Year 14 of The Makeup Show


“The Makeup Show is so much more than just a trade show. It is a place for artists to network, shop, take classes, set new beauty trends in the industry, and for top brands to launch new products to the pro community. With our increase in education this year there was an even stronger sense of community and inspiration for artists. Our goal for the show is to continuously change people’s lives by creating new opportunities and inspiring artists to advance in their careers. I’m very proud of what this show has become and look forward to continuing to achieve these goal in Orlando, Chicago, and Los Angeles.” 
Shelly TaggarOwner of The Makeup Show

Maybelline Lemonade Craze

This palette screams Summer to me. It has the colors of the sunset and that fruity summer cocktail drink I forgot what it's called. The
Maybelline Lemonade Craze
is a gorgeous palette but there were too many things here that did not work out for me.

Shop Smarter, Not Harder


I didn't major in Finance nor am an expert at saving money. I'm bad at couponing but I'm okay in math. I get so excited when I see savings on my receipt, and see cash back on my Ebates. I'm always about finding the best bang for my buck, who doesn't?!
I also want what's best for my buck. If I'm about to spend some money, I want to make sure that these products are top quality without breaking the bank. I love, love, love to shop and as I get older, I surely have become smarter where to bet my money on.
I hope these shopping tips I'm about to share with you, which you may or may not do already, is helpful and informative enough so you can also shop smarter.

Mini Bag Must-Haves

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own.

I recently have downsized to a smaller purse. Carrying a smaller handbag also meant downsizing the stuff I bring with me. This was a huge change for me since I usually just throw everything that I think I'll need throughout the day in my purse. But having limited space, makes me think twice, and be more strategic of what I bring so I can use up every inch of space in that small bag.

So keep reading if you'd like to know what are my
