Nurturing Force® Blot Out Offensive™ VERSATILITY AND EASE OF USE – 4.7/5 Scoop out with a spatula onto a palette and with a damp sponge, apply to area. Too bad it’s not in a pump so you require a spatula if you want to keep it sanitary. Spreads very nicely and not messy.

How to do Black / Dark Skin Makeup without it turning ashy!

|

For Jimay’s skin, I used: – Primarily Face Atelier’s HEAT & 0++ mixed together, more of HEAT color – I put a bit of Keromask’s YELLOW shade into the mix, just a dab. – Graftobian’s HD powder in Hidden Magic The reason being, if you don’t use yellow-red = orange based products, you will get an ash layer or a dry looking shade. Darker skintones have a yellow-red underbase and unless you use products with that underbase, you’re going to … Read More

Toner is (almost) a Must Have!

This is almost a must do step before you sleep! Have you ever tried using toner on a cotton pad after you thoroughly cleanse your face? I almost guarantee if you use it all over your face, neck, decollete, ears, etc. you will have some residue left on your pad! Currently I use ALBION Skin Conditioner Toner and it helps keep my skin super smooth, moisturized and clean. Try it tonight with your toner and let me know if it … Read More

So lately I’ve been so busy! Every weekend has been jam packed with weddings, clients, photo shoots and many wonderful things. I’m so appreciative that I have many clients to service with my love for beauty on. I remember when I first wondered what it would be like if I serviced brides as a makeup artist. I loved sharing tips and showing how women can be so beautiful if they could just see it! I’m so happy I’ve been able … Read More

Alessandro Nail Calcium Strengthener Review

|

This is my secret when it comes to having strong, thicker and beautiful nails! I buy it at Donato’s for $25.50 and this little green nail polish jar pretty much sums up the Holy grail of nail strengtheners. I’ve tried organic lines, OPI, and pretty much a lot of nail salon brands and it just doesn’t sum up for how awesome this is. Plain and simple, it just works! I apply it to a clean, dry nail bed and just … Read More
