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.

This look i came up with coz i am working at the Jacques Townhouse at their beauty parlour and i did something similar to this and I loved it so i tried it with better products at home and here is the outcome.

The purple that I used is the Make Up For Ever’s very poplar color #92 and the 2 Golds that I used are OCC’s Loose colors in Twirl and Dope.

11pm on wednesday night and I’m really really inspired to do my makeup unfortunately there is no point coz as soon as I have done it it will have to come off my face!

It all started a while ago when i was tweeting (yes people i was on twitter) and I was looking at different makeup blogs and checking out different tutorials. Then I was checking out a palette that Make Up For Ever just put together and am totally lusting after its so bright and colorful and all the summery colors that one needs in their little makeup world. When it comes to Eyeshadows and MUFE the searching stops there! Their colors are vibrant and true to what you see!! Every time i went into their Flagship store in New York it reminded me why I love their shadows over any others (they are bigger and more pigmented)!! The people in the store are also really helpful and friendly. Its a small and quiet store in Downtown manhattan yet so much goes on there. I wish I still lived in NY just for that!!
Tell me you don’t want this!! These are the Color numbers if you want to get this palette together 26, 2, 99, 159, 18, 72, 92, 75, 91, 9. In order from back row left to right.

So anyway as I was saying about my inspiration, i went from place to place (online) just googling and searching makeup ideas and inspirations!! and this is why I LOVE Makeup so much. There is so much out there that can be created into a makeup look and honed and perfected into pure unadulterated beauty. Im probably waffling but my love and creativity at the moment are not being used because its so late and I have to wake up early but my heart is popping and I know I wont be able to fall asleep because my mind will be racing away at all the different makeup looks i can do in the morning and cant wait to try!

Ok ill stop! I really have to calm down and relax before bed.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and restful night (one that i wont be having)

Keep on shining and glowing

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!!

_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.

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!!
