Monday Makeover

Hello loves!

Today I have this gorgeous makeover to share with you that I created this past weekend here in CA. I had the honor to doll up the gorgeous and super sweet, Tawyna, for her wedding day! Along, with all of her 6 bridesmaids. Tawnya wanted a very glamorous eye and contoured face. I was so happy with how her makeover turned out. She has the most amazing hazel eyes that I have ever seen. I cant wait to share with you all of her bridesmaids looks as well! Happy Monday! XOX

To One Year Wiser…

Happy Friday from CA!

Well I just got to San Diego and will be out here working for the next week and I couldn’t be more excited to see my family and friends for my birthday today! The weather is gorgeous and the beach is calling my name! I am so lucky to call California home :) Today I wanted to share a quick preview of a fun & whimsical shoot I did with the amazing Andra for my b-day! She had a fun idea of having balloons and being out in a gorgeous field, and I couldn’t resist! I was so in awe with how the photos turned out, she really is the most phenomenal photographer in Utah and I cannot wait to use her again! I used all of my favorite makeup products to create this light makeup look, including: Huda Beauty, Frankie Rose, Dior, Gerard Cosmetics, and Too Faced to name a few! I will do a full tutorial on this look soon, but for now I’m off to the sand!

Love you all <3

XOXO

Setting Spray: Model In a Bottle – This is one of the most important products that every MUA and everyday gal should own. If you would like your makeup to stay on for up to 24 hours, then purchase THIS now! I have used many setting sprays in the past, MIAB is by far my most favorite. It does not leave the skin sticky or shiny. It sucks oil out of the skin and holds the liquids and powders on for an entire day. I use this on all my brides so that their face/eyes last through their special day!

“Get the staying power of a stain, the intense color of a liquid lipstick and the high shine of a gloss in one long-wear formula. Using exclusive technology to keep cauldrons of molten lipsticks liquid and creamy, Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick comfortably coats lips in bursts of intense, high-impact, super rich, saturated color that lasts for hours.” -TF

Foundation: “Earth Yellow” Camo Cosmetics with a Luxie Lush stippling brush

Concealer: LA Girl in “Classic Ivory”- these are wonderful creaseless concealers that work perfect for hiding dark circles or brightening up the under eyes! {review to come}

Blush: AOM Cosmetics “Dainty Doll”- this is a gorgeous pearl pink with flecks of highlight. I would suggest this for all skin types. Super high quality & pigmented.

Highlighter: AOM Cosmetics in “Candlelight” - my new favorite highlighter on the planet – this is a beautiful pearl/white highlight that adds the perfect amount of glow to the skin. I would compare it to MAC Soft and Gentle and Becca Opal mixed!

Contour: AOM Cosmetics contour stick {review to come}

Powder: Dior setting powder

Eyeshadows: AOM HD shadows-

  1. Bare Canvas- apply all over the lid to create a nude base
  2. Espresso- apply Espresso to the inner corner of the eye and the outer corner of the eye creating a “Smokey” effect on each corner.
  3. Molton- Apply this with a wet brush to the center of the lid for a pop of bronzed shimmer.
  4. Glow- pop this shadow on top of Molton to create that beige-bronze color

.Liner on bottom: Line the eyes with white liner- LA Girl in “White”

Brown shadow on bottom: add the “Espresso” with an angled brush along the bottom lash line and blend with a Q-tip.

Lashes: Huda Beauty in the NEW “Samantha” pre-stacked lashes applied with Huda Beauty lash glue! I have to rant about these a bit… I am absolutely in LOVE with them to say the least. I have been stacking lashes {applying two} to my eyes for so long because I love the look of overly thick, long, black lashes. Finally I have found a pair that is natural but still thick and makes my eyes look big and beautiful! Thank you Huda for making such a beautiful style of lashes, they really are the most comfortable, high quality and stunning lashes.

As you all know, I wear Huda lashes majority of the time and use them on most of my clients- they are currently being sold only in Dubai but will be shipping world wide soon, and once they are you must all try them! I will be doing a fun giveaway soon with these lashes, so please check back!

Lips: LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint in “Babydoll” – These are beautiful lip glosses that come out like thick creamy lipstick. I love the texture of them and they last super long. This color lasted me three hours through my beauty event! {review to come}

High Fashion/Editorial Glam Shoot: Part 1

Happy weekend my loves!

Today I am sharing with you a very dramatic & glamorous look I created for a fashion shoot  a few weeks ago! These are my favorite looks to create because they allow me to be very artistic with makeup. I posted the fun before and after photo HERE , I always like to show the difference that contouring can make! Obviously Marina needs no makeup to look gorgeous, but I am so glad she was the model and I got to work on her perfect face! I went for a thick winged liner, golden shimmer and deep bordeaux lips. I would suggest this makeup style for mostly party or photo shoots, probably not an everyday style ;) I will post the face and lips details soon!

photo 1-9I got to visit my sweet aussie gal, Bri and talk makeup and hang at the beach for the day! We both LOVE highlighter, lashes, foundation…the whole sha-bang, so we both had fun playing with some new makeup! Here is some breakdown of our looks:

  • Foundation: Estee Lauder Double Wear in “Rattan” {both} – This is a gorgeous yellow/olive toned full coverage foundation that looks amazing on all skin tones. Estee Lauder is our favorite foundation- it gives a super smooth finish!
  • Lashes: Huda Beauty “Giselle” lashes {Me} Ardell Demi Wispies {Bri} – These are both beautiful and wispy , Huda lashes are only available in Dubai at the moment but if you are looking for a great dupe, the Ardells are basically the same!
  • Lips: Rimmel lip liner in “Nude” & MAC “Pretty Plush” gloss- the perfect nude/natural lip combo!

I spent one night at the beach with friends after a day of clients and it was gorgeous! I am wearing my my Million Dollar Tan “Mermaid Mousse” for a natural looking tan.

Hello my loves!!!

Happy hump day! Today I am so excited to share with you all this glowing look I created on the stunning international model, Shaliece Marie. I could not be more happy with how this makeup turned out, but it makes my job SO easy when my client is drop deal gorgeous. Shaliece had all the right features, thick brows, big eyes, perfect skin and naturally pouty lips. We went for a very classic look, focusing mostly on the eyes and keeping the skin very clean and dewy. This is a look that I would do for any client, but this especially looks good in photos. To learn more about how to achieve this chic look, keep reading!

Eyeshadow Palette: Lorac Pro 2 {Review coming soon- basically its the BEST}
  1. Apply “Buff” all over eye | 2. Apply “Cool Gray” in crease | 3. Apply “Rose” in center/inner for shimmer | 4. Apply “Charcoal” in crease | 5. Apply “Black” to smudge liners top & bottom
Lashes: Huda Beauty “Alyssa” stacked on
Brush those brows UP for a very chic-vogue look!
