This Cinderella look  is a fun and special project we did for the new Beautifully Disney Cosmetics that just recently came out.  We used cosmetics from their new eye shadow palette and we also added a few of our own colors and finishing touches to enhance this look.  Hair and makeup by Ana Rivera and Lauren Pudwill for Beaute Speciale.

Some behind the scenes photos from our Beautifully Disney Cosmetics photo shoot.  Here is our inspiration board.

– summer trends 2012 –

Beaute Speciale Artist, Rosie Torres, saw this look on the runway and was inspired by this fresh faced, nude lip look.  It has a touch of smokey eye, but it’s not too dark so you can wear this as a daytime look as well.  Eyeliner in the water line and a few coats of mascara give this look some sex appeal.  We love it!


Shades of blue is summer 2012’s fresh new way to accentuate your eyes.  Light and airy, or dark and dramatic, this look is easy to customize, and can compliment all complexions.  Beaute Speciale artist, Laine Smart, created this look to share with us.


One of our favorite celebrities at the moment is Emma Stone. She always looks elegant and classy no matter what hair color she is sporting at the moment.  One of the things we like about her is that even though she has a full face of makeup, she never looks like she has too much on and it always look fresh and clean.  She can pull off any colored makeup, effortlessly. This look was done by Amanda Neuhardt from Beaute Speciale and she is focusing on the coral colored lipstick.  There are many shades of corals and everyone can look good in coral if and when you find the right shade. It is a daring color but it’s a great color to wear for the summer.  We dare you to find a shade of coral you like and wear with confidence!


Here’s another summer look from Amanda Neuhardt.  We especially love this summer, bronzy look because it can be worn day or night. Bronzy makeup is a very “safe” way to wear shimmery colors and helps to give the skin a healthy, youthful appearance without making the makeup look heavy or over done. This look makes the skin look fresh glowy and youthful and it’s appropriate for any age and for any occasion. This look will make a statement at any occasion and others are sure to take notice of this fresh look.


This face chart was create by Amanda Neuhardt from Beaute Speciale. In this look she is showing you how just a little color on the lips and some dramatic eye liner can be an easy enough and quick to apply for a sultry summer night out. This is a very sexy look but at the same time not too over dramatic.  We have noticed that a lot of our brides lately are getting away from the clean natural look and going more for this style and look for their wedding day. We couldn’t agree more, we are loving this look as well!


Another summer inspirational look for you!  This look was created by Jessica Torres from Beaute Speciale.  Her look was inspired but singer / actress Brandy.  Jessica shows us how this smokey eye never goes out of style no matter what the season is.  You can give this look a fresh appeal by adding a bit of color to make it more vibrant and to make it pop, especially during these long summer nights when you want to dress up and hit the town.  Be daring and add any vibrant color of your choice to this smokey look.  Greens are also great smoked out as well as plums or the blue you see in this look.  We dare to try it and be daring this summer, everyone looks fab with a smokey eye!


This summer look was create by Cindy Vasquez from Beaute Speciale. Her inspiration for this look was seen a lot on the red carpet this season. A lot of celebrities are not only using the gold, bronzey looks that we often see during this season but a lot of the new trends right are now are also making a statement by incorporating some silver in the makeup.  This makes it less warm looking but at the same time giving it more of a sex appeal rather then having the traditional  fresh glow summer time look that we often long for this time of year. All we can say is we love it!

A beautiful fresh summer look with glowy skin and orangy nude colored lips. Lots of copper, bronze and gold tone color on the cheeks and eyes with a strong brow and lots of lush lashes.  This look was created by Ami Pearsall for Beaute Speciale.

Here’s the premise for the look:

  1. Nude/Dewy skin
  2. Brushed up brows
  3. Coral/Pink coloring
  4. No liner

Spring Face Chart #7 by Jackie Morton

This face chart was done by Jackie Morton. It was inspired by the new Prada Spring campaign.  Orange is the color of the moment and in this look they used minimal color everywhere else and focused on the lips to make a statement. We are completely in love with the new orange looks this season and we recommend everyone try a little orange somewhere, whether it be on lips, cheeks, eyeliner eye shadow and nails. The trick is to use the color sparingly so it looks fresh and clean.

This is a clean fresh face look with a hint of a color on the lips and strong lashes and strong brows.  This is an amazing look and we think lots of ladies out there will be wearing it.  It’s also a very versatile look that you can wear it to the office or out on a night on the town as well!

Spring Face Chart #3 by Rosie Torres

Just 10 steps away from this amazing look!

To create this soft beautiful look for spring we start with the eyes first.

Step 1.  Use a base for the eye shadow, which is Painterly from MAC.  Use a flat concealer brush to apply from the top of the lid to the brow.

Step 2.  Use a soft wash of color on the lid.  I used seedy-pearl as an all over wash and then pack it on the lid for more intensity.  I also use this color in the inner part of the eye to create pop and underneath the eye to continue the soft look.

Step 3.  Use Sketch on the crease of the eye to define the eye and show your eye shape.

Step 4.  I use Brule as a highlight on the brow bone to brighten and smooth the crease of the highlight together.

Step 5.  Line the eyes with Shu Uemura with their black gel liner on top and wing it out for some fun.  Line the inner rim with a black eye liner.

Step 6.  Use a ton of mascara to make those lashes look amazing.

Step 7.  Define your brow with an eyeshadow that matches your hair color and if you have dark hair go with a brown color.

Step 8.  Apply concealer and foundation.

Step 9.  Apply blush.  For this look Iused Prism.

Step 10.  I used Whirl lip liner from MAC and Snob lipstick, no gloss.

Inspiration for this look came from here:



Spring Face Chart #2 by Alexie Fonseca

Another look we really like right now is the use of lots of bright colors as eyeliners and keeping the face to a minimum or having a bright lip in combination with a pretty bright manicure.  If you keep the focus on one particular area and emphasize one thing at a time, as dramatic as they are doing on the runway, it looks fresh and just in time for spring. Anyone who is brave enough can sport this look out on the town or during the daytime this season.

This was Alexie Fonseca’s spring inspiration from one of the recent spring fashion shows.  We love the electric blue eyeliner!

MAC Nicki’s Lipstick

-Bright Yellow Pink

MAC Petrol Blue Eyeliner

-Deep Navy with Pearl

DuWop Doubleglow 7 – Cream Bronzer

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara, Very Black

My spring look combined:  electric blue angled liner with hot pink lipstick!



Celebrity Inspiration Look by Jessica Torres

We have been keeping up with some of the new spring trends on the runway in fashion magazines and on the red carpet.  We’re really loving some of these looks we’ve seen. The hair and makeup stylists and artists at Beaute Speciale have recreated some of these looks that have inspired them and wanted to share them with the rest of you. First look was recreated by Jessica Torres; Jessica  found this clean and classy inspiration look on what Angelina Jolie recently wore at this year’s 2012 Golden Globe Awards. She loved the bright  red lip that Angelina had and the beautiful sharp clean line of this retro liquid eyeliner that has never gone out of style but is very popular at the moment. This is a great look that anyone can pull at any event for almost every occasion; it is an Old Hollywood look that has made a comeback in a very strong way!
