Road to the Oscar's

It's a big big week here at InURfaceMakeup ! 
With the Makeup Show LA tomorrow, and The Oscar's and The Vanity Fair Party on Sunday yours truly is running around like the proverbial headless chicken!

 I was happy to host my good friend Stephanie of for the week leading up to the shows.
It was a whirlwind of makeup & stardust & glitter as far as the eye could see!

 Today I was fortunate to meet Jackie from Temptu who supplied me with the Air Pod system, which I L O V E! 
I am very excited to use this on my Vanity Fair clients and tell you all about it.

But, at the moment, I'm going to pause so that I can hear every word, from the great James Vincent! 

Stay tuned for so much more!!!!

Which Makeup Case Is For You ?

Okay, okay, okay.....i promise to blog more, and not get so caught up in work and getting work. So instead of big long winded (ehem, that's my middle name) posts, from now on you're getting more stream of consciousness blurbs and random thoughts.
Like this one-

I was on one of my Facebook group pages and responded to this post when halfway thru I realized, "this is such a common question I should do a blog post about it" So thanks to Misty Deupree for the inspiration

Misty DeupreeWhat is a good makeup (traveling) case that has a lot of compartments and space? And affordable

Okay I'm kind of a makeup case hoarder, they're like shoes to me, I can never get enough and love all of them in my own way!
Having said that,  

Kett makes an EXCELLENT one, this is actually my number one favorite ! 
 I get one every 2 years because the cobblestones on NYC streets literally pop the wheels off if you're working a lot. Now I know that doesn't sound promising but trust me when i say that I was BRUTAL on my case!
The reason I love it ? The price & functionality. 
It's retails for $120 ($100 at the shows) 
It has a ton of compartments, and the way they are tucked into each other makes this case super compact ( i can fit everything that i would normally fit in a suitcase into this tiny Kett Case!) here's the link: 
My one and only complaint would be that it needs different wheels, (in my case all terrain wheels,) but if you are lucky enough to drive a car to set, (and not hoof this all over the NYC subway system,) and the most action the wheels will see is strolling down a hallway .....this case will last your forever!

Kett Cosmetics did not pay me for an endorsement or furnish any free cases for review..........

ehem........but if you're listening Kett? I love your products and am more than willing to be seduced by some free schwag! 

stay tuned for the next case on my list!

makes me want to kiss the sky !

It makes my job so rewarding when I can reach my clients in such a way that they will take the time to write me a letter of recommendation.
 It makes me positively giddy to know that I have 34 of these letters (22 for makeup & 11 for makeup and hair and 5 more for makeup instructor!)

 So a big Achievement for me and a big Thank You !-  To all the Producers,
Directors, Agents, Photographers, Models, Actors, (MY AMAZING STUDENTS!)  and fellow creatives for all your wonderful feedback, it's nice to know that I've touched your life as much as you've touched mine.
Thank You

see these gorgeous recommendations here!

The Makeup Show - wrapping up part two

 I've been going to The Makeup Show NY since day one, and every year after, so it was strange seeing it in my new home, LA. To help make this an unforgettable event, one of my besties & fellow beauty blogger, Stephanie (@newbeautyreview) flew in from Arizona, and we were special guests of one of the artists I look up to most, makeup legend Sharon Gault, known to most of us simply as MamaMakeup(@Mama_Mu_Sharon).

Every show that Steph & I have ever gone to together, (and I think that's almost all of them), has been legendary, this was no exception.

with David from OCC @occmakeup

Doe Deere  creative goddess behind LimeCrime @limecrime

Lemme throw some pictures at you, just so you see what this amazing little circus is really is like, at a show!
Sheila McKenna for Kett Cosmetics


my personal "Anthony Robbins" & guru Crystal Wright  @Crystal_Wright

with Lauren (@QueenofBlending)

 The cast of characters was amazing, and I got to reconnect and network with so many talented people in the industry.

The one & only Sharon Gault (@Mama_Mu_Sharon) for RCMA

Some honorable mentions, a special thank you to the ladies at Skyn Demure(@SKYNDEMURE) for supplying an array of gorgeous temporary tattoos, that were unbelievable ! This is what they used for bait.....

 the tattoos last much longer and are more detailed than any temporary's I've used before. Check out the other styles at:

A big thank you to Parian Spirit for gifting me mini brush cleaner & super convenient brush cleaner wipes.  My favorite brush cleaner in portable wipes !

 And last but not least Tricia at Alcone who I'm not ashamed to admit,  I've missed since I moved to the West Coast. Not that Naime's & Nigel's aren't amazing, but I've pretty much memorized the entire Alcone catalog! Now I can put all that knowledge to good use with the Alcone at Home program which is way for pro artist to sell the products that they know & believe in, at Home Makeup Parties.

with the Man, the Myth, the Legend.....(@MrbillyB)

j'adore James Vincent!  @JVincentmakeup

All in all I had one of the most memorable shows ever thanks to Sharon & Stephanie, and everyone new that I've met, as well as all my old friends that came out to the Makeup Show.

See you next year!
