This past weekend I was honored to attend a makeup class taught by international makeup artist Juliana Mayfield. She has been in this business for over 10 years, has applied makeup to many stars, and is a pro at teaching makeup techniques as well! The class I was in is a Hooked Look class dedicated strictly to Mary Kay consultants and she only used our products. It was so informative! We had over three hours of intensive training. And we got to try out the techniques we learned while she went around the room making sure we got it right. I wanted to share a couple of tips I was taught.
Warm, Cool, Neutral?
A fun tip I learned is how to tell if your skin is warm, cool, or neutral. Knowing this information comes in handy because you then can best know which colors look best on you for fashion and makeup. You flip your wrist over and look at the big vein that goes down the middle. If the vein looks blue, you have a cool tone. If your vein is green, you have a warm tone. If it’s neither or in between, you have a neutral tone.
Where to cut eye lashes
If you buy some eye lashes and they’re too long because you have a smaller eye, cut the lashes from the inside. Lashes usually clad with some type of design and those are on the outside of the lash. If you cut it from the outside, you loose the design.
Although this particular class was just for Mary Kay consultants, she also teaches other classes as well. And can be hired to do makeup as well. I recommend checking out her videos on social media!

You guys….I am sooooo excited about this new makeup line with Mary Kay Cosmetics. It JUST came out and I can’t wait to share it with everyone. It is called Chromafusion and it is a GAME CHANGER in the makeup industry. As a director with Mary Kay, I get new products early so I have now been using these products for a couple of weeks and I see a HUGE difference. The line consists of eye shadows, blushes, highlighters, and contours.
Here are some facts:
- 12 hour wear
- High-impact color payoff
- Pigment-rich colors in matte and shimmer shades
- Curated by top makeup artists
- Dermatologist tested
- Clinically tested for skin irritancy and allergy
- Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers
These products are powered by Mary Kay Chromafusion Matrix Technology. It is a hybrid technique that specially wraps finely-milled, premium pigments to amplify color like never before. The enhanced pigments are then fused into a lightweight powder to create a smooth and flexible matrix.
There is also a new Pro Pallette that Mary Kay introduced which is fully customizable and magnetic to keep all your colors in place. You can arrange your makeup any way you would like and it holds all of the makeup from this line and former line plus foundations and bronzers.
I love how highly pigmented the colors are. It does not take much to make the color pop on your skin. That means that you get a bright look and also that your products will last longer because you don’t need as much. It’s also amazing that it last 12 hours and I know that for myself because often times I do my makeup early in the morning and am running around all day, forgetting to reapply my makeup. But then once I catch myself in the mirror between meetings or a night event, I realize I don’t need to do anything but my makeup still looks like it did in the morning! The variety of colors is also amazing for me. I love matching my makeup with my clothes for the day so no matter if I’m wearing blue, green, gold, etc. I can match my makeup with my outfit. The highlighting and contour colors are great too. They have shades for every skin tone no matter how light or dark and I appreciate them thinking of that. My mother, also a Mary Kay director, said to me the other day that when you highlight and contour it’s like the difference between a blurry picture and a focused one. Those steps help to define your face and bone structure which make for a cleaner look.
Pro Palette: $25
Eye Shadow: $8
