Coverage! Theresa Longo attends Luminato 2013 … Opening Weekend in Toronto

By Concerts, Event Coverage, Fashion, Make-Up, Model Stuff, Social Media, Theresa Longo, TorontoNo Comments

Friday at the Hub  saw Serena Ryder and K-OS play to a packed David Pecault Square as Luminato 2013 kicked off opening night. I proudly represented L’Oreal Professonnel during opening weekend at Luminato. Guests were treated to hair makeovers from L’Oreal Professonnel Stylists. Products for purchase, samples and giveaways meant attendees took home a lot of hair care goodies. The opening night party was sponsored by Yves St Laurent.

Do you have a hair-care question you want to ask a L’Oreal Pro?

Saturday at the Hub was gorgeous! We enjoyed sunshine and concerts all day long. My favorite performer from Saturday was Sarah Harmer.

Here’s HOW TO GET THE LOOK:

Always start with a fresh face! We began by washing my face and hair in preparation for makeup application.
Stefania applied a primer with clean hands to begin the look. The primer is called Pro Professional from Benefit.
Concealer is applied. Concealer is Makeup Forever.
Next is eyebrows. Eyebrows frame your face. Brow is Chanel.
Primer goes on the eyelid, and then we start with the shadows.

Stefania-Serna-Makeup
After the eyes, Stefania uses Foundation and finishes with a powder to set the makeup.
She uses light pink lips and noted that it is considered a very sexy look to have a dark, smoky eye and nude lips.
After my hair dried Stefania used a straightening iron to make soft waves throughout my hair.

Everyone loved our looks. Fabulous!

Get Glowing Summer Skin Now!

By Advice, Beauty Secrets, Beauty Tips, How-To, Inspiration, International, Make-Up, Model Stuff, Modeling Tips, Social Media, Theresa LongoNo Comments

Summer is here! One of the greatest feelings is being fresh faced and enjoying outdoor activities in the sunshine!
Here are my best tips for Glowing Summer Skin:

1. ALWAYS wear spf 60 on your face, hands, neck and chest. This prevents aging and wrinkles where it matters most.

2. After every application of sunscreen or oil, –  exfoliate after cleansing. Lotions and sticky sunscreens wreck havoc on your pores. Always scrub breakout prone areas with an exfoliating scrub. Vichy or Proactiv has gentle facewashes which can be used multiple times daily.

3. Flaxseed – Ground Flaxseed added to cereal or a shake in the morning will make your skin glow.

4. Drink Water! Drink extra water in the summer time. Aim for 3-4 litres a day at least!

5. Resist the urge to touch your skin. Ever. Keep your fingers away from face, chest, back, always!

6. Use C&E peptides

7. Take extra care of yourself! If you sweat, hit the shower ASAP!

8. Watch what you eat. Diet is important. Cut sweets, meat, and dairy to ensure your skin is perfect.
See More info Here.

9. Relax your face! Practice relaxing your face more often. This will minimize frown lines. I have done this for years.

10. Remove makeup every single night before bed! Washing your face before bed should be a bedtime ritual!

Remember: Sometimes skin does what it wants! No one ever has “perfect skin” 🙂 These tips are meant to help you better manage the beautiful skin you’re in!

WMC Fall Fashion Week 2013: Wrap Up | Theresa Longo Attends!

By Appearances, Event Coverage, Fashion, Make-Up, Model Stuff, Red Carpet, Runway, Social Media, Theresa Longo, TorontoNo Comments

Fashion Week has already passed!  I am including my favorite personal photos from inside the fashion environment. For the full runway recap, visit WMCFW online here. “

Most of the Fall 2013 Collection from MATIS by Lucian Matis was printed head to toe with feminine florals and grayscale graphics. The silhouette of choice was the dress, both long and short, and each look was topped off with a delicate piece of jewelry. The designer added in some of Fall’s key colors with black, navy, and a deep, dark red”. Another exciting show was Laura Siegel. I could really see myself wearing her designs. For Siegel, Fall is undled up in shades of rust, charcoal, and ivory prevailed.  Soft fabrics made the whole collection fall “cozy”.  The designer included handcrafted beaded jewelry to accent the collection. Here are the rest of my photos from World MasterCard Fall Fashion Week 2013 – enjoy!

World Mastercard Fashion Week is well underway at David Pecaut Square in the heart of downtown Toronto and I bring you coverage from the past couple days alongside Canada’s most coveted Catwalk. Designer Christopher Bates hosted his runway show in a sharp tuxedo. Ashtiani designer Golnaz Ashtiani continued the trend of mixing fabrics, combining traditional velvets, mohair and silk organza into pieces. Her pieces were each made with more than one fabric. Lucian Matis presented his expansive ready-to-wear collection Matis, punctuated with colorful, artsy, and floral designs. Day 3 also saw the City of Light illuminating the latest looks from Joe Fresh. Joe Fresh has effortlessly and effectively incorporated Parisian chic into affordable apparel. Headscarf-sporting models donned two-piece knit sets, sheer, ruffled silk tops, polka dot blouses, sequinned designs, and pleated skirts. The fashion environment is a frenzy of  familiar faces sporting beautiful colors and dapper designs.

What I Wore:: Wednesday!

Maybelline has a sleek setup in the heart of the fashion environment at World Mastercard Fashion Week. The Fashion Environment is a frenzy of fabulous familiar faces and beautiful designs.

Guests at Fashion week are treated to Maybelline’s Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream Gel Shadow. The hottest trends in lips include VIVID color for Fall 2013.

Theresa Longo’s Expert Make-Up Tips

By Beauty Secrets, Beauty Tips, Dating Tips for Ladies, Image Creation, Inspiration, Make-Up, Model Stuff, Modeling Tips, PhotoshootsNo Comments

Being immersed in the world of hair and makeup puts me face to face with professional makeup artists from around the world!  Over the years I have amassed a vast number of expert make up tips to share with you. This post outlines my typical routine for photo shoot make up. To determine a less dramatic every-day -wear-look, this post has been divided into two parts: Every Day Wear & Photo Shoot Flair. I have worked with a lot of talented, inspiring make up artists. They are highly passionate and love to be creative. Check out my beauty secrets and expert makeup tips below:

Every Day Wear

Make-Up Tip #1. Always Start with a Fresh Face
Wash your face before applying make-up. Give your makeup a fresh foundation by cleaning and cleansing thoroughly prior to the ‘paint’.

Make-Up Tip #2 Choose Your Base
For every day wear I love L’Oreal True Match  

 Make-Up Tip #3 Conceal, Contour and Highlight
My favorite makeup tool is undoubtedly YSL Touche Eclat.  I use this above and below my outer brows, around my mouth, nose, and along the bridge of my nose. YSL Touche Eclat actually perfectly conforms to your skin tone and can be used to spot treat as well. I have included a contour diagram. The white shows where to use your YSL Touche Eclat on your face for best results. I use my clean fingers to blend my make-up. Check your face in natural light to ensure you do not have any unsightly streaks!

Make-Up Tip #4 – Beautify those Brows
Beef up your brow game with a great eyebrow pencil. When your eyebrows are well done you can get away with wearing as little make-up as possible. Good brows frame your face and make you look put together. For the best brows, a tip is to angle your brows, starting where your inner eye creases with the angle peaking ever so slightly out of center of your eyeball when you are looking straight ahead. Lastly your brow should end at the outer corner of your eye, approximately on the same level as your brow started. See Diagram. My favorite brow pencils include Maybeline and MAC eye brow pencil.

Make Up Tip #5- Luxurious Lashes
If you plan on turning your look up a notch for club wear or for a phot0 shoot, please proceed to Make-Up Tip #7 now. For every day wear, line your eyes with liner and brush a couple coats of mascara on your lashes. Here is a great tip for eyeliner: When drawing the line on your upper lid, the widest part of your line should be above your eyeball. Many ladies widen the line as it nears the corner of your eye; If you want to open up your eyes and make them more round, make sure your eye liner is thickest over your eye ball only.

Make-Up Tip #6 – Lovely Lips
Finish off your every day wear with lip gloss. Fresh, dewy lips are a must for your every day wear look.

 PHOTO SHOOT FLAIR

Make-Up Tip #7. Applying False Lashes
Many ladies tell me they have a hard time applying false lashes, I’ve heard from ladies that  it’s ‘messy’ or ‘impossible’. For me, I have mastered the trick to applying perfect lashes every time. You will need a pair of tweezers, and eyelash glue. I love QUO products. First, make sure you put each lash on the correct eye! Put the widest part of the last toward the inner corner of your eye! Many ladies apply the lash starting with smallest end first. To make your eyes appear round and wide ensure the longest lashes are next to the bridge of your nose. This will open your eyes and make them full and gorgeous. If you would rather apply the lash smallest end first- that is fine; however I am simply outlining the professional make up tricks I have learned over the years of working in the modeling industry. So, now you know which lash goes on which eye, cut the lashes in case they are too long or too wide. Take the first lash in your hand and apply a band of glue along the edge of the lash. Wait a few seconds, and gently lay it over your own lashes along the base of the lash line against your eye lid. To further solidify the lashes, and to prevent them from permanently popping up, use your tweezers to carefully bond the false lashes against your own. Always look away from the tweezers when bringing them anywhere near your eye.

Make-Up Tip #8. Define your Eyes!
After you have applied your lashes, add base hues to your eye lid. I prefer a reddish, rust colored base, gold, deep greys and purples to accent my brown eyes. Add Mascara and Eye Liner. Go back to Make-Up Tip #5 for useful tricks to applying perfect, professional grade, eye liner and mascara after color.

Make-Up Tip#9. Bronzer or Blush
I rarely wear blush or bronzer unless a MUA applies it. Reserved for public appearances or TV blush or bronzer really amps my look. Blush should be applied sweeping from the center of your face below the apple of your cheek all the way up to the highest point on your cheek bone.

Make-Up Tip#10. Lavish Lips!
My look is finalized by lining my lips with a color slightly darker than the hue of my lips and a quality gloss. There are endless options for lips. For glossy color, apply a coat of clear gloss over your favorite lipstick color. You can also leave your lips nude and glossy, or alternatively forego the gloss and wear a matte finish color for a classic, sexy look. In the cold winter months or in the hot summer sun, Lip Medex protects, smoothes, and saves my lips.
