May has come and gone! This has been a beautiful wonderful month. A lot is happening in the good old state of Colorado. Last night we experienced a 3.7 earthquake. That was rare for us. I have to say it made me thankful that we don’t live in California. Cosmetology school is crazy right now, I have finished the hair portion completely, I did my pre-skin classes and am now taking clients for facials, back treatments, body wraps, and make up! I am so excited! I love make up and now I feel more qualified to be a make up artist! I have been doing a lot of make up on other people now! I have been really blessed to go to a school where we get to work with such great product lines such as Redken, Pravana, Mirabella, and Dermalogica. This leads me to my first favorite:
This is the Medibac Spot Concealing Treatment by Dermalogica. To say that I love this product would be an under statement. When ever I have the worst breakout or only one or two pimples this stuff clears them up in one to two days. The back of the tube says “An intense treatment with a natural looking tint that quickly targets, conceals, and helps clear breakouts.”
Now I have to say the first time I used this product I thought the color was way to dark for my skin, but then I followed the directions on the back of the tube. If you place a couple of dots on the breakout and wait a few minutes and then rub it in it matches your skin tone. I would have to say that this really clears up the breakouts with in 24 hours. I carry this in my purse. Love, love this product!
Too Faced Chocolate Bar has to be the palette that I have used the most this month. The shadows are super pigmented and creamy and there are a multitude of color options. My favorite look is using the Gilded Ganache for a dark smoky eye with the milk chocolate as the transition and the white chocolate as the highlight! I also love that Too Face includes eye shadow layouts so that you have different looks to play with. I believe this palette is a must have for any make up collection, and did I mention it smells like chocolate?
Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded. This is my all time favorite. I actually use this as my base shadow or eye shadow primer. It really brightens and intensifies any eyeshadows that you may use. I particurally love to use the is the Chocolate Bar palette. It says it last 24 hours and I would have to say its not far off that. We tested them out on a girls make up at school. We applied them at noon and then she was going to wear them till the next day. When she came in it was still there it had just faded(barely). I like it because it doesn’t fade. Definitely worth having.
Jordana Fabu-Liner both the regular and the bold pens. I really like the tips and how you can get a nice crisp line. I would like them even better if they didn’t come off if they got wet. I do like that once you apply them, and they set you can rub your eyes and it doesn’t budge. Waterproof would be great though!
Equate Oil free Eye Make up Remover, this is the best. I have really sensitive skin and I used to use regular baby wipes to take makeup off but that was making my face red and sore, then I started using the Neutrogena Oil free make up remover and really like it. I went to replace it one day and grabbed the Equate one by accident and I am glad I did. I really feel that the Equate one helps to melt the make up so much better than the Neutrogena one and it is half the price!
