I know it's been a while, so I wanted to hop on here and talk about a few goodies I've got lately. :-)
First off, if you follow me on instagram (lrzuber09), you would have see this:
I purchased these about a month ago. I absolutely LOVE Sigma's brushes. I'd really like to get the Synthetic Essential collection and then I might be set for a while. :-) I was beyond shocked how pigmented the Paris palette is. It's not an every day (at least for me) palette but it's nice for special occasions.
Today I applied Versailles all over my lid/brow bone area, very lightly with E55 the and then used my Sigma E15 to line my bottom and top lash lines with Louvre. It's a simple look using a bold color that won't get TOO noticed. ;-)
The Sigma MAXBag is HUGE!!! It'll be great for my personal travel.
I'll admit, Sigma brushes ARE NOT MAC brushes, however, they have some that are very similar and some that preform the same tasks as some MAC brushes, with great quality and a great price. Some are true duds, but some are pure perfection!
I also purchase the new NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. I was at Sephora and kindly asked the girl which shade she thought I should get. She had me take a seat and swatched Finland and Alaska on me. Alaska would work if I had a LITTLE more color, but Finland blended right in. I'm so sad about that though. That means anyone lighter than me will have to skip this product. :( I really love it. I'm in love with Origins VitaZing (picked up a back up with my NARS) but some days I want a TAD more coverage. The NARS is great at that and then I usually top if off with NARS Loose Powder in Flesh.
Yes, I'm very weird about that stuff.... I like to stick brands together.
I think the next few things on my wishlist will be the MAC Electric Cool Shadows. It's very tempting to get them all, but I know a few of the colors won't get the love they deserve.
I am also dying for the new UrbanDecay Smoky palette and then they just released their Naked Skin Foundation with the Optical Blurring Brush. Eep!!!
I should also mentioned I ordered the 3 Sugarpill Cosmetics palettes with Bulletproof Eyeshadow. I.CAN'T.WAIT!!! So not my normal thing but this shadows I've heard great things about and I've been wanting them for a while.
It's been a really good spring/summer for me. I've had 2 weddings, including 2 trials and 1 lesson. It was a great experience. I was a little nervous for the first wedding, but once I started, it all just fell into place. I was booked to do the bride, her mom and her future sister-in-law's eyes. However, after I started on the bride, her sister wanted her makeup done as well! And then her future sister-in-law wanted her whole face done, and then 2 more bridesmaid's wanted their makeup done! Thankfully I had no plans for the day and easily made them all more beautiful!
The second wedding was a bit less stressful. ;-) I did the bride's makeup and her maid of honor as she rarely wears eye makeup. Beautiful girls to work with. The maid of honor is getting married this October and I think she'll book me then too. Actually her friend's mom's already enquired about it. ;-)
Well, I think that's all I have for today!
