Who's ready for another teaser?
Guess who's back?! My vacation was absolutely amazing! I can't wait talk about it and share some cool photos with you all, but that post will have to wait. It's back to business today!
While away, I was asked to be a part of two spectacular shoots both of which happened to be the day after my return; however, I couldn't resist! The morning after my late night return to Canada I was at the salon running off coffee and grinding away before hours. No sleep for this girl. If I have an amazing opportunity I will do whatever is necessary to make it happen!
Here is a sneak peek teaser from one of the makeup looks I created for La Shaun Stannard before she left to be styled, and to model on the set of a very cool location that I won't yet disclose! We went with classic Marilyn Monroe inspired makeup for this shoot. The teaser for the second makeup look of the day will be posted separately. Stay tuned!
Photo Shoot Faves
I love working with girls who have sass, edge and a vision! La Shaun had exactly that. She came in with confidence and knew what she wanted from the beginning. After talking boho meets rocker and getting a feel for her shag fur coat and pile of bronze jewlery she let me work my magic. Thanks to her trust in me, and the assistance of everyone else involved, I think we nailed it! I couldn't be happier!

After much anticipation my January Glam Bag has arrived! I can't wait to try out my new goodies. Here's a breakdown of what I received this month.
The Balm Cosmetics Mr.Write Now eyeliner pencil in "Jac"
Crown Brush C413 Brow Duo
City Color Cosmetics Eyeshadow Trio in "Falling Leaves"
Mitchell & Peach body cream in "English Leaf"
Skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths
I'm already a huge fan of The Balm. I have also received a few other products from Crown Brush and Michell & Peach in past ipsy glam bags which I loved, so I'm excited to try them again.
I find the products that I received this month will definitely be put to good use given my travel plans. I will be heading to Mexico tomorrow, so the travel size package of makeup wipes and the lotion are a must. The eyeshadow trio is also handy in providing a range of shades without taking up the space three single eyeshadows would. The colors in the eyeshadow trio are very neautral, but beach-like colors with a hint of shimmer that I can see working with any look!
I hope you enjoyed your glam bag this month if you subscribe. Feel free to share what you received in the comments below. I would love to connect and talk beauty!
I recently had the privilege of working on the gorgeous @lashaunmonique15 before one of her photo shoots! She came into @salonluminous for the full hair and makeup experience with Missy and I.
We went for a bohemian rocker mix, and I'm so happy with how it turned out! I can't wait to share the finished look with you all after the outfit and setting are added to the mix. Who's excited to see this edgy look in action?
Valid for 48 hours only!
If you have been contemplating signing up for ipsy do it now!
I highly recommended them, and so do many other beauty gurus which is why the program has been so successful. It's so popular in fact that most new members are usually waitlisted for a month or more before ipsy is able to gather their beauty results and send out their first glam bag. I personally waited two months before they could accommodate me when I initially signed on. This is not a complaint as it was definitely worth the wait, but I mean who wants to wait when they don't have to? When we're excited about something we tend to want it now right? I know I can't be alone in this!
With that said, ipsy has temporarily lifted the waitlist for new customers who sign up within the next 48 hours! In using my referral link (by clicking on the photo above) you will not only skip the wait list, but I will also receive ipsy points towards product purchases on their site. Talk about a win-win situation! :)
I hope that some of you take advantage of this offer. Let me know if you do. You won't be disappointed!
