Last week we had the fun opportunity to go on CT Style and share a “pretty” Hair & Make Up look for Halloween. Pretty is what we do so it was fun to create a “fairy” look and showcase a different side of Halloween. One a little less scary.

Ashley Matta of Beauty Entourage created the make up for the look. Elena, one of our own artists, happily became our muse!

Our call time was 8 am so that meant hair and make up started at 5 am before we headed to the studio!

As you can see, it is still dark outside!

Make Up was complete so it was time to do the hair. Elena has long gorgeous hair but what kind of fairy princess would she be if she didn’t have even more long gorgeous hair.



We were ready to head to the studio!

Thank you Stars of Avon for the beautiful dress that inspired the look.

Controlling oily skin is an ongoing battle between the skin and overzealous sebaceous glands responsible for the production of sebum. When your skin goes into overdrive, it can be nearly impossible to manage the shine that appears on your face due to excessive oil. Unfortunately, oily skin sufferers may also be confronted with associated skin problems. Oily skin and large pores often walk hand-in-hand, which can contribute to acne flair-ups. Follow these skin care and makeup tips to combat shine for a clearer, healthier looking complexion.

Switch Cleansers

If you’re struggling with oily skin, your usual cleanser isn’t doing your face any justice. Consider making the switch to a cleanser specifically designed to slow the production of sebum, as well as remove excess oil from the skin’s surface. Opt for a mild foaming formula to help wash away oils and target acne-causing bacteria without over-drying the skin.

Avoid Irritants

Certain skin care products can do the skin more harm than good. By identifying what products or ingredients aggravate your oily skin, you can avoid these irritants at all costs. Some common skin care product ingredients known to trigger oil production include mint, menthol, citrus, eucalyptus, and denatured alcohol.

Hydrate with Serum

Even oily skin sufferers need that extra boost of moisture to hydrate and nourish the skin. Avoid heavy moisturizers that can clog pores and contribute to more oil and acne. Serums are the ideal hydrators for people with oily skin, as they are lighter than most creams and lotions, and deliver moisture deep within the skin’s outer layers.

Use a Primer

Always use a primer as a base for your makeup. Cosmetic primers are effective at keeping oil at bay, and can help makeup go on smoother and last longer. Primers containing silicone can also help reduce the appearance of large pores and fine lines on the face. Seek a primer that provides a fresh, matte finish.

Apply Oil-Free Makeup

Not all cosmetics mesh well with people with oily skin, especially those that are heavy or contain pore-clogging oils. Upgrade your cosmetic collection to contain only oil-free or water-based cosmetics to avoid an increase in oil production. When possible, give your skin a breather and go au natural.

Carry Essentials

Keep a few oil fighting products and tools in your handbag to ensure that you’re well-prepared for oil removal when you’re out of the house. Blotting sheets are a lifesaver for soaking up excess oil on the skin, but be sure to blot, not rub. Toner-soaked towelettes provide a similar service, but are best used when you’re not wearing makeup, such as after a trip to the gym.

Many factors can contribute to oily skin, including genetics, hormones, stress, and naturally overactive oil glands. However, it’s important to note that not all oil is bad. In fact, oil is vital for hydrating and protecting the skin. To keep oil production at a healthy level, it may be necessary to make a few changes in your beauty routine. These changes will allow you to better control shine while achieving that healthy, glowing complexion you crave.
