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!

TOO FACED CHOCOLATE BON BONS PALETTE REVIEW


Hi Glam-ettes!

Hope everyone had happy holidays and a great start to the new year!

Today I am excited to review Too Faced newest makeup addition:

I have actually been freelancing as a Makeup Artist for Too Faced at Macy's and Ulta, and when I learned about this launch I couldn't wait to get my hands on it!

I was so happy when my husband purchased this palette for me for Christmas!

Chocolate Bon Bons palette



Its the 3rd release from the Chocolate Bar eyeshadow collection,preceding was the original Chocolate Bar,then Semi-Sweet.

I alternate these palettes everyday,they have been my favorite shadows next to Viseart for the last year.

First of all,

The packaging is gorgeous..it's PINK! 

Like all of Too Faced products,their presentation is so cute and girly.

Its smells like chocolate,it's infused with antioxidant rich Cocoa powder pigments which apply very smooth and creamy.





The shades are neutral with pops of color,making it great for everyday use.

It has quickly become my favorite palette.

I really like the new heart shaped pans,it adds an extra feminine flair!

I will soon do a Youtube video review swatching the shades.



It's $49, same pricing as the others.

It's well worth it in my opinion as it will last a long time with the pigmentation being so rich.

You can get the palette here.

What do you think about this new palette?

WORKING FOR TV SHOW "OUTBACK NATION" WITH JAMIE DURIE

Hi friends!



I had an amazing opportunity to work on an incredible TV show for  
 FYI/A&E Networks for 2 episodes.

It's called "Outback Nation" starring Jamie Durie,who's from "the land down under"..


AUSTRALIA!

If you haven't seen the show,it's a must see! 

It's a backyard home makeover show.

He transforms literally families overgrown jungles into paradise!

The first time he met me, he said "well aren't you just a little ray of sunshine"!

That made me feel good :)

I did the hair & makeup for him,and he was such a pleasure to work with. 

I love being on set (even though they're long days..12 hour set days!)

We trekked on through the rain and cold, to create perfection.

I even assisted the PA's (Production assistants) through various tasks when I wasn't touching up Jamie.

It was truly a great experience,and the production crew were amazing. 

Thanks to my friend Mandy for referring me this job.

The best part..to see the fruits of your labor..on national TV :)


You can watch the episodes here..I did the "hage house" and "skunk" episodes!


Tata for now,

Sarah Nikole
