OUR FIRST COVER- ZOOEY MAGAZINE with ASHLEY TISDALE
We are super excited about this! We’ve done many celebrities, and even have several pictures of them wearing our own Ferro Cosmetics products, but this is our first TRUE COVER and the first time working with the FABULOUS Zooey Magazine. Pick up your copy at Barnes & Nobles for the full scoop. We highly reccomend checking them out by going to www.zooeymagazine.com, and follow them on Twitter too @zooeymagazine! We’ve got some projects in the works with Zooey Magazine for their next issue too!
A LITTLE GLOATING MAY WE?
Everyone likes to brag just a little bit don’t they? Well, I admit I like to brag about all things Ferro Cosmetics at least. Because of Our humble beginnings, it always makes me proud when we have achieved accomplishments for the simple fact of how great our products are.
So here’s how we got the cover (and the bragging rights)…..
We were approached by Zooey to be a part of their Green Beauty Shoot, along with 16 other green/eco-inspired products and companies. So we sent in our products and hoped they were chosen for the center beauty spread featuring the gorgeous Ford Models.
Then we got an email from the magazine’s beauty director, Sharon Tabb, AND the editor, Lucia Tran, raving about how fabulous they thought the products were, and that they decided to use them all on Ashley’s cover shoot! That was a totally fabulous day, and even better was actually having the magzine in our hands, and seeing how truly gorgeous her makeup looked!
The entire spread of both Ashley Tisdale AND the lovely Ford Models really shows off the mission of our products: gorgeously glam yet making the look totally natural. Giving the look of naturally radiant skin, and making skin look radiant—NATURALLY! This is exactly how we have intended our products to function and look, and the photo shoots have embodied exactly that.
Never looking overly “made up” (or clown faced as we looked in the 80′s), and calling attention to the natural beauty of the woman as opposed to how beautifully she applied her makeup. Although we do like to toot our own horn, we never want the “tooting” so-to-speak to come from the actual makeup application- rather from the compliments you’ll receive from wearing it.
And by the way- that IS the most popular comment we hear from our clients: raving about all the compliments they have received suddenly as soon as they started wearing Ferro Cosmetics.
FERRO COSMETICS MINERAL MAKEUP – SOO ECO-FAB FOR PHOTO SHOOTS
Why is mineral makeup a better choice? Well for starters, not just ANY mineral makeup will do. Bismuth, commonly found in most brands (like i.d bare minerals) is a very shiny, man made ingredient that reflects light….lots of it….so is most times not the best choice. It can make skin look oily, even OFF photos. Worse, many brands mineral foundations are just too sheer, leaving alot of photo retouching for the photographers. Ferro’s Ultimate Mineral Foundation (used in Ashley’s shoot) is great both ON and OFF camera. No bismuth = NO shine, and the natural clays in Ultimate Mineral Foundation absorbs moisture and oils coming from the skin or the environment to keep shine at bay all day. It absorbs light from camera flash’s, keeping the skin’s natural skin tone in tact without whitening out the face.
The best part is that after the shoot- the model can go right back into the world with the same makeup on as the shoot! Normally photo shoot makeup is heavy and quite frightening to look at off camera- so after all the beautification is complete on the models, they end up washing it off after the shoot, leaving makeup-less. The same amount of makeup is applied for either a photo shoot OR just your regular day at the office with Ferro Cosmetics. The only difference is the amount of coverage desired. I myself like ecven full coverage everyday; I just like the look of perfect skin, and the same is required for most shoots. So, a few more light layers of Ultimate Mineral Foundation is applied for a shoot, but everything else is otherwise dictated by the desired LOOK or style, and the makeup application is simply directed by that styled look, with colors chosen just like you would to match your outfit for the day.
Watch out for an interview with Zooey Magazine’s Beauty Director Sharon Tabb, where she’ll share with us Ashley’s look and other makeup tips from the expert herself.
We’ll also share in another post all the products and shades used in Ashley Tisdale’s cover shoot.
