Editor's note: The following post is written by our guest writer, Hourglass Artistic Director Gina Brooke. Here, she shares some of the things that inspire her on a daily basis.
People often ask: What inspires you? While a makeup artist can certainly be moved by a classic movie, an art show or a fashion trend, inspiration often comes from less obvious sources. A woman on the street. An article in the New Scientist. Or the color of a building you spy on your travels to the Far East. Almost anything can prompt a creative foray. Here I’d like to share some of my recent inspirations and how they were interpreted.

Jessica Alba is a certified sex symbol and has spent much of her career on the top of "hottest" and "most beautiful" lists. Jessica's enviable, eye-catching looks may be her calling card, but she's not afraid to change things up for a role. She's gone white-blond and fiery red, and doesn't shy away from flirting with fringe every once in a while. Nowadays, with a little one at home and another on the way, her flawless skin looks naturally gorgeous and glowing. To celebrate Jessica turning the big 3-0, we're taking a look back at her beauty evolution.
We're excited to present this story from Allure:
Just last week I blogged about my preference for glossy pink lipstick as opposed to bold red. But this weekend, all of that changed when I lip-locked with Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Lipstick in 401, a vibrant orange-red. I was one of ten bridesmaids in a wedding (that's me, at left) where the bride requested we wear red lips.
I have to admit, I didn't love the idea—that is, until makeup artist Tim Quinn (who works with celebrities like Megan Fox) said, "I have the perfect shade for you," and pulled out the aforementioned 401. The color complemented my bronzed, spray-tanned skin and, surprisingly, looked great with my brown smoky eye makeup. How come I hadn't discovered this hue before? "Most women base their shade of red lipstick on their skin tone only," Quinn says. The problem? "Skin tone often changes—with bronzers and spray tans—especially for big events like weddings." A better guideline, Quinn explains, is your eye color—not only does it always stays the same, but one of the best ways to make your eyes sparkle is with the right lip color. See Tim's tips when you keep reading.
