Wow what a week this one has been! Been on set all week shooting!
Crazy crazy stuff but it has been great meeting all these new people and giving my card out (hoping).

Its amazing to use my airbrush system and see the results. They are absolutely amazing. Its like using photoshop but not on the computer. All the retouching people will be out of jobs soon. It literally erases all imperfections and comes out great on the camera! The Airbrushing foundation that I have been using is by OCC and everyone loves loves how it feels when it is being applied. They say it’s a cool spray that feels really good and very pampering. Every time i told my models that I was going to Airbrush them their faces glowed from excitement. They all loved it and looked amazing. It is quick and easy way of applying makeup and I love doing it.

The Make Up For Ever HD finishing powder is the most amazing Product! It goes on clear even when you keep re-applying all day, which i have been doing all week. So far it has worked up to what i expected and more. Everyone that i used it on loved it, the texture, the way it felt once applied, and how it looked (or didn’t look)

~~GOOD NEWS~~
Next month one of my shoots that i did in June will be in 3 magazines! Oh how exciting? I went insane when i found out! THREE Magazines! Wow as soon as i know i will let you all know!

Im doing a Fashion show next thursday night and fri morning! for an opening for a store at Times Sq!

So that is all for now.
Wishing all a restful night!!

Airbrush
I can officially do airbrush makeup! I am very excited.
Make up is an art in itself. It surely enhances the appeal and gives you a dignity in society that helps you retain self confidence. Make up is done to make you, you and not someone else. The look that the cosmetic gives you depends on the way you use it and not on how expensive it is. There are different make up tools and their correct application gives the best results.
Women have a right to look beautiful. And to beautify them more they use cosmetics. Every female, girl or women uses cosmetics, some may use eye liners, blush on or mascara and lipstick but the basic thing is to learn to use them correctly.
For the best results of applying cosmetics is skin cleanliness. Healthy skin needs daily cleansing, toning and moisturizing
There are women who are not beautiful but still they look attractive because they know how to apply make up. They sure know the art of caring themselves, and can make heads turn in their direction despite their ordinary looks.
To look beautiful is the dream of every woman because women love to be praised. Its her right, every person has some elements of beauty which needs to be polished and groomed even those flawless models. Makeup plays very important role in the beauty of a woman. Beauty and Makeup serve to one another. They form the most integral bond together. You can become beautiful by applying the right makeup. Makeup application in itself is an art which can be conquered easily. What you need is the right source of information for makeup and beauty tips.
So first thing here needs to be addressed is selection of appropriate makeup technique whether we need to still rely on old traditional makeup techniques or we should move to new emerging makeup techniques which celebrities and models use? Now there is another choice when it comes to airbrushing makeup. What is that? Airbrush makeup is a great alternative to regular make up. Airbrush Makeup leaves the skin looking flawless and silky smooth and has long lasting staying power. There are special foundations especially designed for airbrush application. Applying airbrush makeup requires the use of certain tools to get that look you desire. Foundations, blush and eyes shadow can all be used when applying make up using the airbrush method.
Airbrush makeup has been getting a lot of buzz in the media lately. There have been TV shows that feature the benefits of airbrush makeup. Airbrush makeup has been around since the 1930’s. Makeup artists on the set of “Ben Hur” used airbrush makeup on the hundreds of extras that were on the set. Since then, cosmetic formulas have been evolving and designed exclusivly for use in the airbrush. Airbrush makeup is now the preferred method for professional makeup artists. One of the main reasons for this trend is the evolution of high definition TV and photography. Traditional makeup can look even across the face to the naked eye, but when viewed through HD TV and digital photography, the foundation can look uneven, streaked or splotchy. With airbrush makeup, the liquid color goes on in fine microdots that mimic color pixels used by technology. The tiny dots lay on the surface of the face so smoothly, the finish is most commonly described by everyone who sees it as “flawless” or “porcelin smooth”. Airbrush foundation does not clog pours. It lays on top of the skin and allows it to breath. If that wasn’t enough reason to use airbrush makeup, here is another significant reason: it is sanitary and germ free. Airbrush makeup goes from the bottle, that is never touched by human hands, to the clean airbrush and sprayed directly onto the face. Nothing but air and makeup touch the face. I use the airbrush products from OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) which use no animal products or derivatives at all. It feels great going on and it doesn’t require you to stretch your skin at all. Women who are sensitive about stretching the skin around their eyes will appreciate that! You have total control over how much or how little goes on. With just a few drops, the coverage is very light and sheer. With a little more on problem areas, it can cover blemishes and dark circles under the eyes. The result is a smooth even finish that can last up to 18 hours. Airbrush foundation is perfect for wedding makeup, TV, print, runway or films. The bottom line is the finished result: A flawless, stunning, beautiful face. I am excited to share my experience and expertise to help you with airbrush makeup.

I am really excited for the airbrushing course I’m taking in the morning! My teacher will be coming to my house to teach me OMG I’m really really excited.

Wishing everyone a great Sunday!

I’m doing a shoot next week so i had to get some HD powder. So off i went this afternoon to the MUFE flagship store in manhattan. When i was there i saw a great look that really inspired me to try!

i think it is such a clean and amazing look i will have to try it soon!

After i got my HD powder which i’m told is great I walked across Union Sq to Sephora (one of my fave stores!) I love to just mess around with the makeup there and try new things out. I tried out the Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Podwer and OMG!! I love it. The texture of the powder is so light and it goes on so smoothly and really makes your face look amazing. Thank goodness I didn’t have anything on my face so that i could try it out! I’m really excited about it! When i get a little more money i’m def gonna splurge on all four colors for my kit!! Well there we have it. My input for today!!

I woke up this morning and asked my husband what kind of makeup he wanted me to do today. He said blue. So i took out my Make Up For Ever eyeshadow palette coz thats where my blues are and i did a great look. I remembered that my friend Naomi had given me a Glimmerstick eyeliner in blue and i tried it and it was surprisingly really good!! It glides on really easily and smoothly and the color was perfect.

I would def recommend people use it!!!

Good morning my beautiful readers just a reminder in this cold weather to dress warm and keep toasty!!

<3 Mascara <3
This has to be my fave product of them all! It helps open the eye, it defines the lashes and makes them curly an appear longer.

Ways to put it on that make your eyelashes go on for miles and curl!!
first things first you need need need an eyelash curler. Start at the root of your eyelash and press down and hold for 3 seconds, then move a little further up the lash towards the tip and do the same and then once more at the tip and curly eyelashes here you are!! then if you have some fall down from the eyeshadow and your lashes look a bit “dusty” sweep mascara on the top part of your lashes to darken and then go for the usuall sweep on the bottom of the top eyelashes! wait for the first coat to dry and then sweep on a second coat.

Some of the mascaras i have tested.

Dior Backstage – it is a great mascara and does amazing things but it is on the expensive side. So far its my fave mascara wand brush!!

Lancome Hypnose – Also a great thickening and curling mascara i loved it. but again its on the expensive side.

MAC Zoomlash – Good mascara but i wouldnt neccesarily get it again not too expensive.

Maybelline Lash Stilleto – Love that mascara and its a great price. It def does wonders for the length and color of your lashes and the brush is a great brush and the mascara really does leave a patent look o your lashes.

Cover girl eyelights Mascara – Love this one as well, it has a little bit of a sparkle in it that goes with different colored eyes. i use the one for the green eyes and it works really well with the brown eyes that i have. the brush is also a great brush.

Thats it for now but feel free to post some of your fave mascaras and tell us why!!
