One of the best pieces of advice I’ve taken away with me from my Wall Street career is to surround yourself with experts. No one expects you to know everything about everything, but you will only be as great as the people you surround yourself with. Life truly is a team sport, and Kelly Miron deserves the MVP award for bringing empowerment and confidence to the women in her life through her makeup and skin care expertise. Her business and passion, THE POWDER ROOM in Woodmere, OH is a MUST for anyone in the Cleveland area.

When I have any questions or concerns about my skincare and makeup routine, I turn to KELLY MIRON and her team and have never been disappointed (iS CLINICAL ACTIVE SERUM + EYE CREAM is just beyond AMAZING). So when putting together this 2015 Beauty Update for you, I obviously gave my girl, Kelly a ring. Straight off the bat, Kelly set me straight and convinced me that this 2015 Beauty Update should be less about runway trends that tend to be theatrical (and less wearable) and more about looks that can be easily incorporated into a client’s regular routine and elements that are age appropriate.
With all that being said, I proudly present THE POWDER ROOM’S Top 5 Beauty Tips/Trends that we could ALL integrate into our 2015 routines! Take it away, Kelly.
1. Glowing skin:
Everyone is looking for their skin to appear naturally glowing with an airbrushed, even look. Makeup is only as good as the skin underneath! Taking good care of your skin with facial services from a licensed esthetician and having a good at home daily skin-care regimen will do just that. A great professional service to achieve this look is to have a LACTIC ACID RESURFACING FACIAL. This is a treatment that lightens and brightens pigmentation, increases hydration and plumps by producing new collagen cells. Each month The Powder Room offers a special that incorporates a custom facial performed by Managing Esthetician, Karli, and products that complement the service.
For at home, something as simple as a good cleanser can make all the difference. The VERTERE Refining Treatment Cleanser leaves your skin firm and soft with lines visibly diminished while improving the appearance of blemishes. Skin appears airbrushed!
2. Purple Haze:
I just love this look! A little whimsical and not too serious. This looks starts with beautiful “air-brushed” skin with just a few accents here and there. Choose an eye primer to keep the look from creasing. Apply an even amount of the primer from lash to brow, then using a fluff brush, apply the eyeshadow in the center of the eye twirling the brush in a circular motion to diffuse the color outward. You shouldn’t see any lines of demarcation on the lid, just a pop of color to bring out the eyes. Finish with a great mascara adding one coat at a time. A splash of blush on the cheeks and a semi-transparent lipstick pressed onto the lips complete the look.
3. Red Lips:
It’s great to see that certain looks never go out of style. For me, a red lip always conjures up images of old Hollywood glamour, like Sophia Loren or Liz Taylor. This look is a more modern twist on an old classic. Instead of the perfect pout created with a lip liner to define the lip, this is more diffused on the outer edges and stronger and more concentrated in the center. Softer and less defined, the end result leaves you with a fuller, poutier and “just bitten” lip.
4. Bronzed Skin:
I’m a huge fan of warming up the skin tone, everyone looks healthier with a little color! There are several ways to achieve this look. We are all about the spray tan. No, not the common booth spray by a machine, but a custom spray tan that is applied by a trained professional. We offer 12 different colors to compliment any skin tone, from the most porcelain hard-to-tan, to the those who wish to be a bronzed-goddess. If spray tanning is not for you, we have many other products to help you grab a slice of the tropics without ever leaving Cleveland!

Face- DIEGO DALLA PALMA Tanning Cakes (comes in 8 beautiful colors, 4 matte & 4 shimmer), or

Lips- Baume de Rose in Rosy Babe from BY TERRY
5. Smoke Show:
This, in my opinion is a beautifully constructed smoky eye, paired with a soft cheek & lip. Not too heavy, perfectly blended and most importantly, wearable! Many times during Fashion Week when a smoky eye is shown, it is often portrayed as ” slept in,” or “messy.” This look is just beautiful. When properly executed, this look can be worn to just about anywhere: from the office, to dinner, or drinks.
Service: MAKEUP APPLICATION & BROW SCULPTING
Eyes- Custom Eye Shadow palette from FACE ATELIER (colors: Camel, Cashmere, Metallic Taupe & Carbon)
