It was another successful year at The Makeup Show!

The blogger preview featuring James Vincent was wonderful as usual,this time he went more in-depth with his artistry background.

WINTER SKINCARE AND MAKEUP ESSENTIALS

Hi loves,

Is the cold weather giving you the Winter blues?

It's always important to have a good skincare regimen,especially in the Winter because your skin tends to be drier,therefore needs more hydration to combat the dehydration and dullness,to plump up your skin.




Some of my current winter regimen;which I received for testing purposes from Octoly.


This is great moisturizer for hydrating the skin with a lightweight texture,that feels refreshing and replenishing to the skin.


This is serum is potent,and plant derived to provide the best moisture retainment.


I love the satin,brightening finish of this lightweight,medium coverage foundation.

This is my first time trying this swiss brand and I'm impressed.

If you're looking a natural foundation,with decent coverage this may be the one for you.

Pictured is the shade "Saga" which was slightly to light for my fair skin tone.

I also enjoyed the Idun Minerals Foundation brush for a flawless application.

Lastly, I had the opportunity to try the new Cargo Cosmetics swimmables eye pencil kit that's limited edition.

It includes 4 full size shades:

Black Sea - black
Karon Beach - purple pearl
Pebble Beach - brown
Loch Ness - navy

The pencils are super creamy,and waterproof,hence the name! 

The texture of the pencils glided on easily..no tugging or dragging here.

It's a $72 value for $25!

What are some of your winter favorites?

TOO FACED FUNFETTI MAKEUP COLLECTION REVIEW


Hello Glamettes!

Hope you all had wonderful holidays and a Happy New Year.

2016 seeemed to go by in the blink of an eye!

2017 is a fresh start,that means more makeup,more reviews!

Today I have a gorgeous set by Too Faced I want to review.

Take a look at this beautiful set..doesn't it make you swoon?!



This is the Too Faced Funfetti 5 piece limited edition collection.

It's actually a HSN exclusive set.

I'm an avid Too Faced lover;when I saw it I knew I had to have it!

It so gorgeous and the colors are neutral so it's suitable for day to night use.

Too Faced rarely does large sets,and this was especially appealing because of the value.

It includes:

  • .36 oz. Funfetti Eye Shadow Palette
  • .21 oz. Love Flush Blush - Funfetti (brightening peachy pink shade)
  • .10 fl. oz. Funfetti Lip Gloss - Mocha Freeze (bronze)
  • .27 fl. oz. Better Than Sex Mascara - Black
  • Heart Flatbuki Brush

Normally,one tube of Better than Sex mascara with run you $23..the eyeshadow palettes are typically $45-$50.

This entire collection is only $68!

One of my favorite pieces is the blush.

I love the texture,quality and pigmentation.

The only piece I wasn't crazy about is the gloss as I'm more of a fan of pink shades..other than that I absolutely adore this set and believe it's worth every penny!

Did you get the Funfetti collection?

What did you think? 

I'd love to hear your thoughts!

I actually did the Joker makeup in about 25 minutes.

Here's some photos!










We had a blast at the MNSSHP! 

You get to trick or treat,see a special halloween parade and fireworks,but best of all..

GETTING EYELASH EXTENSIONS FOR THE FIRST TIME!


Hola Glam Fam!

Me after my first full set!


Have you ever wondered what it's like to get eyelash extensions?

Celebrities and socialites have been getting the service for awhile now;but they've become increasingly popular for those who want to wake up with big,beautiful and luxurious lashes!

I've been wanting to try to them for sometime now;working in the beauty industry many of my clients and friends have them.

I have very thin,sparse lashes so having extensions was always appealing to me.

I had an amazing opportunity to get lash extensions,so I'll cover the basics as well as my experience!

My lash technician is the amazing Cyn from Sinful lashes.

So you're taking the plunge..what to do prior to your appointment:

Make sure you wear minimal makeup.

Bring headphones if you wish (an initial full set could range from 1-2 hours)

Wear something comfortable.

Now you're ready!

Your lash tech will ask you what type of lashes you prefer.

I chose a "babydoll" look..to open my eyes more and look more fun & flirty.

During the application process,the lash technician will apply pad/tape to your lower lashes..then start adding synthetic/natural lashes to your own..one by one.

Most people fall asleep,as you're on a comfortable massage type table,and it's not painful at all.

When we were finished with my lashes for the first time,I was amazed!

The volume,length and everything I had desired for my eyes was what I hoped for and more!

It would take me 5-6 coats of mascara or a pair of false lashes to equal how my lashes look.

Cyn was very professional,efficient and always makes sure you are satisfied (how could I not be?!).

Maintenance:

You can't get the lashes wet 24-48 hours while the glue sets.

You must use an oil free make-up remover,and be gentle on your eyes.

Your lashes have a growth phase where they shed naturally,so don't be alarmed when lashes fall out from time to time..they do shed anyway you just don't notice it as much.

You can expect to get a fill every 2-3 weeks depending on how fast your hair grows/sheds.


Some things to consider before getting extensions are maintenance and cost.

You can't be harsh on your eyes/lashes.

Cyn from Sinful Lashes has extremely reasonable pricing compared to what some people charge;and she can come to you! 

Once you get them,you'll be addicted and won't want to go without them!

The amount of money you'll save by not purchasing mascara every month is well worth having extensions,not to mention you can go swimming and do other activities without getting panda eyes!

Overall, I am very happy with the extensions,I can wake up and wear less eye makeup because my lashes make my eyes pop.

Check out Sinful Lashes By Cyn..she's in the Tampa/Brandon area and does travel!

She's also a very talented Makeup artist & Hair Stylist!

Here's her contact info:




Let her know Sarah from Sweet Glamour Makeup referred you for a special rate!

THE MAKEUP SHOW ORLANDO 2016 RECAP AND HAUL!

Hi friends!

I've been meaning to post this for awhile now,but life always seems to get in the way.

Anyways,I had another amazing year at The Makeup Show;

I got to attend the beauty bloggers press preview event again with James Vincent as the host.

As usual,he was full of brilliant ideas and stories.

What I love about him is that we have a similar background..we both worked at MAC Cosmetics for years before launching our own freelance career.

Now he is an Industry expert and world renowned makeup artist.

He is a hub of inspiration!

I also got to see and reconnect with some of my blogger friends.

After the event,I worked at the Frends Beauty booth as I do every year.

It was very hectic,crazy and fun..I had just a little time to shop but we were having a wonderful time meeting some awesome people.

The highlight of the show for me was meeting Eve Pearl and Scott Barnes,celebrity MUAs.

Eve Pearl had a booth 2 down from Frends,and I was so happy to meet her.

She is one of the most humble,down to earth people I have ever met.

Her work in incredible,she is a 5 time Emmy award winner!

She was so generous and even gave me some of her products to review,which will be coming soon! :)

Overall,
The Makeup Show is absolutely amazing,and I feel like it really brings the makeup community together.

Check out some photos from the show!
