Can a 3D printer revolutionize the cosmetics industry?


Have you all heard about the Harvard Business School grad everyone’s talking about today?

Meet Grace Choi. The college grad debuted a 3D printer that prints makeup in ANY COLOR you could possibly want.

SERIOUSLY.

A lot has changed about makeup since we were little girls. Back then, if we wanted to wear it, we’d have to sneak a little bit of lipstick when no one was looking or save up our allowance to buy a mascara. But now, everything is about to get way easier … and digital.

Grace Choi, a Harvard Business School grad (and our new favorite person on earth) debuted her new 3-D printer that not only PRINTS MAKEUP but does it in any color you could possibly want. Simply by grabbing the color code from a photo and hooking the small device up to your computer, you have an endless supply of lipsticks and eyeshadows in any shade.

Choi demonstrated how the printer works at a tech conference, and we have to admit, we’re pretty excited to get our hands on one. She plans on selling them for $300 each, but when you think about all the $10 eyeshadows you’ve purchased over the years, and the fact that you may never need to visit a Sephora again … it’s a not such a huge price to pay.

How to get Amber Heard’s gorgeous Golden Globes makeup!

Amber Heard at the Golden Globes - low res

Amber Heard turned heads at Sunday’s 71st annual Golden Globe Awards. The breathtaking actress, a presenter at the awards ceremony, teamed her midnight blue Atelier Versace dress with a romantic up-do and alluring makeup by Hourglass. “Amber brought some of her own ideas to the mix,” says makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen. “She liked the idea of focusing on sultry chocolate eyes, creamy skin and soft nude lips. I was just bringing out the remarkable geometry and beauty of her face.”

Here’s how to recreate the look:

COMPLEXION: Moisturize skin with Cle de Peau Gentle Nourishing Emulsion. Prime with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, conceal with Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Warm, and follow with Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in Light Beige. “No. 28 hydrates beautifully but it also creates a magical finish,” he says.

BROWS: Define the brows with Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette.

EYES: Apply the shell shade from the Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Palette as a base color all over the lids. Follow with the bronze shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy applied to the crease and under the eyes. Deepen the bronze with the brown shade from Vol. 6 Eye Palette applied to the outer corner, top and bottom of the lids. Line the eyes with a deep plum pencil like MAC Eye Kohl Prunella. “I also smudged the line with the black shadow from the palette,” he says. Apply a high-shine pearl shadow to the inner corner of the eye. Apply a coat of Hourglass Film Noir Mascara, allow to dry and curl lashes. Amplify with individual lashes like Ardell Duralash Flare in Medium Black.

CHEEKS: Apply the sheer rose shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to the cheeks, and highlight with the sheer champagne shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Bronze Light. Retrace your steps with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal Light, an opalescent sheer powder which mimics a moonlit glow.

LIPS: Line lips with Hourglass Trace Lip Liner in Bare and follow with Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Whisper, a golden pinky beige shimmer. “The look is glamorous but restrained,” adds VanLeeuwen. “She is so extraordinarily beautiful.”

Amber’s makeup is gorg – but that hair has got to go!
