For years, makeup artist Danessa Myricks has been traveling all across the world to teach other artists how to achieve the dreamiest, most luminous skin on their clients, as well as how to add imaginative additions of color to looks. Now that she's having to sit still and put her in-person classes on pause, she's about to make her expertise more accessible for everyone.
Not only is Myricks going to offer free virtual masterclasses with Danessa Myricks University but she's also expanding her beloved, inclusive line of multi-use products. The newest shades of Danessa Myricks Beauty's Colorfix, Prism FX Hydrating Lotion, and Illuminating Veil drop today, September 12, and Myricks gave Allure exclusive details on all 10 of the latest hues and how to easily use them like a pro.
In all of my favorite makeup artists' kits, I've spotted the Colorfix 24-Hour Cream Colors. They never just have one — over a dozen are always available at all times. I, too, have fallen in love with their opaque, streak-free, intensely pigmented, and waterproof formula for adding color to my face. The tiny, hygienic tube is a liner, blush, lipstick, and eye shadow all in one. Right now, it comes in neutrals, brights, and metallics, but neons are finally a part of the wide shade range.
The pandemic is causing the beauty world to change rapidly as people are more inspired than ever to add new, adventurous makeup to their beauty routine, Myricks tells Allure. "Colors that were once reserved for the daring and bold are now becoming more palatable for even the more conservative beauty consumer," she adds. After noticing not only this but also an uptick in demand for the brand's Waterproof Vivid Palette and Waterproof Cushion Colors in electric hues, she decided the beloved Colorfix deserved a neon moment.
