When improperly applied, makeup can have a harsh and unsettling effect on its onlookers, much like Richard Nixon's portrayal of Hamlet. Go easy on the eyes with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of professional cosmetics at Cinema Secrets Beauty Supply in Burbank.
Cinema Secrets' maquillage mavens have dedicated more than 25 years to crafting highly pigmented, oil- and petroleum-free makeup and makeup tools. Long-lasting lipstick ($9.50) and shimmery lip gloss ($8.99) keep teeth framed by creating luxuriously pouty lips, and eyeshadow ($6–$8) and cheek-cheering blush ($11) render countenances as youthful as a schoolgirl after George Clooney makes her an omelet. Paint faces with the confidence that the industry-grade makeup tools will hold up through repeated use and that the finishing and sealing products will keep them from sliding off. Prior to opening Cinema Secrets in 1984, owner Maurice Stein worked on film, TV, and commercial sets, where he learned from and worked with other makeup experts.
Cinema Secrets, a family business devoted to the quality and artistry of professional cosmetic products, supplies industry insiders and lay faces alike with superior makeup as well as beauty-related classes. Academy Award winner, makeup artist to the stars, and certified mensch Maurice Stein founded the beauty hub and its cosmetic line, which features products that elicit stunning effects appropriate for daily wear or for film, television, and theater work. The range of colors in each signature foundation palette blends to camouflage skin crises more subtly than single-color correctors or paper bags, and the brand's own signature brush cleaner keeps bacteria at bay. Skincare products by trusted brands such as Dermalogica, Jack Black, and L'Occitane also line the store's shelves, helping skin stay healthy between rougings. A multitude of skills awaits the steady-handed in classes that include applying advanced effects makeup for faux gore that reads on any big screen or any jury-duty interview, as well as corrective makeup courses for concealing moderate to severe scarring.
