The Biggest Beauty Trends for 2018!

Beauty Trends 2018

 

Yup you read that right, got your biggest beauty trends for 2018 right here for ya! I’m excited about the look for spring, super pretty. Spring colors and fall colors are the best aren’t they! These were the most popular beauty looks seen on the runways for Spring/Summer 2018.

 

First up is a look I’ve been wearing a lot lately, smudgy brown eyeliner. My fav product to achieve this look- MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy. Apply it along your lash line and smudge it out with a q-tip or pencil brush.

Next up we have your glowy highlight. Highlight and contour has been around for a while now, but the difference this year is there’s less emphasis on contour and the highlight is used not just on cheeks but on eyes as well. The resulting look is an overall glow. So pretty. Loving the Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold for this.

Finally, and this is the most fun trend of the season, pastel eyeshadows are making a comeback! Pastels are so pretty and fun to work with and the NYX Love you So Mochi palette has some pretty great colors to pull this look off. Not to mention how creamy they feel. Love.

Going Back to Basics with our Makeup in the New Year

Back to basics Makeup

 

So you guy all know that I’ve been a professional makeup artist for 12 years now and have been doing makeup tutorials on youtube for about half that time. I’ve had a blast creating intricate looks and combining different colors and glitters and all that fun stuff. But, I had an interesting conversation with some of my cousins a little while back. My cousin Mona said she loves to see all the looks that I come up with, but it doesn’t feel like something she could realistically recreate.

 

That hadn’t even occurred to me to be honest with you guys. She suggested I do some looks that use just 1 or 2 shadows, something simple she can do at home. My cousin Monique chimed in and said that sounds like a good idea but probably not very exciting for me to do. Which is true, but when I think about how all I really want to do is to help people feel beautiful on the inside and out, I thought maybe I should consider Mona’s suggestion.

 

That combined with the fact that I’ve had a bunch of requests for simpler topics over the past while gave me an idea (shout out to Violet!). Starting in the new year I am going to do a series of Back to Basics makeup videos. It’ll be like attending a Makeup 101 class and I am super excited to help you guys!! I’ve already been collecting video ideas, if you guys have any requests as to what you would like to see/learn, please let me know in the comments.

 

Looking forward to helping you guys out even more!!

GenBeauty Vlog Toronto 2017

Deepa Berar GenBeauty Vlog Toronto 2017

 

Did anyone else get a chance to make it out to GenBeauty in Toronto last weekend? It was seriously so much fun and a whole weekend event. I know you guys have been asking for more vlogs from me, so I am trying my best! Still getting used to the idea of filming myself in public, but I figured an event like GenBeauty would be the perfect place to get used to vlogging as we were surrounded by other creators doing the exact same thing!

 

GenBeauty Toronto 2017 Creator Day

 

We started off the weekend at Creator Day which took place at the Corus Media building by the waterfront in Toronto. Such a cool spot! The walkway by the water is so picturesque and the building is huge and has this giant slide right in the middle.

 

Deepa Berar AlbInWonderland

 

I got to meet a bunch of creators that I’ve connected with on Instagram and some I’ve seen at other events. There was a donut wall (yes people were eating the donuts), brand demo’s and panels to learn from. The highlight was definitely listening to Michelle Phan speak!

 

After all the fun filled day was the cocktail party. This year it took place on the rooftop of the Thompson hotel. You might remember the Thomspon from the episode of the Kardashians I was on. I love that spot!

 

GenBeauty Toronto 2017 Urban Decay Naked Heat

 

The party was so much fun and the goodie bag was RIDICULOUS! So many fun things to try out for you guys. Oh! I almost forgot to mention one of the best gifts we received from the weekend was the new Urban Decay Naked Heat palette! Literally was waiting under our chairs after we returned from lunch. Guys, it’s seriously sooo beautiful. I will def do a tutorial for you.

 

GenBeauty Toronto 2017

 

The next day was GenBeauty at the Metro Convention Centre downtown. So. Many. Brands. It was like a dream. We got to meet the PR reps for each brand and preview some of the new products coming out. Guys! You are gonna die when you see the new Benefit concealers. You can use it over your concealer and it makes everything look flawless. I’ll share more, promise!

 

Deepa Berar MAC GenBeauty Toronto 2017

 

Fav booth of the event? MAC of course! It was so exciting to see MAC at GenBeauty. You all know I worked with them for 6 years, and trust me leaving was not an easy decision. But everyone has to move on at some point. Anyways, it was just good to see them embracing the whole social media world. I even saw my friend Tamara and my ex assistant manager Michael Ho who is incidentally a trainer now!

 

So onto the vlog, oh trying my best to step up my editing game so please let me know what you think!

Best of the Billboard 2016 beauty looks

Monday, May 23, 2016 0 0

billboard 2016 beauty

 

Did you guys catch the Billboard music awards last night? Ok I was kinda bad and only tuned in for like a minute to see our girl Priyanka Chopra announce an award, what can I say, life happens and I was at a birthday party for my cousin’s son. Also Superbad was on and I can never pass up an opportunity to watch. One of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen, I swear I’m dying ever time!!

 

Anyways, all of that didn’t stop me from tuning in to watch the celebs kill it on the red carpet! Loved a bunch of the looks last night, mostly the smokey eyed ones, seems to be very on trend at the moment. As usual, I have your best Billboard 2016 beauty looks :)

 

billboard 2016 britney spears

 

First off we’re gonna talk about the queen of course, all hail Britney. I know some of you might not agree with me on this one, but I LOVED the throwback lip. Very Laguna beach circa 2005, you remember, back when everyone was wearing Myth lipstick from MAC? What can I say, I’m a sucker for a good throwback!

 

Britney’s MUA used Surratt Moderniste lip pencil and YSL Rouge Pur Couture in #10 on her lips.

 

billboard 2016 demi lovato

 

On to one of my fav celebs, Demi Lovato. Love, love, love her message about self confidence and loving yourself as you are right now. So refreshing. Also LOVE her smokey eye/nude lip combo, swear this look is so big right now. So rocker glam.

 

You can use YSL’s Kajal in black, smudged around the eyes to recreate the look.

 

billboard 2016 lucy hale

 

Pretty Little Liar’s Lucy Hale rocked the look as well, although her lip was a little less nude and a little more natural, still looked amazing. Have you ever noticed how nice kajal rimmed eyes looks on people with that darker ring around their iris? Just makes their eyes pop even more.

 

Use MAC shadow palette in Purple to recreate Lucy’s soft smokey eye.

 

billboard 2016 rihanna

 

Not a huge fan of Rihanna’s hair at the awards show, but her makeup was on point. Really though, she has some of the most gorgeous eyes I’ve ever seen that she can pull off pretty much any look.

 

Use a soft fluffy brush like MAC #217 and NARS Albatross to recreate that gorgeous inner eye highlight Rihanna has. While you’re at it, add some to the top of your cheekbones to brighten.

 

billboard 2016 gwen stefani

 

Ok I had to add this last one, not because of the actual makeup, but because of the message. Gwen Stefani wore a totally different look than she usually does. Gone was the signature cat eye liner and red lip, instead she had very bronzed skin, bronze eyes and a nude lip. So glad she is experimenting. We can all fall into patterns of loving a certain look (myself included) but it’s fun to experiment and play! It keeps life fun and fresh and is a great message for yourself internally because it detaches you from correlating self esteem with looking a certain way. Makeup is meant to be fun, it’s not meant to mask the world from seeing the true you.
