Joico Product Review

This is a product review for Joico's K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor and K-PAK Protect & Shine Serum. Everyone knows that protecting your skin from the sun is VERY important, so why not your hair? You hair needs to be protected as well, and K-PAK has a great line of products that will protect your hair from the sun and all the potential damage. After all we already use heating/styling/dyeing products that could potentially damage hair so why not protect it all we can :)
I recommend using these products, if you find that they are to costly, just use it every other day or once a week, instead of daily. If you take care of your hair, your hair will take care of you :P

Base: MAC Bare Canvas
Shadows: MAC Llama, symmetry
Eyeliner-MAC Nightsky (optional)
Lips-Avon nude lipgloss
Liner-Maybelline Liquid liner(I don't like it much, its too flat in color :(

Mascara-Clinique Lash Doubling and Primer

Hairspray By Request

Here is a tutorial inspired by the movie Hairspray. I haven't seen it yet, I think im going this week to check it out. YAY!!!
Anyway, here is my tutorial on how to do the pouf and piggy tails. You can also turn this into a french twist like Angelina Jolie too. Very sleek and simple. :)

Color Swatches for 3D and Painterly

I found this on youtube. Figured this will help someone out there. I haven't seen them yet, i'll probably go next week and check them out.

DNA Perfume??

Your DNA as a Fragrance - Smell Yourself Sexy

(TrendHunter.com) A company called My DNA Fragrance claims that it can develop a perfume for women or cologne for men based on your DNA. The customer submits a swab of saliva to the company and there you go, you have your own customized scent. Hopefully our DNA smells wonderful...
Here is my comment on this.. LOL.. I smell and thats why I wear purfume and body spray.. Anyone try this out yet :P

Free Shipping.. I know you are going to order anyway, might as well save on shipping. Can I recommend Vanilla Pigment? I never run out of pigments.. but I'm actually almost out. I have about a 1/4 tsp left!!! Isn't that crazy. I think it's going to last me ohh about 6 months..lol
If you have pigments you know how they last forever!!!!

Just in time. If you are like most, pay day is the 1st. So on the second of August you can take that paycheck down to MAC for some kool new stuff. Or you can just ask work to pay you in MAC MONIES ..LOL... aww...Rent is due too.. sooo is it gonna be shelter or necessities? :P Lucky for us Painterly is a PERMANENT LINE :)
Rumor has it this will replace the MAC Paints, the ones in the tube. I don't know for sure, I haven't really kept up on this one. I hope Bare Study is like Stilife, and Painterly is like Bare Canvas. I marked off the two that I think are going to be most popular. I saw these (from Novel Twist)at Nordstroms last week and they were HUGE. The pot was much larger than the fluid lines, but in that same type of glass container. And its about $1.50 more here in the US compared to the fluidliners.mmm I might have to try that stuff on my waterline. Well I just thought I'd update you all about this line. I'm sure it's plastered all over the internet already. So next week i'll officially give my 2 cents on this one :)

i emailed MAC about the rumor and no the rumor is not true. Paint Pots won't be replacing the Paints in the tubes.

here's the online artist response to my question about Paint Pots replacing Paints in the tube:

Our PAINT POTS have been introduced, not as a replacement for PAINTS, but as another great product our customers can enjoy. Paints will not be discontinued.

IN 3D Available in the US 8/02 and now Online

I haven't actually seen this good stuff.. But i love the lid on the glosses.. YUM YUM!!
Ok..another confession I haven't had time to keep up the latest info on this color story or on painterly. I have been lovin' my MAC Flashtronic and Rushmetal pieces. On a good note, this new line 3D are for the lips, and will totally COMPLEMENT the Flashtronic and Rushmetal line. The homework I have done is In 3D is a limited line and Painterly is here to stay. I haven't stocked up on Stilife Paint in hopes that painterly will blow it out of the water. For those who have drier lips and want full "plush" lips, stick to glosses and lipliner. Skip on the lipstick, you'll see a difference :)

Soft Arabic Eyes

Arabic Eyes are always HOT HOT HOT , but sometimes it might be a bit much for an everyday look to work or school. But thats not true anymore. You can have dark eyes yet still keep it playful and toned down. Here is my watered down version of Arabic eyes. I mentioned Urban Decay 24/7 ZERO in this video..I think they changed the formula or something, cause last time I had this it was great. Could just be my eyes, but this lasted for an hour or so. Taking it back tonight for sure. But if you find ANYTHING that will stay comfortably on your water line let me know. I’d really appreciate it. I think i’m going to try MAC’s Technakohl Liner next and/ or something from NYX.

Soft Wavy Hair

Want the “I didn’t spend time on my hair” look? While still looking fabulous at the same time? Well I have a great 10 minute hair do that will solve that. All you need are some styling products and a large curling iron. Mine is Hot Tools 1 1/4 inch. A good curling iron will help out a lot. So if you want to buy a new one check out Hot Tools and Helen of Troy, those two are great and won’t break the piggy bank. :)

My Kabuki Brush

As promised here is my Novel Twist Kabuki Brush from Nordstroms. I haven't really tried the pearlizer but the brush is tooo cute and really full. See after you give it a good wash and groom(fan it out and let air dry) its pretty darn good. $24 goes a long way on this one. Three items from MAC. That doesn't happen very often now does it. Bag, Brush and pearlizer :)

Never use your concealer the same way again!
Quick Concealer Notes
White-Whitens reddish coloration and brighten dull skin
Green-Conceals redness
Purple-Adds glow to yellow skin tones
Yellow-Tones down purples and marks

Liquid concealer-Great for Dry skin
When in doubt use a concealer lighter than your skin, that way when you are using your foundation it won't be as obvious as a dark blob on your skin.

Tip- Use the foundation that is in your lid as concealer. Its thicker and will match your foundation exactly.

For dark circles, there isn't a product that will make it go away. That is under your skin. Getting a lot of rest and drinking water will help it. Products can only "puff" up the skin in the area so that its no longer visible. When I find something that really works I'll let you guys know :)
Or if you know of something let us know :)

Flashtronic Tutorial #1

This is my first tutorial with photos so please bare with me. I tried to use 90% Flashtronic items. The shadows also work REALLY well with a wet brush, so try that out too! The Diagram below should say lovestone, not lovestruck.. opppsy

1. Apply moisturizer all over eye area. Then add a light shade of concealer to hide dark areas. Then blend with sponge. Apply orangish -salmon color to eyes to bring under eye color back to even out your skin tone.

2. Apply Mac base in Luna, then apply Quarry all over lid from lash to brow bone. This color will be used as a highlighter too.

3. Take 217 brush and apply Ether into crease and a bit above your crease.
4. Apply lovestone into crease with a 224 or 222 brush
5. Blend and soften outer corners with blending brush

6.Take a large fluffy brush like the 227 and add Quarry to your inner 1/3 of your eyes and brow bone. Blend blend
7. Using your 219 add Quarry to your inner corner of your eyes. Use a wet brush for best results.
8. Using your 212 damp with water, fix + or mixing medium. Then swipe a bit of Ether ( from the darkest corner of the pot) and line top and bottom outer part of your eyes.

9. Blend blend blend, remember light to dark :)

10. Line your water line and squeeze so that the color will be on top and bottom. Fill in any parts that are missing.

11. Prime lashes with Clinique primer, and Clinique High Impact Mascara.

Nordstroms Pro Brush Review

181SE- Kabuki Brush
This brush is used to buff and smooth out any hard lines and create full coverage. It also is great at picking up loose shadows that have fallen on your cheeks. The one that came with the pearlizer set is very cute and its actually very full. The trick is to wash it first and fan it out so its a full fluff once its dry. I'll take a pic of mine once it is dry. :)
187SE - Very nice and soft. I have no complaints about this one. Again, after washing it mine fluffed right up and is at full force!
I like to use this with powder for a light coverage, use with foundation for a light coverage or with Blush for a light hint of color. The white "hair" is synthetic so the liquid will not absorb into the hairs.
168SE- This one is kind of slim brush, not as dense as I would like. But thats just from a visual standpoint. This brush comes in very handy when trying to contour your face and defining your cheekbones.
219SE- I love this brush, its soo great as a smudger, crease and eyeliner blender and great for precision.
212SE- This is a great brush for extra fine eyeliner, to apply glitter and fluid liner. This creates a much thinner line than the 266.
275SE- This is the only brush that I do not have. And for good reason. It might be one of those I have to get use to. Its very flimsy and doesn't help blend at all. If only it had just a few more hairs I might be able to find it useful. Denser brushes are better :) This one kind of reminds me of the brushes that comes in gift sets with Clinique and Estee Lauder around the holidays. Almost good, but not good enough.

SE= Special Edition

Another footnote
I have a full size 239 brush from Japan and one 249 from France. The only thing I find bad about the brush sets (Made in China) are the paint on the handle tends to chip. That could be me though, because i'm rough with my brushes. But as far as performance goes, I have no complaints!

Flastronic Bride

Everyone knows that the most important day to any girl is their Wedding day. Luckily if you get married at the Venetian in Vegas they take care of almost everything. Here are some close ups of the beautiful bride. I know the photos are small, these are just proofs, the real photos wont be available for another 4 weeks. But by then MAC's Flashtronic will probably be SOLD OUT.
How to get this same look at your wedding, or any day of the week? Just read below my step by step instructions on how to be the perfect bride.

Clean and exfoliate face night before. Don't use anything that you have never tried before.

  • Apply Clinique Gel Moisturizer all over face
  • Using a wet sponge apply concealer to areas that need concealing. (She typically doesn't wear any makeup, and doesn't need very much coverup. I used MAC Studio Stick in NC 35
  • MAC Spray Fix + Plus to large brush, I used MAC's 187 brush
    take brush and dab into foundation of choice. I am using Mac's Hyper Real Foundation in NC 35. Fluff all over face for an all over glow.
  • For cheeks I used MAC's Flashtronic Skin Finish in Global Glow
  • Applied Northern light on the apples of her cheeks, forehead, chin and nose
  • Temples in a c-shape using Vanilla Pigment
  • Urban Decay Potion Primer over lids
  • MAC's Cream color base in Luna all over lids
  • Naked pigment all over lids
  • Mac's new Eyeshadow By Jupiter in crease and outer corner
  • Used Naked Pigment as highlighter and on inner corner of eyes
  • Lined eye with same By Jupiter with 266 brush
  • Went over eyeliner with Benefit Shelaq to prevent any smudges or smears
  • Clinique Lash primer and Lash Doubling
  • Duo Lash Glue
  • Red Cherry #47 for a dramatic look
  • Curl both false and real lashes together with heated lash curler. (done carefully with blow dryer.)
  • MAC's Lipglass in Perfectly Pink. No need for lipstick or liner :)
If you have any questions let me know :)
