Category Archives: Georgio and Mikaela – Changing the Face of Beauty

Sophia Loren once said, "Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful." It is a philosophy Georgio and Mikaela Fernandez, Celebrity Makeup Artists and founders of LadyLash Studios, embrace and live by every day. Their passion for bringing out the beauty in others has parlayed into a cult-like following and their client list reads like the social registry of who´s–who around the world. From foreign royalty to Hollywood´s hottest, high–profile socialites to the girls next door, Georgio and Mikaela are the makeup mavericks challenging the standards and changing the face of beauty.

Living a life full of heART

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful,
We must carry it with us or we find it not” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Handsome, hardworking, HAPPY.
Three words that come to mind when thinking of Ty Pennington. This is a man, a very good looking man, who builds dreams. Literally. Not only with his hands but with every fiber of his heart. He is a true artist in every sense of the word. His never-ending curiosity, paired with his desire to do good, has led him to change the lives of millions all over the world.

He is perhaps best know for his incredible work as the Emmy Award winning host of ABC’s Extreme Makeover:Home Edition. Ty’s television work demonstrates generosity, compassion and creativity. His focus, complete dedication and endless energy is poured into every project he lays his hands on. It can be seen and ,more importantly, it can be felt.
Ty has traveled the world gathering up ideas, experience and inspiration with his eyes, his camera (which never leaves his side) and his spirit.
When speaking with him it is easy to see the vision that he holds within his eyes. The same vision that later translates beautifully into his work.
He is special… and laughs heartily when you tell him so.

We had a chance to get down and dirty (let’s just say a lot of sand was involved!)  with Ty this past week at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival held in Miami… a place he knows well. Ty  partnered up with Sears (again) to help launch their 2013 outdoors collection inside the “Grilling is Happiness” lounge. Sears Is a leader in outdoor lifestyle trends and designs. They chose the beautiful sands of South Beach to unveil their latest collections that showcase how to bring beach, food and outdoor decor together.

Outdoor entertaining is a lifestyle not just a seasonal event and, as we expected, the outdoor living pieces are unique and g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s!
Each piece more beautiful than the next, expertly designed with comfort, elegance and durability. Ty Pennington at his best, innovating and creating eye-catching, never seen before designs that light up any room.

“It’s all about the outdoors~and were here to say ‘light up your outdoors’ ” Pennington says. “People are enjoying friends and family and entertaining outdoors more and more, it’s become the extra room”
Whatever your style~ whether it’s sophisticated, contemporary or casual -Sears has something to match your budget.  Our favorite collection is the Bella Luna collection. It recreates the romance of moonlight with soft illumination. Yes, the furniture pieces light up. “You can control the mood…light up where your at” says Ty.  Never done before. This is showing off… in a new light!

This collaboration with Sears is only one of many projects he has his hands on.
To keep track of his adventures visit www.typennington.com . Also look out for Ty continuing to change lives on his new show “American Journey” airing now on the  HLN Network  and for another exciting and inspiring project he’s beginning here in Florida.

We’re certain he never rests, never tires and looks great while doing it. So before leaving him we asked his (beauty) secret to it all. His advice is simple really,
“laugh more…it will takes years off your life.” Agreed.

Whether he’s building a dream house
or creating furniture for dreaming,
one thing is certain his heart is always in it.
So, go on TAKE A SEAT, relax and laugh a little~ Ty has you covered.

Forty and FabuLASH!

“A woman’s most powerful possession is a man’s imagination.” Miss Maybelline 1934

Photobucket

This morning, I started my week with forty glossy coats of mascara. “Forty winks” if you will.

Why the added (lash) drama you may wonder? Fluttering my over- the- top lush lashes is my tribute to

my favorite bright green and pink tube of Maybelline Great Lash mascara who’s turns 40 this week!

Photobucket

This is not just any mascara. No no no. This is a great mascara. In fact, a tube of Great Lash Mascara is sold every 1.7 seconds in the US and is

coveted by makeup artists, celebrities and beauty mavens everywhere who are serious about working their wink.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara made its beautymark launching in 1971.

The tubes signature bold colors were created by, then up-and-coming, designer Lilly Pulitzer.

Something especially fascinating to me is that through the years the formula has never changed. Never. The recipe is one of the best kept beauty secrets of the bizz.

Great Lash may be turning forty today but she has not lost her eye appeal, she continues her long and lengthy reign as THE number one selling mascara with 20 million pieces sold each year (!) and quite frankly, she is looking as fabuLASH as ever!

Although the formula hasn’t changed boy oh boy is she getting a gorgeous makeover.

Today, in celebration of forty years of fabulous, Maybelline has partnered up with designers Max Azria, Tracy Reese and Vivienne Tam to create three glam, fashion forward designs boldly wrapped around each tube of Great Lash. These designs are limited and can be found exclusively at Target (www.target.com) unless you live close-by … I assure you I have wiped the shelves clean.

See, Great Lash and I go way back. Growing up I can recall my Mom having a few items in her makeup drawer:

A blue hairbrush the color of a robins egg (or Tiffany box), a lipstick and a single tube of Great Lash mascara.

It was the discovery of this magic formula at this early age that my love-obsession of lashes began.

By 12yrs old I had my very own tube tucked in my purse. I spent an incredible amount of time in the mirror, mouth open, painting and painting and p.a.i.n.t.i.n.g this lush black lacquer to my lashes, never leaving home without at least one glossy coat. This is still my one cosmetic item I would choose to take on an Island with me.

Nothing made me feel more beautiful or more grown up. Nothing makes me feel more beautiful today.

Mascara has not only shaped and defined my lashes it has shaped and defined the woman I’ve become today.

Now thats something to batt your lashes at.

“Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe its Maybelline.” …. whatever it is it sure looks GREAT on you! Happy Birthday Beauty.

The Sweet Smell of Success

Gold is a luxury that stands the test of time, a universal symbol of sophistication and glamour.

Like a stunning piece of precious jewelry, GOLD lends everyday style a surge of seductive sparkle and timeless beauty.” Kim Kardashian

Photobucket

It was a picture perfect day at Macy’s Fashion Store at the Aventura mall this past Saturday.

Bombshell beauty Kim Kardashian was on hand creating quite a frenzy for the 300+ fans that showed up in hopes of a glimpse and perhaps a whiff of the sweet smelling glamour goddess.

On the heels (sexy Christian Louboutin pumps to be exact) of her overwhelmingly successful signature fragrance, Kim Kardashian, she proudly launched her newest creation~ Kim Kardashian Gold.

We had the pleasure to sit down with Kim, away from the downstairs madness , and quietly talk love, life and the pursuit of fashion !

Photobucket

As expected, we learned Kim was very involved in the 2 year long process, and in close collaboration with the perfume powerhouse team at Lighthouse Beauty, while creating her very personal second fragrance.

“This fragrance is very special to me.” She explains the perfume should be worn “like a fine piece of jewelry”. Kims fondest memories and passions are poured delicately into this sexy, curvy bottle which has a shape  reminiscent of her own killer curves! GOLD is a glitzed up, amped up version of her first fragrance, a slightly sexier more full bodied perfume perfect for sultry summer nights.

Photobucket

Knowing that it is important for Kim to not only smell good but also look good we asked her for her coveted beauty secrets.

Poised and painted to perfection (hey Joyce!) she demurely explained, “Confidence is key… its about feeling good from the inside out.” and that the foundation of beauty “is all about being clean”. She explains, ”Feeling confident is based on good grooming”. Kim suggests choosing products from the same skincare line to keep fresh and create that healthy glow allowing you to put your best face forward.

Spring/Summer season is the time for “sexy, dewy, fun makeup” says Kim

Whats next for this gorgeous bronzed beauty? With a summer season premier of “Keeping up with The Kardashians” , Kim tells us we can expect to see alot more of her younger sisters, Kylie and Kendall as well as her nephew Mason. Even beau Kris Humphries will have a presence this season!

Will all this lead to Kim slowing down long enough to smell the GOLD-en bouquet of amber, rose, bergamot, jasmine and musk delicately married in her new perfume? Sure, just not anytime soon! The day after her Miami appearance she dash-ed over to QVC and successfully (almost selling out entirely while on air) launched the clothing line, K-DASH By Kardashian , a glam line she’s created with sisters Khloe and Kourtney. Together, they are making hollywood style accessible to all with their signature line. The pieces are fab as expected from three sisters living the ultra-glam lifestyle in complete comfort.

She also revealed, while in Miami this past week she has been scouting new locations for their popular Miami clothing boutique DASH. Kim says they need more space and are looking forward to turning up the GLAM at a new location.

We have a feeling this is just the beginning for this young, smart and savvy entrepreneur. After all,  it seems everything Kim Kardashian touches turns to GOLD.

Royal Radiance

“Only do what your heart tells you.” Princess Diana

Photobucket

This past Friday as we tuned in, along with two billion people, at 4am to watch the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, our eyes were focused on one thing and one thing only, the breathtaking bride. We sat on the edge of our seats with what seemed to be forever, waiting for a glimpse of the beauty beneath the veil.

At the beginning of the week we heard the bride had chosen to paint her own face the day of her wedding. Knowing Kate had taken some lessons with a professional makeup artist we still had to wonder would she be picture perfect for her big day? On that morning, as the sun peeked from the clouds, her veil was lifted and a perfectly polished princess was revealed…Kate did indeed please.

Photobucket

The new princess made a beautiful statement with gorgeous strong brows, thick lovely lashes, and flawless skin. Her cheeks glowed as brightly as the smile wrapped warmly across her face.

Few words immediately came to mind~ elegant, breathtaking, confident and classic. From head to toe she bestowed timeless beauty. Her prince charming gently whispered, “You look beautiful.” The world melted. Her makeup did not.

The very next day calls poured into the shop. Appointments booked up. Everyone wants to “radiate like Kate.” 

Here is our our royal reccommendation for glowing from lashes to lips:

– Book a makeup lesson with a professional Makeup Artist and create a look that will have you feeling pretty as a princess

– Have your brows professionally sculpted to perfection

– Indulge in a set of Xtreme eyelash extensions. Ask for a little eye-lighting to add a twinkle to those eyes

– Choose a foundation to hide imperfections and create skin that appears flawless. A little here a little there. Less is more. 

– Choose a bright cheek cream to best suite your skin. Concentrate on the apples of your cheeks, bronzer also works to keep you naturally “blushing”.

– Paint your pout with a soft pink lipstick or gloss

Hats off to the The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, our hearts tells us this modern day fairytale will be one lived happily ever after .

A BEAUTIFUL BALANCING ACT

Photobucket

“Everything will be OK in the end. If its not OK… its not the end.”

Quote Power Couple Giuliana & Bill Rancic strive to live by

As we begin a beautyfull New Year here at LadyLash it’s incredibly important for us to continue to reach out- reach deep, inspiring and empowering people everywhere as we passionately continue on our path of “Changing Lives Through Beauty”.

This month we caught up with gorgeous E News Beauty Giuliana Rancic as she touched down in Miami, FL. for a wonderful cause.

Photobucket

Giuliana is a fascinating woman who proudly wears many many (fashionable) hats. She is perhaps best known as fun On-Air personality/host for E Television however, her job dosen’t stop there. She is just as busy ,if not more, behind the camera as well.

 This Italian born ‘force of nature’ does not slow down nor skip a beat. When the studio lights dim, her spirit shines as she continues to write, edit, produce, penn books and not to mention, i STAR in her hugely successful, and inspiringly ‘real’ reality show, Giuliana and Bill, along side her adorable and supportive husband, Bill Rancic.

Giuliana insists, “Have passion. Be the first person to arrive and the last to leave… people will notice.” Words she clearly lives by.

Giuliana along with CEO of Dress For Success, Joi Gordon, and Tropicana Trop50 partnered up with Girlfriends Giving Goodness to host a series of seminars to prepare and inspire women re-entering the workforce in a difficult economy.   Their goal is to reach out, encourage and instill confidence. After all “confidence is key” and Joi explains how empowering her job is, “Giving a woman a suit gives her self confidence and self worth. Wearing a suit just feels important”.

It truly touched our hearts to witness Giuliana and Joi taking time out of their insane schedules to mentor, support and provide these women with all the tools (and suits) they need- helping them believe in themselves, become successful and ultimately look and feel incredible as they unlock the new doors of opportunity before them. 

Photobucket

As we all laughed, teared up and sipped our pomegranate (!) Trop50 juices Georgio & I couldnt help but wonder how Giuliana does it all while maintaining a brilliant smile paired with a wild sense of humor. She is poised and embodies such style, grace and a sophistication that is widely admired. She gracefully shared her “secret”, “In order to balance it all it has to come from a deeper place. It comes from being grateful. I am very grateful. ” Giuliana shared.

She promises that taking just 5 minutes a day to be grateful will literally change your life. We agree. Try it. Practice it. LIVE IT. That advice has become our New Years Resolution.

As our time with Giuliana came to an end a few words danced across our minds:  S-mart.

S-ophisticated. S-uccessful. S-exy.

We felt honored to have sat down with yet another woman with a “S” painted prominent on her chest.  Watch out- this super POWER woman is taking over the world armed with gratitude, attitude, a little bronzer and fab lashes (her beauty must-haves)!

Thank you Giuliana, we are deeply grateful for our S-pecial moment with you.

Balancing Beauty Across The Globe,

Mikaela & Georgio Fernandez

MODERN DAY MARILYN

MODERN DAY MARILYN
“We are all stars, and we deserve to twinkle.” Marilyn Monroe

Photobucket

Marilyn Monroe. Two words, one unforgettable STAR.
To this day, she instantly captures your soul and transports your mind into a wild daydream filled of beauty and sensuality that is dripping with full on Hollywood Glamour.
Nearly fifty years after her passing Marilyn Monroe is still admired and completely adored by most of the world. Her alluring beauty, her face, her sultry eyes and her seductive red lips continues to turn heads and inspire us today.

Photobucket

As another beauty-full year comes to an end here at LadyLash Studios we couldn’t resist going on location to capture some old hollywood glamour.
We set the stage inside the Presidental (how fitting) Suite of the breathtaking Boca Raton Resort and transformed our gorgeous December LL Spotlight Beauty, Playboys Erica Lee Chevillar into a modern day Marilyn Monroe.

Photobucket

Ms. Chevillar lit up the room, effortlessly capturing Marilyn’s vibrant spirit, grace, style, sophistication and timeless beauty.

Although “her candle burned out long before her legend ever did”, Marilyn’s star is shining bright, passionately painted into our hearts.

Giving the Stars their twinkle,
Georgio and Mikaela Fernandez
