Hello everyone! This is LONG overdue and for those of you who don't know, I no longer have The Lipstick Lounge and we now own The Blush Bar Makeup Studio/School. All inquiries regarding makeup and special effects education and appointments can be sent through that page or our website,
Thank you for your continued support!

[06/03/14]   Due to popular demand, I've decided to switch the portfolio workshop to the hairstyling 2 workshop! Those of you interested, please let me know!

If you want to take either or both of these, let me know! :)

IMATS New York 2014

[03/18/14]   New classes starting on March 31st! If you or anyone you know is interested in taking either our Journeyman, beauty, airbrushing or special effects makeup course, please contact us. Promotional prices for our grand opening classes! Feel free to share with anyone who might be interested. We offer $100 per person you refer!

Tip Tuesday! For long lasting blush, apply a cream/gel blush or lipstick to the cheekbones and apples of your cheeks first, then apply your favorite powder blush on top. The lipstick or cream will act as a sticky base for your powder blush, increasing its staying power! Be sure to pat the blush on to avoid a blotchy blend.

[03/10/14]   Come see us tomorrow at the International Beauty Show (IBS) at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC. We will be doing 5 different makeup demonstrations all day long! Hope to see you there!

It's wear it Wednesday! Our weekly "wear it" post will focus on our favorite beauty products that we are loving now. So this week it's all about foundation! Our favorite this week is Eve Pearl's HD foundation treatment. It's long lasting formula is great for all skin types and the packaging has a built in palette for mess free application! Leave us a comment with your current foundation favorite for us to try!

Tip Tuesday! Create the illusion of a fuller lash line by tightlining your eyes! To tightline, apply eyeliner to the upper waterline (wet inner eye tissue below the upper lash line). Here's a trick to tightline easily.
1. Grab an eyelash curler and gel eyeliner
2. Apply gel liner to the rubber stopper in the bottom part the lash curler.
3. Curl lashes as close to lash line as possible.
4. Done! Your lashes are curled AND you've tightlined your eyes!!
Hope everyone enjoyed this tip! "Like" for more tips like this from us!
