Book reccomendation

A few of you asked me to list which books/author I was talking about in this video:

Paulo Coelho - http://www.paulocoelho.com.br/engl/

^ His blog is amazing! I especially love his Warrior of Light section.
Any one of his books is amazing. I've happened to read all of them at the right time in my life, if that makes any sense. If you're not sure where to start though, "The Alchemist" is a great one to start with. Each one of his books has an image of a tree in the back, with a single word describing each book like "Obsession" "Faith" etc I've based how I chose which book to read next by that tree-image and have been pleasantly surprised every time.

Cross country move

Soooo, I know I haven't updated in about a week. My apologies!! I was/am in the middle of moving back to California. I'm just barely getting settled in and have very limited use of a computer for the next few days. In any case, now that I have access to all of my makeup (I only brought about half of it to New York), I can do many more of your tutorial requests (using limited edition/discontinued colors etc) I will attempt to do a few videos in the next few days, so make sure to check back :)

My kit

A lot of you have asked what my kit looks like and what's in it. Here's a video showing you. Please dont ask for specific color names. It would take forever to list them!! And I believe that each artist has the colors THEY need and the brands/lines THEY like - everyone is different. I will be happy with my kit, the day I have a wide variety of products from various lines, not just MAC, and I have learned how to airbrush! :)

The Makeup Show NYC

Tomorrow I will be at the Makeup Show! And I will record to share with you all :)

Smokey "Haze" Tutorial and Photo

Those of you who might be reading this who are mac addicts probably better understand the "Haze" in quotations. In any case, someone requested a look using Haze eyeshadow, but I don't have it with me in NY. SO instead, I improvised using Cornflower pigment and shade fluidline to add some green to the mix. Not having my Femme Noir, made this look a little different than I would have liked to be honest :/ My crease ended up a tad on the shimmery side.



Pink Hair

A few people wanted to see my hair when it was pink...I miss it *sniff*



Makeup ^ was... Eyes: texture, hot poppy, vanilla, pink fuschia, tendered and shu uemura lashes

Cheeks: Ladyblush b/c

Lips: Pink Fuschia l/l Heatherette l/s and Wanderlust lacquer

Calypso Mineral Beauty Review

Calypso Mineral Beauty
is quite possibly my new favorite makeup line. Seriously. They're identical to MAC in regards to pigmentation BUT not only are they cheaper, the line uses all natural minerals that are actually good for skin and zero fillers! So you actually get what you pay for. :D

The placement or angles of the liner is a leettttle off but ah well...
