Products I am Loving Lately

Happy Tuesday guys!  As I have mentioned in several previous posts I have started a new business as a makeup artist and I am seriously loving it!!!!  I have a Facebook page strictly for my business and last night I actually did a Facebook live video talking all about several of my very favorite makeup related products. You can check out the video HERE if you want to watch me on my second attempt at Facebook live. 
Let me just say, it looks way easier then it actually is...and I don't mean I make it look easy, I mean when I watch other people filming live they make it look soooooo easy. 
In the video I promised I would list all of the products I talked about with colors and info so here goes:

Products I am Loving Lately!! 

1// Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick.  I mentioned three colors that I really like and have tried.  They retail for about $5 each...seriously, so affordable and these are amazing!
From top to bottom (or left to right in the other pics):
Berry Recognize- This is the one I was wearing in the video.
Rebel Rose-My, hands down, favorite of the three...a totally wearable color that is so pretty!!
Nice to Fuchsia-a much brighter color

2// Loreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara:  I. LOVE. THIS. MASCARA.  For those people into dupes of high end products, I have heard this is a pretty good one for the Too Faced Better then Sex Mascara. FYI. This gives me both volume and length, which is the perfect combo and hard to find in a mascara, in my opinion. It retails for about $9. 

3//  MAC Lip Conditioner and Paint Pots:  I just love this lip product for two reasons...#1 it makes your lips so soft and smooth and really works, #2 the smell!!!  It retails for $16.  The Paint Pots are a product I have used for probably 10 years now and can't stop praising.  The color I have currently is soft ochre, but i also love painterly.  I use these little guys as eye shadow bases and they are magical!!!  They retail for $22 but last a long time so it is totally worth that money. 

Ok, so there you have it...the products I am especially in love with right now.  Let me know if you have any products you can't live without that I need to be trying...or products you may have questions about that I can try for you and report back.

Two reasons slash excuses...

I know, I know I changed up my blog style and name and then...CRICKETS!  This time I do have a good reason; two good reasons actually. 
Well, three if you count my three year old that is 3 going on sassy 17...that also keeps me busy. 
At any rate...
#1. We are in the process of renovating our entire living/kitchen area. That means, tearing down cabinets, pulling up gross carpet...living in complete disaster for about the next two months. We are in the early stages of this but have been busy planning and picking out what we want our new space to look like. Stay tuned...hopefully I can get my act together enough to share this process with you!!!
For now, here is my hard working dad "helping" me rip out some cabinets...and by helping 
i mean he actually did most of the work and all I could do was continue to annoyingly say "this seems so much easier on HGTV!!" 
**side note, the husband was working on this day or else he would have totally legit been helping my dad**

#2 reason I have been MIA...my new business venture of starting a freelance makeup artistry company!!!!   Holy crap you guys, I am so excited about this. It has been such a dream of mine for so long and i feel like I can finally declare, "I am a makeup artist" when people ask me what I do for work.  I will write a full post all about this later this week as well, but for now you can go check out my website and spread the word.  I do makeup for weddings (bride, mothers, bridesmaids, friends) for special events (photo shoots, a special night out, proms, etc) and I also do personal lessons to teach and explain to you all you wonder about when it comes to doing your own makeup.  Check it all out HERE!!!

Hope everyone had a great Monday!!!
