Shimmer, Sparkle & Shine this New Years Eve!!

December 28, 2009

Shimmer, sparkle and shine this New Years Eve! Ladies will often ask me for some simple ways to dress up their makeup for the holidays! If it is an important party or event I definitely recommend hiring a professional artist like myself to help you get fancy! This way you can be certain you will love the way you look!

If doing it yourself, here are some products, pics and tips to help you look fancy for your special night!

I LOVE this product! It is called “overshadow” and is designed to take your makeup from day to night. You just put it on top of your eyeshadow and it creates a beautiful shimmery finish…It is not glittery just shimmery which is a very subtle yet sexy way to be fancy! You can also use it on shoulders, cheeks and decolette to add a sophisticated shimmer!! You can find TheBalm at Sephora!

There are 4 shades…my 2 faves are “no money no honey” which is a beautiful ivory/gold shimmer and “if you’re rich I’m single” which is a little bronzey and great for a smokey look!

….remember to tap your brush out before you apply it otherwise you will have shimmer everywhere!!

Love glitter? Me too! MakeupForever makes some super fun and stand out glitters! A few ideas for glitter are to apply it with a wet brush on top of your eyeliner, on top of your eyeshadow or at the top of your cheekbones! You can find these Makeup Forever glitters at Sephora. More →

Beauty Goodies for Christmas!

December 18, 2009

Hi Ladies and Gents!

Women of all ages LOVE to get fun makeup and hair goodies in their stockings! I have put together some ideas for simple little stocking stuffers that the lady on your list will be sooooo excited to receive! They are little and fun and will be enjoyed all year long!!

All of these ideas are from MAC cosmetics! I am a freelance makeup artist which means I am free to use whichever product I choose! I just happen to love using MAC! They make exceptional products that make my job fun!

First of all, there are lots of  “holiday” kits out there right now but I would NOT recommend buying them. Sure they look fun and pretty but they just don’t work as well as the regular makeup! You are better off buying the products they always carry! OK, there is one exception! I LOVE the holiday pigment kits that MAC does over the holiday season!

These are the MAC holiday Pigments that I love! They look little but these will last almost forever!!! A little pigment goes a loonnnggg ways! This particular set is called 5 Sexpot Smokey Mini Pigments! So much fun and the perfect gift for the young lady on your list!

A great gift for ladies of any age is eye liner! Here are a few colors that are great neutrals and work on pretty much anyone!

Teddy; a beautiful bronzy brown

Duck; a rich brown that glides on easily

Engraved; a dark black waterproof liner that smudges beautifully

Prunella; a dark rich purple that is beautiful on any eye color

Lipgloss is always a great gift idea! Here are some of my faves from MAC

Pretty Plush; a soft barely there pink with a little bit of plumper in it….what woman doesn’t like plumper??!!

Love Nectar ; Can be pink, can be peach…always beautiful!

Beaux; The perfect neutral…a little bit brown a little bit gold…love it!

Viva Glam V; A great neutral pink. Looks great almost everyone!

I hope these ideas help you find something for the ladies on your list! If you have any questions or would like some more ideas for your lady feel free to email me! I am happy to help!

 Happy Holiday and Happy Shopping :)
