My Glamxurious Sunday At Hotel Zero Degrees In Danbury

On Sunday I had such an glamxurious day with my crew Ilse & Johnny. It was all about beauty and fashion and when we get together for a fabulous day together we like to spend it at our favorite hotel, Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury, CT.  A few bottles of Mionetto Prosecco and Itz Spritz with a sexy playlist our Sunday was grand.

After a fancy day of taking selfies because that’s what bloggers do we decided to place a room service order but my Libra self was not ready to go up to the room so we ate downstairs by the fireplace. This way we were able to continue with taking fab pics of ourselves. We really luv it here at Hotel Zero Degrees and the staff is always so accommodating to me.

The lights in Hotel Zero Degrees is the best especially in the bathroom. It’s so bright and the space size in their batroom is great, Now this is a bathroom you wouldn’t mind hanging out in.

Fenty Beauty By Rhianna Is The Best Thing That Has Happened To Makeup

FENTY BEAUTYFenty Beauty is a new brand own by music artist Rihanna that’s represents beauty for all, that’s who she is and that’s what she stands for. Something that many makeup brands have never really embraced. So this is why her products are flying off the Sephora shelves everywhere especially the foundations. It’s one of the most expensive items that majority of makeup companies sell besides makeup brushes.

One of the most talked about item from Fenty Beauty is their ultimate PHOTO FILT’R foundation in 40 boundary breaking shades. Usually makeup brands start off with lighter shades of foundation then every few years they add on darker shades. Well, Fenty Beauty has shouted from the mountain top that they are here for ALL WOMEN of all shades. Finally, so many boogie down brown women will now walk around feeling really good because they are wearing the correct foundation shade. To me wearing the correct foundation is like wearing the correct bra, this is why I think Fenty Beauty is the best thing that has happened for women. I feel that Rhi Rhi will not overlook so many women hue when producing products. I can’t wait to see all the fun holiday collections, seasonal and limited edition makeup items Rhi Rhi will add to her makeup line.

Some of the items you can purchase now at Sephora are: primer, foundations, matte skinsticks, shimmer skinsticks, highlighters, contour skinsticks, luminizers, brushes, blotting powder and blotting paper. I’m so grateful for so many reasons but one being that so many women now have a makeup brand to count on…Chi Ching!!!

Beautiful Day Of Makeup At Warren Tricomi Salon on Saturday

 

img_0500-1Another busy day at Warren Tricomi Salon in Greenwich, CT today. The best clients ever are the ones that comes in and let me do my artistry without any paint by number instructions. That’s my biggest pet peeves when I’m dealing with clients at salons. On set the energy is totally different models and celebrities they come in and just get made up.

Today’s clients allowed me to do what I do best they trusted my artistry and I’ll give them my best work.

Here are some fun pics from today.

 

Clarissa is a sexy bride who wanted a smokey look, she did come in with a inspirational picture but she told me to do it my way. At the end she loved her makeup better than the inspirational picture. The highlighter I selected was Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter in Kitten and on her lips I used Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Angelo.

Brittany was going on a date with her hubby to the city and she wanted to look hot. Brittany is a newly newlywed so I wanted to really give her a sultry makeup look. I pulled out some of my fav products as you see, Dior beauty & NARS blush in Orgasm

 

Cuvget Stimulating SerumWith both ladies I prep their skin with ČUVGET Stimulating Serum. I’m such a fan of this serum because I actually see a difference in how my client skin looks instantly and I feel that their makeup look so much better. Not only does their face look flawless but the skin is more radiant. If your looking for a new collagen serum definitely look into ČUVGET because I am obsessed with the results and the ingredients; arctic berries, marine extracts with potent peptides as well as betaglucans that helps to stimulate your stem cells improving your skin after every use.

 

 

Fun Makeup Assignment At The Bravo Media Studio

I am so excited about working this assignment at Bravo Media Studio in New York. After a busy week working the Bruno Mars & The Hooligans assignment I was happy to be working on 2 females that I have so much respect for. Without giving away any info on the assignment my talents were TV Personality JWow, actress Tichnia Arnold and 2 female talents that will have a major role on this episodes.

I had such a great time with JWow in the morning on set, she is such a sweet girl. Love her energy and I luv that she likes to play with makeup. So JWow gave me free range to do what ever with her makeup, my kind of girl. We both luved how Stila cosmetics highlighter showed up on her. The foundation I used was Stila cosmetics Stay All Day Foundation, it’s one of my favorite to use on set because I like the way it shows up on camera and on photos. Here are some of the items I used on JWow.

Tichnia flew in this morning and came straight to the set to work. Now that is what I call A-LIST. On Tichnia I gave her a sultry dark eyes with a nude lip from Dior Beauty. I don’t even know how I got through with doing her makeup. She had me laughing the entire time. I wish more celebrities have her energy and personality on set. We connected over me being a lupus warrior and she luv how I did her makeup. Here are some of the items I used on her.

8 Life-Changing Ways Makeup Artists Store Beauty Products

In July, when POPSUGAR reached out to me about being a part of an upcoming article I was so elated. They shared with me the topic they would be speaking to I knew exactly what I would personally contribute to. On my mirror vanity now sits a few of Bath & Body Works  empty jars that I use to hold my makeup brushes, lipsticks and lip gloss. My favorite scented candle from Bath & Body Works is Black Teakwood. Those sexy masculine aroma of; Rich Mahogany, Black Teakwood, Dark Oak, Frosted Lavender makes me feel so sultry while I’m sitting at my vanity getting dressed.


Here’s a snippet and what I shared with POPSUGAR

If you love collecting new beauty products to the tune of multiple visits to Sephora every month, you’re probably amassing quite the stockpile. And while there’s nothing wrong with trying out the latest and greatest, owning so many products that you can hardly close your vanity drawer or medicine cabinet is no fun. To keep your pretty self sane and all of your favorite products organized and in sight, we asked top makeup artists to share their best-kept secrets for clearing the clutter and streamlining their beauty routines.

Reuse Old Candle Jars

“Because I have an obsession with candles, I always seem to have so many and a variety of sizes so I knew I could do something great with them. Once I was done with the candles, I would break up the remaining pieces using a butter knife, wash out the glass container, and then put the container in the microwave for 20 seconds. Wipe away the melted wax with a paper towel, then stuff the glass with different things. Get creative by gluing on items like beads, crystals, beans, jewelry, or whatever you like!” — Brandy Gomez-Duplessis, celebrity makeup artist
