My Birthday Weekend Was So Much Fun!

Friends, family and fabulous new friends made my party Saturday, Aug. 28th a blast. A good time was had by all! Nothing but good energy from the happy feeling throughout the crowd to the absolutely unbelievable DJ it was a party not to be forgotten! Lots of laughs, dancing and yes cocktails! ;-)  I had the time of my life! xx

It's All About IMAN!

Second To None Semi-Loose Powder

Undercover Agent Oil Control Primer
I keep getting so many questions about Iman makeup. I've made it clear it's the foundation & powder I use now after years of living by Dermablend. I cannot convey enough how extraordinary the results are of the creme foundation & powders. You have an amazingly matte face and the times you have to powder due to shining is diminished by leaps and bounds. I haven't tried the new liquid foundation yet.... but that's next! As I've stated before Smashbox has the best Primer to me. I've recently discovered Iman's Under Cover Agent Oil Control Primer is a strong second. It's really good. It's  $14.99 like most of the products in the line. What's so great is you can purchase this great makeup at your local Target or Walgreen's and other drugstores. Write and let me know how Iman's working for you! xoxo

Ready, Set, Go... Out!

I took this shot right before I left on my way to a good friends birthday party. It was a fun night had by all. I'll be having my own birthday party this coming weekend and I will post some great pictures from that. I have an idea what makeup look I want to do for that night... stay tuned!

Gorgeous Colors!

4 Color Palette ( Burning Heart)

Sparkling Loose  Eyeshadow
I love, love , love Sugarpill Cosmetics. They have rich vibrant colors with crazy pigment. It's like makeup candy. Definitely check them out. Their 4 color palettes I think are the best buy. Singularly the shadows are $12 each, if bought in the 4 color palette it's $34. And their Sparkling Loose Eyeshadow are to die for. Also $12 a piece. You can use the shadows wet or dry and they are very long lasting. And FYI: their products are all vegan, never animal tested. (click link on sidebar)

Cher & Kevyn Aucoin = Magic!

Cher is one of those rare artist's who does her own makeup very often and is very good. One of her favorite people to do it for her is the late great Kevyn Aucoin. In my opinion Kevyn is the greatest makeup artist's ever! If you ever need any tutorials with makeup purchase one of his books, they are detailed and will improve your skills by leaps and bounds. You can grab then from Amazon or Ebay for really cheap these days! You can also purchase his make up at (click link on sidebar)
He did Cher's makeup for her video 'Dov'รจ L'Amore' from her hit album 'Believe' in 1999. It's breathtaking! Can you believe it's from 1999! Everything comes back! It looks very current.
