The response from the first tutorial was really nice and positive thanks everyone for your great feedback.

I am already coming up with a new look for the next tutorial which is going to be a lot more complicated but the effect will be stunning!! The only thing I need is a better webcam/camera so that is what I am waiting for!

Thanks again for all your amazing support!!

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?

pore perfectionI used this yesterday and was pleasantly surprised about the end result!! It looked amazing and my pores were def less visible! the next person to test it on would be my hubby to see how it makes his pores look.
It isn’t the cheapest product on the market but i would def save up to add this to your makeup bag (and mine)
Smooth on a little Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion before foundation (or alone!) to totally minimize the look of pores and fine lines. The velvety, paraben-free formula flashes down to a soft-matte finish, without the greasy, heavy feel sometimes associated with foundation primers. The result? Flawless skin with an airbrushed look and feel. Foundation applies smoothly, evenly, and won’t fade away. Ideal for oilier skin, but dry complexions who want pore perfection will love it, too.

The convenient squeeze tube includes a twist-up dispenser (like school glue!) for easy portion control.

Two unique finishes of Complexion Primer Potions are available. For skin that feels brighter and tighter, try our Brightening formula.

Tips: A little goes a long way! A pea-sized drop of Complexion Primer Potion is all you need to perfect your whole face. Or, try just a touch in the areas where you need it most.

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!
