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!!

P241303_heroThe Natural Eye Kit contains everything you need to create the pretty, soft, and slightly sexy “natural eyes” you’ve seen on super models and celebrities and have always wanted to perfect for yourself.

An all-inclusive kit that includes nine essential shadows for all-over lid color, highlighting, smudging, and more.

Tips and Tricks

Choose the Natural Eye you desire and follow Jerrod’s step-by-step, easy to follow instruction cards to get the look!
Avoid eye shadow “drop-down” by applying your Natural Eye look first. Next, clean off any excess shadow from under the eye and use your foundation and powder! These steps will keep you flawless and faultless every time.
Prime your lids with eye primers, then witness shadows immediately intensify and blend-our shadow bases eliminate creasing and fading!
The crowning glory of every Natural Eye are lush lashes! Finish your look by applying two or three coats of Mascara for full lush lashes!

NYGARD 003 smallerWhat is the truth about makeup? Most women—even some little girls—wear it.

You’ve seen it all. You’ve seen the clear days, the blotchy days, the tanned days and the days that just look all wrong. Usually, it’s just a bit of blush, sometimes eyeliner, and then on occasion a full makeover. “Man!” You think to yourself. “Why is it so hard to stay clear and good looking?” So you apply your foundation and by the time you’ve put on eyeliner you wish you could just get back into bed and not meet anyone all day. One look in the mirror and you’re back to where you started. After all, who enjoys that pretty, made up face more than you? It’s the toil of woman.

The cosmetics industry makes billions of dollars annually. Fashion and Hollywood have set the standards for “beauty,” and most people agree with their taste. Women of all ages wear makeup! To most, it is important to be fashionable yet fashion is always changing. Funny thing about looking good, sometimes it’s looking like we want to look and others its looking how we think others would like us to look …

The beginning and the end of it is makeup gives us the confidence we might not have had was our face makeup free. I know that as a makeup artist when I do a persons face and they haven’t seen what i have been doing and then i show them, the look on their face when they are finished is priceless they look happy and there is a confidence there that wasn’t before. I have felt that before as well. I would sometimes wake up in a bad mood and then i would spend a good half an hour on my makeup and the end resulted in me feeling better because i had seen myself in a new light and i felt hot.

So in my humble opinion? Makeup is a very important feel good commodity in our daily lives!

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!!

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!!

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 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!!!
