Looking for Holiday Inspiration? See Kandee Johnson!

One of the great things about living in the digital age is that we have access to brilliant people sharing their thoughts on just about everything – including makeup and fashion. About every month or so in the Makeover Essentials office, we find a new favorite makeup artist or fashion guru to follow online, and for the holiday season we’ve landed on Kandee Johnson.

Kandee has a go-to look for every occasion, and is quickly becoming someone our younger generation can look up to. She has an extensive background as a celebrity makeup artist on movies, TV shows, commercials, and celebrity appearances. If you check out her blog, she has pictures of herself with some of the famous people she’s made up, and also photos of rodeo cowboys she worked with on an ad campaign. She made some of the roughest, toughest men in the world look their best while still maintaining their iconic rugged appearance. That’s a real testament to her skill, in our Team Makeover Essentials opinion.

She’s a bit of a celebrity in her own right too, having been a guest on talk shows like “Good Morning America,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” and “Fablife.” This, plus her inspirational Instagram posts and fun makeup tutorials makes her a gal we can count on for beauty advice when we absolutely, positively need to look our best: like the holidays!

We’ve got you covered for all your beauty go-tos this holiday season, and recommend Kandee Johnson to give you great advice on how to create an unforgettable look. Check out our Makeover Essentials [Newswire] feed to learn more.

The Perfect Gift for The Holiday Season

We’ll freely admit to being biased, but all the same Team Makeover Essentials has THE perfect product to gift for the holidays. We’ve brought together all of our year-round products and created special holiday boxes that should retail for over $300! Because it’s the most wonderful time of year, we’re offering this package to you for only $49.99.

The Makeover Essentials gift box includes Passion 10 Eyeshadow Palette, Moisturizing Socks, Face Primer, Eye Dazel Duo, Shimmer Powder Brush, and our Puff Pack. It’s the perfect gift for any beauty product lover in your life (including you) and you just can’t go wrong with this price.

Another great thing about the products in this year’s holiday box is that they’re timeless. Glamming it up for a New Year’s Eve bash with our eye shadow palette will always be in style, as will recovering from a cold night out with our moisturizing socks. So, we recommend stocking up now while we’re offering this fantastic price and getting a head start on gift shopping for 2020.

We love giving our friends and loved ones gifts any time of year, but especially during the winter holidays. That’s probably what has us most excited about this year’s holiday box. As gift-givers ourselves, we know what a great deal this is. Follow Makeover Essentials on [Instagram] to learn more about our incredible holiday gift boxes.

Join Us In Following Becca Tilley and Her New Fall Line

Makeover Essentials is proud to be part of the beauty community, and we are always on the lookout for the most fashion-forward guru. This month, Makeover Essentials is LIVING for Becca Tilley. If you’re not already familiar with her work, she’s a vlogger, podcaster, YouTuber, trendsetter, and fashionista. In other words, this girl really knows her stuff!

And we’re super excited that Becca just launched her own fierce fall fashion line with Macy’s. Her line is filled with plaids, animal prints, and bright colors, along with mix-and-match suits. With this line, Becca shows that she’s not afraid to challenge the norm by shrugging off the traditional seasonal standards.

In an interview, Becca was asked about her new clothing line, and this is what she had to say: “My goal was to create a line that anyone with any shape or body type or size could put on and feel confident in themselves. For someone to go put on clothes from my line, whether they’re an extra small or not an extra small, and be able to walk out feeling so good about themselves in something that I helped design and create, that was my mind-set when creating it.”

If you’re not already, we’re sure you’ll be a big fan of Becca Tilley and her irresistible fall fashion line. See who else we’re following by checking out our Makeover Essentials [Newswire] feed.

What’s in YOUR Makeup? Ours Brings Out the Best in You

Team Makeover Essentials is committed to helping people look their best with products that are and pure and effective. Not only does this mean high-quality ingredients, but safe ingredients as well. We protect our customers by testing to make sure our products are free from scary things like heavy metals.

That’s right, there are no heavy metals in our products. What’s more, we go a step further and ensure there is no titanium dioxide in our powder products. Titanium dioxide is found in 99 percent of blushes, powders, and (most commonly) eyeshadow. There is an ongoing controversy concerning this metal, with some experts believing that titanium dioxide (TD) is toxic when the particles become airborne (as powdery particles do). This is why Makeover Essentials ensures that our eyeshadow and other powder products are safe by testing them to ensure they are free of TD and meet our safety standards.

We also make sure our products meet all USA-allowed ingredient requirements – and then test them again to be sure there are no surprises after the production process. Not only does this keep out the heavy metals like lead, but also all known carcinogens. After all, people look their best when they’re healthy, and we want our products to contribute to your healthy glow.

We don’t just sell makeup: we’re part of a lifestyle choice that helps people look and feel their best. Follow Makeover Essentials on [Instagram] to learn more about our commitment to quality.

Take Center Stage at This Year’s Halloween Celebration

For those of us in the makeup biz, Halloween is the ultimate holiday! This is our time to shine, and we mean that quite literally – glow-in-the-dark makeup can bring an eerie light to this year’s party. If that’s not your thing though, here are some of the other looks from online influencers that Team Makeover Essentials found while creeping around (get it…cuz’ Halloween?) YouTube:

Freaky Clown: Hayley Bui takes a Halloween classic and puts her signature spin on it. For this haunting yet beautiful look, she starts with red smoky eyeshadow and then layers colors from the peach palette. Eyelashes, eyeliner, and heavy mascara accentuate the clear contact lenses, and she uses liquid eyeliner for the facial design as well. Blood-red liquid lipstick adds just the right amount of glamorous creepiness.

Gori-fied Little Mermaid: One of our favorite artists in the Makeover Essentials office is Glam and Gore, and their take on the Little Mermaid lives up to the hype. For the young (or the young at heart) the demo shows how to use bright, bold red lips, red eyebrows, and a cat’s-eye look using white eyeliner to make the eyes appear wider. From there, the effects of ocean pollution and a fishhook are added. Scary!

Mother of Dragons: With a blonde wig, simple nude lip gloss, bronze eyeshadow and luscious brown eyebrows, Carli Bybel transforms herself into Khaleesi, Mother of Dragons. This look is sure to bring the heat to this year’s holiday celebration.

Halloween only comes once a year, and with these looks the Makeover Essentials team will be making the most of it. Follow us on Instagram for more costume suggestions.

We’ve Got You Covered on Fall 2019 Makeup Trends

The more things change, the more things stay the same, as the saying goes, and this year’s fall looks certainly have a fun 90s throwback twist. You can expect to see lots of glitter, the triumphant return of blue eyeshadow, and a bit more eye bling thanks to the hit show “Euphoria” that’s inspiring Instagram makeup artists and those of us here at Makeover Essentials.

Also, be on the lookout for neon corners this autumn. While a full neon lid might draw too much attention when compared to the traditionally darker fall tones, we still crave a pop of color. We dust our go-to Makeover Essentials summer shadow just in the corner of our eyes for normal days, but when we’re feeling bolder, we cover our entire lids in a bright crybaby blue for the full 90s fantasy.

Darker lip liner is making a surprise comeback from the decade of grunge as well. Paired with subtle browns and gold highlights, this is a guaranteed head-turner. Of course, if we’re on the subject of turning heads, we need to consider the wine-colored palette of lipsticks that were so popular at the end of the 20th century. A rich burgundy or Bordeaux pairs perfectly with fresh skin and your favorite mascara. Or take the wine colors to your eyes as well for a dramatic date-night look.

We’re swimming in 90s nostalgia, and we’ve never looked better! Follow Makeover Essentials on Pinterest to learn how to make fall even more colorful.
