Photoshoot fun!

I had the opportunity to work on a photoshoot on saturday. Seriously had SO much fun! 

The shoot was inspired by Beneath the Starry Sky by Emily Soto, check it out here

Makeup was more of a neutral natural smoky eye with really dark reddish cranberry lips. 
The two models were so sweet and wonderful to work with. I did makeup for the beautiful miss Cait and then  a friend of my husband's wife, Sara, ( who is also a MUA) helped out with the other model, beautiful miss Courtney. It was soooo soooo much fun to work with another MUA!

Here's a sneak peak!!

More to come soon!

Halloween is just around the corner!

With Halloween coming soon, I thought I would spend sometime doing fun makeup tutorials that you can use for halloween costume ideas!

I'm thinking about posting an owl look. One of my close friends emailed me yesterday and asked if I could help out with an owl look for her halloween costume! .... Which halloween look would you like to see?!

Any other suggestions are welcomed! Let me know and I will get to work and have some fun tutorials for you guys! =)

Yay! So, Let's get started!

Makeup I used:

Gluestick (to erase eyebrows)
Cream White Base (I just used a face paint in white)
Matte White Eyeshadow
Cork by MAC (matte brown eyeshadow)
FireFly by Bare Escentuals (Medium shimmery reddish brown)
Backstage by Jemma Kidd (shimmery dark charcoal grey)
Matte Light Blue Eyeshadow
Wet n Wild Eyeliners in Charcoal, Taupe, Dark Blue, Sky Blue and Black Brown
Black Liquid Eyeliner
False Lashes (I used Red Cherry #1 on top and ardells #21 on the bottom)
Rhinestones (bought at local craft store)
Feathers (also bought at local craft store)

Lip liner- I actually used a white eyeliner by wet n wild and then dabbed yellow and orange eyeshadows on the lips then I went over them with a clear gloss

On a side note, warning when you watch this video...its my very first video and I think I might need some practice! hahaha sooooo if you don't mind my kids in the background and me trying to tape myself doing makeup at the same time then watch on! I will definitely go take some lessons right now on how to do better videos!! oops hahahahah...
so, here we go!

Yummy Fall Homemade Facial Mask

Fall is in the air and I absolutely LOOOOVVVVEE it! I wish it could stay like this all year round. I have been super busy doing all sorts of fall stuff with my kids. We made pumpkin spice pancakes for breakfast and went for a walk to look at different colors of leaves, I think I am probably having more fun though! I just LOVE everything about fall, apples, pumpkin patches, leaves changing colors and all the yummy recipes you can make with cinnamon and nutmeg. 
So, I follow this site called the Krazycouponlady, have you ever heard of it? Such an awesome site that helps you find the best deals on stuff and teaches you how to become a crazy coupon lady! =) Anyways, today I was reading on there and the latest post was about how to make a facial mask from ingredients that you already have at home! So since I like to save money on beauty stuff I thought I could share this with you guys! You can go here to see her post. 

Here's a picture of me with the homemade mask on!

All it is, is 3 simple ingredients!

(I cut the recipe in half of what she said to do)

1 tbsp Honey
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg

Mix them all together to create a yummy smelling paste and slather that on all over your face!
Seriously, smelt like fall on my face! hahaha

I left mine on for about 20 minutes...She say's to leave it on for 30 minutes but mine started to burn alittle bit but that's just because my skin is sensitive. So if you have to leave it on for 10-15 min that's fine too, do whatever feels right for your skin! 

After I washed this baby off oh man let me just tell you how soft my skin was! My husband came home for lunch while I was wearing the mask, he was like "what the heck?!" haha. So after I washed it off I made him feel how soft my face was cause dang, seriously SO flipping soft! He agreed, it was pretty soft! haha =)

So there ya go! Go try it! I promise you will LOVE it!
