Make-Up Artist Series: Tips for Applying Makeup to Oily Skin

Hi Bellas,

I personally have really dry skin, but a lot of my clients and readers ask for recommendations on how to apply make-up on oily skin.  Consider yourselves lucky because oily skin will keep you looking young longer, you just need to know how to control it.  I get this question a lot so I decided to do a post on it.  This is a method which I find works for my oily-skin clients.  You can probably switch out some of the products but these have worked for me.

Makeup Artist Series: Storing Makeup Brushes on a Gig

Hi Bellas,

I've been trying to think of some helpful posts, and I think this could be one of interest to my fellow makeup artists out there.  You all know that I have a bit of OCD when it comes to organizing my makeup.  As an artist, you have to pack and unpack your kit efficiently.  On a lot of gigs, you don't always get a lot of surface area to work on.  Also, you need to be able to find your kit items easily and separate dirty products from clean.  I came up with an idea to help you guys store your makeup brushes on a gig.  This is also an idea for those of you who travel a lot.

Easy Anti-Aging Tip

Hi Bellas,

I know this might sound paranoid, but it's best to start your anti-aging routine when you're young.  If you're pro-active about it, you won't have to worry about trying to fix it as much later on.  I started incorporated anti-aging products in my early 20's when I started my blog.  It's never too early to start by protecting your skin with sunscreen.

My Top Ten MAC Lip Liners

Hi Bellas,

This is a continuuation of my series of some of my favorite MAC products.  Today I decided to focus again on lips.  Lip Pencils are a must-have in my collection.  They can make any lip color work if you find the right color.  I love how pencils define lips.  Mind you, you still have to blend to make them look good!  And no permanent marker style lips people!

Sugarpill Cosmetics New Colors!

Hi Bellas,

My girl Shrinkle recently came out with some new chromalust loose shadows that are absolutely gorgeous.  These are some of the brightest, smoothest shades you'll find.  This means a lot from me especially since I don't use too many pigments on a regular basis, but I keep my Sugar Pill colors around because there really is not equivalent that I've found.
