Fashion Friday's!

| Friday, November 25, 2011

As promised, we at Artists Within have been staying on top of the seasonal trends so you don't have to. All you have to do is read the blog and you will be fully prepared to show up to any soiree this season looking HOT head-to-toe.

This season we are seeing gorgeous jewel tones, glitz and glitter!

No one can resist kissing a red lip! Dry, flaky lips are a NO NO. Prep them before dressing them; try using a toothbrush, brown sugar or a face cloth to rid them of those pesky flakes.

Prime your lip by lining them with a MATCHING red lip pencil. Fill the lip completely with the pencil and finish off by applying your lip color with a lip brush, covering the whole lip. Don't forget the corners! This will not only leave you with long lasting color, it will always prevent your red bleeding off the lip line. Remember, no hot messes allowed!

Complete this look with a wash of GOLD over the lids to add a festive look. If you feel you need to punch it up, add a winged eye with a cream liner and a fine liner brush. Jolly Saint Nic will turn naughty this year with a look this stunning!

Fan a room with your lashes!

|

Every party calls for LASHES! Long, thick, beautiful, "fan the room" lashes! You can try to achieve this through top of the line mascaras, drops/serums, and fibers but the reality is they will never look as good as those strips we glue on. However, if you are one of those ladies that get real emotional during meetings with old time friends and reminiscent moments, strip lashes and mascara are not for you!

Let alone the hassle of applying those lashes without glueing your lids closed....

AW's Senorita Jessica Nunez

There is a gorgeous senorita running around Calgary and she belongs to us! AW Models International would like to introduce to you the stunning Jessica Nunez.

New to our agency, Jessica has already had plenty of opportunity presented to her and her gorgeous-ness.

She walked in ARTwear and killed it! Looking ridiculously hot and Megan Fox-esque, jaws were hitting the floor at light speed

[[posterous-content:mlieAzcdtmCncvabhCwp]]

With looks this smokin' there are a few people out there lacking the "good genes". Jessica has taken from the rest of us, but we love her for it!

If you are interested in booking Jessica for your photo shoot/fashion show/etc, please visit ourwebsite for more details.

In the meantime, here is some more Jessica Nunez eye candy....

Online makeup store:Officially launched!

| Tuesday, November 15, 2011

With Christmas fast approaching *bleck* our minds are forced into consumer mode. We all transition and accept our gluttonous tendencies during the holiday season and more than usual, shopping is on the brain!  We have all received the gifts, although appreciated, we have never worn, never used, never even gace any thought to after the next gift was opened. It happens. BUT it doesn't have to happen this year!

The team at ARTISTS WITHIN has been working hard to launch our online makeup store and we did it! Launched today, November 15/2011, we will now be selling PRO makeup to AW make up artist students, AW makeup artist graduates and any and all makeup junkies out there! Browse through our variety of products to find everything you will need to cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin. Moving right along to creating that flawless base with our cream foundations, sculpting the perfect brow to compliment your individual features, priming your lids to ensure all night wear of that impeccable winged liner, and the most beautiful bordeaux lip. We have all that and more! 

So pull out the Christmas cookies, chocolates and bonbons. Throw your hair up in a messy bun, put your slippers on and curl up on the couch with your laptop; ARTISTS WITHIN has solved all your christmas shopping woes!

Artists Within has our own MadMan:Cody

| Friday, November 4, 2011
With all the hype surrounding AMC's hit show MAD MEN, Donald Drapers steamy love affairs, and all the scandal that goes on at the ad firm "Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce", we felt it necessary to have our very own MAD MAN at AW Models International!
It only seems appropriate to jump on the band wagon....

AW Models International would like to welcome Mr. Handsome Pants CODY to our roster of beautiful models!

Watch for this guy, he's gonna kill it!

For now, we'll just gonna tease a little and show off some of Cody's madmen skills in this classic photo shoot!






Wowza! He could sell a fur coat to PETA with those handsome features!!


So move over Donald Draper, there's a new guy in town and he's all our's....

Ok, we'll share!









To find out about booking Cody to model for you or to become a model, please visit www.artistswithin.com

Much love,

Artists Within Team xo






Carl Abad working it for Avenue

| Thursday, November 3, 2011
Artists Within's artists have been busy this year with their hands + brushes in all sorts of shoots, events, TV specials, fashion shows, VIP parties and more!

Our very own CARL ABAD is no exception to that!

Pick up your latest issue of Avenue Magazine to see what Carl recommends we need to be wearing this winter, where we need to be shopping, what we need to buy and why! What else can we ask for?!?! He may even cook you dinner if you're really nice to him...


Winter is going to rear its ugly head soon, like, tomorrow soon and you better be prepared! And lets get real, its not all about function. FASHION is a must, and if it happens to be functional and fashionable, buy 10 of them!

Good thing Mr.Abad is considering both your vanity and you warmth with this issues winter picks. Take a look at your options, get in the car/on the bus/train/cab whatever and get your new winter threads!



For the boys.....you know your lover/husband/boyfriend/poolboy needs new winter swag


And, of course, for the gals....you know you want one for every day of the (work)week






Turn to page 66 of Avenue magazine and you'll find more of Carl's expert tips!

To find out about booking Carl as your personal shopper or stylist this Holiday season, visit our website for more info! www.artistswithin.com

Hugs and Love from,

The Artists Within Team
