A few months ago, my friend Whitney asked if I would film a beauty tutorial once her salon finished their renovations. I enlisted Alexa Kiss‘ help with the makeup artistry.
Whitney and Alexa work at Salon West 54 Hundred. They won a Nappie award for best salon last year. Alexa was runner-up for best makeup artist. It’s a people’s choice award hosted by one of local publications.
They recently added a style bar.
This is an Aveda salon, so we used Aveda products. I always wanted to try their makeup line. I use several of their hair products. Aveda is vegetarian and vegan and cruelty free. The products I used were gluten and wheat free. I know this, because I didn’t have an allergic reaction.
I personally vet these products just for you.
After assembling my outfit and camera for the shoot, I headed to the salon armed with a picture of Cara Delevigne.
Here’s a pic of the products we used for the tutorial:
