Busy busy Saturday.

Saturday morning, I headed up to LA for a class at the Make Up For Ever Pro Loft (I know right!) and it was absolutely amazing.

The class focused on how to transform a face which takes the Art of Contour to the next level. Lijha Stewart taught us how highlight and contour can completely change our make up and our client’s appearance.

Lijha is truly amazing at what she does!

I took everything I was taught and speed back down to Oceanside and created this look!

 

I think I did an excellent job for this to be first time using Make Up For Ever’s special fx products.

I used cotton balls, MUFE; plasto wax, spirit glue and their special effects palette. Definitely plan to explore the world of special fx makeup a little more now.

Hello, Bombshell

As I mentioned, I was over Birchbox and their slow shipping. This month I decided to try Ipsy, better known as Myglambag. I was excited because their online community is very active. Here is what I received in the Hello, Bombshell bag

Teeny tiny samples of Coastal Scents eyeshadow.  Pequi Oil Treatment by Couture Colour.  A great eye liner by Be A Bombshell, that I used this morning. Lip Bomb Glossy Lacquer by Mirenesse and a mascara by The Balm.

I was a little disappointed with what I received since previous month’s bags where great in my opinion. As I use more of the products, hopefully I’ll change by mind in a positive way. But not bad for $10 and the super cute bag.

Some Urban Decay

I picked an Urban Decay palette from Nordstrom’s Rack a couple of weeks ago for $12. My first UD palette actually. Shocker! I’m not crazy in love with the Naked palette. Shocker again! I really like this Skull Shadow Box. This palette is on sale as apart of Urban Decay’s Family and Friends sale.

On my lid is Vert. Creased with Twice Baked. Inner corner and lower lid touched barely with Blunt. Outer corner is filled with Oil Slick.

My lip color is a mix of Revlon’s Va Va Violet and Mac’s Beaux.
