like to save? I do!

My friend Fernanda, asked me about an Inexpensive foundation that would deliver the same results, as her Channel Foundation. So i was thinking that as a gift from me to you, I thought to show you a few products that can deliver the same results without costing you an arm and a leg. You don't always have to pay Department store prices...... when you can get almost the same thing at a drug store. Remember, not all products are created equal but these come pretty close.  If your new years resolution is to save lots of $$$ money, here are some great comparisons.  I hope that my suggestions help your pockets this year and hopefully you can save enough to hire me....hehehehe or take me on fabulous trip to do your makeup :D.

Have a wonderful New Year =)

Love Lashes? I do!!!

Hello everyone!  
As I was getting ready I  thought God how I love Eyelashes!!  So I decided to show or tell you how to put them on. Things you will need: lashes, scissors, Duo eyelash glue, and a hand mirror. 

1: Take a hand mirror and set it on a table or counter. The key is for you not to close your eye completely. Just look down into the mirror. 
2: Cut the lashes to fit your eye! I always make mine a Lil bit shorter  on the corners so it doesn't poke my eye. Other wise you'll be bothered with them all day. 
3: Pick the color glue you want to use. I always prefer the dark one because it blends in perfect with my eyeliner.  If you decide to do individual ones use the clear one. My favorite glue is the Duo!
4: Add just enough glue to the eyelash.  If you put too much it's going to take longer to put on because the glue will take longer to dry and it will also bother your eyes.  Make sure that you let it get a bit tacky so it sticks to your lash line faster. But, don't let it dry! 
5: Take a tweezer and grab the lash from the center and place it on the center of your eye on top of your own lashes, do not press just lay it over your lashes. Do the same thing on the other eye, as close as possible. Go back and press the eyelash over yours. What this does is gives the glue time to get tacky so it sticks to your lash line easier.  you don't want to have a gap in between. Otherwise it will look fake. If you need to add more eyeliner you may do so once its dry.

6: Remember keep it sexy!
You can use  lashes for a natural look or a dramatic look it all depends on the length and thickness.   Make the lashes last! Your make up has to be completely done mascara has to be put on first. That way your lashes won't look fake and you can also re-use them. 
 Have fun! You too can look like a Celebrity ;)

makeup tips

Hello everyone,  I'm so sorry I haven't posted anything, I've had busy days. After I got back from New York,  Halloween came up and I haven't had a chance to blog. I just wanted to give you pointers or may I say, make-up tips. I think that would makeup for me abandoning you for 2 weeks.

1:  Always use a transluscent loose powder under the eye so the eyeshadow your using doesn't stain your concealer and foundation. Dust off when done :)

2: use a primer on your eyelids so your eyeshadow last all day
Mac paints in canvas is one of my Favorite
2: Urban Decay Potion is also a primer, great for people with oily skin

3: Urban Decay eye shadows are amazing!

My first time

This is so weird... in my field I get to travel a lot and I'm so cool with it.  I love going to different places and exploring.  But, for some reason going to NYC for the first time has me a little nervous.  Who knows why????  Maybe I'm afraid of falling in love with it. But since this is not a working trip, I'm going to show you my small traveling makeup bag with the bare necessities....
must have: eye cream,concealer,foundation, powder,lip conditioner along with lipstick and lip gloss, eyeliner,mascara, try to pack things in pallets like the eyeshadows, eyelashes are a must for me!, I like using a different color loose powders a good way of traveling with then is by using the clear stackable containers and of course my make-up brushes

I'm Crazy for PINK!

I'm Crazy Crazy Crazy in Love with Lady Gaga Pink By: MAC
It's so pretty =)

should i wear eyeliner?

Hell yea! you should wear eyeliner!  people always ask me... " should I wear eyeliner?" of course you should!  with no doubt almost everyone should wear eyeliner. I don't care how old you are.  Eyeliner does wonders, it can open or close your eye but, most of the time it works to make you look alive and sexy. I personally LOVE, LOVE , LOVE eyeliner! one of my fav. it's the the Fluid live from MAC it saty's on so well and it doesn't smug off.  It can be used inside or outside the eye. For Example Vanessa Preziose and Satcha Pretto have a heavy eyeliner look inside and out side, Make up and hair done by ME :D

Remember eyeliner can make you or break you.... but, most likely it will make you fabulous!
