Urban Decay
24/7 Super Stash
What it is:
A set of nine, mini-sized 24/7 eye liner pencils that includes four new, exclusive shades and five best-selling favorites.

What it does:
You asked for more! This rainbow of shades is the ultimate kit: the right balance of neutrals and brights for any look. Need to modernize your little black dress? Try bold strokes of gold, green, or blue shades for some exotic flair. Wearing that bold-printed tunic? Try smoldering layers of neutral Eye Pencils to add depth and gleam without competing. Small enough to fit in a wallet or slimmest of evening bags, these mini-sized pencils still feature the exact formula you love in Urban Decay’s full-sized 24/7 pencils: extra creamy, easy-glide, and waterproof. Use them in combination, use them alone, or give a few away. (Okay, don’t do that.)

A friend of mine gave me a tester of this and this morning i finally tried it!! It is really really good and gives a great cover and feels as light as a feather (actually lighter). i just brushed it on and saw the flawless effect one wants, immediately!

I would def recommend this to everyone out there!!

MAC dazzleglass creme! M∙A∙C cult favourite Dazzleglass with a creamier, smoother, but no less shiny or dazzling effect. For those who are drawn to the luxe of cream lips, but still want the dazzling allure of its inspiration, this is it.

I saw this the other day in Macy’s and i tried it on it is beyond gorgeous and slides on really smooth. The shine on this is awesome and the little specks of glitter in this is for the brave and bold people out there who love to be different and fun. It is not a sticky lipgloss but a very wet and smooth one.

I love it and have used it every day since I got it!!

It comes in 9 different colors.

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

Yesterday I was watching MTV and Alicia Key came on with her Superwoman video. Well im going to talk about her makeup a bit and criticize. Her foundation was great, her blush was great, but her eyes oh man not so good! They were all cakey and the fall down on her lashes was not cleaned up.

How does one remedy the dustiness from the eyeshadow on the top of the eyelashes?

Well you need to brush mascara on the tops of your lashes as well as the underside. Most makeup artist know this as a basic tip. Another cool tip on how to get eyeliner on the top lid waterline is to line your bottom waterline (the inside of your lashes at the bottom) and squeeze your eyes shut, beautiful results!

I’m on a roll!! Doing face charts is so fun. I have done four face charts since last night when I went to MAC to sign up for my MAC pro account! Which is very exciting. They are so friendly there, i walked in and asked if i could sign up and the girl that served me was so nice and friendly and she was all helpful. I asked her if i could have a face chart and she was like sure with pleasure and gave me a whole pack of 250!!! So yes i have some leeway if I don’t like what i do and decide to start a new one!!

Fun to fill in

Fun Flirty and Girly

if you are doing a fun, flirty, girly look. I tried out a really gorgeous pink (which happens to be my favorite color) and it really made the pink under it pop.

So there it is!!

Looking forward to my airbrushing course on Sunday with Orlando!!

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!!!
