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.

I am sitting out on my porch typing this because it is beyond hot in my little apartment.

Moving on, Saturday was one of the greatest days of my year.

I have been a big time supporter of Johnny Cupcakes for more over 3 years now and yesterday I got the chance to meet the man himself. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to meet him, free ice cream and a free cupcake!

His story is more than inspirational and I encourage you to read more about him, if you have the chance.

He took time out to share some of his knowledge with me. I thought it was so amazing and special that every person that came up to him, he hugged, signed something, and shared a story with them. He is more than a brand, he is a real person that makes to make it in the world.

My makeup was simple considering the heat is always ten times worst in LA and no one likes a sweaty girl. Well unless you are into that kind of thing.

Early Saturday morning, my mom and I went to the TOMS Sample Sale.

I did some researching online beforehand to see what prices were last year and definitely knew I had to be there.

Standing in line for 4hrs was completely worth the unique TOMS we both came home with.

My 7 items gave 7 kids a pair of shoes!

I absolutely am so excited for this event next week. I have been a huge fan of NARS since high school and to be able to attend a free lecture by their Director of Global Artistry for NARS Cosmetics is blowing my mind. The fact that is in NYC sends my excitement over the top.

I will be sure to sneak a couple of pictures and share my excitement along the way.
