Snow day Feb 2010 037 resizedWow what a fun day!!

Don’t you just love the snow? I do, it makes me so happy! I was nervous to wake up today and look out the window in case it hadn’t snowed ;) . To my utter Glee not only was it snowing but there was already a layer on the ground. I couldn’t wait to go outside! Call me wierd but we never had snow like this in England. Maybe once when i was in 10th grade! we had a great time then but until now i haven’t seen snow like this. One damper was put on the day when i tried to put my 16 month old daughter in the snow (dressed warm) and she started screaming. She hates the beach (sand and sea) so i guess this is one more thing to add to it :( I guess when you have a kid its not as fun as when you are a kid!

Gonna go out with the hubby and build a snowman!!

Ciao

308TPG Pop Up shop 002 smallerThis morning I woke up with excited butterflies in my tummy. It was the Pop up Shop day!! which means i get to buy more makeup for less! Well of course coz I get nervous that everything will be gone before i get there i arrive bright and early at 11:30 (when it opens at mid-day). I met Michael and he’s really nice and friendly (thanks for making me feel comfortable). They had great products there and at amazing prices. It was held at the OCC studio which just opened at the end of October. I had a great time and saw some really nice people there. Michael went through my protfolio with me to share how I could make it better. He was brutally honest and I loved that because I need it in order to succeed in what I love doing most – Make up.

I Finally got the Stila Eyshadow Kitten which i have been lusting after for ages. I got a Stila Smudgepot in Purple from the barbie collection. I got Shadow shields which im really excited about, by-by to eyshadow fall down! Some plastic storage bags. Makeup remover, and a toner which i have wanted since the Makeup show NYC in May.

All in all it was a great experience and got some great stuff for my kit.

Thanks TPG u guys r great!!

_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.

wedding 007 smaller Yesterday dawned bright and sunny. I was in a great mood. I was ready to have a full day of doing makeup and making money! That is exactly what happened! I was standing all day and bending over to do peoples faces but i cane out with sore feet but a great satisfaction knowing i made people feel good about themselves and i had created some beautiful looks!! the theme of the wedding was teal/turquoise so i had a great time using my turquoise and silver eyeshadow.
Make Up For Ever’s eyeshadows are very pigmented and they glide on the eye easily and they look absolutely beautiful. I need to get more refills to put in my palate.

What fun that was!!! Working with beautiful women.

I love that they incorporated non Model Models who are breast cancer survivors. That is a great thing about NYGARD if you buy something from the store part of what you spend goes to Breast cancer research!

Lashes
One thing that i noticed while i was putting lashes on the girls is that the lashes that are not a full thick strip are much harder to put on. The corners don’t stick as well to the corner of the eye as well as the ones that have spaces in between!! If you see 101 has no space between the hairs but if you look at 113 there is so i prefer to use the 113 type! they stick better and are easier to appl

My friends Miriam Gober and Nussin Rieber are engaged!!

We had the Girls night out last night and unfortunately none of my friends came! I am not feeling so good towards my friends. I always make an effort to go out of my way for my friends but i guess my friends don’t feel the same way!

I really worked hard on this project and they just didn’t pull through!

Oh well i just know what not to expect!!

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!!
