Lip Obsessions Lately…

Lately I have been all over the place with my lip colors! From reds to bright oranges, its fun to mix it up once in a while. I usually always tend to go back to my comfortable colors, such as nudes, pinks, peaches. These hues always tend to go with everything I am wearing on my eyes, but if you are doing a winged liner and want to play up the look a bit, brights can be your best friend. Check out a few of my absolute favorite colors lately, below!

Let Them Bake! Setting Powders & More…

The “Baking” technique has blown up across the world in the makeup industry! If you are unfamiliar with what “Baking” means, I will explain it now. This method means to let it sit on the face anywhere from 10-20 minutes so your own body heat melts the makeup into the skin. Makeup oxidizes, especially liquids, and it will change color/texture. Allowing these products to cook/bake will leave the product more pigmented and fully covered, creating an easier blend. This creates a more “Flawless” effect to the skins finish. See more below!

To get this look, you will need:

·      A creamy concealer: Eve Pearl Salmon conceal is great!
1. Apply the concealer under eyes with your finger, concealer brush, or blender sponge.

·      beautyblender and Fan Brush to blend and dust after application
2. Blend out the concealer with your Beauty Blender and immediately apply powder after for cooking process.

·      A finely milled powder like NYX Color Correcting Banana Powder {This is the best powder out there} I have used SO many finely milled powders {example: Ben Nye Banana / Laura Mercier Translucent} This one is very very pigmented and will give you the best end results!
3. Apply a good amount of the setting powder to the concealer, let bake for 10-20min, once done baking- dust off excess powder with fan brush! PERFECTION!

Pore Fillers: Hiding Acne & Scars

Hello Babes!

I always get asked the best products for hiding pores, filling in lines, & smoothing out pimples and scars! Well you are in luck because I have compiled some of my favorite products below for just this! Pores are inevitable, you cannot get rid of them, but you can minimize and hide them with the right technique. Often people are afraid of makeup when they have acneic or scarred skin because it can make it look “CAKEY” if not applied the correct way. Layering more and more product on will only leave you looking overly frosted. Primer and Pore Fillers will be your best friend if you struggle with texturized skin. Keep reading to learn my favorites at the moment…


Pore Fillers / Line Fillers / Scar Fillers:

Fillers are usually clear/ or flesh tone and are best when applied with the fingers directly to the skin. Focus on the T-zone if your pores are large in these areas. For scars/wrinkles you can apply these with fingers to the area as well. Apply lightly so that you are not soaking up a lot of the product into your hands. Let dry and foundation can be applied over with a Beauty Blender- this is the best tool for hiding texture.


  1. NYX Pore Filler - A nude smooth consistency, this pore filler is AMAZING, and for the cheap price it is definitely a must buy. Get porcelain doll like skin before coverage with this beautiful filler! $11 {ACNE SKIN SUGGESTION}


  1. theBalm – Time Balm - Pink tone pore filler, very velvety finish to the skin. Let it dry for atleast 5 minutes before applying foundation $29


3. Clarins Skin Smooth Perfect – This one is by far my favorite when it comes to fillers. It is thick and smooth, leaves the skin feeling poreless basically!! I use this on usually every single client for that perfect skin finish before foundation $28

Indian Beauty: Double Winged Liner

Hello loves!

Today I have this gorgeous dramatic Indian bridal look to share with you all! Traditional Indian wedding makeup has got to be one of my favorite looks to create! They usually have a very bold eye with either glitters or heavy liner. In this case, my gorgeous bride, Jasmine {ya she looks like the Disney princess too}, requested a copper smokey eye with double winged liner. To create this very heavy wined-liner look, a steady hand is required, but a heavy hand as well so that you can apply a bold amount! Not only is this look stunning, but it really makes the eyes the main focus! I used some fluffy Huda Beauty lashes, of course, and bronze shadows from Estee Lauder’s new palette Bronze Goddess <3
