Six gorgeous shades; Black Fire, Brown Blaze, Silver Spark, Violet Voltage, Blue Boom and Green Glow. They are the shades of an amazing concept by CoverGirl. They draw like a liquid line – so smoothly and have such intense color but they smudge like a pencil so you can make them smokey!! Ingenious or what? All the colors you see are the colors that every person can use not just a Makeup Artist.

Here are the swatches of color the brighter one has a flash and the dimmer one doesnt.

There isn’t much more I can say they speak for themselves!! Go get them and Enjoy!!

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!!

Last night I went to a shoot in the Bronx With Boytoyrocks.com. It was in a basement and was all very dark and mysterious. The theme of the shoot was goth sexy! I wasnt sure how the shoot would be. One of the models didnt turn up but the other model was Sarah Hartshorne from ANTM!! which was great! She is a really sweet girl and we had a great time together.

The make up was fierce!! Black and Red which was a lot of fun to do. I helped accessorize sarah and we had a lot of fun working together!!

Pics coming soon!!!

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!!

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 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!!!
