Posts Tagged ‘Manhattan’

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

What do you think about eyebrows? Are they important to you?

If you think they are important than read on. Now that I specialize in eyebrow shaping (as well as makeup) I can see how important eyebrows are to the human face. I have seen my fair share of people without eyebrows whether it was of their own choice or because of some health reason. I have found that they are the frame to your face. They give expression to your face (not that other parts don’t) but they help with surprise and many facial expressions and when they look groomed they give your face that groomed clean look.

I have seen bushy eyebrows, barely there eyebrows and the perfect eyebrow. There are a few ways of keeping your brows from (as my husband and i put it) Attacking your face. There is waxing, threading and tweezing. I specialize in tweezing. Waxing isn,t good for your skin, and threading OMG it kills and makes you tear. i like tweezing coz it pulls out the hairs that you need and nothing extra. Personally i think i am pretty gentle and have been told i am but that is for you to decide. Trimming the brows is another part of the Shaping process and really cleans the brows up.

Duane Reade just opened what they call a Look Boutique which is like a mini sephora but nicer. We do skin analysis there for free – we can tell you if your skin is dehydrated by our hydrometer. We also have a 8x zoom machine which you can see your skin really close up and see everything from dehydration to sun damage – its really worth coming down to check it out. eyebrow shaping is also done there and no appointment is necessary – walk ins are welcome. Makeup consultations are a fun and informative way to get to know how to do your makeup either for everyday or for a special occassion and are free.

Hopefully we will see you there soon. Check us out on 8th Ave between w16th and w17th Aves in Chelsea.

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?

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.
