How to create a flawless complexion and color correct makeup

 

VIEWS  from my penthouse downtown.

The month of March has been absolutely amazing! Are you guys loving the sunshine as much as I am? I just realize that I’ve been completely distance from the world lately and slacking on my blogging! I swear I’m not trying to avoid you guys, I just been really really really busy! I decided to spend the whole day dedicated to uploading pictures on what’s been happening in my life!

Before we can create something in our worlds, we need to craft it in our heads. As Vincent Van Gogh write about his masterpieces, “The thing has already taken form in my mind before I start on it.” It’s true for paintings, and it’s true for our lives as well. If we see it, there’s a good chance we can figure how to do it.

This week at the Studio… my model Lily Le called me up for a special event.

My Job:  Create a flawless rockstar look  and cover up the mark on her chin.

Before & After

 

For great flawless coverage I always turn to MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Products. They’re the best for hiding any unwanted problem areas.

I started with MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Elixir - An innovative serum that instantly hydrates and adds radiance to the skin.

Prepped the the face with HD Microperfecting Primer and applied Invisible Cover Foundation #125 Sand – for light skin with beige undertone.

 

I also used MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

COLOR: NC30

I filled in Lily’s eyebrows with MAC Eyebrow Pencil Spiked

I added M.O.D.E.L 21 False Eyelashes for a bigger Doll Eye’s appearance.

For the Lips: I used MAC Naked Liner and layered MAC Myth Lipstick with MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick Behave Yourself for light pink color.

Quickly added some wavy soft curls with a 1.5″ curling iron and this completes the look.

When I’m at work my daughter Naomi gets babysat over at her grandma’s and

Look what my mom made for fun.. a Pink Toddler & Tiara’s Ball Gown Dress

I KEEP TRYING TO TELL HER SHE’S ONLY 3 YEARS OLD…

Her little pecks won’t even hold up the dress

As if my princess isn’t spoiled enough..

Her Daddy just gave her an iPhone so she can take pictures … What has the world come to…

Naomi’s crazy about Candy Crush so please send her some lives! She’s only on Level 35

Here’s my baby suppose to be napping… Instead she’s making Siri spell out gibberish on her Notes.

On my Day-Off’s I love taking her to go play.  Here’s some pictures from OMSI with Daddy

Naomi’s first time petting a snake because it’s YEAR OF THE SNAKE

Life’s a Beach! She loves digging in the sand and making new friends.

I can watch my daughter play for hours! It’s wonderful seeing how fast she’s growing up and how well she interact with other kids.

LUNCH BREAK! Here’s Daddy & Naomi at Theory a new eatery at OMSI

At the end of the day I’m so thankful to have my little family.

We’re not perfect, but we’re happy and that’s more than I can ask for.

The HIGHLIGHT of my week is… having my Kassab Jewelery Designer Manila personally deliver my diamonds to the studio!

Thank you so much girl for my Versace Earrings and for all the things you do!

Say Hello to my NEW TACORI Rose Amethyst 18K White Gold Cocktail Ring.

 Sometimes I pinch myself to see if my Life is a really REAL… because I honestly don’t want to wake up from my Dream.

I love all the wonderful people that makes my world positive and I appreciate all the support from my friends and family helping me build my career as a Makeup Artist.  My only addiction I have is accomplishments and to always self educate myself. This is my year to shine and I’m not going to stop. I have too many people riding on this bet and I can’t lose. Thank you for believing in me, I will not let you guys down and I will only go Harder.

Love Always,

Julie

Friday Favorite – Captain America & Butterfly Girl

 

 

“Being in a band you can wear whatever you want – it’s like an excuse for halloween everyday.”
-Gwen Stefani

This year my Halloween Costume Theme was super heroes and I was picked to be Captain America. Philly and I recently just rented The Avengers for the first time, and if I could re-pick who I wanted to be, it would be Iron Man! Captain America is weak in the movie, and Iron Man would totally destroy him! >_< 

A strong woman won’t let anyone get the best of her. A women of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.

 

Here’s a video of Naomi trick-or-treating around my parent’s neighborhood. My little Butterfly girl and was flying all over the block and running to every house with the porch light on..

We did one full circle, and Naomi was ready to head back home to count out how many pieces she earned and to simply eat them. We managed to fill up a whole tote bag full with our secret tactics… We would dump all the candy into my purse and when Naomi went up to ring the next door, her bucket would look empty and they would give her 2 or 3 pieces instead of one! Works like a charm!!! ^_^

I enjoy seeing everyone all dressed up in their fun halloween costumes and being creative and in characters.Naomi was giving out handful of treats to everyone who rang on Grandma’s door and we still managed to have left overs candy! A little witch came up and told me she liked my makeup and said I looked like a real Rockstar.. lol she was so sweet I gave her an extra Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup and a Snicker too.

I hope you guys all had a spooky Halloween and I can’t wait to bust out the Christmas Sweaters because it’s Cuddle Season!!!!!
