Recognized as the European city of style, Berlin is the next stop for The Makeup Show. To debut on September 2011, The Makeup Show Europe will be embracing the international beauty & fashion capital of Germany, Berlin, to deliver the largest PRO ONLY driven beauty event. Join us at The Makeup Show as the top international industry artists and pro-driven worldwide companies present the newest products, seminars, forums and hands-on workshops. Fill your two days with inspiration, education and community. Learn about the newest lines and product launches. Explore makeup workshops and discover school programs. Network with your peers. Develop new relationships with the companies that have a growing prominence throughout the professional beauty industry.

This show is a MUST for makeup artists! It is a pro oriented show where the workshops are given by the best in the industry! While I was living in NY I would go to the show there and listen in on the lectures (which sounds boring but were really informative and interesting!) and would gain so much from the artists who were talking. Dany Sanz from Make Up For Ever totally amazing, David Klasfeld from OCC another insipration, James Vincent just totally ingenious and of course my makeup teacher Orlando Santiago to name but a few of their educators.

The past 10 days have been fraught with Makeup, Hair and nails. Between 5:30 pm to 7 and then 7:30 to 9 around 150 very sexy and stylish women have made their way into the Jacques Townhouse beauty parlour. Makeup was provided to us by ModelsOwn brand and we have had a great time using it. Among everything going on which included a wardrobe of wonders with many different style dresses to try on and model for a Fashion shoot with your friends there were cupcake decorating sessions and hairband making sessions. There were also trend talks given by people who are the best in their field. Wednesday 20th July saw Glamour Magazine providing extra special nail artists.
Tuesday 26th July brought Look Magazing and Gara Rufa fish Pedicures. A little on those… there is a tank with a whole bunch of fish in it and you put your feet in the water, which is constantly being filtered and your feet are sprayed with disinfectant before you put them in the water, and the fish eat all the dead skin off your feet. Ok so it does sound realy gross and scary! and isnt that the reason why people dont wanna go in the sea? who wants to be eaten by fish? Its a very interesting feeling when they first start munching – NO it doesnt hurt :) it tickles immensely and it feels wierd. After a while you do get used to it and can relax.
On the second to last night of the Townhouse I found crackle nail polish! So having seen it advertised I just had to try it. Using a hot pink as a base I put the black one on and while it dries you can watch it crackle away! Really interesting so i looked it up to see how it works and here it is: Crackle nail polishes work the way a traditional nail polish isn’t supposed to. A traditional nail polish is supposed to dry slowly and uniformly across the nail in a smooth, even application. Crackle nail polishes have added a special solvent called ethanol alcohol that allows the polish to dry quickly and unevenly. There it is really interesting and fun. Go ahead and try it its fun to watch. The Models Own brand is cheap and cheerful and they have great colors!

And of course the Most important part of the Townhouse was to promote their cider called Jaques which is a fruity cider and there are 2 to choose from one is an apple pear one and the other is cherries and summer berries. Note: they are not suitable for vegetarians and are not Kosher.

Here are a few pictures that I took.

MAC Surf The Ocean Crushed Metallic Pigments

What MAC says about them: A style-wave of four limited edition shades of crushed metallic pigment individually presented in a see-through stack. Cool as water, blue and aqua-green shades shimmer amidst bronze, silver, and platinum frost. Limited edition.

What I say about them: I have been craving these Pigments for a while and went to the Covent Gardens MAC store and they were sold out :( so i went to Westfield this morning yup on a Friday morning and went for a visit to MAC. Thank goodness they were not sold out! I got them!! so i have been playing around with them this afternoon and to my happiness the color payoff is gorgeous! really really love them!

Because I was at Westfield I couldn’t help but stop in to Inglot cosmetics another brand everyone should buy. And got a few eyeshadows there. The brightness of their colors and the range of colors is absolutely amazing! So as makeup days goes it was a great one :)

One more thing! Clinique in House of Fraser has a giveaway today!! either in the one in Westfield or on Oxford st. Go to the counter and “check in” on your BlackBerry through places and show it to the Beauty Advisor there and get a free Airbrush Undereye Concealer!! I did it go for it!!

It was a 1 all draw against the USA but it was fun watching it with friends at Abi’s house!!

Well i have had one of the worst evenings of my life!!!

It started well with me washing all my brushes coz I had a makeup job this evening. I cleaned my airbrushing machine and tidied my case up and put everything that was in my handbag into the makeup case all the lipglosses that were floating around the house and all over my bags.
My hubby came to pick me up because we were going to visit my grandparents in Manhattan. We put the suitcase in the back of the car and we were off. had a great dinner with the grandparents and my daughter was acting all cute which was perfect. We drove home and i didnt end up needing my makeup just yet coz my friend was running late so we went home first. Got out of the car and i ask my hubby where is my makeup case? he looked and it wasnt there. wioth heavy hearts we took my daughter inside to put her to sleep and while my hubby did that i went back out to look through the car (not a huge car) still not there. OMG basically all my makeup that i have bought throughout this past year lets say it totals near $3000 has been stolen. I am totally dying and stressing out. I dunno what to do? All i have now is one lip gloss and one bronzer. I bought over $100 of makeup last week! I am so stressed! I cant do my makeup for work tomorrow!! What am I going to do?

Help Help Help

My husband was so great he went back to look for it and filed a police report for me!!

Purple lab at the W 014 2Last night there was a Purple Lab cosmetics FW party in the W Hotel Hoboken, NJ.

I went as their makeup artist as we would be doing free makeovers!! Now what could be wrong with makeovers right? NOTHING!!! We had such a good time last night. Their products are totally amazing and fun. They are not cakey or heavy. They are light-weight and fresh. The looks that you get from their products is fresh and perfect for the new season coming up – Spring!! One of our makeover-ees, Michael – yes a guy couldn’t get enough of the foundation Silk Sheets, Which is infused with real silk and it smells great. He couldnt get over how it smelled and wanted to pay for one right then and there, as we weren’t selling we told him to come to the party that Purple Lab is having in honor of their HSN debut so hopefully he will be there tonight!!

Party on people and i hope you enjoy the purple lab cosmetics as much as i did!!
