You only need five minutes to look fabulous. Spring is the perfect time to freshen up your beauty routine with new colors. Here are the steps to a simple makeup routine that incorporates contouring and blending.

1. Naked face, prepped with Jan Marini Skin Care Management System.

2. Contoured with Dream Tint Medium below the cheekbones and at hairline to shorten the forehead. Applied Dream Tint in Medium Light above cheekbone, chin and center of the nose to highlight.

3. Blended with Dream Tint for the perfect canvas and misted with Balance Spray to set.

4.  Awake blush was swept on to the apples of the cheeks and blended toward the hairline.

5. Apply brown/black eyeliner directly to the inner bottom lash lid.

6. To finish the eyes, start with Lash Conditioner to protect, thicken and elongate the look of the lash.

7.  Finish with Black Onyx Pure Lash Mascara and the Just Kissed Forever Lip Stain in Forever Pink.

Book a Makeup Application appointment with an esthetician and let us help you discover your 5 Minute Face for spring.

The sea salt and mineral blend creates waves and builds tousled, touchable texture and body.

Mira Education – “What is Color?”

30 Sep

At Mira, all of our stylists recently took a color class taught by Rachel from Wella. The class focused on digging deeper into analyzing all the components that are in a tube of color and developer, what their jobs are, and how hair reacts to each of these components. This knowledge helps to take formulating and understanding color to another level, enhancing our ability to think outside of the box in order to create custom color results for each of our clients.
