Sacramento Magazine Shoot

Makeup for Sacramento Magazine Cover

This was a cool Gig...

This is so long over due.

If you know me, I am a big morning news junkie. I like to know whats going on in the world and especially locally.
When I got the call if I wanted to do makeup for the cover of Sacramento Magazine again  and touch ups for the inside spread. UMM..Yeah!!! I knew it was going to be FANTASTIC!
I met some pretty cool people over the 3 days. A few I had met before. Even did makeup on the beautiful Bethany a few weeks prior to the shoot, so who knew....
I can truly say they were all very nice and just like they are on TV, so kind face to face. It was an honor to be part of this cover.

Dark Circles

Dark circles no more...

Sunday Secrets

Do you naturally have dark circles or do the bags under your eyes give an illustion that you have them?

I have bags under my eyes especially if I don't sleep good (can't remember the last time I had a good night sleep).

Have I got a great tip for you.

Thank you Sephora  for the free gift I received.
A while ago I bought some makeup from Sephora "big suprise"
I save points with my reward card. I like to save points so if they have something great, for the 500 points, I will always have enough to get the gift.
That day they happened to have Smashbox  photo finish lid primer for 100 points. I love smashbox so I decided 100 points would not kill me. I took it home and forgot about it for about a week.
I was getting ready one morning and I saw the tube and thought it was a concealer and put it on like I would a concealer under my eyes. (I always put on after my foundation)  when I put it on I thought to myself "where have you been all my life?" OMG my bags were gone. I looked at the tube and it said lid primer. What??? Who knew? My bags are gone. I wore it all day and my eyes still looked great. I have used it ever since.
I absolutely love it. Try it as a undereye concealer or a lid primer. either way it stays on all day.
Use it sparingly, a little goes a long way.

The only bad thing about this is its for light to medium skin tone. If you are dark skined it will not work.

Making Lip Gloss

Lets make some Lipgloss.

Sunday Secrets

Who doesn't like lip gloss? And who doesn't have clear gloss laying around? I always have one in my kit and one at home as well. I love this really inexpencive one MAX. It's  $2.00  and it is exactly like MAC but so much cheaper. I have both but for making your own lip gloss, use a cheaper one.
Take a small container and pour some lipgloss into the container .You can even make it with Vasalline if you do not have gloss..
Next you will find a pigment (loose eyeshadow) and mix it into the container and mix till blended together. Add more pigment if you want more color.

MAC pigment

Clear containers

  Beautiful Gloss everytime.
