Holiday Neutral Makeup

Hi Dolls! I hope everyone is well-rested from Thanksgiving break. I think I may need to go to the gym everyday this week, with the amount of food I ate lol.
With Christmas approaching, I decided to get right into the Holiday spirit with this look. I have many looks in mind, but I wanted to create a look for the not so daring people. I can guarantee your going to see lots of glitter in upcoming posts. Until then, I hope you all like the look 😉

Hey Dolls, I missed you all! I hope everyone had an AMAZING Holiday.  I don’t know where the year went, but it’s about to be a new year.

I guess I’ve been so overwhelmed with life’s obstacles that I forgot my blog turned 1 this month (hides face). I know…..I know….. tisk tisk. I wanted to take the time out to thank those who read my blog, and those who follow me on Twitter & Bloggers. I really appreciate you dolls for taking the time out of your busy schedules to read my beauty blog. In just one year, I met some amazing people that share the same passion as I. I wish I could hug each one of you, THANK YOU AGAIN. Regular postings will start next week. You dolls ROCK!!!!!

The Makeup Show 2012: My Experience & Haul

First and foremost,with a outstanding win, I am happy Barack Obama won the 2012 presidential election! 

This week I attended the Makeup Show in Orlando. For those who are unaware of the Makeup Show, it is an event held once a year, which brings together brands, makeup artist and students. At the event you will find: awesome brands, discounted products, seminars, and workshops.

This year the Makeup Show was held at the Peabody Hotel. I was ecstatic to go, since it was my first time going. Once I arrived, I noticed there weren’t many exhibitors (Kevyn Aucoin was listed, but wasn’t there), and inside was a semi-packed crowd. My first stop was a seminar held by Celebrity makeup artist AJ Crimson. AJ gave valuable information on branding, and building a name for yourself. In addition, he introduced his new makeup collection, which is now available for purchase. I wanted to get to the Makeup Forever booth, but majority of beauty addicts were there, so I went to go check out other brands. My next stop was Inglot Cosmetics, while there were a few people in line, I managed to swatch some products, and ask questions, I’ve heard so many great things about Inglot Cosmetics on Youtube, and from other beauty bloggers. I even ran into the lovely KoKoFemme from Youtube, if you have n YT account, be sure to subscribe to her channel. It was only right I got a freedom palette (neutral colors), and a concealer. Although there were items I wanted, I only ended up getting a few things that I needed. I made my way to each booth, but made final purchases from Crown Brush, Ofra Cosmetics, Stila Cosmetics. After 3 hours of pure beauty bliss, I was exhausted and ready to go home. I had an awesome time at the Makeup Show, and will definitely go again next year 😉
