After two amazing days (well three counting the fabulous Blogger preview) at the MakeUp Show I am ecstatically looking forward to the vibrant palette on deck for summer. I noticed everyone at the show rocked a gorgeous red pout. I’m looooving this old becomes new again trend and decided to share a few goodies I snagged while at the show.
Celeb Makeup Artist & Director of Artistry for the MakeUp Show James Vincent says, “If you don’t like cream eyeshadow… you’re STUPID!” His unapologetic humor and witty personality infuses a burst of energy at the show. In grand “Oprah Style”. James shared a few of his favorite products with the makeup lovin’ bloggers and Babbbbby… They are AMAZING!!!
James’ Fave: We all love Kevyn Aucoin….. Though he’s no longer with us, he’s left us with a body of work that will be used as inspiration for makeup artists for generations to come.. The man IS a beauty legend!

Poolside party must-have…..
Award winning, water proof, smudge proof and fade proof eyeliner that works overtime. Used by pros for underwater scenes in films and television and those teary eyed scenes where smudging/running isn’t an option.
Here, MAKE UP FOR EVER’s National Educator Jessie Powers shares her four easy steps for achieving a precisely lined eye using Aqua Liner:
1. Draw a thin line of liquid liner centered on the upper lash line directly above the pupil.
2. To create the liner “tail,” choose the end point of your tail slightly above and outside of the natural lash line. Then, with your eyes open and focused forward, draw a line from the tail’s end point down toward the outer corner of the lash line.
3. Next, with your eyes open and focused forward, draw a line from the end of the tail connecting it to the liner on the center of the upper lash line. Continue these strokes until the tail is completely filled in.
4. Finally, draw a liner from the inner corner of the upper lash line to the middle of the upper lash line, connecting the two sections.
