Look: Happy Halloween!

I know I know, long time, no post! I actually am home all weekend, and I did a neat little Halloween look to go out to lunch and hang around the house with, and I took the time to take pictures and post it for you! :-) I’m not really into costumes and crazy (crazier?) makeup. MAC actually asked me to work today, but I passed, as I am surely not experienced at doing halloween makeup. So what kind of makeup do you wear on halloween when you don’t wear a costume? Black and Orange of course! It looks really nice IRL…the fade looks fantastic, but I’m not sure how well the camera captured it. But also, this is a neat look for me because it’s the first one I’ve documented in our new house!!! :-D

I hope you all have a fun, safe, and Happy Halloween!!!

Look: All About Yaby!

I told you about when I first discovered Yaby products right? I was at a salon by LAX, and one of my friends who is also into makeup, told me I HAVE to try these pearl paints by Yaby. Of course I had never heard of the up and coming brand from Toronto, but I trusted her. Normally, I don’t give a second look to brands I haven’t heard of (horrible of me or not)…there are enough brands that I have heard of and haven’t tried. She showed me how wonderful they were, how cool the palette is, and how inexpensive they are.

Anyway, I love this brand. I have nearly every Pearl Paint color and some of the regular shadows too. So this is a look I did with some of those colors.

Look: Photo Realism Quad: Fresh Approach

I don’t have a lot of time to write, so I’ll make it short and sweet. This is one of my most favorite quads since MAC came out with the Sweetie Cakes quad several (3+) years ago. This is the Fresh Approach look that I wore when I worked for MAC that weekend that Makeup Art Cosmetics launched.
