New looks- new fun

Alright, so I'm trying to post some good pics of a couple of looks I've done recently- but seriously? blogspot is being a pain ugh...So, I'm gonna give it a try again laterr.

One of the looks was inspired by the Almay intense eye color collection for blue eyes,but I just pumped up the color a tad bit more- realllly intense and so cool.

The second look was for, one of my favorite sites. Marlena( whom I lovee) puts up a weekly challenge and this gold and pink look was for this week...hopefully the pictures so up! ugh.

A lot of people ask me what my favorite drugstore brands are, so here's a list of some of my favorite products that I like to get a cvs, walmart etc.

Eyelights mascara is sooo good, i have it for all my clients eye colors- no smudge, no budge
Lipstain- helloooo magic marker. Fool proof stain that really lasts a long time, good neutral colors as well

Intense eye color collection-fanastic colors chosen for each eye color
Smart match foundations- really, truly work

Creme Liners- so easy to work with, foolproof application makes wings and flicks easier to apply.

Lash tubes extension mascara: Love this mascara, it has the primer to use first and the black really forms a tube around your natural lashes and extens them outwards and upwards.

Okay, this is getting a little long, i apologize. lol Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend! <3 laurie

Hot fun in the Summer timeeee....

Uh, it has been an absolutely insane summer for me. I'm transferring to another b&n, closer to my home, so I'm just working like a dog. Tomorrow is going to be the first time I really get to relax, ON THE BEAAACCHHH. I can't wait. I have to go to the beach every summer, its a necessity for me.
So, after I'm all tanned and relaxed i will come home and work on a couple of looks for my friend who is going to be a bridesmaid for her cousins wedding. I'm not actually available to do her makeup for the wedding so I'm just gonna give her some ideas.

No, but seriously, she's amazing- great makeup artist. I love all her videos and she's sooo knowledgeable. Just finished watching a couple of her looks, so I'm gonna recreate one for my next blog. Maybe a cool smokey purple look? or great smokey gray/blue smoked look? Maybe I'll just do them all.

Hope everyone is having an awesome weekend.

Review: Benefit's Erase Paste

Hi all you beauty's,

Hope everyone had a good Sunday. I pretty much worked the whole day, gotta make the dough for my next haul lol. So, as I promised here is my review for Benefit's Erase Paste.

Price: $26

Size: 0.15 oz

Options: Colors in Fair, Medium, and Deep

Would I buy again?: Yes

In this little pot, Benefit's Erase paste packs a strong under eye concealer/brightener. It is really a paste, very thick. So, most people tend to warm up the product on the back of your hand and apply it with the included spatula, your ring finger, or a sponge. The coverage is great- gives my undereye area an instant lift, and the creaminess allows the product to blend easily. The only real con to the product is that Benefit hasn't released many color choices, the same with Boi-ing, Benefit's industrial strength concealer. I've almost gotten use to buying items that are so small, and are a little pricey, but last forever because of the strength of the product. I highly recommend this for anyone who needs cover for dark undereye circles.

Hope this helps all of you who are looking for a good concealer. Got questions? I may have some answers LOL
Have a good night everyone
stay beautiful <3>

Ok.... so I totally didn't know that the pic at the top of my page was gonna be that huge...haha I have to find some time to really try and find a better layout.

Anywayyysss, tomorrow I'm meeting with my step sister for a consultation for her sweet sixteen. I'm anticipating doing 3 or 4 girls that day, as well as my makeup. If I can get my camera to work I will definately post pics of the looks I tried out on her.

I'm awaiting a response for a macpro card. I need some studio fix products, and the discount is always helpful. I hear about how long it takes...up to like 8 weeks...holy crow. And I'm keeping on the lookout for the next beauty show in the city...hopefully its soon!

Kandee Johnson just finished a Gwen Stefan look- I'm gonna go watch it...Kandee is awesome!

Hope everyone is having a great night

stay beautiful, you
