LORAC unzipped palette review!

Hi there!
I just picked up the new Lorac unzipped palette the other day at ULTA and im in love!!!
It seems like it's following suit of the NAKED palette phenomenon, but what stood out about this one was that the color range seemed to lean more toward the reddy browns, and warm tones rather than the gold browns and neutrals seen in the naked palette and the competitors alike. In addition i was happy to see more matte color choices with 4 matte colors and 6 shimmer colors. I swatched the colors on my hand with no flash, the payoff if great and the shadows have very little fallout. Shadows with a warm/red undertone look fabulous on light colored eyes, making them pop and look more vibrant. I have been using the colors on a few of my clients over this week, including Ashlee my beautiful bride today!
On Ashley:
Brow highlight and inner corner: undercover
Lid: unbelievable
Crease: unconditional and unbridled
Lashline/smudged underneath: untamed
Liner: black track fluid line MAC
Lashes: great lash waterproof, red cherry #217 lashes

Victoria's Secret liquid eyeshadow radiate review

I rarely purchase makeup from VS but this shimmer liquid eyeshadow in Radiate caught my eye. In the picture I just got off of work and was headed to a party and needed to freshen my look without taking off all my makeup, so I added a coat of radiate on top of my neutral eyeshadow. I really liked that it didn't smudge, crease or transfer on to my eyelashes (which typically happens with liquid or cream shadows). It dries with little fallout. I swatched the shadow alone (top) and then I layered it with MAC pigment in Copper Sparkle (bottom) love it! I would highly recommend this shadow for a fun night out, and I will definitely will look into purchasing the other colors.

Lippy butter in teddy girl review

So I recently picked up a new lipgloss
At Ulta from Butter. This line is usually restricted to an array of nail polish colors in pretty pastels and funky glitters, so I was surprised to see they had added a line of lip glosses! I am always on the hunt for the perfect milky pink so I picked up the color teddy girl.

The first thing I noticed about this gloss was the distinct fragrance and taste. Although I usually don't mind, this was a bit overwhelming. The payoff of the color was nice, pretty opaque but it just did not really spread, it was so thick And sticky that I really couldn't get even coverage. I think the only way I can use this gloss is layering it lightly with a very emollient lipstick.
Overall I wasn't impressed. Sad face.

BTC in Sarasota and ybor

We got to shoot in historic ybor city for day one of our photoshoot! We had multiple locations around the city so we were being escorted be police car from each location. Let me tell you the backseat of a cop car has NO legroom!

Day 2 we shot at a beautiful house right on the beach. One of the props for the day was a restored VW van.

What I have been up to lately!

Hey guys it's been a while since I've blogged so please accept my apologies! Here's a few random pics so you can see what I've been working on!
Chillounge is a huge event that Ana Molinari always sponsors every year, so we get to do the hair and makeup for some beautiful models! It was a success even though it rained right before our fashion show! Can't wait for next year!
I've been working with Sarasota magazine for the April
And may issues which has been so much fun! The may issue will be the results for the best of Sarasota poll! It was a very stylized shoot very retro glam! The one pictured is April which was shot on egmont key, off the coast of Tampa bay. We took a boat full of 10 people to an island of abandoned forts with no electricity or bathrooms it was an adventure to say the least! Everyone on the crew was a joy to work with!
Eden is a new arts and culture magazine I have been working on
the first issue came out which I had the pleasure to assist on, and we just finished shooting the 2nd issue for
Summer where I did the makeup!
Oh and my first ad ever made it into the first issue!
Ok that's it for my makeup adventures! Have a fabulous day!
Love e
