PROVICI Makeup Tips

Killer Cheekbones

In order to give the illusion of defined cheek bones you must use two shades darker than your skin tone. First make a fish face and apply PROVICI'S Bronzelite Bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks. Second, smile and brush the high lighter from the apples of your cheeks all the way to your temples. Third, give yourself a kiss in the mirror and you’re good to go. The contrasting tones help to define the cheek bone shape.

Getting Ready Quick!

Not enough time to do a quick touch up?  Have no fear because you can always spice up your look with any of PROVICI'S bold lip colours! Take Provici’s, Black Bubbly Lip Stain for a test drive when you are in the fast lane. This gives you the chance to change your day look to night look and it’s easy to do at a red light on the way to the restaurant from work. 

Larger Eyes

A tip for opening up your eyes, especially if you have lashes that don't have a natural curl to them is to use an eye lash curler. Place the lash curler at the roots of your lashes, then slowly "walk" it out to the tips while gently pumping the curler. Another good tip is to tilt your wrist upwards while doing this. Then just finish off with mascara.

You'll be amazed at how much of a difference it makes for your eyes.  Try using PROVICI'S Lush Black Mascara for thickening and lengthening.

A Smaller Forehead

If you think you have a larger forehead and don't want to get bangs there is something you can do to give the illusion of a smaller forehead.

You will want to reach for a matte bronzer - try PROVICI'S Bronzelite Bronzer. Apply the bronzer along the hairline to create the illusion of a shadow. You want to swirl the brush in the bronzer, and tap off any excess to keep the shade light and natural, and swirl in light circles for blending.

Perfect Pout

For the prettiest finish for your lips, run a damp toothbrush over your lips to exfoliate any dry skin. Post-scrub, lipstick will glide on without caking. Really good trick especially when the cold weather comes. 

Look Luminous

Every face has natural shadows, and you'll look better if you brighten them. To find the shady spots just smile at yourself in the mirror. You'll see darker areas like your cupid's bow, under your bottom lip, around the corners of your nose and at the inner corners of your eyes.

To lighten those areas, dab on concealer in one shade lighter than your everyday concealer, set it with powder and then go over those areas with a matte cream eye shadow for extra brightening.

Outsmart your Mascara

Want to use waterproof mascara but hate wrestling to remove it? Apply a coat of regular mascara first, then top it with waterproof. This way the waterproof formula locks onto the other mascara instead of your lashes, so it comes off more easily.  Try using PROVICI'S Hypoallergenic Waterproof Mascara.

Lipstick Bleeding #1

If you want to prevent your lipstick from bleeding, or if you have fine lines around your lips, coat your lips going slightly outside the lip line with a clear balm like plain ChapStick before applying the lipstick. It works like invisible spackle.

Lipstick Bleeding #2

Another tip for lipstick bleeding is to outline your lips with concealer to act as a barrier. Try using PROVICI'S Concealer enriched with Aloe and Vitamin E.

Testing Lipstick

What most of us do when looking to try a new lipstick is we swipe the color on the back of our hand to see if it flatters. A better way to tell is to test the lipstick on your fingertip. By doing this you can hold the color next to your face to see how it looks. No mirror? Your finger is still a better gauge, since it's closer in color and texture to your lips than the back of your hand.

4 Da Laffs 2014
Active ImageWith a world wide combined following of 519,000 on Instagram, Philippine comedian superstars Pokwang, Chokoleit, K Brosas and Pooh came to Canada to do two shows.  Their first stop in Vancouver to a sold out audience of over 700 and their second show right here in the 'Peg packed in over 1200 people at Pantages Theatre.  Their show "4 Da Laffs" was a roaring hilarious hit!

Active ImageShow producers Todd Labelle Promotions #teamlabelle, wanted to give the superstars Winnipeg-style red carpet treatment.  They were driven around in limos, dined at exclusive restaurants and when it came to makeup and hair, the show organizers only wanted the very best ... Provici Cosmetics.

Active ImageThe four foreigners were enchanted by Provici's VIP treatment, especially Pokewang and Pooh.  They both loved their world class treatment as Team Provici massaged their bodies while having their hair and makeup done all at the same time.  The gracious superstars thanked PROVICI endlessly during their one-on-one primp time and exchanged contact info to stay in touch.  No biggie, just another part of job... working with international world touring stars.

We love adding more sparkle to everyone's shine!

Oscar Fashion Winners/Losers

Active ImageThe morning after the 86th Academy Awards show, Tia was on CTV Morning Live to reveal her picks for the fashion best and worst... but in Tia fashion we'll not say "worst", rather those "needing 911 EMERGENCY Style Advice."
 
Among the the 911 Emergency Style list was, Roman toga-wearing Penelope Cruz, pajama partying Liza Manelli and "what the heck was she thinkin?!?" Whoopi Goldberg

Having chuckled over the fashion 911 celebs, Eleanor Coopsammy asked Tia about the bright lights on the red carpet.  Lupita Nyongo, Charlese Theron, and Jennifer Lawrence stood out from the crowd with their fashion-forward dresses.  Kate Blanchette taking the honour of most beautiful gown for "Ala nude inspired" - the trend for this season.
 
Active ImageAfter the fun segment shoot, Tia quickly chatted with Terri Apostle in front of the green screen, until they heard, "5-4-3..." so Tia bounded off-set.  Not even 8:00 a.m. -- a good day to stop at Stella's!
  


Attending the Juno's? 'Juno-how' to do makeup? If you need makeup artistry or fashion advice, get help from Tia.  Remember she's based in Winnipeg and happy to unleash your maximum best.

Tia Wins Business Exec of 2013

Active Image Our very own Tia Provici had a major presence at the second annual Manitoba Filipino Business Council (MFBC) Awards Gala.  The sold out gala, held at "The Gates on Roblin" on October 18, 2013, was an event of glitter and celebration.

John Reyes, President of MFBC , says "this is an elegant evening honouring the best and brightest business people and entrepreneurs who have been helpful in building the Manitoba/Filipino community." 

Tia shared the Master of Ceremonies duties with Big Marv of Virgin 103.1.  In her usual way, the words flowed out with personality, and she kept the crowd excited with her enthusiasm. 

Toward the end of the formal proceedings came the category that Tia was nominated in.  And when the announcement was made, that the winner of the 2013 Female Business Executive of the Year was Tia Provici, there was a very long applause which gave Tia time to gather her thoughts.

She invited her family on stage to thank them for their support over the years.  Thank goodness she was wearing Provici's waterproof mascara, as the moment was an emotional one for Tia.

It was a fun and exciting evening -- congratulations to the MFBC for a wonderful first-class event, and a salute to all of the winners and nominees; Winnipeg will be a better place because of these amazing entrepreneurs!

PROVICI EXCLUSIVE: Tips for the Eyes

Do you have small eyes?  Make them pop with the magic of makeup!  Here are a few tips to help you with your eyes.

PROVICI TIP # 1: Groom Your Brows - Our first tip is not even makeup: keep those eyebrows well groomed to help open your eyes even more.  Even without any makeup, eyes look instantly wider when they're framed Active Imageby well groomed brows.  See a professional for the perfect plucking, or try it yourself by using tweezers to remove any stray hairs under the arch of your brow. Fill in sparse spots with brow powder using an angle brush.

PROVICI TIP # 2: Avoid Dark - You will also want to use light colors on your eyes.  Dark shadow shades make small eyes look even littler. Instead, brighten things up with light colors such as bone, taupe and heather.  Soft fun colors, soft greys and soft white are good choices for all skin tones. For liner, go with a deeper tone, but avoid a thick line of black or charcoal, which can actually appear to close the eye.

PROVICI TIP # 3: Shimmer Shimmer - Another shadow trick: use a shimmery formula which reflects light and makes eyes pop. Pick a shadow with a subtle glimmer, but avoid very heavy frosts as they tend to settle into fine lines. 

PROVICI TIP # 4: Girl Curl - Curled lashes are the secret weapon to opening up eyes. Even using natural false eyelashes can really open up the eyes.
