Tools of the Trade: Part II

A while ago, I received a request to do a makeup recommendation post. I’m no makeup professional by any means but I do have my own set of products that I absolutely cannot live without, which you will see listed below. I’ve never attended a makeup school but learned some great tips and tricks through…

and the way the sunlight plays upon her hair

We all know what a critical role hair plays in fashion. 80% of man’s look depends on hair, 70% for women (ok this is solely based on my opinion :P). I remember breaking up with a guy over his ugly haircut. Hair is everything (though there may be exceptions). That’s why I don’t complain that…

BB Cream Showdown

As many of you know, I’ve been crippled for a month now. While I may seem like I have all the time in the world (and I do! lol), it’s really difficult for me to use a computer, which is why it often takes me all day to complete an entry. Even this very moment,…

Let’s Make-Up.

My makeup artist friend tells me that Shu Uemura makes the best eyebrow pencil and concealer. reminds me of the 4B pencil used in drawing like the simple packaging and the rich/thick texture- Coverage is quite amazing. It’s all about packaging. lol. I love their toner bottles. Hope everyone’s having a fantabulous weekend!

Spring Cleaning

How I dry my makeup brushes: LOL Mad ghetto, I know. I think this is genius though. Since I don’t have one of those fancy brush cases that Michelle Phan uses in her video, the hubs suggested an alternate, which actually turned out awesome! In her makeup brush cleaning tutorial, Phan notes that after washing…
