Notes from Land's End: April 17

April 17th, 2012

Michael DeVellis’ Manhattan-based Powder Group is bringing Evolution, a week long intensive for runway makeup artists, to Provincetown April 30th through May 4th. Ahbi Nishman, locally loved fashionista, will be back in town to co-ordinate the models needed for the course. Why not get a taste of runway and glamour in a town where more men than women put on a “full face”?

In my excitement to whip out a mascara wand and twirl my lashes, I asked Evolution instructor James Vincent and Christine Horovitz, owner of the new “Kiss and Make Up”, to give me their take on the hottest looks for summer.

James says:

The perfect summer makeup looks easy and effortless. My celebrity clients Joan Jett, Jillian Michaels and Liv Tyler all want glowing skin so I start with a great moisturizer like Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer with SPF. It keeps your face protected from the sun while you are out soaking up the fun.

I love foundation with SPF that stays set all day - something you can put on and not worry about. MAC Face and Body Makeup is the perfect perspiration-proof choice for every woman to feel chic at the beach. Next, I recommend a lightweight mineral powder that lets the skin breath like Youngblood Rice Powder.

This season’s eyes are gorgeous in mined metals like gold and bronze shadows with a subtle smoky feel. Make Up For Ever pops the eye with Aqua Cream and Aqua Shadow, products that provide all day, smudge proof color. Pair it with the brand’s Aqua Pencil and Aqua Lash Mascara and you’ll look like you stepped out of the pages of a magazine in makeup that stays flawlessly in place.

Lips are sheer, soft and close to the tone of the lip this summer. For a natural kick of color that moisturizes and protects at the same time, try vegan and cruelty-free Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Hush, the ideal shade for every day.

Finish the look with blush and bronzer. I love NARS Multiple in “South Beach”, Apply this shade wherever sun hits the face for a glow that keeps going. Add a kiss of color with Stila Convertible Color in Poppy that brightens the complexion while whitening the teeth and eyes.

Lastly, set with Make Up For Ever Mist and Fix and keep that face in place on the beach, in the bars or enjoying the sunset at Herring Cove.

Christine says:

James is spot on. The ideal look for this season is a soft smoky bronze eye with a sheer wash of peachy pink cheek color and a sheer pink lipstick. It gives the skin a healthy, vibrant look and looks effortless, which is what the summer is all about! Model and townie Eilene Wegge can also take a dark liner and smudge around her eye, hit the cheeks with a bronzer and pop a bright pink gloss on her lips for a night out on the town. I also love a cat eye with a vibrant sheer lip.

With the opening of her cosmetics store, Kiss and Make Up, Christine brings her love for Provincetown and experience working for top brands like MAC, Stila, NARS, Christian Dior and Lancome to 357 Commercial Street, the former Now Voyager Bookstore, across from the library. Designed for men and women alike, she will be open by the middle of May! Until then, please visit her on Facebook.

I highly encourage everyone to model for the upcoming Evolution and get a chance to see what makeup can do for you, no matter what your age. Come have fun and receive a bag of cosmetic goodies. To model, contact Ahbi at ahbi@thepowdergroup.com or on their Facebook Page.
