The Make-Up Experience

 

highlighting

On Saturday, October 29th started as a day I planned to be a volunteer model to help a friend for her final exam in makeup artistry, but little did I know Saturday would turn into a fun filled day of watching and learning some of the best makeup techniques.  The excitement took place at the renowned Gwynnis Mosby Makeup Academy, which offers make up classes such as: Basic Principles in Makeup Artistry, Just Eyes, The Everyday Woman, Bridal, Airbrushing and many more.  I had the pleasure of having my makeup done by my friend and newly graduated makeup artist Bayo, who styled me in one of her custom signature pieces from her BayoKemistry clothing line. The makeup skills she obtained in just two short weeks was absolutely remarkable. Ms. Gwynnis offered top notch customer service to the graduate makeup artists and models and made the day even more enjoyable. I am personally looking forward to taking a makeup class in the very near future!

15 Shades of Kerry

Do you have trouble finding a nail color? Or do you select what you  think is a fab color just to find during the application process that  this color is ALL WRONG? That uncertainty ends now, since the beautiful and talented “Kerry Washington” (2016 Creative Ambassador for OPI) launched the OPI Washington, D.C. Collection, 15 brilliant colors which offer a range of colors from ‘Pale to the Chief’ (light) to ‘Shh….It’s top secret’ (dark).

As I walked into the nail salon yesterday for a quick pedicure, I noticed Kerry Washington’s OPI Washington, D.C. collection on display.             I selected the color ‘Never a Dulles moment’ which is a striking color to transition from summer to fall. I am in love with Kerry Washington’s fall/winter OPI nail colors and with every visit to my nail salon, I look forward to making it through all 15 amazing shades throughout the new season.  

 

Product Rave: Concealer

Dark circles be gone! I must share with you my favorite cover-up for dark circles. The studio Conceal & Correct Duo by M.A.C using conceal & correct duo is now a part of my daily routine. Looking back at years of using powder, on top of foundation, on top of concealer and still seeing darkness is now over. Priced at $26.
