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.

 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!

The probability of love at first sight....

or how a shaving soap changed themy world.... I may have a problem balancing the girlie girl in me, with the cynical New Yorker? I don't usually think of myself as a hopeless romantic, but lately I equate everything to relationships, even blogging about products. As much as I'd like to be that wham bam thank you ma'am reviewer... you know, the one that gets the product and says "OK you'll have final copy in 3 days", I just can't. I need to fall in love with it, even if only for the moment, and for that I need to get to know you better.  Seriously, can you really get to know a anything in such a short time, enough to feel confident telling all your friends about it ?  Because that's what you are, you're my friends. 
And friends can smell BS a mile away.  So I'm not going to candy coat it, if I love it, I'll scream it from the rooftops, and if I don't....well.

Quick Tip Tuesday - unruly brows! Here is  a quick 5 min beauty tip that I use and think you'll love. If you've seen my blog before you know that I am more than a just a little obsessed, with Lastics Shave Soap.

Here's my routine.
You will need 1. A brow brush - the ones I use are either

 Nars #5 brow brush.  2. A brow pencil
I don't spend big money on this, the one I'm using for this video is from Daiso (it's $1.50 and I love it!)  3. A brow powder
 I am using Senna's brow palette because I want to use 2-3 colors so it looks natural and not one dimensional  4. A spooly or a toothbrush
to brush them into place and      

5. Here's the kicker, instead of brow gel, I use my Shave Soap from Lastics
 it holds them in place without feeling crunchy (plus it smells ahhhhmazing!)
