Unique New Year’s Eve Makeup Ideas You

As this year comes to an end, we find ourselves debating whether to stay in on New Year's Eve or go out to greet 2018 with open arms. If you and your clients are leaning towards the latter, then I highly encourage you to bid adieu to 2017 in style! Here are some unique New Year’s Eve makeup ideas you need to try!

Unique New Year’s Eve Makeup Ideas You Need to Try

The Sparkliest Night of the Year

Most don’t need an excuse to use a little extra glitter, especially during the holiday season, but New Year’s Eve is the perfect opportunity to show off your shiniest self. 2016 may go down as the year of glittery lip art, 2017 will be remembered for the glitter explosion…. so it would only be right to send it off with a final bang.

Tell your clients to grab their shiniest eyeliner, lip gloss, and nail polish! It is time to get to work!

Midas Touch

Use a gold highlighter or shadow to help your clients stand out during their holiday parties. Don’t be shy! Apply generous amounts of gold to your client's cheekbones and brow bone. Also, remember that royal purple is the complementary color of gold so a dress or top of this color will help your client shine. 

Midas Touch Product Suggestions:
Cheekbones and Brow Bone:
Gold Coast (Shimmer) or Iced Cocoa (Shimmer)
Eyeshadow Base: 
Truffle (Shimmer)
Lipstick: Subtly You (Sheer)
Lip Gloss: Golden (Shimmer)

Duo-Chrome Shimmer

If your clients are already a fan of the smoky eye, then they will absolutely love the duo-chrome shimmer. Apply a base of black or brown matte shadow to their lids then tap on a layer of pigmented shimmer to the middle of their eye working out gradually.

Duo-Chrome Product Suggestions:
Eyeshadow Base:
Coal (Matte) or Espresso (Matte)
Eyeshadow Shimmer:

Truffle (Shimmer)
Azure (Shimmer)
Sweet Plum (Shimmer)
Eyeliner: MK Black

Make Your Season Merry and Bright With These Holiday Looks

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year, and it’s especially the case when it comes to helping your clients switch up their beauty routines. The holiday season is the perfect time to experiment with sparkles, bold lip colors, and glowing skin. Make your season merry and bright with these holiday looks.

Make Your Season Merry and Bright With These Holiday Looks

Warm Cocoa

This first look is a slight deviation from the traditional holiday-themed makeup but is one of my all-time favorites. For your clients that want a subtle, but stunning new look for their holiday party suggests a smokey brown eyeshadow. Follow the same routine you would for applying a black smokey eye with a warm brown.

Evergreen Fantasy

For your clients seeking a more dramatic look suggest a smudged forest green eyeshadow for a sultry holiday look. This eyeshadow color is a beautiful complementary color for both hazel and blue eyes.

Ruby Red

I believe we have all at some point promised ourselves we would wake up early only to snooze five different alarms and stumbling out of bed at the last possible moment. Your clients are no exception. Suggest a deep berry or red lipstick to dress up her current makeup routine with minimal effort. Finish the look off with a gentle sweep of mascara so that she’s sure to be the bell of the ball.

Sugar Plum Shimmer

Suggest a shimmering highlighter to pair with your client's contouring palette. A hint of shimmer will help to brighten up their look for a glow effect. Gently brush shimmer in the inner corners of their eyes and along their cheekbones.

At UnitWise we understand the importance of recommending the perfect look for your clients, We hope you found this blog informative for yourself and your customers as your hide them through all the amazing #MK products available. We suggest sharing this blog post with your customers and unit members.

Make your own gift certificate (redeemable starting in January) using UnitWise to offer as a bonus freebie when your clients purchase more than a certain amount. Remember, most of your clients will spend more than the gift certificate amount when they come back to shop with your in the new year.

Check Social Media Feeds

Your social media feed is a literal gold mine, especially Facebook. If you pay attention to what your clients and friends are posting about you can use this as an opportunity.

Beauty Trends of 2017 We Never Saw Coming

The holiday season is in full swing and in just a few short weeks the year will come to an end. So now is a perfect opportunity to look back at the beauty trends of 2017 we never saw coming. This year we have seen an utterly massive amount of new trends that mesmerize, enchant, and sometimes horrify us.

While some trends are sure to follow us into 2018 we can only hope and pray most will fall off the face of the earth before we can refresh our Instagram feeds. While I can not claim to be a fan of all of the latest trends, there is no denying that some are genuinely fascinating.

So without further ado, here are the beauty trends of 2017 we never saw coming.

Weirdest Beauty Trends of 2017 We Never Saw Coming

Sticking Things on Your Face

I honestly have no idea where to begin with this trend. From pearls, gems, flowers, stickers, glitter, stones, and now stars. Its official gluing things to your face in 2017 is not only cool but in fashion. Even though most of us learned this was a bad idea in grammar school some have decided to give it another go. Embrace your inner child and try out this trend before 2018.

Fascinating Eyebrows

If the eyes are the window to your soul, then the eyebrows are the curtains. I am a huge fan of the fuller more natural eyebrows of 2017. From the catwalk to the office, women are sporting more natural-looking arched brows. This trend is a welcomed transition from the pencil-thin brows of the early 2010’s and 2016’s exaggerated arches.

By this point you have already been inundated with the onslaught of brow trends this year has had to offer and you have been an excellent trooper through it all. From barbed wire, squiggle, bleached, and craved eyebrows, we have indeed seen it all. However, 2017 is not over yet, and spiked eyebrows just made their appearance on our feeds. This trend can only leave one asking, what is next?

Fantastical Creature Invasion

This year we have all experienced the unicorn phenomenon (Invasion) that somehow infiltrated all forms of our lives from bagels, frappuccinos, hair, nails, makeup, and everything else imaginable. Then as the year quickly progressed we were introduced to make other mythical creature inspired trends, most prominently mermaids.

I can unequivocally state that this year is officially the year of mythical creature beauty trends. From mermaid hair, glitter galore, mermaid-inspired makeup, mermaid rhinestone-studded nails, and just when we think we are free of the mermaid trend the internet brings forth mermaid eyelashes. Nope, I promise I could not make this up.

So what are mermaid lashes? They are multi-colored lashes that are supposed to represent the colorful and full ombre glory that is mermaid eyes. Moreover, to answer your question, yes they are trending.

Everything Else:

Honestly, I could spend days writing about all the beauty and makeup trends we have seen this year, but I just wanted to cover the most unusual. For the last trend, I only have three words: nose hair extensions-- you are killing me.

No matter how much beauty trends might change your Heroes at UnitWise will always be here to help grow your MK business. We hope you have enjoyed these 2017 beauty trends, please share your thoughts down below and share your hopes for 2018.

5 Easy Ways You Can Prepare For a Stress-Free Tax Season

It is tax time, and I know it is hard to contain your excitement! You may find this hard to believe, but, some people are not ready for tax season….shocking, we know. But, have no fear, UnitWise is here and available to help you make your tax season a breeze. Here are five easy ways you can prepare for a stress-free tax season.

5 Easy Ways You Can Prepare For a Stress-Free Tax Season

You might consider this post slightly premature but let's think back to last tax season? Did you wait until the last possible moment or were you prepared? Well, thankfully you have UnitWise on your side helping you prepare invoices, track sales, expense reports, and more.

1. Update Account, Expenses, and Income

As a UnitWise member, you have access to tons of accounts and reporting features that keep up with all your expenses. We offer premade accounts and reports that calculate your commission and saving, but at any time you can create additional reports that fit your needs.

For example, you can create reports based on your checking, credit amounts, or monthly bills. Within your account click edit in the action tab and enter the new expenses or change the balance of each account to manage your bills, expenses, and income.

Our Trip Logs feature allows you to track your travel expenses making it easier to manage tax information. Enter the details of your trips by clicking Account then Trip Logs within your UnitWise account.

2. Sales Receipts and Invoices

When a customer pays in full for an order, a receipt is created, and an invoice will be generated if a customer places an order without paying. UnitWise users can generate an invoice by clicking on invoices within their account. Here you will be given a list of your customers with all their information. Once the customer has been selected, enter the product names, quantity, and sales total. From here your inventory on hand will automatically be updated to reflect.

3. Manage Inventory on Hand

Import your inventory orders directly from InTouch using your UnitWise account. You can import orders up to 45 days after shipping. This transfer will take place in the background of your UnitWise account so you can continue to manage other aspects of your MK business.

As you update or create invoices or sales receipts, your inventory levels will automatically update based on your products sold.

4. Personal Use and Demo Products

Track your inventory items under the Customer Center. Here you can view the purchase history of each of your clients. In addition to customers, you can create an account labeled Personal Use or Demo Products. You can then generate an invoice for that specific statement and view the total amount of products used.

5. Year-End-Tax Report

After you have reviewed your account information for accuracy you can then go to your account Home > Reports and run all reports in the Year End/Tax Section for your fiscal year. Remember that your Personal Use/Demo/Donations can be used as tax write-offs.

Your Heroes at UnitWise Are Here to Help

While we are not professional tax preparers, we will be here for you every step of the way. We want to ensure that your upcoming tax season is as stress-free as possible. If you have any question about our features or how they work, don’t hesitate to contact us.
