VISEART introduces two new striking SS2018 Theory Palettes – Absinthe and Siren. Each new palette introduced to the Theory collection celebrates the beauty of individuality and strength in personality. The Absinthe palette, Theory Eye 06 offers up a spectrum of emeralds, with six all new transformative shades, three matte and three shimmery. While the Siren palette Theory Eye 07 features a range of terra-cotta tones, with three matte shades from fair and medium peach to deep terracotta, along with three new shimmery metallic shades. Each palette of 6 shades, all complimentary can be intermixed or worm alone, to meet each of your client’s style.

We got a chance to get up close and personal with these palettes and they are divine, the shadows are so rich, that when applied it feels like it almost melts into the skin. Pro Tip: prep eyelid with Viseart Seamless Eye Primer before applying shadow for extra staying power. Each of these palettes exhibits the thoughtfully hand-crafted quality we have come to expect from Viseart. Ingredients are all natural and organic and contains no parabens, gluten, petrochemicals, silicone or mineral oils. The compact style packaging folds into a working magnetized easel, which makes it the perfect kit essential for professional artists.

We are loving the newest additions to Urban Decay’s line-up, the Naked Petite Heat palette and the Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipgloss, both launching this March 2018. First up, the latest addition to their cult following Naked collection, the Naked Petite Heat. This palette features six all new matte shadow shades inspired by the popular Naked Heat, five matte shades for the lid, crease and liner and one demi-matte highlighting shade. Everything you need to create gorgeous looks for every client from soft to sultry.

The shadows are velvety to the touch and goes on smooth with a high blendable pigment payoff. We had a chance to play with this palette and it delivers on color and texture, one swipe and done. The shades are very earthy and features hues such as Hot Spell, a terra-cotta color, Strike, a rich reddish brown, Heist, a rich cayenne or Wild Thing, a burnt orange shade. Each shadow, perfect for all skin tones, can either be worn individually or paired up with other shadows for customized looks. Plus the petite palette size makes it a perfect fit for your professional makeup kit!

The next newest addition is the Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipgloss. Ultra-shiny, cushiony long-lasting gloss that glides on smoothly with a peppermint fresh feel. The non-tacky lip gloss contains both peppermint oil and vitamin E, which helps to hydrate and leave lips feeling nourished, and plumped. Your clients will have 20 glosses to choose from, from brights to soft neutrals, in four different finishes—metallic, holographic, cream and sheer cream.

We love the modern futuristic look of this gloss tube and the flexible applicator makes it easy to apply, delivering a generous amount of color in one swipe. A few shades we are obsessed with are Naked, a neutral pearly nude pink, Jawbreaker, a creamy purple and the holographic shades SPL and Snapped.

Naked Petite Heat, $29 will be available March 8, 2018  and Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipgloss, $20 available March 30, 2018. Both will be in stores and online at Sephora, Ulta Beauty

We are loving the latest must have kit essential from Viseart, the Seamless Eye Primer and Seamless Setting Powder. Both products were designed to ensure makeup longevity with comfort. First up the Seamless Eye Primer’s unique formula was not only designed to ensure eye shadow’s true color to shine through, but also prevent it from creasing. Both pigment-free and iron oxide-free, this primer will show eye makeup’s true color each time without any color changes. The lightweight liquidy primer goes on smooth and dries clear, creating a barrier on the eyelid, while evening out the skin’s texture for a smooth flawless eye shadow application every time. It’s perfect for all skin tones and sensitive eyes, as it contains no parabens, gluten, silicone or mineral oils.

This eye primer pairs really well with the new Seamless Setting Powder. This ultra-fine, colorless setting powder was created with a natural cellulose base, designed to not only help absorb excess oil, but also blur fine lines for a soft natural matte finish. The weightless formula is ideal for all skin tones and types and contains no parabens, gluten silicone or mineral oils. Additionally this HD powder will not create flashback which makes it a perfect addition for your pro kit.  Pro Tip: Use a synthetic hair brush like the Esum T43 brush to pat on the  Seamless Eye Primer along the lash line and upper eye area. Then immediately press on the Seamless Setting Powder, before apply the eye shadow color of your choice for a vibrant smudge proof finish.

Both the Seamless Eye Primer, $24 and Seamless Setting Powder, $35, are available exclusively online at #GoSeamless


We are in constant awe and inspired by the talented makeup artist, photographer and Pat McGrath ambassador, Ryan Burke. So when we saw this feature he did for them (This Makeup Transformation Is WILD — But Don’t You Dare Call It “Drag”), we had to share. His work truly unique, and to get a view into how he meticulously creates these pieces of art is fascinating. For those who were lucky to catch Ryan at The Artist Summit 2017, they got personal insight into his journey as an artist, and how he comes up with his creations. Check out the full featured video from them below and we hope you and your work is as inspired as we are by Ryan’s talent.  Don’t forget to also check out the piece from the Fall 2016 issue of On Makeup Magazine we did on Ryan, Inspired: Ryan Burke.
