Hi all!

I just wanted to do a quick post with some of my updated work.

While in the process of updating my blog, I wanted to include some recent images:)

There is a contact form to the right for business inquiries if you would like to book a makeup session or have additional questions.

Have a beauty-ful day!

First Aid Beauty ~ Ultra Repair Cream

The Ultra Repair Cream by First Aid Beauty is a great example of a superb multi-tasker!
I absolutely love products that you can use for tons of things
(the more bang for your buck the better right?!).
I've used this many different ways including but not limited to:
1.) Apply to clients faces prior to makeup application who have
really dry skin to prevent flakiness
2.) Used as a hand cream
3.) I've even used this miracle cream on bug bites!
It states on the tube that it can be used on your face & elsewhere
which is truly no joke! 
**The picture above is the Beauty to go size at Sephora**
You can purchase at Sephora or QVC and I have attached the links below.
Stock up now so you will be set for Fall & Winter!
Dry skin be gone!!

Urban Decay B6 Vitamin infused Complexion Spray


Can we say magic spray in a bottle!
I was lucky enough to try out this spray prior to purchasing and even after just 1 use...I was hooked! (Translation ~ the second I thought I was running out, I immediately ran to my local Urban Decay counter to purchase a full size!)

This spray easily & effectively delivers much needed vitamins to our skin.  Not only did my pores reduce in size but my makeup applied much smoother when this was used as a base!

**Note I still used a primer but we have to take care of our skin to work in conjunction with our makeup:)

How to use:  After you cleanse your skin, shake product well then spray directly on face (about 8-10 inches away) prior to moisturizer.  I like to do 3 sprays (each side & center) and that seems to work perfectly.  **Can also be used a.m./p.m. & as a refresher throughout the day**

Thank you Urban Decay for once again developing a product that truly delivers!!

We're off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz!  (And it doesn't hurt to have a fab palette to primp your face with on the way!!)
Urban Decay has done it once again!!     With the exciting release of Disney's new movie "Oz:  The Great and Powerful" ( opening March 8,2013), UD has created 2 palettes that ever so cleverly tie back to the movie!
From super fun themed palette cases, to the names of the shadows such as Spell, tornado & Oz!!!  These will be sure to go fast so pick one up before they get swept away!!!
They will retail for $49 and are scheduled to be available in stores the first weekend of February.

**Update ~ they are available as of today 1/23/13 on www.urbandecay.com**

**Latest update ~ this post was from last year but I have noticed these are still available on Ebay if interested**

Holy Jerseyliscious volume Batman!!!

Hi Beauty gals & gents!
I just discovered this fabulous new hair product that I'm not sure how I lived without!!!  If you want to achieve amazing volume without having to tease your hair a ton, look no further! 

This POWerful volume maximizer is called Powder Play POW by "Big Sexy Hair".

This is the coolest thing since sliced bread!!  (Well I don't really know when sliced bread was invented but I promise you will love this!!!))

How they advise to use:  Apply at the root on dry hair for an instant lift.  Sprinkle through hair for lightweight texture, separation & control.

I like to tease the hair just a smidge & while you have the lifted piece of hair up, sprinkle a bit at the root...mush around a bit and voila!  You have glorious volume!!

Hope you are having a beauty-ful day and stay tuned for more great finds!!
