How to clean your makeup brushes; a makeup artists tips and tricks.Read More
To me- applying an eye shadow base before applying make up is like brushing your teeth. It's absolutely necessary and NEEDS TO BE DONE!! I am surprised at how many people never use eye shadow primers. A good primer makes all the difference in the world when you want to create a really beautiful professional looking eye look. It helps your eye make up last longer, prevents it from creasing,
brings out the depth of the colors and makes your lid look more even and perfected.
My favorite is "Painterly" Paint Pot from MAC Cosmetics. This is something I really don't go a day without. I have tried dozens of eye shadow primers and I'm still addicted to my Painterly.
Please watch my short video I made talking about this WONDERFUL product!
Run don't walk to get this for your lovely lids if you don't have it already. If you're going to a local MAC store (in the Twin Cities) , feel free to reach out to me for some other product recommendations and I can let the amazing girls that work there that you're coming in. ;)

Many of you may know, today is WORLD AIDS DAY. A few beauty companies that help support and raise awareness for Aids are the following.
MAC COSMETICS. All year round at MAC stop in and take a look at the collection of Viva Glam Lipsticks and Glosses priced at $14.50 US. All of the selling price goes to the MAC AIDS FUND. Yes. I said ALL of the selling price. MAC has been a supporter of the AIDS foundation for years and has raised well over 100 million dollars selling lipsticks and lipglosses alone!!! Another AWESOME item to check out in MAC stores near you are the VIVA GLAM holiday sets. :)
Barielle. The company about nails and toes will be giving 10 % of their proceeds today to the National Aids trust. Barielle has a fantastic Intensive Hand Treatment Cream that restores dry , thirsty hands overnight while you sleep! They also have new holiday nail colors. Check them out at www.barielle.com
Kiehls. Kiehls makes a hand lotion called, Hand Care for a Cure Hand Salve ($12.50). All of the profits from this lotion go to amfAR, an AIDS research charity. Check out Kiehls at http://www.kiehls.com/
