Make-up obsession

Tuesday, April 24, 2012





Ever since i was old enough to wear it, I've been obsessed with make-up.  I have very fond memories of my very first purchase of MAC cosmetics and brushes.  I was about 17 years old when i visited a MAC counter at my local Nordstrom.  I was giddy browsing through all the fun colors available to me!  The MAC artist was very helpful and provided me with wonderful make-up tips.  One thing she taught me was that i could use a wet brush to intensify the color of my eyeshadow.  I spent my first mini-fortune (remember, i was only 17) and knew, there was no turning back!  That's how my inner make-up snob (lowering my head in shame) was born.  Don't get me wrong, i own drug store make-up and there are certain products that i will only buy at a drug store, however, a large bulk of my make-up is purchased from Sephora or at a Department Store simply because of my love and admiration for gorgeous, innovative beauty finds.  So, this is the train case i recently purchased.  It looks very similar to the one i previously had and broke.  It's a good size and fits all of my necessities (OK, it carries way more than what i actually need but you get my point).  The only issue i foresee is the fact that it is pretty full... you know what that means right?  No, i'm not going to stop buying make-up... duh!  I will probably need a second case soon! lol  So i thought it might be interesting to first, show you my case filled with products i own and then perhaps, tackling one product type at a type to blog about!  What do you think?  I'd like to do a few video tutorials at some point as well... perhaps my fabulous sister Joann (Joey) can assist me with those since she's a former MAC artist, who's runway certified and worked the VMA's the last time they were held in NYC!  Cool stuff right?  OK, so here it is... i love hearing from you guys so be sure to leave your thoughts!  If there's something specific you'd like me to start with first, let me know and i'll do my best to show you what i use and what works for me.  Thanks!

    1. That's ok, you have amazing style and don't need much make-up as you are naturally gorgeous! However, if you are not too into make-up but want a few key "multi-tasking" kind of items, keep checking back because i fully intend to blog on a few of my favorites :) xoxo

  16. Make up setting spray??? What?? Is that a before or after thing?

    1. It's an 'after' thing... lol. You wear a primer before applying makeup and a setting spray to keep everything in tact for a longer period of time. Urban Decay makes a really good one! xoxo
