The long awaited post about THE MAKEUP SHOW !

I know, I know,..... it's been forever since my last post, and I could make excuses and say " a cross country move, a breakup, another move, (not necessarily in that order)...sometimes life gets in the way".....
but truth be told, I got sooooo much loot at the makeup show that I wanted to be able to actually use it, and not just on myself, but on my clients, so that when I spoke to you about it, I'd actually have something to say.

So without further adieu, I give you ..... The Makeup Show LA Bloggger Bag

There was so much in this "goodie bag" that I almost don't know where to start.
 I have a few favorites that I could go on and on about so I'll leave those for last. I will say this, there are some things that I selfishly will keep in my own makeup bag that my pro-kit will never know about!!!

Annabella Sciorra & Gypsy Sparkle

One of the perks of doing hair and makeup for Hollywood Royalty, is the ability to bring people together who's paths might otherwise never have crossed.....
 Such is the case with Annabella Sciorra (@ASciorra) and my sister's company, Gypsy Sparkle (@GypsySparkle).







 As many of you know I am working with the mega-star on a new feature film called "The Maid's Room", where I am the Dept. Head of Makeup & Hair.


Annabella was  picked as this years Mermaid Queen at the 30th Anniversary Mermaid Parade, in Coney Island !

As a Brooklyn native, I grew up loving this parade & everything Coney! For those of you that don't know about the parade, here's a little background.

  click here for info about The Coney Island Mermaid Parade
The Mermaid Parade celebrates the sand, the sea, the salt air and the beginning of summer, as well as the history and mythology of Coney Island, Coney Island pride, and artistic self-expression. The Parade is characterized by participants dressed in hand-made costumes as Mermaids, Neptunes, various sea creatures, the occasional wandering lighthouse, Coney Island post card or amusement ride, as well as antique cars, marching bands, drill teams, and the odd yacht pulled on flatbed.


Ms Sciorra was a bit apprehensive about her post because she didn't have a costume, that's when I thought of my super talented sister, Niki Katsikis, who owns a company that makes burlesque costumes and does custom orders.
 I am proud to say that her company, Gypsy Sparkle will have the honor of dressing Annabella for this years festivities in a custom made creation.
By collaborating with Ms. Sciorra, Niki has designed something one of a kind to resemble the Goddess of the Sea. I have no doubt that this ensemble will be the talk of the boardwalk for years to come!

I am so excited to see the end result and watch as Annabella wears my sister's designs.
Congratulations to Annabella on her appointment as Queen, and to my sister and Gypsy Sparkle,
 I am so glad that I could help bring you both together.

-Stay beautiful !

My 4 favorite products and the cheat sheet to the ZenMed Giveaway.

This is my quick introduction to the ZenMed Skincare Collection and Giveaway, and my top four products.
 Because that's how many you will get, if you win my Giveaway!
(Which let me tell ya, it's not  easy to narrow down.)

So I'm here to help you "navigate" your way  a little.  in other words, a Cheat Sheet.  The more I use this the more I fall in love with it!  I want to order their HD Powder by the trunk full! It is so fine milled that it literally makes me look photo shopped.  oh, and i had a really embarrassing realization...

Turns out I really dig BB cream now. I'm almost embarrassed to say this because I spent so many years thinking it was just a so so tinted moisturizer. Or maybe it's just this Complexion Perfection, but this is kind of the bomb! I have seriously been wearing this every day and i swear my skin looks younger and lighter without all that heavy foundation. (not that mine was ever "heavy" errrherm. !. ) but it's just nice…

This is what Natural feels like

A sneak peek for what's coming up.....
