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!!!

Beauty Obsession of the Day

"Every day it's something new with you!"I've been hearing this my whole life and to be honest?  It's true! Everyday I'm obsessed with a new product or idea or hack that I'm convinced I can't live without!  So everyday I'm going to (try to)  tell you about it!  Quickie posts. Here's today's- Bad Baby Hairspray Pens! If you're even close to my age you remember a time when hairspray was ginormous, I kept the 24 inch can of shaper in my duffle bag, and wielded it like a sword-

Well,...flip the switch chick, cuz this little can, can fit in your pocket: It's the size of a pen!
I ordered the hairspray and the dry shampoo which i use as a texturizer, and it's ahhhhhhhhhhmazing! The smell is to die for!
 I literally keep a little can of this in my change holder in my car just to freshen up my hair and make it smell great!

I'd like to thank the Academy.......

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to do makeup and hair for the Oscar's.
It was a long awaited dream of mine and I feel so blessed that it came true!
So in true Oscar fashion, I would like to thank some of the people that helped me achieve this dream, or at least made their products available for me to use at the Oscars.

First and foremost, I would like to thank Diane at KohGenDo Cosmetics for generously supplying the makeup I used.

Here are the products that I used to get those award winning looks:

I started the day by making sure everyone was relaxed and their skin was hydrated by giving each of my clients 10 minutes of down time with a Macro Vintage Essence Mask.

Then I primed their skin with

PeterThomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Primer

For those that needed a little extra help with sallow skin I used Maifanshi Makeup Color Base Lavender Pink

After priming the skin I used my favorite foundation Maifanshi Moisture Foundation.

I absolutely LOVE this foundation b…

Panic at the Disco folks !

Just thought I would let you know why you haven't heard a peep from me, ...
 I'll have to make this quick because I don't know how much I'll be able to get out before I'm kicked off.  I am "attempting" to write this blog post from my phone 📱 And unfortunately I'm finding out the hard way why people don't, because it's a bit of a crap game really, at any moment my app will just crash erasing everything I've written! That's happened more times than I'd like to admit.
It all started over the holidays when a certain someone who will remain nameless told me I could delete .... actually probably best if I keep this short, I'm surprised it hasn't crashed already.
   My computer broke, I didn't see a reason to get a new one because luckily I have a backup laptop.
 The other day that one died as well (the black screen of death is just as ominous as it sounds.)
Now this comes at a really bad time since it's been impossible t…
