Madonna MDNA Tour 

Madonna wore most al of the FRENCH ACCENTS for her Premiere for MDNA TOUR. She asked her professional make up artist Sammy H Mourabit, to make her up to look like the former film star Marlené Dietrich.

 

To achieve Madonna’s flawless complexion, Sammy first hydrated her face with Votre Vu Attentive Crème de Jour for Sensitive Skin without forgetting the neck with Portrait Collar Restorative Neck Crème.

He then dabbed Votre Vu’s Love Me Deux Concealer in Champagne under her eyes and also on the darker areas of her skin, to even out her skin tone.
One of the tricks he used was mixing the Love Me Deux Nourishing Moisture Tint in Champagne with the Attentive to achieve a dewy look.
Next, he accentuated her cheekbones by contouring them with Votre Vu’s Beaute en Bronze Tantalizing Bronzer Duo.

To create a 30s eyebrow, he first groomed the brows with a brush, and then applied the Arch de Triumphe Daily Brow Definer in Warm inside the natural eyebrow line. The thinner line captures that 30’s look.
To cover the excess natural hair, he dabbed some Votre Vu’s Love Me Deux Concealer in Champagne, giving the illusion of a clean groomed eye without the need for over-plucking.

For the lips, Sammy first contoured them in a heart shape reminiscent of the 30’s style with the Drawmatic Lip Liner in Naked (coming out in September).
He followed by mixing two shades of the French Kiss Moisture Riche Lipstick (coming out in September) for a luminous and voluptuous effect.
He applied the darker tone, Margaux, to the outer lines of the lip and the lighter tone, Annette, to the inner lip.
On the lashes, he used Eiffel Power Mascara only in the center of the eyelashes.
To intensify the 30s look, he added some false lashes to the outer corner of the eye.
The last touch was the Vu-On Rouge in Bouquet Rose on her cheeks and a little bit of the Belle Poudre HD Sheer Face Finish in Light.
The result was a modern Marlene Dietrich look.

Layers of our SKIN and their important roles. 

The surface of the skin, the part that is visible to the naked eye which skincare products are applied, is in fact a covering of dead skin cells called the Stratum Corneum.

Under this surface, the many functions of the skin take place through three thin yet very distinct layers of cellular tissue: the epidermis, the dermis, and the subcutaneous (fat) layer.

The Epidermis layer is responsible for the look and health of the skin, as well as protecting it from moisture loss and penetration of bacteria. The epidermis gives the skin its glow, suppleness, youthfulness and texture. This is also where signs of poor diet, smoking, excess sun exposure and free radical damage are visible. It takes approximately 28 days for a new cell to move to the surface of the skin where it becomes flat and will eventually be exfoliated.

The Dermis the second layer of the skin. It is much thicker and more resilient than the epidermis. This layer serves two principle functions. One is the nutrition of the skin through its network of blood vessels and capillaries. The second is the formation of a supporting framework. The dermis gives the skin elasticity.

The Subcutaneous is the skin’s third and last layer. It is highly elastic and has fat cells acting as “shock absorbers”, thus supporting delicate blood vessels and nerve endings. It is in this, the deepest layer that collagen collapses or wrinkles develop first.
