Yorktown Hotel Wedding 9/2/12

Today I am happy to share with you a recent wedding.
I had the pleasure of working with Fallon, not only a beautiful bride but a very warm and breathtaking person.
Pictures were captured by the amazing Artistic Difference Photography team.
I’ve had a few brides in the past and some in the near future that are using them and I am always pleased to see the pictures.
This beautiful wedding took place 9/2/12 at the lovely Yorktown Hotel in York, PA. Makeup done by my lovely assistant Nath and I. 

Please enjoy the pictures as much as I did.

Rain or Shine 9/2/12

Hello everyone,
Today I wanted to share a recent wedding. Wedding was at the Lancaster Host Hotel. I provided airbrush makeup services to the bride, mob, mog and her lovely sister. I had a great time working with Katie and her family. I knew from our trial session that she and I would get along so well. She has such a beautiful personality.

Unfortunately the rain started in the early morning so the plans of the outside wedding were moved inside. However this bride didn’t let that stop her for marrying her soul mate and having a great time!

New Mac Pro Palette

Hello everyone,

I am a little behind on posting. I promise I will get on it as soon as I can. I have some recent hauls that certainly deserve some swatches and reviews.

This weekend while in Philadelphia, I stopped by the King of Prussia Mall. Of course I had to stop in by the MAC Cosmetics store.

I picked up a few goodies and saw they have a new palette.
See the pictures below.

I was excited to see these since I pretty much got rid of all my mac palettes and converted to the z palette. I have not yet figured out how many shadows I can fit in these but so far they look nice.

You can also buy the inserts for the blushes and shadows if you want to keep them in these.
Below is a picture of the inserts

In closing, I am not sure that I will convert to these, I will have to see how I like them once I have used this one for a little bit.

Until the next one 🙂
Thanks for reading

Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick/Swatches

Today I am trying out some of Avon’s lipsticks.  I picked this color because I thought it be a good color for someone with my skin tone. 

Of course the color is not as bright as what you see in the catalog but its a pretty nice color.  I think it may be a popular shade also for people that like a little lip color.  I thought it looked pretty nice on me.  Below are some pictures.  The cost was $4.99 on sale. 


Avon True Color Eyeshadow Swatches


As a makeup artist I am always trying new makeup and recently the Avon Campaigns have been very inviting.  So I gave in and decided to try out a few things and give them a try. 

Below is my first item, the Avon True Color Quad in Mystery.

I tried this out on my hand with a primer.  The colors are not as vivid as they look.  I also tried them on my mother which is of more of olive skin and felt like I really had to build the color.  I think I would probably combine it with a cream shadow to intensify the colors, but if you’re of very light complexion, this may work just fine.  I did notice without the primer it didn’t last as long either.  That being said, I would definitely use a primer.    Overall for the $5.99 sale price it was ok.  It would be a great quad to start with.  The packaging reminds me of chanel’s quads.
