Natural beauty naturally attained with Mac Cosmetics

Women are often compared to unrealistic ideals of what women should be in a physical sense. These portrayals are perpetuated by the media’s plea for sex to sell products. Bra ads use teenage girls, which precludes women in their 40s and now in their 20s from feeling sexy. The key to feeling sexy is recognizing […]

Crackle inspired with @Sugarpillmakeup

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 […]

Loose vs. Pressed Powder

Clients ask if I prefer, as a freelance makeup artist in Orlando, loose or pressed powders. Personally, I prefer loose. I spent an entire day crushing my pressed powders to make them loose. The advantage of loose powder, for me, is flexibility and control. I can get more pigment on my brush with a mere […]

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 […]

Cheap makeup artists

See the full gallery on Posterous “You get what you pay for.” Cheap is not the best. Good makeup is definitely not cheap. Higher quality, higher performance brands are used by professional artists. “Affordable,” or “over the counter” brands may offer pretty colors, but they typically do not survive the weather, set lights, or sweat.

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 […]

MAC Cosmetics Summer Shower

  MAC Cosmetics Summer Shower in the Fashion Flower collection is also disappointing. It is an icy iridescent bluish color when on my arm, and I was told it is pink on the lips. It is no Lime Crime Mint to Be… sad face…

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.

Eyebrows – taming of the shrew

Walking around the mall, at schools, or even downtown Wall Street Plaza, a noted Orlando trend is unkept eyebrows. That is correct.  Orlandoans are trending unkept, untamed, ungroomed eyebrows. If the price of professional waxing is not friendly with purse strings, a free alternative is tweezing. Tweezing requires daily maintenance to combat strays that sprout overnight. Missing one day […]

Psychedelic trip hop funk

Slip and slide down the psychedelic funk train where funk is fabulous. Swirly, twirly, iridescent colors infuse the eyes. Pearlized pigments give skin a healthy, natural glow. Add pearlized pigment to your favorite moisturizer to create a new aura. If your skin is very dry, you can add the pigment with a little essential oil. […]

Smokey, soft, sexy

Day dreaming of all the pretty colors and trouble one can get into with makeup. Smokey smoothness, soft and subtle. Natural lip color. Let the black eyeshadow fade into the lid. Purple is dusted on the lower lid to soften the black. Smolder is smudged into the waterline. Coy Girl is dragged and blended over cheekbones.   When she was […]

I can if I want to

  Why are these questions important? If your personality is that of a very religious person, purple lipstick may be out of your comfort zone and may make you self conscious. If you look over 40, certain shades of purple may appear too juvenile. If you work at a courthouse, well, the judicial staff may […]

Emily Maynard’s soft, green smoke

Pink cookies in a plastic bag…

Need a nice eye makeup look for Easter morning at church? How about mother’s day? A nice pastel, crisp, clean look like Doris Day? Pink is pretty but can […]

Beware the ides of March are upon us

Building the proper foundation – part 1

A noted trend in Orlando is wearing the wrong shade of foundation. Many people overcompensate for when they think they will be tan due to the Orlando sun, and they wear colors that are either too pink or too yellow.  Finding the right foundation shade is very tricky, but the best thing to do is to purchase a few […]
