I am back from Las Vegas attending and guest speaking at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference. I discovered a few products and fun finds. Todays blog post is all about lashes for days!
LASHES are at the top of the list these days for beauty lovers deserted on an island. Mascara rules! To some faux lashes are a must instead.
FalseLashes were everywhere from faux strips to lash extensions.
Blinc Mascara is still HOT! Don’t paint your lashes tube them! Rinses off with Luke warm water and a washcloth. No running down the face black mascara eyes. No waking up with raccoon eyes.
Lash Lifts are still IN and an ever growing trend.
The beauty product women must have besides lipstick 💄 is her mascara.
Why not get some lashes for your car. Car Lashes the original! Don’t bat an 👁 eye just go give them a try! Buy a pair. They come in a set of black car lashes (which I own) pink & metallic.
Invented by a gentlemen with his supportive wife by his side Robert & Dottie Small they created and founded a GREAT quality design that continues to sweep the nation! You gotta see these lashes on my car!
So stinking CUTE! And sexy! What a great way to customize your ride.
NOT just for teens, women of all ages use them! Every time I look at mine I swoon to to the moon!
If bling is your thing LIVE a little and treat yourself to these fun, fabulous car lashes and drive to your next adventure in fashionable style!
You’ll enjoy miles of smiles and trust me people will notice!
Especially after a year and half of NO airplane ✈️ travel. not sure what to really expect this travel trip! But two flights and flying with a mask 😷 on is going to be a bit of a challenge. But I know I’ll make it. This pandemic isn’t quite over.
I’ve spent ALL day packing my luggage 🧳 , unpacking and planning my trip. Packing my clothes and beauty supplies for my class requires precise packing as it must conform to weight limits and that’s always a task for a woman! Namely me.
Don’t ya just love 💕 my luggage? I got it from TJMaxx before the pandemic and it’s so cool 😎 rolling it around. I’ve been doing the happy dance with it during the pandemic. Waiting for this time to happen and travel on an airplane again!
I’m excited to get away and guest speak at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference again. Alongside the International Beauty Show. Both shows are absolutely amazing.
I can’t wait to meet my class of beauty professionals,dermatologists,plastic surgeons and spa owners. The show attracts beauty and wellness professionals from all over the 🌎 world. It’s going to be different this year with social distancing and on and off face masks in 108 degrees.
I did. I enjoy watching the Academy Awards. And this year was looking for a sense of normalcy.
My favorite of the night was the TOTAL package on actress Margot Robbie. The after Covid new look makeover, makeup, the gorgeous gown and more! Oh and that hair I wanted more, more and more! Those bangs and side fringe were so red hot gorgeous!
I loved ❤️ loved ❤️ loved Viola Davis’s look too. That dress fit her like a glove and was so sexxxxy!
What did you think? Who was your favorite look of the night?
Did you at least peek at the show or watch a pre-Oscar entertainment show?
The makeup, the fashion and more?
It certainly was different and more down to earth and one like we’ve never seen before. Wasn’t it?
The metallic hues, shades of red, white & black and sunshine yellow on Zendaya who glowed it it. Loved the sparkle and the glowing Royal blue on Glen Close.
Pink 💕 was certainly another attention getter even the men got in on that color with a chic hot pink suit.
Brad Pitt’s man bun (I hate that term) looked tres handsome to me. And his skin was tawny and I liked his body toned suit.
Most wore accessories that were simpler and MEN got in on the jewelry action. Chains and rings. And who knew we’d see Crocs footwear and the Oscars.
Frances McDormand always makes me sad. She’s won a lot if Oscars and is a good actress but her dark, long, drab choices of clothes make me blue!
I just wish she’d at least wear a lipstick 💄 and do something with her hair. and while I live in black and love and wear bold color clothing too. I just wish we could see her look more vibrant one day soon.
And as always I wish I was there to use some Asian powder to blot up their over the top facial glow. And retouch their lipsticks and add a touch of lip balm on the men. Dry, parched lips never look hot or good.
Now that Easter has come and gone there are plenty of sales on Easter candy, plastic eggs and more!
Go stock up and pick up some plastic eggs and eat a few on sale Peeps along the way!
I love to repurpose, ♻️ recycle and reuse!
How about you? Do you like to be eco-friendly and love Mother Nature too? Do you live and love Easter 🐣 decorations and candy too?
If you use beauty sponges or blenders and don’t want to spring for an expensive travel holder for them. Use a plastic egg instead!
Make sure you buy the eggs in a few sizes to play with what ones will work for your sponge type and size. I like the ones with the tiny holes on the end. But if you can’t find them buy and use the other type.
They keep air circulating, to store them “on the go” or to store at home if you’d like. The eggs protect the sponge and keep it clean you and you too and no messy makeup fingers! Until you get a chance to wash them. As a professional make-up artist I like to use them on set on location too.

Happy Shopping 🛍 and beauty hacking!

I LOVE ❤️ Las Vegas and if you haven’t been maybe now’s the time to add it to your list of places to go when we can all travel without a care! So much to see and the eye candy is mostly FREE.

Time to start spring cleaning for your home and for your beauty routine. I know what some of you are thinking it is cold and snowy outside but here in Florida the birds are churping and it is getting HOT. It was so cold but the azaleas are in full bloom. One day it is 80 degrees the next it is 30’s.
When you can try and take some time to clean out the “beauty clutter”.
Choose a drawer, a shelf and more and explore. One area at a time. Lay out all of your things and go over each product or item.
How does it look?
Does it smell?
Are you STILL using it?
When was that? How long? If you can’t even remember maybe it’s time to throw it out!
Is it really really dirty?
Bacteria is doing the samba on your beauty, skin care and makeup tools. Think about throwing them out or wipe the containers down with rubbing alcohol and tap water. Wipe down the mirrors with a glass cleaner too.
Go ahead and do the same to your makeup brushes and sponges too. After you do place what you no longer use in the garbage and WASH your makeup brushes and tools with a makeup brush balm or brush cleaner.
If things are broken, mirrors have a chip or crack you might want to replace that product or buy something new to replace it too.
Still in the midst of the pandemic we need to keep all things super clean! Don’t take a chance with your health.
I mentioned this brand and sanitizing case before but maybe it is time you add a SterileLight disnfecting case to your home or office life. Great for beauty, skincare, makeup brushes, tech tools, iPhones and so much more!
Today while running a few quick errands I came across two women I could not stop looking at! While the were waiting on me at the cash register I was mesmerized by their lovely personality! They really seemed to love their job and happy to even have one.
I also noticed a high frost all over one of the employees faces. She shimmered, sparkled, glowed, gleamed,glimmered and looked like as shiny as the TIN Man off the Wizard of Oz movie. It was everywhere!
Inner corners of her eyes, up her nose, on the tip of her nose (She did not cover her nose with her face mask 😷 properly) and all over the apple of her cheeks. Her brow hairs even got in on the shimmer action! She too was a lovely pretty young woman who clearly overdosed on the makeup. Mainly foundation.
My beauty secret here is ALWAYS make up your face with good lighting or a sunlit window. Blend, blend,blend. Less is truly more!
And if you don’t feel like you are good at doing your own makeup 💄 or feel you’re not sure of the color choices that are right for you! Consult a beauty or skincare PRO.
When it’s safe to get an appointment for a makeup lesson. As most of us professionals are following CDC guidelines and not doing face to face or Lip 👄 to lip 👄lessons.
I think she has been watching a lot of YouTube videos! The makeup distracted me from her true beauty.
My next stop the girl had so much foundation on even with a mask. Her forehead, cheeks, lower jawline and neck I could see on all sides of the face. Her foundation was a Tan Orange. I so wanted to blend that down or give her a complete makeover right there on the spot.
