All About That Face: Glowing Skin w/ Strobing & Contouring

All About That Face: Glowing Skin w/ Strobing & Contouring

I decided to use all the highlighters…

When my good friend and amazingly talented musician Dale LePage asked me if I wanted to use his song, How She Shines, in a video I knew I was going to go a little overboard with the shimmer.  I’ve been wanting to do a look for a long time that just focused on glowing skin w/ strobing & contouring while keeping the eyes and lips neutral and matte.  Most of my looks are a matte or slightly shimmery face with bold eyes and/or lips with lots of sparkle and shine.

I wanted to strobe, but I also wanted to contour… which is apparently a mortal sin when strobing.  But I contoured with shimmer… ahh, a loophole in the strobing universe! With so much going on on the face, I kept the eyes simple, only using the matte shades in my new Naked Smoky palette, and stayed with a mauve nude matte liquid lipstick…

Think Pink: An Ode to Makeup in Pink Packaging

Think Pink: An Ode to Makeup in Pink Packaging

Confession time… I have a little obsession with pink.  I know, you’re shocked right?  I specifically have a weakness for a pearly pink shade.  Actually, several years ago when I needed a new laptop, I did a ton of research, sat in on a Mac workshop, and talked to several computer experts.  But then I walked into Best Buy, I saw a pink Dell laptop, and said, “I want that one.”  When I bought my first digital camera, I did the same thing… I bought the pearly pink one.  Since then, times have changed.. kinda.  Just this year, when my trusty pink laptop started to die (RIP old friend), I invested in a Macbook (it’s silver, but I’m trying to look past it).  I have become more mature in my technology tastes opting for silver or white, and I picked my DSLR because it was the best, even though it’s a dark and boring black.  I now pick function over fashion… with the exception of my Kate Spade iPad case that is so pretty but keeps falling part… but it’s soooo pretty!

Technology aside, I recently realized while filming my July Beauty Favorites, that my two favorite mascaras come in pearly pink tubes.  That’s when I got to thinking, there’s a lot of makeup that I love that comes in pretty rose packaging.  Since I’m a sucker for pink and for great packaging, I thought I would share my favorites….

My First Mac Pro Card Haul & Some Sephora Stuff As Well

My First Mac Pro Card Haul & Some Sephora Stuff As Well

For those of you who don’t know, I went of Cosmetology school after High School.  Some kids backpack through Europe to find themselves.  I went to my local Rob Roy.  It wasn’t quite as glamorous as Europe, but having my license has given me some perks.  I can shop for many hair products at wholesale prices, and, as I’ve recently discovered, I can get a pro card with a discount from some makeup lines.  I most recently got one from Mac, which was the most exciting.  Here’s what I got in my first Mac Pro Card Haul & some Sephora stuff as well…
