Hi, Clare Maxfield here from the International Style Academy (Now Academy of Professional Image). Today’s workshop we are going to finish your face and we’re going to apply the lips and how you just a little bit of airbrushing when you are out at night.
Final step, I’m often asked, how do you get perfect lips?
Perfect lips is simple. Well I’ve just discovered, primer and it is wonderful to use… Look I’m not 20 anymore. So when I’m trying to put a lip gloss on, it’s always trying to creep off my face within 5-10 minutes after wearing it.
The eye and lip primer. Now I got this one brush I use because, can I tell you if you put too much on your lips, it does go everywhere. Now that was just, from the tiny bit on the end of my brush… Okay. This is good for 2 reasons. One, if you need to redefine you lips, you find your lips you know, one side is fuller than the other. Putting this on can make it a lot easy to balance them up
Also, if you find your lipstick and your… everything bleeds, this holds in in place. After you put on your lip primer, follow with a lip liner. I’ve used Tantalize. Now you have to put a little bit of primer to the outside of the lips, that slight lightening on the outside of the line, makes your lip look fuller.
Now if I leave my lip liner like this, as many people do, the minute I eat my lipstick and it does start wearing off, it won’t be there anymore.
So, I like to feather it in lightly. And let’s finish with lipstick. Today I’m wearing Betrayal. So now, lips was easy. Lip primer, lip liner and lipstick.
Some of you may look at yourself and me and think I’m just looking a bit dull. So I want to introduce you to my final toy. This is my concealer stack. I want to put a little more brightness around my eyes. (I use pink) Because there’s a little bit of blue, standing down there, the opposite to colour, to blue on the colour wheel is yellow… and that we are going to apply it here and… much better.
Having your concealer for the final layer as a powder, means you never going to get too much there. So I’ve just used wakeup, to wake my eyes up and then I’m going to add a little pink from the brighten just to the outside here. See how the difference on the right side brighter than the other?
Now, I know I’ve got different lighting in here, but just brighter in the eyes. It’s like mini face lift. This is great tool for those of you who tend to go out and get a little bit flushed, you just puff a little bit of green powder on your face and tone it down.
Anyway, Clare Maxfield here from the International Style Academy (Now Academy of Professional Image). I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s session.

Earlier this year I started creating new videos for my make-up line and creating new products, have a listen and watch as I describe the process.
Hi, Clare Maxfield here from Maxfield Cosmetics. And I’m going to share with you a brand new, hot out of the kitchen, almost literally product.
You can now customise your own lipstick to exactly the shade you want. So keep watching, I’m going to tell you how.
Customised lipsticks. Now in the past I’ve got some beautiful colour in the range and you would think having my own range, I’d be able to get exactly the colour that I wanted but you know, I still couldn’t because I would find there would be a beautiful colour like this- Intriguing, and those who know it, no intrigues out there.
Let me start by popping a little liner on and I love to use “Pretty”. What I find when I put this on, great colour but it’s just lacking a little bit of oomph. So what I used to do, and many of you will know the lip dust …is add a little bit of lip dust to lift the colour. But here is what the problem was, I had to carry one of these with me and if any of you know the problems I’ve had with the containers of late you would know they’d just, you know…the lid comes off of your bag, it goes everywhere. Then I came up with a great idea.
Why don’t I pop the 2 together in a pre-made pot? So bear with me while I take this (lipstick) off and I will be back in a moment.
Okay, so here I am back again with that colour off and I’ll just pop my Pretty (lipliner) on and grab my brand new pot of Clare’s own colour.
Now I’m calling it Clare’s Own colour because I’m not poing to name any of these because if you want to order them, you’re poing to be ordering exactly the colour you want. Using the lipstick base you want and using, using the dust colour you want, and it will be Your Own colour.
So here is one. This is one I made earlier. Literally… so I’m just using a brush…it’s very firm.
Can I tell you, when you get one for the first time, work it out. Okay, I’m getting a little hole in the bottom, now it’s time to come together. So this is a mix of Intriguing and Cameo which exactly the colour I like and… do you know how to do this in reverse with a bit of shimmer. I’m loving the color. So, you can now mix up your own.
So, let me tell you, how it started – here is a pot. This is the pot that started it all, well actually there’s another one over here. And I had an email from someone. She said, I love Code Red but always have to add Copper Sheen to make it work.
So what did I do? I put the two together for her in this pot. And this is now Terry’s colour. So if you have anything you want to make up or if you like me and I use to always wear, in my handbag, I always had a pot here of Peach Gem. You know what? I’ve made up my own lipstick of Peach Gem. So this is Peach Gem as a lip.
So here we have them now, we have personalized pots of colour. And do you know something else you can do with them?
You can get two together, and you can keep them in your handbag like this. So you have all of your pots of colour in one place. It is customized colour.
Let me know, come and start ordering because wouldn’t it be great to have lots and lots and lots of colours and exactly the shade that you want.
If you want to know more, go on my website www.MaxfieldCosmetics.com.au and you’ll see there’ll be an availability to order the custom colour .
To order you’ll have to order it via choosing your lip base and then in the notes, add the mineral dust colour you’d like to add to it or go to the website see where the nearest distributor is to you and give them a call and get them to show you how it all goes together.
So, custom colours, custom pots. You’ll find it’s going to be so much fun making your own lipstick.
