Makeover: Purple and Pink Glow

Hi Bellas,

I want to share a makeover that I recently did on my girl Leslie.  We were on vacation together and I decided to make her over as a treat.  She's also a MUA and like me, no one ever does her makeup.  I turned her into a mini-me, using all of the products in my makeup bag but making them work for her deeper complexion, and it was a success!  Check it out!

Product Review: Lay and Go

Hi Bellas,

I absolutely love when I find makeup gadgets that make my life a whole lot easier.  I stumbled across this product called Cosmo Lay and Go when I was at IMATS LA at the Alcone Booth.  The idea is simple...lay your makeup out on this bag, then snap it up and go!  This is great for those of you who do makeup on the go or hate clearing up makeup mess.  Check it out!
