PRODUCT REVIEW: HIGH END FOUNDATIONS

Hey everyone, It’s Friday again, a day for product reviews……:) So I saw this video by WAYNE GOSS, and he titled the video “FAIL! WORST HIGH END FOUNDATIONS!” loooooool!!!! This guy is just hilarious!!!!! He’s so blunt in his reviews, sometimes I feel for the makers of the product. He would analyze it so well you would completely loose interest in even giving it a try lmao….. I guess that’s why I love his videos. I won’t have to go through the process of buying a not so good product and getting upset later.Lol Here’s the video guys, see for yourself and let me know what you think…..:)

LOVE IT OR LOATHE IT- EYELINER TATOO: VIDEO BY KANDEE JOHNSON.

Hey guys, I watched this youtube video a while back by Kandee Johnson, It’s about a temporary eyeliner tattoo. Has anyone heard about it or used this before? Michelle phan also has a video on it……. It’s a fun way of expressing yourself and also for those who have difficulties in getting their liners right, it’s an easy way out for you. Basically all you need to do is cut it out, stick it on and you’re ready to go. And guess what? They’re totally affordable *grin*. You can get pack of 16 stickers for $2 or $3. It lasts up to 16 hours, and they come in different styles and colors. There’s a lip tattoo as well, I would be doing a post on it soon, so watch out for it…….:) But until then, here’s a video on how to use the eyeliner tattoo……. What do you think guys? Would you love it, or loathe it?

DIY: LIPSTICK PALLETE

Many a time I get tired of carrying so many different lipsticks or lip gloss in one purse. It gets so tiring, apart from the fact that most times the purse gets heavy due to the different products meant for different purposes in the purse. That’s one, two Imagine (makeup artists would relate more with this) having a bag full of high end lipsticks or that favorite lip color you love and then you loose the bag or some of your products…..It is really painful trust. Makeup artists suffer this a lot especially when they have to work in a crowded place it gets all crazy and if you are not careful or observant, your products get missing. Palletes come in very handy anyday, anytime. Sometimes your favorite lipgloss falls and breaks obviously it’s already useless but don’t toss the content with the bottle just yet, you can empty it into a storage can. There are …

A Tribute to Talia Castellano – An Inspiration to Makeup Artists of All Ages

Hey Guys! As most of you know, Talia Castellano popularly known as “Covergirl” finally lost her battle to cancer last week Wednesday *sad face*. To tell the truth I was heart broken. I cried and could barely go to bed that night. She was such an inspiring young girl even on her hospital bed she was always smiling. I remember the first time I came across her videos on YouTube I was still training as a makeup artist and I was having trouble meeting up with the standard of my boss looool. It was harder work than I expected, but then again I guess it’s because I started off with the mindset that’s it’s just makeup.. right? But I sure got more than I bargained for looool. (I love n appreciate you Lola.. thanks for the training.. cough cough).
