L'Oreal HIP is kinda 'hip'!

L'Oreal Hip High Intensity Pigments - Kohl Eyeliner

I received a couple of cool looking products from L'Oreal HIP that I enjoyed trying out. The colors intrigued me. I received a navy kohl eyeliner that I use all the time. I wasn't so sure at first when I saw the felt tip applicator. I didn't know what to with it. I wasn't sure if it needed to be wet or not. After clearing up the confusion, I loved it. I totally recommend the eyeliner. It comes in other great colors like gold, burgundy, teal, etc. For more reviews on L'Oreal Hip and other beauty products, log on to

IMATS - What a BLAST!!!

The International Makeup Artist Trade Show (IMATS)- Pasadena, CA affectionately called, 'The Show' is two days (June 20-21,2009) of pure joy (for me anyway). The show is produced by Makeup Artist Magazine (Publisher Michael Key). Before I go any further, I must clear up something. IMATS has been around for more than 10 years. It is currently being confused with another show produced by the other Michael. The Makeup Show is produced by Michael DeVellis of the Powder Group. That show has been around for a few years now. What's so special about IMATS (The Show) is that it is really for those who love the 'art' of makeup. If you want to create creatures and apply bald caps this show is for you. If you want to create great beauty fantasy looks, this show is for you. It covers every aspect of makeup. Although, I do wish that it would incorporate a little more special effects and tone down a little on some of the beauty makeup companies. Don't get me wrong, but there are a lot of companies with the same product (ex. Mineral makeup with glitter and shimmer shadows and pigment). All in all, this has been the best IMATS show in a long time. Great job!!

Beauty Tip Of The Week

To correct a short chin, begin below the lip and highlight down to the end of the chin. This will give the appearance of an elongated chin.

To correct an elongated chin, shade underneath the chin in a darker shade of foundation. This will shorten the chin.

Beauty Tip Of The Week

I was walking through the mall on Saturday, headed to F2O (Fresh To Order) and I saw a Latino woman who looked to be in her early to mid 20's. Her lips were lined with BLACK eyeliner. UGH!!!!!! Thats a no,no in my book! Here are the reasons why this is not a good idea:

1) It doesn't look good at all
2) Its dated. Woman of color were doing this in the 80's. It's 2009!!! Stop it!
3) It doesn't complement anyone's lips.
4) Eyeliner is meant for the eyes and not the lips.
5) There is not ONE cosmetics company that makes black lipliner (if there is, please let me know)

Please do not wear Black eyeliner on your lips!
I did not want to go there with you all, but I had to!!!
