Beauty Buzz : Illusions Cosmetics Beauty Palette


Beauty Buzz : Illusions Cosmetics Beauty Palette


Janice and Denise Tunnell, friends of mine and amazing makeup artists to the stars, have worked on numerous movie sets, television shows and a bounty of celebs. With the ladies cosmetic line Illusions Cosmetics, they have come up with the amazing The Red Lip Palette for the lips that every woman will love. Here is a sneak peak at the palette and a little Q & A with Janice Tunnell.

The Red Lip Palette features five sultry lip hues that range from a vibrant blush to deep cinnamon. These colors will transfer you from Spring to Summer and flow into Fall. The super hydrating formula adheres to the skin, protects and softens throughout the day. With the trend of a makeup-less face, all one need is The Red Lip Palette and mixing is a breeze. Go to: to purchase “The Reds” for $28

IMG_9446How did you come up with the colors for this collection?

Janice: The red lip is in and is very popular. It works well when dressed up or down. We wanted to provide a range of colors so that all women could find the right shade for them. There is a red for every skin tone. You have a blue-red, red-orange, red-brown, and most importantly a true red that is included in the palette.

Why are palettes the thing now?

Janice: Palettes are popular because they give women options. In our palette, you receive five lipsticks at one price instead of having to purchase five individual lipsticks. They are great for layering and mixing colors. They were created for the everyday woman as well as the Makeup Artist who wants more but carry less.

Do you use these on your celebrity clientele?

Janice: Yes, we use “The Reds” Lip Palette as well as other Illusions Cosmetics products on our celebrity clients.

Where can everyone purchase this must have item?

Janice: The lip palette and the entire Illusions Cosmetics line can be purchased at and we will come to retailers soon.

What’s next with Illusions Cosmetics and the Tunnell Twins?

Janice: Illusions Cosmetics has a new lip-gloss collection coming Summer 2015 and we are continuing with our efforts to expand the brand around the globe. [We] are currently working on Season 2 of Survivor’s Remorse, hosting an online radio show every Sunday night called “Beauty Talk”, and preparing for the second Season of our web series of “Beauty Talk.” We will continue our Beauty Tour in 2016 with locations both in and out of the country. We are starting a new video series called “The Glam Squad Diaries” which  showcases makeup looks and behind the scenes footage of our work on film and television sets.
