in the pink: my surprising life as an entrepreneur

January 7, 2011

Dermalogica Industry Insider Member and Celebrity Makeup Artist, Rea Ann Silva Shares Her Entrepreneurial Journey

After 20 years in the beauty industry, never in my wildest dreams did I think that a fuchsia-pink,  non-disposal, egg-shaped, edgeless, seamless makeup sponge would be my claim to fame. Which just proves that being an entrepreneur is full of surprises.

Four years ago, I created the Beautyblender, which is the makeup sponge I describe above. I got the idea for purely selfish reasons. As a professional makeup artist, I was sitting with my team in a trailer on the Paramount back lot in Hollywood, while HD TV was making quite a buzz within the industry. I was posed with an even bigger challenge than ever before; not only was I responsible for making people look their best on camera—now they needed to be HD-ready with flawless skin for those close-up and personal moments.

Then, there I was, cutting up makeup sponges into shapes we could use, something that every makeup artist did. Suddenly, it dawned on me that I’d much rather be having donuts and coffee with my girls than cutting up sponges.

So, Beautyblender was born—a superior makeup applicator that is a “must” for those in the industry who are HD-Ready pros. But its success rests with everyday women. They love it because the perfect egg-shape makes it easy to apply everything from foundation, concealer and other products with no streaks or seams. They also love the fact that you don’t have to throw it away after just a few uses. Blendercleanser, the lavender-based cleanser for the sponge, reduces bacterial action and keeps junk out of our landfills, because the sponge may be used many, many times. Even the packaging is dual-use—it’s a pedestal where the freshly washed sponge can be further sanitized by oxygen and sunlight. And, when the well-used sponge has finally given up its little hot-pink, egg-shaped sponge-soul after many, many successful makeups, I urge people to send the worn-out product back to my company, where we recycle them en masse.

Lots of people think that they are “secretly” meant to be entrepreneurs, mostly because they’re bored with their day-jobs. This is like people who say they are “really” artists or writers.

I can’t speak for anyone else, but I will say that there are sacrifices required. Time away from my family has been a huge investment, because I continued to work as a professional makeup artist so that I could get my sponge on the radar of the entertainment media.

The other qualities you need as an entrepreneur are persistence and focus. I was a bit naïve in the beginning, but I was also very patient. The key is not to get flustered to the point of defeat.

There were plenty of naysayers who did not take my idea seriously. At all. I got some very disappointing initial advice. If I had listened, I would still be sitting in the trailer, cutting up sponges, and wishing for a donut and coffee.

Beauty Blender
Well this is the famous pink espoja say they use the famous makeup.

Was released months ago as an entirely new product which was not only valid for the foundation, but also said was used to color correction, illuminating …

It consists of a pink egg made of a soft material (like sponges, always, but different, does not latex). Created by Rea Ann Silva and Veronica Lorenz, two of the most famous make up artists in Hollywood.

Used putting it in water and pressed it well, (increases in volume) so that is moist and the absorption of the product is low. Applies to pat all over face, down slightly, carefully, without dragging in the case of the foundation. I have to say to his credit, he is well diffused, without the annoying lines that often leave the traditional brush or sponge.
I find it very comfortable and the finish that makes it good.
I also used to apply the concealer. Both granite and dark circles, use the pick and press lightly and finish I like.
To apply shadows, like I do not see. And the blush, I have not tried it, so I can not give my opinion.

Say the duration is usually three months, but I have it for nine, but of course, nor do I put on makeup every day or whenever I use makeup.
Although I gave it to me, the price is 20 euros. Expensive, yes, to be a sponge, but its use is very comfortable and the result is good.
To wash, ideally cleansing gel may buy (another 20 euros) if you going to use a lot. I did not buy it but it’s really good. It smells of lavender and wherever touches the sponge is clean instantly, which does not happen with baby soft gel is what I wash it. As you can see in the picture, the base of the egg is darker and not because it is dirty but because it is stained and makeup. I imagine that the gel will not pass this mark.

It is definitely a good tool to facilitate the application of makeup. I buy it or not, depends on the economy of each, but if you really want and not want to release the eurillos, we can always take advantage birthday or kings that tickled us.

Super Sponge

February 24, 2010

Problem: You’re no makeup pro, as evidenced by the uneven splotches of foundation on your face.

Beautyblender Make-up Sponge

February 8, 2010

This is a fun duo that will make your makeup routine smoother.

I don’t wear too much make-up and as far as foundation goes, I wear barely any. I dab on foundation with my finger hitting only bad marks and dark areas, diluting with a bit of water & lotion.

When I first tried the Beautyblender, I made the mistake of thinking I should step away from my norm and try full coverage. I somehow thought Beautyblender would make full coverage look like I was wearing nothing at all. I was wrong.

However, when I stuck to my routine the Beautyblender became my friend. It takes all the effort out of blending.

I like to use the sponge wet. I put the make-up where I want it on my face and use the wet Beautyblender to blend by bouncing it over the make-up. Just bounce for a perfect blend. The pointed end is perfect for getting close to the eye and in the corners of the nose.

Then when you’re done use the cleanser, work to a foam, rinse and put back in the container to dry. Then it’s ready for next use.

I really like having the Beautyblender and so do celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Mariah Carey, Jessica Simpson, and Christina Aguilera,Beyonce, and Alicia Silverstone

Latex Free and recyclable. Yay!
