2011 New York Makeup Show Part 2 - Haul

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another post!  I know you're super excited to see this one.  Today I'll be showing my video and pictures of my 2011 New York Makeup Show Haul.  I seriously had less than an hour to make all my purchases since I was working the Graftobian Booth all day.  I didn't get to visit a lot of booths - Inglot, Stila, Eve Pearl...even though I really wanted to.  I just didn't have time!  I'll make sure to get them the next time.  If you want to see what I picked up, make sure to check this one out!  Most of them are items that I consider must-haves.

Makeup Travel Solution - Hold Me Bag Review

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another review.  You all may know that when it comes to packing makeup, I'm pretty OCD about it all.  I'm always looking ways to consolidate my kit.  Additionally, I always try to simplify my personal  makeup packing process when I travel.  If you're looking for a personal makeup travel solution make sure to check out this review!

Makeup Artist Series - Favorite MAC Bridal Shadows - Neutral Shades

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another post.  With Bridal season coming up, I thought this would be very helpful for my makeup artists and future brides alike.  I've created a series where I feature my favorite shadows that I use on Brides.  In general, I mainly use MAC shadows.  In this series I'll begin with neutral shades, then focus on other popular bridal requests - purples, smokey, and Indian Brides.

JewelMint Jewelry Review & Giveaway

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another video and review!  I was asked to review Kath Bosworth's new jewelry line JewelMint.  At first I wasn't sure if it was for me, but after taking a look at the absolutely gorgeous pieces I was sold.  It's similar to Shoedazzle in that it's a monthly jewelry site which has personallized recommendations.  The pieces are affordable but unique and high quality at the same time.  I think you guys will definitely be impressed.

Nume Clipless Curling Wand Review & Curly Hair Looks!

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another review!  In case you haven't noticed, I like to wear my hair curly a lot of the time.  I'm not much of a flat iron girl...I prefer either bouncy blow outs or curled styles.  I recently had a chance to review a clipless curling wand.  I've been meaning to talk about this tool for a while and this gives me a chance to do it.  In this review I also show you to curly hair styles I came up with.

Tutorial - Neutral with Pop of Green and Purple!

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another tutorial.  This look came to me as I was browsing through some of my bins of neglected makeup.  I like to come back and use items that haven't been touched in a while - it's like discovering a brand new product!  In this case, the product was the MAC Tempting Quad.  I was inspired by the colors in the palette to do a makeup tutorial which is the epitome of neutral with a bright pop of color.
