Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another post in my Makeup Artist Series.  One thing that my students struggle with is learning how to apply makeup on dry skin.  They need to learn a few techniques and products that will allow them to get an even foundation application without flaking and dryness.  I've got 7 tips and products that will help you apply makeup on yourself and your clients flawlessly as the cooler Fall weather creeps in.  Check it out!


Hi Bellas,

I've got a new product review for you.  I've been playing with some new products by Pixi.  Up first is this contour and highlight palette made in collaboration with Beauty Guru Maryam Maquillage.  It can be kinda tough for drugstore contour/highlight palettes to work for everyone.  Does it pass the test?  Check my thoughts below!

Hi Bellas,

I've got some new products to test out by some of my favorite beauty gurus and Pixi.  Pixi has been on point lately with their new product releases both makeup and skincare.  Check out some of these new goodies by some ladies you may recognize!

Hi Bellas,

I am totally on the water based skincare bandwagon.  I had the chance to try out Dr. Jart's new Water Fuse collection and it is love!  I finally had the opportunity to try a sleep mask.  My skin is super soft and hydrated but not weighed down in this summer heat.  Check it out!


Hi Bellas,

I've been in the market for new brow products so I was super happy that I got a package from Benefit just in time full of their amazing Brow Line.  I've heard and lemmed over this line directed by the amazing Dynessa Myricks for so long and I am super excited to show you these goodies.  You'll definitely be seeing these products make their appearance in tons of FOTDs to come.  Check it out!


Hi Bellas,

As you all know, I am a self-taught makeup artist.  However, after years of working in the industry I was able to work with Industry Makeup Academy.  Not only did I receive my Makeup Artist Certification, but I was also able to join the team as an Instructor and Partner.  There are so many things that took me 10 years to learn, some the hard way, as a Makeup Artist.  Still, It's amazing how many new techniques and business tips I learned after all this time.  My goal is to spread the knowledge to anyone out there who has an interest in makeup and put them on the fast track to Makeup Artist success without having to make the same mistakes I've made.  Whether you've always had a passion for it and you're looking to change your career...or if you're right out of school interested in pursuing your own business.  Gaining a Makeup Artist Certification in 4 weeks or less is an investment worth looking into.  I always get asked, do I need a Makeup Artist Certification?  Check out the post below for 7 reason why you should be certified.



Hi Bellas,

I recently opened up one of the cutest collections ever - PUR Cosmetics My LIttle Pony collection.  Seriously this brings me back to my childhood when all I cared about were bright colored ponies and glitter.  The collection is adorable especially if you're a fan of color and shimmer, check it out!

Hi Bellas,

I have been a fan of Makeup Geek aka Marlena for years.  When she came out with her makeup line, I hopped on it.  It was affordable, high quality and trend setting.  I was super excited when they shipped me some new goodies to try out.  The eyeshadows in particular are to die for.  Check it out!


Hi Bellas,

One more cruise packing video for you!  I show you how I pack my husband and my check in bags for our 4 day Cruise to the Bahamas which I just got back from.  The luggages were so small we were able to carry them on and off the boat with us without having to check them in.   Yay for light packing!  Hopefully this helps some of you with upcoming summer vacations. Check it out!
