Crackle inspired with @Sugarpillmakeup

Minus the messy nail job, this red eye makeup look was inspired by my recently crackled Sally Hansen nails. The photo is not the best, but the eyeshadow resembled the nails. This is going to be as sweet as sugar (pill) for the holidays! Thanks, Amy Doan! Face:MAC Prolongwear NC42 mixed with MAC Microionized Airbrush […]

Summer is sizzling… Or is it crackling?

The first time I tried Sally Hansen’s crackle polish was botched. It appeared as if a five year old had poorly painted my nails. I had uses no base or top coats and applied OCC Makeup nail polish. The effect was disastrous. The second time I used Gold Antique, it was over a Sally Hansen […]

Mineral makeup

Technically all makeup is mineral makeup. Mica is a mineral powder that is used to create color. When people are searching for “mineral makeup,” they mean to say they want silicone free products.Companies such as Mary Kay market their products as mineral makeup, but their mineral eyeshadows contain a lot of non minerals and silicone […]

NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil

I think this was Brown or Herra. The NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil surprised me. I did not think the depth of color could compete with MAC Cosmetics, but it produced this vibrant pink. NYC Jumbo Lip Pencil is great for people on the go – a lot of color in a little stick. throw these […]

NSFW @OCCMAKEUP Lip Tar

See how bold and sassy this Lip Tar is? A tiny half bead covered all of both lips with leftovers. The color went on smoothly and had a glossy glow that contributed to the fullness of the lips. The face was prepped with typical eye cream and moisturizer. OCC Foundation in Y3 was sprayed very […]

MAC Blue Lip Mix vs @OCCmakeup RX Lip Tar

Today I completed some of my tasks. Had the lines not been long, the rest of my list would have been finished as well. After a long day of avoiding studying, I decided to have some fun. While I was not feeling “blue” (sad) I was feeling blue (feeling in the mood for the color […]

OCC Makeup Lip Tar

My @occmakeup lip tar six pack of primary colors arrived today. They threw in Dangerous instead of Lo-Fi. I am impressed with the coverage. The site says one tiny bead on moisturized lips, but application on myself required two beads on dry lips. It did not streak and provided more opaque coverage than Lime Crime’s […]

Dinair airbrush makeup test

Dinair is definitely light than MAC, which may be due to it being water rather than silicone based. It sprayed much easier, but the gun kept clogging quickly. The gun will have to be taken apart completely for cleaning. Only half the face was sprayed. The difference was slow and took seven drops. Coverage was […]

elf Studio 27 Piece Mini Makeup Collection review

The elf Studio 27 Piece Mini Makeup Collection is a bargain for only $15.00. The palette colors can be used to create looks that are natural, classic chic, pinup, and smoky. if you are looking for highly pigmented cosmetics, this is not a good option. If you are exploring becoming a makeup artist, this is […]

Eyes Lips Face

I was excited to receive my ELF kits today, but the big one was DOA (damaged on arrival). It is not salvageable. One of the larger powder samples cracked, so the powder get everywhere in the kit. It is stuck to the lip and emollient products. The rest of the powder was in the box […]

MAC Quite Cute lipstick

Very disappointed at MAC Cosmetics Quite Cute lipstick. It looks white on my lips. It’s definitely not like Lavender Whip or Lime Crime’s D’Lilac.

Model etiquette with Mireya – no pun intended

Many Orlando models forget their manners and exhibit a lack of professionalism when dealing with people who are not agencies but who can still assist them with their careers. There are many roles of people who can provide industry assistance including photographers, makeup artists, hair stylists, fashion stylists, talent scouts, and more. Orlando has a […]

Lime Crime makeup review – part i

Doe Deere — a/k/a Xenia Vorotova advertises on her blog that shipments are sent in a cute shipper (shipping box).  While I was not all that excited about a unicorn box, my box was plain white.  No big deal.  The YouTube videos and other product reviews referenced receipt of promo CDs, cards, and other items […]

MAC Cosmetics Prolongwear Foundation & Prolongwear Lipstick

> During a trial of the product, Prolongwear foundation did not blend easily. Application required a lot of brushing to properly blend the product. Once applied, the product was grainy and did not blend well on the skin. It was layered over Fix+ Spray and Prep and Prime Skin. There are few colors available, so […]
