Q&A with Too Faced's Jerrod Blandino

 

 

We are so excited about the launch of the multi-tasking Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm. What makes Beauty Balm the makeup bag must-have?

Beauty Balm is the next generation of makeup for today's modern woman. It combines the power of skincare science with innovative cosmetics to create the perfect hybrid of immediate, radiant finish with long-term results! Beauty Balm is a super makeup that takes the place of 5 separate products (foundation, primer, moisturizer, treatment and sunscreen) all in one step!


 

With awards season upon us, what are the key looks and your tips & tricks to get us through?

1) Always use primer to make sure your makeup lasts all night. Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer refines skin while creating the perfect canvas for application of foundation, powders, and bronzers.  Lip Insurance prevents lipstick feathering while Shadow Insurance prevents eye shadow creasing and enhances color intensity.

 

 

 

2) Luminze and Highlight to make sure your natural beauty is accentuated. The Too Faced Natural Face Palette includes 6 products in one convenient compact to create an irresistibly sexy glow.



3) Use waterproof, tear-proof eyeliner like the Too Faced Perfect Eyes Eyeliner just in case you get teary-eyed during your awards show acceptance speech!
 

 


Shadow Insurance has become a world-famous cult product and KIT customers love it! Can you share with us any celebrity clients that can't live without it?

Carrie Underwood loves Too Faced products, especially Shadow Insurance. Other fans include Katherine Heigl, Audrina Patridge, and Hilary Duff.



 
You often push the boundaries within the beauty industry and create extremely innovative products, such as your best-selling Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer – Why do you think P&P is so popular?

Primed and Poreless Original Formula contains Retinol, Mulberry Extract, and Vitamin A to smooth and prime while simultaneously brightening skin, making it not only effective but also good for you. Similarly, Primed & Poreless Bronze Tint contains SPF 20 and a universal bronzer to warm up your skin while protecting and priming.

 


 
If you could only choose 3, what would your deserted-island-must-have-products be?

Primed & Poreless Bronze Tint SPF 20 (to protect from the sun), Tanning Bed in a Tube and Sun Bunny Bronzer (to faux my glow)

 


           
What is the greatest beauty tip or piece of advice you've ever been given?

Be confident!
 
Can you give us a sneak-peek of what we can expect from Too Faced this year?

Products that combine high-tech innovation with good-for-you ingredients, multiple benefits, and the Too Faced signature pizzazz!

Get The Look - Too Faced Natural Beauty

 

 

STEP 1
On clean skin, start your application of Tinted Beauty Balm on the center of the face closest to the nose and sweep in a downward motion. Next, take a small amount of the universal concealer from the Natural Face Collection and gently press it around the tear duct of the eye and underneath the eye area.

            

STEP 2
Using the Bronzebuki Brush, dust Bronze Veil from the Natural Face Collection onto your cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin. Next, apply the Luminizer to the highest point of your cheek, underneath your brow arch and to the cupid’s bow of your lips. Finally, apply the Crème Blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend up.



STEP 3
Sweep Night Light from the Natural at Night Eye Shadow Collection (launching at KIT in April) from lash to brow. Contour your eye crease with After Hours and then line upper and lower lash lines with Eclipse. Until Natural at Night launches, create a similar look using Too Faced's Smokey Eye Shadow Collection.

 


STEP 4
To complete your look mix the Lip Crème and Lip Gloss out of your Natural Kiss Lip Palette and apply using the included lip brush.

TREND TIME WITH TOO FACED

 

We go one on one with Too Faced's Director of Global Artistry, Kalina Fernandez to get the scoop on the hottest trends from NYFW, and how to create them at home...

 

Kit Cosmetics: With NYFW just wrapping up, what is your take on the key trends in beauty for this season?

Kalina Fernandez: I have to admit, I loved this seasons makeup trends at fashion week. The two that stand out for me were eyes and lips. Intense gunmetal blues like Too Faced Neptune Shadow, merald greens like Too Faced Lucky Charms Shadow and blackened plums with high shimmer were the focus on eyes. To recreate that high fashion shimmer eye, we have created Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue a specially formulated glitter glue that locks down glitter and enhances its reflective quality as well as Glamour Dust glitter pigment, a loose luxurious pigment powder. Lips were bold, bright and matte: in red (try Lip Of Luxury Runway Red), fuschia’s and coral (try Lip Of Luxury Pink Flamingo), while skin remained clean, luminous with just a pop of colour on the apples of the cheeks.

 

kit: What is your favorite trend, and how would we recreate this look at home?

KF: There is no doubt that the bold lip was a popular trend. My favorite look would have to be a subtle eye that was barely lined, luminous bare skin and a bold matte lip in red, fuschia and coral. The bold lip is probably the easiest trend to recreate. You can always blot your lip to desired boldness if you are not used to wearing such an intense lip colour.

kit: Can you describe what it’s like to be backstage at a Fashion Show for all of us stuck ‘front-of-house’?

KF: Being backstage is my favorite place to be… other than the Too Faced office, the vibe is fast paced and a little crazy but in the end there is nothing more gratifying to see the completion and collaboration of the clothes, makeup, hair and music walking down the runway.

kit: How did you become a makeup artist? 

KF: I went to school to be a hair stylist and soon into my career I noticed that my focus was not only hair colour but makeup. I became a makeup artist for a photographer and the rest is my personal history.

kit: What is the best thing about working for Too Faced?

KF: I can’t just name one thing that makes working at Too Faced such a joy! Jerrod and Jeremy are the driving force behind the brand and to see them in the office every day of the week is inspiring. All of the people that I have worked with both in the office and in the field are loyal, kind and very special. So I would have to say, the people make working for the brand the best thing about my job.

kit: You have worked with some of the most recognizable faces in the industry (Helena Christensen, Eva Longoria and Sienna Miller just to name a few). Do you ever get star-struck?

KF: I have never been the kind of person that gets star struck and I think for that reason I was always chosen to work with celebrity clients. Celebrities are people too and I think they appreciate being treated as such.

kit: What products are always in your beauty bag?

KF: Too faced Lip Of Luxury in Runway Red and Drop Dead Red and various secret items that we are working on (hee hee)!

kit: What is your biggest beauty indulgence?

KF: Skincare!!

kit: If you could give us one piece of beauty advice, what would it be?

KF: Take care of your skin inside and out, wear sunblock everyday. Drink water. I drink a lot of coconut water and started when I traveled in Asia. It is a powerful electrolite and helps with dehydration. If your skin doesn’t look good your makeup wont look good. You have the power to change this.

kit: Too Faced are always on the cutting-edge when it comes to beauty, is there any exciting new product launches that you can tell us about?

KF: We have so many new products in the works! I have to say my favorites would have to be our NEW Primed and Poreless Tint, which provides the perfect sunkissed glow. Another favorite of mine has to be our NEW Full Bloom Cream Cheek and Lip Colour that pairs perfectly with our Full Bloom Ultra Flush Powder Blush. These work beautifully individually or as a layered long wearing blush look.

RACHEL ZOE HEARTS KIT

 

People were, like, dying (in the non-literal sense of course) all over kit HQ when we found that Rachel Zoe, the undisputed god sister of Hollywood Cool, is currently loving everything kit. Celebrity dresser and trendsetter extraordinaire, Ms Zoe has been in the habit of featuring some of our much loved kit products in her daily blog ‘The Zoe Report’ on everything hip, hot and happening. You could say she’s having a kit moment… From beautiful brows to sweet skin treats, when Rachel Zoe speaks, we listen.

Rachel has gone ‘bananas’ over Too Faced Brow Envy kit. Well groomed eyebrows, a sadly overlooked part in most morning mirror routines, can take your look from oh-so-ordinary (yawn) to seriously Vogue-Worthy cool within minutes, and Too Faced Brow Envy kit is the perfect companion to get you there. Featuring brow shaping stencils, precision tweezers, two shadow shades (for flawless blending) and a brow conditioning wax, this has-it-all brow kit is the failsafe way to create those close-up ready full brows that you can seriously die for.

Rachel also loves the Mario Badescu range of products for the most ah-mazing skin ever. Her approval even comes with a warning: ‘beauty aficionados beware: once you try one Mario Badescu product, you will quickly become obsessed’. The favourites on her go-to list are the Drying Lotion and Flower and Tonic Mask. So go try them now. Rachel Zoe dares you!

DRUM ROLL PLEASE..

 

After many a-wasted-work-hour spent around the water cooler analyzing the dazzling looks from the 2010 award season, we have finally decided on our Oscar-winner for stand out sartorial splendor. And so… drum roll please...

The Oscar goes to Jennfier Lopez for her classic yet daring turn at the 2010 Academy Awards. The actress/singer formerly known as J-Lo hit all the right trends on this night-of-nights with her steely-blue eye, nude lip and ever-so-slightly disheveled up-do. Recreate this new blue-grey smoky eye with Korres Sunflower Oil Shimmering Shadow in 54S dark grey shimmer or Too Faced eye-shadow duo in Ohh and Ahh for base. Follow with JK Jemma Kidd Iconic Eyes Pencil Liner in Screen Siren to add definition (don't forget to line your bottom lashes!). To get her lip look try the Lipstick Queen lipstick in Nude Sinner with the Lipstick Queen Exact Match Lip Liner in Nude.

This seasoned award night stunner topped off her look with some beyond-beautiful ear bling, to take her look from girl-next-door pretty to award-worthy glamour. Perfect!

GOLD MEDAL FAVOURITE

 

Yes, we are in a Winter Wonderland here at Kit HQ. Knee deep, and snowed under with the excitement that is snow-boarding, speed-skating, ski-jumping … the 2010 Vancouver (or the ‘Couver’ to the locals) Winter Olympics. Although the Aussie contingent is currently sitting on one lonely silver medal (congratulations Dale Begg-Smith!), we can’t help but get caught up in the avalanche of Olympic-sized-excitement that comes along with these much-cooler games (no pun intended).
 
So in the spirit of the Olympic season, despite the steamy summer weather outside, we’ve decided to kit ourselves out with some sure fire winter winners, and gold medal-favourite finds, to embrace the snow-bunny-beauty within, Winter Olympics style. With these picks we’re sure we will be sweeping the medal tally in spectactular style!

Exposed! Secrets of the stars from Jerrod Blandino

 

The buzz here at kit at the moment is all about the brand new, deliciously exciting Too Faced products about to launch onto our shelves. Straight out of tinsel town , we caught up with the Too Faced founder and makeup artist to the stars, Jerrod Blandino. Read the complete interview below as Jerrod gives us the low-down on why Too Faced has Hollywood starlets in a frenzy..

Q. Tell us about your latest Too Faced Collection. What's your new favorite and how do we wear it best?
A. My spring collection is all about Chocolate & Pearls! Decadence meets indulgence! The "Chocolate Soleil Bronzer" is made using real cocoa powder! It looks too deep and rich but totally real!

Q. Your product names are always fun and often hilarious. How do you come up with these?
A. That's one of my favorite parts! The names can come from anywhere. I'm always inspired by my friends, clients, pop culture, fashion, music, and of course 80's TV!

Q. What are the latest runway trends in beauty and how do you translate these for the every day Too Faced customer?
A. There's definitely a resurge of pop color, very 80's punk meets hip hop. I love what Marc Jacobs did with his Steven Spouse collection for Louis Vuitton. It's so retro and modern at the same time. I am inspired by the colors, silhouette, and accessories from so many different fashion houses. You will see those inspirations show up in the newest Too Faced collections with the vibrant new colors, futuristic textures and innovative products we're launching.

Q. Who is your fave celebrity that you've worked with and why?
A. Madonna, she just doesn't take shit! She never compromises and she has an amazing ability to interpret trends and make them work for her. She can also wear makeup like nobody I know!  It NEVER overwhelms her, she's always Madonna.

Q. Which celebrities do you know of that are Too Faced addicts?
A. We are fortunate enough to count so many of Hollywood's A-Listers and Music Legends as our friends. A few are Gwen Stefani, Britney Spears, Blake Lively, Fergie, Julia Roberts, Katy Perry (who modeled for us a few season's back) Miley Sirus and Kristen Hayden Panettiere

Q. If you had to choose one Too Faced product to take to a desert island, what would it be and why?
A. Lash Injection Mascara! It's so coveted and has so many addicted fans I could surely trade it for a little boat to get home. And if not, it's water-proof tubes could help me glam up the natives!

Q. What can we look forward to in terms of new products from Too Faced?
A. More innovation mixed with Hollywood glamour! Using tomorrow’s technology today to create products that offer amazing results that are sure to make my clients look better than all their friends!

Q. Which songs are on rotation on your iPod at the moment?
A. The Twilight soundtrack seems to have me entranced! That mixed with a little Kanye, Depeche Mode, and some feverish Britney remixes given to me by the blonde beauty herself!

Q. Apart from Too Faced of course, what are your top five fave products at kit?
A. I love all of the skin care! I'm an addict! And the whole vibe of KIT, it's so slick and cool!

Q. Do you shop online? What are your favorite online boutiques?
A. Absolutely! I love yoox.com has a great selection of Lanvin Jeans, laudree.com sells the world's best macaroons, and Barneys NY's website always has something tres fab!

Q. What fashion trends are on your radar right now? 
A. There's two things that I'm being drawn to right now. First is this goth-vampire inspired vibe Chanel is throwing down that I love and the graffiti, day-glo 80's punk thing happening. It's very street; skater kids meets couture!

Q. Off-the-clock, what's you favorite city to travel to and why?
A. Paris, it has to be the city of lights. I just get lost in my thoughts there. It's so beautiful and inspiring, not to mention romantic!

Q. What do you do to unwind?
A. Shop

Q. What's your biggest indulgence?
A. Fashion and jewelry! Don't even get me started!

Q. If you could invite any five people for dinner who would they be?
A. Jesus Christ, Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, Harvey Milk & the guy who invented Botox! 

Check out the fabulous Too Faced products as well as their ultra-cool new colours which we are ever so excited about here..

Top Tips from Too Faced Founder Jerrod: Get the Decade of Glamour look

 

As one of the founder’s of hot Hollywood brand Too Faced, Jerrod Blandino knows celebrity and glamour better than anyone. Here he gives us his top tips to recreate this Decade of Glamour look, in celebration of Too Faced’s 10th birthday this year… 

Jerrod says “To get this classic Glam look with an emphasis on pinks, keep the palette clean and fresh with shades of pink and brown. This look is a twist on the classic Hollywood Starlet, but with a modern and playful twist that works on every skin tone and for all ages.” 

For a base, Jerrod says: “Start with a fresh and flawless face created using Magic Wand Foundation and Absolutely Invisible Translucent Powder” This will create the perfect canvas for your colour.  

Next, Jerrod recommends a new take on the smouldering eye look: “Eyes are smokey but instead of the traditional grays and blacks use Single Eye Shadows in Mess in a Dress and Dirt Bag. Apply the Mess in a Dress on lid up into the crease. Next apply the Dirt Bag in the crease covering the outer third of the lid and down onto the lower lash line. Highlight brow bone with Duo Eye Shadow in Boy Toy. Finally, line your lids using Bronzed Bombshell Foiled Metallic Eye Liner on both upper and lower lash lines and smudge with a cotton swab. Eyebrows are defined and arched using the Brow Envy Kit.” 

For the final touches on your Decade of Glamour look, Jerrod suggests:  “Lips are juicy and wet with Status Gloss in Trust Fund Baby over Lip Of Luxury Lipstick in Cupcake. Cheeks have a pop of Ooh La Rouge Duo in Pink Provocateur. Apply three coats of Lash Injection in Hot Chocolate to finish off the look.” 

Join in the celebrations for Too Faced’s 10th Birthday and wear this delicious Decade of Glamour look, and don’t forget to ask yourself - Why be pretty when you can be gorgeous?

Up Close and Personal with Too Faced Founder Jerrod Blandino

 

We all know we love Too Faced, and can't get enough of its sassy vibe and glam cosmetics, but if you haven't heard about Jerrod Blandino, one half of the master-mind team behind Too Faced, we thought as Too Faced celebrates its 10th birthday in kit stores throughout Australia, its the perfect time to get to know a little bit more about him. We put Jerrod in the hot seat and asked him about his favourite things; this is what he had to say...

"My favourite restaurant is The Ivy on Robertson. Their lobster risotto makes my eyes curl up in my head! And I love drinking Veuve Clicquot champagne. 

I love spending time at the Hotel Bel Air, it's so vintage Hollywood Glam and when I'm travelling, I can't go past the Ritz in Paris, which is my favourite city in the world in fall!

The best place to live is Beverly Hills, and I love spending time at the Beverly Hills Hotel's Polo Lounge. As far as travelling goes, Maui in Hawaii is the ultimate.  

My most adored label is Chanel men & Gaultier men - I'm a mix of classic luxury with a rebellious edge. I love it! My Balenciaga military overcoat is my must-have item of clothing. It's classic and modern and fabulously accessorised with my iphone, and my 9 carat flawless Chopard diamond ring, given to me by my true love and business partner Jeremy. 

I love my baby boy, my darling chihuahua London, and 80's pop and today's fabulous dance music are my music of choice!

For grooming, I use Ojon for hair and always splash the cologne L'Artisan Parfumeur Tea for Two. I got it in Paris and have been in love ever since. As for skincare, I'm addicted to Creme De La Mer, all the hype is true!

My greatest extravagance is flying by private jet and my favourite sport is shopping. My ultimate hobby is playing with makeup, and the best book I've read is 'Blonde at the Roots'. However, as far as magazines go, I can't go past 'Paper Magazine'- it's edgy with a couture flair. I also love spending time on the website laduree.com. I'm obsessed with their macaroons!

I love 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'- I cry every time! But at night-time the best thing to do is to sit our private beach after midnight. It's as close to heaven as you can get.

I am passionate about fighting skin cancer and finding a cure. My sister Lisa is fighting 4th stage melanoma. The perfect faux tan (and therefore my favourite Too Faced product) is our Sun Bunny Caribbean Bronzer, even the palest of skintones look bronzed and beautiful without ever looking orange!

My favourite celebrity is Madonna - she's just amazing in every way a person can be, and my most loved person is my partner Jeremy."

THURSDAY, 15 NOVEMBER 2007

get the ellery look:

 

The latest look that hit the catwalk last week at Kym Ellery’s Autumn/Winter collection launch was all about gold and neutral hues.

Makeup artist Linda Jefferyes for Kit Cosmetics worked with kit makeup artists Poppy, Paula and Lara to create a look all about the sheen of fresh, clean skin – the perfect canvas for neutral, beige and gold tones. A wash of gold enhanced the fullness of each model's lips and added a touch of lustre. 

To complement their polished makeup look (created using products from the Kit Cosmetics, Too Faced and Jemma Kidd lines) the models were further polished in the limited edition Havaianas for Kit Cosmetics Nail Polish in Blush, the ultimate baby pink.

Ellery’s collection, titled L’ile Noire (meaning Black Island) is a magical and mysterious mix between peach and love, ala 70’s style and the sexy modern structured silhouette. Her insipiration coming from Black Magic, the sweet sounds of The Doors, American Indian colours, the musical HAIR and a women’s connection to nature.

The launch proved the talent of up-and-coming designer Kym Ellery (see for yourselves below) so make sure you keep your eye on this one…

Love your work Kym!

We have been getting some major press about the launch of our website, (thank you to our magazine and online friends) but we were super chuffed to see this little snippet in the latest edition of OK! magazine. We especially love being mentioned alongside stunner Rachel Bilson and having a top excuse for reading OK! at our desks...
