Primers are used for different things. Can L’OREAL Paris dupe the Hourglass prestige product? Do they do the same thing? I was a L’OREAL Paris Pro Makeup Artist for 9 years and I wore L’OREAL Paris makeup everyday. I was always a fan of drugstore makeup because I know the beauty industry secrets.
So Beauty Expert/Actor Johnny Luoma and I got together to make you a fun video to see which beauty products we like the best. So let’s see which one of the products win, drugstore or prestige. What do you think?
So about my breathing as you know I have Lupus so my lungs were giving me a hard time talking and breathing but I pushed through and completed the video while having a great time doing what I love, talking about makeup.
If you’re looking for something new to give a makeup lover I have an item for you. It’s called the Sonicblend Brush from Michael Todd Beauty. Today on Makeup & Martinis, Johnny and I play with a fun summer makeup look for a highlighter lover using the Sonicblend, NARS and Benefit cosmetics. Let us know what you think about the GLOW on Makeup & Martinis.
Remember when I told you that we have our new summer lip colors here’s the video to show you what they look like on. If you haven’t gotten a chance to try them hopefully after watching the video you will see a summer color you like. Entitled Beauty metallic pink shade called “Gurl Bye” is the one we want to send to our friend in our head, Britney Spears. This color is inspired by our love for Britney Spears. What do you think? After watching the video do you think Britney Spears would slay in “Gurl Bye” from Entitled Beauty Cosmetics?
It’s National Lipstick Day and I could not have collaborated with a better organization. When the Lupus Foundation Of America reached out to me to see if I would like to team with them on #NationalLipstickDay I was so honored. With so many Lupus Warriors out there, for me to be on their radar meant a lot. So, of course I said YES!
“I wanted to be a part of Danbury Fashion Week because this is my community” When PJ Prunty President/CEO of Greater Danbury Chamber Of Commerce shared with me that Meagan Neville from Workspace Collective was in talk about putting together Danbury Fashion Week I instantly knew I had to be on the committee,” Brandy Gomez-Duplessis said.
Another fun fact is that Brandy Gomez-Duplessis’ and her business partner Johnny Luoma’s, makeup line Entitled Beauty Cosmetics will be the Official Makeup Sponsor for Danbury Fashion Week. Their Bold Liquid Lipsticks will be perfect for the runway this weekend and their Spotlight Highlighter will have the models glowing radiantly.

Makeup and Martinis is back for Season 2, Summer 2018. I’m so excited to be back filming with Johnny, it’s always so much fun when we get together. I don’t know how we ever complete these videos because we giggle like high schools girls the entire time.
So today’s video is about Prestige makeup brands verse Drugstore makeup brands. The contenders were, KKW Beauty vs Wet n Wild. Johnny was my model like always and the two items we tried out were; concealer and powder. I’m a a fan of both brands, growing up with Wet n Wild. I use to think I was fly wearing Wet n Wild hot pink magenta lipstick. And everyone know how obsessed I am with the gorgeous Kim Kardashian so of course I love KKW Beauty. So this was definitely a hard one for me to do. Watch the entire video and see who I selected.
Let’s see if you can tell the difference, be honest and let me know your thoughts.
