makeup summer camp challenge #2

Challenge two of #makeupsummercamp is here!

I want to see your most creative, sparkly, glittery makeup looks.  Post a photo to Instagram of yourself (or your model) with a makeup look that includes glitter, shimmer, sparkle, or shine, and hashtag #makeupsummercamp by Sunday night.  I will choose my favorite look, and the winning camper will receive a prize package of some of my favorite glittery makeup products.

If you have a private Instagram profile, or you don't use Instagram, you can post your makeup look to my Facebook wall.

Also, big congratulations to Daisy Alvarado for winning last week's eyeliner challenge with her awesome crown-inspired look!

Can't wait to see your glittery looks!




This Summer I want to help other makeup artists and makeup lovers stay creative and feel inspired, so I have launched #makeupsummercamp. Every week I will announce a new challenge, and every week at least one happy camper will win some LEGIT prizes!  I've announced this week's challenge on my facebook page and my Instagram, but I don't want my readers to miss out!

This week your #makeupsummercamp challenge is to create a dramatic eyeliner look, and post a photo on Instagram (or to my facebook wall) with the hashtag #makeupsummercamp.  This week's winner will get a nice little goody bag filled with the products that are essential to me when I'm creating a dramatic eyeliner look!

Keep in mind, you can use a model (friend, mom, dad, boyfriend...), or create the look on yourself. Just be sure to upload your looks by Friday to be considered!

Please don't be shy, I'm not looking for perfection, I'm looking for creativity!




This week I'm launching #makeupsummercamp!  I'm going to liven up your summer with fun challenges and exciting prizes.  Don't miss out! Like me on Facebook and follow me on Instagram
to be one step ahead of the competition.



I am having a major drugstore beauty moment right now. Wet n Wild, a brand I loved in high school, has come raging back in to my heart! Their megalast lip colors have an amazing, matte texture. They're highly pigmented, with a great variety of shades to choose from, and they cost $1.99!

This week I spent a few days working with Marina and The Diamonds.  Here she is performing How To Be A Heartbreaker on Jimmy Kimmel.

She's wearing wet n wild megalast lip color in dollhouse pink.

This color seems to be sold out all over Los Angeles, so happy hunting!

I did True Blood actress Rutina Wesley's makeup for the Late Late Show.  

Rutina is wearing a combination of short and medium individual lashes by eylure.



Sephora + NARS = ❤

Last month I was browsing the Sephora website, stocking up on Lancome HYPNÔSE when I ran across this amazing, limited edition NARS Sea of Love Set

The set contains mini sizes of 
NARS Multiple in OrgasmNARS Blush in Super Orgasm, NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight, and a full size NARS Illuminator in Laguna.

These happen to be some of my favorite products for creating a beachy, bronzy, natural look.  It turns out I like the Multiple even better in this mini size because it's easier to apply.  These products are great for my personal makeup kit because they're small and easy to travel with.  It's a great and affordable way to introduce some classic NARS products into your professional kit as well!
