Recent Before/Afters!

Hey guys so here are a couple of before and after photos!! The Purple makeup look is for Model Deziree, she was going to a Casting! The second one is for an opera singer that was performing in a musical on stage in a theatre. This type of makeup is a litte more dramatic because you want the person sitting way in the back to be able to see the makeup. Enjoy!!

Wedding Makeover

Hello everyone, a few days ago I did a makeover for a wedding. My client wanted a soft evening look. So I went with soft smokey eyes and an evening lipcolor. She is wearing painterly paint pot, her hightlight color is rice paper e/s her crease color is soba and carbon on her lids. I lightly contoured her face with a darker color foundation and set it with Mineralize skinfinish natural powder in Medium deep. I chose blush baby blush to add a soft flush to her cheeks. On her lips I used chestnut lipliner and nightmoth lipliner just on the outer corners of her mouth. then here lips were filled in with 1N lipstick from the N collection

My trip to the MAC pro store!

What I am wearing, Mac airbrush foundation in NC 50,bronzer, sweetness beauty powder blush,blacktrack fluideline, neon full force violet pigment as eyeliner, dazzlelash mascara,cranapple lipliner and show orchid lipstick.

Product Swatches

Transparent finishing powder, Line filler and Refined zone Review!

Prep+Prime Line Filler and Prep+Prime Refined Zone. Prep+prime line filler is a cream that gives a matte finish and blurs the appearance of fine lines.This should be applied as a last step after you have applied all of your makeup. I recommend using a very dense brush to apply this product, such as a mac #242 or #252 brush. Prep+Prime Refined zone is a light weight oil-free soy based emulsion that helps to minimize pores and control excess oil and shine. As soon as you apply it you can see the matte finish immediately. It is great for oily skintones as well as combination or dry skins that just have an oily t-zone. Cost for line filler $19.50 and refined zone is also 19.50.

Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder is a light wieight invisble powder used to set makeup. This powder is great for all skintones because it has no pigment in it. It's main ingredient is corn starch,which makes this powder super fine and silky.Cost is $21

My Skincare Regimen

My latest video features products that I use to take care of my skin. I used burts bees Soap bark and chamomile deep cleansing cream which has a cooling sensation, Burts bees peach and willow bark deep pore scrub, to hydrate my skin I use Aveeno Intense relief overnight cream. These products cost about $8.

Mac Volcanic ash, exfoliates the skin and has real volcanic ash in it which was used to cure skin diseases years ago. BB Seaweed clay mask by lush, this has real seaweed bits in it as well as Kaolin clay to purify the skin. Ayesha mask has clay, asparagus and kiwi in it and leaves the skin looking radiant, relaxed and refreshed. The lush facial masks cost about $7.50 a piece and the volcanic ash is $19.50 but was limited so it may be diffucult to find.

Angels on Bare skin facial cleanser by Lush. This cleanser has crushed almonds and lavendar in it and leaves the skin feeling soft. This product will un you about $13.
