Wonder Woman At MAC!!

I haven't been excited about something from MAC in so long I can't remember when. I'm usually not a fan of their ever present limited edition collections, I just replace my staples. It's the whole concept really... MAC used to be so good What happened? *sigh* I digress. I am super excited about the new Wonder Woman Collection. Mostly because I LOVE Wonder Woman! The packaging is so cool. There's no way I cannot have some of these items in my collection. Here I come MAC!! They are making quite the big deal of it. They opened what they're calling a Pop-up store in downtown Manhattan yesterday (just for the day), it will open officially on February 3rd! According to their press it will ultimately become just a regular MAC store. I am SO there!

Making Faces: My Latest

First I have one of my closest friends Jamie. The objective was to give him the non-makeup look. Accentuate the positives and give him a glow without it being readily recognizable that he's wearing makeup. Not only was Jamie a joy to work with and a perfect model he's so damned handsome it was a breeze! ;) 

Next I have Jamie & Donatella. Working with Donatella was rewarding in that I learned a lot about  working with a hooded eye. I have read a lot about it from my inspiration Kevyn Aucoin and watching the amazing Wayne Goss but this was my first on hands experience. I love this pic of them together!

Jamie. Gorgeous!
Thank You to Donatella & Jamie!!

New Brushes & Disappointing Haul :(

I've been crazy busy lately guys. I'm finally back home after a quick trip and staying in too it's freezing in NYC brrrrr. I have so much stuff coming up to share with you. One of my favorite things I've gotten recently is some new brushes. It's a travel kit but they're not as small as some can be & they are pretty good quality. The brushes are from MAC and they were limited edition. They are so great I'd love to have more but when I went to MAC and inquired I was told that is it! I Love these brushes! 

After being completely sold on how good Wet n Wild eye shadows are now I was really interested in the new collection they released for 2011. My interest in the new collection was piqued when I read a post on MakeupNme's blog MakeupNme and saw her video! Obviously she was right on the money... and a whole lot of other people feel the same way! Everywhere I went to purchase this collection they were Completely sold out! I went to like 3 Walgreens and 2 RiteAids urgh :( Who'd have thought the day would come when Wet n Wild would be difficult to find! All I could get is one nail polish from the collection. While I really like it that's not what I really wanted! lol 
The nail polish is called Saved By The Blue. I also got a Wet n Wild Lipstick (#549A) and an eye shadow by Covergirl: Raisin, it's my fav by them. I use it as a blush as well ;)

Gorgeous Iman, The Talented Sam Fine

Celebrity Makeup Artist and in my opinion absolute genius Sam Fine posted this picture this morning of his latest work on the iconic beauty Iman. His artistry never ceases to amaze me. This is so gorgeous...and timely. Neutral makeup looks are so popular right now, Urban Decay capitalized on this with their wildly successful Naked Palette. This look Sam did on Iman is so simple yet high art... it's sheer perfection. I remain in awe of Sam Fine and my foremost inspiration Iman.
