Hello Beauties! August certainly kept me working a lot with my clients and stores. I am taking the next few days to enjoy the most beautiful time of the year, September in New York. . . mint tea and writing alllll day, cleaning brushes, restocking the kit, making some homemade lip whip & most importantly spending lots of time with my loved ones — beaut & furry babies.
When I travel I certainly have my products that make me happy and have recently had an impact in my kit — so today I am giving the products below a standing ovation. They are currently shining in my kits spotlight — making my jobs more beautiful!
No. o1 These Great Lash Colored Mascaras by Maybelline New York were August limited edition, but you still may find a few left on the shelves so if you are reading this. . . happy hunting! They are ridiculously striking colors and they have been making a huge impact on my clients. *Tip: the colors are buildable and can be intensified with baby powder in between coats. I have recently been using these colors very subtly. . .popping some color to my bottom lashes and just at the outer corners of the eyes for that extra pop. Limited Edition. Run out and get them now!
No. o2 The clear and brown sculpting brow gel by Ardell is one of my clients favorite products I use on them who prefer I not fill there eyebrows in with a pencil. I use a clear or colored brow gel when I want to achieve a polished but no so perfect effect after grooming. LOVE!
No. o3 One of my favorite beauty brands, Illamsqua created a series of mini palettes allowing you to create many different defining smokey eye looks. I loooove this Empower Palette right now! #EMpower ;)
No. o4 Samantha Chapman is a makeup artist based in Norwich and she created these affordable pixel perfect, and oh so colorful and affordable makeup brush line. Her Real Techniques line is made of suuuper soft fibers that help me create a flawless, high-definition finish in any type of light – from sunlight to harsh indoor lighting.
No. o5 A multi-use Baked Bronzer by Sephora perfectly coordinated duet in one compact for that glowy/highlighted contour effect or setting powder.
No. o6 I never leave my home without a travel size of the organic brushing rinse by Essential Oxygen. This product along with the 3% hydrogen peroxide is the perfect product I recommend to every client looking to get whiter teeth, healthier gums, remove tarter and freshen breath (great for the client who has “morning mouth” . . . yuk! ; ).
No. o7 Thank you, Smashbox for creating a sanitary packaging system for professional makeup artists. The signature grinder shaves off just the right amount so I can easily transfer the pigment to a separate metal palette without double dipping, keeping everything super sanitary! I am not sure if the product development team was thinking of professional makeup artist when they created this unique packaging, but I just love it!
