your toe into color, or you can go full Sita Abellan in neon Chanel punched up further with neon accents. But, if acid rap realized isn’t your vibe, just stick to one highlighter shade per outfit. If this is all too much for you, be comforted that it’s the nature of trends to eventually fade out, so who knows how long neon will be kicking our retinas’ ass. And if you love everything about this, enjoy thriving all summer ‘18.

Makeup Trends Heating Up This Summer

by

The summertime can bring to light some unexpected things and makeup is no exception to that. Maybe the heat has gone to our heads, making us so lightheaded that all that’s left is color. Or maybe it’s the sun liberating us from our winter coats and bundled up minds that leads to a bright, creative summer. Either way, this summer’s sun is working hard to melt away any inhibitions you might have and urges you to go boldly into the uncharted Sahara that is this season’s makeup trends.

 

1. Inner Corner Color

Try swapping your typical shimmery eyeshadow out for a bolder shade that will make your tear ducts pop like no highlight could. Pair the look with clean skin to limit distractions and keep the focus on your eyes.

 

2. Loud Blush

Your face is a blank canvas, so paint it! Makeup artist Priscilla Ono shows off the ultimate cheek gradient she created using all Fenty Beauty, of course. Celebrate being summertime fine by daring to live every day like it’s the Met Gala.

 

3. Crystal Eyes

Bejeweled eyes are being made chic for the Summer. The key is to choose dainty-sized crystals to adorn your eyes with. Rosy cheeks and natural lips would look amazing paired with diamond lids.

 

4. Color Block

Glossy or geometric, just swipe on some color and you’re ready for anything from a beach day party to a late night disco. Try pairing this with the Loud Blush trend if extra is all you know.

 

5. Bright Lashes

Go full-alien by batting colorful eyelashes at anyone that passes by. If you don’t want to commit to buying a colored mascara, try running a spoolie through any colorful pomade to create your own, custom color.

Trendy Beauty Secret: Fake Freckles

by

The beauty industry is constantly changing and there are always new trends to keep up with. Have you always wanted freckles or wondered how you would look with them? You can instantly apply freckles with an eyeliner pencil, dotting it on the places that you would love them to be. This look has been trending and growing since 2012 and it is a great way to change your appearance temporarily.

 

Youtube’s Sonjdradeluxe, in addition to other makeup artists, has raved about this look being the next big thing. Sonjdra is a professional when it comes to makeup and she isn’t afraid to try the newest trends.

In order to achieve this look, Sonjdra used NYX Micro Brow pencil in Espresso to create small dots all over her face. The trick is to make sure you use an eyebrow pencil that is dark brown, in order to create a more realistic look. You can make the freckles as light or as dark as you want.

This trendy look will also look great on deeper skin tones. When beauty influencer Jackie Aina tried it, the results were beautiful. If you want to rock this look, it is important to have confidence and embrace your features, because makeup is all about enhancing your beauty and having fun along the way.

Why You Should Be Using the Hush Beauty App

by

Let’s face it, most of us millennials are on a pretty strict budget. We don’t have the money to always get that new makeup palette that we’re dying to have. Or if you’re like me, you’re so busy that you don’t notice when you’ve run out of foundation before you could purchase a replacement. You love trying all of the new trends, but you don’t always have the budget to purchase new, brand name products. Sound familiar? Then this is why you should be using the Hush beauty app now.

If you are on a beauty budget and you haven’t heard of Hush, stop here and download the app. You’ll thank me later. This app is the reason why I never panic or worry when I’m about to run out of products.

Using the Hush Beauty App: How it Works and Why it’s Awesome

I discovered Hush last year, in mid-2017. The current form of the app, launched in January of 2017, offers countless beauty products for cheaper prices. And the best part? Shipping is always free, no matter how much or how little you purchase. If you choose to purchase via the Hush website, there is a shipping charge of $5 if your order is under $25. The creators of Hush intended the app version to be the primary interface for shoppers. It’s simple to navigate, with a scroll-through menu at the top, and tabs at the bottom to switch between a user newsfeed, a search bar, the main menu, notifications, and of course, your personal Hush account and profile. According to Racked.com, one of Hush’s advisors, Alexis Maybank says that Hush is like “if Snapchat and HSN had a love child.” And it’s true! The app’s interface feels like a social media app, which makes it really easy to use from the get-go.  Another awesome reason why you should be using the hush beauty app

Hush carries well-known makeup brands, as well as high-quality dupes. The company is based out of Los Angeles, so if you reside in California your package will reach you pretty quickly. Otherwise, expect a general shipping time frame. Hush is a lot more convenient than going to the nearest Sephora, Ulta, or Mac Cosmetics store when you’re in a time-crunch. Or maybe you just don’t wanna leave the house! The best part is, you don’t have to.

Some of the Most Popular Products on Hush

There are plenty of great, brand name products you’ll find on Hush, like Batiste Dry Shampoo, Almay, and The Original Beauty Blender. But what is truly great about Hush are the dupes and the little guys. I’ve tried a lot of the products offered on Hush and they don’t disappoint, especially for the money value. Some featured brands are Bad Habit and Face Candy, both of which are cruelty-free companies based out of Los Angeles.

They also have frequent sales and discounts. Plus, if you join the app, you’ll get Hush rewards points for every purchase you make. Eventually, these points add up to dollars off a purchase!  So now do you see why you should be using the hush beauty app

Why You Shouldn’t be Intimidated by Negative Space Eyeliner

by

So, we can all agree that eyeliner is hard to master, right? The process of getting your two lines to match perfectly can be excruciating and time consuming. Well, f*ck a feline flick. It’s time to get down with eyeliner that’s a bit more open. Negative space eyeliner celebrates imperfections and feels less rigid than traditional eyeliner. It’s the perfect technique to try when you feel like being extra playful with your makeup; plus, you can be as extravagant or reserved as you wish with it. A conversation-starting look would include adding chunky glitter to exaggerate your lines, while a chill, black double wing will just hint at rebellion.

Image Credit: Rex 

The cubic, mod vibe that this geometric eyeliner trend gives off seems to channel the sixties and its intense cut creases. History repeating itself is nothing new, of course. The colorful eyeshadow of the seventies are also back in a big way. The makeup world seems to have tired itself of looks that are just pretty. Those looks have their place, however, because who doesn’t want to look like a bombshell occasionally. But, more and more, people seem to be taking risks with their makeup and not minding if others find it distasteful or garish. This switch-up is liberating and should encourage you to just do what you want with your face, it is yours after all. So, don’t be intimidated, just have fun, and if you’re too shy to wear your edgy beat out in public, at least take some bangin’ Instagram shots before wiping it away.

Estée Lauder’s Violette Has the Most Aesthetically Pleasing YouTube Channel

by

You’ve seen all the run-of-the-mill beauty channels on YouTube *cue the high energy intro music and perfect posing*. While these videos are awesome and always deliver fierce looks, they can feel repetitive and unoriginal at times. Just when I had hit peak uninspired, I came across Violette’s channel and was instantly revived. Her calm demeanor oozes French ease, and her fresh makeup philosophy is all about artistry. A little background on Violette, she is a makeup artist, beauty consultant, and Estée Lauder’s Global Beauty Director, casual. On top of all that, she creates gorgeous videos that take you around New York City to her favorite bars and restaurants where she grabs a drink and swipes on a makeup look perfect for the occasion and of course, her color mood. From her face to her eyes, Violette’s preferred tool is her fingers. However, for her, that doesn’t translate into a boring look. She’s an advocate for wearing a glittery, smokey eye while grabbing coffee and a blue lip for cocktails.

Recently, she’s branched out and invited guests onto her channel to explore her other passions, such as cooking and flower arrangements. However, makeup is always at the heart of her videos. She is big on color moods and is inspired by the vibrant shades of food or the texture of flowers, which result in a unique makeup look that fits the bit’s aesthetic effortlessly. The organic nature of her videos will put you at ease and make you want to have an intense rummage through your makeup collection all in the same vein. Her channel’s name is violette_fr, the same as her Instagram, which you should also give a follow for inspiring, artistic content.

Lavender Eyeshadow is All You’re Going to Want to Wear this Spring

by

Bold, primary colors have been dominating social media for a while now but, with spring (supposedly) around the corner, things are starting to lighten up. Pastels have begun to make their move to the forefront of our closets and makeup bags. Are they as groundbreaking as florals? Maybe. But nevertheless, the Pantone Color of the Year 2018, Ultra Violet, is taking over and it’s all you’re ever going to want to wear.

Purple rain, grape soda, lavender realness, this look is everything! Geometric shadow has never looked better. To achieve this eye, trace out your desired shape with whatever purple hue you choose, then slightly blend your lines, just enough so that they’re blurred but still maintain their shape. After that, simply fill in the space with a lighter, lilac shade like you’re coloring by number.

Lavender Latex

The combination of a glossy lid and lilac shadow is next level. The beauty about this look is that it’s meant to be messy, which means that anyone can recreate it. Just a swipe of purple and a few dabs of gloss and you’re finished. Top your eyes off with spidery lashes and a fluffy brow to finish off this editorial, yet easy, look.

Purple Flush

The flawless gradient in this look just extended my life by twenty years. This blown out eyeshadow to blush combination screams festival, but can definitely be toned down to more wearable standards. Multiple dimensions is key to this eye look, so pick out a few purples and just get creative with your blending. Stick to the basics of having a darker color in the crease and a lighter color on the lid to make your efforts full-proof.

What’s New in Makeup: Stila Cosmetics Spring 2018

by

Nothing gets me more excited than new beauty bits, especially when they are products that will live up to any type of hype. Made by one of my favorite brands and a part of their own latest collection, Stila Cosmetics has launched their Spring 2018 Bohemian Beauty Collection filled with glitter, glow, and everything nice. Taking on an eclectic and artistic approach while remaining free-spirited, this line is made for everyone who loves playing with makeup, even on your days off. Stila has come out with a total of 45 products consisting of liquid lipsticks, eyeliners, liquid top coats, and my two favorites, liquid eye shadows and highlighters. This line is perfect for a transitional spring look that is ready to defrost any winter blues.

Stila’s Liquid Eye Shadows have continuously dazzled the eyes of people who apply and admire them. Their Shimmer & Glow versions for Spring 2018 do not fall short in that department either. They are formulated the same as the original Glitter & Glow, but they have a smaller particle pearl to create a high impact of shimmering pigment; even with this change, they recall our love for the one that started it all with a refreshing take. It’s that radiating glitter style without the glitter!

Their Bohemian Trend Shades contain three Shimmer & Glow versions along with three Glitter & Glow ones, providing a perfect balance for anyone who wants to pair them and go freestyle. With shades of gold, aqua, and lilac, your eyes will be blooming in color.

The Glitter & Glow Highlighters hit every detail their name says they are—glitter and glow. What else can you ask for? This breakthrough formula contains a multi-color mix of pearl and glitter in a sheer, water-infused base to a provide a smooth and effortless wash of sparkle to your skin. Every time I apply this to my cheekbones, tip of my nose, upper lip, and brow bone I instantly feel like an ethereal pixie ready to help spread the new season.
