I bought this set on Thursday last week when I went shopping and I love it!! It is the perfect pink set for your lips. I had been looking for a good pink that is not too light and not too dark and this one fits just perfectly!! Th only problem is that it’s a limited edition for the holidays!!

Pink puts a spell on you, and with its trio of Dream Lipstick (pink Frost), Dervish Lip Pencil (Pink & promo-sized) and Baby Sparks Dazzleglass (gorgeous and sparkly and pink), this lip kit is no different. Comes in a small, stylish rectangular makeup bag of polished silvery-pewter vinyl, the zip adorned with a round bead and grosgrain ribbon detail. Limited edition.

_POC2155 resizedHad a great shoot in Manhattan on Friday. The girl i did makeup on was really pretty and had great great skin. We shot at the top of a building and the views were amazing if a little terrifying, I’m afraid of heights. We shot on this teeny tiny porch on the 20th floor! oh man i was wetting myself!! lol

I used the HD makeup foundation by MUFE on her face and I love it!! It is a great foundation and has great results, great coverage.

flag-south-africaIn less than a month we will be going away to South Africa!! So very excited!!!

pore perfectionI used this yesterday and was pleasantly surprised about the end result!! It looked amazing and my pores were def less visible! the next person to test it on would be my hubby to see how it makes his pores look.
It isn’t the cheapest product on the market but i would def save up to add this to your makeup bag (and mine)
Smooth on a little Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion before foundation (or alone!) to totally minimize the look of pores and fine lines. The velvety, paraben-free formula flashes down to a soft-matte finish, without the greasy, heavy feel sometimes associated with foundation primers. The result? Flawless skin with an airbrushed look and feel. Foundation applies smoothly, evenly, and won’t fade away. Ideal for oilier skin, but dry complexions who want pore perfection will love it, too.

The convenient squeeze tube includes a twist-up dispenser (like school glue!) for easy portion control.

Two unique finishes of Complexion Primer Potions are available. For skin that feels brighter and tighter, try our Brightening formula.

Tips: A little goes a long way! A pea-sized drop of Complexion Primer Potion is all you need to perfect your whole face. Or, try just a touch in the areas where you need it most.

NYGARD 003 smallerWhat is the truth about makeup? Most women—even some little girls—wear it.

You’ve seen it all. You’ve seen the clear days, the blotchy days, the tanned days and the days that just look all wrong. Usually, it’s just a bit of blush, sometimes eyeliner, and then on occasion a full makeover. “Man!” You think to yourself. “Why is it so hard to stay clear and good looking?” So you apply your foundation and by the time you’ve put on eyeliner you wish you could just get back into bed and not meet anyone all day. One look in the mirror and you’re back to where you started. After all, who enjoys that pretty, made up face more than you? It’s the toil of woman.

The cosmetics industry makes billions of dollars annually. Fashion and Hollywood have set the standards for “beauty,” and most people agree with their taste. Women of all ages wear makeup! To most, it is important to be fashionable yet fashion is always changing. Funny thing about looking good, sometimes it’s looking like we want to look and others its looking how we think others would like us to look …

The beginning and the end of it is makeup gives us the confidence we might not have had was our face makeup free. I know that as a makeup artist when I do a persons face and they haven’t seen what i have been doing and then i show them, the look on their face when they are finished is priceless they look happy and there is a confidence there that wasn’t before. I have felt that before as well. I would sometimes wake up in a bad mood and then i would spend a good half an hour on my makeup and the end resulted in me feeling better because i had seen myself in a new light and i felt hot.

So in my humble opinion? Makeup is a very important feel good commodity in our daily lives!

Last night i was watching this music video on MTV and its a very disturbing video. As a Jew it really fell close to home. It was Rhianna telling someone to kill her and 3 Russians looking like Nazi’s and at one point there was gas going into the chamber she was in it was colorful and all that but still i didn’t like the connotation it was very offensive and in bad taste.

Just had to get that off my chest!!!

mineralized eye shadowA sheer, pearled, mineralized powder Eye Shadow with two shades baked together in one pan. Superfine, lightweight: provides a softly tinted, reflective shimmer on the skin with a delicate sense of dimension. Subtly builds colour and shine. Can be worn on face, eyes or body.

It comes in four colors:
Mineralize black w/ gold bronze pearl (Frost)
Mineralize black w/ pinkish purple pearl (Frost)
Mineralize black w/ silver pearl (Frost)
Mineralize black with blue pearl (Frost)

I bought it in the black with the blue pearl. It is a gorgeous color and can be used either wet or dry and as a liner as well as an eyeshadow.
The only problem with it is that it was a limited edition and is not sold anymore! I went to macy’s to go buy it and the woman said that there wasnt anymore, but i went back later and the woman had it. I now regret not buying it in all colors!!
