Sephora Prisma Chrome Eyeshadow


After the holiday I had the itch to buy some new makeup (like I need more makeup)!  I went to one of my favorite stores Sephora and found a new product "Prisma Chrome Eyeshadow" they are luminous eyeshadows with a high shine to them.  I fell in love with every color but just purchased three to try them out Shimmery Sand 10, Bronze Brilliance 15, and Moon Glow 35.  I loved them so much I went back a purchased Emerald Facet 25 and Sapphire Shine 30.  The shadows will run you $15.00 each and they are a staple in my kit!  Did I say I love them!!!


Apply a prime to your eye before your eyeshadow is always a must!  This will assure your eyes lasting all day. Urban Decay and MAC Cosmetics make great eye primers Urban Decay has no color so it can be used on any skin complexion  MAC's primer comes in many color ranges that will fit you.   For intensity use a brush like MAC 252,spray brush lightly with water brush eyeshadow then apply.

Spring Fling

When I think spring lip color I think soft light colors pastels like peachy nudes, soft almost bare pinks as well as lovely nudes. Soft is a safe way to go but this year I want women to take a chance, and happy was I to see that COLOR was in the forecast for spring 2012!  Women....Don't think what you can't do think what you want to do!  So many of my clients talk to me about not being courageous enough to wear color on their lips I don't put limitations on my makeup until I try them first.  So ladies don't be shy let it all hang out!  Make your lips POP with the warm weather, have fun and experiment with vibrant corals, lovely shades of red and bold pinks!   Just have fun with your lips and know it can always be wiped off. 
Now wearing a lip color will call for a couple of easy steps:

1.   Always moisturize and exfoliate your lips.

2.   To help with bleeding lipstick apply lip color then take a sheet of tissue (1ply) place of lips then apply a thin layer of translucent powder and apply lipstick again.  Also applying your lip pencil (same color of lipstick) to the entire lip helps as well. 

3.   Not all of us are artist or even have a steady hand so always have Q-tips, makeup remover and foundation on hand.  It is easy cleaning up any uneven lines around your lips.

Following these steps will assure you having success in your fun journey for that perfect lip color.

Emareld City

Spring 2012 is calling for some really beautiful looks.  One look that is really going to be popular is "Extreme Smokey Eyes" This is a look that I love and never goes out of style for the right occasions. 


I would like to thank my volunteer model Crystal for letting me recreate this look!

 I call this extreme smokey eye  Emerald City here Crystal wears a beautiful smokey green (MAC humid eyeshadow) eye with pale matte lip and peach cheek.  Crystal’s hair is in a beautiful faux bob done by Meatta B.

Dresses to Impress

I have always been a sucker for a beautiful dress and this year the ladies at the Golden Globes went hard!  The dresses were just beautiful and so many to choose from but the four here caught my eye. Bright reds and blue's ruled the night but you could never go wrong nudes!

Oldies But Goodies....

A few months ago I had a makeup bendge.....  I went HAM! I had a Makeupgasam (as my girl Jetta would say) when I came across; NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliners, my beau, Christian Dior 5 palette shadow compacts and last but not least my FAV... Bioderma makeup remover.  I just could not past with out buying them.

 They were very rich, vibrant and most importantly long-lasting.  The liners will run you $23.00ea.

 Dior shadows are just to die for pricing them at $58.00ea color palette #609 and #809

Bioderma Crealine H2o Ultra-mild non-rense Face and Eye Cleanser $25.46
This stuff removes anything!  I love it on shoots and just for myself!
