There’s something about a manicure, be it low-key and neutral or blinged out and pointy à la Cardi B, that sort-of completes a look. And regardless of your personal style, nail trends in 2019 will check off all the boxes. Sure, a mani is on the smaller side and nowhere near as attention-grabbing as a…
Color is everywhere…it has never been more colorful time!
Lately I see more and more colorful hair shades and I am swooning over some of them too! This pinkish lavender looks like me. But I don’t think I’m ready for permanent that permanent a hair color. Celebrities color. Japanese girls covet it and women of all ages seem to be doing it. It seems like color is the new makeup for your hair?

Doing your makeup should not be a chore! It should be fun!!!
These makeup brushes swam into my makeup studio this week and are mermaid approved…This shipment really made our shoppers HAPPY to shop my studio Saturday too. I always like to offer the fun factor and spice things up. Aren’t they cute?
They are so lightweight.There are 4 different sizes. They are used to softly contour,can be used to apply blush or powder your face up. The smallest of them all can also be used to blend eye shadow. No they are not sable and yes the handles are not made of wood or bamboo. BUT they are fun and shout “Pick me up and play with me!”
You shouldn’t ever think makeup is a chore. It should be fun and oh so much more. I can’t stop swirling color on face with them. Not all your makeup brushes have to be the same basic ones.
So, get out there and treat yo’self to something that makes you smile and paint your face & feel playful and prettier too.
I recently had a chance to bring a fellow PROfessional makeup artist James Vincent to the TV station with me as he was in sunny Florida to guest speak at The Makeup Show in Orlando last weekend. I enjoyed chatting with him and got his take on what is going to be hot for this spring 2016 on the makeup scene.
In his 20 years in the beauty industry James has worked with Lady Gaga,our current President,Courtney Love,Liv Tyler,CNN and Reese Witherspoon to name a few.
He recognizes that innovation and technology in makeup and skin care are ever changing and that the absence of animal testing is key.
Here is a peek at his HOT for spring list that we will be wearing this season to come.
SKIN CARE: Cleanse,polish and protect are key steps to healthy skin.
Sun kissed eye lip and cheek: Peach and pink will be your go to shades for the season.
A little bit of bronzer goes a long way! However apply it only wear the sunshine usually hits your face.And he recommends you mix it with a dash of your fave blush.Don’t just use it alone.
Black Liquid Liner is always in.
Candy Apple Lips that won’t land on your hips! James recommends a blue based red gloss on top of and only in the center and another shade of red lipstick.
Blue Eyeliner and Eye shadow: Blue eyeliner and shadows get a bad wrap.but says these shades of blue really lift up the eyes and brightens up the face too. He suggests you use pencil eyeliners over liquids or creams for liner as they are easier to apply.
GLOW on: He likes Scott Barnes Body Bling (JLO’s makeup artist) as well as Melanie Mills (A La Dancing with the Stars and more) Gleam body shimmer. they both illuminate the skin on face and body.
I hope you enjoyed meeting this makeup artist and stay tuned for more interviews and tips!
