Flawless Finish!

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Announcing the 2nd 2011 Summer Spirit Special

Get your Custom Blended Mineral Finishing Powder

Normally $50   NOW ONLY $34.95

(Offer expires July 2nd)

I have been doing makeup since I was eight years old.  I have been a professional makeup artist for almost 30 years. (Yikes!)  The one question I hear most often is:  How do I get that flawless finish that makes you look so put together and perfect? 

The answer is really simple.  A quality translucent powder applied with a natural fiber kabuki brush.  Spirit Custom Makeup has two finishing powders.  You can choose between custom blending the finest loose Mineral Powder to match your skin tone exactly and a specially formulated “Flawless Finish” powder that has no color and is so fine it feels like silk!

The secret is also in the application.  Spirits professional quality kabuki brush is the perfect tool.  After applying your makeup, “dip” the brush in your powder and tap off any excess.  The brush’s natural fibers hold onto the powder and deposit it onto your face.  By using a circular motion you blend away any blotchiness and lines of demarcation caused by applying glamour makeup.  The result is a perfectly flawless finish that lasts until you take it off!

Call to make your appointment now!  This special only lasts through Saturday July 2nd!  616.881.3901

Saving Face!

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011


The number one cause of pre-mature aging:  TOO MUCH SUN!  Foundation makeup is the final step in every skin care regimen.  It stays on your skin all day and creates a barrier between your most sinsitive and exposed skin and the elements (wind, extreme temperatures, pollution, etc.).  It can hold natural moisture in keeping it from evaporating and preventing dehydration and fine lines.  And now that Summer is finally here, it is especially important because it protects your skin against the damage caused by the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays.

 Spirit Custom Makeup’s Custom Blended Moisture Tint is the perfect summer season every day makeup.   It’s light, non greasy formula isfortified with Vitamin E, an abundance of sking protecting and anti-aging botanicals and has a SPF of 30!  Because it’s custom blended in the Spirit Studio it will match your skin tone perfectly.  You can also choose from a variety of scientifically proven additives that replace important minerals, have a skin tightening and lifting effect and promote healing and anti-aging!  A little more coverage or a little less is easily achieved as well.  Your exclusive formula is kept on file at the Spirit Studio which makes re-ordering as easy as a text, email or phone call.

 Spirit makes it especially affordable during the first ever Summer Spirit Specials event!  Normally priced at $45, from June 1, 2011 through June 15, 2011 you can make your appointment for custom blending and get your perfectly matched Custom Blended Moisture Tint for only $29.95!  That’s more than a 33% savings!

Elements of Elegance Photo Shoot!

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

Finally! I know I’m behind when a shoot I did in October is reaching my blog in December! The weather was a little less cold. The ground didn’t have any of that white stuff we are seeing here today. Both my house and Dee’s (Dee Mitchell, owner of Elements of Elegance Event Planning and Floral) were full of models and people all working together to pull off this, her first commercial shoot for her amazing business. She had it planned to the smallest detail and showcased so many other businesses in the process, including Spirit Custom Makeup & Makeup Artistry!

2010: The Year of the Brow!

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

It takes only a split second for someone to create a judgement about you based solely on how you look.  It is well worth a little extra time  to look in the mirror and make a true and objective determination about the image you want to project.  One of the most overlooked details is the eyebrow.

Let’s be clear here;  your eyebrows frame your face!  They accentuate your personality and either add dimention or distraction to your look.  The ungroomed brow can make you look dowdy, tired and even careless!  Finding the right shape and color takes a little extra time and effort.  If you are going to take the time to put makeup on your face… make the time to address your eyebrows.   And if you are one who prefers to go without makeup… it’s even more important to keep your brows shaped and well groomed!

Brows are created in a multitude of shapes, widths and lengths.  They also provide emphasis on your emotion or demeanor.  So choosing the right shape for you is as important as choosing your hair style and color.   If you are unsure of what brow style would be right for you, it’s best to clean up and enhance your natural shape.   It’s easy to do yourself if you have the right tools:  a good pair of tweezers, a magnifying mirror, a white or light colored eye pencil to mark out the brows you want to eliminate.

“Traditionally”, the shape of your brows should begin, arch and end following three simple guide lines.
