Behind-the-Scenes Beauty: October 18

Working in Urban's web photography studio, hair-stylist and make-up artist Russell Oden is constantly trying new products and testing them out on models. Below are a few of his new favorites he's discovered this week. 


A Beautiful Life Botanical Toning Mist

"This has quickly become one of my favorite items. Its only ingredients are rosewater, witch hazel, purified water, aloe vera, and grapefruit seed oil. A light spray of this toning mist will not only help to set your makeup or refresh your tired skin anytime of day, it can also be used as a gentle aftershave."

BECCA Luminous Skin Color 

"I’m really impressed with this product. It goes on like a moisturizer, yet gives me just enough coverage. Skin looks natural, bright and healthy. After I applied this, our model said, 'This really feels like nothing is on my skin!'"

Three Custom Color Specialists Artist Designed Lip and Cheek Stain in “Poppy” 

"I like the versatility of this product. Just a bit on the cheeks and you have an instant natural flush. A dab on the lips enhances and brightens perfectly. I find this works with all skin tones."

BECCA Brazilian Bronzing Sheen 

"What a great product! Not only is it the prefect orange free bronzing cream for your face, it’s also an amazing eyeshadow base, adding a sensuous feel to any eyeshadow color."

Alcone Super Matte Antishine 

"MY NEW MUST HAVE!!! This is the best mattifier I have ever tried. I apply a small amount to the skin, and then makeup as usual. We shoot for eight-hours under hot lights and our model never looked shiny. No powder was needed, no blotting papers. I am impressed…"
