finally posted a new video for you guys. It's really quick and simple, it's an everyday look that I personally wear because I think liquid foundation can be very heavy and take a lot of time to apply everyday. Plus it's nice to let natural beauty shine through, if you have freckles let them show! They are a part of you and should be appreciated not hidden =).

If you don't want to use a tinted moisturizer,  I would suggest some type of mineral makeup in place of it. So it would be concealer and then the mineral foundation (usually because it's in powder form) It's also quick and good for your skin. Also what I didn't do here in the video is set my concealer with powder. It's not necessary but if you do want to set, I would add an extra step.

The video is still processing so the quality is pretty crap-tacular but I hope you all enjoy it!! I will list all the products I used underneath. Stay Beautiful!

She's Purdy!

So this was a while ago, about three years ago, but I was given the privilege to do makeup for a bride. Now she's not just any bride, this is my sister from another mother, my other soulmate, my best friend Krystina. <3

Krystina and I met through her husband Kevin. Kevin is John's best friend, but we immediately clicked when we met when I had asked her "how do you get your hair so poofy?" Since then she has been there for me when I needed her, though she lives far away in the state of New Hampshire (it's near Canada! (I know it's not this is an inside joke we share)) she is only a phone call away.

Here we are two Christmas' ago =)

She is wonderful and beautiful and I was honored to do her makeup for her. This was when I first started to really understand the power and beauty of makeup. Both she and Kevin got married on the beautiful island of Dominican Republic. We woke up bright and early the day of her wedding and I eagerly waited for her.  After she got her beautiful hair done at the resort spa I went to work. I didn't have pale enough liquid foundation with me, (plus it was humid and hot as heck!) so I had to make things work with what I had.

Fast forward to about 30 minutes later......

That was right after I finished, I'm sad to say that I don't have a larger picture of it, but here are some that she took after about two or so hours after the ceremony and pictures in the sun

Because I only used powder foundation on her face her beautiful freckles came through. Her face is a little red from the sun (>_< again I had limited amount of makeup with me) but my main focus was her eyes, because they are a gorgeous blue.

A profession shot of her in her beautiful wedding gown

I love this picture, because they are a beautiful couple, also because she looks absolutely stunning!

So this was my first makeup assignment, and though I don't have my license yet that doesn't stop me from doing my research and also applying it on my friends or family. I think this one was so special because not only was it my first but also because it was for someone so important in my life, so thank you Krys for letting me enhance the already beautiful you on your special day.


A non makeup entry

Today I'll use this blog to talk about my everyday life as well. =)

Though most of you are probably my facebook friends checking out my blog, to those of you who are not, please don't think I'm all about makeup. I'm not. What I love about makeup is the creativity it allows. Your face is your canvas to create so many beautiful images. I also love that makeup can be just that little bit that adds confidence to a woman (or man). It can enhance the already beautiful features that everyone has. I'm a nerd that likes to look pretty. I read and play WoW (my vice though I am currently taking a hiatus) And of course my friends all know what I'm about =D

Sooooo....Thanksgiving! I'm super excited this year because it will just be me and my beau in our small little apartment. We (mostly me though) are gonna be cooking on our own, which means...*gasp* I'll be popping my baking a turkey cherry! Heh, it's not gonna be a whole turkey, it's the breast. I bought it today and it's HUGE! Especially for the two of us. I'll be eating turkey for days.

The holiday season is coming up and I am so excited to put up our little Charlie Brown tree and to buy gifts for all my important people. As cheesy as it may sound, your friends and family are the best gifts to be had.

If I don't update before Thanksgiving, Happy Turkey Day! Enjoy it with those you love and be safe. And most of all, LET THAT FAT KID OUT! =D

~Stay beautiful!


Happy Friday!

Hey Guys!
I'm finally starting to feel better! Woot! Anyway just wanted to write a blurb to say Hi!!!! Hope to see you all soon! =)

Ahh! I love my necklace! One of the best birthday presents ever! Plus I got some matching earrings =)


Parlez Vous to you!

Mind you that I have no clue what Parlez Vous means, but I picked out this OPI color when I went to get a manicure last week. I am in love with this nail polish! So in love that I asked the woman if I could buy it, when she said I couldn't I found it in another salon like store when I visited my Mum for lunch. Anywho, yeah this mauve purpley beautiful color is great! I got for about 8 bucks which isn't too expensive, I think it's a little more than an Essie nail polish, but OPI for me can't be found in a drugstore. Well in a Bayonne drugstore...

So, the color is great, it goes with my skin tone. And you know what else?? It lasts a hella long time! I mean it lasted about 5 days no chip whatsoever. AMAZING! I find this to be fantastic just because every time I paint my nails or get my nails done, it takes two days for it to chip and I feel that I wasted my time and money. With this nail polish I won't feel that way. I don't know if it's the mix of the formula or what but this just started to chip today and I got my manicure last Monday.

Thanks for reading guys! I appreciate really how much my friends are so supportive of me =). A new video will be up soon. I haven't put one up lately because my eyelids are having an allergy attack, meaning it's all scaly and not pretty -_-. Once my sore throat goes away I will try and get another tutorial up and running!

Stay beautiful!
