Connecticut Celebrity Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis Featured On Cocotique

It’s always an honor when someone features you in a magazine or on their blog. Being recognized for your talent is always delightful. In the beauty industry where there is so many amazing and talented artists, to be highlighted by a brand means a lot. I met Dana Hill the Founder & CEO of Cocotique while doing makeup at the IBS Show for Absolute NY, a makeup brand who’s makeup I luv using. While at the show Dana and I hit it off right away like two girlfriends. So when Kim Jackson, the Director of Cocotique reached out to me about doing an interview, I was honored. If your a beauty junkie like myself, you must get a subscription of Cocotique monthly beauty box. The ladies always select the best items for you to enjoy. Here’s the article for you to read about me being a COCOBelle!

I Love A Tangy Orange Lip For The Spring & Summer

Like many makeup junkies I never wear all my makeup from one makeup brand. My vanity is a mess with a variety of makeup tossed around. I really don’t know how I know what to put on each morning because I have so much to choose from. Today I was feeling all Absolute New York makeup especially their waterproof gel liner in orange. I selected mostly their new collections to wear today so I decided to share with you their 3 new items. Don’t sleep on this brand, the colors are highly pigmented and the price is definitely easy on the wallet. From the mouth of a makeup artist & a beauty expert you will be obsessed…don’t say I didn’t warn you!
ABSOLUTE NEW YORK True Palettes Eyeshadow In Elements $5.99
ABSOLUTE NEW YORK Waterproof Gel Lip Liner In Orange $4.99
ABSOLUTE NEW YORK Ultra Slick Lipstick in Magical $5.99
