Step 2: EYES

Use the Day Dream palette to create a subtle smokey eye.  We love the last three shadow shades in the palette for a perfect fall look. The fourth shade can be applied all over the lid, then you can use the fifth shade in the crease, and the sixth shade along and below the lash line.

Complete your eye look with your favorite mascara to define your eyes and complement your eye shadow.

Step 3: LIPS

Lastly, to complete your Fall look, a dark lip! Use the Priming Lipstick in the shade Bar Crawl for that perfect medium plum color. The built in primer will keep the color lasting all day long. The lipstick formula is also hydrating and moisturizing to prevent dry lips for the cooler season.

Women in Business Interview with Nicki Maron, Chief Marketing Officer of Blushington

Nicki Maron is the Chief Marketing Officer of Blushington Makeup & Beauty Lounge blushingtonn

Did you always know you wanted to work in the business industry? 

Not at all! I was a college soccer player who wore very little makeup. It was not until my time at Blushington, specifically my first makeup 101 class prior to coming onboard, that I learned the power of makeup and great products!

How did you get into the business industry with Blushington?

Blushington was founded by sister Stephi at the age of 21 with the help of my family. Since then, we have opened locations in California, New York and Texas. Prior to Blushington, I worked in the entertainment business and learned first-hand how to bring words from a script come alive in a movie. Image result for blushington

As Chief Marketing Officer, what is your favorite part of the job? 

The best part of my job is seeing how makeup can positively change someone’s life. From a teen with acne to a grown adult who doesn’t know how to apply eye liner- Blushington is the place where anyone can feel like a million bucks.

What are some pointers that you can share to fellow business women?

Follow your gut and know that you probably can’t do it all yourself which is why finding a great team is so valuable.

What is your go to beauty tip?

For that very natural look, I always fill in my brows and I usually put concealer on my eye lids. I buff it out with my beauty blender for that very minimal, no makeup look!

Women in Business Interview with Mai Tran, Founder & CEO of Mai Couture

Mai Tran is the Founder & CEO of Mai Couture

Have you always been interested in Business?MAI.png

Yes I grew up in a family with women in business.

What encouraged you to start your own business?

My parents came to America not knowing a single word of English and managed to own their own company within only a few years. This gave me the motivation and truly inspired me to start a business of my own.

What is your favorite part about being a woman in business?

I love connecting and supporting fellow women. Incredible things can happen when women support each other.

Were there any challenges you faced, and how did you overcome them?

Every challenge is a learning experience that made me stronger as an entrepreneur. It was very challenging at the beginning to get the formulation perfect. It took almost 2 years of R&D and several manufacturers to get the product to par. I believe if the product is not good enough for me, then it’s not good enough for anyone.

What are some goals you set for Mai Couture in the future?

My goal is to create a lifestyle brand for the modern woman. Finding and creating solutions for on-the-go.

What is your favorite beauty tip or trick?

I love to use blotting papers as a dry shampoo. It takes away the oil and gives hair volume at the root. Our 2-1 Blotting and Bronzing papers are my favorite as it gives next day hair extra sheen.

Women in Business Interview with Kristy Reed, Founder & Owner of Salon 74 LXXIV

What made you decide to start your own business?kristy-reed-salon-74

I became an empty nest and my best friend opened a blow dry bar in Idaho that was very successful. Even though I had dreamed of doing the same and put plans in to open one in a new community being built.  When the owner of the salon I worked at during my 20-30’s fell ill I offered to buy it. It was such a whirl wind transaction! I took over and had to completely re-brand and rebuild. And when I say rebuild I mean EVERYTHING! The salon, the team, the clientele and the brand itself. I renamed it and the rest is as they say history.

What are some things you have learned so far since opening your salon?

I have learned so much since I built this salon May of 2015. I have to put over 30 people’s needs before my own sometimes and listen to what they are saying to have continued success. I need to always remember what it was they were feeling when they came to me. This feeling of responsibility is enormous but so worth it when I see the smiles and hear the laughter in our salon. We are a happy family.

What are your favorite business aspects in the salon?

My favorite part of owning 74 is the people I work with! They are all so eclectic and amazing! Our bonds are great and we all truly enjoy being together! I have a “job” that allows me to give back daily.

Tips on balancing your life as a business woman, mom, and wife?

Tips? What tips? I was hoping you had some for me! I still have not mastered that balance yet… I am typically working until 10 pm with one eye on my phone screen and another on a TV show my husband and I are watching! Any time off I crack open a beer and plant myself in the kitchen for a good 3 hours cooking!
